Natural Remedies For Fighting Dizziness
Dizziness is a general term used to describe a whole range of symptoms, from light-headedness to feeling like everything is spinning around the person (dizziness). It is also one of the most common reasons for visiting a doctor. Depending on the manifestation, it can be caused by a number of factors. Vertigo, the most common type of vertigo, can be caused by inflammation of the inner ear, migraines, Meniere’s disease (fluid buildup in the inner ear), flying on airplanes, riding roller coasters, reading in moving cars, etc. Sometimes by more serious neurological problems like stroke or MS. Light-heartedness can be caused by a sudden drop in blood pressure (like standing up suddenly), inner ear problems, anxiety disorders (panic attacks), or hyperventilation.
One of the best-known natural remedies for common causes of dizziness is fresh ginger. Chinese sailors chewed it for dizziness thousands of years ago. You can either chew a slice or drink it as a tea. Ginger tea has stimulating properties and can help prevent dizzy spells. Cinnamon and peppermint can also be helpful.
Drinking celery juice not only relieves your dizziness, but it can also help lower blood pressure.
Ginkgo biloba helps with vertigo problems as it promotes blood circulation in the inner ear and corrects some inner ear problems.
Another good herb is feverfew. Not only has it been proven to help with migraines, it can also reduce inflammatory processes in the inner ear and improve blood circulation.
If dizziness is accompanied by panic, stress, or anxiety, you need to try Rescue Remedy (an equal blend of Cherry Plum, Rock Rose, Impatiens, Clematis, and Star of Bethlehem Flower).
And then there’s the remedy that seems to cure everything, apple cider vinegar. Try mixing a teaspoon each of apple cider vinegar and honey in a glass of hot or cold water. Taking it three times a day should help this annoying phenomenon quite significantly.
Another way to treat dizziness is to add the juice of a lemon or lime to half a glass of soda water and drink it in small sips.
An inner ear infection can be treated quite successfully with colloidal silver.
Sometimes stopping stimulants like coffee, cola, and alcohol can also help fight dizziness, as it helps balance blood pressure.
Another herbal remedy consists of a mixture of fenugreek and thyme. Although it is mainly used for respiratory and allergic problems, it is also very effective in getting rid of dizziness.
