Heat Stroke

       As Thailand's climate becomes increasingly hotter, with temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius or more, it is essential to take precautions against heat stroke, a potentially fatal condition. Heat stroke occurs when the body's temperature rises to 40 degrees Celsius or higher for more than 10-15 minutes, leading to excessive sweating or even death.
       The ThaiKanya team, experts in traditional Thai medicine, offers valuable insights into recognizing, preventing, and treating heat stroke using herbal remedies.

**Signs and Symptoms of Heat Stroke:**

       * Red rash without sweating
       * Little urine output
       * Dizziness, confusion, and rapid breathing
       * Heart palpitations, weakness, and fainting
       * Leg cramps, convulsions, and shock

**Cooling Herbs for Balancing the Body:**

       Traditional Thai medicine emphasizes the use of cooling herbs to balance the body and reduce the risk of heat stroke. These herbs include:

       * Centella asiatica
       * Pandan leaves
       * Aloe vera
       * Coconut water
       * Lotus root
       * Chrysanthemum
       * Tamarind
       * Bael
       * Okra

**Cooling Fruits and Vegetables:**

       In addition to herbal remedies, incorporating cooling fruits and vegetables into the diet can also help prevent heat stroke. These include:

       * Watermelon
       * Red melon
       * Cantaloupe
       * Red dragon fruit
       * Santol
       * Pomelo
       * Apple

**Herbs to Avoid:**

       It is important to avoid or limit the consumption of foods with a heating effect, such as:

       * Durian
       * Lychee
       * Longan
       * Sapodilla
       * Ripe mango

**Triphala for Pitta Balance:**

       In Thai traditional medicine, Triphala, a combination of three herbs, is used to balance the body's Pitta dosha, which is associated with heat and fire. Triphala is made from:

       * 12 parts Thai anchor
       * 8 parts Makham pom
       * 4 parts Makhampom

       Boil the herbs in water for 15-30 minutes, strain, and drink 1 glass 1-3 times a day. Honey or stevia can be added for flavor.

**Prevention and Hydration:**

       Preventing heat stroke involves staying hydrated by drinking clean water regularly, especially in hot weather. It is recommended to drink approximately 2 liters of water per day. For individuals who sweat a lot, more water or mineral salts may be needed. However, those with medical conditions that require fluid restriction should consult their doctor. Additionally, it is advisable to avoid or reduce the consumption of dehydrating beverages such as tea, coffee, and alcohol.
