Say It Ain't So, Not Vertigo!

I wish I could say it's not so, but I've been hit by vertigo!  

Yesterday was the worst (hence, no post), but today I am a bit better.  I credit the following protocol with my progress in battling this ailment … which I've had before.

(I am not a doctor or a trained professional, please consult a doctor or trained professional for medical care and treatment. I am only sharing what I chose to do after doing my own research.)

Before I did the following, I checked all by vitals to make sure those numbers were in the normal range for me.  They were, so I proceeded with the following ...


I rubbed basil essential oil on the area of the bone behind each ear.  I did this every 4 - 5 hours and drank lots and I do mean lots of water.  During the night I felt my ears start draining and this morning I am better enough that I can function.  I will continue with the same protocol today.

Do you have any tried and true methods for dealing with vertigo or fluid on the ears?

Our high temp yesterday was 61 degrees!

I hope you had a great day!  

(I'll be back later this evening with today's post!)

  1. Sorry. My hubby battles that. He uses med which doesn't help a lot. Nancy.

  3. I so sorry. I dealt with that for so many years and finally connected it to food intolerance. I am glad the basil is working. Praying for you.

    1. Thank you Lana, I'm not ruling out some food intolerance issues as I wasn't able to eat normally for me while away from home. It seems the older I get the more 'different eating' affects me.

  5. I have it more than I want to. I lay sideways on the bed with my neck and shoulders off the edge. Slowly turn your heard right to left, left to right a few time. Do this with your eyes closed , then slowly sit up in bed. slide over to edge of bed , feet on the floor. Slowly open your eyes, and stand up. My dr said, that it is the crystals of the inner ear that are out of place.

  6. Believe it or not my doctor of osteopathy who is very much into holistic healing says to hum...The vibration moves any blockages and helps get the fluid moving. So glad you're feeling better. I'll keep the oil of basil in mind as I have trouble with my left ear particularly...

  7. I have it slightly at the moment as the accompaniment to a long-lasting "bit of a cold". I get it when I lie down/get up or lean forward suddenly so it's probably connected to sinuses being affected with the cold. I must drink more . . .

    1. Bovey Belle, That's where I'm at today, when I lie down, get up or lean in any direction suddenly. I've had a bit of a cold, so that could be a contributing factor. Thanks for the info!

  8. Unfortunately, the only thing that seems to have held my vertigo at bay is taking a Diazide pill (water pill) which I get a prescription for. Before that I would take 2 Sudafed and/or a motion sickness pill and use Vertigo X oil (over the counter at Walgreen) and rub behind my ears, pray and go to sleep.

    1. Alison, oh my, you do have it bad! I'm so sorry! So far, I've been able to control mine with essential oils.
