The only treatment for my vertigo that actually helped was the Foster half somersault maneuver. Google it.....brought such a relief when prescription medicine and chiropractic treatment did not.

Vertigo:

No one here is talking about BPPV. benign proximal positional Vertigo. As we age, the gelatinous layer in our inner ear which holds the crystals gets weak. Sometimes they come loose into the canals causing Vertigo. I had this and physical therapy fixed it.


Lugol's Iodine

Hello! With regards to tinnitus- are you putting it in your ear or massaging it around the outside? Thank you!

I put a few drops of 5 percent lugol's in a bottle of water for two days in a row and my vertigo that I had for months was gone. I had painted it on my body for weeks and it did not have the same effect.

I had read in a study that it might work for tinnitus and am going to dilute some in heated distilled water and try it.

Rule Out Ehs First

I had that happen to me many years ago after using a carpet cleaner. Vomiting, diarrhea, and severe dizziness. Lasted about an hour or so. Scary.

I have tried this twice in 3 days and it does not change anything. How many times do you have to have it done before it will work?

Vertigo:

my eldest son (44yrs) recently had vertigo. A chiropractor finally fixed him. There is a 'bone' that sits under base of skull, and on top of first vertebra - its called 'the Atlas'. Worth researching this Atlas joint. Crooked unbalanced Atlas and many things go wrong. My son was falling down all over the place! The dizzy spells were causing him confusion and he didn't know what was going on. Falling backwards, laying on the floor and trying to get up - and all of that! 3 visits and he had his life back.

Vertigo:

The dietary change that worked for me was eliminating dairy. If I start eating dairy again I get clogged ears and then popping. If I don't stop eating it I eventually end up with room spinning vertigo. But when stopped again the vertigo goes away


Ginger

My husband has had vertigo for a few years. He had a series a few weeks ago, and I suggested Ginger tea. Which helped tremendously.

The test was, that he had started to dilute the tea with more water. Bam! he had a vertigo attack!

Back on full strength ginger tea, he drinks it as iced tea. He drinks this instead of his usual coffee.

Hope this helps others.

"It is a simple head movement that a professional needs to do to you so that it is done properly. If it's not done properly, it won't help. Good luck."

It's a simple head movement yet a professional needs to do it? No. A professional should identify that it is BPPV, which is most likely when having vertigo symptoms. Then determine which head movement you need if it is BPPV, There are three types of head movements, the most common of the three being Epley Movement.

Identifying ear and the Epley Movement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTnV3m4bWDg

Afterward do not look down for 24 hours. It's hard to remember so use a neck brace or wrap a rolled up towel around your neck using a pin asa clsp to keep it there. It will help remind you not to look down. Repeat Epley Maneuver every day or every other day.

f you want to diagnose and treat at home have friend or family help:

Thyme

Thyme also helps with the symptoms of Meniere's Disease and Vertigo. Making a tea out of fresh Thyme twigs or dried thyme. Just boil hot water and add a teaspoon of honey pour over the thyme and drink the tea. You will need 8 oz of water; that is all it takes.

I was diagnosed with Menieres last year. I drink a cup a day; the ringing in my ear has stopped, I am no longer nauseated, I have a few spots; but not as many as before. I even told my ENT about it and he is telling his patients about it.

Onion juice is the best remedy I have used for my ear problems “Menieres Disease” and I have tried many. Simple grate a red onion into a coffee filter. Squeeze the grated onion into a small bowl. Put 10 or so drops of onion juice into your ear canal and plug with a cottonball. If earache returns, repeat process.

A functional med doc told me to go see an atlas orthogonal. I thought was foolishness. Guess not.

My father in law has been struggling with severe vertigo. I read this post and told him it might be the OMEPRAZOLE (prilosec) he is taking for acid reflux. He requested his doctor chang his medication - and he recovered from Vertigo.


Dietary Changes

Twelve years ago I was diagnosed with meniere's disease.My symptoms included constant pain in both ears, dizziness, vertigo, and extremely loud tinnitus. I had difficulty sleeping, working and, just generally, functioning. It ruled my existence.

After a few months, I decided to go to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Over the course of two days, they did a battery of tests. When it came time for my diagnosis, the ENT looked at my chart, then at me, and said "all I can think is that it's a food allergy".

He was right. It turned to be an allergic reaction to legumes. Once I stopped eating them, I was back to normal again.

All by way of saying that when a doctor tells you that your condition is "idiomatic", it doesn't mean that there isn't a cause, but rather, that they don't know what the cause is.

Also try Acidophilus. Works great for acid indigestion. And not harmful like OTC acid meds.


Colloidal Silver

I recently experienced Vertigo at the start of the holidays and remembered what I read here that Colloidal Silver helped. I drove slowly (because of dizziness) to the closest Whole Foods and bought a bottle. Five drops in each ear for a couple of weeks and it's gone.

Vertigo:

My chiropractor told me to put a drop of olive oil every night in each ear and it has helped.


Avoid Citrus

That's odd. I was diagnosed with vertigo about 10 years ago and the neurologist gave me a list of food restrictions and on that was anything that was citrus.. It was said to be a vertigo trigger. 😳


Eliminate Artificial Sweeteners

J: Thanks for the post about your aspartame experience.

If I might add, one of the negative aspects of Diabetes is excess sugar in the body which ferments and becomes a fungal infection which further ferments into aldahyde. aspertame contains wood alcohol which goes thru the fermentation process into aldahyde just like regular glucose. So, in your case, you experienced major aspartame toxicity shortly after it's consumption, in comparison many people drink large quantities of Asp but no bad symptoms whatsoever.

Suggestion are to help correct sugar metabolism and alcohol or aldahyde detox so you don't get sick again.

A good whole-food multivitamin plus extra Chromium Picolinate helps convert sugar/glucose into energy.

A complex of Zinc/Copper plus any combination of Niacin forms will improve alcohol detox.

Molybdenum plus Niacin again will help detox aldehyde.

I provide this info as a preventive to your condition which will only worsen in time and eventually have deadly consequences.


Eliminate Artificial Sweeteners

I am a diabetic and had recently had a flare-up of elevated sugars due to a round of hi-dose steroids. I also have Meneire's Disease and the steroids were to try to control the vertigo I experience from the disease. I started a diet in April of this year (2017) and started drinking water with Crystal Light packets mixed in it. Not long after, maybe a month, I started having vertigo spells like I had never experience before! One dropped me right to the ground, and several made me throw up immediately. They were the most horrible vertigo spells I have had to date. I went to see a nutritionist to discuss the diabetes and diet and had one of those spells while sitting with her. She did some research while I was suffering and found out that Crystal Light has aspartame in it. On further research, she found some information on just how bad aspartame is and a correlation to people that already experience vertigo. I immediately stopped drinking water with those packets and switched to a different water enhancer and almost immediately had a cessation of those horrible vertigo spells! I do still have some vertigo, guess I always will with Meneire's, but it is so much easier to take without the aspartame poisoning. I look over the labels now of everything I eat to check for it and avoid it like the plague! Plus I have informed my friends and coworkers to avoid it also. Thank the good Lord for my nutritionist - I feel like she saved my sanity.

Colloidal Silver

In reply to Wil S. (Kentwood, Louisiana ),

I am glad that colloidal silver is helping your vertigo symptoms!

I would suggest that people not to use well water or spring water to make their colloidal silver with as you have no control over what is in that water. I understand that it is used for drinking water, but when you are taking your colloidal silver into your nose, whatever is in that colloidal silver can potentially reach the brain and that definitely seems a risk worth avoiding by just using distilled water to make your colloidal silver with.

The fact that you say that your CS is lavender colored, indicates that there is more than silver in this water, but you don't know what it is and you are putting it up your nose. It may not be something harmful, but is it worth the risk when a gallon of distilled water can be had for around a buck? If you look at all of the commercially available CS products, I don't think you will find any lavender ones. Most silver products will be clear or shades of yellow or brown.
