A Funnel Homoeopathic Approach to Menieres Syndrome
Mirza Anwar Baig.

A typical Menieres syndrome is a triad of deafness, vertigo with nausea and tinnitus.

Extensive research in modern medicine has to date not produced any effective treatment for it.

Tinnitus means ringing in the ear. In Kents Repertory more than two hundred remedies are listed under this rubric alone and for impaired hearing about hundred and fifty. If you add vertigo and nausea to these, the prominent group of remedies are-Phosphorus, Silicea, Petroleum, Pulsatilla, Cocculus, China-sulph. These can be further differentiated by their general modalities of Hot or Chilly patient.

The prominent miasm in Menieres disease is syphilitic as it is destructive lesion which can cause necrosis of the bones of the ear as also excessive accumulation of endolymph in the semicircular canals. So one more rubric can be added- Necrosis bones, KR 1375. In this way the group is narrowed down to Phosphorus and Silicea- almost exact similimum for a case of Menieres disease.

Other cases of Tinnitus

  1. Certain drugs like quinine or salicylates can also cause tinnitus.
  2. Patients of the psychoneurotic disturbances do complain of the feeling of dizziness or unsteadiness but this cannot be considered as a true Menieres disease.
  3. When tinnitus is due to Malaria or Anti-Malarial drugs then the remedies like Chin-sulph or Nat-mur can be considered.

EDITORS NOTE-This approach is probably too restrictive to give dividends. The author probably wants to say that this is one approach to a disease.

Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavour.
