Hi Dr,

I am going on holiday to Maputo in December and i hear its very hot that side. I have a problem of not breathing properly when its too hot, so what can i do?

My sister says its all in my mind that i cant breathe when its hot - can that be true or is it a health problem?

Dear Ou,

Getting yourself physically fit helps in heat tolerance! Exercising one hour per day in the heat back home helps acclimatize. It is a good idea to have a siesta in the hottest part of the day which is a good Mediterranean custom,
