Beat The Heat with Pharmacist Doug

News

It is HOT out there! You must pay close attention to your body to keep cool. Pharmacist Doug has tips to help stay cool.

  • Stay Hydrated 
    • Our body uses the water you drink to make sweat, which in turn cools your body. Also, without the proper minerals/electrolytes, the body cannot thermoregulate properly. Cool not ice cold water!
  • Get Low
    • Because heat rises stay close to the ground. Hang out in the lower floors if you have a two-story house, spend time in the basement. Perhaps, put your mattress on the floor instead of sleeping on the bed frame
  • Get Wet
    • Cool water is a great way to decrease your body temperature. Wet paper towels, wash clothes, etc… Remember Cool, not ice cold. The cold might shock your body sending it into a reaction that will cause your body to increase heat.
  • Cool your pressure points
    • Your neck, your ankles, your wrist, behind the knees, your groin or your armpits. Remember cool compresses not cold!
  • Refrigerate your skin care products
