Thank you!

A special thanks to Easy Street Designs for the donation of $168.02. They put up a donation jar out in their shop. They got together that amount just from loose change dropped in a jar by their customers over the last 2 months. Those pennies and nickels add up and every bit helps! Thanks again!

Fall 2014 Update

We've been quiet for a while due to scheduling and some technical issues, but a whole lot has been going on and we wanted to give you an update!

Paul Jansen is soon to begin his treatment after completing all the necessary preliminaries and testing. During this initial phase, he has already begun having more good days, and the prognosis for the effectiveness of treatment is very hopeful.  We would like to thank each and every one of you who have made this possible with your support thus far.  

The medications that Paul will be continuing to take every month for the next 12-18 months are very expensive, and we have managed to raise enough to get him started and going for a while. However, to make sure he is able to see the treatment through to the end, we are still working to raise funds to get him the rest of the way there.

You can contribute directly to Paul's treatment at the following link:
You Caring - Paul Jansen

Additionally, the dance community of Colorado has been helping with a fundraising calendar to assist with expenses. If you would like to be a part of this calendar (buying ad space, selling calendars, or simply buying one) a link will be posted shortly at www.menieresproject.org.

We thank you for your ongoing interest and support!

An Interview with Paul Jansen

Paul Jansen, a musician with Meniere's Disease, gives insight in to his illness on Denver's Westword Blog.

"There is thought to be a link between neck injuries, migraine headaches and Meniere's. Jansen suffered a major childhood neck injury at the age of two. The disease can often take decades to fully manifest, and its causes are complex and interlinking. Between food allergies and issues like excesses of various minerals and neck displacement, solutions to the problems of Meniere's have eluded conventional medical practice. The disease alters one's sense of space and orientation and motion."

Helpful Supplements

The John of Ohio (JOH) Meniere’s Regimen was developed by a biologist and uses over-the-counter supplements to help treat Meniere's symptoms. Many people have found relief of varying degrees by trying this treatment. If you are considering using supplements, please read the following information from John himself.

"Please understand that I am a biologist, not a medical professional of any kind. The information I offer here is for general consideration, not a specific recommendation for the treatment of any disease. Those who elect to undertake this Meniere’s regimen are advised to first gain the approval of their personal medical professional. Most importantly, do not substitute any portion of this regimen for anything prescribed or recommended by a physician or other medical professional. Do not stop taking any prescribed drugs or stop any recommended diet without the prior professional advice of your physician."
