For awhile I had a guilty pleasure of eating cookies or any type of sweet every week. One cookie once it awhile is okay, but eating many cookies or sweets without moderation each week; there's a health problem brewing that's beyond that eye and I knew it.

The body is always working to keep the internal body temperature at around 97-99 degrees F. The body has a natural ability to adjust itself to any given environment to maintain balance. Some people adjust easily to temperature changes while others can experience symptoms of over heating. It all depends upon the person's current state of health and how "hard" the body needs to work to reach balance. If the body is fed acidic food, is being pushed to it's limit daily, and inflammation is present within the body, it will not be as easy for the body to adjust to higher temperature change.
