, 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.

Ginger

feel lightheaded

Ginger is an excellent natural remedy 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.

Lemons

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.

Yogurt

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.

Honey

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!

Water

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.

If you noticed, our previous tips also centred around beverages; try crafting interesting drinks to meet your daily water intake!
