"I'm so grateful to have found Vitality Specific. I was diagnosed with Endolymphatic Hydrops (aka Meniere's disease) three years ago and was told by numerous doctors that there was no known cause or cure for it and that I would have to manage symptoms with medication and diet forever. I experienced constant tinnitus, dizziness, nausea, hearing loss and pain (among many other symptoms.) Luckily, I stumbled across a webpage that discussed the findings of upper cervical chiropractor Dr. Michael Burcon. He found that Meniere's patients often have a misalignment and head tilt in their upper spine. I decided to see if I might have this misalignment. I was able to get in for my initial appointment quickly and Dr. Riebling took detailed measurements and x-rays. He was familiar with Dr. Burcon and his findings, which was very reassuring. It did turn out that I had a misalignment and Dr. Benlien used the Blair Upper Cervical Technique to gently adjust the vertebrae back into their proper position. Immediately after the adjustment I felt a tingling heat up the side of my face with the hearing loss and tinnitus. Within a few days my tinnitus had decreased significantly and almost all of the symptoms that had plagued me were completely gone. This has been life changing for me and my family. I was thirty three when I was diagnosed, I had two kids- three and five years old-and was given a grim prognosis for my future. Thanks to everyone at Vitality Specific I'm happy and healing, I finally found the underlying cause and they helped me to treat it. I'm telling everyone I know about this key to wellness. I want this information to be common knowledge and I want anyone who has hydrops or knows someone with hydrops (or any mysterious and chronic illness for that matter) to have this information so that they can heal too."
