    The scorching summer is back, the heat is on and the evil sun blotting high temperatures to the highest level of mercury, summer seems to completely drain us out. Temperatures have been sizzling high and humidity levels have mounted to between 70 and 80 per cent. Every one of us feels dehydrated and low on energy in such a climate.

    Hydration is essential for every individual- "Drinking throughout the day in general is important, too. It's just as important for someone who is working at a computer all day [to drink water], as it is for somebody who is running a marathon." But it's not just water that hydrates you. As with every season, the nature has provided us with a surfeit of foods to help us keep cool in the warm months to come. Foods that are available this season naturally contain the properties our bodies need to stay cool and hydrated during the warm months of summer.

    Our body needs cooling foods that will balance our diet and keep our energy level stable.

    Here are 10 best cooling foods for the sizzling hot summer.

    Fresh Fruits: It is important to minimize the intake of dried fruits and increase the intake of fresh foods. Fresh fruits are nutritious and refreshing. Many seasonal fruits like mangoes, litchi, water melons, strawberry and jamuns are available in summer. These fruits are juicy and can be had as snacks to beat the heat. 'Seasonal fruits like water melon have high water content and higher cooling properties that help to beat the heat.'

    Curd/ Yogurt: Curd is a delicious coolant. Curd is excellent as it increases friendly bacteria in the gut and improves digestion and boosts immunity. You can make delicious - chilled spicy buttermilk, a glass of lassi or chachh and raita. You can also add fruits to the curds to make a lip-smacking and wholesome dessert or prepare smoothie during the summer season.

    Coconut Water: The more you consume nariyal pani, the less you will have summer problems .An inexpensive coconut is full of health benefits and has wonderful cooling properties. It composes many naturally occurring bioactive enzymes, simple sugars, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals which help to keep the body well hydrated. In addition to that, there is evidence to suggest that coconut water has cancer fighting and anti-ageing properties as well.

    Cucumber: This summer food is very rich in water and effective in providing cooling effect to the body. This crunchy vegetable costs little, has lots of fibre that can help keep constipation at bay. It can make each of your bites crunchier and help you stay cool as a cucumber!

    Raw Mango: In the summer season, raw mango is a special fruit and is extremely good to prevent sunstrokes and weakness. Raw mango juice also known as aam panna can help balance electrolytes in the body. You can also have raw mango in any form like adding it in bhel, salads or making a dish out of it.

    Mint: Mint is a simple, easily available, inexpensive herb which you can add to your curd to make pudina raita or have it in the form of chutneys besides using it in dips. The best thing about it is that you can grow it in a small pot at home for your use. Though it does not help bring down the body temperature, we love it because of the delicious and refreshing taste.

    Green Veggies: You can stock your refrigerator with a wide variety of summer vegetables like onions, brinjal, bottle gourd, celery, tomatoes and cucumber as they are very nutritious and low in calories. 'It is important to have seasonal vegetables as the summer vegetable contains antioxidant properties that help to minimize skin damage caused due to exposure to sun.'

    Onions: Onions have amazing cooling properties. You can add it to your curries, dips, raitas, salads and chutneys to help keep you cool. The red onions, in particular, are very rich in quercetin, which is a natural anti-allergen. Having lots of onions can provide you protection against sunstroke.

    Lime Water: Citrus has an incredible cooling effect on the body and also promotes detoxification. Everyone knows how important it is to drink a ton of water every day, but plain ol' H2O can be boring. Time and time again experts recommend adding lemon to your water not only for its skin and immune-boosting benefits, but because it actually encourages you to drink more water overall.

    Ice Creams: summers can never be fun without ice creams. Ice candies or those tempting sundaes bring back the child in you. Add some fresh fruits to them to make them sound less sinful and indulge your taste buds once in a while. Though you have the option of heading for the nearest ice cream parlour, you can try making some at home as well. Kids will love you for it!

    As years passes so fast. In no time, those bad habits that you have now can do big damage to your mind and body later on. Whether it's skipping breakfast or eating too fast, drinking a little too much (and too often) or spending way too many hours planted in front of the TV so you have to pay for them later.

    Poor health also means more time lost at work, less quality recreational time, and even shorter lifespan. But in this modern day, people have a mindset that takes good health for granted. One can suffer from years of aches and pains, and would just ignore them, and then feel so surprised when one finds out one has developed a serious chronic disease. Majorities would usually leave their health to the hand of the doctors, relying on the advanced medical technology, medical drugs when they fall sick. We have the choice to live a healthy lifestyle, but many choose to live just for today, enjoy life, and most of the time end up suffering in pain with chronic diseases and illnesses.

    There are many habits prevalent today which can lead to many health problems. It is important to understand what these are and how the issues can be addressed. We should work on putting an end to the bad habits now, so you don't pay for them later.

    Common Unhealthy Lifestyle Practices

    Lifestyle has an impact on whether you lead a healthy life or not. Because of the importance it plays, it is important to identify the basic unhealthy habits of a typical lifestyle. There are many factors contributing to the degeneration of health among many people today. We live in a terribly polluted world. We are all exposed to thousands of toxins and chemicals every day at work, home, in the air, and in the food that we eat and water we drink. In addition, we are eating more processed and canned foods than ever before in human history and we constantly abuse our bodies with pharmaceuticals. We found fast food at every corner. And video games and TV have led the majority of teens to spend countless hours in front of the television instead of playing outdoor games or doing physical activity. The result of all of these are overweight and obese and many chronic diseases.

    These are:

    1. Smoking and Drinking:

    Nicotine is an addictive substance which is found in cigarettes. That is what makes it so hard for people to quit smoking. When they just stop smoking, there is high chance that they would experience some withdrawal symptoms, which means that the body will be craving for the nicotine. That's why there are so many smokers who fail to quit.

    This would top any list of unhealthy lifestyle choices. Smoking has numerous negative effects on the body. It can cause many diseases like Emphysema, lungs cancer, the throat and the mouth diseases, birth defects and other ailments of the respiratory system are direct results of smoking. The warnings on cigarette packages were placed to warn people about the real dangers caused by smoking. The smoke produced from the burning tobacco leaves of cigarettes contains thousands of chemicals and a majority of those which are harmful to the body.

    2. Exercise:

    Combining too much eating with no or little exercise is a recipe for disaster. In fact, the lack of exercise is one of the leadingcauses of early death. Lack of physical exercise also weakens our muscles and exposes them to physical injuries. Also, irregular or no exercising regularly worsens the immune system and drive our body towards becoming sick frequently.

    An unhealthy lifestyle, which does not consist of regular workouts, is the major cause of bad cholesterol. People, who do not exercise for some time, never remain fit and healthy. Due to improper blood circulation which occurs because of unhealthy lifestyles, the heart's health never remains in good condition.

    3. False Eating:-

    Eating too much leads us to obesity, hypertension, diabetes etc. On the contrary, eating too less will deprive of nutrients and will ultimately affect the immune system.

    Another major source of toxic exposure is the foods we eat. Herbicides, pesticides and fungicides are sprayed on our foods while they are growing and after harvest to prevent spoilage and improve marketability. Approximately 90% of the drugs given to animals have not been approved by the government. Half of the antibiotics produced in America annually are given to animals has a matter of routine. 60 to 99% of the cattle slaughtered in this country were given synthetic hormones, primarily estrogens during their growth. It is no longer a question that antibiotic resistance, hormone exposure, and toxin exposure are having a negative effect on our health.

    Poor dietary choices will impact your health. Likewise, it is very difficult, if not impossible to lose weight and keep it off when one option for an unhealthy diet. Processed foods and junk foods are, in short, a killer and they are reducing people's lifespan. Processed foods have a high in fats and salt content and are filled with preservatives and colouring and other bad chemicals.

    4. Taking too much stress and lack of sound sleep:

    Stress is a natural body reaction. Our lives are already becoming stressful and there are two primary stresses - Workplace tension and Family Tension. Now, I have not seen anyone who takes the family tension to the workplace. But we all have accustomed of bringing the work tension to home which ruins the family harmony. In principal, our family environment should sooth the senses and helps us ease out the workplace worries. However, once we start bringing the outer stress to our home, we do not have a place to escape.

    It is during sleep that the body repairs the cells that have been damaged through the day of activity. Obviously, it is also the time that the body gets its rest. But some people do not give that much importance to it as they should. If you compromise with sound sleep, you feel sluggish and weak.

    Healthy Lifestyle Changes for Leading a Healthy Life

    Don't smoke.
    Control your weight- prevents many diseases like heart diseases,kidney diseases, diabetes mellitus, etc.
    Drink alcohol in moderation- not more than 60ml for male and 30ml for a female in a day.
    Exercise regularly- a brisk walk, jogging, running dancing etc.
    Get a regular health check-up.
    Drink 10-12 glasses of water every day.
    Eat from good nutritional sources- include all 5 food groups.
    Skip the soda-it adds empty calories.
    Deal intelligently with stress.

    Keep in mind that any lifestyle change is a 'work in progress' and lasting changes take time.

    Milk tea vs black tea vs green tea: which is better for your health?

    Let's start with an interesting fact: all types of tea, be it green or black, comes from the same plant, camellia sinensis. The difference only lies in processing and oxidation. So how can one be better than the other you ask? let's find out.

    1. Fluoride content
    When it comes to fluoride content both green and black teas score high, while milk tea sadly loses out. Green and black teas are good for your teeth and bones, although black tea has higher fluoride content (0.2-0.5mg as compared to 0.3-0.4mg in green tea). Its best to have your black tea with tap water as it increases the fluoride content up to 0.9mg.

    2. Antioxidant content
    Yet again green tea and black both have high antioxidant content that helps in preventing cancer, but green is the clear winner over. Milk tea loses again as the milk in it effects the absorption of these antioxidants by your body. Green tea is enriched with a particular type of catechin (flavonoid) called egcg, which regulates gene activity in cancer cells, and may even prevent cancer growth.

    3. Caffeine content
    Both black and green teas have different amounts of caffeine in them. Green tea has lesser caffeine content than black tea- 9-41mg/cup in comparison to 14-61mg/cup. So if you want to have an energetic morning then black tea is the one for you, but if you want to relax your blood vessels and just enjoy a soothing drink, choose green tea. Milk tea unfortunately does not have a calming or an energising effect.

    Benefits for your heart:
    Black tea is probably the healthier option if you want to derive cardiovascular benefits from your daily cuppa. While green tea has abundant egcg which creates a lining along your blood vessels to reduce stress, black tea offers more benefits. Black tea can improve the function of your blood vessels if you suffer from coronary artery disease. Apart from that, both can lower the levels of harmful cholesterol. There's no evidence that supports that milk tea can be beneficial for your heart.

    So in the end it's your call to choose black or green tea, whichever works best for you. Try avoiding milk tea as the milk steals away the essential health benefits of tea. Just remember to have no more than 10 cups of green tea a day, and no more than 4 cups of black.

    If you would like to consult with me privately, please go ahead.

    Eating fruit

    We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths.

    It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and *when* to eat the fruits.

    What is the correct way of eating fruits?

    It means not eating fruits after your meals!

    Fruits should be eaten on an empty stomach

    If you eat fruits on empty stomach, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

    Fruit is the most important food.

    Let's say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit.

    The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so due to the bread taken before the fruit.

    In the meantime the whole meal of bread & fruit rots and ferments and turns to acid.

    The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.

    So please eat your fruits on an *empty stomach* or before your meals!

    You have heard people complaining:

    Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc. Etc.

    Actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach.

    The fruit mixes with the putrefying of other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat!

    Greying hair, balding, nervous outburst and dark circles under the eyes all these will *not* happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

    There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert shelton who did research on this matter.

    If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the * secret * of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

    When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only * fresh* fruit juice, not from the cans, packs or bottles.

    Don't even drink juice that has been heated up.

    Don't eat cooked fruits because you don't get the nutrients at all.

    You only get its taste.
    Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

    But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice.

    If you should drink the fresh fruit juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.

    You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse or detoxify your body.

    Just eat fruits and drink fresh fruit juice throughout
    The 3 days.
    And you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!

    Tiny but mighty.
    This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin e & fiber.
    Its vitamin c content is twice that of an orange.

    An apple a day keeps the doctor away?
    Although an apple has a low vitamin c content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin c thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

    Protective fruit.
    Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging and free radicals.

    Sweetest medicine.
    Taking 2-4oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

    Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system.

    They are also a key source of lycopene the cancer fighting oxidant.
    Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin c & potassium.

    Guava & papaya:
    Top awards for vitamin c. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin c content.
    Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation.
    Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.
