Message from John Ingram – the charity founder of Deaf to Menieres :
“Ten years ago I thought my life was over. I was having regular vertigo attacks lasting for hours, constant dizziness, chronic fatigue, hearing loss, tinnitus, severe brain fog and being told that I had Menieres Disease and there was no cure. I was afraid to leave the house in case I had a vertigo attack and I wondered if I would be able to work or drive a car again.
Now 10 years on I’m in great health and lead a perfectly normal life, I still work full time and I’m a keen sportsman regularly completing half marathons with my local running club.
Everything I did to achieve this successful return to health is documented in these website pages. I formed the UK based charity Deaf to Menieres so that I could share what I have learned about Menieres Disease and how to recover from it.
As a charity we have been running for a number of years now and have helped multiple sufferers address their symptoms and return to a normal life.
My personal mission is to make cutting edge science accessible to all Menieres Disease sufferers. We continually study scientific discoveries made by amazing research teams across the world and try to summarise them into easy tips that can help you manage your Menieres Disease symptoms.
I hope in reading this you will join with us and receive the benefit of our learning of how to overcome Menieres Disease. Even better you will join with us and make a small donation to our annual regulatory costs of running a charity in the UK.
I wish you the best of health and the best of luck in your journey to recovery.“
Please note we are patients not doctors so any tips suggested on this website are not medical advice and should be checked by your doctor.
Please join us and help us support medical research which can help all Menieres Disease sufferers.
The results shown above were achieved with the Menieres Disease Treatment Protocol Trial which we funded and was firmly based on the latest research available for Menieres Disease. You can see the testimony from the patient who achieved these scores here
Feedback from Deaf to Menieres member Lee Mcintosh, Sydney, Australia following his succesful completion of our treatment programme designed with Jan Clementson :
“In my near 4 year journey with Menieres symptoms of vertigo and hearing loss, Jan has been key in my recovery. After seeing 5 different types of ENT specialists, Jan was by far the most helpful and I would say had the most impact on my improvement of symptoms. In fact, nearly a year completing my program with her I am almost symptom free and leading a very normal healthy life, The nutritional tips and protocols she has given me have benefited a number of other aspects of my health and mental well-being. Hand on heart, I can say I would be in a far worse place if I had not come across Jan and her expertise. Given her recent focus on Menieres I believe she is more of an expert than any ENT I have dealt with and unlike most of them – she really listens and cares. For anyone suffering through Menieres I really recommend getting in touch with her! “
Deaf to Menieres are a partner organisation for 2nd Chapter productions who have just started production of a documentary about Menieres Disease,
If you have any questions on Menieres Research let us know and we will pass on your requests to the producers.
We have now completed phase one of our investigation into Stem Cell research with our research partner Dr Arianna Ferrini who is an expert in stem cell and gene therapy. As a result of this work we believe stem cell treatment has potential to make a great difference to the lives of people suffering from Menieres Disease.
We have also commissioned research papers looking at the potential success of other protocols in treating Menieres Disease :
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- Ozone Therapy
We are also running case studies with Menieres Disease sufferers through our partnership with functional practitioner Jan Clementson.
Based on the latest scientific research Jan has created a testing programme for our Menieres Disease sufferers using blood samples, nasal swabs, urine and stool samples. Jan then uses the results from these tests to identify root causes and inform suitable treatment protocols also based on the latest amazing scientific research.
For the future benefit of Menieres Disease sufferers Jan is also documenting the results from these case studies to evidence outcomes of the tests and treatments applied .
Jan works remotely and has clients globally, so she can help you where ever you are in the world.
Running a legal entity Charity is an expensive operation in the UK to ensure we conform with the necessary regulatory and compliance legislation in place. To keep Deaf to Menieres running we need to raise £2,000 each year.
Hence it would really help if you would join us. The more members we have the more work we can do to help existing and future Menieres Disease sufferers.
I wish you the best of health and if you are a Menieres sufferer reading this then I hope you find this website useful and starts you on the road to improvement.
