Effective ways to cure vertigo naturally




Ever feel like the world around you was suddenly spinning, that you couldn’t manage to balance yourself or that you had unexplained ringing in your ears along with changes in your eyesight? If so, you might have experienced vertigo, a symptom that results from various types of “balance disorders,” usually caused by abnormal changes in the inner ears.

Vertigo is not actually a disorder or medical condition — rather it’s the cluster of symptoms caused by other disorders, and chances are you or someone you know has experienced it. In fact, research shows that nearly 40 percent of all people over the age of 40 will experience vertigo at least once in their lifetimes. 

If all of this sounds familiar to you, you’re probably wondering how to get rid of vertigo. Treating vertigo involves repairing the inner ear by identifying the damage’s underlying cause, plus preventing it from occurring again by making certain lifestyle changes.

What Is Vertigo?

There have been over a dozen different disorders identified that cause balance dysfunctions. Balance is defined as “the ability to maintain the body’s center of mass over its base of support.” Normally, various systems within the body are at play to help us remain balanced, keep ourselves upright when moving and identify orientation with respect to our surroundings.

Our ability to stay balanced is maintained by several systems, including: the sensorimotor control system (which controls our senses, such as our sight and hearing), the proprioception system (responsible for touch) and the vestibular system (helps us move without falling over). The inner ears obviously help us see, but they’re also an important part of the vestibular system, which allows us to identify where we are in space.

Vertigo develops when delicate parts of the ears no longer accurately send information to the brain about your position. This can occur for various reasons, including ear infections, a blow to the head, injuries, inflammation or simply aging. The good news is I have some secrets on how to get rid of vertigo.

How to Get Rid of Vertigo

1. Physical Therapy

For people who experience recurring vertigo, one type of helpful treatment is vestibular rehabilitation, a form of physical therapy that addresses the vestibular organs. The vestibular system constantly sends information to the brain in the form of nerve impulses from special nerve endings called sensory receptors, so therapy can retrain these organs to work with our other senses to re-establish a sense of balance. Vestibular rehab can help promote central nervous system compensation for inner-ear problems causing loss of balance.

Inactivity has also been linked to worsened vertigo, so additionally; physical therapy treatments work on increasing strength, range of motion, flexibility and movement, while preventing muscle fatigue and soreness. A vestibular rehab program might include various exercises for: building better hand-eye coordination, improving balance, strengthening joints and muscles, and improving fitness and endurance. These exercises can also help ease pain and allow you to rest better if you usually find you can’t sleep comfortably.

2. Head Maneuvers (“Canalith Repositioning Procedure,” or CRP)

Certain types of exercises and head adjustments can help move ear rocks (calcium deposits) out of the area in the ears where they cause problems. This technique is recommended by the American Academy of Neurology, which offers a series of specific head and body movements for clearing the canals of the inner ear chambers. CRP is very effective with an approximate cure rate of 80 percent for people who suffer from BPPV-type vertigo. It’s also usually helpful for preventing vertigo from reoccurring. 

How does it work exactly? When the head moves a certain way, the canaliths within the canals travel back to their correct location in the utricle, where they usually dissolve, break up and stop causing dizziness. The canalith repositioning procedures usually involve holding four positions for about 30 to 45 seconds each or as long as symptoms remain. Then you hold your head in a fixed position for about 20 seconds after symptoms go away.

The procedures can be done in a doctor’s office quickly and painlessly. If it’s your first time dealing with vertigo and trying head maneuvers to resolve your symptoms, it’s a good idea to meet with a doctor who can show you how to properly perform them.

 Home Remedies for Vertigo

Reduce Stress

Stress and inflammation both seem to raise the risks for vertigo. Stress is capable of reducing immunity, making it more likely that you’ll experience ear infections, swelling and other problems related to the vestibular system. The more stressed you are, the less likely you are to exercise regularly and get good sleep — both of which you really need if you’re prone to developing vertigo! That’s why chronic stress is so dangerous.

Try natural stress relievers like exercising, yoga, meditation, taking warm baths, using essential oils and spending more time outdoors.


Prepare a lemon beverage. Take a glass full of lukewarm water, add black pepper, a pinch of salt and squeeze half lemon in it. Mix well and drink it. Else, sprinkle lemon peel in your salad. Lemon is a natural remedy for vertigo.

Water and Juices

Keep your body hydrated. You should drink at least 10 glasses of water on a daily basis. Drink fresh and organic juices as they are rich in fibers.


Grab some fresh and ripe strawberries and mash them in fresh yogurt. Have it. This is a very quick, healthy and easy homemade remedy for those, who are suffering from vertigo.


Drink ginger tea or eat a piece of raw ginger. This will help to control nausea, associated with vertigo.


Basil is a herbal remedy for vertigo. You can either chew basil leaves or add them in your tea.

Almond Milk

Almond contains 26% carbohydrates, vitamin E, vitamin B, and fibers. Take some almonds and soak them in water, overnight. Now, make a fine paste and mix this almond paste in a glass of lukewarm milk. Drink it. Almond milk will help to cure vertigo.
