Excessive thirst – this doesn’t sound like a malady at all. After all everyone feels thirsty. It’s so very normal. And with the change of seasons, there is always an appreciable change in everyone’s appetite and thirst habits. Summer times, especially, are thirst times. But an excessive and incessant craving for water could well point out to something grave. Hence ‘excessive thirst’ as such should not be brushed off lightly. Especially when you have an inkling that something is intrinsically wrong with you - call it your ‘instinct’ or your ‘sixth sense’. Sometimes excessive thirst could well be an indication of a far more serious ailment like diabetes. Seek appropriate medical help if you harbor such suspicions. If you do not suffer from any such afflictions and all your tests are normal, then try some of these home-remedies to quench your insatiable thirst.
* Boil water till it is reduced to one fourth of its volume and have it.
