Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is also called “Benign positional vertigo”, “Otolithiasis”. It’s one of the most common causes of vertigo. It can cause brief episodes of intense dizziness when a patient’s certain head positions or movements. The sudden sensation of spinning is generally thought to be caused by tiny solid fragments (Otoconia) in the inner ear labyrinth.
Sometimes, people can suffer from this conditions for months each time it flares up. We posted a case report regarding one of our clients tried moxibustion self-treatment and how they got relief from this condition.
Another client of ours tried the moxibustion self-treatment to get relief from this condition when it flared up again.
MS. M., dizziness and nausea caused by Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo flared up suddenly on 15/10/2016. The dizziness and nausea got worse when she was trying to turn to left. She couldn’t lie down on her left side at all. She decided to follow our instruction and try the moxibustion self-treatment as some help while she was waiting for the appointment to see an ENT doctor in the hospital on 17/10/2016. The symptoms improved after just two days. She continued with the moxibustion self-treatment after seeing the ENT specialist and also having treatment at the hospital as the symptoms were still there a little bit. All her symptoms went away completely and she could lie down on her left side again on 22/10/2016.
Hope this case report can be some helpful information for people suffering from this condition.
