Do you know what labyrinthitis is?
This ailment is an inflammation of the inner ear in the region known as the “labyrinth.” In later stages, labyrinthitis can affect both balance and hearing.
Dizziness and vertigo are the main symptoms of labyrinthitis. Usually this problem begins to manifest itself around the age of 40, but there are many people younger than 40 who still suffer from this problem.
People who consume alcohol and smoke too much are especially vulnerable to labyrinthitis. Also, people who abuse medications like aspirin and drink too much coffee and soft drinks are at a high risk of contracting labyrinthitis. Those who eat too much chocolate find themselves at risk too.
Those who already have problems with labyrinthitis should not consume anything that has caffeine—which greatly limits their food choices.
Living a healthy life without a lot of stress and physically demanding activities helps us build up greater immunities against labyrinthitis.
Although those who already suffer from it should consult a doctor for proper treatment, it’s also possible to improve their quality of life naturally. Here’s how you can treat the symptoms of labyrinthitis at home:
To avoid dizziness, don’t do this exercise while standing. First, have a seat. Then, fill your lungs with air as much as you can. Close your mouth and nostrils and force yourself to release the air, while keeping your mouth and nostrils closed. Hold on for as long as possible, but don’t overdo it. When you can no longer hold the air in, release it through your nose and mouth.
Try to repeat this exercise twice a day.
The idea of this exercise is to unclog the tiny vessels located in the inner ear to improve circulation in this region.
Although it is a great exercise for people with labyrinthine problems, keep in mind that it’s not recommended for people with hypertension, heart disease, and for the elderly.
It’s also possible to treat the symptoms of labyrinthitis from the inside out. See which one of these natural recipes can help you:
– 3 teaspoons of fennel;
– 3 teaspoons rosemary;
– 9 cloves;
– 3 cups of water.
Boil the water and add all the ingredients. Cover and allow to steep for some time. Drink three cups throughout the day.
It’s also possible to make another type of tea:
– 1 bay leaf;
– 1/4 teaspoon of grated nutmeg;
– 1 glass of water.
Put the ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil. Let it stand for a while and drink this tea three times a day for three days.
Allow 30 days to pass before resuming the treatment.
