Natural Supplements for Vestibular Disorders

Author: Cheryl Wylie, PT

Do you take supplements to help with your vestibular disorder?

Both Magnesium and Riboflavin have been shown to help migraines and can even reduce the number of migraine attacks experienced! A daily dose of 400-800mg of magnesium and 400mg B2 Riboflavin has been recommended in the research.

Vitamin D is a favourite around here as it has been shown to help prevent BPPV attacks, and may also reduce Meniere’s symptoms. Vitamin D is easy to test for, and it is recommended dosage is based on your current blood levels.

Ginger, as many of us know, is a great remedy for nausea, but studies have also shown it to also be helpful with reducing migraine pain (although unclear if it helps with dizziness experienced in vestibular migraines). It is recommended you take a quarter teaspoon of ginger powder at the first sign of a migraine attack.

Make sure to speak to a doctor before starting any supplement program. Also also remember that many of these vitamins and minerals can be found naturally in food, so eat up those healthy proteins and leafy greens!
