This most serious form of heat injury, heatstroke, can occur if your body temperature rises to 104 F (40 C) or higher. The condition is most common in the summer months. Heatstroke requires emergency treatment. Untreated heatstroke can quickly damage your brain, heart, kidneys and muscles. The damage worsens the longer treatment is delayed, increasing your risk of serious complications or death. Causes-- Heatstroke can occur as a result of: ·Exposure to a hot environment. In a type of heatstroke, called nonexertional (classic) heatstroke, being in a hot environment leads to a rise in core body temperature. This type of heatstroke typically occurs after exposure to hot, humid weather, especially for prolonged periods. It occurs most often in older adults and in people with chronic illness. ·Strenuous activity. Exertional heatstroke is caused by …


Spiders are air breathing arthropods that have eight legs and chelicerae with fangs that inject venom. They are the largest order of arachnids and rank seventh in total species diversity among all other orders of organisms. Spiders are found worldwide on every continent except for Antarctica, and have become established in nearly every habitat with the exceptions of air and sea colonization. More than 43,000 different species of spiders are found in the world. Of these , only a small number are said to be dangerous, and less than 30 have been responsible for human deaths. Some of the Homoeopathic medicines prepared from spiders are given below.Their source and clinical indications are included.

Fish are the oldest of the vertebrate groups and have the greatest number of species at around 33, 100 currently identified. They live almost anywhere there is enough water , from the highest mountain streams right down to the deepest ocean abyss. They are foundin both fresh water and sea water. Almost all are cold blooded, able to turn the coldest most uninviting waters into areas of high productivity. Body is streamlined, provided with both paired and  unpaired fins. Respiration is done by gills. Homoeopathic medicines are prepared from plants and its parts, animals including mammals, chemicals,nosodes, sacrcodes, immaterial energies, and from synthetic products. Some of the important medicines prepared from fishes are given below.

The mammals are the class of vertebrate animals characterized by the production of milk in females for the nourishment of young, from mammary glands present on most species and specialized skin glands in monotremes that seep or ooze milk. Other characters are-the presence of hair or fur, specialized teeth, three minute bones within the ear, the presence of a neocortex region in the brain, endothermic or warm blooded bodies etc. The brain regulates the endothermic and circulatory systems , including a four chambered heart. Most mammals give birth to live young but a few , monotremes, lay eggs. Mammals encompass some 5500 species, including humans, distributed in about 1200 genera, 152 families up to 46 orders, though this varies with the classification scheme. Homoeopathic medicines are prepared from plants and its parts, animals including mammals, chemicals, nosodes, sacrcodes, immaterial energies, and from synthetic products.
