It has long been suspected that virus could be the initial trigger which causes an autoimmune or a compromised immune system response leading then to Menieres symptoms.
There is a research paper here which establishes the link showing that a course of anti virals can improve Menieres symptoms in some cases.
A natural approach to anti virals is fairly straightforward and can be tackled by a safe and effective easily available supplement regime.
If you have concerns about the impact of these on your health or interaction with other drugs you are taking you should consult a doctor before taking antiviral supplements. In our experience a rotation every few months of a couple of different antivirals at one time is the most effective way of reducing your viral load.
You could try rotating a combination of antiviral supplements made up of some of the following :
Vitamin C – The daily need for an adult human to maintain good health varies according to each individual but is generally thought to be between 2,000 mg and 20,000 mg per day. But if in doubt a general dose of 4,000 mg per day would be reasonably effective.
Quercetin + Zinc – Quercetin acts as an ionophore to assist the zinc to penetrate the cells and kill the viruses. Dosage would be Quercetin 2 x 500 mg per day and Zinc 50 mg per day.
Lysine – 3,000 mg per day as an initial dosage moving to 100 mg per day after 3 months as a maintenance dosage.
Monolaurin, Olive Leaf Extract, Oregano Oil Gel Caps – with these you would start with a low dosage then gradually increase until you find your personal die off point highlighted by flu like symptoms. Then reduce at that point until you stabilise then increase dosage again. Once you no longer experience die off then you can reduce your dosage to a low maintenance one.

The virus theory has been backed up by research at the MRFi in Sydney Australia who had been running a trial to identify a virus in the body of Meniere’s sufferers and then clear the virus by increasing the circulating antibodies within the body.
There is a great presentation here explaining how Meniere’s symptoms occur in your ear.
It’s given by World Leading Meniere’s expert Professor Bill Gibson at the Meniere’s Research Foundation institute (MRFi) at their 5th Annual Symposium in Sydney Australia on 3rd November 2018.
He explains his theory of how a virus can persist within the inner ear even though it may not show up on standard blood tests.
He starts at 1:11:08 describing how a Meniere’s attack occurs.
At 1:25:00 he explains how he is trying in his proposed human study to identify a virus in the body and then boost the circulating antibodies to destroy it before it reaches the Endolymphatic Sac or Cochlea.
The resulting treatment programme could be a course of the appropriate anti virals to address any virus found.
