Vertigo is not a disease itself; it is the symptom of some other problem and can be caused by a number of things. It is advisable to get oneself checked by a healthcare professional, preferably a Naturopathic doctor. The possibilities can be very minor or very serious. Causes of vertigo can range from aging, inner ear problems/infections, ear wax build up, allergies, neurological issues, blood pressure, poor cardio-vascular circulation, oxygen deprivation, brain tumors, diabetes, anemia, general nutritional deficiencies, and even stress. As you can see, this can be a very complex issue to deal with and should not be taken lightly.
The Herpes virus is reputed to sometimes be a culprit and almost all adults carry one form of the virus or another (cold sores, genital herpes, chickenpox, shingles, measles, mononecleosis, and so forth.) The Herpes that causes cold sores resides dormant in the joint of the jaw and may cause some issues with the inner ear which could affect balance.
If the underlying cause is not life threatening, there are some supplements that may be of benefit The Prescription For Nutritional Healing lists the following as possibly being beneficial for vertigo, Colloidal Silver, Nattokinase, Vitamin B Complex, B-12, Plant Minerals, Vitamin C, Inositol, CoQ10, Zinc, Calcium & Magnesium, Melatonin, etc. http://utopiasilver.com/products/supplements/index.htm
• An old remedy for vertigo. Mix 7 to 8 almonds with 7 to 8 kernels of pumpkin seeds, one teaspoon poppyseeds and three tablespoon wheat. Soak in water overnight. Next morning, remove the outer skin of the almonds and grind everything together into a fine paste. Heat separately two teaspoon ghee and fry ½ teaspoon cloves. Add the paste to it along with some (preferably raw) goat or cow milk and boil the whole mixture. Sweeten with raw cane sugar and drink every day for a few days for vertigo relief.
