When monsoon comes it releases chemicals, viruses, allergens, toxins, polluted water and all of a sudden the temperature goes down for which our immune system is not prepared to fight with. While you must take regular precautions, like boiling water, and avoiding street food, or food prepared in bulk, here are a few specific guidelines about eating during the rains.
The cool weather may tempt you to gorge on fried bhajiyas, but exercise discretion. The cardinal rule is that you must not eat when you are not hungry, because by doing this you invite indigestion and accompanying illnesses. The digestive system gets weakened due to dehydration in summer. This leads to low digestive power. This is further weakened by vitiation of doshas and dhatus due to monsoon. Hence, following a diet which increases your power of digestion, and strengthens the digestive system, would be beneficial in the rainy season.
