SEASICKNESS AND VERTIGO NATURAL MEDICINES

CHRONICLE DISEASES

  1. SEASICKNESS AND VERTIGO

Vertigo: etymologically, vertigo means rotating or oscillating movement.

There are no good diseases, just good healing.

Balance is possible because of the inner ear. If the inner ear has suffered (for instance a childhood otitis, a trauma or a vascular accident), sequels may occur such as deafness, hypoacousia, tinnitus or vertigo. The cerebellum also plays a part in balance.

Balance may be perturbed by fear.

Eyes also contribute to a good balance.

To start with, let me tell you a real-life experience.

At a carnival, they were projecting a picture on a Formula 1 car race. The public was standing. Cars were showing alternatively racing from left to right or from right to left. After a few minutes, nearly all spectators had vertigo and stood with their legs wide apart to avoid falling, as if they were drunk. I witnessed all that and found it myself not to fall. I was on land and yet felt seasick. Though I found the show very interesting, I had to close my eyes. Nausea and vertigo disappeared immediately.

It made me think how much I had suffered from seasickness, to the point I had refused to accompany some friends that had kindly invited me to a cruise on a sailboat. Eureka! I now had a clue.

When on a boat at sea, set your eyes on a fixed point of the boat as you would do at home. The difference is a house doesn’t move but a boat does.

The following day, I decided to rent a boat with its skipper. In the afternoon I took a ride on the Mediterranean Sea; there was some wind and waves and I kept my eyes glued to the horizon. The result? No seasickness.

I just had to put into practice that result against vertigo.

The procedure is as follows:

EXERCISE

Look at a fixed point. And, above all, don’t look away even if you are feeling very bad.

Breathe deliberately and profoundly.

Concentrate on feeling your feet on the ground (grounding). You will feel the ground intensely, as a blind person would.

Be careful! I am watching you! Don’t look away from the fixed point; on no account. Now you may start walking. If necessary, you may hold on to something.

It’s like the first steps of a baby . . . or the first walk on the moon,

deliberately.

You can exercise now or when getting up in the morning. The point is establishing new circuits or connexions in the brain. It is really training.

The exercise will continue by looking at three or four successive fixed points marked by colored sticky labels. The apprentice acrobat you are will thus be able in the morning to go from his room to the corridor, then to the bathroom, the toilets, the kitchen, the living room, the balcony, the garden.

Do this every morning or at any other moment of the day. Don’t say you don’t have the time: it only takes four or five minutes. If you have forgotten to do it, go back and lie on your bed.

TO SUM IT UP:

  1. Sit on the edge of the bed and look at a fixed point.

  2. Get up without taking your eyes off it.

  3. Walk slowly towards that point.

  4. Stop. Both feet firmly on the ground.

  5. Look at the second point. Doing so, you may slightly move your neck and your head.

  6. Once your look is firmly fixed on the second point, you may carefully turn your torso, your pelvis and your legs towards the second point.

  7. Simply walk towards the second point and so on.

Results are guaranteed.

One could compare the fixed points to lighthouses for boats at sea that could be compared to the patient suffering from vertigo.

Back to sea travel. The first hour is the most important. Don’t let seasickness install itself. When the boat starts its journey, wherever you are and whatever happens, look outside: the earth, the sky, the stars, the moon but certainly not at the boat nor any part of it. If, for any reason, you can’t look outside, it would be better to keep your eyes closed. Or, maybe, a light point between the two eyes. Remember that in a carnival, you closed your eyes to get rid of vertigo.

On the contrary, sailors that landed after spending several months navigating often complained of “earth sickness” until their brain realized they were no more at sea.

Everything always sums up to learning.

Other types of “transport-sickness” exist (car, bus. . .). Same rule applies: look at the road and at the other cars. That is why the driver never gets seasick. You may also try Cocculine on also cocculus 5 CH.

A person I knew felt bad in cable cars. She panicked. I saw her eyes rolled in all directions. Same solution in this case: look far away outside, at the mountain peaks; never at the car or down outside.

In cases of heights vertigo—a phobia—the same “fixed point exercises” are effective. It also helps to hold the hand of somebody who doesn’t suffer from vertigo.

 

III.CHRONICLE DISEASES

  1. THYROPENIA

Hypothyroidism

It seems to me that in recent years problems with the thyroid gland have become more frequent. Many of the insufficiency cases are due to an autoimmune disease, the Hashimoto thyroiditis in which stress appears to play an important role. But, isn’t everybody stressed?

Is it because we measure it more often? Is it because of the pollution (the Chernobyl effect has been mentioned)? Is it because of stress, of medicines? Of hormones frequently prescribed to ladies? Any other reason?

Anyway, this pathology is much more frequent in women.

Let’s start with some anatomy and physiology.

The thyroid is at the base of the neck, on its front side. It has the shape of an H; two lobes linked by an isthmus. It can be palpated manually.

It is an endocrine gland (the hormone it produces flows directly in the blood).

The thyroid is controlled by the pituitary gland—a real orchestra conductor—that secretes a hormone, the thyroid-stimulating hormone.

The pituitary gland is in the lower part of the brain, in a little bony cavity called sella turcica. If you press the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth, it’s right there. It is part of the nerve-hormone system. It also controls the production of sexual hormones (testicles and ovaries) as well as the adrenal glands by secreting the respective stimulating hormones.

Back to the thyroid: it produces two hormones, T3 and T4; the T3 seems to be the active one. When the pituitary glands get the information their level is too low, the TSH rises and, in turn boosts their production or vice-versa.

The measurement of TH3, TH4 and TSH will allow a diagnosis: if TH3 and TH4 are low but TSH is high, it is a case of hypothyroidism.

Clinical signs of hypothyroidism are numerous:

-excessive feeling of cold

-hair loss, especially the external part of the eyebrows

-apathy, tiredness, depression, hypersomnia

-high cholesterol level

-constipation

-lower heart rhythm

-losing of libido

-dry skin

-drop in writing amplitude,

The gland sometimes develops in volume and becomes then very visible at the base of the neck: it’s the goiter. When very developed it may, in some cases, hinder speech and breathing.

When the insufficiency is significant, the skin thickens and loses its pinkish aspect.

Some people suffer hypothyroidism from birth.

In a patient suffering from birth, you may find all or only part of those symptoms. Some of these may even be contradictory. The doctor will decide according to the clinical picture and biological tests.

When diagnosis is confirmed, a treatment must be decided.

The classical and official treatment is Levothyroxine

Other medicines exist (alternative):

1 °) For some years, I have been prescribing a formula that has given results in cases where the disease is in its starting phase:

L.Tyrosine 500 mg, one or two capsules before breakfast,

Marine Magnesium, one capsule in the evening; this can be replaced with I.Biane (Pilèje Labs.), iodine extract from fucus.

After two months of treatment, a blood test has proved normal.

What’s more, the swelling had disappeared, cholesterol levels had decreased and the patient felt more tonic.

2 °) When the Levothyroxine treatment is already underway (it’s the most frequent case),

Actyr (Longevie Lab), before lunch.

Ladies before menopause frequently lack iron. They should have the ferritin level in the blood measured.

I will add urinary iso therapy as in all pathologies where immunity is involved.

And I will also add colored visualizations of the thyroid; and in an Ayurvedic medicine approach, white and sky blue will be used.

WHY NOT CONTENT ONESELF WITH LEVOTHYROXINE?

Because, as it occurs with all patented molecules, there may be

adverse side effects.

First are the contraindications: uncompensated heart disorders, coronary heart diseases (chd) and all uncontrolled troubles of the heart rhythm.

Then, we have the unwelcome side effects: cardiac insufficiency, angina, heart rhythm disorders, signs of hyperthyroidism.

All explanations above are given for information purposes only; nothing can replace consulting a doctor that knows both this pathology well and the medicines that complete official medicine.

In all cases, the thyroid must be examined by a specialist to assert the presence or the absence of pathologies other than hypothyroidism such as hyperthyroidism or cancer of the thyroid. But these are different subjects.
