Are you suffering from diarrhea? Do you get upset stomach during monsoon? If your answer is yes, check out this article to know the top 3 Ayurvedic tips to cure & prevent it.
Diarrhea is a condition in which the affected person gets loose, watery, and has frequent stools. It might have associated symptoms like nausea, weakness, stomach cramp, or pain. During monsoon, people often suffer from diarrhea due to the intake of contaminated food & water. So, it is essential to drink boiled water & eat fresh homemade food to prevent diarrhea.
Here are the 3 tips to prevent & cure diarrhea naturally:
1. Eat light food:
If you want quick relief from diarrhea, the first line of treatment is to consume only light and easily digestible food. So, take only boiled Tandulodaka (rice water), yellow or green moong soup, barley soup, rice with buttermilk (homemade), or mung dal khichadi. Such light meals can help you give rest to your digestion and revive your energy levels.
2. Fennel tea:
Fennel seeds contain essential compounds that have an antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory effect. Due to this, it is beneficial for diarrhea as it relaxes the digestive muscles and gives you relief from diarrhea, indigestion, flatulence, and upset stomach. Taking 1-2 cups of fennel tea is sufficient to eliminate this condition.
3. Bael drink:
Bael fruit has antimicrobial properties, which help to cure diarrhea and other digestive ailments. Ayurveda recommends consuming unripe bael fruit to cure diarrhea. You can take it along with the sugar and find good results. If unavailable in your region, you can mix 1 tbsp of bael powder with a cup of water and drink it once or twice a day.
How to prevent diarrhea during monsoon?
- Drink boiled water only. Boil the required amount of water for 15 minutes over a low flame and consume it throughout the day. It is essential to drink boiled water because it removes the impurities and makes it safe to consume.
- Avoid consuming raw food like raw juice, salad, sprouts, etc. Such food items get heavy on digestion and could lead to Vata aggravation which can cause digestive problems.
- Avoid street food, especially during monsoon, because during this season, the chances of contamination are high, and you may get diarrhea or other digestive issues.
- If you eat fish, avoid it during this season because it is a fish breeding season, and you may have a stomach infection, especially if your digestion is weak.
