D0Terra Essential Oil Support For:
When you’re dizzy, you may feel lightheaded or lose your balance. If you feel that the room is spinning, you have vertigo.
Vertigo is a false sense of motion or that your surroundings are in motion that results in difficulty in maintain balance and even nausea. The body’s sense of balance comes from the vestibular organ in the inner ear. This is organ is connected to the brain via the vestibular nerve. Vertigo can originate from problems in either the inner ear or the brain.
Problems in the inner ear is called peripheral or vestibular vertigo. BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) is usually brief periods of intense dizziness triggered by some movement of the head. This temporary or transient peripheral vertigo can come from inflammation (bacterial or viral infection), chemical insults, or physical trauma.
Chronic vertigo is most commonly caused by BPPV. Less frequently other diseases including Meniere’s may be the cause. One theory for BPPV suggests it results from small crystals of calcium carbonate (ear rocks or otoconia) that normally occur but because of damage to the inner ear (injury, infection, aging) they are not properly reabsorbed into the system and this excess accumulation results in vertigo.
Problem within the balance center of the brain in known as central vertigo. This is typically a milder vertigo and may be accompanied by other symptoms such as double vision or slurred speech. Head trauma, neck injuries, severe migraines can cause central vertigo. Decreased blood flow to the brain (arteriosclerosis) can be another cause.
When you have severe vertigo, you may feel very nauseated or vomit. You may have trouble walking or standing, and you may lose your balance and fall.

My husband had chronic vertigo for about a year and a half off and on. It wasn’t totally debilitating but it was not a good situation either. The doctors couldn’t figure it out. He started taking the LLW, ginger, frankincense, lemon, On Guard, peppermint, Balance, DigestZen. The vertigo left immediately upon taking the oils. One time it started to come back but he had missed 3-4 days of the oils. When he began taking them again, immediately the vertigo was gone. His strongest feeling is that the ginger and LLW are the keys. He takes the other oils as well for other ailments. I only tell you about them because we just aren’t sure what exactly has done the trick. But this last week he really had a test to see if it was still there but hiding, it would have reemerged. He spent 3 hours on a ladder replacing fluorescent lights in a ceiling, one after another. He had a ten minute break. No sign of the vertigo.
His recommendation would be to take the LLW faithfully, and load up on ginger. Obviously the Balance would make sense as well. I would put the ginger around the ear externally, on feet, on reflex points – feet, hands, ears, take internally, and diffuse aromatically.
Occasionally I experience vertigo, I don’t know what brings it on, other than stress or lack of sleep, as sometimes I miss out on many hours of sleep. It is like a migraine without the headache pain. I get nauseated, everything around me spins, it usually last for 3-4 hours, sleep in a dark room with NO movement helps. This last time is was worse than in the past, it lasted for 2-3 days, I tried 2 drops of Frankincense under my tongue and to my amazement, I felt instantly better, not 100%, but at least I could function. I continue this routine every hour or two, as I could feel symptoms coming back, and knew it was time for my drops again, but by the next day I was much better.
