Homeopathic Remedies For Heat Exhaustion

Symptoms Of Heat Exhaustion

The symptoms of heat exhaustion include: confusion, weakness, dizziness, faintness, in coordination, headache, muscle cramps, over breathing, disordered or dim vision, nausea and vomiting, and rapid, weak pulse. A bout of 'food poisoning', with diarrhea and/or vomiting may precede and precipitate the disorder, as indeed can any disease accompanied by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or sweating (e.g. malaria). The skin is cool, pale, and moist. The oral temperature is usually normal or slightly subnormal. The differentiation between heat exhaustion and heat stroke is illustrated in below, heat stroke being a significantly more serious medical problem.

Should the patient fail to respond rapidly to the measures given above, expert medical help should be sought, so that treatment along different lines may be instituted in accordance with the correct diagnosis.
