Natural remedies to combat motion sickness

Dizziness is a general term used to describe a wide variety of symptoms, from feeling cheerful to the feeling that everything around the person is spinning (vertigo). It is also one of the most common reasons to go to the doctor. Depending on the manifestation, it can be due to several factors. Vertigo, the most common type of dizziness, can be caused by inflammation of the inner ear, migraines, Meniere’s disease (accumulation of fluid in the inner ear), flying in airplanes, riding roller coasters, reading in moving cars, and sometimes for some more serious neurological problems, such as a stroke or multiple sclerosis. The feeling of joy can be caused by a sudden drop in blood pressure (such as suddenly getting up), inner ear problems, anxiety disorders (panic attack), or hyperventilation.

One of the best known natural remedies for common causes of vertigo is fresh ginger. Chinese sailors used to chew it for seasickness thousands of years ago. You can chew a slice or drink it as tea. Ginger tea has stimulating qualities and can help prevent a bout of dizziness. Cinnamon and mint can also be helpful.

Drinking celery juice will not only relieve dizziness, but it will also help lower blood pressure.

Ginkgo biloba helps with dizziness problems, as it stimulates blood circulation within the inner ear, correcting some inner ear problems.

Another good herb is feverfew. Not only has it been shown to help with migraines, but it can also reduce inflammation processes in the inner ear, while also improving blood circulation.

If dizziness is associated with panic, stress, or anxiety, you should try Rescue Remedy (an equal mix of Cherry Plum, Rock rose, Impatiens, Clematis, and Star of Bethlehem flower remedies).

And then there is the remedy that seems to cure everything, apple cider vinegar. Try mixing teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and honey in a glass of hot or cold water. Taking three times a day should considerably help this annoying occurrence.

One more way to treat dizziness is to add the juice of a lemon or lime to half a glass of sparkling water and take small sips.

An inner ear infection can be treated quite successfully with colloidal silver.

Sometimes stopping stimulants like coffee, cola, and alcohol can also help fight dizziness, as it helps balance blood pressure.

Another herbal remedy consists of a mixture of fenugreek and thyme. Although it is mainly used for respiratory and allergic problems, it is also quite effective in eliminating dizziness.
