Doctor Shares Simple And Effect Method To Treat Dizziness In Seconds

Vertigo is condition that an estimated 69 million Americans have to deal with on a regular basis. The unbearable nausea, crippling headaches and unwanted jerking motions are only a small portion of what those with vertigo go through all the time.
There are physical therapy treatments available, but can be very expensive. Though they help some, not everyone can afford to give them a try. Now there's an at-home treatment routine that's sweeping the nation....
The special vertigo treatment has gone viral since its release in 2013 by a brilliant doctor from the University of Colorado Denver - a woman named Dr. Carol Foster who's changed countless lives.
Dr. Foster's video has been viewed online millions of times and covered by dozens of news organizations, like CBS Denver!
To try Dr. Foster's wildly popular (and effective) somersault treatment, you need to begin on your knees. Tip your head straight up towards the ceiling and keep it in that position for 5-10 seconds. If you feel a bit of a spinning sensation during this initial step, don't worry, that means the process is working!
Next lean forward and put your head completely upside down - resting the top of your skull and the palms of your hands on the floor! Be sure to tuck your chin a bit so your head is actually more inversed.
If your right ear is the one causing your vertigo, turn your head towards the right elbow. If your left ear is the one inflicting discomfort, turn your head towards your left elbow. But if you're unsure what ear is the one causing the vertigo symptoms, know it's the one that feels most dizzy when lying down on your side in bed!
While in the kneeling position (with your head tilted) you can either count to 30 or wait for the spinning sensation to stop completely. This will help the particles move out of the wrong tube and back where they should be!
After the spinning stops, quickly raise your head while keeping it turned to the affected side. Don't raise it all the way up - be sure to keep it just to back-level! Once again, wait for the spinning to subside and then bring your head all the way upright quickly.
Don't worry if this doesn't end your vertigo the first time! Dr. Foster warns it may take four or five repetitions to stop it completely. Although that may seem like a lot to do, it's absolutely worth it to stop the nausea, headaches and other debilitating symptoms!
