I am suffering from vertigo what kind of food should I avoid. And I have some kind of ringing sound in my left ear what can it be?

Hi, you need to avoid foods that are rich in Tyramine such as fermented products like Yoghurt, cheese, wine, red meat (smoked/grilled/fried), margarine, butter, foods with excess salt, junk food, foods high in sugar, caffeinated beverages, stored sea foods, citrus fruits, over ripened fruits, white breads, nicotine (tobacco), chocolates, foods containing trans-fats. Foods like whole grain cereals/ bread, vegetables and fruits, fish (fresh), green leafy vegetables (iron rich), lean meat, skin out chicken and plenty of fluids (water, fruit and vegetable juices with out sugar) can relieve from vertigo symptoms. Try reaching to floor or wall when the symptoms get severe. Intake of alkaline foods (vegetables and fruits (avoid over ripen fruits)) reduces the symptoms.
