Dr. Peter Wehling Founder of The Center for Molecular Orthopedics in Dusseldorf, Germany has developed a procedure where the patient’s own blood is taken, incubated and manipulated then reintroduced into the body and acts as a “natural” anti-inflammatory. Originally this was used for treating sports people to combat chronic pain, usually in joints. The treatment is called “Orthokine” therapy
The ear is affected by inflammation in Meniere’s disease and the procedure is said to have been developed further where it may be possible for the hearing and balance nerves damaged by Meniere’s to be healed. Dana White, the UFC President recently received this treatment in Germany is said to feel “cured”.
It can not be said to be a cure as such because it doesn’t deal with the original cause (something we have been spending a lot of time on of late) but if it can be combined with finding the original cause, be it viral, spinal and neck misalignment, exposure to chemicals or drugs, autoimmune problems, dental or Jaw misalignments or whatever, not only can we deal with the cause and fix it but there is the possibility perhaps of reversing the long standing effects and results of years of vertigo attacks and constant pressure within the inner ear that have caused hearing deterioration and balance nerve damage.
All this is a far cry from the much misinformed and common assumption among many in the medical community that Meniere’s disease is a condition or syndrome that can not be put right. Maybe there will come a day soon when doctors will stop telling patients to just take the same old diuretics and tranquilizers and telling them to “learn to live with it” or refer them for steroid injections and invasive surgery, neither of which addresses the cause; only the symptoms.
Update January 2014: This treatment is now available in the UK & US but not for Meniere’s disease. One report we had alleged you can get it done at a private clinic in California but have to book in on the pretense that you are having the treatment for knee or other joints. Not quite sure how that would work It was reported that it would cost $10,000 plus.
