Research has found that taking a vitamin D and calcium supplement twice daily could help reduce the chances of recurrence of vertigo. The research indicates that for individuals having benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, supplementing with vitamin D and calcium is an easy, low-risk means for preventing the recurrence of vertigo. It’s particularly effective for individuals who have low levels of vitamin D in the first place.

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is one of the most common forms of vertigo and occurs if a change in position of the head results in an abrupt spinning sensation. Treatment consists of a physician carrying out a number of head movements which shifts ear particles that result in vertigo. The condition however has a tendency to often reoccur, and approximately 86 percent of individuals with this type of vertigo report that it results in interruptions in daily life or missing days at work.

That’s where abortion funds come in. These organizations have been providing financial and logistical assistance to people seeking abortion care for decades.

The “An Arm and a Leg” podcast spoke with Oriaku Njoku, executive director of the National Network of Abortion Funds, and Tyler Barbarin, a board member with the New Orleans Abortion Fund, to understand the history behind these services and how they’re operating in a post-Roe v. Wade environment.
