Posted Under: General Information on Meniere's Disease / Syndrome
Found this interesting article by Jean Perrins regarding a “possible” connection with acidosis and Meniere’s Disease….here is a summary:
There is currently inconclusive scientific proof as to the cause of Meniere’s disease, but all of the clients in my clinic have responded to alkaline, ionized water. That points a finger at dehydration. It makes sense because inflammation caused by acidosis and dehydration can cause tissues to swell. Some evidence points to middle ear infection, syphilis, head injury, viral illness, respiratory infection, stress, fatigue, use of OTC and prescription medications, allergies, smoking, alcohol use and genetic factors. All of the above creates acidity in the body with the exception of genetic factors which only govern 35 percent of what is going on. The other 65 percent is within our power to change.
I will continue to offer alkaline, ionized water to Meniere’s sufferers to see if they all respond to the alkaline, ionized water. It is a very specific kind of water, made in a machine that hooks up to your kitchen faucet. It changes the tap water into alkaline, super-oxygenated, super hydrating, high antioxidant water that rids the body of free radicals, free radical damage and toxins. It actually restores the body to its most natural pH, which is near neutral. Most importantly, it stops the dizziness, nystagmus and vomiting in its tracks.
***2014 Comment: Dehydration has been linked to drop attacks so this may not be as obscure as it sounds.****
Alkaline, ionized water helps to restore the body’s pH balance and thus symptoms that occur because this balance is lost, return to normal. If you are plagued with this debilitating condition, you may want to try adjusting your body pH.

This was posted in 2009. Now in 2013 I can say I have heard very little about this since. I am not dismissive of anything but it has to be said we have been shown very little evidence of Acidosis being a major factor in the symptoms of Meniere’s. If you have any experience or evidence that shows it is a factor we would love to hear from you either by email or posting on here.
