5 Surprising Foods that Will Keep You Cool this Summer

As much as you would like, an ice cream can't help you cool down in the scorching heat of this summer. Although one may argue that one feels just fine after an ice cream, the truth is that it's only temporary. Cooling foods are what you should have as they help to cool heat and cleanse toxins from the body.

Here are some of the foods that help cool down your body naturally:

1) Cucumber - Not surprisingly, being 'cool as a cucumber' actually holds true. Cucumbers are fruits that help keep the body hydrated. Keeping your body cool during hot days is vital to your health as it can help prevent a number of complications such as heat strokes and dehydration. Munching on cucumber slices and hummus is a good way to beat the heat and stay cool.

2) Watermelon - This quintessential beach fruit is yet another one which would help you beat the heat. This seasonal fruit acts like an internal air-conditioner, and is rich in water, helping in reducing body heat to a large extent while keeping you hydrated.

3) Peaches - Peaches are not only delicious but are very rich in vitamins A and C, which help in keeping your body cool. Besides, these vitamins also help in maintaining healthy skin and provide useful calories to the body.

4) Apples - Apples are fruits that help to fill you up and cool down your body at the same time. They contain about 4g of fiber and around 95 calories and are enriched with a soluble fiber called pectin, which stops hunger and helps in shedding weight.

5) Pineapple - Along with banana, cucumber, and some other fruits, pineapple helps to make a healthy smoothie. These ingredients have cooling properties, which hydrate the body and help to clear the heat. Also, pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which reduces inflammation in the body.

THE DEVASTATING ALLERGY AND ITS MULTITUDE OF PROBLEMS.

Hum log mix is analog and definitely better than mixtard which is human insulin. With analogue you won' t gain weight n there are very less chances of hypoglycemia moreover analogue can injected immediately before meals. What I suggest you is to make cetapin twice a day, weight for a month n the if not controlled increase the dose of insulin.

Hi lybrate-user, thanks for the query. Please do not anticipate about disease. This will bring only fear and anxiety. The pain in neck can be related to cervical spondylosis. Please investigate it with an x-ray cervical neck (ap and lat view). For acidity I would suggest to have some regular exercise schedule. As you might have sedentary life more. Less of exercise can bring such symptoms. Also please investigate your vitamin d and vitamin b levels. This will help you know better about your health. Kindly do the investigations and followup.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring either due to lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both in t2 dm. Since insulin is an essential hormone required for metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, it has to be made available daily in a diabetic patient. Further if blood sugar levels are not maintained near normal then there are serious long term complications affecting eyes (retina), small and large blood vessels, nerves, lower limbs, kidneys and heart. It does not spare any vital organ. So treatment for life time is essential. Along with drugs diet control and exercise are also very essential. So my suggestion to you is please do not have negative thoughts about taking medicines, consider that as an essential part of the routine and follow a healthy life style and live better. There is no easy way out.
