Ayurveda on Rainy Season –
Wondering whether there are any effects on doshas with the onset of monsoons? Yes, Rainy season does have an effect on the doshas. As per Ayurveda, there is an increase in Vata and a mild increase in Pitta during the rainy season. Due to the moistness in the surrounding environment, there is a rise of moistness or coldness in our body too; which results in the sluggishness of digestive fire. This, in turn, leads to Pitta accumulation and simultaneous aggravation of Vata. So, one needs to balance Vata and Pitta doshas. An aggravated Vata leads to symptoms such as joint pain, muscular pain, acidity, loss of appetite, body ache, gas troubles, indigestion, cold & cough, etc. Hence, the imbalance in dosha needs to be pacified with proper diet and lifestyle changes.
Amrutam has a perfect cure for all your stomach-related problems – Zeo Malt, which contains Triphala, Ajwain, Marich And Saunth. Zeo Malt aids in indigestion, hyperacidity, heartburn, flatulence and constipation.
Here are a few tips to maintain good health throughout the monsoon season while you can enjoy the rains with your family.
- Avoid heavy foods like fried foods, spicy, acidic. Oily foods can disrupt digestion and may cause digestive issues. As the humidity is high in the rainy season, our digestive power goes down. Therefore, try to eat light and digestible meals so as to accommodate a weak digestive system.
- Avoid green leafy vegetables as it attracts a lot of dirt and humidity. Green leafy veggies are usually tough to digest and are quite difficult to clean during the monsoons.
- Avoid eating out like street food, junk food and eat fresh, home-cooked meals only to increase immunity.
- Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly. Eat cooked or steamed vegetables like pumpkin, salads, seasonal fruits, moong dal to keep your digestive tract in check. Also, you can opt for hot soups, yoghurt and buttermilk.
- Include pepper, salt, ginger, hot water, turmeric, honey, mint, cow’s ghee in your diet.
