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.

I also stopped drinking diet cokes. I used to drink a large diet coke from every night with a hamburger. Aspartame (see artificial sweeteners section on this site) has been observed by many to cause vertigo.

Vertigo can be related to spinal injuries/trauma, inner ear infection/disorder, cranial issues, etc. One great way to treat vertigo is by making a ginger root tea. Ginger helps with both nausea and dizziness. I currently am dealing w/ an inner ear disorder and experience the type of vertigo/dizziness that makes me feel like I'm moving and not the room around me. To make the tea:
- Cut about an 1 inch of raw ginger root
- Slightly smash the root w/ a hard container (like a glass bottle), this helps to leech out the active ingredients
- Place 1 cup of water into a small pot (add ginger root to water)
- Bring to boil - after water boils, let simmer on low heat for about 5-8 mins.
- After the 5-8 mins, let it sit for 2-5 mins and then strain and drink.
- Add honey or agave for taste.
Hope this helps....and be strong becuz I know exactly how the vertigo can make u feel.

Every winter I would get Vertigo and over several days or weeks it would slowly get better and then go away.
I moved to Las Vegas in 1991. I was fine for a couple of years. But, then one winter, it hit me hard. It was so bad I couldn't lay down to sleep. I had to sit up and set my body up against the corner of the room. I slept horribly for days. This happened each winter for a few more years.
One night in 1996 when the vertigo was so bad that I couldn't even sleep sitting up, I was thinking about my experiences with vertigo and realized that when I got vertigo, my stomach also seemed upset. I remembered that Ginger Root was used by travelers to settle their stomachs after getting stomach upset from the local food or drink. I wondered if stomach upset might be causing the Vertigo. (Please remember that my condition always took several days or weeks to get better.) I got up and went to the kitchen and took 6 capsules of health food store Ginger Root. Within 30 minutes my stomach seemed to feel more settled. I decided to try going back to bed.
Normally when I have the Vertigo, if I'm laying down and turn my head right or left, the room starts spinning. This time...NO Vertigo! I turned my head left to right and even did is faster than normal, but no Vertigo. I slept well the whole night
and woke up with no Vertigo.
I started taking 6 capsules of Ginger Root every night after that. After a few weeks I reduced the dosage to 3 capsules before bed. This is now 2009 and I still take 3 capsules Ginger Root every night and haven't had Vertigo since 1996.
