ICICI Lombard GIC: Suggests Check Your Health Needs This Monsoon! PR Newswire MUMBAI, June 26, 2012 MUMBAI, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- After Months of Heat, the sun Kissed Earth Finally Cools Down With First Showers. Yes! It's Rainy Season! It's Time to Drench, Have fun, Relish on Ice-Cream and Enjoy Consumption of Hot-Spicy Food It's true that the rainy season is a sure shot respite from the sizzling hot days, but it is equally notorious. This season brings with it a host of fungal, viral and bacterial infections. Common cold, cough, viral fever are the commonest health concerns. Stomach upset, malaria, jaundice, typhoid, cholera, food poisoning attack our immune system very easily during this season. While we cannot avoid getting drenched during monsoon, we can surely keep a watch on what we are eating. Monsoon diet is the right solution to avoid falling ill during such rainy days. To top it up, food combined with a good medical insurance can prove helpful. While a good diet that consists of essential nutrients has the capability to strengthen our immunity and fight against the incessant shower, a insurance policy can save you and your family in time of medical exigency that may occur during monsoon. Food high in sodium i.e. salt content can promote water retention and bloating, which in turn can cause high blood pressure. Body's digestive efficiency decreases during this season, hence intake of fatty foods such as fish or meat should be avoided.

After Months of Heat, the sun Kissed Earth Finally Cools Down With
First Showers. Yes! It's Rainy Season! It's Time to Drench, Have fun,
Relish on Ice-Cream and Enjoy Consumption of Hot-Spicy Food
It's true that the rainy season is a sure shot respite from the sizzling hot days,
but it is equally notorious. This season brings with it a host of fungal, viral and
bacterial infections. Common cold, cough, viral fever are the commonest
health concerns. Stomach upset, malaria, jaundice, typhoid, cholera, food
poisoning attack our immune system very easily during this season.
While we cannot avoid getting drenched during monsoon, we can surely keep a
watch on what we are eating. Monsoon diet is the right solution to avoid falling
ill during such rainy days. To top it up, food combined with a good
medical
insurance
can prove helpful. While a good diet that consists of essential
nutrients has the capability to strengthen our immunity and fight against the
incessant shower, a insurance policy can save you and your family in time of
medical exigency that may occur during monsoon.
Food high in sodium i.e. salt content can promote water retention and bloating,
which in turn can cause high blood pressure. Body's digestive efficiency
decreases during this season, hence intake of fatty foods such as fish or meat
should be avoided. Steamed salads, dry fruits such as oats, muesli are vital
sources for a healthy you during rainy season. Intake of bitter vegetables like
bitter gourd and herbs like basil is a sensible choice to prevent infections. Apart
from healthy food, a pocket friendly insurance policy i.e. a
health insurance
policy from a well known company like ICICI Lombard
(www.icicilombard.com) can offer comprehensive coverage to all members of
the family which can ensure their security. Just imagine; the combination of
healthy food + health insurance policy = Happy & Healthy Family!
So, a
healthcare insurance
can do wonders in not just saving one's expenses,
but it will be equally helpful in time of medical emergencies. So, may it be rainy
or any other season, maintaining good health and holding a good medical
health insurance policy from a reputed insurance company like ICICI Lombard
General Insurance can make life simpler and easier.
