Hello bride2be1,
I suffered from vertigo about a year ago. I was at work and picked up my bag, got up and started felling dizzy. It was so bad that i couldn't work and had to sit down. Went to the doctors and they were not helpful. The doctor prescribed my some antibiotics but i became sick after taking them. Try this book , they have these exercise which i followed every day for a week and i getting better. Also try not to do any sudden impact sports which could make it worse. Get better soon :)

Hello bride2be1,<br />
I'm sorry to hear of your situation, especially so close to a day you want to feel your best, and that in itself can be difficult for those who dont experience vertigo.<br />
Without going into a detailed explaination of why I have made the lifestyle changes I have in order to overcome the vertigo I had experienced since 2004, I will just go into what has worked for me over the years so that I am 99% free of vertigo now. I dont claim to be an expert but this is what has worked for me. Please make your own decisions about whether this feels right for you.<br />
(1). Diet - eliminate all artificial foods including packaged foods, preservatives, colourings, flavourings, sugar, bread, pastries, fast foods and even limit natural sugars like fruit and eat plenty of fresh salads and vegetables.<br />
(2). Meditate or do relaxation - stress is the no. 1 cause of most illnesses today<br />
(3). Gentle Stretching is very good to eliminate physical stress<br />
(4) This one is only recent and has made a significant improvement in my vision (which deteriorated since getting the vertigo) and has helped enormously with balance and perception. <br />
Eye exercises - a program that I bought off the internet which you can trial for free to see if it works for you. Their website is -<br />
<br />
There is so much more I could tell you, but I dont want you to feel overwhelmed.<br />
For me it has been a radical lifestyle change.<br />
If you would like any more info, please let me know. I would be happy to pass on any knowledge I have. <br />
I am wishing you all the best and hope that you are feeling free and happy very soon.
