Natural Remedies for Vertigo

  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Vitamin D
    Vertigo can occur when calcium crystals in your inner ear become dislodged. Remarkably, vitamin D receptors dock themselves at calcium channel transport systems inside the ear which help regulate calcium balance, thus vitamin D diminishes symptoms of vertigo. The obvious answer to getting ample amounts of this vitamin is to just stop being lazy and get your ass outside. But after growing up in Minnesota and spending a portion of my life in Alaska, I understand how difficult it can be to want to wander out into the frigid cold for the few hours that the sun barely manages to peak above the horizon. So, if thats you, or you just need more D… heres a link to a concentrated liquid form for fast absorption.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey
    2 parts honey to 1 part apple cider vinegar is known to help minimize the affects of vertigo. Most grandmothers will tell you that these two ingredients can individually cure pretty much everything so its no surprise that combining the two is just pure magic. In less grandma-like terms, these two compounds are both thought to relieve blood flow to the brain. I refuse to post a link for where to find this. Go to the grocery store.

  • Ginger tea- Steeping ginger root in boiling water for 5 minutes and drinking that twice a day can help relieve vertigo symptoms. Bitter much? Just double down on that honey! Leave the apple cider vinegar out of it though. Again, the grocery store!
