How to be safe from a brain stroke in summer?

brain stroke

Introduction (Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)


Some people think that stroke occurs only in cold weather, and it is okay in hot weather. However, modern medical research has found that summer is also a season of the high incidence of stroke, so it should not be paralyzed. When the temperature rises above 32℃, the incidence of stroke can be 66% higher than usual, and as the temperature rises, the risk will increase. Why does a stroke also occur when the temperature is high? 

There are two reasons:

One is that when the temperature rises above 32°C, the body's heat removal mainly depends on the evaporation of sweat. Excessive sweating will cause serious consumption of body fluids. If you do not pay attention to timely or insufficient hydration, blood will be concentrated, blood flow will slow down, and thrombosis will easily form. If thrombus blocks the common carotid artery that nourishes the brain, the brain will be ischemic. The climate is hot, the body surface capillaries are dilated, and the blood is mostly concentrated on the body surface. The brain is already ischemic. If thrombosis occurs and the cerebrovascular is blocked, the brain is more ischemic and strokes are more likely to occur.

The second is a lot of sweating. Although the body temperature can be lowered, this can only be achieved by the subcutaneous blood circulation 5 times higher than usual blood flow, which will not only increase the burden on the heart but also increase blood pressure and prone to hemorrhagic stroke.


How should we prevent stroke in summer? (Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)


Pay attention to the prevention and treatment of primary diseases. Hypertension and hyperlipidemia are the root causes of stroke. According to statistics, more than 90% of stroke patients have high blood pressure and hyperlipidemia. Therefore, under the guidance of doctors, attention should be paid to the rational use of antihypertensive drugs and lipid-lowering drugs. Eat more foods that can soften blood vessels and lower blood lipids, and scientifically Arrange summer life and pay attention to the combination of work and rest.

Avoid being greedy for cold. The blood vessels of the elderly are often hardened, and accidents are prone to occur in hot and cold weather, so you should not be too greedy for cold. The air conditioner should regulate the room temperature. The temperature difference between indoor and outdoor should not exceed 7℃~8℃. The air conditioner should not be used for too long and the number of times of entering and exiting the air-conditioning room should not be too much. It is best for the old and the weak to shake the fan by hand.

"Drink less frequently" to prevent blood concentration. People often sweat profusely in the middle of summer, especially after work and exercise, they consume a lot of body fluids. If they are not hydrated in time, blood concentration, blood flow slows down, and thrombosis occurs, which not only easily blocks blood vessels in the brain but also causes strokes due to cerebral ischemia. It is also easy to block the coronary arteries and cause angina pectoris. It is more likely to cause urine concentration to affect the elimination of toxins by the kidneys and form urinary tract stones. Therefore, the old and the weak should pay attention to drinking water scientifically in midsummer. The elderly have a low ability to respond to a lack of water in the body. If it is too late to drink water until they are thirsty, they should adopt the method of "drinking less frequently". This is because human body fluids are gradually consumed, so you can't drink too much water at a time, otherwise, it will cause "water poisoning", gastrointestinal discomfort, dizziness, and other symptoms. The elderly and the weak are less active and have relatively less water content in their bodies. A daily supplement of 2500 ml of water is sufficient.

Pay attention to the signs of stroke. Before the onset of stroke, there will often be transient visual impairment or blindness, sudden headache, dizziness, slurred speech, numbness, frequent yawning, drowsiness, and other abnormal phenomena. You should be highly vigilant and stay in bed immediately. It is best to go to the hospital for examination Seek medical attention.

Pay attention to usual health care. People with cardiovascular disease should not get up suddenly after waking up every day and should stop in bed for a few minutes before getting out of bed slowly. According to American medical research, regular consumption of potassium-rich foods has a protective effect on arteries and blood vessels and can effectively prevent stroke.
