Dizziness as a symptom

Dizziness is a very debilitating symptom that often defies explanation. It can arise suddenly without warning or begin slowly and increase in intensity. People go to many doctors and have many tests run that show nothing suggesting a cause. An attempt is always made to classify this in some way as if giving it a name or a diagnosis makes it easier to cure. Sometimes it is benign positional vertigo or Meniere’s Disease. No matter. There is no real specific treatment to fix it because the exact cause is not known or understood.

To be sure, a symptom is a sign that something is wrong and there is a cause! After helping people for over four years with dizziness, it is apparent that after ruling out serious causes such as nerve diseases and cancer there are a number of other categories that cannot be readily found with medical tests.

One is mechanical and discussed at length on the vertigo page.

The other scenario is where people are undernourished, toxic, and have allergies. This is poorly understood because people and their doctors seldom associate what they eat with this symptom. If their doctors don’t mention it, it doesn’t exist, and most people think they eat well and readily say so. Toxins are everywhere in the air and in our food and drink. People don’t think they are toxic because toxins or poisons connote more serious extreme symptoms. Toxins slowly build up and make people ill and in many people dizzy symptoms are what they get. Frequently, food allergies are the primary cause. Many people have poor nutritional status, are toxic and have sensitivities together since they are related and may cause each other. Even more confusing is that not every one who is toxic, sensitive or has poor nutritional status has the symptom of dizziness. But over four years helping scores of people with these symptoms, in almost every case where I have been able to bring people’s wellness or health up to an acceptable level, the symptoms have diminished or disappeared. You can read and view video testimonials of this below beginning with two women who were given up on and told they had to live with their symptoms.

Diane Mitchell, seen in the video, came to me after being diagnosed by Mass. Eye & Ear with Meniere’s Disease. She was told there was no cure and that she had to live with it. Whether Meniere’s is a true disease, per se, is a good question. To me, Meniere’s is simply a name given to a set of symptoms. Two people’s sets of Meniere’s may not actually be the same thing. Symptoms are produced by the body when something is wrong. Often, it is the unhappy response of the body to an altered environment.  Diane Mitchell was full of environmental toxins, had poor nutritional status and was sensitive to many food items. After correcting for these she is symptom free almost all the time.

Many many sets of symptoms or types of unwellness are the result of toxic environmental poisons coupled with nutritional deficiencies.  We have polluted the environment and changed the food so much that what we eat as food does not provide the ingredients necessary to fuel the body’s normal detoxification systems, much less run normal body physiology.  The toxins build up in body unable to resist and when the amount or burden of toxins gets high enough along with deficiencies, normal physiology breaks down and symptoms are the result.

Mary Augustinowicz is a major case in point of a woman left with no viable life, who drives over 2 hours one way to see me, and has had her life restored to her. She tells the story best in the following video:

Gabrielle, a young lady, started with me 2 years ago and has persevered through many hard times. Below is her story.   

"I am amazed at how far I've come since I've been treated by Dr. Jackson. When I arrived at his office 2 years ago, I couldn't walk, lay down, turn my head or even close my eyes with getting dizzy. I was a 27-year-old teacher who had been completely healthy my entire life and I could not function without dizziness or brain fog. Dr. Jackson said I was an extreme case and I puzzled him at times. Although my case was severe, he never gave up on me. Each time I saw him, I gradually got better and better. It felt like a miracle to me! I had previously seen countless physicians, 2 ENT's, and a neurologist. I had 2 MRI's, an MRV, I went to 2 different physical therapists for months and I was prescribed 3 different medications. After all that, no one could give me any explanation and no one helped me get better until I met Dr. Jackson. I am not dizzy anymore and I can't believe I can lay down at night and fall asleep without taking Dramamine! I'm getting married in a few months and I feel such hope for my future. I am so blessed to have found him."

Story of successful dizziness and vertigo treatment from Cassandra R.

"My vertigo started when I was sixteen years old. I had been to numerous doctors and had been put through multiple tests only to be given the diagnosis of vestibular migraines. It took me years to get this diagnosis and I thought that I had just to learn to live with it. I was dizzy from the time I woke up until I fell asleep at night. I missed out on a lot in life. What I could manage to do was difficult and extremely tiring. I continued to try and find ways to make being dizzier easier to deal with.

I was pushed to find way to get rid of the vertigo once it became worse. I went on a weekend trip for work. I had a migraine while on the trip, but the vertigo became intense. It had not been that bad since it had started over ten years ago. The vertigo became so severe I could not work. During the first couple weeks I was home from work I looked up everything I could on vertigo and migraines. This was a difficult task because looking at a computer made the vertigo much worse. I came across Dr. Jackson’s website and for once felt a little bit of hope. I met with Dr. Jackson and began to look at environmental toxins and diet as causes for my vertigo.

Through a series of steps Dr. Jackson helped me in removing toxins from my body and my environment, changing my diet, and correcting both food and environmental allergies. The vertigo ‘buzz’ that I felt every day has dwindled to almost nothing. My body feels more balanced and secure. After working with Dr. Jackson I feel like I can actual live my life instead of just getting through each day. I feel empowered and strong for the first time in twelve years."

Testimonial of Wayne Higgins

"I started about five years ago with symptoms of what I thought was food poisoning from eating some bad sea food. I got dizzy and broke out in a severe sweat and the room started spinning. It was so severe that I could not even crawl without falling. I was laying on my back, my eyes were shaking as if I was having a seizure. Next I became nauseous and started vomiting. After an hour and a half of that I finally made it to the bed. The next day my body was completely drained of all energy. The attacks got more frequent until they were three weeks apart. I was tested by a neurologist and was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease. I have been on medication for a number of years with a few attacks every year. This past year I had two attacks within three weeks the last on Christmas Eve and knew it was time to find an alternative solution.

I was told about Dr. Robert Jackson and that he could help with my problem. I made an appointment with him and got tested for toxins and heavy metals. The tests were positive. Dr. Jackson found my body was full of toxins and heavy medals of all types, such as lead, copper, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. Dr. Jackson starter treating me with a change of diet and medication to cleanse the toxins from my body. I have also lost about 20 pounds and feel great. It has been almost six months with no attacks and I feel like I can go places without worrying if I will have another attack. Dr. Jackson I want to thank you for changing my life back to normal and getting me on the right track to healthy living and eating."

What to expect. Prior to the initial visit the patient is asked to fill out a toxicity survey and write a description of his/her habitual diet which they bring with them. During the initial visit an analysis is done without x-rays, blood tests, urine or saliva tests. It is totally painless and non-invasive and consists of the following:

1. Visual Contrast Sensitivity Test - a simple eye test where the viewer reads a card that determines the ability to detect the visual patterns of shades of grey. This measures the health of the photoreceptors of the eye with regard to the level of toxicity.

2. HRVT(Heart Rate Variability Test) - examines the heart rhythms and it’s variability which determines the level of health and degree of functioning of the involuntary nervous system.

3. MRT(Muscle Response Testing) - This is a hands-on examination technique that combines Western medicine and Oriental medicine and uses muscle testing as a bio-feedback indicator of the body’s response to certain stressors. These stressors cause change in the autonomic nervous system as the primary indicator of practitioner-elicited stress responses in the client’s body as reflected in muscle strength. Also called Bio-resonance testing, it allows the practitioner to scan the body to examine our physical condition, the safety of food, toxins, the electromagnetic environment, and obtain information about substances through their electromagnetic fields. This is done by the following:

  • Electromagnetically (placing substances in the field)
  • Structurally, pushing on a body area, squeezing an organ or gland, stressing a joint etc.
  • Contacting reflexes or acupuncture points

The patient’s response to the stressor is reflected in the muscle testing. Once stressors are identified, therapeutic modalities(supplements or homeopathics) are tested. Whatever neutralizes the stress response is an agent or a method that will help the body cope with the underlying cause of the stress (unless it is determined to be an allergen).

In this way, toxins and deficiencies are identified along with the necessary protocol( supplements, homeopathics, dietary changes, prevention, etc.) specific to the individual and a program of detoxification and health restoration is established and recommended to the individual

This method is used by and commented on by the following:

  • Dr. Savely Yurkovsky, MD, Cardiologist- On the whole, Bio-resonance testing represents the single most powerful diagnostic modality available in the world today.
  • Professor Yoshiaki Omura, M.D. Director of Medical Research, Heart Disease Research Foundation, President, International College of Acupuncture and Electro-Therapeutics, New York
  • Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D.-Klinghardt Academy of Neurobiology

I am using this method as a part of my dizziness treatment system which helps my patients to get their health back and enjoy life without dizziness symtoms. If you are suffering from dizziness, call me to schedule an appointment. I will do my best to bring your healthy life back.
