A. The Do’s and Do not’s list
1. Unhealthy diet
Unhealthy diet with high in saturated and trans fat and less fruits and vegetables can increase the risk of cholesterol building up in the arteries and nutrients deficiency of that can lead to insufficient blood flow to the back of the brain.
2. Avoid damage to the head
From a neurotologic perspective, approximately 21.9% of head injured workers were determined to have recognizable evidence of cochleovestibular dysfunction. Olfactory dysfunction as a physical finding post-head injury compares favourably with the presence of post-traumatic benign positional paroxysmal vertigo (BPPV) and its atypical variants in 11.2% of head injured workers(17)
In the study of VERTIGO AND PSYCHOLOGICAL DISTURBANCES Timothy C. Hain, MD, showed that Psychological abnormalities are common in the general population, even more common in those who are ill, and are certainly also common in individuals with vertigo. In a recent study by Garcia et al in Portugal, out of 43 patients, a large number of psychological abnormalities were diagnosed by the SCL-90 (a standard psychological test) including
a. Somatization 41.9%
b. Hostility 20.9%
c. Interpersonal sensitivity 18.6%
d. Anxiety 23.3%
e. Phobic anxiety 20.9%
f. OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) 53.5%
g. Depression 30.2%
h. Paranoid traits 11.6%
i. Psychotic traits 2.3%(18)
4. Fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables contain high amount of antioxidants and overprotective nutrients of which can enhance the immune system in fighting against firming of free radicals causes of degenerative diseases and viral and bacteria causes of infection and inflammation and decrease the chronic diseases causes of vertigo.
5. Moderate exercise
Excessive exercise can decrease the immune function in fighting against disease, moderate exercise not only enhances the blood circulation to increase oxygen to the back of the brain but also promotes the immune function fighting against inflammation and weaken immune system causes of vertigo.
Smoking can reduce the lung function in oxygen absorption, thus reducing the risk of oxygen deficiency causes of vertigo.
7. Excessive alcohol drinking
