Dizziness is the sensation that you are spinning or that your surroundings
are spinning around you. Sometimes the sensation is mild and passes
quickly, but it can also be so intense or prolonged that you may lose your
balance and fall. Understandably, dizziness frequently produces nausea and
Dizziness is not a disease in itself. Like pain, it's a symptom of an
underlying problem, and any course of treatment for dizziness must begin
with an investigation into the possible causes. Because the body keeps its
balance through a complicated interplay of several organs, including the
ears, the eyes, the nerves, and the muscles, finding the source of
dizziness is not always easy.
Fortunately, dizziness often has its roots in a relatively minor cause.
We've all experi9enced a spinning sensation when standing up too quickly
after sitting or lying down for a long period of time; it may happen in
airplanes, where there's less oxygen than most of us are used to.
Occasional episodes of this kind are nothing to worry about. (If you
experience it frequently, however, see a doctor.) Dizziness may also be the
result of a fever, motion sickness, hyperventilation, a buildup of a wax in
the ear canal, or a reaction to alcohol or drugs - factors that are either
easily treated or temporary.
Sometimes, however, the underlying cause takes more effort to address. High
blood pressure, anxiety, arteriosclerosis, food allergies, anemia, low
blood sugar, hypothyroidism, and diabetes can all lead to dizziness. If
nausea, vomiting, and a loss of hearing accompany the dizziness, you may
have Meniere's disease, a disorder of the inner ear. In rare cases,
dizziness is a warning sign of neurological disease or brain cancer.
If you experience dizziness, first rule out the obvious causes: motion
sickness, fever and infection, and drug or alcohol use. In the case of
motion sickness or fever, the dizziness will pass when travel or the
illness ends. If your problem is related to alcohol or street drugs, stop
using them. For dizziness related to prescription medications, contact your
doctor about alternatives.
If you can't immediately determine the cause on your own, see your doctor.
He or she will take a thorough medical history to determine the most likely
causes and will probably run a battery of tests. As you and your doctor
search for the proper diagnosis, you can use the complementary therapies
described further on to relieve your symptoms and reduce your chances of
triggering an episode. In some cases, these therapies may resolve the

Dozens of disorders and conditions can cause dizziness. Following are some
of the most important.
- Returning to a standing position after a long period of sitting or lying
- Motion sickness

- A disorder of the inner ear

Nutritional deficiencies can cause dizziness, and they can also cause some
conditions that lead to dizziness. Eat meals that are based on a wide
variety of basic, whole foods that you have prepared yourself. Keep your
blood-sugar levels even by planning several small meals throughout the day,
rather than three large ones. If you're nauseated, you may find that this
strategy helps relieve your discomfort.
Some cases of dizziness have been linked to a deficiency of B vitamins, so
add brewer's yeast to your meals. Other good sources of B vitamins are
brown rice and leafy green vegetables. These vitamins will also help
Dizziness is sometimes caused by impaired circulation to the brain. Improve
your blood flow by adding garlic, onions, and cayenne to your meals.
Food to Avoid
A response to a food allergen can cause dizziness. Even if your symptoms
are not directly related to alcohol, avoid it. Alcohol can upset the inner
ear and can aggravate other conditions that cause dizziness.
Excess sodium seems to affect the inner ear. Restrict your intake by
avoiding processed, canned, or packaged foods, and don't use table salt to
season your meals.
Avoid candy, cakes, cookies, and other sweets. These products will cause
your blood-sugar levels to spike and then plummet, with dizziness as a

produces our sense of equilibrium. Avoid processed and junk food, along
with any food made with additives.
- When you feel dizzy, sit down and focus your gaze on a fixed object until
the sensation passes. This technique will shorten the duration of the
dizziness and reduce nausea. Obviously, it will also prevent you from
losing your balance and falling.
- Smoking inhibits circulation and can lead to dizziness. If you smoke,
quit. Even if you don't smoke, you must avoid exposure to smoky rooms or
- If you are prone to dizziness, avoid sudden changes in your posture. If
you've been lying down or sitting for a long time, don't jump to your feet.
Get up slowly.
