About a year ago I was diagnosed with Benign Positional Vertigo The episodes rarely occur other than when I am laying down and turn onto my left side. Very bazzar... However they are horribly debilitating .  I have to sleep only on my right side, consequently this becomes very uncomfortable which leaves me with only about five hours of broken sleep per night.

This past Tuesday night I had two episodes, which is again quite unusual, however the episodes  left me not able to clearly focus, vomiting, and virtually unable to function most of the next day. It was the worst episode yet, my stomach did not settle and my eye sight did not return to normal focus for two days.

Has anyone experienced this? Any suggestions?

Cheers from Golfzilla!

check out the liver protocols.....
hepatiguard might be worth looking into


do you drink beer?

Fortunately, no!  

I have vertigo at times, but I just hold up the walls until I can kick-start my liver and get more of the junk cleaned out.  

Is it possible that yours is stimulated by contact with some food or environmental item that caused the "flare-up"?

This thought came to mind....given you're a golfer...out on the greens that are sprayed and toxified
so the grass looks gorgeous....I just wondered how many pesticides you're absorbing....airborne...
on your shoes (which shouldn't be coming into your home if you've worn them outdoors).  The
reason I'm bringing this up is because my brother in law, type O who used to be an avid golfer
when he lived in FL had horrible episodes of benign syncope...passing out from an unknown cause.
Made many trips to the ER and it was never determined what caused his problem.

Since he and my sister moved to Athens, Ga. opened a new business (and don't have time to play
golf), my brother in law's episodes have disappeared.  Perhaps a connection, perhaps not...but
when Lola mentioned the liver, it dawned upon me how many chemicals are on a golf course...
and probably everywhere when people live in climates where grass stays green most of the year. I know Atlanta does have winter...I grew up in Atlanta...but still I couldn't help but think of the need to detox from environmental pollution.  Have you bought any new products like carpet or furniture? Or even a new car? Lots of outgassing from chemicals.  What is your home heating fuel?  Gas? Oil?  Do you have a carbon monoxide sensor in your home?

The vomiting and burry vision combined with dizziness sounds like it could also be a
virus. (in which case you'd want to do an immune supporting protocol)

When I first started BTD (10/09) I did take a couple months of Hepatiguard.

I do drink gluten free beer, maybe one a week if that but probably not even that during the winter.  Why do you ask that?

ABJ, this is what Chloe is suggesting. I guess anything is possible with chemicles but how am I able to know

Maybe a start would be to remove your shoes at the door and not wear them throughout your house.  Socks and pants directly into the washer.

But heavy use of pesticides on the greens could be inhaled.  Perhaps not the problem, but since it's a bit of detective work here, it's worth considering.

Milk thistle can be bought locally if you don't have Hepatiguard.

Become a really good detective.  Keep a log of where you go, what you do, what you eat, any unusual smells, etc...  Yes, a big log.  This will give you a history of where you have been/done both when you did not have and when you do have an incident.  I have to do this, at least mentally, to be able to determine whether problems I am having are allergy or detox based.  

It is a constant struggle, but I am improving slowly.

ABJoe is right.  I have diligently played detective for my own health for many years.  I have discovered layers of mysteries which I have been able to solve, and each time, I move to a level of better health.  At first, it was very disturbing and I felt insecure.  Over time, I can see how the Genotype diet has accelerated the process and I have learned to trust the healing.

Aah that makes sense - I have this at times (posted about it a few months ago) & have had it again recently, after being over exposed again to a substance at work on Friday...
From my own experience (& experimenting) it seems it could be highly related to your exposure to pesticides etc & good to know it is curable by detoxing the liver??!!
Goodluck with that, Golf Those pesticides etc can be nasty things.. ironic in trying to get healthy - exercising etc you get exposed to nasties...

I have had the same, but did not have the vomiting.  I went to a Physical Therapist and she was able to move the fluid from one canal to another...have they tried this with you?  It would happen to me when I went to the dentist every 6 mos. for my cleaning after they had me in their chair that goes so low to the floor.  I also sleep now with 2 pillows.  It has been much better but every once in awhile if I turn my head a certain way, I will feel it just for a second and have to move my head up.  There are two different areas or chambers it can affect and they both have different positions to help move them depending on the area that is giving you trouble.  My ENT did helped me once with it and the next time I had it for 6 mos and that is when the PT said it was in a different area and helped me.  My ENT thinks that my vestibular system is very sensitive and that maybe they areas have worn out a little with age and it allows the fluid to move rather easily from chamber to chamber.  I have some literature I could fax or scan and email you if you would like that.  Hang in there.  I know how you are feeling.  Mine did get better but it took it off and on over a year to do so.

I have experience with this too. I saw an earspecialist and he told me it had to do with small crystal deposits in my ear. He told me that you can get rid of it if you lie on the side which makes you dizzy, wait until it is over, then lie on the other side, then sit up and stay in an upright position for 48 hours. I did not do this, but he said it would work.
I instead had an allergy test done and it turns out that I am allergic to milk (which I rarely drunk) and egg (I ate lots of eggs). Since I have stopped eating eggs, I have been fine. So, may an allergy test could help you.
