Meniere's syndrome is not a disease because doctors are not able to visibly detect how or test why it is becoming an extremely common and "pain in the neck" issue. We have the knowledge that it is a syndrome that causes the following idiopathic symptoms that "typically comes as a series of “attacks”. A classic Ménière’s attack includes a fluctuating hearing loss, vertigo (often accompanied by nausea and vomiting), tinnitus and a feeling of fullness in your affected ear. An attack can last from a few minutes to a few hours to a few days (Bauman, website).
Vertigo can come on in waves, lasting sometimes for weeks. Usually one ear will get the sensations of spins and then sometimes leading into the other one later. It usually comes one one ear at a time this way. And as you can imagine, if you don't already have this syndrome, it can be very debilitating to one's everyday schedule. So scientists have not figured out an answer for this disastrous mystery, but luckily alternative body...
I want to share in supporting our community by inviting artists to show and sell their work in my office periodically. I will share a biography of each one as I change the installations. This part of my business allows me to show my personal passion to the arts and the talents of the people in my community to do what they love and be supported in our locale. If you are or know anyone who is an artist and would like to share their work, please contact me.
My latest artist is Andrew Braunberger. "Andrew Braunberger has been making images since he discovered his thumbs. He first began smearing soft pastels in high school and continued to love them through college at the University of North Dakota, graduating with a BA in Arts and Sciences through the Honors Program in 1992.

This article by provides the separation between our nervous system into conscious (motor activity) and unconscious/subconscious (emotions/hormonal side).

Allow your body to enrich it's self with rich oxygen, ridding stagnation of all the body systems. It will alert your thinking, it will aid your heart, it will calm the soul.
A lot of us learn only the basics of our body systems in health class during middle and high school. But do we really understand how our body systems thrive and react to our daily activities? I was looking for an easy way to describe the basics and came across this article from Indiana University. I will talk more about how massage encourages parasympathetic or sympathetic responses in another article. Enjoy! http://www.indiana.edu/~p1013447/dictionary/ans.htm
This issue truly hits home to many people around the world, and in the Twin Cities case, has caused heartbreak from our dearly loved celebrity and brilliant song writer, Prince Rogers Nelson. I have the opinion that many of pain sensations people have are masked with pharmaceuticals as a band-aid solution to something much deeper to the human psyche. At lease we can praise the small steps of the government to put the initiative to regulate the use of such deadly substances.
