Vertigo treatment – An individual matter

There are many different types of vertigo treatment. True-and-tested methods of any vertigo therapy are exercises, changing life style and medication. In general, it is important to discuss your symptoms with a doctor. He or she will determine an individual and specific treatment plan and might ask you to keep a vertigo diary. In cases where the symptoms are the result of an underlying disease, such as blood circulatory problems, the doctor treats the organic causes first. With chronic vertigo and some types of stress vertigo, special physiotherapeutic exercises can help to boost the entire balance system.

In the context of vertigo treatment with medication, the natural pharmaceutical product Vertigoheel® has a crucial advantage over other medications such as betahistine (1) or dimenhydrinate (3), since no side effects or interactions are known. Taking Vertigoheel over a longer period of time does not pose any problems because it has no sedative effect. Clinical studies have proven the equivalence of Vertigoheel with other medicinal substances. Even when compared with Ginkgo-biloba-extract (2), which is used for improving the oxygen supply of the balance system – Vertigoheel has proved just as effective in studies

This is important for the vertigo treatment. Ask your doctor about a vertigo diary or download a template here.

Lifestyle

Lifestyle

Your balance system and brain need oxygen and nutrients to work properly. Outdoor activities are among the most important self-help steps with vertigo. Healthy food is a crucial contribution as well. Caffeine and its stimulating effect on the central-nervous system might also have a positive impact on vertigo – so there is no objection to drinking coffee, but in moderation.
