Sunstroke

India
May 12, 2011 3:54am CST
Today the temperature here is 48.5 Celsius, many have sunstrokes. They are admitted in hospitals, I heard this in local TV news channel. Here is the time tasted tip to prevent sunstrokes, it works. Just keep 2 to 3 onions, preferably white onions, (here we have onions with pink skin and white skin) in your pocket. For lady wearing sari, keep it wrapped in the portion near your waist. Wonder from where I got?While our home construction was going on, I saw the male and female workers had this. They worked in open sun, in noon, never had a stroke. My son and hubby and I too adopt this, never suffered from sunstroke.Yes if you ever have one, just take an ‘unripe’ green mango, put it above gas flame or coal fire for 5 minutes, mesh it, add water, add salt, sugar and drink it, it works, try this. [b]Any tips from your side? Did you have sunstroke ever? Please respond and share your views.[/b] Kalyani ‘Namastey’. . God bless you to enjoy a lucky day ahead.

The best way to keep from getting a heat/sun stroke, is to keep your self hydrated! Drink water or something like Gatorade very often. You should be urinating every two hrs or so..if your not then your not getting enough to drink. And if your out in the sun, often take breaks in the shade or indoors. Take time out to cool down and let your body try to regulate to normal temps. Hydrate and shade! :-)

Also, to tell if your pretty dehydrated, you can pinch the skin on the back of your hand, on the top..if it takes longer than 2-3 secs to fall back into place, then your getting dehydrated.

Hi. Kalyni2011. The only tips that I have for beating the heat is to stay from the outdoors while it is very hot. I also drink plenty of fluids and I wear cool clothing that keeps me cool and dry. I keep my Central Air on all day until the sun goes down to where it is cooler. It has been very hot lately here and I am doing everything that I can to stay from out of the hot sun!

Dear Kalyaniji When I was at Rajasthan during Summers, I learned another trick to keep away from the sunstrokes - some of these people also keep a lemon with them. They say that once you start feeling nausea - the initial signs of getting hit by the sun, try to bite the lemon (unpeeled) - dont know how far or in what way it helps but yes, it did help many of our group to stay away from this sunstroke. I did carry the onion with me. Here at bhubaneswar and orissa we already are now having a heatwave and I am sure this tip is surely going to help many

Thanks for the hint to avoid sunstroke! I used to live in the Caribbean, where it is very hot, so that tip would have been very useful then!
