Key Note; ‘A delicate balance; providing progressive thought to MdDS treatment’
New Zealand Balance, Dizziness and Vertigo Society Meeting
2nd – 3rd Dec 2017; Auckland
ABSTRACT; MdDS occurs more frequently in women than men, however those who suffer from this rare neurological illness now have a chance for full recovery or substantial improvement thanks to treatment developed by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai Hospital, New York.
Many of us remain lifelong learners, constantly growing, evolving, open to new ideas, and always willing to learn from others; being a critical thinker as well, they are generally open to changing or resetting their minds if someone presents an idea that is a better fit. It is with this mindset, Professor Dr Margie Sharpe came to the conclusion the work of Dr Dai was what she needed to see for herself, to treat her growing number of patients, and in particular her female patients, as although rare, this sense of prolonged dizziness or imbalance can be debilitating.
The Dizziness & Balance Disorders Centre now offers the same treatment paradigm as Dr Dai and his team. Professor Dr Margie Sharpe spent time with Dr Dai treating MdDS patients in 2016 at Mount Sinai Hospital. Dr Dai and colleagues reported cure or substantial improvement of 70% of 24 individuals treated in the first study (2014), and more recently about 60% improvement in 141 (a much larger number of) patients.
Additionally, Dr Timothy Hains, a highly respected USA physician treating and researching MdDS, has also replicated Dr Dai’s work.
