Web site: http://www.simonsays.com/. PRICE: $14 plus shipping and handling. Language: English. Abstract: In this chapter from a patient guide book on managing and treating balance disorders, the authors talk about toxic substances in our lives that cause us harm--in this case, lightheadedness, dizziness, vertigo, unsteadiness, and other similar symptoms. The authors discuss the two categories of toxic substances--those we ingest intentionally, like over- the-counter and prescription drugs, alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine; and the environmental toxins that include pollution and toxins found in the air, water, food, and common objects we use or come in contact with in our daily lives. The goal is to make the reader more aware of these toxic substances to better work with their healthcare providers to uncover the true source of the balance problem. Subject Category: Balance.
