ICICI Lombard GIC: Suggests Check Your Health Needs This Monsoon!
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. 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.
