Q. I feel that the heat affects me more now than when I was younger. Are there extra precautions I should take? ? Emma, La Crescenta ? Our bodies don?t adjust to high temperatures as well when we get older so we do need to be careful. We need to drink lots of fluids even when we don?t feel thirsty. We need to avoid caffeine, alcohol and soda, which can all lead to dehydration. It is a good idea to ask the pharmacist if any of our medications will make us more sensitive to heat and/or sun. Many of them do. We should try to stay in air-conditioned places and avoid going outside in the heat of the day. You have probably heard that you absorb Vitamin D from sunshine.

Q. I feel that the heat affects me more now than when I was younger. Are there extra precautions I should take? Emma, La Crescenta   When we are in the heat too long, we can experience heat exhaustion or even heat stroke. The symptoms of heat exhaustion are dizziness, headache and muscle cramps. The symptoms of heat stroke are difficulty breathing, hot or flushed skin and confusion. In both cases the body needs to be physically cooled down by a cool sponge bath or immersion in a tub of cool water, and medical attention should be sought.

Forty days and 40 nights—that’s what we set aside to create a feeling of optimum health and beauty in my Wellness Boot Camp. It’s a chance to reinvent your lifestyle to create a disease-resistant body that looks and feels better than ever. My campers often ask me why I don’t recommend vitamins as part of such a comprehensive program. Instead, we focus on “super foods” to allow the body to thrive. Just as there are many reasons why I prefer to nourish the body with food rather than vitamins, there are also many cases where taking vitamins is appropriate.

You've made it through the holidays, through excessive sugar and rich food, the stress of parking, shopping and spending. Then there's the office parties, drinking, more drinking, more spending, not enough time to exercise and…all of the above brings us to a lack of quality sleep. What does all this mean to your body?

The lazy days of summer bring fond memories of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. I grew up in Phoenix where the scorching Arizona sun can sweeten a watermelon like no other. Nothing tastes better on a hot day than an ice-cold watermelon. Maybe you recall the taste of freshpicked blueberries or blackberries. Or maybe piping hot corn on the cob accompanies a trip down memory lane for you. Cravings for fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables means your body is asking for the nutrients.
