Do you feel dizzy and unsteady or is it more of a lightheaded feeling? Although the symptoms may be similar, getting the medical history of this complaint is very important. The causes are different.

Often referred to as vertigo or Meniere’s disease, dizziness implies a feeling of rotation or spinning. Additional symptoms may include ringing, buzzing, or loss of hearing. Dizziness is typically considered the realm of the ENT doctor or neurologist. Personally, I think this is an area where the doctor of chiropractic shines. See your chiropractor first. 

Lightheadedness is usually from an abrupt decrease in blood pressure and loss of circulation to the brain. This loss of circulation may lead to loss of consciousness termed syncope. There are many causes of lightheadedness. A cardiologist is best equipped to assess this situation. 

What Causes Dizziness?

A variety of things can cause dizziness. These include:

  • Inner ear issues – Infections and positional vertigo are prime culprits.
  • Tumors or strokes – Occurrences are quite rare and are accompanied by other symptoms.
  • Medications – Dizziness is a side effect of many prescription and over-the-counter medications.
  • Nutritional deficiencies – Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are known causes of dizziness. Recent studies confirm low vitamin D is a risk factor for vertigo
  • Environmental toxins – Lots of us have walked into a chemically-cleaned room and felt dizzy from all the toxic fumes. These toxins produce oxidative stress, a situation linked to vertigo

  • Take nutritional supplements. In addition to our Foundation 5, here are three supplements that may help your dizziness:
