How To Adjust Pitta Dosha During Monsoon Season?

Many of you may not believe but seasons not only affect our mood but also our digestive health. This is the reason why digestion-related problems crop up the most with the advent of the monsoon season. Monsoon is the season when we get the maximum cravings to eat pakodas, fried snacks, spicy and street foods. But, did you know, our digestive system is the weakest during this season? According to Ayurveda, vata dosha aggravates and pitta dosha accumulates and weakens the body systems during the monsoon season. Pitta dosha accumulation in the body affects the digestive system and makes it sluggish and weak thereby giving rise to indigestion and acidic atmosphere in the stomach. To balance the accumulation of pitta dosha during this season, you can follow Ayurvedic ritucharya (seasonal routine).

In Ayurveda, ritucharya (seasonal routine) is defined for each season. It helps our body adapt to the changing climatic conditions without getting ill or infected. Due to vata and pitta dosha imbalance in the body, toxic waste products and foods accumulate in the body in the form of ama (toxins) that causes various illnesses in the body. With the help of below mentioned tips, you can adjust or balance pitta dosha in the body during monsoon season and prevent digestive problems from occurring in the first place.

Tips to balance pitta dosha during monsoon season:

  1. Consume a light and nutritious diet. You can have seasonal vegetables like snake gourd (turai), bitter gourd (karela), bottle gourd (lauki) and okra (bhindi).
  2. Cow ghee is recommended. You can use it for regular cooking purposes as it enhances both the taste and nutrition of the food.
  3. Old barley, steamed and lightly seasoned pumpkin and moong daal/ soup are quick, easy to make, healthy options for your meals that soothes your digestive system.
  4. You might not feel thirsty or need to have water but it is very important to keep yourself hydrated even on rainy days.
  5. You can start your day on a healthy note with a cup of Jiva Ayurvedic Tea. It’s a natural blend of whole herbs that improves your metabolism and digestion and boosts your immune system.
  6. Avoid eating outside/ stall foods, fried, oily, spicy, acidic or sour foods like pickles, chutneys and yoghurt. Make fresh food at home and eat warm. Drink boiled water. Avoid consuming leafy vegetables.
  7. Try to include spices like turmeric, ginger, rock salt, coriander, cumin, asafoetida, black pepper and piper longum in cooking.
  8. Avoid sleeping during the daytime and refrain from overexerting yourself. You can perform light exercises, yoga, stretches, pranayama and meditation to keep your mind and body healthy.
  9. Boil a half teaspoon of carrom seeds (ajwain), coriander (dhaniya) and cumin seeds (jeera) each with a small piece of ginger in a glass of water. Strain and drink for a healthy digestion.
  10. Having 2 tsp. Chyawanprash daily will help boost your metabolism and digestion and prevents cold, cough and flu, which are common seasonal infections. You can try Jiva Chyawanprash or Jiva Sugarfree Chyawanprash, traditionally made using 40+ Ayurvedic herbs with abundant health benefits.
