Coconut water and sunstroke

Coconut water – the fluid of life

Tender coconut water is the natural isotonic beverage with almost the same level of electrolyte balance as we have in our blood.

Here is how it is excellent for the summer:

Oral rehydration medium – high in magnesium, potassium, saline and natural sugar. Popular with athletes.
Keeps the body cool.
Application on the body prevents prickly heat and summer boils and subsides the rashes.

It can be used (in emergencies) as a substitute for blood plasma.
The reason for this is that coconut water (the water found in coconuts – not to be confused with coconut milk, which comes from the flesh of the coconut) is sterile and has an ideal pH level. Coconut water is liquid endosperm – it surrounds the embryo and provides nutrition.

Keeps the body cool.

Lemon and sunstroke

Extremely great for the summer, it is worth squeezing a lemon to make a fresh-fruit drink because lemon ranks high as a health food. It contains very few calories and provides a little bit of vitamin C.

You can get rid of dizziness or nausea, which is common during the summer due to the scorching sun, by sucking on lemon or sipping its juice.

Lemon juice also makes an effective thirst-quenching drink in fevers, measles, and pox. Lemon is regarded as a youth restorative.

Health for all - World health day


World Health Day this year's theme is "Health for all"

Health For All means that health is to be brought within reach of everyone in a given country.

And by "health" is meant a personal state of well being, not just the availability of health services – a state of health that enables a person to lead a socially and economically productive life.

Health For All implies the removal of the obstacles to health – that is to say, the elimination of malnutrition, ignorance, contaminated drinking water and unhygienic housing – quite as much as it does the solution of purely medical problems such as a lack of doctors, hospital beds, drugs and vaccines.

World Health Day’s message is simple: giving people access to healthcare without the prospect of financial hardship.

WHO asserts, that countries which invest in universal healthcare will make a “sound investment in their human capital”; but also “protects countries from epidemics, reduces poverty and the risk of hunger, drives economic growth.
