On any website or blog that is about meniere’s you will find various ways to lessen the effects of this disorder. One of the most common remedies is watching your diet. We all know about salt and how it is bad for you because it retains fluid in your inner ear. Of course for some folks (including me) cutting back on salt really doesn’t help much. And you are also to cut back on alcohol especially if you taking certain medications that make you drowsy. Tobacco is another no-no. last but not least is caffeine which I have recently cut down on.
Why is caffeine bad for meniere’s folks?
According to Dr. Hain website “Caffeine has stimulant properties that may make your symptoms worse. Caffeine also may make tinnitus louder. Large amounts of caffeine may trigger migraine.” That makes sense because coffee or tea or anything with caffeine can really get you hopping.
Over the past month I have stopped drinking soda pop which contains a lot of caffeine. I just felt that it was time for a change and it probably would do me good whether it helped with the meniere’s or not. I was surprised to see how easy it was to stop drinking it because I drank way too much every day.
Do I feel better?
I have noticed a change in the way I feel but I can’t really say whether it has helped my meniere’s or not I will give it a little more time before I make that determination.
