If you or someone you know suffers from frequent bouts of dizziness, you have probably been desperate to find relief. Although most of us suffer from dizziness at one time or another, chronic dizziness is not normal.  Most people don’t realize that dizziness itself is not a disease, but rather a symptom of some other condition such as hypoglycemia, anemia, ear infections, migraines, anxiety disorders, neurological problems, low blood pressure, heart disease, or allergies.

Sometimes dizziness is simply due to simple things such as motion sickness, stress, hormonal changes, dehydration, or a side effect from medications.

Dizziness sometimes causes chest pain, weakness, vomiting, nausea, paleness of the skin, even a loss of consciousness.

If your doctor has cleared you from having any type of serious medical condition and your dizzy spells are not very frequent, try one of these 12 natural remedies to help take care of this problem.

If you continue to have dizzy spells, talk to your doctor again.


1. Feverfew

Although most people use this to stop a fever, this herb is also good for combatting feelings of dizziness. It can also help relieve feelings of nausea, vomiting, and headaches that often come with a dizzy spell. This herb improves the circulation of blood, which also helps to put an end to dizzy spells. When you have a dizzy spell, you can make a tea using 1 teaspoon of feverfew leaves (add some mint leaves also if you like) added to one cup of boiling water. Allow to steep for 15 minutes, strain, and then drink. Try drinking the tea twice each day for a few weeks to see if this relieves your dizzy spells.


2.  Deep Breathing

This is perhaps one of the simplest and easiest way to deal with dizzy spells. This provides you with adequate oxygen to the brain, which should relax the nervous system and reduce feelings of dizziness. Sit or lie down comfortably, and block one nostril with your finger. Now fill your belly with air and hold your breath for a count of 2, then exhale slowly. Repeat by closing off the other nostril. Do this 10 times, 5 sides each nostril, or until your dizziness passes. Be sure to get up slowly to avoid becoming dizzy once more.


3. Mustard and Salt

This is an old home remedy that helps dizziness by improving blood circulation. Mix one teaspoon each of mustard, salt, vinegar, and pepper. Mix these ingredients in one glass of water and drink this each day to prevent dizziness and to stop an attack if it happens.
