In Ayurveda vertigo and “dizziness” are disorders related to an excess of the energy field Vata Dosha (Air), with a flow from the bottom up rather than the natural one from top to bottom. This excess of Vata accumulates in the ears and alters the fluid pressure of the head causing that feeling of upset, unsteadiness, dizziness, drowsiness.
To reduce the Vata Dosha we first of all recommend to balance the colon, the main seat of Vata, through healthy eating using raw extra virgin olive oil and ghee (clarified butter), which warm the coldness and oil the dryness related to the excess of Air. In association with this we advise to:
- take tablets that rebalance Vata such as the tablets Gam Virya® and Grahah Virya®;
- to oil the whole body, especially the abdomen and navel, with Jitaphala Virya® and to instill 2 or 3 drops of warm ghee in the ear.
- To use an additional aid to bring down the Vata by taking foot baths with the powder of plants Prativatam Virya®.
