Chinese Medicine Theory On Vertigo

In Chinese Medicine Theory, vertigo is related to Qi/Blood deficiency, Dampness accumulation, Liver Yang rising, or Kidney Essence deficiency. The most frequent pattern is Qi deficiency which causes dampness accumulation. Dampness accumulates in the meridian around the inner ear area, then disrupts and blocks the flow of Qi; this causes loss of balance and the sensation that everything around you are spinning.

How Acupuncture For Vertigo Will Go?

Treating vertigo with acupuncture and herbs, Dr. Fu would choose SJ Meridian’s acupuncture points because SJ Meridian connects the ears and is good at clearing dampness. Also, he would use herbal medicine that increases Qi and reduces dampness. Like we mentioned before, stimulation of appropriate acupuncture points through acupuncture treatments help restore sufficient, continuous, even flow of Qi through the body, thereby restoring health and balance, while also relieving symptoms.

“I have been suffering from vertigo for 8 months and a pinched nerve in my leg for a month and a half. I tried all the traditional medical procedures and nothing changed. I heard about Dr. Fu from two neighbors and they were right! They were cured and I have been too!! Dr. Fu has amazing hands with a very gentle touch. At first I did not know what to expect from “needles.” But nothing ever hurt because of his expertise and natural ability to have a healing touch.”

– A. V. (Newport Beach, CA)

“Then I experienced a sever attach of vertigo that left me shaken. I was having trouble recovering from the effects of the condition.

Fortunately for me you were available to treat me.  The treatments helped me recover and got me back to my regular routine.

 All my previous experiences were using Western medicine treatments.  You helped me understand the healing process and how it would be affective for my situation if I had the patience to follow your guidance and allow the process to work.  Your analogy of the “screw half in” proved helpful and true.  Even though I experienced less and less symptoms, the process needed to be completed for a full recovery.  If the screw is left only half in it will become loose and the problems will reoccur.

Again, thank you for your skill and caring. I will always be grateful.

Best regards.”
