Why am I woozy?
Feeling woozy, dizzy, vertigo, or unsteady can be hard at times to describe. In general, balance problems are usually sensory, neurological, or orthopedic in nature. Dizziness can come from a variety of inner ear disorders, viral or bacterial infections, chronic inflammation (allergies, environmental, diet), childhood illness, head/neck injuries, neurological problems and other traumas.
Your condition is unique, so it’s helpful to get a diagnosis or evaluation from your physician or other specialist in vestibular or balance disorders. Getting access to a vestibular specialist may not be easy. The WUZI System may be a way to help you move forward to finding how to get to the source of your condition.

What can I do about it?
If you’re confused by your condition, you’ve come to the right place. Understanding dizziness is the first step in figuring out how to overcome it!
Your symptoms are unique, so we at WUZI will always recommend you try to get a diagnosis from your physician or other specialists in vestibular or balance disorders.
We also understand that you may not always have access to a specialist. Our goal is that WUZI can then also be helpful to both you and your doctor, therapist, acupuncturist or other health care practitioner, as they work to get you back to health.
It’s just as important to understand the layers of the condition, from how the inner ear works to how these disorders affect your mood and general health. If any of these chronic symptoms sound familiar, take our free evaluation to see how you can get back to balance with the WUZI System.
Do I have vertigo, dizziness
Many times you’ll hear the terms “vertigo,” “dizziness” and “disequilibrium” used interchangeably, but there are some major distinctions between them in definition and in treatment. To help you identify which condition you suffer from, use this general rule:
Vertigo: the actual feeling of the room/world spinning (the sensation that you, or the environment around you, is moving or spinning).
Dizziness: a woozy feeling typically marked by internal sensations of sway, lightheadedness, foggy-cloudy feeling, swimming sensation, pressure sensation in head or ears, visual disturbance, possible episodic nausea; people with general dizziness often find it difficult to describe exactly what they are feeling
Disequilibrium: feeling unsteady, loss of balance or sense of your position, often marked by a fear of falling
Many dizziness sufferers report the worst part of the condition is the impact it has on their self-confidence, state of mind, or quality of life. Often times, the emotional toll of dizziness is confused with the root cause.
These secondary symptoms — anxiety, panic, depression and more — are completely logical reactions to the complex signals your eyes and ears are sending to your brain. If you’re lost in space, spinning in time or out of sorts, you’ve probably felt like your problem is psychological, or some kind of character flaw. It isn’t!
With the WUZI System, you will find your secondary symptoms starting to improve. Once you begin to retrain your brain to ignore the flawed signals coming from damaged nerves or injury to the inner ear, your worries, sadness or stress fade gradually with each week of work. With patience and steady vestibular training, the WUZI System helps you get stronger to resolve your primary and secondary symptoms.
