Home Remedies For Vertigo : Stop The Spin And Dizziness Now

Looking for home remedies for vertigo? This article will show you what you can do to deal with this illusion problem. In actuality, vertigo is not a disease like many people have misunderstood. It is actually a symptom of other health problems such as low blood pressure, inflammation of the inner ear, arterial hardening, and occurrence of calcium carbonate stones in the inner ear causing increased fluid pressure and among others.

Vertigo is actually a balance disorder. It is a condition where the sufferer would feel abnormal dizziness and having an illusion of things around him or her are moving around when there is actually no movement at all. The environment might even seem to be spinning to the sufferer and hence a loss of balance, double vision, nausea and even vomiting.

Depending upon the severity of the condition, vertigo might not actually be a life threatening condition. It may be resulted from inflammation or injury of the inner ear, building up of pressure of the fluids in the inner ear as well as injury to the neck and head.

Before we look at some effective home remedies for vertigo, let’s take a look at some of the common causes of the condition first, and they are:

  • Seasickness or motion sickness
  • Low blood pressure
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol level
  • Diabetes
  • Neck and head injuries
  • Buildup of calcium carbonate stones in the inner ear
  • Inflammation of the inner ear
  • Injury to the nerves
  • Hardening of arterial walls
  • Brain tumor

As there are many reasons as to why vertigo occurs, you should get the condition checked by your doctor or a medical practitioner. Finding out the underlying causes of the symptoms is important before any treatment can be done.

The most common cause of vertigo is the interruption of blood supply to the brain. When blood supply to the brain is reduced, symptoms such as vertigo develop.

Home Remedies For Vertigo

Generally if you are suffering from vertigo, there are things in your diet that you need to watch for, and they are:

  • Eat more vegetables and fruits
  • Consume food products high in protein
  • Stop consuming coffee
  • Avoid alcoholic drinks and beverages
  • Reduce sodium intake

In addition to the list above, consuming strawberry yogurt with some milk and almonds have also been known to provide great relieves for vertigo symptoms. While these home remedies are great, they aren’t complete without incorporating ginger and ginkgo biloba into your diet. Here’s why.

Ginger

Ginger is a herb that has been known for centuries for its anti-nausea properties. Similarly, it can also be used to treat other problems such as seasickness, queasy stomach, vertigo and is also very good for indigestion.

Ginger particularly ginger root has the ability to halt the symptoms of vertigo as soon as it strikes, making it one of the best home remedies for vertigo symptoms. It can even halt the symptoms almost instantly. Therefore, keeping some slices of ginger root may be a good idea as they come in handy in times of needs.

Ginkgo Biloba

Besides ginger, one should also take ginkgo biloba, another Chinese herbs great for vertigo. Ginkgo biloba can be taken in the form of supplements. It works by promoting blood flow within the body. With more blood flowing uninterrupted to the brain as well as to other important parts of the body previously reduced by arterial hardening or even narrowing, the symptoms of vertigo can be greatly reduced.

More Home Remedies For Vertigo

On the other hand, if your vertigo condition is diagnosed to be caused by calcified stones in your inner ear, getting rid of them is essential. As the fluids of the inner ear that keep us balanced is disturbed by these stones, dizziness and spinning feeling may occur. Hence, removing them is essential.

In this case, the home remedies for vertigo would include the use of hydrogen peroxide to loosen these lodged stones and some positional therapy to help dislodge the stones.

Depending on how severe the stone buildup is, smaller stones are usually rather easy to remove with just hydrogen peroxide.

In addition, you can also perform some simple positional therapy to help. Start by sitting on your bed with a pillow right on your back against the wall. Then slowly tilt your head to the left until you are half way to your shoulder. Now do the same for the right side. Repeat this therapy again for a couple more times and it will help loosen and dislodge the stones for easier removal when used in conjunction with hydrogen peroxide.

    I’ve tried everything and seen every specialist in my area with no results. My vertigo can last up days at a time and its completely debilitating, I wake up dizzy and stay that way all day. Then nothing for weeks even a full month with no symptoms. I’m 39 and very active, I just completed a Spartan race and I’m in the best shape of my life. Vertigo is ruining my life!

    My brother is 71 years of age and has a terrible time with vertigo or Meniere’s disease. He takes something for nausea and motion sickness. The symptoms are worse at times than others and come and go. He goes to his family doctor and an ENT but still has problems.

  5. Harold says

    I have been getting dizzy spells off and on for a few months now. Got diagnosed with BPPV. They did not do a MRI or CT. But I have done your two tests. And I did them fine. I can walk with my eyes closed. But when my eyes are open I have to walk really slow so I don’t feel like I am falling.

  12. Becky Roe says

    I experienced vertigo a couple of days ago. My dog woke me up at about 6:00 am to go outside and do his business. When I got back in bed, the room started spinning. I felt like I needed to hold onto the bedclothes in order to keep myself from falling out of bed. When I did get up for the day a couple of hours later, I was slightly lightheaded, but it definitely was better than it had been. I made it through a busy day without any problems (just stumbled a couple of times). Then at approximately 10:00 PM, I stumbled and fell when getting off the couch. I made it to my bedroom by stumbling and holding on to the walls as I went. Like someone mentioned in an earlier post, you would have thought I was drunk, really really drunk. I tried to sit up after awhile in order to get out of my clothes and put on my nightgown. Just sitting up was impossible without extreme vertigo. My husband had to help me. The next day he took me to the ER. After a wide array of tests, I was told I had a stone in my middle ear which is causing the dizzyness. I’ve never heard of such a thing. A kidney stone yes, but never an ear stone. Don’t know how long it will last. I was given Meclizine and Zofran. Working pretty good so far, though I was quite tired today.

    I have vertigo…spinning. My doctor wants to operate. Is this wise?

  20. Tina says

    Have experienced vertigo on a few occasions in my life. It always comes on completely unexpectedly and seems very intense. This a.m., while still in bed, I began to feel dizzy. I opened my eyes and had the sensation that the room was spinning wildly. I still feel this sensation when I turn my head. Also experience what feels like Eustachian tube blockage, as if I have my finger in my ear blocking off sound, usually on the right side but sometimes on both sides. This has gone on for YEARS. In the past, I visited 3 different E.N.T.’s and had MRI, CT scan and sinus x-ray. They all sent me home with decongestants that didn’t alleviate the problem and caused me to lose my appetite and ability to sleep well. Would appreciate any help.
