The three years before I 'went paleo' I experienced a few (5) episodes of dizziness caused by inner ear inflammation. Typically: one day really bad, next day a lot better, next day gone (or almost). Couldn't find a cause.
Since going paleo, I have not experienced them again, except for last week. This time it was quite a minor episode and it took only one day to recover. And hey, two days before I ate two slices of bread (which was a long time ago). I don't want to be fooled by randomness, but I've got the feeling this was not a coincidence.
I first thought about the link between food and my problem after foundings this site. Apparently, as a child, I had quite a lot of ear infections. This research report (pdf) talks about the relation of allergy and inner ear infection. Though I never had any known allergy.
I did a little quick research
But I'm no otologist. Anyone with some other input?
I'm also interested in personal stories. Anyone with a similar experience? Both with recurrent ear infections or dizziness and the influence of a paleo diet?
PS my mom has the same symptoms, but less episodic. Hope this will change her ideas on paleo...
