In this 13-minute video, several BC Balance and Dizziness members, including the husband of a dizzy wife, share how chronic dizziness changed their lives. It is inspiring to learn how diligent practice of the exercises demonstrated on our Gaining Balance video helped them cope with dizziness and get on with their lives.
After doing the [Gaining Balance] exercises there are certain movements I can do now, like putting my head back and looking at the ceiling without feeling any dizziness. Now I can cope with my life and do more - I have more confidence in myself. ~ Cynthia Wu
Pauline [Pauline Martin is the instructor on the Gaining Balance video] always pushed us to the point of feeling dizzy and encouraged us that that was where we needed to work. We were to do the things that made us dizzy so that we could learn to cope with them. The exercises really helped me. I have not had to use a cane for three years. Although I’m still dizzy, I’m able to cope. Life is definitely worth living again. ~ Rae Smith
I learned to trust Pauline [Pauline Martin is the instructor on the Gaining Balance video]. With time I found that the more often I did the movement the better I could cope with it. There are movements I can do now that don’t make me dizzy at all. It’s marvellous. ~ Muriel Kauffmann
