We need to eat a bit different during monsoons to be healthy.

We need to eat a bit different during monsoons to be healthy.

Picture this: we've had a scorching hot summer, and now we're finally getting some relief with the arrival of the monsoon – the 'green season' when everything gets a fresh makeover. The trees are bouncing back to life, the sky looks like an art piece with those black clouds, and the rivers are flowing with joy. Nature is totally rejuvenating, and guess what? Our bodies are in sync with all of it!

According to Ayurveda, the monsoon is the perfect time to bounce back from the summer heat and regain our lost strength. You know how the dry heat of summer can drain us? Well, now's the time to recharge and revitalize!

It's an amazing practice that's all about harmonizing with the changing seasons. And today, we're diving into a cool concept called "ritucharya" – that's just a fancy way of saying "seasonal routine" in Ayurvedic speak. The hot air and dryness mess with the balance of two elements in our bodies – vata (that's air and ether) and pitta (that's fire and water). But as we transition into the monsoon, these qualities come to the surface, and if we're not careful, they can mess with our digestion and overall health.

But don't fret! The good news is that “ritucharya” comes to our rescue! By making some simple adjustments in what we eat and how we live during the monsoon, we can keep those vata and pitta in check and maintain a healthy balance.

 

Here are few recommendations from Nutreat that can balance your Vata and Pitta.
