Vertigo Relief: Doctor Shares 1 Simple Tip to Treat Dizziness in Seconds

Are you in or someone you love in need of vertigo relief?

You may think that vertigo is just a feeling of dizziness that happens when someone glances down from a very high place.

But vertigo refers to a specific type of dizziness that can happen to you anywhere, even sitting if you are sitting perfectly still at sea level.

Vertigo Definition

According to WebMD, Vertigo is a sensation of feeling off balance. If you have these dizzy spells, you might feel like you are spinning or that the world around you is spinning.

Symptoms of Vertigo

Anyone who has ever experienced vertigo knows it can have a crippling effect, causing the sufferer to feel dizzy, lightheaded, nauseous, vomiting and a loss of balance.

Symptoms of Vertigo

What Causes Vertigo?

Vertigo can be triggered by a variety of problems involving the ear, the brain, or the sensory nerve pathways. And it can make the smallest movement of the head or body feel distressing.

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or BPPV can be the cause. This disorder is caused by a head injury, prior damage to your inner ear or simply occur among people who are older.

What Causes Vertigo

When a small crystal (calcified otolith) becomes dislodged and is found loosely moving around in the fluid of the semicircular ear canals this will trick your brain into thinking head movement occurred, even though no movement has happened, thus causing the symptoms of vertigo.

Natural Remedies for Vertigo Relief

Common remedies such as head exercises or short-term use of prescription medications can be effective, but medications have side-effects and head exercises have to be done regularly for ongoing relief.

Now there is an easy, at-home treatment that has proved to be successful at treating vertigo. The “half somersault maneuver” was developed by Dr. Carol Foster, and since she went public with her method on YouTube, her video has been viewed over 2.5 million times.

The Half Somersault Remedy

  • Kneel on the floor and look up at the ceiling
  • Look down and bend over as if about to do a somersault
  • Remain in that position and turn your head to look at your left elbow until the dizziness stops
  • After it stops, raise your head to back level. Be aware that this will cause the dizziness to occur and then stop again
  • After dizziness is gone, sit up straight quickly.

It’s that simple, but this technique for relief from vertigo has made a big difference to people who suffer from this debilitating problem.

Sue Rickers suffered from episodes of vertigo for years without finding any effective relief. Sometimes the problem would last for days, but nothing helped other than waiting for the episode to pass naturally.

“I couldn’t drive, I couldn’t walk, I had to hold on to the wall,” Rickers remembers. “It was very, very scary.”

Then she found Dr. Rickers’ video and decided to try it.

“It worked,” she said. “It worked the very first time!”

    • I wish that I did. My husband and I both have Tinnitus. My ENT and Primary Physician have told me there is no cure for it. I’ve had Tinnitus for five years now. It is quite frustrating. Best wishes to you. I hope one day there will be help for this.

  • To get rid of the nausea I take motion sickness medication that contains meclizine plus my doctor prescribed an anti-nausea that I take when it’s really bad. They initially take a couple of hours to start working.
    Tried this somersault method last night. Within minutes I was vomiting and now feeling worse than I had since this episode started five days ago. Not sure that I want to try it again.

  • Is there any kind of modified form of this for those of us who have severe arthritis in the knees and can’t kneel and put weight on them?

    I’ve seen 14 different doctors…had a multitude of tests, scans, and xrays. I’ve tried almost everything….medication, diet, vestibular therapy…..I’ve even had several doctors try to reset the crystals by turning my head side to side……and still not a moment’s relief. This has been going on for 8 years now. I’ve been living the expression “Hell on Earth.” I’d give anything for 5 minutes without vertigo.


    I was diagnosed with vertigo but it does not occur in bed so I do not know what side is affected. I experience the dizziness when I lay on my back when working on a car or something. Do I do this technique for both sides?

  • I have Meniere’s I use to get vertigo all the time.. but now have had 15 Steroid shots in my ear in my right ear which is my deaf and bad ear…and 4 Steroid shots in my left ear..
    Those shots have saved my life.. I would spin and throw up with no warning..
    Most ENT doctors can administer these shots..sometimes it takes more than one.. the steroid takes down the swelling in your ear which causes vertigo.
    These shots I don’t think will help people with Positional Vertigo.
    Nothing will help Tinnitus…sorry to say…
    Hearing aids with the noise programmed into them so you don’t hear the noise in your head as much.
    Good Luck

  • I have vertigo and menieres my ent has done all the test he knows to do and nothing helps I have to go to bed for 3 to 4 days at a time and the ringing in my ear has about drive me crazy is there any help at all for it it is all the time day and night can’t sleep for it
