Homeopathic Remedies for Vertigo!
Vertigo, a symptom of various disorders, is the sensation of spinning. Either the person himself or his surroundings. The term is sometimes misapplied to dizziness. Peripheral vertigo is the case when there is a problem with part of the inner ear that controls balance or with the vestibule nerve.The vestibular system keeps objects in focus and integrates sense stimuli and motion. Central vertigo is when there is a problem in the brain itself;usually either the stem or the cerebellum. Because of the associated dangers of this balance disorder, someone suffering from vertigo should avoid driving and operating machinery, and should be extra careful while walking. Quite often doctors cannot detect a specific reason for the patient’s vertigo.The basis of central vertigo can be migraines, multiple sclerosis, or drug reactions. Symptoms of central vertigo can also include double vision, difficulty in swallowing, facial paralysis, slurred speech, problems with eye movements, weakness of the extremities, and sometimes nausea and vomiting.

Causes of vertigo:
Vertigo can be caused due to disorders of the vestibular system, which are structures in the inner ear; the vestibular nerve, brainstem or cerebellum. In some cases, the cause of vertigo may remain unknown. Certain medications and environmental chemicals may also damage the structures of the inner ear or the nerves and therefore result in vertigo.
