    For years now I've been researching Menieres - not in the sense that the doctors do - but the way a sufferer who simply HAS to find answers will: relentlessly. By doing this, I made my way back to full health, where even my hearing returned. As most will know, I've now released a book on this subject, and am also more than happy to share what I have learned here. It is quite stunning how much information has gone 'missing'.

    This thread is not about seeing a Chiro, or a physio, or a specialist ... it's about what WE can do for ourselves. The ideas are therefore free. So, I thought I'd open this thread up for all those willing to explore these ideas in a supportive group. Any takers?

    I honestly think this is an excellent idea. I have had a homeopathic practioner help me through some seriously intense times with menieres. I embrace the homeopathic route, I truly do. :)

    Maybe an alternative or homeopathic room is needed at menieres.org?

    Toni - We suggested that to Ray sometime ago. I'm sure he's been very busy and hasn't had a chance to follow up.

    What does DBL mean?

    pardonme; I embrace most of the homeopathic practices while others may not. Similar to those who like to write in the den or have fun in the game room. I look it as an option.

    Oh sorry June! I'm so used to using the acronym that I forget many don't know what it stands for! :)

    DBL stands for Discovering Body Logic. This is a simple concept where instead of getting caught up feeling stuck with 'unresolvable' symptoms (eg. tinnitus, vertigo, hearing loss and ear pressure) we instead turn our focus to health clues ... which are the things going wrong in our body that we can observe and respond to. I have found that correcting these has the potential to resolve symptoms.

    So we literally start 'fixing the fixable' (based on key ideas from all Disciplines of knowledge)... and wait to see where this takes us. It's good for general health and is free.

    Great question!

    Thanks! Makes sense to me. Want to throw out an example?

    I can't wait until your book arrives Lee !!! I have already ordered it, any idea when I should be getting it?

    I stopped by an office yesterday that specialized in Chinese medicine but they were out to lunch. I need to follow thru with that and a new chiropractor that is a little low key and not having 20 people racked and stacked with loud music banging in the background and people literally running down the hallways.

    I am ready for an alternative way. Western medicine doctors have had me for the past 2 years and ... nothing has happened or improved, now is time to move on to more alternative challenges.

    Let it all begin soon !!!

    Sparrow :D

    Now I am confused...is it positive thinking, along the lines of "The Secret"? Help me, here. :)

    Woohoo, here's an opportunity for me to put up my first book quote ... and I know for a fact that I won't breach copyright! ;D Keep in mind this is only one tiny component.

    We unlock so much potential by learning the logic behind health clues. For example, consider a 'set jaw'. We usually tighten our jaw when we are determined, grim or tense. But most people expect this to relax when the situation eases, but with some this doesn't happen. A chronically 'set' jaw can set off a myriad of secondary responses such as altered breathing, teeth grinding, tension around the vocal cords, altered head positioning and problems in the jaw joint itself.

    In turn, these can flow on to cause symptoms like headaches, neck pain, hyperventilation, eustachian tube dysfunction, ear pain, tinnitus, sinus congestion and so on. We are then at risk of focusing on the symptoms rather than tracing it back to the cause. Yet if we recognsise the underlying issue (tension) as it is occurring, we can respond appropriately and so prevent trouble. Again, it's about checking our choices with our body and not just our mind - and it often only takes a split second.

    'Discovering' body logic is therefore about identifying what is within our control and responding to it.
    By the way, for those who already have 'idiopathic' jaw problems, once you understand the underlying logic (and are equipped with a few key skills) it can be surprisingly easy to correct.

    Diane is so right. This is not an alternative field. It draws from all disciplines ... but hands the knowledge back (in very clear terms) to the individual. Personal problem solving. Instead of paying someone to do some therapy every now and then, we do it whenever we want. Our health is then in very good, reliable, motivated hands.

    Hope that helps a little.

    tantalizing since my jaw is sometimes mysteriously clenched! Do you sometimes work backwards unclenching the jaw without ever knowing what (if anything in particular) started the muscle tension, just fix it and move on?

    You will see that it all fits together beautifully June. They key is to work out how to identify tension, how to prevent it and how to reduce/remove it.

    The book actually 'builds' one concept on top of another, with the specific skills towards the end. So I'm sorry if at this point, these concepts sound a little disjointed ... but it's inevitable in short post form. As a few get their books, it will be much easier (a few of the Aussies already have theirs, but naturally as I'm based in Australia, they will take far longer to reach Canada/US/UK etc.).

    Here's some more food for thought:

    Being wonderfully adaptive, our body responds to problems the moment they occur. But what this hugely underestimated truth means is that as far as our body is concerned, there are no 'unknown causes'. We tend to forget that our body always knows what is wrong - and how to instinctively respond.

    Once I realised this, I put all my focus into learning the 'logic' behind health clues. Then I understood WHY my body was forced to put these there in the first place, and what I could do to help it out ... as can everyone.

    Muscle therapy? Is that another word for Yoga?
