Vertigo is a sensation of dizziness, or that the world around you is spinning. It is caused by problems with the inner ear, a part of the body that helps us to balance.
The symptoms are often quite mild but they can also be severe enough to have a serious impact on somebody’s quality of life. The exact causes of vertigo are not always clearly known, although there are some medications that can help. These are not always effective, though, occasionally leaving patients struggling to get by from day to day.
Fortunately, there are some home remedies that are able to help to at least reduce the severity of the symptoms.
Home Remedy #1: Ginkgo Biloba
Ginkgo biloba is a type of tree, also known as the maidenhair tree. It is also often known as ginkgo or gingko. The tree is native to China and it has been found in fossil records dating back 270 million years. It has been cultivated by ancient civilizations both as a source of food and for its medicinal purposes.
Ginkgo biloba is thought to be able to help with a wide range of ailments and is one of the most popular herbal remedies available. Studies have shown it to be as effective as some prescription medications at dealing with vertigo.
