Extinguish the heat

You woke up one fine morning and find that your throat has a burning sensation. Your lips starts to turn dry shortly and the skins are starting to peel off. You are in immediate need for a lip balm to help prevent the lips from peeling. Ever had this kind of feeling? This was what happened to me yesterday when I woke up and found that my day will not be fine.

I am very prone to heatiness ever since I left secondary school (I have no idea why but it seems that my immune system is getting weaker). That’s why I always try to avoid fried and oily food at all times and I certainly have no carvings for it as the consequence of eating these food will be too much a price to pay for. It used to be fine as long as I watch my intake but nowadays, just eating a little will cause my body to develop heatiness.

There might be several reasons why our body is prone to heatiness and here are a few I happened to come across while reading an article recently:

  • Spending too much time in an air-conditioned environment, thus leaving our body and skin exposed to the dry air and lost of body fluid
  • Lack of intake of water — Our body needs at least 2 to 3 litres of water daily, preferably plain water
  • Dehydration

The remedy
To help prevent from falling sick because of heatiness, I have some *secret recipe* that may help to greatly reduce the body heatiness:

  1. Eat lots of star fruits or water chestnut
  2. Buy & drink Eno — helps to relieves indigestion and heatiness
  3. Boil and drink barley seeds with green bean seeds — the most effective method
  4. Use lip balm (oil based) every now and then to keep your lips moisturize

The above will definitely help to reduce our body heat but in all cases, please don’t over consume any of the suggested remedy.
