Vertigo Dizziness Fainting Herbal Natural Ayurvedic Medicine Melbourne Australia


Vertigo is an ailment where a person feels spinning or swaying, as if the objects around them are moving. It is further associated with sweating, vomiting, difficulty in walking, and nausea. It is the most common type of dizziness.



The reason behind the occurrence is due to the damage caused to the posterior semicircular canal of the inner ear. The other reason behind its occurrence is due to improper functioning of vestibular system. Dizziness occurs almost in 40% of the people while vertigo occurs about 7-10%.


Vertigo becomes a common ailment with age and its occurrence is higher in women when compared to men. In the developed world, around 3% of the emergency departments are the cases of vertigo.


Ayurveda, the ancient medical treatment originated in India, describes Vertigo as a cause due to the involvement of Pitta Dosha. Typically, the term used for vertigo in Ayurveda is “Brahma”.


The primary reason for Pitta Dosha to develop is due to excess consumption of oily spicy, fried, sour food items, taking more stress, and feeling annoyed at all times. These causes when combined with Vata Doshas begin to develop the spinning situation that a person feels.


Causes of Vertigo


The main reasons behind the occurrence of vertigo are as follows:



  • Disorder of digestion and development of gastrointestinal problems
  • Ailments related to the ear such as imbalance in the ear fluid
  • Impaired eyesight
  • Reduced functioning of the nervous system
  • Frequent attacks of a migraine
  • Improper blood circulation
  • Reduced sexual incompetence
  • Recurrent attacks of epilepsy
  • History of brain tumor
  • Lack of proper sleep
  • Fatigue


Regardless of the number of causes behind the occurrence of vertigo, the primary and prominent factors are the ailments related to the inner ear.


Natural Ayurvedic Remedies for Vertigo


The following are the most important natural remedies for vertigo in Ayurveda: 


1.Giloy: Guduchi, Giloy, or Tinospora Cordifolia, is a herbaceous vine indigenous to India, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar. The primary benefit of the herb is its ability to reduce mental stress, which in turn helps in fighting against vertigo. Additionally, the antioxidant properties help in boosting immunity.


A research paper by Upadhyay A K explains that Tinospora Cordifolia or Guduchi or Giloy is used in various Ayurvedic preparations to treat various ailments. It is used to enhance the immune system and increase the body’s resistance against infections. Giloy is known to improve learning and memory (Medhya Rasayana)  in Ayurveda. It is specially used in the treatment of Bhrama or Vertigo. The study was conducted in which children with a background disease were treated with Tinospora Cordifolia, which is known for its anti-stress activity. A substantial improvement in the patients with a moderate degree of behavioral disorders and mentally deficit was shown along with a significant increase in their IQ levels.


2.Vacha (Acorus calamus): Known to bring saneness to mind, Vacha or Calamus is a brain tonic that improves mental functionality. It penetrates the nervous system and deep into the brain tissues.

Various somatic symptoms like vertigo, dizziness, depression, disturbed sleep, irritability, hot flushes, etc. are associated with menopause.
