The Fourth International Symposium on Menière’s Disease was held in Paris in April 1999, in the Montparnasse area close to Prosper Menière’s tomb. This meeting followed the three earlier symposia on Menière’s disease, which have been organized every six years since 1981 in Düsseldorf, Boston and, most recently, in Rome. 1999 saw the bicentenary of Menière’s birth, and to commemorate this, François Legent organized a historical symposium on the different aspects of Prosper Menière’s life. Together with Michel Portmann, the two honorary presidents, Robert Kimura and Jean-Marc Sterkers, gave excellent lectures on the two main topics of Menière’s disease: on experimental endolymphatic hydrops, and the role of both vestibular neurectomy and sac surgery. Numerous papers were presented on research and clinical experiences, and were particularly devoted to the better understanding of both the development of experimental endolymphatic hydrops and the evolution of Menière’s disease. Attention was also drawn to the local treatment of Menière’s disease by the application of drugs to the round window, and furthermore, the indications for and results of surgery for incapacitating vertigo were well defined. Finally, we are pleased to say that this was a very successful meeting and we would like to express our thanks to all the companies, and in particular Solvay Pharmaceuticals, that supported this event. We are certain that the first international symposium of the new millennium on Menière’s disease, which is to be organized by David Lim in the USA, will be even more successful and fruitful than this one.

Dizziness and vertigo are symptoms related to peripheral vestibular disorders. These are among the most common complaints in medical offices, and knowledge of the major diseases affecting this system is of fundamental importance to the specialist in otolaryngology. In recent years, great advances have been made in otoneurology, which, coupled with increasing knowledge in the field of neurosciences, have substantially modified the approach of the patient with balance complaints. This book studies the most polemic of these vestibular diseases, Ménière’s disease.

Around 45,500 people in the United States are diagnosed with Ménière’s disease each year. 12 out of 1000 people are affected by the condition. If you think you are one of them, keep reading to find out how to treat Ménière’s with your nutrition. While it is a chronic disease, it is possible to treat it through a proper diet. However, it is crucial to get diagnosed by a doctor. A diagnosis can depend on several variables, such as two or more episodes of vertigo and a hearing test to determine the extent of loss of hearing. Based on scientific studies, 6 out of 10 people can control their disease by changing their diet. Controlling the fluid in the inner ear with your diet can help control the symptoms. It involves eating regularly to manage the fluids in your body. As well as avoiding certain things like alcohol, chocolate, and caffeine that can worsen your headaches. However, the most important part is keeping to a low sodium diet as sodium causes fluid retention and can aggravate your symptoms. Your diet should have two main goals; to stabilize your fluid levels and to avoid migraine trigger foods. This involves staying regular with your water intake throughout the day and avoiding foods and beverages with high salt and sugar content. With the proper dietary strategies, you can control fluctuations, headaches, and dizziness. This may seem a lot to take in, which is why this guide is the perfect tool to teach you how to manage life with the disease and take it one step at a time.
