Dizziness

What is Dizziness?
Dizziness, the light-headedness that is often accompanied by a sense of losing one’s balance, is often the symptom of a larger underlying condition. In other words, if a person is dizzy because they got up too quickly from a sitting or inclined position, then they are dizzy because of a lack of blood flow to the brain, which does not require any treatment. Other bouts of dizziness, however, are caused by more serious conditions, such as anemia, high or low blood pressure, inner ear infections, and even cancerous growths. In such cases, the treatment focuses less on stopping the dizziness and more on treating the condition that is causing it.

How can I treat Dizziness?
Traditional Chinese medicine responds to chronic dizziness as an indication of a greater problem. Regardless of the cause for dizziness, it is important to eat a balanced diet that is filled with foods rich in nutrients, including whole grains, green leafy vegetables, apples, oranges, and almonds. Because dizziness is often accompanied by dehydration, it is also important to drink plenty of water at room temperature. Other remedies include using lavender and sandalwood essential oils as aromatherapy and taking gentle walks to stimulate blood flow.

What should I avoid in my lifestyle for Dizziness?
Dizziness is often the result of a buildup of mucous, and therefore, spicy foods, heavy starchy foods, dairy products, sugar, wheat, and other substances that cause mucous should be avoided. Caffeine, alcohol, salt, and rigorous exercise should be avoided as well.
