7 Basic Tips To Prevent Heat Stroke This Summer

Heat stroke is a condition caused when the body temperature rises very high, above the normal temperature level (40 degrees Celsius and higher). Heat stroke is much more serious than heat exhaustion because it could cost you your life. People with heat stroke may suffer from fever, seizures, or may also go into a coma. It affects the brain, heart, kidneys and muscles very quickly. The damage on your body might even get severe and fatal if treatment is delayed. But the good news is, heat stroke is predictable and above all avoidable. There are two types of heat stroke; 1. Classic or non-exercise-induced heat stroke. Which occurs when the person is not exercising or physically generating heat. 2. Exertional or activity-induced heat stroke. Which occurs when the person exerts himself physically or generates heat. Basically anyone can get heat stroke, whether you are an athlete or a simple outdoor worker. Heat stroke is common especially during the summer. So, what are the warning signs of heat stroke? And how can you prevent getting heat stroke this summer? If you take the right precautions, you can easily prevent the risk of heat stroke.

4 Simple Steps to Getting Rid of a Migraine Fast Without Any Medicine

get rid of migraine

I have always been predisposed to the occasional migraine headache. Sometimes they are quite fleeting, a headache may come on quickly. I would take a nap and by the time I awaken, the headache is gone. Then there are other times when I get a forewarning in the form of light sensitivity or nausea. At the time of the latest occurrence, I had not had a migraine in months. I was hoping that the incidences had abated forever. I had grown accustomed to having continual good days and that day was no different, as so I thought. The sun came up and it started out as the most beautiful day I’d seen in a long time.  This day, there are errands to run, tasks to attend to and plans that were made weeks ago, that were waiting to be fulfilled. On this beautiful day, there was no intention of allowing anything to get in the way of completing my checklist. Not even a migraine headache. Although determined to stay focused on getting everything done before noon and before the heat of the day set in, I felt a bit unsettled. Moving as fast as I could, I simply wanted to […]

The environment and the intake procedure will feel familiar to you, but the first thing that you will notice that stands out is the chiropractic treatment table.

The elements of your visit to the chiropractor are: an initial intake, a physical exam, the required treatment and a follow-up plan. What does the initial intake consist of?

4 Drug-Free Long-Term Solutions for Chronic Back Pain

A survey conducted from 2014-15 shows that 16% of the Australian population have back problems. That’s 3.7 million people with ailing backs in Australia alone. In addition, experts estimate that 70 to 90% of the general population are bound to suffer from some form of lower back pain at a certain point in their lives. Some scientists attribute these mass incidents of back pain to the fact that our spine was originally designed for walking on all fours. Back then, the human spine comfortably arched like a bow to withstand the weight of our organs. It was the perfect design until we learned to stand up, which basically forced the spine to act like a column. And now, after millennia of evolution, we’re still equipped with a spinal column that seems like it hasn’t fully adjusted to the demands of bipedal life. Evolutionarily speaking, we seem to be trapped in a state of chronic back pain due to the very design of the human body. But all is not lost. This same design problem has been studied by modern scientists and physical therapists for years. And if human evolution has failed to provide relief for humanity’s back problems, perhaps human […]
