Yesterday I wrote my post and forgot to push the Publish button, so I didn’t get it published. OOPS! But I did write it yesterday, I promise.
Heat Stroke and Heat Exhaustion can quickly become medical emergencies if not tended to quickly. The problem is that the person who is suffering from it may not notice that they have it. Confusion, fatigue followed by disorientation are some of the symptoms. In addition to the homeopathy, be sure and get someone who is experiencing heat stroke to a doctor as soon as possible.
Here are some remedies to have on hand to help out.
BTW, I know we are moving away from Heat Stroke season, but if you take a warm weather vacation, it would be a shame to miss it laying in your hotel room recovering.
Belladonna has symptoms that are common no matter what the pathology. Think RED, Think HEAT. Also, the Belladonna plant is a source of atropine which is used to dilate pupils, so that is also a symptom that will help you remember this remedy as well. Throbbing Head Pain from becoming heated. Bright Red Face. The skin feels warm, even if you hold your hand above the surface. They may become violent and want to leave, but they are generally fearless.
Carbo Veg has a headache which is accompanied by vertigo and nausea. The person who needs it seems lifeless and very depleted. Not the energy you would see with Belladonna. They want to be fanned.
Glonoine or Glonoinum is homeopathic nitroglycerine. It also has head pain from becoming over heated. There is a surging of blood to the head and pulsations through out the body. Heavy head, cannot lay it down.
Natrum Muriaticum is homeopathic sodium chloride. It is the one I have most commonly recommended. Very fatigued, dizzy, faint, sleep. Vision is unsteady and will see fiery zigzags around objects and sparks in front of the eyes. Also the fingers and extremities will feel numbness and tingling.
There are many others to consider as well. These are just the most common. It is nice to know that there are additional tools in the toolbox rather than just Gatorade and ice.
