Home remedies for vertigo range from simple dietary changes to the addition of common natural supplements. Eliminating foods and additives that cause biofeedback in the body balances the body's system and naturally eliminates issues with vertigo. Likewise, supplements can treat the underlying cause of the issue.
What is Vertigo?
Vertigo, also known as Meniere's disease, is an issue within the inner ear that causes spontaneous episodes of the sensation of spinning. Additional symptoms of the condition include fluctuating hearing loss, tinnitus or ringing in the ear and a feeling of fullness or pressure in the ear. The disease typically affects just one ear.
While the cause of Meniere's is somewhat unclear, it appears to be linked to the abnormal volume or composition of fluid in the ear. Suggested causes of this condition include improper fluid drainage, an autoimmune response, allergies, viral infection, genetic predisposition, head or ear trauma and migraines.
Home Remedies for Meniere's Disease
No medical cure exists for vertigo; however, several natural remedies offer relief and appear to reverse the symptoms of the disease. Common treatments include colloidal silver, dietary changes and natural supplements such as gingko biloba. When used over time these treatments eliminate symptoms and effectively manage the condition.
Colloidal silver is a natural substance with effective antimicrobial properties. When dropped in the ear, colloidal silver cleanses the ear and canal. This cleansing functions to destroy bacteria, fungi and viruses that may be causing vertigo symptoms.
Several of the suggested causes of the disease include allergies and aversion to certain food additives. Changing the diet to eliminate aspartame, MSG, cysteine and other food irritants can eliminate the root cause of the disorder and prevent further progression of the disorder.
Gingko biloba is rich in flavonoids and terpenoids, which serve as antioxidants that protect the cells. Additionally, gingko aids in circulation and the flow of blood and other bodily fluids. As such, gingko balances the imbalance of fluid in the ear and naturally treats the condition.
While Meniere's disease is somewhat misunderstood, natural treatments including dietary changes and supplement additions can eliminate vertigo and the other associated symptoms of the condition. Using colloidal silver, eliminating food toxins and taking gingko biloba is an effective treatment regimen for eliminating vertigo.
[SIDE EFFECTS] I have had acid reflux for several years now. I was on a prescription for Prilosec before it was OTC. Usually only took a pill when I felt the reflux coming on strong. Over time, it has gotten worse with many reflux attacks daily. Two months ago, I started taking Prilosec OTC every day to see if I could fend it off. It worked great and I rarely felt any reflux all day long. Then, I had three violent episodes of Vertigo....which is similar to being spun around while you are violently seasick and stays like that for about 5 hours. Turns out this is rare but known side-effect of Prilosec. Needless to say, I'm off it now. I am relying on Pepsid AC now which works great but only last for a few hours and gets expensive. I'm planning to try the ACV next.
