Dizziness
What is it?
Dizzy spells are caused by change in blood pressure or posture. If they are accompanied by recurring headaches with nausea and vomitting, see a doctor immediately.
Symptoms:
Spinning sensation, faintness, giddiness.
Conventional Practice:
A doctor will want to know what other symptoms you have had. For example, if someone staggers or is unable to stand up, the doctor may suspect vertigo or poor circulation.
Alternative Treatments:
  Acupressure
  Acupressure is a mixture of massage and acupuncture, and is thought to be the forerunner of acupuncture. Instead of inserting needles, practitioners use firm thumb or fingertip massage on pain relieving pressure points. Acupressure is used to balance a flow of energy called Qi, which is believed to run through invisible channels known as meridians. More Info
