AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A University of Colorado Hospital doctor has become a YouTube sensation as a result of her simple maneuver for treating vertigo at home.

“Tip your head up to look at the ceiling.”
You then put your head upside down like you’re going to do a somersault.
“In that position, I want you to turn to face your left elbow,” Foster said
“You wait for any dizziness to end then raise your head to back level. Wait again for dizziness to end, then sit back quickly. The half somersault maneuver has been a huge hit with nearly 2 million views on YouTube.”
“I don’t think I’ve gotten up to the level of a cat video yet,” Foster laughed.
