    As someone who has suffered from this horrible disease I found Meniere Man’s “Lets Get Better” extremely helpful. I appreciated the autobiographical detail that put dealing with this disease in a human context followed by the organized approach to tackle it with a well thought-out exercise regime and diet. It gave me a positive outlook when I really needed one and the tools necessary to get through it. There is a community of sufferers out there who are battling on. Thanks Mr. Meniere Man for the support and solid advice.

    This review is from: Meniere Man Let’s Get Better: A Memoir of Meniere’s Disease (Paperback)

    In his second book on the topic of Meniere’s Disease, the author, known only as Meniere Man, describes the challenges of living with serious chronic illness. His thoughtful, inspiring memoir includes not only the limitations the disease imposes but also provides a variety of step by step techniques for reestablishing health through alternative therapies, diet, exercise and a can do attitude.

    The author begins life a longed for son and brother in a world of happy neighborhood games and uncomplicated pleasures. The rapid failure of his mother’s second marriage changes his life abruptly and completely. Although the family initially loses everything, the energetic, focused efforts of his mother rescue the family and finally produce independence and financial success.

    “Work through your problems, regardless of how devastating they are and you’ll discover that anything is possible. Eve (author’s mother) taught me this and I can see now what a gift she gave me.”

    This dramatic event provides the template for the author’s own extreme challenge to his life’s achievement when he receives the devastating diagnosis of Meniere’s disease after the puzzling onset of vertigo during a family vacation.

    The illness upends his stable, prosperous life. Harnessing his considerable creativity and intelligence, the author analyzes his symptoms and systematically treats them with a wide range of therapies from simple fixes like a liver cleanse or sunglasses to acupuncture, bio-feedback, massage, homeopathy, hypnotherapy and counseling. While each approach delivers some measure of relief from the ravages of his illness, it is the author’s relentless determination to win his life back that produces an impressive return to health and usefulness.

    This is a valuable and inspiring book for anyone facing the limitations of serious illness for oneself or a close relation. All health care professionals would benefit from reading about this energetic and inventive search for therapies to augment traditional approaches to managing illness. The author speaks with the wisdom and authority that only a man who has fought for his life against fearful odds and won can claim.

    This book receives my highest recommendation.
