How to stop vertigo attacks before they begin. written by -Jonathan Brewer

It’s one thing to have to deal with vertigo when you have it, but if you can stop vertigo before it’s even begun. That’s the key. 

There as many different triggers of vertigo like this. Lets face it, the best way to deal with vertigo is to not have it in the first place. 

This is why I have compiled a list of the triggers and instigators of vertigo in the hope that it might help identify what might be effecting you.

Some of these may have an acute, more obvious effect. Others might be less noticeable.

When you have attacks of dizziness and vertigo it is important to know what the triggers are and how to stop them before they start. 

Try and remember to take slow, deliberate movements when navigating your environment.

Whether it is food, drink or environmental. The onset of vertigo can be instigated by many things.

  • Avoid Alcohol
  • Avoid Caffeine, try decaffeinated instead
  • Cut down on added sugar
  • Avoid soda
  • Avoid dairy, try non-dairy products instead
  • Cut down on salt
  • Avoid food that is too hot or spicy
  • Avoid getting too hot
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Don’t look at computer, tablet or cell phone screens for long
  • Take a 5-10 minutes break every 50-60 minutes at least
  • Night light glasses may help
  • Wear sunglasses indoors where fluorescent lighting is
  • Avoid moving quickly, taking slow deliberate movements
  • Cut down on stress and anxiety by using techniques like meditation
