Brijesh Singh says--There are very simple methods of getting rid of heat out of the body.
1. If you find that your body regularly gets heated up then make sure that you drink a lot of water.Initially drink a glass of water(cool water don't go for chilled water) then after 40 minutes drink another glass of water. Go for urination if you feel like and then when you come back drink another glass of water. Keep this cycle going.It will not only cool down your body but will also help you in learning very fast if you are a student.
2.You can also go for a fresh bath once in the morning and the other in the evening. While bathing make the water roll over your body from the top of your head and not just from the top of your shoulders.After bathing it is very important to get your head dried.This can be easily done by taking a dry towel and wiping your head with it. You will surely feel fresh and cool after this.
3. If it is a winter season and your body is very hot, then it may be fever. In this case take a fever pill and cover yourself with one or more blankets such that you start sweating a lot. This way you will lose the excess heat and even the fever will be controlled.
4.Generally brain consumes maximum energy in a human being if he/she is a student or teacher. In this case to cool down the brain, take a handkercheif , get it soaked in cold water, wring it to shed the water and then put it on your forehead. It will be very good for your head as well as eyes.
5. In any situation to reduce heat of the body you can go for following food items--
a) Take a lot of cucumber salad
b) Eat tomatoes in your salad
c) You can also go for green-coconut water
d) Other green vegetables will also work
e) Take lemon juice twice or thrice a day
f) Papaya and water melon will also do. Don't take lot of water melon as it will lead to loose motion.
6. There is another interesting fact. Take a cup of tea or a coffee as they act as diuretics that is make you urinate good number of times which will eventually remove a lot of heat from your body.
So enjoy cool and healthy living.

The basic answer to this problem is in drinking lots of water. since because, it brings down the body temperature.. If castor oil is applied to center part of head(one or two drops) body heat may reduced.Consuming food items like cucumber,water melon,lemon,orange can help. Try to avoid mango,jack fruit.These may lead to increased amount of body heat.Go for a walk in fresh air in early morning.try to avoid spicy food items. Though cold water may seem pleasing for heat, it actually increases the body temperature due to its latent heat.
