Home Remedies For Sunstroke
The human body has a unique mechanism to regulate
body temperature. But when this process gets
disturbed, there occurs an imbalance that might
appear in the form of sunstroke.  Sunstroke also
called as heat stroke is an acute,
life-threatening emergency characterized
clinically by elevated body temperature and
central nervous system dysfunction. This
condition is fatal or causes damage to the brain
and other internal organs. Although heat stroke
predominantly affects people over age 50, it also
takes a toll on healthy young athletes. This
most serious form of heat injury can occur if
your body temperature rises to 104? (40?) or

awareness about this burning issue. Heatstroke
requires emergency treatment. Untreated
heatstroke leaves chances for damage to your
brain, heart, kidneys, and muscles. If the
primary care is neglected, the damage worsens and

Recommended Diet for Sunstroke (Heat Stroke)
To a certain extent
maintain the diet can prevent major consequences
of thermal stroke.  It is very essential to
include fresh fruits, vegetables, and juices in
the regular diet to avoid heat-related
disturbances in the body. This helps to prevent
dehydration, which is an important issue which
occurs with heat illness.  Fruits like Oranges,
watermelons, grapefruits, lemons, etc. are very
helpful in this condition. Drink plenty of water
especially before going out in the sun. This
helps to prevent weakness and it could replenish
the level of water in the body. 
Apart from that onions, mint,
cucumber, and yogurt should be positively
included in the diet to prevent heat stroke. 
This gives a cooling effect to the body and also
improves the overall health. Consume a
protein-rich diet. Include nuts, beans, pulses,
and olive oil in the daily intake.
  • Restricted Diet for Heat Stroke
  • Avoid consumption of excess salt which might
    adversely affect the functioning of normal sweat
    production. Salt is rich in sodium, so excess
    consumption of sodium hampers the regular
    production of sweat in the body which increases
    the risk for heat stroke.
  • Consumption of alcohol should be minimalized as
    it is known to increase heat in the body.
