The Problems with Diet
We regard an effective anti inflammatory diet as being the key front line defence against Meniere’s disease. A review of diet and lifestyle is recommended before proceeding to the more complex testing which may be required for other causes of Meniere’s Disease.
The latest research suggests that Ménière’s is caused by inflammation within the endolymphatic sac.
A western diet and lifestyle has led to an increase in inflammatory type diseases. Three foods commonly trigger an inflammatory response within the body: gluten, dairy and sugar.

It is also worth watching this You Tube interview with Dr Kenneth Brookler an eminent Meniere’s ENT Consultant in the US who talks about Hyperinsulinemia , Insulin response and the glucose requirement of the inner ear. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-5gohctcJE&feature=youtu.be
5 minutes to 10 minutes – he talks about impacts of nutrition on the inner ear and success with Menieres patients
33 minutes to 41 minutes – he talks of the inner ear demand for blood sugar being three times that of the brain and the effect of spikes of blood sugar
Dr Brookler found once he recruited nutritionists into his practice the adjustment of patients lifestyles and diet greatly relieved symptoms and often reduced the need for further treatment protocols.
