BC Balance and Dizziness

Supporting, inspiring and educating those affected by balance and dizziness disorders

Vestibular Disorders

It is great that you notice that you are hyperventilating. From that awareness, you can try voluntarily changing your breathing pattern. Slowing down, holding your breath in for at least three seconds improves your oxygenation. Another conscious effort you can make is to breathe deep into your belly. Place your hand on your abdomen and feel it expanding as you breathe in and contract as you breathe out.
