Ménière’s Disease is a condition of the inner ear that affects balance, vision, nausea and even hearing loss. One symptom may present or in severe case all symptoms simultaneously. An estimated 3-5 million Americans suffer with the condition in some capacity.1
The exact cause for Ménière’s Disease is unknown but the way it affects people is understood. Researchers at the University Of Colorado School Of Medicine believe to have found how the condition starts. Neurosurgeons are examining the link between low blood flow to the brain as the root cause.1 For the brain to properly function blood flow is essential in delivering oxygen as well as removing metabolic waste. If proper blood flow is not happening there will be negative affects on the brain; which controls every function in the body through the nervous system. Treatment methods for Ménière’s Disease are limited and often leave both doctors and patients searching for alternatives.
In this day and age many patients are seeking natural treatments for Ménière’s Disease. In Upland, CA Ménière’s Disease Specialist, Dr Tymothy Flory, is helping patients get natural relief. Dr Flory is an Upper Cervical Chiropractor that specializes in the alignment Atlas bone (C1 vertebra). It has been scientifically proven that when the Atlas is out of its proper position that not only is the brain and nervous system affected, but also the arteries and veins buried in the cervical spine.2
As an Upper Cervical Chiropractor, Dr Flory uses an exacting method of analyzing the Atlas bone and delivering a precise, gentle chiropractic adjustment when needed. This method has been shown in clinical study of 139 Ménière’s Disease patients to not only improve symptoms but have complete resolution in some cases. When the Atlas is properly aligned blood flow and brain function can return to normal as healing takes place.
