Ménière’s Disease affects many people in their normal lives and even some celebrities. Most recently 2015 Grammy nominee Ryan Adams talked about living his life with this condition. He has openly discussed the ups and downs of heaving the condition and almost quit music as a result. He describes the condition on good days as having the sounds of wind and a siren in his ears, and the bad days like standing in front of a jet engine.1
Ménière’s Disease is a condition that affects approximately 200 out of 100,000 people, starting around the age of 40 years old. The disease affects the inner ear which is responsible for balance and coordination. There are currently no FDA approved treatments for the condition and a wide array of treatment options. Adams sought out treatments ranging from hypnotherapy to medical marijuana and has been able to be functional through diet and lifestyle changes.2
Many people suffer with the disease and have little to no success with traditional treatment options. However Ménière’s specialist Dr. Grayson Blom is helping patients get natural relief from Ménière’s Disease in Boise Idaho. As an Upper Cervical Chiropractor Dr Blom focuses on the relationship between the first bone in the spine known as the Atlas (C1 vertebra).
There is a proven correlation between the misalignment of the Atlas bone and Ménière’s Disease symptoms. In patients groups as large as 139 patients with Menieres Disease, all had suffered trauma to the neck and Atlas misalignments. The misalignment was shown to be corrected in as little as 1 or 2 adjustments and giving patients as much as a 70% reduction in symptoms3 naturally.
