What to eat to help with dizziness and loss of balance
Eating a healthy diet full of vitamins and nutrients may not stop the problem completely, but it certainly won’t do any harm and will benefit your overall health.
- Low blood sugar levels may cause dizziness and loss of balance. Eat slow release, low GI foods such as nuts, dried fruit, wholegrain bread, wholegrain porridge oats, celery and peanut butter.
- Lean Protein can help to stabilise blood sugars, eat more: skinless chicken, fish, quinoa and barley.
- Haemoglobin carries oxygen through the body. Low levels can cause dizziness and may be caused by Iron deficiency, eat more: almonds, dates, asparagus, tofu, lentils and leafy green vegetables. Also, possibly caused by Vitamin C deficiency, eat more broccoli, tomatoes, spinach, peppers and citrus fruits.
Try to drink at least one and half litres of water, herbal tea, or non-sugary drinks each day. Juicy fruit and vegetables, full of water, are essential in your diet. Check out our blog post Good Hydrations.
