I believe that Sirlanc's findings are based on as much information as everyone elses (including other experts). While some findings sometimes contradict another's - to me that is more of a sign of how this disease changes and impacts each of us differently. There is no true "one way" of how Meniere's acts or responds. Some people get relief through dietary changes; some thru antivirals; some thru surgical methods. Reality is that in my mind each person has to judge their situation and what is acceptable with outcome, risks, etc....and what is right for them. With that, another outlook like Sirlanc's is important as it shows yet another side of this beast. I visit this board to learn more everyday about Meniere's (most times feel like I know as much if not more than most doctors). But for me the information is invaluable because doctor's only share what "they" believe is the truth and answer; rarely do they share the full story and possibilities. Here we can learn about what other people experienced and figure out which one we relate to the most in terms of experience. I still hope for the day that someone develops a "one fix for all" for Meniere's. Until then, I appreciate and thank everyone for sharing their experiences, thoughts, observations, etc.
