Nutrition and care for the rainy season

Posted by Royal Sundaram on 13 Sep 2010

Monsoons mean frequent downpours, stagnant streets and onset of illness. Every rainy season seems to witness an increase in water borne diseases. Therefore, it becomes essential to keep a check over what we eat and drink.

Ayurveda states that our digestive system is weakened and goes out of balance causing indigestion during the rainy season.


Here are a few tips to stay health during the rainy season.

  • Always drink clean and fresh water
  • If you do not have purified water, drink only boiled and filtered water. Ensure that you drink it within 24 hrs of boiling
  • Wash all fruits and vegetables thoroughly, particularly leafy vegetables and cauliflower
  • Eat moderately as its harder to digest food during the monsoon
  • Moong dal is easily digestible and an ideal choice for the season
  • Garlic, pepper, ginger, asafoetida (hing), jeera powder, turmeric and coriander enhances digestion and improves immunity
  • Lighter meat preparations like soups and stews are advisable rather than heavy curries.
  • Eat only freshly cooked food, or reheat stored food before consumption
  • Drink warm beverages; add mint or dry ginger powder to tea.

Nutritious diet boosts your immune system and proper hygienic practices helps ward off monsoon sicknesses. Take every precautious measure well in advance, don’t forget the meaningful adage ‘Prevention is better than cure’. Avoid self-medication and report to your physician when you’re confronted with any illness symptoms. Lastly, do not forget to insure you health with a good medical insurance policy.
