I have recently started taking Capoeira classes at my local gym. It involves a lot of spins, kicks, flips, etc.

I have been feeling really dizzy after just a few spins, a lot more than when I was SAD. My fiancee (90% raw) has been experiencing the same thing.

Could we be missing a certain vitamin/nutrient?

Thanks in advance!


  • I will wager a guess and say that you’re not eating enough – too low in calories can cause dizziness.

  • Lagston, I think this is fairly common. Motion sickness. I get dizzy really easily too. Spin me around a few times I will surely be dizzy. Haven’t tried it since going raw though ;). I remember in HS having to do “monkey rolls” in practice. I took Dramamine (motion sickness pills) before every practice, but they never helped much. I would always end up on the sideline almost puking, yet every practice the coach still made me do it, sheesh.

    I wish I had some good advice, but just know you aren’t alone. I just avoid activity that would make me dizzy. I’m a rock climber so I’m not spinning in circles :)

  • I have had the same thing on and off. I know that some don’t believe in B-12 deficiency, but I thought I would add a little to my diet. I figured it might not help, but it wouldn’t be harmful. I started eating a little nutritional yeast and I am not sure if it was a coincidence or if it was B-12, but it went away!
