This blog post is going to be personal for me (Yena). For the past 3-4 months now I have been experiencing vertigo and then residual dizziness when the vertigo is not active. If anyone out there has experienced vertigo you know how difficult it can be to function properly or let alone take care of yourself because of the extreme dizziness.
Experiencing vertigo feels like you are on a merry go round that does not stop AND you cannot get off the ride…sounds like a nightmare right? IT VERY MUCH IS.
Vertigo is caused by an underlying problem that should be addressed immediately with your doctor. This article is not to diagnose or cure any health related problem.
But these remedies may be able to bring you back to reality until you receive professional help.
I put ginger tea as the tea I recommend because this has been my go-to for the past few months. Within 30 minutes my residual dizziness goes away and stays away not only for a few hours but a day or two sometimes. Then, after a couple days I need to drink more ginger tea.
Drinking at least 1 cup a day not only keeps my dizziness away but also helps with my digestion and any nauseousness that may tag along with the dizziness.
Ginger root is known to alleviate nausea and to aid in digestion.
According to Vertigotreament.org, “Ginger is better than Dramamine at suppressing motion-induced nausea.”
One of the recipes that will save you steep time and money is to mix 1 cup of grated ginger and 1 cup of honey (or more depending on how sweet you like your tea) together. You can store this mixture in a mason jar for extra safe keeping and stash it in the fridge to keep it from molding.
This way whenever you have a dizzy spell coming on you can quickly heat up some water & put a heaping spoonful into your cup of hot water and your cup of ginger tea is ready to drink!
Ginger & Honey Recipe
- 1 cup of grated fresh ginger (make sure to peel your ginger with a potato peeler BEFORE you grate or blend it)
- 1 cup of honey (you can adjust this according to your taste if you do not like the bitter taste)
- Mason jar or some type of storage container for your mixture
- Heat up 1-2 cups of fresh water either on the stove or in an electric kettle.
- Then, put a tablespoon or more of the ginger honey mix into a clean cup. Wait for the water to heat up and pour it over the mixture. I like to wait for 5 minutes to make sure all of the ginger goodness has time to brought out.
Store the mixture in the fridge to prevent mold from forming. This will save you a lot of time & money whenever you need your ginger fix!
If you find it is too bitter or strong add more honey or whatever sweetener you have on hand. And if you enjoy milk tea try adding soy milk to give it a creamy sweet taste. In my opinion, adding soy milk makes the tea tastes like Fruit Loops!
WARNING: I do want to warn you that this process can be long because you have to hand grate 1 cup of whole ginger. It may sound easy but if you go at it until you get 1 cup it may leave your hands & shoulders hurting like it did mine. >.<
To make the grating process easier try using a blender to save your hands & shoulders. If hand grating does not sound like something you are up for please feel free to use tea bags instead for easier use. 🙂
This method works for me but it may not work for you. Every body is beautifully unique and different!
If vertigo is running your life please speak with your doctor and get to the root of the problem.
Take your life back with this remedy and enjoy the moment! 😀
