I have suffered with vertigo on and off for about 12 years. The last time it hit me was in October 2015 and lasted till December 2015 until I read an article about magnesium deficiency. I started taking 400mg of Magnesium Oxide every day and after three days no more vertigo. I told my neighbor about it and she too tried the magnesium and now is vertigo free. I tried everything before and this is what worked for me.

Vertigo is often due to lack of magnesium/potassium/Vitamin D and/or excessive calcium. If you are also experiencing chest pains on an evening/morning akin to PRINZMETAL angina, and/or a stiff neck muscles, then it is likely that an imbalance in the calcium/magnesium ratio is behind your vertigo. Often salty foods (like sauerkraut) can trigger an attack as the ratio of sodium and potassium also interplay in this balancing act.

Stop taking any calcium supplements (or any vitamins that uses calcium as a filler) for now and start supplementing with magnesium. Put a chelated form in a water bottle and sip it throughout the day, this spreads it out more evenly and allows potentially more to be absorbed in the small intestine and utilized by the cells, bones, muscles, endocrine system and organs that depend upon it.

As calcium can also build up in the body if there is a deficiency of potassium or vitamin D, make sure you're getting enough potassium (bananas are a good source) and up your vitamin D levels by exposing your skin to sun for at least 20 mins a day.

This past weekend I was researching for my daughters illnesses. In those articles ( wished I would have saved them) it said that Vertigo has promising healing results when you put the patient on a gluten free diet and magnesium is increased in the patient. Soak in Epsom salts daily. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil daily up to 4 TBs helps with may brain disorders. They are finding that the wheats today are not like the wheat 100 years ago and many are having gluten intolerant issues...which are damaging the gut. Leaky gut can cause auto immune diseases. Auto immune diseases are rampant these days!!
