Vertigo is called xuanyun in traditional Chinese medicine, since the blurred vision is called xuan and dizziness is called yun. In mild cases, the symptoms may disappear when the eyes are closed; in severe cases, patients may suffer from nausea, vomiting, sweating, difficulty standing, symptoms of motion sickness, and even syncope. Auditory vertigo, cerebral vertigo, toxic vertigo and vertigo in patients with paroxysmal tachycardia, auriculoventricular blockage, anemia, cerebral injury, and neurasthenia can be treated by the following methods.
