Basil leaves can be chewed and added to tea to receive it’s healing properties. You can also choose to inhale the steam released by basil once it’s boiled, to receive its benefits.

2. Indian Gooseberry

Indian Gooseberry is one of the most renowned natural remedies for vertigo symptoms. It’s rich in vitamins A and C, where it promotes a healthy immune system; very useful for dizziness that’s triggered by sinus conditions. This can be taken as a powder and mixed into a glass of water.

3. Cayenne Pepper

Vertigo can be caused by poor circulation and blood conditions such as anaemia. If not enough blood is getting to the inner ear or brain, it can result with lightheadedness and nausea. Cayenne pepper has many health properties, in particular it is an effective measure for improving circulation throughout the body. It is one of the natural remedies for vertigo symptoms which is usually combined with herbal remedies for detoxing, as it causes the body to release toxins through sweating.

4. Butcher’s Broom

Low blood pressure can also cause vertigo. Butcher’s broom contains 2 natural chemicals known as ruscogenin and neoruscogenin which are used for improving vascular and inflammatory conditions. These 2 substances also tone and strengthen blood vessels, which can help with regulating normal blood pressure, reducing the occurrence of vertigo.

5. Cardamom

Cardamom is a spice that comes from the ginger family, and as you may already know, ginger is definitely up there when it comes to natural remedies for treating vertigo.  As well as having anti-carcinogenic properties and acting as an anti-depressant, this spice also has the power to relieve sensations of vertigo. The best way to use cardamom is to warm up 2 tsp of sesame oil and mix it together with 1.5 tsp of cardamom. Now gently massage this oil on your head and leave it for a couple of hours, where you can rinse it off after use. This can be done daily until vertigo symptoms start to improve.

6. Coriander Seeds

This is another popular option for treating vertigo. Your body can elicit an immune response when it comes to allergies, where a compound called histamine can be released within the body. One of the allergic reactions that histamine can produce is vertigo. However a useful antioxidant known as quercetin (which you can also find in apples and onions) helps with preventing this immune response, leading to also stopping the occurrence of vertigo. You can add coriander seeds to your diet by soaking a tablespoon of them in a glass of water and leaving it overnight. From there you can strain the water and drink the solution.

In conclusion, all 6 methods can be used as natural remedies for vertigo symptoms, helping to alleviate dizziness and nausea.
