MENIERE’S DISEASE HEALED
Recurring episodes of vertigo, hearing loss, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), fullness in the ear, and nausea
“It was just a matter of time. Then in February my symptoms hadn’t come back and I kept fighting everyday to avoid the vertigo from coming back.”
It all started in March 2012, when I was at work and noticed I was feeling a bit dizzy. I had no idea what it was. I’m a person that has a proper diet and live a productive healthy lifestyle. As I sit in my break room just thinking about the last thing I ate that made me feel dizzy and thought, that couldn’t of been it. My dad had picked me up from work as I couldn’t function anymore. As I get to my house I couldn’t stop vomiting and was feeling miserable with a painful headache. I fell asleep and woke up 3 hours later and it was gone. I had no idea what it could have been but I continued my day normally as I do every other day. Then about a month later on April I felt the same exact feeling as I did the month before. My dad had to pick me up from work and had to go home again. As I continue to live a productive healthy lifestyle I wouldn’t get it again for another 2 months and got it a few times in July and several times in August, September and October. I was feeling miserable and thought it was an early sign that maybe my life was coming to an end. I went ahead to do my own research as to why I was getting dizzy a lot. I was googling all of my symptoms and it was due to an inner ear problem.
I went to Mexico in September to get further treatment. I went to see an ENT (ear, nose, and throat) doctor and saw that I had some sort of rupture in my ear due to some injury that I had as a child. He then sent me to an audio specialist to do a few testings on my ear. After 2 hours were tested I got the results and went back to my ENT doctor and as he reads the results he sees that I have been diagnose with Meniere’s disease. This disease includes recurring episodes of vertigo, hearing loss, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), fullness in the ear, and nausea. My doctor also told me to have a very restricted diet as to not have any high amounts of salt, sugar, artificial sweeteners, alcohol and caffeine. He said by eliminating or reducing these foods I may reduce my symptoms. The doctor then prescribed me few medications. As I take the medication I felt a like it was going away slowly and maybe lasted about 2 weeks as all of my symptoms came back. I did not know what to do anymore as I thought I had done everything possible to cure my disease. As I spoke with other people via online with Meniere’s disease they had told me that it’s a disease that I would have to live with for the rest of my life and to know what foods I’m eating as to what could been triggering me to get vertigo. After having a restricted diet I was still getting the symptoms and at this point was lost and didn’t know what to do anymore.
Then my sister who works at Natural Medicine Acupuncture and herbs told the doctor about my symptoms. The doctor wanted to see me and have a consultation and talk to him about my symptoms. He then said he can help me with a positive tone and not to worry because he’s had patients in the past with Meniere’s disease and was able to help them before and could help me if I follow a simple program. He wanted to see me 3 times a week for an acupuncture visit and to take the herbs he provides everyday 2 times a day. So I decided to take the program which at this point I was desperate for anything to cure my disease. On November 2, 2012 was my first day of the program. After week I felt like it was going away slowly. On the 2nd week everything was going fine and I felt like my symptoms where going away slowly. Then in December my symptoms came back. Every time my symptoms would come back it would last about 12 hours. The doctor then told me not to worry as I should keep taking my herbs every day and keep eating healthy. My symptoms disappear and came back on January and got them several times and the doctor told me to not worry as he would be doing his best to cure me. I kept fighting and I knew if I keep following with the treatment I know it would disappear soon.
It was just a matter of time. Then in February my symptoms hadn’t come back and I kept fighting everyday to avoid the vertigo from coming back. It is now July and my symptoms have not returned. The doctor has done everything he can to help my disease. He was very positive he can help me and was not going to give up until it was gone. It has been more than 5 months since my last vertigo and I continue each day to fight and live a healthier life. With the power of God and Dr. Huang anything can be done.
