At the height of his business career the author became acutely ill. He was diagnosed with Meniere's disease, but the full impact of having Meniere's disease was to come later. He was to lose not only his health, but his career. He began to lose all hope that he would fully recover a sense of wellbeing. But it was his personal spirit and desire to get "back to normal" that made him not give up to a life of Meniere's symptoms of severe vertigo, dizziness and nausea.
He decided that you can't put a limit on anything in life. Rather than letting Meniere's disease take over his life, he started to focus on what to do about getting over Meniere's disease symptoms without surgery or drug dependency. Meniere Man believes that if you want to experience a marked improvement in health you can't wait until you feel well to start. You must begin to improve your health now, even though you don't feel like it. The more you do, the more you can do.
These days life is different for the Author. He made a full recovery. He does not take any medication. All the physical activities he enjoys these days require a high degree of balance and equilibrium: snowboarding, surfing, hiking, windsurfing, weight training.Following his own advice, he continues to avoid salt, stress, takes vitamins, exercises regularly and maintains a positive, mindful attitude.
With a smile and a sense of humor, the Author pens himself as Meniere Man, because, as he says, Meniere's disease is the one thing that changed his life dramatically. The Author is a writer and artist. He is married to a Poet and Essayist. They have two adult children. He enjoys the sea, cooking, travel, the great company of family, friends and his beloved dog Bella.
