Hi! I'm Julia 👋
I was officially diagnosed with Meniere's disease at 20 but started having symptoms of intense vertigo with ear ringing at 18, a week before my prom. In my mid-20s I suffered from awful drop attacks and permanently lost 40% of my hearing in the affected ear.💫
To say that the disease has taken a lot from me is an understatement. I had to give up driving, drop out of a master's program and miss out on sooo many other opportunities and events. 😪
After being continually disappointed with what traditional medicine had to offer to treat Meniere's I investigated how dietary and lifestyle changes can improve my condition.
I did vestibular therapy, journaled to figure out my triggers (dietary and other), addressed stress, adjusted my nutrition and lifestyle and finally started feeling MUCH better.💃
I'm 31 now, a mom of 4-year-old twin girls and a nutritionist. I'm hoping to connect with other Meniere's disease sufferers and share with you helpful tips that I've picked up along the way, specifically on dietary approaches to minimize Meniere's symptoms.
Please introduce yourself❤️
