With the mercury soaring high with each passing day - dehydration, diarrhea, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, vomiting - are becoming too common.

According to experts, it’s important for us to eat more alkaline foods to fight the heat in our body. Consuming green vegetables, water-rich foods and drinking enough water are of paramount importance during summer.


Here are some Ayurvedic tips to beat the heat this summer:


Avoid heat producing foods


Say no to foods that produce heat in your body. Avoids citrus foods, beetroots, carrots, garlic, chilli, tomato, salted cheese and sour cream to reduce the production of heat in your body. Eat more salads and avoid dark meat.


Use coconut oil

Rubbing coconut oil on your body before taking a bath has a calming, cooling and soothing effect on the skin. You can also use sunflower oil.


Exercise in the morning

Exercising every day is a part of a healthy lifestyle. Always prefer exercising in the morning during the summer season as the temperature at this time is slightly lower as compared to the other parts of the day.

Use cooling oils

You can use khus, sandalwood and jasmine oil as they have a soothing aroma and also have cooling properties.


Avoid icy 'cold drinks'

Consuming ice cold drinks inhibits digestion and creates toxins. Drinking chilled drinks puts off the digestive fire that is responsible for converting food into energy. This can lead to various health issues.
