Contrary to what many may believe, I do have an open mind and I carefully read a lot of posts with topics ranging from natural supplements, drugs, surgeries, NUCCA, etc.... As we all know, lately, a lot of talk on these forums revolves around NUCCA practicioners and the role the misalignment of the atlas may have on vestibular symptoms, meniere's, migraines, etc... I just finished reading a post made by Songbird in which she posts a letter (or e-mail) sent to her by a NUCCA practicioner in the UK. In that letter she mentions that a traumatic event like whiplash from a car accident is enough to jolt the atlas into misaligment which, in return, can cause all types of undesirable symptoms, including meniere's. You see, my point is that, on the surface, this explanation seems reasonable. But, as I think longer, I can't help but point out that there are so many people that have traumatic events repeatedly in their lives which obviously misalign their atlas yet they have no adverse symptoms ever. How can this be explained? We are all "anatomically" the same so I won't buy the argument that different people react differently to the same stimuli. What about the boxer who endures tens of thousands of blows to his head over the life of his career? As an avid boxing fan, I have never heard of boxers retiring because of headaches or dizziness. On a more personal note, I know a friend who was involved in such a horrific car accident that he had to spend a month in the hospital. After his healing, he never had any headaches, tinnitus, or dizziness even though the whiplash he endured was enormous, according to him. These are the types of questions nobody can ever answer and that is why I have a problem with people putting so much faith into something that they have been told will improve their meniere's symptoms exponetially. We are human beings. As humans we move, we run, we jump, we bounce, we lift, we sleep, we get injured, we recover, we slouch, we have good posture, we have terrible posture, we get tense, etc. What I am getting at is that there is NO POSSIBLE WAY to live in a manner that will keep our atlas aligned perfectly for all of our lives. Therefore, to the NUCCA preachers, how do you account for the hundreds of millions, if not billions of people around the world, who probably have lived more dangerous lives than these poor folks with meniere's, yet have no adverse symptoms at all? That is the million dollar question.
