Every summer, lots of people die in India because of Heat stroke. This year also, the demon has engulfed many people in the country just at the start of the season. Can we discuss how to avoid this heat stroke in the hot summer? What should be our food habits, clothes and other ways of lifestyle to keep it at bay?
Hi Rituporna....very good question for this summer....Avoid all substances that contain caffeine, so first thing avoid coffee. Do not exercise vigorously during summer. If you cannot do without exercising, then you must stick to some special and simple exercises to avoid exhaustion. Last but not the least, if you see the symptoms of heat stroke, do not take them lightly and take proper care of yourself.

If it is impossible to avoid working in the sun, then you must at least make use of an umbrella or hat which will save you from intense heat. Dehydration is one of the commonest problems during the intense summer months. This can aggravate the heat strokes. so drink more water and that too frequently . Avoid alcohol in the summer months. Always wear loose cotton clothes as they absorb sweat and do not make you feel tired. Especially in the summer months, you must stick only to natural cotton fibers. Whenever possible take a bath or shower with cold water.
