        i always drink lots of water and avoid diuretics (fluids that actually dehydrate rather than rehydrate) - coffee, tea, coke, alcohol... basically stuff with caffeine

        but if i do start feeling heaty, i drink that bottled 'cooling water' or my SO's grandma's cooling herbal tea an alternative is also Honey with water. very good for your system!

            For me I would get constipation and i could really feel the heatiness in my body. Normally, I would drink Jin Yin Hua or cooling tea (have forgotten the name)

            Luo Han Guo is good

              you can get those instant 'luo han guo' or water chestnut drinks from traditional chinese medicinal halls. you just need to add water and stir. i always bring them along when i go travelling cos i'm pretty prone to heatiness

                I find that watermelons are really cooling and do wonders for me

                Chrysanthemum tea gets another thumbs up from me Because I get heaty so easy, I have this everyday. If you are making it from fresh, don't be tempted to put sugar in it, as it's heaty.

                I was recommended this by my chinese doctor....Try getting 100grams of small red bean, a handful of rice and put this into 1/2 a pan of water. Bring to boil, then simmer for about 1 hour.

                Bascially, just watch what you eat in the meantime and no more late nights for you, Qian

                    So Happy! At least her CC, the ladies know that we always have body heatiness. Cos the stupid male doctor always said that "Body heatiness" is not in their dictionary Always said that mine is irregular hormone problem.

                    Mine is quite serious. I'll have very serious breakouts in my face. Means have to go on 2 weeks antibiotics medication for my face. Whole body aching & my face feel like a volcano anytime that will explode.

                    And to drink all kinds of cooling herbal teas. Don't help

                      I always experience heatiness most of the time and I drink lots of barley water and Chrysanthemum tea to bring the heatiness down.

                      I would feel really "heated" up and get this uncomfortable feeling , like something's not right with my body.

                      I also get constipation and spots as well.

                        abit off-topic, but i always wonder how come asians will have this 'heatiness' prob but not the caucasians? something to do with diet?

                        anyway, i always buy those 'liang cha' bottle (around $1 each) from chinese medicinal halls. works well for me.

                          Jazzanova, "heatiness" isn't really a term which most caucasians are too familiar with. So perhaps that's why you never really hear them complain about it too much? Either that, or their body isn't as sensitive as ours.

                          However, they do suffer quite badly from acne problems, constipation, heartburn, ulcers and the likes, but they don't really know that heatiness is the cause of it.

                          In the UK, many caucasians here have a terrible, terrible diet....so I doubt they're that healthy

                            Yeah hate feeling "heaty" .. red lips, bad breath .. and bad tempered ..

                            I drink ENO lemon flavoured cooling fruit salt. It works for me, will usually feel better after 1-2 sachets. I'll drink lotsa water and have enough rest...oh rest, its never enough for me

                              I'll take 'luo han guo', barley and eat lots of fruits.
                              One reason why caucasians don't have any problems with 'heatiness' might be because of the region they are living in. South East Asian's very near the equator and thus weather is more humid and warm then compared to the temperate regions. Heatiness can sometimes be caused by the weather.

                                silly question.. how do we know if you are "heaty" ?

                                Another thing is your the side of tongue will have teeth mark. As your tongue will swell up horizontally if you're suffer from heatiness.
