Are home remedies effective for treating vertigo?

While several suggestions for treatment of vertigo can be found, most of these are ineffective. Many cases of vertigo resolve spontaneously within a few days, which may promote the belief that a certain home remedy has been beneficial in resolving the symptoms.

The vestibular rehabilitation exercises (Cawthorne head exercises) or modified Epley maneuvers are meant to be done on a regular basis by patients, and may lead to marked improvements in vertigo.

Originally I became fuzzy, this was cured by taking travel pills. Next stage was severe migraine and severe loss of balance, I had to retire to bed. Then I started to do neck exercises, and for a few years all was well. Then loss of balance started again, and has slowly got worse.

This is my second occurrence of vertigo. This time on the 3rd day of it, I went to the doctor who performed the Epley maneuver on me. When I got home I felt like the vertigo was getting bad again; before I went to the doctor"s I was feeling a little bit better. I think perhaps it may have made matters worse for me.
