Ratvarsha, the summer season is in intense condition till Jyeshtha and Ashadha month. This is the middle time of summer solstice in which the sun exploits the affection (water) of earth and man with its fierce rays. Small water sources start drying up on the earth, due to non-availability of natural water in trees and plants, dryness starts coming. Human beings start experiencing extreme weakness and feel uneasiness because the outside temperature is high. According to the concept of Ayurveda, our food has a direct impact on our overall health. Seasons are characterized by giving vata dosha, pitta dosha and kapha dosha in the body. The summer season is hot, bright and fast, so people with pitta dosha prakriti should eat foods that provide coolness so that their digestive power can remain normal. Every person should take food according to his daily routine and needs. It is good for health. Man does not get any type of diseases due to having a fixed time of food intake. Food should always be taken only when there is hunger, when the part of the food taken earlier has become dilapidated or digested and there should not be any kind of heaviness or pain in the stomach. By not eating food on time, Pitta gets agitated and by eating food after a fixed time, Vata gets agitated, due to which weakness, tiredness, pain, disorders in complexion arise in the body. The amount of food that can provide a completely balanced diet to the body should be taken. Its requirements are different in every human being.

Apart from this, keeping in mind the physical needs of each class, the quantity of these components is reduced or increased. diet in summer food made of aliphatic substances ie ghee, oil etc. should be consumed in proper quantity, due to which heart diseases, obesity and other disorders are reduced because the intensity of jathragni digests the food easily and with proper digestion, the right energy gives strength to the body. and keeps healthy. Consumption of aliphatic substances also destroys the tridosha. Fresh and hot cooked food should always be taken, food kept for a long time in summer also becomes food for various bacteria, which are also the cause of various diseases. Food kept in the fridge for a long time is also not beneficial.

Apart from these, there are some other unhealthy food items which are not being mentioned here because due to the geographical and climatic diversity of India, this number becomes unlimited. Apart from taking proper diet in proper quantity, it is also beneficial to take care of your daily routine.
