OK, so I get REALLY bad allergies in the fall and spring. I get this fluid build up in my inner-ear that leaves me feeling like I’m stuck in a fun house. NOT fun! And I can’t take ANY kind of allergy medicine. Trust me, I’ve tried. All of it knocks me out. I took one benedryl Saturday afternoon and basically slept until noon on Monday.
Two years ago, I went to the allergist at my doctor’s office. They find out what you’re allergic to the most and then give you immunotherapy shots, one for pollen and one for … OK, yeah I forget… let’s just say other allergens. I got huge welts from the shots and they hurt like hell! I stuck to it, I gave myself the shots every week for MONTHS, even though just the thought of these shots was enough to send me into fetal position. After a while, I realized that I’d rather deal with a little dizziness a couple of times a year then the agonizing shots and the anxiety that came with them. So, I stopped.
This year was the worst I’ve ever experienced from the dizziness, There were a couple of days where I could barely stand. I felt wobbly and I couldn’t think.
So, I started doing research. The cuplrit had to be fluid on my inner-ear. Some resources said rubbing alcohol, some said white vinegar, others touted the benefits of lavender oil. So I combined all three. Half alcohol, half vinegar and a drop of lavender EO. I put one drop in each ear and by the next morning, I was beginning to feel better. So, I did this every evening for three days.
