Diana: For Meniere's disease and vertigo, a great substitute for valium and long term recovery is niacinamide, or vitamin B3. Biochemically both B3 and valium are quite similar, while one is safe and the latter is not.

When taking it, I tend to prefor on the low side and take this along with other vitamin B complex. Your body may need more than usual from other people, so try 300 mg. of all the vitamin B complex except for B12, where you will get an oral dose of only 100 mcg. However, B12, is poorly absorbed so an injection of this along with some L-Glutathione (if you can find one from the doctor) should relieved of this condition within an hour or so of vertigo if the body is due to B12 deficiency or toxin buildup that destroyed the nerves. Vitamin C at 1000 - 2000 mg. per day are really helpful, but taken on a fairly short term basis not exceeding a month. Some relief should be seen by day three. The problem about B complex is its effect is best when taken along with magnesium citrate or magnesium chloride. They are inseparable. It should be noted that vitamin B3 in some ways function similar to nootropic drugs (brain development and neural growth) so it is important to take them, along with vitamin B complex or buy them separately and taken along with the B complex. Never use niacin, they cause itchiness and flushing in your case, a niacinamide is the prefer supplement.

While there is a lot of mysteries surrounding the amino acid L-Carnosine, it is very much related to neural development for some reason, so taking 1000 - 2000 mg. per day should help restore some amino acid imbalances. Remember your body is not perfect in producing non-essential amino acid. L- Glutamine and Creatine monohydrate is commonly linked with brain function as well. So similar dose will help especially if taken before sleep.

It has been noted that many conditions we are suffering to day is due to tin deficiency, which resulted in tinnitis (also magnesium deficiency) will help. Most tin supplements you might find, in various form, such as tin chloride, sometimes tin oxide (which is less absorbed, but the risk of overdose is almost zero).

To allow neural development and thus solve the vertigo issue, taking some MSM or sometimes DMSO (but only much lower dose mixed in water) should help also. The effect of some improvement should be seen within about one hour. The pale colors on your face should be restored to healthy pink in about an hour. The usual dose for MSM is 500 mg - 1000 mg, or for DMSO maybe 1/2 teaspoon in 1/2 glass of water. A low conservative dose here and if no effect just adding more dose might be useful to find an optimal dose for you. DMSO may cause garlic smell, but some people this is hardly a problem, since these supplements are only taken when you are sick. S

odium thiosulfate can easily replace xanax. Taking a 10% solution of sodium thiosulfate added to your drinking water between 6 -12 drops should neutralized whatever toxins in your body and help the body sleep. Of course you can get the same effect on one small pinch of borax, (which seems to help pineal gland function) by removal of fluoride buildup, thus increasing the body's melatonin production, which helps sleep. Whatever the reason I used two of these as a sleeping pill in a more natural form. Sodium thiosulfate is found in mineral hot springs. Many mineral waters even in Israel are high in borax of similar amounts you are adding in your drinking water anyway.
