Feeling dizzy?
Tuesday, June 12, 2007

Most of us, if not all of us, already experienced being dizzy at one point in our lives. Most of the time,what we do is to keep still and lie down with our eyes close. Though avoidance of any movement lessens or spares us with the symptom, this also causes us to miss the chance for cure in the natural way. This means that by not controlling our movement, by just doing what we regularly do everyday, may hasten our trip towards cure.

Dizziness is a very diverse symptom. It can be a symptom of something mild or it can be of something grave. At any rate, dizziness should be given importance and should never be ignored. Whenever dizziness is felt, consult to a physician is needed.

Here are some exercises that you can do when suffering from dizziness. I took it from a flyer given by Solvay Pharma Philippines. Consult first your doctor before performing any of the following:

I. On a bed without a pillow:
1. Sit upright on the bed with your feet also in the bed and look forwards.
2. From position 1, lay back briskly.
3. Look upwards while on your back.
4. Turn head and body briskly to your left side.
5. While on position 4 look forwards.
6. Turn head and body to your right side.
7. While on position 6 look forwards.
8. Turn briskly and lie on your back.
Stay for 30 seconds to 1 minute in each position.

II. Standing:
1. Stand upright and look forwards.
2. Spin once to the left with your left heel.
3. Stand upright and look forwards.
4. Spin once to the right with your right foot.

The above exercises can be performed at least once a day.

    thanks, i will show this to my eldest daughter. whenever she has attacks related to her acid reflux problems, she has a tendency to feel dizzy. what is important, one of her doctors told her, is to see to it that she immediately sits down, and be careful that she does not hit her head elsewhere.
