Dizziness symptoms can be cured or markedly attenuated by self-induced irregular repetitive cool water caloric stimulations. Deliberate dizziness treatment (DDT) artificially creates dizziness, which through a program of gradually progressive balancing maneuvers, can habituate to no sensation. This dizziness control carries over to spontaneous episodes of dizziness such as Meniere's syndrome.
