Scientists have been searching aggressively for a direct cause and cure for different types of vertigos – unfortunately, they have had little results.
However, a new study published in the journal Frontiers in Neurology reveals that an innocent-looking acid may be the cause they have looking for.
We must consume this acid to survive, but your body also has to get rid of the excess or face dire consequences (one of them being vertigo.)
Chinese researchers searched the five largest scientific journal databases and collected studies that compared people with high and low uric acid levels in their blood to see which were more likely to struggle with vertigo.
To reduce your uric acid level, try some of the following remedies:
- Since your kidneys are meant to filter uric acid out of your body through the urine, do everything in your power to promote good kidney health. Drink a lot of water, manage your blood pressure and blood sugar level and avoid unnecessary over-the-counter drugs.
- Eat nuts, seeds, oats, and other foods that contain fiber, as it can help your body remove uric acid as well as balance your sugar levels.
- Reduce your intake of a substance called purines, which is found in organ meats (liver, kidneys), mutton, pork, veal, fish, mushrooms, green peas, and cauliflower.
- Reduce your alcohol intake, because your kidneys put it in the front of the queue of substances to be excreted. Beer also contains purines.
If your uric acid remains under control, you might avoid vertigo.
But managing uric acid may not be enough to eliminate all types of vertigo. For that, you will need to increase the blood that flows up to your head and synchronize the different aspects of your balance system… and you can do that using the easy vertigo techniques found here…
If you suffer from vertigo, be very careful when accepting any drugs. This is as many of them cause or worsen vertigo as a side effect.
Ironically, a new German study published in the journal Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety revealed that one of the leading drug prescribed for vertigo and dizziness actually worsens vertigo in the long run and causes vertigo for those who didn’t have it in the first place.
The point of an anticholinergic is to block parasympathetic nerve impulses in order to stop involuntary movements.
It is prescribed for many conditions, like dizziness, motion sickness, gastrointestinal disorders (nausea, vomiting, spasms, and ulcers), muscle spasms, respiratory disorders like asthma, insomnia, overactive bladder, and multiple others.
The researchers consulted the Continuous Morbidity Registration Epidemiologic Network in order to identify 6,971 Germans who were suspected to suffer from vertigo and 6,971 matches from the general population with whom to compare them.
Altogether, there were 10,552 consultation days with vertigo diagnoses and 1,072 days in which doctors prescribed either anticholinergic or sedative medication.
This enabled them to check whether the patient’s vertigo improved or worsened after the prescription days.
People on these prescriptions were 37% more likely to suffer from vertigo than people who were not prescribed with any of them.
In other words, the drugs worsened the vertigo, with people complaining of having worse symptoms after the prescriptions.
In another study, the same scientists found that people who didn’t suffer from vertigo began to develop vertigo and dizziness when they started taking these drugs.
Yet, the traditional medical system doesn’t have many solutions for vertigo. So, what should you do if you can’t take their drugs?
Fortunately, there are easy vertigo exercises that help increase blood flow to your head and synchronize your balance system. You can find these very effective vertigo and dizziness exercises here…
Cure Dizziness Naturally – Why Vertigo Treatments Are Failing (and what to do about it)
Vertigo is one of the most common, if not the most common, complaint patients report to emergency rooms and clinics.
A 2008 study in the Journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings found that 4% of emergency room and 5% of clinic visitors complain of dizziness.
Why has the medical system failed to cure this disease? How can you actually get rid of it completely and naturally?
The diagnosis of vertigo can be made easily through observing a patient’s eye movements in response to his or her head movements. And the treatment can be just as simple.
Surprisingly, however, a new study just published in the Journal of Neurology shows that medical practitioners are really bad at diagnosing and treating this common condition.
The team of scientists who conducted this study collected the medical data of 2,374 people who were referred to a tertiary care balance clinic, a clinic that specialized in balance disorders.
The collected information included all the diagnostic procedures and treatments the participants had undergone before ending up at the balance clinic.
Of the 2,374 patients, 19.7% had benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, 12% had Menière’s disease, 5.8% had vestibular paroxysmia, 7.2% had bilateral vestibulopathy, 14.1% had vestibular migraine, and 40.6% had psychogenic vertigo, all very common conditions.
For diagnosis, 76.2% had undergone magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and 53.5% had received an electrocardiography. Both of these are expensive diagnostic tests with a high likelihood of having been unnecessary.
Incredibly, for a medical problem that is so easy to diagnose and treat, 61.3% of the patients had at least two consultations before being referred to the balance clinic.
61% of patients had been given drugs to treat the problem, which is completely unnecessary, almost always ineffective at treating the symptoms of vertigo, and absolutely always unsuccessful at addressing the causes of the dizziness.
41.3% had been given a variety of physical therapies that failed.
On average, these participants had been subjected to 3.2 diagnostic tests; some of them received as many as six tests.
On average, they had received 1.8 different therapies, with some people having received as many as eight.
Again, on average, the participants had been given 1.8 drugs, with some people having received an unbelievable 17.
There is only one conclusion to draw from this, and the authors of this study duly drew it.
The professional medical sector needs some serious training in the diagnosis and treatment of vertigo, especially because it is so common and so easy to treat.
Alternatively, health care professionals need to look into the influx of pharmaceutical money promoting the wrong treatment to fuel their profits.
