The days are longer and longer, they start with birdsong and the evenings smell of warm warm soil and freshly cut grass. And the holidays will be here soon. I don't know if it is possible for the world to slow down even more at the moment, but for me, the holidays mean just that relaxation and well-being.
It tempts to stay outside, to draw energy from the sun and the surrounding nature.
But warm days also bring with them some pitfalls - such as sunburn or sunburn. Both are similar - malaise, weakness, unsteady gait, decreased concentration. You may have a headache or feel an urge to vomit, and in more serious cases, a fever.
The heat is much more insidious than the two. Sometimes it is difficult to remember what preceded him. Unlike the sunburn, the fault is not the excess of the sun's rays, but the long-term stay in the overheated space and the lack of fluids. The body's natural thermoregulation fails and the heat-weakened organism loses its natural abilities. Sunburn irritates the brain and its membranes.
Both sunburn and sunburn are dangerous, especially for children, the elderly and the sick. Keep in mind that if you are unsure, it is always a good idea to consult a doctor and call an ambulance. A more severe course of dehydration requires hospitalization.
First, remove the affected person to a cool, ventilated and shaded area and then start dealing with dehydration. Dehydration for the body means the thickening of body fluids. They distribute important nutrients and oxygen throughout the body and at the same time import pollutants from it. In more severe cases, organ damage, reduced blood pressure and thus no blood supply to the limbs can also occur. Other symptoms of dehydration include dark urine, dry mouth and a white coating on the tongue.
The recipe for home preparation of rehydration solution is very simple - mix 1 teaspoon of salt and 8 teaspoons of sugar with a liter of boiled and chilled drinking water. An adult should drink 500 ml per hour, a child 250 ml.
Later, you can add citrus juice, blackcurrant fruit, a few mint leaves or lemon balm to the water, or make white or green tea - all of which have the ability to cool the body.
Tiles, a bath or a shower will also help cool the body. The water should be lukewarm, not explicitly icy, so that the body does not suffer shock. If you are only wiping the patient with a damp cloth, always walk from the fingers of the limbs towards the heart.
Hydrates - flower water - are an excellent and at the same time gentle way to cool the body. The best choice will be pink or lavender. Both hydrate the skin and hair and soothe irritated skin.
Nausea can be solved by drinking chamomile tea or peppermint.
