Meniere’s Disease (Ears)

Bryan Applications, M

A group of symptoms which are habitually associated is called a syndrome or complex. In Meniere’s syndrome (after the French physician, Prosper Meniere) the symptoms are giddiness, deafness and noises in one or both ears, and sickness and vomiting. Such symptoms come on suddenly and with great severity when bleeding occurs into the internal ear, or labyrinth, in which case the condition is described as Meniere’s disease.

This is not at all common, but the occurrence of similar symptoms, though probably not so sudden in their onset, from causes other than bleeding into the labyrinth, is fairly frequent. Between the attacks the patient may be free from giddiness, but sometimes more or less unsteadiness persists. The treatment during an attack is to keep the patient at rest in a darkened and quiet room and restrict him to a light diet. People who are liable to such symptoms should avoid alcohol, tea, coffee and tobacco. See: Dizziness.. Ear..

Application and treatment:

When there is an infection in the nose or throat, bacteria sometimes get into the eardrum through the Eustachian tubes, which are the passages leading from the nose cavities and mouth into the inner ear. Infection can be prevented by gargling or spraying with apple cider vinegar diluted 2 tsp to a glass of water, half of which should be swallowed. Pus can readily be devitalized by application of 727, 787, and 880 Hertz with positive polarization, for 5 minutes daily.

A symptom of ear infection is pain in the ear which may be associated with inflammation of jaw joints, unerupted wisdom tooth, throat infection or sinus infection. In a normal earache from swimming in water, relief can be received by heating a little olive oil and by absorbing it in a piece of cotton which is placed in the ear when sleeping at night. An acute infection is called Otitis Media while one that goes on in to the mastoid is called Mastoiditis.

Impacted dried earwax (cerumen) is an important cause of deafness. Some may produce large amounts of earwax which is usually hard, but mixed with water, softens and acts as a culture medium for bacteria. The condition often follows swimming. Inflammation may be acute or chronic. Infection may be caused by colds or other illness in the passage connecting the throat and the ears. Infections may be readily controlled by use of the frequency Instrument at 727 Hertz, 787 Hertz, and 880 Hertz using very low output. Ear wax may be removed with hydrogen peroxide as a solvent with a cotton applicator. If chewing food causes pain, it is probably an inflammation of the outer ear; avoid excessive exercise and bathing. An old remedy is to use warm olive oil in a cotton ear plug.

Loss of hearing on one side presents a problem in balanced hearing. Otosclerosis is one of the most serious forms of deafness caused by bony growths in the inner ear which hinder sound conduction. As a person grows older, the growths can become increasingly worse. The exact degree of deafness must be determined in each ear. The Audiometer is one of the devices used to test hearing. The ticking of a watch at different distances on each side of the ear is another.

Pressure from an impacted wisdom tooth may be another cause. chronic ailment is Meniere’s disease which interferes with inner ear function and may be accompanied by nausea and vomiting with dizziness and noises in one or both ears. For women use positive polarity on both ears; for men use negative polarity after positive. Time: 5 minutes on each polarity. Daily.
