Varsha Rithu Charya
Ayurveda recommends to follow specific lifestyle and diet during each season to maintain our health. The rainy season or Varsha Rithu is categorised under the Utharayan Kala. It is noted that the body strength or bala of an individual becomes weak. There is increase in Vaata dosha and accumulation of Pittha dosha in the body. So all our regimen should aim at balancing these two doshas. During rainy season, it is noted that our metabolic rate falls. Many digestive upsets including loss of appetite is felt. As the digestive fire or agni is weak, our food habits should change:
• Consume light and freshly cooked foods only.
• Foods should be sweet, salty and sour in taste.
• Drink only boiled water.
• Avoid non-vegetarian diet as it is heavy for digestion.
• Avoid sleeping during day time.
• Over-eating and over-exertion should is to be avoided.
Apart from personal hygiene, the surroundings should also be maintained clean.
