During monsoons the digestive fire (agni) is weak. Throughout summer, Vata dosha accumulates in the body and vitiates agni even further affecting the digestive power severely. When the doshas are out of balance, it leads to various diseases including gastrointestinal disturbances such as diarrhoea and dysentery. Ayurveda recommends Varsha Ritucharya to counter the detrimental imbalances brought about by climatic changes during monsoons. According to the traditional Indian calendar there are 6 different seasons (Shishir, Vasant, Greeshm, Varsha, Sharad & Hemanta) and Ayurveda suggests a set of lifestyle and dietary guidelines which effectively prevents doshas from being imbalanced. The seasonal guideline for the Varsha (rainy season/Monsoons) is known as Varsha Ritucharya. Here are a few simple lifestyle & diet recommendations from the Varsha Ritucharya to enjoy monsoons without worrying about indigestion, bloating, cold or other seasonal disorders.
