It it fascinating to watch gymnasts who gracefully run, soar into the air, flip their bodies around and then land on two feet. While most of us are not trained or equipped to accomplish such feats, many of us perform our own amazing balancing acts daily just by walking on both feet.
Thanks to our balance system, healthy people can do these things.
Vertigo or dizziness results from a balance system that is not functioning properly. I will refer to these conditions as the same as the problems for both originate from the same source.
Everyone has experienced some form of dizziness or vertigo. Perhaps an ear infection left you wobbly on your feet. Or, you’ve suddenly jumped up from a sitting position very quickly and felt the need to sit right back down.
Fortunately, the feeling doesn’t tend to last long for the majority.
Chronic dizziness or vertigo affects a huge number of people. They experience this unsteady feeling daily or at least many times throughout the year.
This kind of chronic vertigo/dizziness is caused by problems with the balance system.
Below are the three balance systems we all have
ears eyes body sense
Luckily, we can still go about most of our activities even if one of the balance systems is not functioning properly.
However, if two or even three of those balance systems become ineffective, we have a big problem. That is why it is so important to strengthen all three balance systems even if one or two are too weak to completely heal them.
How can we improve our balance system?
Almost always dizziness or vertigo is due to the balance systems suffering from muscle tension surrounding key areas (head to pelvic region, ears or eyes.)
Ear impairments will cause you to view your surrounds slightly differently than the balance system in your eyes do.
These two balance systems send two different messages to the brain. This causes confusion when your brain tries to process the information. Needless to say, you feel dizzy.
Having your eyes dilated is a good example of this occurance.
A perfectly functioning balance system in the ears and body would help you continue functioning when the eyes are not up to par. However, normally, dizziness still occurs because it just is not likely that both of the other systems will be in perfect balance.
But, if you loosen and strengthen the muscles surrounding all three systems, relief can be found.
My vertio and dizziness program are designed to accomplish exactly this. Each balance system does not have to be at 100%. If each one is well above average, complete relief can be attained.
