The imbalance you experience while walking or turning can be due to problem with the fluid balance regulating system in the inner ear.The amount of fluid in the inner ear increases intermittently. This disturbs the hearing and balance mechanisms, usually affecting only one ear.This condition is known as Ménière's disease .Apart form giddiness you will be having- tinnitus (hissing, ringing or roaring usually in one ear).Some people experience brief "shocks", and others have constant unsteadiness. These are attributed to sudden mechanical deformation of the otolith organs (utricle and saccule), causing a sudden activation of vestibular reflexes. This is a very disabling symptom as it occurs without warning and can result in severe injury. Fatty acids especially omega fatty acids from fish oil, flax seed oil, and borage seed oil helps in inflammation associated with this condition.1,000 mg three times daily of fish oil and one to two tablespoons (15 to 30 ml) of flax seed oil helps reduce sensory-neural hearing impairment and stabilizes the immune system.But if your syptoms are severe you should take proper treatment along with this .You can take these measures as well. Distribute your food and fluid intake evenly throughout the day and from day to day. Eat approximately the same amount of food at each meal and do not skip meals. If you eat snacks, have them at regular times. # Stopping smoking if you are a smoker. # Food triggers. There seems to be a link between migraine and Meniere's disease in some people. Food triggers are known to cause migraine attacks in some people. A similar trigger may contribute to some attacks of Meniere's disease. For example, cutting out caffeine (found in tea, coffee, cola, and chocolate) and alcohol may be worth trying. # Get plenty of sleep # Remain physically active # Avoid eating foods or fluids which have a high salt content. High salt intake results in fluctuations in the inner ear fluid pressure and may increase your symptoms. Aim for a diet high in fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and low in canned, frozen or processed foods. A 2-gram sodium intake diet is usually what we recommend.
Regarding other benefits of Alsi-This is good for those who do not eat fish or wish to take fish oil supplements, flaxseed oil does provide a good alternative due to the presence of omega 3 fatty acids.Omega-3 fats can help reduce the inflammation that is a significant factor in conditions such as asthma, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine headaches, and osteoporosis.This is also called linseed and it is used in the treatment of heart disease, cancer and diabetes high Blodd pressure,constipation and menapausal complaints .Health experts recommend an intake of 2 to 4 tablespoons per day. Please note, however, that flaxseed is high in fiber—you should generally start with about 1/2 to 1 tsp per day, and gradually add more until you reach the recommended amount. Give yourself about a month to get to the recommended amount per day. When adding fiber to one's diet, it is important to drink an adequate amount of fluid—about eight glasses of water per day.
Whole flaxseed’s naturally hard hull keeps it fresh for several years at room temperature. Ground flaxseed, on the other hand, requires more care. Ground flaxseed may develop an off-flavor and taste. Therefore, once ground, it should be kept in an air tight container and refrigerated. Ground flax will stay good for up to four months if kept refrigerated or frozen. Ground Alsi should be kept in cool & dark place. And it must be eaten in raw form.If added to hot food it loses it's effect on high blood pressure and cholestrol. Again Flax Seed Oil must be Kept in cool place and taken with cold food (as is or on cold cereal or with yoghurt.But if you consume the whole seed it will not be digested.
Alsi (Flax seed) has high fiber and some of the useful oil properties. mix one or two tea spoons of Alsin when preparing dough for your Chapati. the high fiber properties of alsi makes your bowels to move free (so wont be any constipation) and helpful in preventing large bowel problems like diverticulosis,inflammatory bowel disease and colonic cancers. alsi also contains omega 3 and omega 6, which help in controlling your total cholesterol and LDL (BAD)cholesterol,how ever it wont improve your HDL (good ) cholesterol.

Alsi(flaxseed) is a rich source of polyunsaturated fats and mono-unsaturated fats.It contains nearly two and a half times as much omega-3 as omega-6.It also contains vitamins,minerals,protein and lignan(helps in preventing certain types of cancers).Flaxseed contains about 14 gms/100 gms of omega-3 which makes it a premium vegetarian food source of omega-3.Because of its high essential fatty acid contents,it lowers blood cholestrol and triglyceride levels.It also reduces inflammation in arthritis and promotes skin health.Adding 2 tablespoons roasted and grounded alsi to your daily diet can fulfill your daily requirement of essential fatty acids plus provide calcium,magnesium and zinc.
