How to stay healthy during monsoon? Use these Ayurvedic tips
- June 19, 2018
By the time you read this blog, the eagerly awaited monsoon season must have begun or it is about to begin shortly. We all love rainfall, right? With the arrival of monsoon, the joy of splashing rainwater, playing with friends is a common sight. Although grown-ups may not enjoy the same way kids do, the joy is obviously visible on their faces and their body language.
No matter how enjoyable monsoon season is, the 2-3 months of a downpour – light, moderate, to heavy, calls out for proper and complete health care. Else, the chances of falling sick or catching infections increases as the season grips the surroundings. Such infections delay the chances of a quick recovery.
So, to enjoy every drop of rainfall, may it be getting wet in the first rainfall or relishing fragrance of wet earth or maybe even gorging hot food with Masala Chai, you got to maintain your health. O no! Not through over the counter medicines, but good old and simple tips and tricks of Ayurveda.
Ritucharya is a term used in Ayurveda, meaning “to follow a lifestyle & diet that meets seasonal requirements”. During monsoons, it is natural to feel heavy, sweaty, itchy, irritable skin, weakness and bloated. Also, lack of appetite is caused due to imbalanced ‘Jatharagni’, i.e. digestive fire.
However, you need not worry about infections or diseases during this period, if you balance the three Doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
The above tips will safeguard you from monsoon diseases and allow you to enjoy the monsoon season to your heart’s delight.
