Homeopathic Treatment for Sunstroke

What is Sunstroke?

Sunstroke, commonly known as heat stroke, refers to an acute illness in which the body temperature of a person rises above 104 degrees Fahrenheit or 40 degrees Celsius. Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause Sunstroke. High body temperature, along with dehydration, lead to various signs and symptoms. Sunstroke is a severe heat injury which needs urgent medical care. If not given proper care, it can result in serious complications. Homeopathic treatment for sunstroke helps in managing its acute symptoms as well as the after effects. Homeopathic treatment for sunstroke is given symptomatically along with first aid. For severe instances of sunstroke, Homeopathic medicines help in managing the condition in conjunction with the conventional mode of treatment.

Homeopathic treatment for sunstroke is helpful for people who tend to get frequent episodes. In such cases, a detailed case taking and case analysis helps in the selection of the most suitable homeopathic medicine. Homeopathic medicines reduce the intensity as well as the frequency of episodes. They are safe for all the age groups, have no side-effects, and are prepared using natural substances.

What Puts You at Risk?

Sunstroke can affect anyone. The following factors may put a person at risk:

1. Being exposed to a hot and humid climate for a long time.
2. Sudden exposure to hot weather.
3. Exertion in high temperatures.
4. Persons having a sedentary lifestyle are more at risk.
5. Less intake of water and too much clothing in a warm climate.
6. Lack of sleep and medical conditions like obesity, lung disorders, kidney diseases, heart disorders, diabetes mellitus, gastroenteritis, and mental illness.
7. Persons with a history of sunstroke are likely to suffer from it again.
8. Using medication like anti depressants, anti psychotics, drugs for lowering blood pressure, and diuretics.
9. Alcohol intake.

Causes of Sunstroke

In healthy individuals, the body temperature remains at 98.6 degrees F or 37 degrees C in all conditions. The heat loss by the body is equal to the heat produced by the body. Thermal regulatory mechanisms help in maintaining the body temperature within normal limits. But in sunstroke, this balance gets disturbed. The body’s ability to cool down by losing heat gets affected, leading to high body temperature. It is also related to the loss of fluid and minerals from the body. If the person’s fluid intake is not sufficient, it leads to dehydration, which further aggravates the condition.

Signs and Symptoms of Sunstroke

Signs and symptoms may vary from mild to severe, depending on the duration of exposure. In mild cases, there may be heat cramps, fainting, or heat exhaustion. If not given proper care at the right time, the condition may progress and cause an acute sunstroke. The signs and symptoms in sunstroke are more severe and need immediate medical attention. There may be a rise in body temperature above 104 degrees F or 40 degrees C, along with a throbbing headache. Nausea and vomiting may also occur. Initially, there is sweating, which is followed by hot and dry skin with redness on it. The patient suffers from dehydration, increased thirst, and a drop in blood pressure. Breathing may be shallow and quick, and there may be an increase in heart rate. The patient may look disoriented, irritable, and confused, and complain of dizziness, be light headed, and experience difficulty in speaking. In children, fits may also appear. If not given timely medical care, the person may lose consciousness or go into a coma.
