With the entire world already fighting a pandemic, this year the monsoon brings forward a bigger challenge than before.

All the Ayush systems like Homeopathy, Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha, Yoga, Sowa-Rigpa and Naturopathy agree on the fact that this time of the year, with changes in weather and increase in microorganisms, our body’s immune system becomes weak. This makes us more susceptible to all kinds of viral, bacterial and fungal Infections. By following some simple precautionary measures and making some simple changes to our lifestyles, we can easily improve our immunity and prepare the body to fight the common monsoon ailments.

Today we will discuss some common monsoon ailments, their preventions and treatments.
