Have you enjoyed the first rain of this season…..What you did….danced? Had garamagarm Vadapav & tea…… ride on bike………Great

But be careful…monsoon is like festival season but also it is a season of many diseases & infections.  Sudden changes in temperature lowers down the immunity & make us susceptible to many diseases like hyperacidity, indigestion, skin disorder, hair problem etc…

According to Ayurveda rainy season is also the time for aggravation of Pitta, which the functional energy of our body dominant in fire element & responsible for metabolism & digestion. Digestion is weak during monsoon.

  2. Avoid heavy, hot acidic, salty, deep fried foods, junk foods & leafy vegetable.
  3. Be careful while eating out & make sure you go to a place which is clean & hygienic.
  4. Eat lot of bitter vegetables like bitter guard (Kerala) & bitter herbs like neem, fenugreek & turmeric as it is prevents infection. Bitter taste neutralizes Pitta.
