What are the causes of dizziness?

sudden drop of blood pressure

To reduce dizziness, you must first know the cause of it.

Dizziness is commonly a symptom of another underlying cause or health conditions, such as:

  • low blood sugar

  • inner ear problems

  • hearing loss

  • low iron levels

  • BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo)

  • low blood pressure

  • anxiety disorders

It is important to see a doctor immediately to ensure that your dizziness or vertigo is not a symptom of a bigger problem, especially if you have repeated episodes of feeling dizzy.

The doctor will first ask you questions about your condition, and then you will need to be examined. This procedure will depend on the information provided, which includes:

  • Take your temperature

  • Examining your ear

  • Examining your eyes and their movements

  • Checking your pulse and blood pressure

  • Checking your balance and coordination

  • Look for any weakness in your arms, legs or face muscles

  • Tests which look for dizziness in certain positions or position changes

Once they have established a diagnosis, further tests would be carried out for confirmation, such as a hearing test, blood test, MRI or CT scan, specialist test for inner ear conditions, and heart tests.

Home Remedies for Dizziness

Sometimes, there may not be a clear reason why you feel dizzy [link to chronic subject dizziness article], or you may not feel well enough to reach a healthcare provider.

In that case, here are some home remedies to treat dizziness naturally and safely!

While they are not substitutes for treatment options or medical advice, these remedies may help you ease a sudden onset of dizziness long enough to see a professional.

Epley Manoeuvre

balance therapy

The Epley manoeuvre are a series of head position maneuvers that might help when you are feeling dizzy.

If your right ear is bothering you, you can start by sitting up on a bed.

Turn your head 45 degrees to the right and lay back quickly. Wait 30 seconds with your head on your pillow. Then, turn your head 45 degrees to the left from your neutral position. Wait 30 seconds before sitting up on your left side.

If you feel pain in your left side, go back and do the steps in the opposite order, starting with your head tilted 45 degrees to the left.


feel lightheaded

Ginger is an excellent natural cure for increasing your blood flow.

When you’re struck with dizzy spells, you can chew on a little fresh ginger or drink ginger tea several times a day.


feel faint

Lemon is high in vitamin C and can increase your immune system while maintaining your body’s energy.

Mix one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice with a pinch of ground black pepper in a cup of water. Add a little salt and drink three times daily until your dizziness improves.

Or you can add the juice from half a lemon to a cup of water with a bit of sugar (around two teaspoons). Drink daily.


low blood sugar

Yoghurt can boost your immune system, which is a good and tasty remedy for you to relieve dizziness.

Some suggest eating yoghurt daily, and you may add pumpkin seeds and cloves to improve your health further.


nervous system

Honey has a lot of natural sugar, which makes it a good home remedy for dizziness. It gives you more energy and stops your blood sugar from getting too low.

Honey is versatile, making it easy to incorporate into your daily life. Try swapping your sugar packet for a few tablespoons of honey.

Mix two tablespoons honey with 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and add to a glass of cool water. For best results, drink twice a day.

You can also mix it in with the aforementioned foods!


anti anxiety medications

You may experience dehydration if you’re overheated, aren’t drinking water, are sick or are taking certain medicines.

When there isn’t enough fluids in your body, your blood volume goes down. This lowers your blood pressure and keeps your brain from getting enough blood, which makes you feel dizzy.

Plain water is the best to keep yourself hydrated, but it might be a little boring sometimes.
