Weakness and Dizziness Without Cause

Posted by L on 03/10/2008

Hi Ted, I'm writing to you for some real suggestions. I've had this major problem thats been happening over the last 5 to 6 months and its getting worse.I've been getting really faint and dizzy, like i'm going to pass out,it's a feeling like I'm going to die almost. I can't feel my legs, parts of my body and I get very weak and I have to grab onto something. This is horrible. This happens at times throughout the day. I've had to take time off work because of this. I went to a doctor and he gave me full blood tests,all came back with good results. I also had a ct scan and nothing showed up. This weakness,dizziness still keeps happening and I'm really getting worried about this. Do you know of anyone thats in the same situation.Please try to find out what it could be and what solutions are available. Please.

Dear Lee: Most tests performed by doctors may leave out important elements that was not considered. A spinal fluids or brain fluids if it is low can lead to problems so this might have by passed the test. Weak form of septicemia such as low grade fever are virtually undetectable, where source of bacteria comes from the tooth cavities but causes extreme dizziness and fainting spells in my friend. An virus usually virtually undetectable by most conventional methods, lies active in the brain causing not just dizziness, and other conditions too. I can list many other things that might be causing it that is virtually undetectable, such as a drinking water, where toxins are found and many pharmaceutical drugs are found in combination with chlorines are virtually toxic to the brain. That interesting story from two sources where the use of Reverse Osmosis, plus hydrogen peroxide or ozone will remove many of those toxins that are now widespread throughout the world. Since I do not know much any person's particular dietary health and past history I can however start with something simple, by adding 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt in one glass of water and drink that only one dose for the entire day. A weak form of septicemia would show improvement in the dizziness and some other fainting spells since bacteria are often sensitive to a small amount of salt. If the condition doesn't improve a second day test requires then the next step is to get a DISTILLED water, add baking soda such as 1/16 teaspoon and a very small amount of sea salt in a glass of water and try this over for a day to see if the conditions will improve. This test checks for the presence of contaminated tap water where an unknown toxins or pharma drugs that exists in many water supplies. If there might be some improvement, than a larger test might be considered. Which means a' distilled water is to add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt to a one liter of drinking water drank throughout the day. If this is working then we have a contaminated water supply system. If that doesn't work then there is the possibility of a virus or a hormonal imbalance causing the problem. I will start simple and just get peppermint oil. This peppermint oil is unique in several respects, it has some antiviral properties, it is hormonal in that it is cortisone like causing reduced inflammation of various body organs which might have lead to dizziness spells. So taking drop or two of peppermint oil a couple of times a day whenever there is that feeling, if it works might be those causes. Cayenne pepper remedies such as 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne peppers mixed in drinking water can also be tested to rid of certain viruses too by improving the circulation. If the drinking source is contaminated a water with added drops of hydrogen peroxide such as 10 - 30 drops of 3% H2O2 added to drinking water will usually neutralize most of the toxins, or a simpler reverse osmosis with ozonation treatment and some added sea salt and baking soda is added to make it a normal water, or reconstituted water that is relatively free of unknown toxins. A viral brain condition or presence of fungus and mycoplasma or moldy house, especially if the house has carpets, rugs migha also be the cause. An easy way to test this is to stay in another place relatively free of this such as a clean hotels or other places where there is no moldy environments. If this is the cause, then I think I will likely add between 1/8 teaspoon to 1/4 teaspoon of borax plus 10 drops of 3% H2O2 in a drinking water to kill off the fungus and mycoplasma in by drinking water. An unlikely scenario is the Morgellons or Lupus that I witness, but this is virtually connected with extreme weakness and joint pain, plus people sneeze or allergic to your presence (the tiny fibers from Morgellon's is what is causing the problem). Then usually 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day, plus some drinking water with borax will neutralize most of this problem. Still I don't think it is this, but will at least mention them in passing and its known remedies. BHT is one of the frew remedies I know where it can kill a virus that lurks in the brain since it goes through the blood brain barrier and might be useful whenever such viruses are lodged in that area such as bird's flu virus, and other viruses that lives there but causes a person to be very weak whenever the immune systems are down causing a brain fog. A brain fog, or a sudden blank, then we might even get a petite mal (instead of grand mal), which is a weak form of epileptic seizures. Usually in my books anyway these are high heavy metals problem and chlorella and spirulina supplements are taken for 5 days out of a week, and some one tablespoons of granulated lecithin. A yeast problem can initiate this problem or even eating too much bakery products can too, or the lack of some essential fatty acids by supplementing with Evening Primose oil and flaxseed migh also help some improvements too. Finally and the most obvious of all but I think the doctors should already know this, that's why it's not mentioned is the stability of blood sugar throughout the day. If that is unstable, this could cause fainting spells too. Interesting viruses and certain other pathogens can also take a lot of sugar way from the body and can also initiated that fainting thing just the same since the brains' metabolism is extremely high and needs oxygen and glucose all the time. To maintain stable blood sugar are usually through sugar control supplements such as aspirin, chromium, vanadium and manganese supplements. However assuming this is NOT the problem then I am left with blood circulatory problems and a simple alkalization should help this since alkalization increases capillary blood flow more since it is the acid that leads to blood vessel constrictions. Since information is lacking those are some possibilities to explain the condition or problem but doctor's should have known the cause unless their diagnostic was not complete enough.

I had weakness, dizziness and felt like I was going to fall down. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I went home did some research found that dizziness, shortness of breath, weakness, headache, fatique, can be causes by a sinus infection or inner or outer ear infection. I had no symptoms, except I felt dizzy and little short of breath, Ran to ENT dr had a nasal smear and xray of sinuses. I had a sinus infection as well an an outer ear infection. For the ear infection I took garlic mullein oil in my ear for a couple weeks. And I skipped the antibiotics. And took 4000 mg vitamin C, twice a day for one month and 4 drops Grapefruit seed extract in orange juice and virgin coconut oil 3 x a day. And a sinus wash and ointment NO more dizziness, weakness or that weriod feeling like i'm going to fall down.

I've been through all of the same things for years. Its called Candida go to any candida web site. Its from breeding the candida by eating too much sugar or lots of carbs for a long time. Then when you don't eat sugar for a day or so, the candida dies off and you go through what they call die off symtoms where you feel like you have the flu or you feel like your going to fall down from the inside. I promise you if you clean up your diet, go back to God's original plan which was vegetables and fruit and grains you will not be like that but you' wont be able to eat fruit for a while untill you get your beneficial bacteria back in balence. Unfortunately you'll probably go through some die off symtoms for awhile.

This could be Syncope—a sudden loss in blood pressure that could cause you to black out.
