People with vertigo often experience a loss of balance. It's not uncommon to feel nauseated from a feeling that things are spinning or moving around you, even when you're standing still or lying down. If you suffer from episodes of vertigo, there is relief to be found from natural home remedies.
Vertigo can be caused by a variety of factors such as prolonged bed rest or lack of sleep, too much caffeine or alcohol, dehydration and certain medicines. It can also be caused by more serious medical conditions like migraine headaches, diabetes, high cholesterol, anemia and thyroid disease. In addition to loss of balance and nausea, vertigo can cause blurred vision, weak limbs, difficulty in walking, hearing loss and pain in the ear. Vertigo can be helped by numerous home remedies, as well as adjustable beds.
A Good Night's Sleep
A good night's sleep has positive health effects on almost every part of your body. Sleep profoundly affects your physical energy and mental alertness which have a big impact on your daily life. Without a good night's sleep, your next day's performance at work or school will suffer, and you're much more likely to experience physical conditions like vertigo. Adjustable beds with various sleep positions make it easier to get into a comfortable position for a good night's sleep. If you suffer from vertigo, elevating the head of the bed instead of sleeping in a flat position will reduce symptoms of dizziness and nausea.
Easy Home Remedies
