We’re going to touch on how to recognize the symptoms and the homeopathic remedies to help support recovery in these situations.

Heatstroke and sunstroke are essentially the same condition – a more serious form of heat exhaustion where your core body temperature gets dangerously high. The term ‘sunstroke’ is often used for heatstroke when it has developed by being in the sun.

Heatstroke and sunstroke are far more serious than heat exhaustion. These conditions can happen when your body’s internal (core) temperature goes over 40 degrees C or 104 degrees F.

A high temperature is one of the main signs of sunstroke and heatstroke.
Signs & symptoms of heatstroke/sunstroke may also include:
• Painful, throbbing headache
• Feeling desperately thirsty
• Feeling very hot
• Nausea and vomiting
• Being agitated
• Behavioral changes such as confusion, disorientation
• Being irritable
• Being delirious
• Seizures
• Having a drop in blood pressure
• Fast pulse
• Rapid, shallow breathing
• Losing consciousness / fainting

Initial steps to take:
• Get patient to a cool shaded area as quickly as possible.
• Nat. Sulph 30c to provoke a sweat.
• Give Room Temperature Water or Water with Electrolytes (Room Temp if possible) to replenish lost electrolytes. Watermelon is great for replacing lost electrolytes, but patient may not want to eat.
