Dizziness (cont.)

What are home remedies for dizziness?

Dizziness may be a symptom of something dangerous and should always be discussed with a health care professional.

At home, it is recommended for the patient to do the following some home remedies for mild cases of dizziness include:

  • Get plenty to drink, have regular meals, and get plenty of rest.
  • Stand up slowly, as this may help dizziness associated with position changes.
  • Reassurance can help an anxious person who feels dizzy.
  • Make your home safe for a chronically dizzy person.
    • Banisters, a walker or cane, and tub mats are safety measures that may help avoid injury to the patient.
  • Secure rugs and carpeting to avoid falls.
    • A doctor can recommend resources for a professional home-safety consultant visit.
