The June blog party is hosted by Kristine Brown of Luna Herb Company on the topic of herbs to beat the Summer heat.   Those of you who are familiar with Chinese medicine know that there are two categories of herbs, “Herbs for Summerheat” and “Herbs for Summerheat Damp,”  the latter of which is a problem on the US East coast and southeast, as it is in southern and eastern China.  People in dry summer weather will find other strategies for beating the heat.

Kristine’s article “Beating the Heat of Summer” discusses the symptoms of heat exhaustion, making electrolyte solutions and preventing heat stroke.
