Scary dizzy attacks? Peruse our Home Remedies for Vertigo and then see your Doctor to confirm what the cause of this sensation of light-headedness, sinking or falling and even spinning of the room can be.
So many people believe the worst when they have an attack of dizziness and what do they do about it..... nothing cause they are scared!
So to help you not be so scared, we are first going to explain what the reasons for dizziness are and you will be pleasantly surprised to find out how many of them are simple problems that can be easily solved.
There are quite a few things that could be the cause of vertigo, the dizziness that occurs when the brain receives strange messages from the ears and eyes.
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).
Inflammation of the inner ear
Low Blood Pressure
Dizziness accompanied by a dry mouth, thirst, dark urine and decreased urination.
Dizziness and nausea often go hand in hand and one of the traditional old fashioned home remedies for vertigo and nausea is to eat ginger. You can eat it by slice, grate it or make yourself a ginger tea. If you don't like the taste of ginger then supplements will also do the trick.
Manipulate your Salt content
If you have Ménière's Disease you might suffer attacks of vertigo which occurs when fluid accumulates in the inner ear. If this is the case then following a low salt diet can help reduce the fluid build up that results in attacks of vertigo.
If however you suffer from low blood pressure (which can cause this dizziness) help yourself to a handful of salt and vinegar chips to help bring your blood pressure back up to normal.
Olive Leaf Tea
The olive leaf is now recognised as an excellent natural medicine and a cup of olive leaf tea a day is believed to be a big help towards curbing dizziness. Add a cup of fresh leaves to a cup of boiling water, allow to stand for 5 min, strain and sip slowly.
Apple Cider Vinegar
This is well known as a digestive stimulant, which then helps regulate blood pressure and maintain blood glucose levels, two reasons for getting dizzy.
If you suffer from BPPV as described above you have another option, which is not a home remedy for vertigo if you do not know how to do it.
It is rather a natural remedy which should initiallly be performed by a medical practitioner who is completely familiar with this maneuver.......namely the Epley Maneuver named after Dr John Eply.
This is a layman's interpretation of what will happen.
A shortage of Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) is very often overlooked as a reason for dizziness, but it is very easy to detect a deficiency in this Vitamin and also very simple to treat.
Consult your Doctor for a shot of B12 or else pig out on foods from the list of Vitamin B12 rich foods below:
"Vitamin B12 can be consumed in large doses because excess is excreted by the body or stored in the liver for use when supplies are scarce. Stores of B12 can last for up to a year, which is why it takes a long time before people realize they have a deficiency in their diet."
"the art of healing comes from Nature and not from the Physician - therefore the Physician must start with nature with an open mind".
