Scientists have discovered a surprising relationship between vertigo and osteoporosis: Most people who have one of these conditions will also have the other. Because these two conditions are the result of the same underlying cause, natural remedies for vertigo are almost identical to natural remedies for osteoporosis. Therefore, by using a combination of nutrients, that is, several selected vitamins, minerals and herbs, osteoporosis and vertigo can be treated at the same time.
Nutrients you need to treat osteoporosis and vertigo
Research shows that vertigo and osteoporosis have an unexpected link. People who have vertigo - the feeling of dizziness or dizziness even when the body is at rest - are more likely to have bone loss.
In contrast, people with osteoporosis, or low bone density, were three times more likely to have vertigo. And, those with osteopenia (or pre-osteoporosis) were twice as likely to have vertigo as people with normal bone density.
The association was more pronounced in women - nearly 75% of people with a vertigo diagnosis had osteopenia or osteoporosis compared to just 43% of patients who did not experience dizziness.
Calcium is the link between vertigo and osteoporosis
While vertigo can be triggered by a number of underlying issues (swelling or fluctuating pressure in the inner ear, Meniere's disease, etc.) one of the main causes is loose calcium carbonate crystals moving through inner ear sensing tubes. The inner ear governs the sense of balance.
Both vertigo and osteoporosis are more common in post-menopausal women becau
