Dizziness (also known as vertigo) is a condition Dr. Terri Bonner sees quite often at Destiny Chiropractic.
Vertigo can have a number of causes, but the most common are
(1) ear infections, (2) low blood sugar, (3) a subluxation of a cervical vertebre.
For ear infections, a chiropractic adjustment will stimulate the immune system and help your body deal with the infection all by itself. After all, your body is designed to do just that. For low blood sugar, consider this: If your diet is rich in carbs and refined sugars, your body learns to compensate by producing more and more insulin to enable it to absorb sugar directly into your cells for energy. As a result, the normal levels of blood sugar remain dangerously low. Now your brain is literally starved for energy and you begin to feel dizzy.
The answer is to cut back on sugary snacks and increase your consumption of whole grains and vegetables. A third reason for vertigo is the vertebral subluxation (misaligned vertebrae) that disturbs the normal flow of nerve activity from the brain to the body, and vice versa. When vertebrae in the upper part of the neck, are subluxated (misaligned) they have the effect of literally short-circuiting areas of the spinal cord and brain stem, causing erroneous input into the cerebellum. This affects normal balance and may cause you to feel dizzy. Ask Dr Terri to check for the presence of subluxations which could be causing your vertigo.
The challenge for any health practitioner is not only to diagnose the symptoms of the patient, but to correct the cause of the symptom. Most doctors can only “medicate” or “operate.” Try one that can “manipulate” first.
Try a chiropractor. You might just find a real solution that is not as invasive or as expensive in the long term, as drugs and/or surgeries.
