images (13)
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.

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.

1. Deep Breathing  (what to do when it happens)

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.

2. Drink Water (#1 way to combat dizziness)

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.

3. Eat Something (if you’re totally hydrated – check your blood sugar)

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.
