Monsoon Diseases

What bliss if we take care of all Monsoon Ailments with help of Homeopathy!

We are so good to welcome the monsoon showers after experiencing the scorching summer heat. But monsoons do bring certain health risks. Our body is more susceptible to health issues in rainy season, because monsoon reduces the immunity power of our body. Our body constantly gets affected with allergies, infections, indigestion problems, so we must keep our body resistant against such diseases. The humidity in the atmosphere is usually high in this season; as a result the body’s digestive capability goes down. The important point to keep in mind is that you must avoid oily food, street food or any type of food that is prepared in bulk else there is a possibility that it upsets your stomach.

Many people like this season, but hate the diseases that follow. But Homoeopathy has the best cures for all the ailments & also through the homoeopathic treatment one can prevent these water born diseases.

Some of the common monsoon maladies along with a little information about what Homoeopathy has to offer in the treatment of these conditions.

  • Fungal infections: Fungal infections are common during the monsoons because of constant dampness and the possibility of coming in contact with filthy water. The moisture present in the environment helps the fungi to grow and thrive, especially in skin folds such as the groins or between the toes.
    Medication:
    Chrysarobic acid can help to treat generalized fungal infections.
    Merc Sol recommended for fungal infection in the groins.
  • Respiratory Allergies: Due to temperature changes and poor hygienic practices that are common during the monsoons, conditions like a runny nose, sneezing, headache, and recurrent throat infections tend to be rampant.
    Medication:
    Natrum Sulph given to treat allergic affections due to dampness.
  • Asthma: Allergic asthma is more severe in its intensity and frequency during the monsoons because of weather changes and the associated dampness in the environment. Dust mites and pollens also tend to irritate the airways and cause them to tighten, making air exchange difficult and leading to breathlessness. The efficacy of homeopathic medicines has been confirmed by clinical studies.
    Medication:
    Ars Alb, Antim Tart, Ipecac & constitutional treatment helpful to cure asthma.
  • Amoebiasis: This is a very common problem during the monsoons, as the parasite Entamoeba histolytica, which is responsible for it, tends to survive for longer under warm and moist conditions. It enters the body through contaminated food or water and produces diarrhoea or dysentery with blood and mucus.
    Medication:
    Aloe Soc is known to be helpful to treat amoebiasis.
  • Gastroenteritis: Gastroenteritis is a general term that refers to infections (bacterial/viral) of the gastrointestinal tract. It gives rise to several problems such as stomachache, diarrhea and vomiting, causing loss of body fluids that in turn lead to dehydration. Children are usually affected. Unhygienic surroundings, contaminated water and food items, and overcrowding are the known culprits. Avoid eating at unhygienic places and drink boiled water to keep gastrointestinal infections at bay.
    Medication:
    Arsenic Album can help to treat diarrhoea or vomiting and to prevent further fluid loss from the body.
  • Leptospirosis: Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection that is common during the rains in tropical countries like India. These bacteria are carried by water contaminated by rat’s urine and faeces. Flooding after heavy rainfall helps to spread the bacteria around. Human beings get infected by drinking contaminated water or when their eyes, nose, or any open wounds come in contact with contaminated water. In humans, it causes a wide range of symptoms similar to flu such as fever, headache, chills, nausea, vomiting, and musculo-skeletal aches. In severe cases, it can cause jaundice and lead to liver damage.
    Medication:
    Symptomatic treatment followed by miasmatic & constitutional treatment.
  • Malaria: Malaria is an infectious disease that spreads through the bite of mosquitoes. Since stagnant water and dampness favour the breeding of mosquitoes, there is a rise in the number of malaria cases during the monsoons. Every year, there are approximately 350–500 million cases of malaria. Fever with chills followed by sweating is characteristic of malarial fevers. These days, there are increased cases of chloroquine-resistant malaria. Malaria can be prevented by taking precautions like avoiding marshy or stagnant-water areas, wearing full sleeved clothes and using mosquito nets or mosquito repellents.
    Medication:
    Clinical studies have proved that the homeopathic neem (Azadirachita Indica) preparation is effective for the reduction of malarial attacks in highly endemic areas for Plasmodium falciparum. Also symptomatic treatment. Nat Mur, Gelsemium, Ipecac, Malaria off, China Ars etc.

The monsoons wash away the pollution in the atmosphere to rejuvenate your entire being, enabling you to breathe in a whiff of fresh air, a rarity these days. Get healthy and stay healthy using the goodness and power of Homeopathy, a holistic healing science that treats you and not just your disease by boosting your immunity. With your defences strong, you can rejoice in the rains without being concerned about diseases at the back of your mind. So, you don’t need to stop yourself from walking or playing football in the rain. Have a happy monsoon!

Diet and Nutritional Tips to Stay Healthy in Monsoon Season

Never eat if you are not feeling hungry, this is a solid cardinal mantra in monsoons. Doing so results in indigestion problems and illness. So, here are some specific guidelines regarding what to eat and what not to eat during rains.

Nutritional Tips in Monsoon:

The damp and filthy conditions in monsoon plays a host for many disease causing germs, which cause some serious health attacks like dengue, malaria, conjunctivitis, typhoid, viral fever, pneumonia, gastro intestinal disturbances, diarrhea and dysentery. If your immune system is weak you are supposed to catch these diseases instantly.

To maintain healthy diet and protect you from such ill causes during the rainy season these countermeasures have to be taken.

  • Eat fruits as they help you restore energy. Apples, mangoes, pomegranates, and pears are best suggestible. Avoid watermelon and muskmelons and also goosing on too many mangoes may cause pimples.
  • Have medium to low salt food and avoid heavy salty food as they are responsible for high blood pressure and water retention.
  • Eating watery foods like lassi, watermelon, rice, muskmelon creates swelling in the body. So, better opt for foods which are drying in nature like corn, gram flour, chick pea etc.
  • Foods such as brown rice, oats, and barley are the best foods one could have in this monsoon.
  • Body’s immunity can be increased by adding a dash of garlic to the soups, sir fries and curries you intake.
  • Opt for yogurt, curd and almonds in your diet instead of milk. Drink only boiled and purified water to protect yourself from harmful germs and drinking plenty of water keeps your body hydrated.
  • Consuming bitter vegetables like bitter gourd, and bitter herbs like neem, turmeric powder and methi seeds help in preventing infections.
  • Consume drying oils like corn oil or light oil and avoid heavy oils like sesame oil, peanut oil and mustard oil as they fall in first place to invite infections.

People who face skin allergies during rainy seasons must avoid spicy foods. Spicy foods raise body temperature and stimulate blood circulation and it leads to allergies and skin irritation. Other problems such as boils, change in skin color dullness, rashes, pyodera are also some skin damaging effects which arise in this season.

  • Avoid naturally sour foods like tamarind, tomatoes and lime in your diet as it promotes water retention.
  • Avoid too much of fish and meat this season and heavy curries and non- vegetarians should go for light meat preparations like stew and soups.
  • Astringent, mildly bitter and pungent foods must be best served this season.
  • Drink lots of herbal teas, especially those with antibacterial properties. These include ginger, pepper, honey, mint and basil leaves. Excessive intake of coffee and tea dehydrates body fluids so they must be better avoided.
  • Vegetables like cauliflower, potatoes, cluster beans, ladies finger, kidney beans, pigeon pea, and sprouted grains must be avoided.
  • Eat steamed salads instead of raw vegetables as they contain active bacteria and virus that cause bacterial and viral infections.
  • Better eat seasonal fruits as non- seasonal fruits get infested with worms during the monsoons. Pomegranates, lychees, apples, bananas are among the recommended.
  • Avoid eating fried items, pre- cut fruits and juices from road side vendors and stick to high quality and hygiene.
  • People who suffer with arthritis should drink warm water with tulsi and dalchini (cardamom) on an empty stomach in the morning. Doing this improves bowel syndromes and also decreases pains in joints.
  • Always wash vegetables well and keep them clean especially if they are taken raw.

Following these guidelines helps you to stay safe and healthy during monsoons. Always binge on nutritional food and be hygienic by taking necessary precautionary measures like cleaning your house, washing hands before and after having a meal, etc. Have a safe and healthy monsoon.
