Dizziness is a scary thing because it makes it seem as though that the world around you is spinning and you are about to fall. Actually, you may really fall and risk having sprains, fractures, dislocations or concussions. Definitely, it is a good idea for you to sit or lie down if you are feeling dizzy to avoid falling accidentally.
But what if there are some tasks that you need to carry out? Staying plopped in a chair or stretched out in bed isn’t always the most practical thing to do when you are feeling dizzy.
Fortunately, there are some home remedies available for it, and the best ones come from Ayurvedic healing, which is something that’s invented in India at least 5,000 years ago. Yup, it’s still very much popular these days — when something is really old and everyone today is still raving about it, then it can amaze without a doubt.
Let’s take a look at some of the best Ayurvedic ways of getting relief from dizziness:
It’s common knowledge that ginger tea is an excellent all-natural remedy for indigestion and nausea. Did you know that you may also count on this herbal beverage whenever you are feeling dizzy? Just peel a small piece of fresh ginger root, grate it, and let it steep in a cup of boiling water for several minutes. Strain and consume. If preparing ginger tea isn’t applicable, then suck on a small piece of fresh ginger root.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Combine 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (raw unfiltered and organic is the best for the job) and 2 teaspoons of honey in a glass of water. Stir very well and consume with a straw to keep your teeth from being eroded. Do this Ayurvedic remedy for dizziness up to three times a day for relief.
As soon as you feel like a bout of dizziness is about to strike, get a glass of warm water. Add a teaspoon of freshly-squeezed lemon juice, a pinch of salt and a pinch of ground black pepper. Stir and consume.
In Ayurvedic healing, gooseberry or amla is a staple. If you are constantly bugged by dizziness, it’s something that you may count on — you can easily get it in powder form at an Asian grocer or herbal store in your area. To employ gooseberry for dizziness, you have to soak a teaspoon of it plus coriander in a glass of water the night before. In the morning, strain and consume. Feel free to add a little honey to improve its taste.
With the help of a spice or coffee grinder, pulverize a few almonds until you come up with a teaspoon of it. Dissolve it in a glass of water and consume right away to attain relief from dizziness. But there is a much simpler alternative to this: get your hands on a bottle of 100 percent pure almond milk and drink it regularly.
Supplementing with gingko biloba can be very beneficial for individuals who are often bugged by dizziness. This herbal remedy for dizziness works by improving the flow of blood to the brain, thus supplying the gray matter with all the nutrients and oxygen it needs. Ginkgo biloba is also good for headaches.
JUST A FEW WORDS OF CAUTION: The above are proven safe and effective Ayurvedic remedies for dizziness. If the problem refuses to go away a few days of trying to deal with it naturally or it seems to worsen, discontinue doing any Ayurvedic remedy (or any other traditional form of healing) for it and consult a doctor. It can be due to an underlying problem that needs to be diagnosed and treated by a specialist right away to avoid complications.
