The Mind Over Meniere’s Book:
I can remember the exact instant when everything changed.
It’s seared into my brain like a photograph.
My doctor was supposed to help me. He was going to explain the vertigo and make it stop. You get sick and the doctor helps you get better. How could I have known?
My doctor spoke the words and in the blink of an eye, a terrible potential was made real. The problem wasn’t going away. The problem was suddenly very real and very permanent.
Meniere’s disease is a complicated, rare, and incurable inner ear disorder that can completely destroy your quality of life with violent attacks of vertigo, hearing loss, a feeling of fullness in the ears, and tinnitus.
It demands so much of you.
The life I dreamed of vanished before my eyes. I missed so many opportunities as my symptoms worsened by the day. I had no hope of a future worth living. It was one of the darkest times of my entire life.

“All I can say is WOW! (And I get goosebumps when I say it…) This book is amazing and so inspiring. It has given me so much hope in coping with this disease. I am not a reader never have been…cannot concentrate for much longer than a paragraph before I have to start again…but your book kept me riveted to each and every word. I am going to follow a lot of what you have suggested in your book, in fact I am going to read it again…twice or maybe three times. Just in case I missed any pearls of wisdom.”

“Glenn Schweitzer has written a fabulous book detailing his personal journey from the time he was hit with the shock of Meniere’s disease (MD), and how he found the courage to dig deep within to discover a path to health and vitality. It is a truly remarkable journey he shares with the reader and he underscores the huge impact MD can have on the sufferer’s quality of life. Most importantly it’s a journey of hope and one of discovery. Glenn writes from his heart with passion and authenticity and truly wants more than anything to help others who are similarly afflicted. He clearly and concisely explains the options for managing the condition and makes many useful recommendations for the reader to consider. Glenn’s approach and advice is holistic and realistic, and some of his advice is invaluable and spans well beyond MD with broader applicability to chronic debilitating disease in general.
As a physician reading this excellent book, I was reminded that we all take our health so for granted. We assume it will always be there. Glenn’s book reminds us that sometimes its not, but always there is hope, and always there is lots we can do to fight back and reclaim our lives for the better.
I highly recommend this book to patients with MD, their families and friends, to physicians, and to anyone suffering with a chronic debilitating condition. I predict that you will benefit from his insights and shift your perspective towards a more positive healthy outlook.”

“Reading your book was the beginning of my road to wellness! When I began my journey, it was after my kidneys had shut down from all the medications my doctors and specialists prescribed for me. I had bilateral hearing loss, roaring tinnitus so loud I thought I would go crazy, brain fog so bad I thought I had early onset Alzheimer’s disease, and debilitating vertigo attacks 10-12 times per month. I was severely depressed, terrified of what my future held, and fearful that I was going to have to quit my job. I have been symptom free now for almost 4 months! Thank you for being determined to find and blaze the trail to wellness and sharing what you learned! I am so thankful everyday that I listened to and followed your suggestions! Again, thank you!”
