Any natural remedies for vertigo??? Friend not responding well to meclizine…?



    HI Blue

    Here are some ideas to help heal the issue. Be sure to drink up to a gallon of water a day as well.

    Vertigo is caused by disturbances within the equilibratory system – ears, inner ear canals, the cranial nerves servicing the ears, the associated brain parts, and the eyes. The system is disturbed due to mild stress on the cranial nerves, middle ear infections, shingles, inflammation of the ear canals, obstruction in an ear tube, a tumor, or a nerve inflammation. All of these factors must be screened for and addressed before lasting relief from vertigo symptoms can be achieved.

    Note: Vertigo can be an indication of a variety of other health problems. Prolonged or severe attacks of vertigo require immediate medical attention.


    Natural Cures

    Diet: Avoid caffeine, chocolates, salt, fried foods, nicotine, drugs, alcohol, and aspartame (NutraSweet(TM)).

    Flower Essences: Rescue Remedy® is useful for calming accompanying stress. Scleranthus can also be helpful.

    Herbs: Ginkgo biloba and ginger can be helpful. Take one 40 mg tablet of ginkgo or two capsules of ginger three times a day.

    Homeopathy: Useful homeopathic remedies include Gelsemium, Phosphorus, Cocculus, Aconite, Nat. mur., Sulfur, Silicea, Lycopodium, and Belladonna.

    Lifestyle: Stay still during vertigo attacks and avoid rapid body movements, especially of the head. Be sure to reduce stress, and get adequate sleep.

    Nutritional Supplementation: Recommended nutrients include Vitamin B complex, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6, vitamin C plus bioflavonoids and rutin, vitamin E, calcium, choline, and adrenal glandulars.

  • Lie down for a minute or two. This will allow more blood to flow to your brain. After lying down, sit up slowly and remain sitting for 1 to 2 minutes before slowly standing up.
    Rest. It is not unusual to develop lightheadedness during some viral illnesses, such as a cold or the flu. Resting will help prevent attacks of lightheadedness.
    Do not drive a motor vehicle, operate equipment, or climb on a ladder while you are dizzy.
    Do not use substances that can affect your circulation, including caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs.
    Do not get dehydrated, which can cause or increase lightheadedness, when you have an illness that causes diarrhea, vomiting, or a fever. Drink more fluids, especially water. Other fluids are also helpful, such as fruit juice mixed to half-strength with water, rehydration drinks, weak tea with sugar, clear broth, and gelatin dessert. If you have another medical condition, such as kidney disease or heart disease, that limits the amount of fluids you are allowed to have, do not drink more than this amount without first talking to your doctor.
    If you have vertigo:

    Do not lie flat on your back. Prop yourself up slightly to relieve the spinning sensation.
    Move slowly to avoid the risk of falling.
