Monsoon season not only rejuvenates every living organism after dealing with the scorching heat of summers but even brings a host of diseases along with it. These diseases may include jaundice, food poisoning, cholera etc. So, it becomes very important to take care of few important things and enjoy this season to the fullest. Mentioned below are few tips that will surely ensure a healthy monsoon to you.
Try to keep yourself hydrated during the monsoon season because sweating in monsoon do not evaporate easily and even the humidity levels are high which further prevents the body of a person to release heat. It is recommended to carry a water bottle every time. Try to avoid carbonated drinks which significantly reduce the mineral levels in the body further preventing enzymes in the body functioning especially causing indigestion.
Prefer to eat clean as well as fresh food during monsoon and do ensure before consuming that all fruits and vegetables which you eat are hygienically washed. In order to kill germs, steam all the leafy vegetables and avoid eating contaminated food because that can lead to illnesses including jaundice. We recommend you all to have fresh soups as well as cooked food which is light as well as nutritious.
Try having balanced diet because the process of digestion during monsoon is significantly slow as compared to other seasons so you have to eat moderately as well as at the time when you feel hungry. At the time when you are not feeling hungry can cause indigestion and sometimes even jaundice. Prefer having spices like coriander, turmeric, pepper and fruits, vegetable like radish, bananas, apple, pears, litchis, carrots and many more which will improve immunity as well as will help to improve digestion.
If you are fond of having street food, then say a BIG NO to it during monsoon. Though street juices, kulfis, golas, chaat and sandwiches are really tempting but avoid having these during rainy season. These foods might contain bacteria which may cause indigestion.
