You don't have to be defeated! Learning to minimize the effects of heat is the key.
Overheating can aggravate a multitude of symptoms. Increased fatigue, weakness, and visual disturbances are just a few of the problems that may occur when the body's interior temperature rises.
This may happen when the mercury climbs on a hot summer day. It can also occur during exercise or exposure to any hot environment anywhere such as saunas and hot tubs.
So, don't be discouraged by the heat of the summer months. Find the strategies that work best for you, because YOU CAN beat the heat!
