     When the body cannot function properly anymore, one experiences nausea, rapid breathing, palpitations, headache, and the skin appears flushed but dry at the same time. Heatstroke can strike at a 40 °C temperature or more, and if not managed properly, heatstroke can be fatal or may lead to damage to the brain, lungs, kidney and heart.

1. To prevent heatstroke, keeping the body hydrated is a must! 

     Aside from water, fresh juice can keep you refreshed this dry season. Aside from being a great source of refreshment, fresh juice is your way to a healthier you. The fresher the juice, the more beneficial it is to your body. And the best way to get the freshest juice is to make your own at home.

     At home, you can choose which fruit or vegetable you prefer. Fruits like watermelon, cucumber, pear, apples, oranges and pineapple are best in keeping the body hydrated. You can even add herbs, like basil and mint, for a cooling effect. Lemon, calamansi and kamias are loaded with Vitamin C that can help maintain the body’s heat effective coping mechanism.

2. For an even healthier drink, add leafy greens! 

     These contain nutrients that aid in the proper functioning of the body’s temperature control system; or add celery, beets or carrots which naturally contain sodium that can help ward off heat exhaustion.
