Top 6 Natural Herbs to Address Vertigo Naturally
Vertigo or a sensation of feeling off-balance or spinning, if you must have ever experienced, is a condition, which makes it hard to do just about anything when it strikes, thus making it difficult to carry on with a normal life. As much simple it may sound, it is rather complex and characterized by a cluster of symptoms caused by other disorders. Hence, it is necessary to understand what it exactly is and how can we address it with natural herbs.
What is Vertigo?
There are various systems within the body that are at play to help us remain balanced; help to keep ourselves upright when moving and identify orientation with respect to our surroundings. Inner ears are a part of the vestibular system, which allows us to identify where we are in space. Vertigo or the sensation of spinning and dizziness develops when delicate parts of the ears no longer accurately send information to the brain about our position. This can be caused due to ear infections, injury to head, traveling, natural aging or due to some chronic diseases like cervical spondylosis and migraine. The symptoms include spinning, unsteadiness, nausea, vomiting, headache, excessive sweating, temporary hearing loss, or abnormal rapid eye movements (nystagmus). The symptoms can last a few minutes or take place at regular intervals. In case you or any of your family member experiences these symptoms, you can contact one of our doctors now for a free consultation!
