Can certain foods that I am eating cause boils to pop up? Suggest some home remedies to treat boils?

There are a couple of very clear and simple reasons why boils will pop up. One of the reasons is extreme accumulation of heat in the body. This will give rise to boils, as the heat has no other way of manifesting itself. In fact, heat boils are the first symptoms that indicate the extra heat in your body. Another reason for boils to pop up is acne, which can be caused by a vast variety of reasons. Of course, food intake is also one of them. One more reason for boils to pop up on the face or the body is improper or excessive intake of oily, fried or spicy food. To begin with, you should check off what you are doing wrong against this list of reasons you have been provided with. If you have been adopting an extreme step such as eating excessively oily or fried food, or heat causing substances, you can stop at once. Some of the substances that will increase heat in the body are alcoholic beverages, red meat, excessive spice and too much of fried food. You should eliminate these from your diet totally for about a week and see what difference it makes to you.

There are also other things you can add to your diet to ensure that you are keeping your internal body clean and cool. Increase your intake of fresh leafy greens and fruits and raw vegetables. This will help to maintain an easy equilibrium in the body. Avoid eating fried food altogether. Not only is this bad for your skin, it is also bad for your general state of health. You must also make it a point to drink at least eight tall glasses of water every day. This will automatically lead to healthier and better skin. It will flush out offensive toxins from your body via sweat and urine and also reduce heat and toxicity levels in your skin greatly. You must also make it a point to indulge in some form of exercise on a daily basis. This is as important for your skin as eating right is. If you don't have time for too much you can simply swim everyday. This will also help you to a large extent. Exercise will also release endorphins, which are known as "happy hormones". These natural mood up lifters will also help to maintain high spirits, generally. Try to incorporate these points in your lifestyle for effective results.
