Our vertigo is linked to the inner ear signals, that are responding to different rotations and tilts and accelerations, and helping us to remain stable and make use of our balance. They are in direct communication with our eyes and there is a very quick neural arch — neural reflexes, from the inner ears to the eyes. They’re some of the most primitive and fastest reflexes in the body. So, the eyes and the ears are talking with each other and they’re talking very quickly. For some people, especially when they’re tired, when they’re exhausted, when they’re overwhelmed, when there’s a lot of emotional processing that perhaps has backlogged and needs sorting out, needs feeling through in those times, high stress, high trauma, etc., the vertigo and eye conflict eye movements can be exacerbated. So, we can feel like computer screens, busy situations, perhaps at a train station with lots of moving vehicles, crowded places, supermarkets with lots of colors aggravate us and our symptoms.
Eye movements and the sensation of vertigo do go hand in hand but it’s also part of your healing. Following the Rock Steady process and the Rock Steady pathway for healing eye related vertigo, you’ll find it’s all reversible. A lot of it comes down to pausing and listening to the body, learning how to best support our body, support your nervous system, understand your nervous system, and self-regulate so that you can then rebuild new normal pathways that have stable vision and a sense of steadiness in terms of our balance organs. So, the healing will be the Rock Steady path of using neuroplasticity to build new neural maps that function with healthy eye movements.
