Aside from dietary changes, we also recommend lifestyle changes to help alleviate Meniere’s disease symptoms.
Rest during and after vertigo attacks. Eat healthy and regularly to help your body regulate fluids.
As much as possible, you need to manage your reaction to stressful situations. Once you feel an unpleasant emotion or feel really stressed, Meniere’s disease symptoms may surface. You can manage stress and anxiety through meditation, therapy or medication.
Nicotine and allergies are also known to make Meniere’s symptoms worse. If you are a smoker, you might need to cut down on your cigarette intake to avoid triggering allergies and worsening your Meniere’s disease.
There’s also a study by Dona Kiossef published in AHA Journal that came to a conclusion that a patient with Meniere’s disease may exhibit irregular blood pressure during stress, even while taking hypertensive medications. It’s also worth noting that even after the stressor has disappeared, the blood pressure remained to be elevated and in some cases, continued to rise.
We don’t need to re-emphasize the importance of seeking medical attention to deal with Meniere’s disease.
