A number of causes can be attributed to it, viz, dehydration, anemia, diabetes, and abnormalities of brain. The problem is completely curable and there is something you can do at home in order to bring the problem under control.

They are helpful in regaining a stabilized gaze and adequate control over body postures. The vertigo patients are made to sit and lie down repetitively. The therapy is beneficial in training brain to differentiate between the situations of balance and imbalance.

Another vitamin that controls nerve cells is B6; it regulates transmission of signal to brain by producing neurotransmitters. Vitamin C helps by minimizing the production of free radicals; being an excellent antioxidant, this vitamin ensures regulated supply of blood to brain. Take it on regular basis and feel the change.
