Dizziness is one of the symptoms of the PDS (Postural Deficiency Syndrome). Doctors and patients must be aware of this fact. Otherwise, they are risking doing medical tests that are completely useless. They're risking prescribing useless drugs as well, which sometimes have iatrogenic actions.
The only appropriate solution is to correct the proprioceptive system. This symptom disappears at once and it increases the patient´s life quality. The technique is the same we are using for the others symptoms of PDS.

Chronic Tiredness

Tiredness is normal after periods of activity. This symptom usually disappears after pausing. However, there are some kinds of tiredness that don't disappear after pausing. With some of them, it is possible to detect organic problems (metabolic, degenerative, tumoral, malformation, heart and lung problems, etc.). However, there is a kind of tiredness where nothing is detected, the proprioceptive chronic tiredness.
In this case, the tonic muscle fibers remain in stress because their mechanism to relax is blocked by the proprioceptive system. The consequence is chronic fatigue. Tests for proprioceptive dysfunction are highly positive in these cases.
If we correct the proprioceptive system, tiredness disappears at once.

Eyes and Proprioception

The direct proprioceptive pathway in the visual system begins at the oculomotor muscle. To have a correct visual information on the position of our body and the objects we are seeing, we need information about the objects and about our eyes position. The information on the objects is carried out by the retina and visual pathways. The information about the eyes' position is carried out by proprioceptive pathways from the eye muscles. However, these two structures are not linked at eye-level but at brain-level.
Active prisms can modify the proprioceptive dysfunction at brain-level using the vision to reach the brain.

Shoes and Proprioception

The feet have important proprioceptive captors in their structure. They can inform the brain about the position of the body even with your eyes closed. To maintain the information from the feet correct at all times, shoes must be made according to main rules that replicate the position of bare feet. It is a hard task for shoemakers because usually they lack the proprioceptive knowledge to do so.
If we pass a sheet of paper underneath an usual shoe, we verify that the sheet of paper usually advances up to a 1/3 of the foot. The big toe being the guiding toe for the standing and walking positions, this means the big toe is completely deprived of its proprioceptive function.
Proprioceptive shoes must respect this physiological condition.
We are building proprioceptive shoes according to this condition.
Wrong proprioception leads to back pain, unbalance, cognitive disturbances including dyslexia and to the other symptoms of Postural Deficiency Syndrome (PDS).
To correct the symptoms of this syndrome, we need appropriate shoes among other techniques for treatment. These shoes are also required for prevention, not just for treating.
Inappropriate shoes could be a factor of aggression to the proprioceptive system and be harmful to human health.

Why put together UNBALANCE, PAIN and DYSLEXIA?

It seems nonsense to put together 3 completely different symptoms. However, this is just an apparent nonsense.
In fact, these 3 symptoms are linked. They are the consequence of a proprioceptive dysfunction and they belong to a same syndrome called Postural Deficiency Syndrome (PDS) and all of them respond to the same type of treatment.
