Ayurvedic Approach to Alleviating Vertigo and Dizziness Symptoms

 

 

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. 

 

 

 

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.

 

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

 

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.

 

 

Natural Ayurvedic Remedies for Vertigo used Traditionally:

 

The following are the most important natural remedies  used traditionally 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 an ayurvedic brain tonic that improves mental functionality. It penetrates the nervous system and deep into the brain tissues. It eradicates the toxins from the mind and opens the nadis of the upper chakras. Best used for treating mental stress, dizziness, and vertigo.

 

 

3.Shankhpushpi (Convolvulus pluricaulis): Shankhpushpi is one of the best medicine in Ayurveda to treat memory and increase brainpower. It is further helpful in treating mental weakness, memory loss, and forgetfulness. It reduces anxiety and depression that support vertigo. Additionally, it acts an antioxidant, and cures mental fatigue, epilepsy, dementia and hypertension.

 

In a research paper by Anil Kumar Singh et al. a study of twenty patients with the menopausal syndrome was conducted. At menopause a woman starts losing her body strength. Various somatic symptoms like vertigo, dizziness, depression, disturbed sleep, irritability, hot flushes, etc. are associated with menopause. The study was to evaluate the role of psychic traits in etiopathogenesis. A compound made of various herbs like, “Shankhapushpi (Convolvulus pluricaulis), Mandukaparni (Centella Asiatica), Yashtimadhu (Glycyrrhiza glabra), Guduchi (Tinospora Cordifolia), Ashoka twak (Saraca asoka) all in equal quantity administered in the dose of 3 gm thrice a day for 3 weeks was given to these patients. The results showed a significant decrease in symptoms mentioned above.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • Dearest Dr Gurnam, thank you many times over for your treatment I feel very balanced and cured. You have been kind, compassionate and very knowledgeable in what you do. I highly recommend Dr Gurnam and his work in Ayurveda.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • I’m very happy with the treatment and medication given by Dr. Saini to heal De Quervain tensosynovitis. Pain was really too bad , I couldn’t stretch my thumb or move my wrist. On my third and final day of treatment I completely forgot I had an injury on my wrist because after the second treatment I had zero pain. Thank you so much Dr.Saini.


    Suni Koshy

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏
