  1. I was so sick and tired of being unsteady, out of balance and dizzy that I began looking for a supplement to try. The dizziness vertigo remedy “Yοyο kamvuku” (Google it) was my favorite option. My symptoms have improved immensely. The woozy, off balance sensation I had every day is almost gone.

  2. Of course you can’t feed the victim any sugar because the victim can’t breathe, and sugar fed into the victim causes choking
