I’m So Dizzy My Head Is Spinning

Dizziness

Seems like I’m hearing a lot of;  “I have really been getting dizzy lately.”

What is dizziness? Why does one feel dizzy?

Dizziness is a term that is often used to describe two different symptoms: lightheadedness and vertigo.

Light-headedness is a feeling like you might faint and occurs when your brain does not get enough blood.

This may occur if:

* You have a sudden drop in blood pressure

* Your body does not have enough water (is dehydrated) because of vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and other conditions

* You get up too quickly after sitting or lying down (this is more common in older people)

* You use tobacco, alcohol, or illegal drugs

Light-headedness may also occur if you have the flu, low blood sugar, a cold or allergies.

Vertigo is a feeling that you are spinning or moving, or that the the world is spinning around you.

Vertigo may be due to:

* Benign postional vertigo ~ a spinning feeling that occurs when you move your head

* Labyrinthitis ~ a viral infection of the inner ear that usually follows a cold or flu

* Meniere’s disease ~ a common inner ear problem

Other causes of lightheadedness or vertigo may include:

* Use of certain medications

* Stroke

* Multiple sclerosis

*Seizures

* Brain tumor

*Bleeding in the brain

If you have a cold, the flu, or other viral illness, drink plenty of fluids to prevent getting dehydrated.

I have been getting dizzy off and on since the first of the year. I never really paid too much attention to it because it wasn’t too bad, it wasn’t everyday, it would come and go.

I use my Young Living’s therapeutic-grade essential oils, take my supplements and drink Ningxia Red daily. I have not been sick in over two years.

Well…I swim every morning, four days a week at our local pool…The dizziness was hanging around more frequent and a friend said to me, “I bet it is from swimming.”

I really didn’t think about water in my ears. It didn’t feel like it so why think about it?

I begin applying and rotating Helichrysum with Purification, Thieves, Peppermint, Hyssop and Melrose oils for ear infections. I would apply the oils around the opening of the ear with my finger or with a cotton swab, along the back side of my ear and on the Vita Flex points for the ear on the feet. NEVER drop essential oils directly into the ear canal.

I can’t tell you the dizziness is completely gone, but I can definitely tell you it is far and few in between! (I’m wearing ear plugs when I swim now also).
