Monsoon season is around the corner and along with it comes the increased risk of many diseases including but not limited to Pneumonia, Cholera, diarrhoea, and typhoid. One can never be too careful when it comes to these diseases. Many of these are caused by our negligence like failing to dispose of waterlogged items in and around the house which eventually leads to disease-spreading insects. Besides germs tend to live longer in the air as opposed to the hot climate in the summer. People with low immunity are more prone to these illnesses.
Ayurveda is an ancient branch of medicine that originated in India and mostly depends on natural substances like herbs for medicinal purposes. The uniqueness of Ayurveda lies in its inert ability to identify the root cause and treat the disease rather than the symptoms. As per Ayurveda, the main cause of diseases is the imbalance in the Doshas in the body. The Kapha and Pitta doshas are mainly affected during the monsoon season. Just like how the earth rejuvenates every autumn by shedding old leaves, the rainy season is usually preferred to do a full-body cleansing as per Ayurveda.
Panchakarma is an intense 5 step detoxifying method to cleanse the body of accumulated impurities over the ages. The stages are Vamana(induced vomiting), Virechana(induced bowel movement), Basti(Medicated Enema), Nasya(cleansing through the nose) & Rakthamokshana(blood purification).
Apart from Panchakarma, Ayurveda suggests the following therapies as well during the monsoon season:
A pre-purification procedure (poorva karma) has to precede any purification procedure and followed by post purification procedures (paschat karma). So, after assessing the condition of the individual and before performing an enema the person has to undergo internal function and sudation. Attempts for augmenting it should be executed since the bio-fire is weak in the rainy season. Light food intake should be preferred. In a way, as all the three doshas are deranged in Monsoons, enema is an ideal purification therapy as it will expel all three vitiated doshas.
Changing the lifestyle can remedy many problems and prevent some from ever taking place. Few tips for a healthy monsoon are given below:
