In fact, there are plenty of great natural cures and treatments for dizziness.

If your bouts of dizziness are rather tame and sporadic then some of these home remedies may work wonders. Here are a few of the most common and effective methods of treating dizziness fast and naturally.
Before we begin, here's an outstanding interview I've done with a professional chiropractor (and beautiful human being) about dizziness, vertigo, pressure in the head. How all of that originates in our bodies and what we can do in our daily lives to change the direction towards balanced wellbeing.
Dizziness is, unfortunately, something we have all had to deal with in our lives. Since dizziness is not a disease that can be cured, but rather a symptom of other, perhaps more serious conditions, such as hypoglycemia, heart disease, inner ear infection or hearing loss, poor blood circulation, high blood pressure, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (or BPPV), heat stroke, loss of balance, and migraine-associated dizziness it makes treating the condition somewhat difficult.
This is due to the fact that dizziness must first be connected to a specific condition and then treated as such.
Since this can be a multitude of things, finding the right medication can be difficult.
Of course, it is not to say that treating dizziness is impossible. In fact, there are plenty of great natural cures and treatments for dizziness. Obviously, if you experience intense and prolonged bouts of dizziness it’s certainly in your best interest to get those issues diagnosed by a doctor.
If your bouts of dizziness are rather tame and sporadic then some of these home remedies may work wonders. Here are a few of the most common and effective methods of treating dizziness fast and naturally.
Starting our natural remedy for dizziness list is perhaps the easiest and most common way of treating dizziness.
Though it cannot quite be termed a herbal remedy, simply eating and drinking healthily means you will get the correct balance of required vitamins and minerals in your diet. Anyone suffering from a bout of dizziness may have just not been eating and drinking enough food and water that day.
Dehydration is one of the most common causes of dizziness. Failing to supply your body with enough water throughout the day can result in dizzy spells. Thankfully, this can be treated rather easily in less serious cases by simply drinking a couple glasses of water. Doctors recommend that you drink at least 64 ounces of water a day. This may seem like a lot but doctors agree that if you are even to the point of feeling thirsty, your body is already dehydrated.
The lack of proper nutrition due to a lack of eating can also cause dizziness. In order to prevent and treat this condition, you simply need to make sure you are eating enough throughout the day.
The type of food you eat will also have a considerable effect on preventing and treating dizziness.
Foods that are high in carbohydrates and sugars can dispel the effects of dizziness for those suffering from low blood sugar. Eating bananas or chocolate bars are good for this purpose.
Also, eating fruits that have high water content can help cure dizziness and the same goes for yogurt and nuts, as well.
There are some great exercises you can do in your home is another remedy for dizziness.
Some of the more simple exercises include moving your eyes in all directions, stretching the neck both clockwise and counter-clockwise, and blinking your eyes rapidly while standing and staring at a fixed point.
Other exercises that will help counter feeling light-headed include walking with your eyes open and closed and walking while staring at a fixed point and going up a steep incline.
These may sound a bit strange, but they are trusted and proven ways to strengthen the nerves that can cause dizziness.
These exercises should be done two to three times a week in order for them to have the optimal effect.
Ginger is a great and time-tested way of naturally curing bouts of dizziness. The reason for this is that ginger helps promote blood flow to the brain, as well as other parts of the body.
People will simply chew on a small piece of ginger root or enjoy sucking on a piece of ginger candy to treat their dizziness. You can also drink some ginger ale, or tea, a couple of times a day to both treat and prevent dizzy spells.
The same can be said for vitamin supplements that include ginger.
Using lemons to treat and cure dizziness is another great natural way to counteract this condition. Lemons are very high in vitamin C which helps to boost your immune system. Lemons also have other great nutrients that that help refresh and energize the body.
Some rather simple recipes used to treat dizziness with lemons are to put half a cup of fresh lemon juice in a glass with water and then mix it with a couple teaspoons of sugar and drink. If this is not to your liking or doesn’t work you can try mixing a tablespoon of lemon juice with water and then add just a pinch of black pepper powder and salt. Drinking this concoction two to three times a day can work wonders in treating dizziness.
Honey is another great natural home remedy ingredient that can be used to counteract the effects of dizziness. It’s able to accomplish this because honey has natural sugars in it that can energize the body and prevent it from suffering the dizzying effects of low blood sugar.
One proven method of ingesting honey in order to prevent and treat dizziness are to mix a teaspoon of honey with a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and eat it a couple times a day. You can also mix a couple teaspoons of honey with a couple teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and throw it in a glass of water and drink.
For a more immediate response to dizziness simply mix a tablespoon of both honey and lemon juice in a glass of warm water and drink it.
Receiving a quality massage is another great and natural way to treat the effects of dizziness.
Massages will help soothe and release built up stress in muscles and nerves. It will also significantly increase blood flow to the entire body and brain.
Getting a massage with some sort of lavender oil is also a great way to get rid of dizziness.
Hi! I'm the creator of this website. It's the project of my heart. I intend to share what I've learned to bring my own life to balance. I've been educating myself for the past several years in order to understand a bigger picture with research, interviews, and many self-experiments. Dizziness is only a surface symptom of a very complex ocean of underlying imbalances. Causes are always deeply interconnected so we cannot change anything while we view the problem separate from our lifestyle, emotional intelligence, and capacity to remain mentally stable. Yes, we must address physical issue as soon as possible but it is immensely unwise to leave it there. I know that this idea of holistic and inclusive approach might seem incomprehensible for many. But I believe that until we realize and accept that every part of our life is connected to every other part, and to all, we will be chasing our own tail of treating the surface.
