It’s a horribly unsettling feeling when you get a bout of dizziness and it can make you feel very unsteady on your feet. Not only can you feel at risk of falling though, but it can also make you feel less trusting in your own body and less certain of your reality. You might wonder if the world really is moving and you might even second guess whether you’ve been drinking!
And this is actually exactly what happens in the body too. You see, your body will often associate a mixed signal from different senses as being a sign that you’ve been poisoned or you are very ill. Thus, it begins to want to purge the system and you can therefore start to feeling sick and nauseous and you might even be sick. This only adds insult to injury as the world spins and it’s just one more reason to deal with the problem as quickly as possible.
So what causes this dizziness? Where does it come from? Well, it can have a number of origins but generally this is to do with misinformation coming from one of your senses. Usually, our brain takes input from a number of different senses (sight, balance, touch) and uses this to get an idea of which way up you are. But if you feel like you’re moving one way due to the movement of fluids in your eat but you look like you’re stationary… that’s when you can start to feel funny. And this is precisely why you get travel sick on a boat!
But enough about the cause of dizziness… how do you go about curing it? In this post, we are going to examine some popular home remedies for dizziness that should offer immediate relief and that might even be able to form the backbone of a management plan.
Read on and let’s discover 19 different home remedies for dizziness…
1. Hold Onto Something
Sometimes the simple answers are the best. If you have ever had a little too much to drink on a night out and then felt the world spin around you, then you probably will have naturally reached for a steady surface. This helps to ground the body and brain and it tells you with certainty where ‘down’ is.
Of course holding onto something can also help to prevent you from falling. Just make sure that you aren’t likely to bang your head on it on the way down!
