Physical Activity - How It Can Boost Your Immunity?

Physical Activity - How It Can Boost Your Immunity?

A healthy person can be more productive; increased productivity will eventually lead to success and happiness. However, all of this goes for a toss when you suffer from frequent illness. The frequency of falling sick is also known to reduce a body’s immunity further.

And, exercise is known to boost not only the immune system of the body, but also keeps the bones and the heart healthy, preventing the risk of many diseases and illnesses. It is in the last few decades that various studies and research has confirmed a number of health benefits associated with regular exercise, immunology being one of them.

Physical activity boosts the immune system

Doctors have found that regular physical activities help in boosting the cells that are there in the body to attack the bacteria and other disease-causing microbes when they enter the body. In people who do not exercise at all, these cells turn out to work rather more slowly compared to those who lead an active daily life with a few hours or minutes of physical activities in it. And as a result of exercising, the immune system becomes well-equipped to prevent attacks of germs which could make you sick.

Can doing too much physical activity be harmful?
Physical activity is primarily known for keeping your body in a perfect shape and your weight under control. However, one must understand that it can only help the body's natural immune system when done at a moderate level, as overdoing it can lead to suppressing the normal immune functions instead. If you don’t give your body the rest it requires, the immune system can become weaker than before, making you feel weak, tired and badly run down.

How can you boost your immunity power through exercise?
One doesn't need to be an athlete or start doing heavy weightlifting to boost the body's immunity power. Walking half an hour daily or spending a few hours every week in the gym can help you develop better immunity. Remember, the whole concept behind physical exercise boosting the immune system of the body lies in speeding up the cells of the immune system so that, it can fight off the bacteria. Therefore, as long as an exercise is boosting the cells' functionality, you're good to go, irrespective of whether it's swimming or cycling or regular jogging.

Though, there are still debates on the direct relationship between exercises and how it improves the immune functions of the body, immunologists and allergy specialists have found simple truths about the impact of exercise on immunology. Therefore, outside of helping your body in becoming healthier over time, there’s no denying that regular exercise can help the body in fighting off harmful diseases as well, by boosting its immune power.

Turmeric Benefits in Hindi - हल्दी के फायदे

हल्दी को इसके गुणों के आधार पर "मसालों की रानी" की संज्ञा दी जाती है. इसमें सुगंध, तेज स्वाद और सुनहरे रंग जैसी विशेषताएं मौजूद होती हैं. हल्दी में एंटी-ऑक्सिडेंट, एंटी-वायरल, एंटी-बायोटिक, एंटी-फंगल और एंटी-इंफ्लेमेटरी गुण होते हैं. यह प्रोटीन, आहार फाइबर, नियासिन, विटामिन सी, विटामिन ई, विटामिन के, पोटेशियम, कैल्शियम, तांबे, लोहा, मैग्नीशियम और जस्ता जैसे पोषक तत्वों से भी भरपूर है. आप पाउडर के रूप में हल्दी को करी, तले हुए व्यंजन, चिकन, गर्म दूध और मसालेदार सलाद ड्रेसिंग में डाल सकते हैं. हल्दी को गोली के रूप में भी लिया जा सकता है. आइए हल्दी से होने वाले फायदों को जानें.

7. घाव को जल्दी भरने में
हल्दी में प्राकृतिक रूप से एंटीसेप्टिक और जीवाणुरोधी गुण मौजूद होने के कारण इसे संक्रमण की रोकथाम के रूप में इस्तेमाल की जाती है. हल्दी क्षतिग्रस्त त्वचा की मरम्मत में मदद करती है और इसका उपयोग छालरोग (सोरायसिस) और अन्य सूजन संबंधी त्वचा विकार के इलाज के लिए किया जा सकता है.
8. करे मधुमेह को नियंत्रित
हल्दी के इस्तेमाल से मधुमेह के इलाज में इंसुलिन के स्तर को कम किया जा सकता है. यह ग्लूकोज नियंत्रण में सुधार लाता है और मधुमेह के इलाज के लिए इस्तेमाल दवाओं के प्रभाव को बढ़ाता है. हल्दी टाइप -2 डायबिटीज की शुरुआत को रोक सकता है.
9. कोलेस्ट्रॉल को कम करने में
सिर्फ हल्दी को एक भोजन के रूप में इस्तेमाल करने से सीरम कोलेस्ट्रॉल का स्तर कम हो सकता है. उचित कोलेस्ट्रॉल का स्तर बनाए रखने से कई कार्डियोवास्कुलर (हृदय सम्बंधित) रोगों को रोका जा सकता है.
10. इम्युनिटी के लिए

Brain Stroke - Who Can Possibly Suffer From It?

Brain Stroke - Who Can Possibly Suffer From It?

A brain stroke can affect anyone at any point of time when the supply of blood to the brain is interrupted. It can threaten major physical functions and can prove to be fatally dangerous at times. The brain stem which is placed right above the spinal cord controls the breathing, heartbeat and levels of blood pressure. It is also in charge of controlling some elementary functions such as swallowing, hearing, speech and eye movements.

What are the different types of strokes?
There are three main kinds of stroke: ischemic strokes, hemorrhagic strokes and transient ischemic attacks. The most common type of brain stroke is the ischemic stroke is caused by narrowing or blocking of arteries to the brain, which prevents the proper supply of blood to the brain. Sometimes it so happens that the blood clot that has formed elsewhere in the body have travelled via the blood vessels and has been trapped in the blood vessel which provides blood to the brain. When the supply of blood to a part of the brain is hindered, the tissue in that area dies off owing to lack of oxygen. The other variant of brain stroke is termed as hemorrhagic stroke is caused when the blood vessels in and around the brain burst or leak. Strokes need to be diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible in order to minimize brain damage.  Remembering the F.A.S.T. acronym can help with recognizing the onset of stroke (Face, Arms, Speed, Time - explained below). 

What are the common symptoms of a brain stroke?
The symptoms of the brain stroke are largely dependent on the area of the brain that has been affected. It can interfere with normal functioning, such as breathing and talking and other functions which human beings can perform without thinking such as eye movements or swallowing. Since all the signals from the brain as well as other parts of the body traverse through the brain stem, the interruption of blood flow often leads to numbness or paralysis in different parts of the body.

Who is likely to have a stroke?
Anyone is at a risk of developing brain stroke although ageing is directly proportional to the risk of having a stroke. Not only that an individual with a family history of brain stroke or transient ischemic attack is at a higher risk of developing stroke. People who have aged over 65 accounts for about 33 percent of all brain strokes. It is important to point here that individuals with high blood pressure, high blood sugar, cholesterol, cancer, autoimmune diseases and some blood disorders are at a higher risk of developing brain stroke.

There are a few factors which can increase the risk of developing stroke beyond any control. But there are certain lifestyle choices as well which aids in controlling the chances of being affected by stroke. It is crucial to refrain from long-term hormone replacement therapies as well as birth control pills, smoking, lack of physical activity, excessive use of alcohol and drug addiction. A brain stroke is a life-threatening medical condition, and when an individual has symptoms that resemble that of stroke, it is crucial to seek immediate medical help.

Treatment for stroke

  1. Treatment depends on the type of stroke.
  2. Ischemic strokes can be treated with 'clot-busting' drugs.
  3. Hemorrhagic strokes can be treated with surgery to repair or block blood vessel weaknesses.
  4. The most effective way to prevent strokes is through maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

What is TPA?
TPA is a thrombolytic or a “Clot Buster” drug. This clot buster is used to break-up the clot that is causing a blockage or disruption in the flow of blood to the brain and helps restore the blood flow to the area of the brain. It is given by intravenous (IV). This can be given only within 4.5 hrs of the onset of symptoms

Time is brain

  1. Remember Every second Loss means brain cells die.
  2. Rush to the nearest Stroke Centre whenever you experience such symptoms.
  3. U can save the brain cells dying if you reach within 4.5 hrs by the CLOT BUSTER. 

Endovascular procedures 
Another treatment option is an endovascular procedure* called mechanical thrombectomy, strongly recommended, in which  trained doctors try  removing a large blood clot by  sending a wired-caged device called a stent retriever, to the site of the blocked blood vessel in the brain

Stroke prevention
The good news is that 80 percent of all strokes are preventable. It starts with managing key risk factors, including 

  1. High blood pressure,
  2. Cigarette smoking,
  3. Diabetes
  4. Atrial fibrillation and
  5. Physical inactivity.
  6. More than half of all strokes are caused by uncontrolled hypertension or high blood pressure, making it the most important risk factor to control. 

Rehabilitation
The best way to get better after a stroke is to start stroke rehabilitation ("rehab"). In stroke rehab, a team of health professionals works with you to regain skills you lost as the result of a stroke. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Panic Attack - Ways It Can Be Treated!

Panic Attack - Ways It Can Be Treated!

A panic attack is something which can hit a person like a sack of bricks and can really affect him or her. While a lot of people around the world do happen to suffer as a result of panic attacks, not many of them know what they could do to make it end soon and to get back to normal. So, wouldn’t it be a pretty good idea to learn a little about what can be done to control a panic attack?

Symptoms
One of the most common signs of a panic attack is a hike in the rate of intake of air and an increase in the pulse rate of the person at the same time. In addition to this, the person’s palms get sweaty and clammy. A lot of people who experience panic attacks also feel the need to either vomit or defecate when they have one, neither of which can be said to be a pleasant feeling. Dizziness and a feeling of numbness are also quite common symptoms indicating a panic attack.

Causes
The reason why a person usually has a panic attack in the first place is because he or she feels that the degree of control possessed over a certain situation is not to the level that would seem to be comfortable. What is interesting when it comes to panic attacks is the fact that the more a person panics in a specific situation, the more the panic attacks are going to occur in that sort of situation or ones that are similar. For example, if a person is worried prior to a race and runs away from it instead of running the race itself, it registers in the mind as something worth being scared about. Facing up to the fear has great value. Apart from the anxiety factor, certain medicines and physical ailments also sometimes result in panic attacks.

Tips to end a panic attack
1. Hyperventilation is common and a deep breath goes a long way.
2. An alternative to hyperventilation would be to hold one’s breath. The duration for which this should be done is about 10 to 15 seconds. Doing this just a few times greatly helps in returning to normal.
3. A person doesn’t really think when in the middle of a panic attack. Making the effort to do any mental exercise such as backward counting in sets of 3 from 100 helps.

Things You Must Ask Your Doctor!

Things You Must Ask Your Doctor!

Going through pregnancy is an experience, which is truly unique and is one that an average woman goes through only a few times over the course of her life. Having said that, it is such a complex process that it is only expected that there are questions, which occur to a woman over the course of those nine eventful months, which need answers to. A qualified doctor is the right person to ask these questions to, but what exactly are the questions which need to be asked? Here is short list of a few of them.

What medicines should a woman make use of if she feels unwell during pregnancy?
Over the course of pregnancy, a woman is likely to feel ill due to a variety of issues. It could be a very bad case of heartburn or just a headache. A woman must ask her doctor about the right medicines for the issues. These medicines should be over-the-counter so that she can get them without needing a prescription and can take them without having to wait for an appointment. Generally, the doctor would provide a list of medicines to take in various scenarios. For example, in case there is fever with a headache, the doctor may prescribe Tylenol. Similarly, a fibre supplement may be advised in the case of constipation.

What should be the target weight and how fast should a woman gain it?
Considering that during pregnancy, a second and developing body needs to be nourished, the food requirements of a mother-to-be are much higher than an average woman. What this effectively means is that over the course of a few months, a woman may need to gain some weight in order to provide enough nutrition for the baby, without having her own levels of the same drop off a cliff! If a woman is underweight, this means that up to 40 pounds may need to be gained.

What are the exercises required to have an easy and smooth pregnancy?
It is to be kept in mind that gaining weight really does not mean that exercise is to be cut off. As a matter of fact, if a pregnant woman stays active to a reasonable level over her course of pregnancy, it is much better for both the mother as well as the baby. Also, the chances of water retention or anxiety are much less. Isn’t it worth to spend time exercising and avoid spending unnecessary time worrying on issues related to pregnancy?

Dadhi Badhane ke Upay in Hindi - घनी दाढ़ी बढ़ाने के घरेलू उपाय

दाढ़ी बढ़ाना या कटवाना ये बेहद व्यक्तिगत मसला है क्योंकि कुछ लोगों को ये पसंद नहीं भी आ सकती है लेकिन खुद को मेच्‍योर दिखाने के लिये कुछ युवकों की कामना होती है कि उसकी दाढ़ी बढ जाये. लेकिन कई बार हारमोन की कमी के कारण ऐसा नहीं हो पाता है. काफी हद तक दाढ़ी का बढ़ना प्राकृतिक भी है. तो आईए आपको सामान्‍य रूप से दाढ़ी बढा़ने के कुछ नुस्‍खों के बारे में बताते हैं.
1. ऊपर से निचे या बाएं से दाएं करें सेविंग
अच्‍छा होगा कि आप उपर से नीचे की तरफ या फिर दायें से बायें तरफ शेविंग करें. मगर इस तरह की तकनीक अपनाने से पहले सावधान रहें क्‍योंकि रेजर से आपके स्किन कट भी सकती है.
2. आहार में शामिल करें ज्यादा प्रोटीन
ज्यादा प्रोटीन वाले भोजन खाना दाढ़ी को तेजी से बढ़ने में मदद कर सकता है. क्‍योंकि प्रोटीन शरीर को ऐसे पौष्टिक तत्व उपलब्ध कराता है जो ज्यादा बालों को उगाता है. इसलिए अपने आहार में प्रोटीन की मात्रा बढ़ाएं. प्रोटीन मांस, मछली, अंडों और नट्स में सबसे ज्‍यादा पाया जाता है. अपने आहार और ब्यूटी प्रोडक्ट में विटामिन बी को शामिल करें. विटामिन बी1, बी6 और बी12 भी बालों को जल्दी बढ़ाने में मदद करता है. साथ ही नियमित रूप से बायोटीन का सेवन करें. यह भी बालों और नाखूनों को तेजी से बढ़ाने में बहुत मददगार होता है.
3. ट्रिमिंग का प्रयोग करके
शेविंग के अलावा ट्रिमिंग के जरिये भी आप घनी दाढ़ी पा सकते हैं. ट्रिमिंग से आपको अनचाहें बालों से छुटकारा भी मिल जायेगा और आप के बालों की विकास भी तेजी से होगी.
4. दालचीनी के पाउडर से
दालचीनी के पाउडर में नीबू का रस मिलाकर पेस्‍ट तैयार कर लें. इसे चेहरे पर लगाये और 15 मिनट के लिये छोड़ दें. फिर ठंडे पानी से चेहरा साफ कर सूती कपड़े से पोछ लें. ऐसा करने से आपके चेहरे की मासूमियत और नमी बनी रहेगी. हफ्ते में दो बार करने से घनी दाढ़ी और मासूमियत दोनों आसनी से पाया जा सकता है.
5. आंवले के तेल से मालिश
चेहरे की बाल को बढ़ाने के लिये आंवले का तेल से चेहरे की मालिश करना एक अच्‍छा विकल्‍प है. आंवले की तेल से रोजाना अपने चेहरे की 20 मिनट तक मसाज करें और फिर उसे ठंडे पानी से धुल लें.
6. सप्ताह में तीन बार करें सेविंग
प्राकृतिक रूप से घनी दाढ़ी पाने के लिये शेविंग एक अच्‍छा उपाय है. अगर आपके दाढी के बालों का विकास धीमी रफ्तार से हो रहा है तो बेहतर होगा कि एक सप्‍ताह में तीन बार शेविंग करें.
7. आंवले का तेल और सारसों की पत्ती
आंवले की तेल के साथ सरसो की पत्‍ती को मिलाकर भी मसाज किया जा सकता है. इसके लिये पहले आप सरसो की पत्‍ती का पेस्‍ट बना लें और फिर उसमें एकाद बूंद आंवला तेल मिक्‍स करें. इसके बाद उस पेस्‍ट को दाढ़ी वाले हिस्‍से पर लगायें और 20 मिनट के लिये छोड़ दें. ठंडे पानी से चेहरे को धुल कर उसे साफ कपड़े से साफ करें. ऐसा सप्‍ताह में 3 या 4 बार करने से आप घनी दाढी पा सकते हैं.
8. उल्‍टी दिशा में शेविंग
उल्‍टी दिशा में शेविंग करना ज्‍यादा असरदार होगा. इस तरह शेविंग करने से आपके बाल की विकास भी तेजी से होगी और आप जल्‍दी घनी दाढ़ी भी पा सकेंगे.

Ancient Wisdom for a Healthy Modern Life

Ancient wisdom for healthy modern life:

The longest, healthy living individuals throughout history who lived to 80, 90 and even 100-plus years of age lived without suffering from obesity, diabetes, heart disease, dementia, osteoporosis or cancer.
They never knew the concept of good fats, bad fats, low carb diets, glycaemic index, or any other modern health.

What they were eating?

  • The best available data suggest ancestors obtained about 35% of their dietary energy from natural fats, 35% from carbohydrates and 30% from protein. Saturated fats contributed approximately 7.5% of total energy.
  • Now indian diet is made up of upto 60 to 70% of carbohydrates and most of it is refined carbohydrates where as our ancestors carbohydrates were complex non starchy like fruits and vegetables.
  • Now there is phobia against fats since 1960. 
  • All fats are not bad.
  • Natural fats are healthy and it's required for good physical and brain health.
  • Only processed oils are not good.

What was the timing of our ancestor's eating?

  • They were mostly eating between dawn to dusk.
  •  In ancient rome, dinner was called" cena" and was the main meal of the day. It was taken late in the afternoon or when the sun started going down.
  • With no electricity, cooking dinner in the evening was not an option.
  • Till 19th century, lunch was dinner and dinner was lunch.
  • The whole day was structured differently than it is today.
  • People got up much earlier and went to bed much earlier.
  • Today people have dinner at 9 pm to 10 pm and snack in the evening.
  • If we have 500 to 600 calories in dinner and goes to sleep after 1 to 2 hrs, where the energy goes? it gets stored as fat.
  • Data says almost 70% of all ice cream is consumed after 6pm. 
  • If we keep on snacking without giving 12 to 15 hrs rest to our gastrointestinal system, how it can be a healthy habit?
  • It's against our evolution.
  • Our environment has changed dramatically, from hunter-gatherer to agriculture to industrial revolution to technological era.
  • In past 50-100 yrs we saw huge changes in food and eating habits.
  • Our genes require 100s of 1000s of years to evolve haven't been able to keep up to sudden changes.
  • Only 10% of our genes have adapted in past 10000 years 90% have not.
  • Our genes haven't fully adjusted to these. 
  • Discrepancy between genes and modern environment= chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertention, obesity and cancers.

In this campaign, I will further address ancient food secrets, habits, exercises which kept them healthy and how we can use them to modern life.

Treatment Of Skin

DHMS (Diploma In Homeopathic Medicine & Surgery)
Homeopath, Dhanbad
Treatment Of Skin

Who doesn’t want a healthy skin but getting that healthy skin is far easier said than done! we all suffer from skin issues-some common, some not so much. Skin conditions depend on umpteen numbers of factors, such as hormone imbalance, blood impurity, stomach problems, etc.

There are some skin problems, which are just superficial while most others are related to internal problems. Skin issues affect the face, hands and other exposed parts of the body. Treating them superficially means just suppressing them, which may lead to similar or graver problems elsewhere or cause it to reappear with more intensity. So the best way to treat these skin problems is to treat them from their roots, internally.

Homeopathy is the system of medicine in which ailments are treated by minimal doses of natural substances. It attacks and cures the root cause of the ailment without causing side effects. To deal with skin disease, it not only studies the skin type but also takes into account a complete analysis of the mind, genetic factors and the condition of the immune system. Homeopathy just doesn’t treat the symptoms, but delves inside the body and takes on the root cause behind the symptoms.

Homeopathy is effective in treating various skin problems, such as eczema, rashes, allergic dermatitis, uriticaria, psoriasis, lichen planus and other variants, lichen planus and other variants, chronic and recurring bacterial infections, chronic and recurring bacterial infections, fungus infections, acne, dandruff, hair loss and many other skin ailments.

Homeopathy for skin problems – top 10 treatments:

Here is a list of top 10 treatments in homeopathy for skin problems, which if followed will give amazing results. Read on to know more:

1. Rhus toxicodendron:

This is a useful remedy for treating eczema. In eczema, the skin is covered with numerous vesicular eruptions. The symptoms of eczema include itching, tingling, swelling, etc. The symptoms get worse at night, during winter and in damp weather. Cold air aggravates the problem. Warmth and moisturizing provides some temporary relief. It tends to get worse and become uriticaria and herpes, if not treated on time.

2. Natrum muriaticum:

This remedy is also for eczema. It not only treats eczema but is also known to provide relief from mental disturbances caused due to grief and disappointment, being resentful, dwelling on past unhappy instances, fears of rejection, etc.

3. Graphites:

It is a remedy for a number of skin diseases. The symptoms which it treats are moist scruffy eruptions on the scalp, face, bends of joints, between fingers and behind the ears. It also treats cracked corners of the mouth and eyes, bleeding and release of a gluey, honey-like, thick, tenacious discharge, etc. It is also useful in treating symptoms, such as dry and itchy skin; brittle hair that tends to fall off and other such related symptoms.

4. Pulsatilla:

Pulsatilla is predominantly a female remedy. This remedy treats rashes with profuse menses or scanty menses or rashes due to gastric or uterine problems. Diarrhea may also accompany these rashes. Nettle rash, which is worse at the beginning of winter, as well as itching when exposed to air, is also treated by this medicine. Acne can also be healed with pulsatilla.

5. Sepia:

If you have that point towards herpes, sepia is the medicine to take. This homeopathic medicine treats symptoms of herpetic conditions around the bends of joints, knees and ankles, behind the ears. In the beginning, it is dry, and then it turns moist and releases discharge. Brownish spots on the skin, yellow spots, and liver spots are few of the other symptoms. It also treats eczema on hands, as well as dry, rough and chapped skin. It is also good in treating psoriasis.

6. Arsenicum:

Sun Stroke Symptoms and Treatment in Hindi - लू लगने के लक्षण, उपचार

गर्मियों में लू लगने की समस्या आम है. अंग्रेजी में इसे हीट स्ट्रोक और सनस्ट्रोक के नाम से जाना जाता है. जब तापमान चरम पर होता है और गर्म हवा के झोंके चलते हैं तब लू लग सकती है. इसमें हमारे शरीर के द्रव सूखने जाते हैं जिससे पानी और नमक की कमी हो जाती है और लू लगने का खतरा उत्पन्न हो जाता है. लू लगने पर शरीर में गर्मी, खुश्की और थकावट महसूस होने लगती है. लू लगने के कारण कई और मामूली बीमारियां जैसे कि हीट एडेमा (शरीर का सूजना), हीट रैश, हीट क्रैम्प्स (शरीर में अकड़न) और हीट साइनकॉप (बेहोशी) आदि भी हो सकती हैं. चिकित्सकिय भाषा में शरीर के तापमान को 105 डिग्री फारेनहाइट से अधिक रहने पर और शरीर के सेंट्रल नर्वस सिस्टम में जटिलताओं के पेश आने पर लू लगना कहते हैं.

लू लगना के लक्षण
* लू लगने पर शरीर में गर्मी, खुश्की, सिरदर्द, कमजोरी, शरीर टूटना, बार-बार मुंह सूखना, उलटी, चक्कर, सांस लेने में तकलीफ, दस्त और कई बार निढाल या बेहोशी जैसे लक्षण नजर आते हैं. ध्यान रहे कि लू लगने पर पसीना नहीं आता है.
* लू लगने पर आँखों में जलन भी होती है.
* लू लगने के कारण अचानक बेहोशी व अंततः रोगी की मौत तक हो सकती है.
* इसमें निम्न रक्तचाप और लिवर-किडनी में सोडियम पोटैशियम का संतुलन बिगड़ जाता है. इसलिए बेहोशी भी आ सकती है. इसके अलावा ब्रेन या हार्ट स्ट्रोक की स्थिति भी बन सकती है.
* इस दौरान शरीर का तापमान एकदम से बढ़ जाता है. अक्सर बुखार बहुत ज्यादा मसलन 105 या 106 डिग्री फॉरनहाइट तक पहुंच जाता है.
* हाथ और पैरों के तलुओं में जलन-सी होती रहती है

सामान्य उपचार

लू लगने वाले व्यक्ति को आसानी से कुछ सामान्य उपचार के जरिए भी बचाया जा सकता है. कुछ छोटे-मोटे आसन उपायों पर नजर डालिए-
* जब भी बाहर गर्मी चरम पर हो तो कम से कम बाहर निकलकर लू से बचा जा सकता है. लेकिन यदि बाहर जाना आवश्यक हो तो अधिक से अधिक पानी पीकर निकलें. ध्यान रहे कि खाली पेट न निकलें.
* पीड़ित व्यक्ति को सबसे पहले छांव में लायें. फिर उसके लिए हवा का इंतजाम करें. गर्मी के कारण शरीर का तापमान हुई वृद्धि, छाया में लाने से तापमान सामान्य आना शुरु हो जाता है.
* उसव्यक्ति को नमक शक्कर और पानी का घोल मुँह से पिलायें, उसके कपड़े निकालकर सिर्फ अंदरूनी वस्त्र रखें. बेहतरी के लिए शरीर पर हल्का सा गर्म पानी भी छिड़क सकते हैं.
* आप चाहें तो गीली चादर में लपेटकर भी तापमान को कम करने का प्रयास कर सकते हैं.
* हाथ पैर की मालिश करें जिससे रक्त संचरण प्रभावित होता है.
* संभव हो तो बर्फ के टुकड़े कपड़े में लपेटकर गर्दन, बगलों और जांघों पर रखे. इससे गर्मी जल्दी निकलती है.
* धूप में घर से बाहर निकलें तो छतरी का इस्तेमाल करें. नंगे बदन और नंगे पैर धूप में ना खड़े हों.
* तरल पदार्थों के रूप में आप नींबू पानी, आम पना, छाछ, लस्सी, नारियल पानी, बेल या नींबू का शर्बत, खस का शर्बत जैसे तरल पदार्थों का उपयोग करते रहें.
* ढीले और सूती कपड़े पहनना ज्यादा उचित होता है.
* अचानक से गर्मी से एकदम ठंडे कमरे में ना जाएं.
* जितना ज्यादा हो सके हरी सब्जियों का सेवन करें. खीरा, ककड़ी, लौकी, तौरी आदि का भरपूर सेवन करें.
* यदि आपके पास सुविधा हो तो ठंडे वातानुकूलित कमरे में रहें.
* इमली के गूदे को हाथ पैरों पर मलें.
* शरीर का तापमान तेज होने पर सिर पर ठंडी पट्टी रखें.
* घर से बाहर निकलते समय जेब में कटा प्याज रखें.
