Vertigo exercises

Our brain structures have the ability to counteract dizziness. To do so, our brain has to learn to consider only correct information and ignore erroneous one. This learning process can be specifically helped along through certain dizziness exercises, also called balance exercises. By doing them on a regular basis, the brain learns how to handle vertigo.

Support your treatment with a dizziness diary

A dizziness diary can help your doctor to better learn about the type and course of your symptoms. Based on your details on the types of vertigo, its duration and the circumstances of the attacks, he or she can narrow down the causes of the attacks easier.

Help your balance system with a healthy 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: In individual cases such as Menière’s disease, a diet low in sodium can be helpful in lowering your blood pressure and thus alleviate symptoms. Caffeine and its stimulating effect on the central-nervous system might also have a positive impact on dizziness – so there is no objection to drinking coffee, but in moderation.
