Natural remedies for dizziness and balance problems

Many people suffer from dizzines and balance problems . Common symptoms include:

  • Vertigo – which is the feeling that you or the things around you are spinning
  • Inner ear problems
  • Sudden dizziness or unsteadiness

Here are few balance disorders that you should be aware of:

  • Ménière’s disease –  is caused by changes in fluid volumes in the inner ear. This is a balance disorder that causes a person to experience vertigo, hearing loss that comes and goes, tinnitus (a ringing or roaring in the ears), and a feeling of fullness in the ear.  To help reduce its dizzying effects by lowering the amount of sodium in their diets. Limit alcohol and caffeine.
  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) – Small calcium particles in the inner ear become displaced and hit the inner ear balance sensors, causing dizziness. In BPPV, you experience a brief, intense feeling of vertigo or sudden dizziness when you change the position of your head, such as when rolling over to the left or right, upon getting out of bed, or when looking for an object on a high or low shelf.  Treatment, a doctor or specialist can carefully move the head and torso to dislodge these particles.
  • Labyrinthitis – Inflammation of the vestibular system, the part of the inner ear responsible for balance. To maintain your body’s position, the labyrinth interacts with other systems in the body, such as the eyes, bones and joints. The cause is usually a viral infection, or less often, a bacterial infection.
