If this is the case, my family is pretty worthless! Jokes! Only jokes!
A few years ago my hubby found out he has Ménière’s Disease. If you don’t know about it, look it up. He has episodes of vertigo, balance issues, and constant ringing in his ears as well as hyperacusis. And to rub a little salt in the wound (pun absolutely intended) he happens to be a musician.
The one tried and true way to keep this asshole of a condition quiet is to watch the sodium intake and eat as clean as possible. STAY AWAY FROM FAKE FOODS!!! I can’t stress that enough. Preservatives are the devil and Ménière’s disease makes them extra vicious to your system.
When we started this journey we couldn’t find many resources. Now there is great info on the Internet and so many helpful blogs. I’m starting this one to document the foods I find and come across. There is a lot out there if you are willing to look for it.
Here we have two of our favorites. I hope you’re lucky enough to have a Trader Joe’s in your town. They have been a necessity during this whole thing and they stock some convenience foods that make life so much easier. Chips and salsa are a go to snack in this house! And look at these!! ZERO in the chips and 20 grams in the salsa (for 2 tablespoons). That’s a treat!! #lowsodium #lowsalt #menieresdisease #saltfree #sodiumfree #cleaneating
