This week we talk all about sweat and heat liberation.
Sweating is a very important tool that the human body and most mammals use to eliminate unwanted stuff. In this case, the body primarily is eliminating heat and toxins via liquid sweat.
When we exercise vigorously or it is a hot day or we find ourselves overheating while fighting an infection, sweat will pour from our skin through glands and an endothermic reaction. The water that is released caries heat from the body with it. It evaporates into the air liberating the heat and thus cooling the body.
In this sweated liquid are electrolytes and toxins. Primarily, the sweat fluid has a natural release of small amounts of sodium and to an even lesser extent, potassium and calcium. This fluid will also facilitate the release of chemicals that the body does not like….. plus a few articles in a literature review.

We are seeing more cases of tick exposure and potential infections over the past few weeks as everyone is heading out to the mountains and beaches for vacation and regular life. Every spring and summer, many children present to our clinic with tick bites and other insect issues. While most bites are benign, some are not. Being aware of the realities and risks of tick exposure will help us make good decisions regarding medical care needs. Ticks are little 8 legged creatures (Images
