Why does fainting occur?

Why does fainting occur?
Fainting, or a temporary loss of consciousness, results when the brain is deprived of oxygen, even if it is for a moment.

Danger signs serve as warning signs and include visual blurring, lightheadedness, dizziness, noticeable weakness, sweating or nausea. The purpose served by fainting is to allow the body to recover by increasing the blood supply to the brain.

Causes of fainting
Causes for fainting can include low blood sugar, circulatory imbalances, an overburdened system, standing for long periods of time, heat, dehydration, stress, heatstroke, heat exhaustion, diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, internal bleeding, sudden fear, anxiety, intense pain resulting from injury and anemia.

Untie all tight clothing and raise the feet higher than the head.

Using Lavender, Rosemary or Peppermint oil, hold the open oil under the patient’s nose and let them inhale in the vapor.

When consciousness is regained, give the patient a glass of hot water to sip, with half a drop of lemon oil and a teaspoon of honey dissolved in it.
