Ginger is a traditional remedy for dizziness and the nausea that often accompanies it. It usually works within a few minutes. Numerous clinical studies have confirmed ginger's efficacy at counteracting dizziness. In fact, research has shown that ginger relieves dizziness more effectively than over-the-counter medications, such as Dramamine. Ginger is also extremely effective for relieving nausea.

Ginger remedy for dizziness

Method

  • Take 100 mg. of ginger extract in capsule form.
  • Chew a ¼ to ½ slice of ginger root.
  • Drink ginger tea. To make it, pour a cup of boiling water over ½ tsp. of ginger root.
  • Drink ginger ale.
  • Eat ginger candy. Ginger candy is especially useful if you are traveling, as it is small and portable.

Why It Works

Ginger improves circulation. Dizziness is often caused by reduced blood flow to the brain.

Precautions

Treating dizziness yourself makes sense if you know why you are dizzy (if, for example, you have an ear infection or flu, you are pregnant and experiencing morning sickness, you have motion sickness, your blood sugar is low because you have not eaten in several hours, your blood pressure is low because you stood up suddenly or have been on your feet a long time, or you are fatigued and/or dehydrated from overexertion). If you do not know why you are dizzy, and you are experiencing regular, frequent dizziness, you should see a doctor.
