Keto Diet Facts & Tips

Why do I have vertigo?

One cause is having mucus in your sinuses. Another cause is having calcium deposits in the inner ear.

What is potentially behind these problems?

  • Too much calcium – Flunarizine is a drug that acts as a calcium antagonist. This means that it blocks calcium. If your situation gets better on this drug, this is a sign that your vertigo is related to too much calcium.

  • Not enough vitamin D – New studies show that low levels of vitamin D may contribute to vertigo. Vitamin D is involved in calcium metabolism and regulation. It is also important for promoting the normal function of the immune system, which can potentially reduce sinus congestion.

  • Low vitamin K2 – Vitamin K2 helps remove calcium from the wrong places in your body. It then transports the calcium to the bones.

The best remedies for vertigo are:

  • Vitamin D3 (10,000 IU/day)

  • Vitamin K2 - MK7 version (100 mcg/day)
