TAIPEI (TVBS News) — Taiwan's humid summer heat led to 136 hospital visits from July 1 to July 5 due to heat illnesses, including heat strokes, exhaustion, and cramps. Heat stroke symptoms include higher body temperature, headache, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, and unconsciousness.

To combat summer heat illnesses, traditional Chinese medicine doctors suggest staying hydrated, consuming lighter diets, and avoiding overworking during summer. According to traditional Chinese medicine doctors, there are two types of heat strokes: the "yang" heat stroke and the "yin" heat stroke.

 

The yang heat stroke occurs outdoors when individuals with high body temperature perspire heavily. The yin heat stroke occurs due to poor thermoregulation, often when people transition between hot and cold environments, such as going from outdoors to air-conditioned rooms.

Traditional Chinese medicine doctors recommend changing eating habits, reducing the consumption of cold sweet beverages, blow drying the hair immediately after a shower, and focusing on lower body muscle training to dehumidify the body.

Individuals must take precautionary measures to stay safe and cool as the summer heat persists. Improper handling of heat strokes can have fatal consequences.
