Easy Herbal Remedies

sunstroke

When I was out in Colorado visiting family I mistook the intensity of the sun and the heat and collapsed on the Eagle Rock Shelter Trail in the high desert in between Hotchkiss and Delta Colorado. I was fascinated by the contrast between the lushness near the Gunnison River and the desert in the Delta region and was having fun taking pictures. I had only been clear from Covid for a week, not at all ready for a hiking trip! Note to self, you are not 20 years old anymore – no more assuming you can handle it!

At any rate, a rescue off the trail, an ambulance to Delta Hospital, and recovering now for a week at home, and I’m still wiped out and exhausted. I’m told it could last for weeks – and that I had pushed my Covid recovery back by getting the heat stroke. (Not surprising by the way I feel).

This is a reminder to HYDRATE in the heat! Drink electrolytes if you plan on being out in the sun, use sunscreen, and wear a hat! Don’t do what I did and overestimate your response to the heat.

Be Careful out there!
