Ice Pack Heat Stroke Home Remedy
My family has always taught me that heat stroke is something to treat quickly and with ice. They have told me that one of the quickest ways to cool your body down is to make up small bags of ice using zip lock bags or whatever is handy and then place them at the back of your neck, in your groin area and on your chest and back. Leave the ice there at least ten minutes if not a bit longer to assure you cool down adequately.

Eating Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Keeping our bodies well fortified and hydrated is the most natural home remedy for heat stroke. If we know we are going to be spending time in a warm or hot climate we can prepare our bodies through eating lost of fresh fruits and vegetables. We should also drink a lot of water to help our body stay hydrated.
Reducing Sodium Intake
My uncle had a history of getting heat strokes. Our family researched various home remedies for heat stroke until we finally found what worked best for him. He was eating a diet high in salt and thus his chances for getting heat stroke were always high. Once he reduced his sodium intake he stopped getting heat stroke so often. Excessive sodium impacts the functioning of our sweat production and leaves us quite vulnerable to heat stroke if we live in a hot climate. Simply reduce your salt intake as a natural home remedy for heat stroke.
Avoiding Alcohol Heat Stroke Home Remedy
If you are vulnerable to heat stroke my suggestion is to abstain from consuming any alcoholic beverage. Drinking alcohol increases the heat in your body making you more susceptible to heat stroke. Alcohol is also very dehydrating which also makes your body much more prone to heat stroke. Simply avoid alcohol as a home remedy for preventing heat stroke.
Cool Shower and Loose Clothes
Take off your clothes get into a cool shower for a heat stroke home remedy treatment! After you take your cool shower lightly dry off and only dress in loose light clothing preferably cotton based material.

Eventually I started to feel better. This is one of the best home remedies for heat stroke.
