Hello Kanhaiya,

Vertigo is a sensation of feeling off-balance. Vertigo is often caused by an inner ear problem. It may also occur due to problems in some parts of the brain. Some cases of vertigo improve over time without treatment. However, some people have repeated episodes for many months or even years.
Depending on the cause of vertigo, there are things that you can do by yourself to get relief. 

  • Do some simple exercises or sukshma vyayama like rolling wrists and ankles clockwise as well as anti-clockwise. 
  • Sleep with your head slightly raised on two or more pillows.
  • Get up slowly when getting out of bed and sit on the edge of the bed for a minute or before standing. 
  • Avoid bending down for picking up items.
  • Avoid extending your neck like for reaching out to a high shelf.
  • Move your head carefully and slowly while doing daily activities.

Apart from these tips, it is important to follow the correct lifestyle and diet also.


  • Have only plant-based natural foods. 
  • Include sprouts, salads, beans, nuts, dry fruits in your diet. 
  • Have coconut water and fresh homemade fruit juices. 
  • Avoid dairy foods and also avoid animal products. 
  • Cook oil-free or use cold-pressed oil. 
  • Avoid tea and coffee. 
  • Include whole grains like barley, millets, oats in your diet. 
  • Avoid sugars, chocolates, carbonated drinks. 


Doing some physical activity is very important to be healthy.

  • Walk around 2,500 steps in the morning and the same in the evening. According to WHO, we should walk 8000 steps daily. Daily work may contribute to around 3000 steps and to complete them to 8000, walk 2,500 steps in the morning and evening. 
  • Perform yoga specially bhujanga asana, gomukha asana, trikona asana. 
  • Perform pranayam like kapalbhati, anulom-vilom. 


Sleep always plays a vital role in the overall health of the body and mind.

Take proper sleep of at least 7-8hours daily. 

Sleep early at night and also wake up early in the morning at around 6 am.

Read books before sleeping to improve the quality of sleep.
