Vertigo / Motion Sickness (Dizziness) Info

“Vertigo is the conflict between the fear of falling and the desire to fall.”

Salman Rushdie

 

Vertigo is a sensation of spinning when one is stationary. It comes from the Latin root word verto "a whirling or spinning movement". Vertigo is like dizziness in which a person experiences the perception of motion (usually a spinning motion) due to dysfunction of the vestibular system that controls balance.

Dizziness and light-headedness are often accompanied by involuntary eye movements or flutters (called 'nystagmus'.) During a single episode of vertigo, this action will occur repeatedly. Closing ones eyes and sitting still can help make the symptoms fade.

Low blood pressure is a common cause of vertigo – can be transient hypotension or part of a more serious condition.  It can also be associated with epileptic seizures.

Vertigo often associated with nausea and vomiting as well as a balance disorder, causing difficulties standing or walking. Sometime the root cause can be a middle ear infection or Ménière's disease, so a healthcare practitioner should be consulted.

Vertigo is indicated by symptoms that last for longer than one day and are caused by age-related degenerative changes that affect balance. Nerve conduction slows with age and a decreased vibratory sensation is common. Unfortunately, getting older results in the degeneration of the organs that control balance (the ampulla and otolith organs) - so vertigo is a natural phenomenon, whose likelihood increases with age.

Persistent onset is often paired with central vertigo signs and systems. There are natural therapies available that may benefit vertigo. Positive effects have been found in studies investigating vitamin B6 on drug-induced vertigo and nausea, results suggested that vitamin B6 appears to offer protection against this form of vertigo. Ginger, gingko biloba and Co-enzyme Q10 have all been shown to confer benefits in reducing the severity of symptoms in vertigo. The calming effect of these supplements on the gastrointestinal system appear to be the reasoning behind the benefit.

  • helped with fullness in my ears

    star

    I brought Tebonin from a pharmacy to see if it helped with my ear problem. Which I was getting popping and a blocked feeling in my ears.
    It seemed to work and I took 2 a day for a week. Whether it was a coincidence I don't know but they did clear. I still get a low ringing noise but that doesn't bother me much compared to the blocked up feeling. I have since purchased another box for my daughter who is having memory problems and brain fog after getting over severe depression. Hoping this will also help her with brain function and getting better circulation in her feet to. Will post another review on how that goes. :)

  • So far, so good.....

    star

    I have been taking it for month only so far, so this is preliminary. I need this fo my Normal Pressure Glaukoma, to inhance the blood circulation of my optical nerves, and it is way to early to form an opinion.
    But I noticed that a regular returning tinnitus, whichused to come about opnce a week for a while does no longer appear since I started taking Tebonin. I know that for some people's Tinnitus this has not helped, for me it did.
    In a few months after the next eye check up I will write again and tell if this makes any difference.....

    That is the reason why there is no real rating

  • I use this product daily for vertigo

    star

    If you have suffered from Vertigo you will know the misery this condition brings. I started taking Tebonin nearly 10 gears ago when I had my first debilitating attack. Recommended this product by a chemist I was willing to give anything a go! I have had a couple of rests from taking it but invariably when I do the vertigo will return. This a great product.
