Dizziness

General characteristics

General characteristics

Dizziness is the sensation of spinning or whirling and feeling unbalanced, like you may fall over.
Dizziness is often experienced just before fainting and can just come and go seemingly randomly but it can also be a symptom of a number of other conditions such as high and low blood pressure, other cardiovascular and circulatory diseases, low blood sugar, inner ear infection or disease, vertigo, travel sickness, emotional stress and anxiety, meniere's disease, nervous system problems, shallow breathing, pregnancy, excess caffeine, toxaemia from improper digestion, uncontrolled diabetes, liver and kidney failure, cigarettes and alcohol, trauma to the head, dehydration, heavy menstruation, anaemia, fatigue, colds and flu, migraine, food poisoning, antibiotics and other prescription medications and tumours.
It is important to try to determine and treat the cause in order to alleviate the dizziness.

Diet and lifestyle

Diet and lifestyle

Eat fresh organic whole foods for the highest nutrient content and avoid junk and processed foods.

Include plenty of fibre to prevent constipation and remedy any possible link with toxins accumulating in the digestive tract.

Eat foods high in B vitamins such as whole grains, dark green leaves, seeds (including aniseed) and nuts.

Avoid refined sugar and foods containing it.

Avoid caffeine and alcohol as these can deplete fluids in the body and cause an exaggeration of symptoms.

Drink enough water to ensure you are properly hydrated.
