5 Simple Monsoon Health Tips

July 13, 2019

Monsoon brings with itself the promise of rain, new life, and an escape from the heat and humidity of summer. However, it is not just humans who love the rainy season. Plants, animals, bacteria, and viruses enjoy it just as much.

 

As a result, while we might love taking a walk in the rain, diving into a puddle in the field, or just enjoying a freshly cut fruit on the road, it certainly isn’t entirely harmless. For you to stay safe and enjoy the rains to the fullest, we prepared a list of simple health tips.

 

1. Increase Vitamin C Intake

 

Monsoon is the perfect time for viruses and bacteria to thrive. You will notice that it is this time of the year when viral fevers, allergic reactions, and other viral infections are most rampant. Similarly, the air has more bacteria during this time than at any other point. To remain healthy, you need to increase your immunity. One of the easiest ways of doing that is increasing your Vitamin C intake. Eat sprouts, fresh green vegetables, and oranges to have a Vitamin C rich diet.

 

2. Avoid Junk Food

 

Street food freshly cut fruits and other kinds of food items sold on the street should strictly be avoided. The road is usually filled with potholes full of water and mud. These form perfect incubators for various kinds of harmful microorganisms. The longer the food items are exposed to the open air, the higher they are likely to become home to them. So, every time you eat your favorite junk food, you are more likely to contract a disease.

 

3. Do Not Store Stagnant Water

 

One of the worst issues of monsoon is the breeding of mosquitoes. These nasty little insects are perfectly capable of making you miserable. However, fear not! With a few precautions, you can easily find your way to a mosquito-free residence. Ensure that there is no open water storage in your home. Ensure that they are always in covered pots. Similarly, take note to ensure that the drains are not clogged, and there’s no rainwater held stagnant in your nearby areas. Mosquitoes are born in stagnant water, so removing sources of stagnant water will help a lot.

 

4. Add a Disinfectant to the Bath Water

 

Most people love taking a stroll in the rain. It is refreshing and one of the wonders of human life. However, remember to bathe with a disinfectant like Dettol, Savlon, or Betadine, every time you get wet. It will save you from the millions of microorganisms you carried home and help you stay healthy and fit. Washing your hands and feet, legs are advisable as you get back. Remember, use only clean water to wash your face.

 

5. Get Your Clothes Ironed

 

It might seem like a strange tip, but the monsoon is perfect for molds. Closets, wardrobes, and almirahs are generally used to store clothing, bed sheets, and linen. These places stay cool and start to get damp as the rains progress. With wet moisture come molds. Since, there’s seldom any sunlight to warm your clothes, getting them ironed is the next best thing.

 

Here’s to staying healthy and happy!

 

Yes, monsoons do bring health issues which is why you just read a list of steps to stay safe, however, do not let these overshadow the joys of the season either. If you remember to clean up after you return, it is okay to play football in the open field. So, go on and let the child in you live again.

 

In case of any acute viral respiratory attack or any skin allergic reaction in rain, you can visit your local nearby registered Homeopathic Practitioner for some Homeopathic medicine which can help you without any side effects.

 

Antibiotics are strongly NOT recommended in case of any cold, cough or fever in monsoon.
