When you are infected with EBV, your body mounts an immune response in order to clear the virus from your system. As well as symptoms like a sore throat, fatigue, fever and swollen glands you may also experience debilitating dizzy spells, light-headedness and nausea. Fortunately dizziness in Epstein Barr can be treated effectively with natural remedies.
Let’s have a look at the most popular natural treatments:
1) Symptoms of light-headedness, vertigo and dizziness in Epstein Barr virus patients are commonly due to an imbalance in the nervous system particularly if your adrenal glands are depleted. To replenish the adrenals and help you cope with the stress of being ill, high dose magnesium, B vitamins and vitamin C are a good starting point.
2) Dizziness in Epstein Barr can be worsened by low blood sugar levels. Hypoglycemia is often accompanied by sweating, shaking and irritability. Low blood sugar is noticeable if you miss a meal or eat too late. Eating small, regular protein rich foods can help maintain stable blood sugar levels. Avoiding excess carbohydrates, sugar, alcohol and coffee is essential.
3) Some cases of light-headedness and dizziness in Epstein Barr can be due to low blood pressure. This is especially likely if you feel dizzy on standing. To help boost low blood pressure, start with some regular exercise, vitamin E and small amounts of sea salt in your diet.
4) Ear infections are a common cause of dizzy spells, nausea and vertigo. If you have symptoms of ear pain, ringing in the ear, pressure behind the ear drum or discharge from the ear then an ear infection may be the culprit. This may be a secondary infection due to EBV suppressing your immunity.
5) Anaemia can sometimes be the cause of fatigue and dizziness in Epstein Barr. Your doctor can run iron tests to see if you are anaemic. Anamia is more likely if you don’t eat a lot of red meat or have a history of heavy menstruation, gastrointestinal bleeding or during pregnancy.
6) Poor nerve flow and circulation to the head can be associated with dizziness in Epstein Barr patients. If you have a history of neck or back pain or a past injury then it is worth seeing a chiropractor or osteopath to assess your condition.
When you get dizzy or light headed then try doing some deep breathing, drink a glass of water and have a protein-rich snack. Lying down or resting on the floor with your legs up against a wall may help. If after following the above guidelines your dizzy spells continue then please see your natural health practitioner for further testing and advice.
