Even if it lasts for a few seconds – do not underestimate the vertigo
Vertigo is not a disease, but it indicates that a health problem has developed in the organism that may be related to different organs and systems. Therefore, even with upon the occurrence of a slight episode of vertigo, you should seek medical help who will determine the cause.
Otherwise, if we let the disease develop, in addition to other complications, it can exacerbate concomitant vertigo and prolong its duration, resulting in loss of consciousness.
If it is accompanied by fatigue, tinnitus, headache, sweating, nausea that may cause vomiting, the vertigo may be due to increased blood pressure. Low blood pressure can also lead to:
- Tinnitus, blurred vision
- loss of concentration and balance
Such symptoms, however, can also occur due to low blood sugar. Moreover, vertigo may be caused by:
- Neurological or psychiatric disease
- Diseases of the blood and lungs
- Liver disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Brain tumor and so on.
Changes in the cervical vertebrae, for example, can lead to insufficient blood supply of the brain and inner ear, resulting in vertigo, impaired balance and often to falling. The damages and diseases leading to vertigo can be genetic anomalies, degenerative changes, head trauma, bacterial or viral infections.
If the vertigo is intense, the patient should be lying low, as the attempts for moving alone can make the situation worse, and there is a risk of falling and serious injuries, because in these situations he/she do not have full control over the body and its natural reactions are out of control.
The clothes should be loose so the patient can breathe freely and deeply, and if you wash the face with cold water this will be beneficial. It is also useful to consume yoghurt with fruits or buttermilk with some added salt.
Treatment with the help of Ayurveda
Vertigo is often accompanied by nausea. According to Ayurveda, this is a sign that there are imbalances in Vata and Pitta – two of the three energies, as the third one is Kapha.
If the balance is in equilibrium all processes in the organism run smoothly and in the best way for our organism. But if the balance is disturbed it causes deviations in the functions of various organs and systems, which in turn causes diseases. There are suitable foods for each Dosha that can soothe it and restore the balance. Since the disturbances are combined the Ayurveda specialist will decide the exact diet and overall treatment.
In general, however, the recommended diet is light but nutritious and balanced, without much spices. Green leafy vegetables and fruits are recommended, as the patients must avoid the excessive salt intake and they should eat slowly. Meditation, yoga practice and selected asanas are also important part of the healing process. Other important factor in this process is the cleansing of toxins, which is performed with the help of various healing remedies that include herbs and oils, and the procedures include pouring, sauna, rubbing, massages, and so on.
You can use crushed coriander seeds to treat vertigo, as you need a tablespoon poured with hot water that you have to leave for the night. In the morning you should strain the mixture, put some sweetener and consume in the morning for a few days. You can also use sesame oil – two spoons – mix it with half a spoon of cardamom and half a spoon of cinnamon. Use this mixture to make compresses.
Another remedy that you can use is a mixture of 8 almond nuts and pumpkin seeds, poppy seeds –a spoon and 3 spoons of wheat. Pour it with hot water and leave it for the night. In the morning the mixture should be made on paste. Half a spoon of carnation should be fried in ghee – 2 spoons, then added in the mixture, milk is added, then the mixture is boiled. You can add some sweetener. The drink should be consumed for several days.
