"VERTIGO" and "HISTAMINE"


Okay . . . so last week we spoke about "histamine intolerance" and all the symptoms it can cause.


Well . . . this week . . . let's talk about a few more . . . with one being "VERTIGO" !


Now . . . conventional medicine tells us that there are 3 types of "vertigo" . . . and that this is a problem with our inner ear, brain or sensory nerve pathway.


And that "vertigo" is more common at the age of 65 and older . . . but we "can" see this illness any time in life.


Okay . . . so with that being said . . . this part is important . . .


"Vertigo" is a SYMPTOM . . . rather than an condition itself . . . of an underlaying illness or "deficiency".


And "vertigo" can result in . . .


Problems focusing the eyes

Dizziness

Hearing loss in one or both ears Loss of balance and may cause a fall

Ringing in the ears

Nausea and vomiting Balance problems

Tinnitus

Headaches

Motion sickness

Feeling of fullness in the ears

And Nystagmus - when the eyes move side to side uncontrollably


So why does "vertigo" happen suddenly . . . sometimes without any warning???


Well . . . this happens when small "crystals" break free and "float" inside the tubes of the inner ears . . . which is called the "semicircular canal.


So what "causes" inner ear "crystals" to "dislodge"???


Well . . . it could be from a past head injury . . . vestibular system issues . . . or even Meniere disease.


And when this does happen . . . the good news is . . . these "crystals" normally dissolve in about 20 hours.


Okay . . . so with "that" being said . . . How does conventional medicine tell us to cure or ease the pain and discomfort???


Well . . . with things like . . .


Lie still in a quiet, dark room to reduce the spinning feeling

Move your head carefully and slowly during daily activities

Sit down straight away when you feel dizzy

Turn on the lights if you get up at night

Use a walking stick if you're at risk of falling
