Dizziness is something that most of us experience at some point in our lives. It is a feeling of light-headedness, unsteadiness or loss of balance and can cause fainting. Dizziness with a feeling of spinning is referred to as vertigo, which is different from the nonspecific light-headedness.
Dizziness is not a disease. It is a SYMPTOM of other conditions like low blood pressure, heart muscle disease, neurological disorders, anemia, allergies, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), tinnitus, ear infections, heat stroke, vision-related disorders, migraines, anxiety disorders, and head injuries.
CAUSES: Dizziness can be due to DEHYDRATION, motion sickness, stress, excessive exercise, hormonal changes in the body, and a side effect from medications.
SYMPTOMS: Dizziness may be accompanied by symptoms like false sense of motion, vision changes, blind spots, headaches, and slow or irregular pulse. Sometimes dizziness also causes a ringing noise in the ears, chest pain, weakness, nausea, vomiting, paleness, or loss of consciousness.
If your dizziness is not very frequent, you can try some natural home remedies to take care of the problem. However, if symptoms persist or occur more frequently, consult a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Here are the top 10 home remedies for dizziness.
Deep breathing is one of the best ways to deal with dizziness. It will help provide an adequate amount of oxygen to the brain, which in turn will relax the nervous system and reduce dizziness.
Sit or lie down in a comfortable position.
Place one hand on your abdomen, place the thumb of your other hand against one nostril and close your mouth.
Inhale slowly through your open nostril and try to fill your belly with air.
Hold the breath in, close both nostrils and purse your lips.
After 2 to 3 seconds, exhale slowly and try to extract air from your belly.
Repeat these steps 10 times.
Then, sit quietly for 5 minutes and breathe normally to avoid getting dizzy again.
Dehydration is a common cause of dizziness. This can be due to not drinking water for a long time or failing to rehydrate your body during and after exercise. Dehydration can also result from vomiting or diarrhea that causes excessive fluid loss.
When you feel dizzy, try drinking a glass of water. To keep dehydration and dizziness at bay, drink an ample amount of water throughout the day.
Dizziness can be caused due to a low blood sugar level, especially for diabetics. In addition, hunger can make you more prone to dizziness. So, when dizziness hits, try eating something. In fact, it’s a good idea to avoid remaining hungry for long periods of time if you are prone to dizziness.
Eat a snack that is high in fast burning, but nutrient dense, carbs,
Any FRUIT HIGH IN WATER CONTENT will do the trick.
Or have some Ginger available for a quick carb load and home remedy for dizziness.
Ginger is a time-tested remedy for dizziness and the nausea that often accompanies it. It stimulates blood flow to the brain and other parts of the body, which helps reduce the intensity of dizziness.
Chew on a small slice of fresh ginger root or suck on ginger candies to overcome dizziness.
Drinking ginger ale or ginger tea a few times daily will help prevent dizziness.
Another option is to take ginger supplements after consulting your doctor for the appropriate dosage.
