Summer is upon us and the Ancient medical science of Ayurveda contains the secrets to staying cool when temperatures keep going up.
According to Ayurveda, the qualities of the summer are hot, sharp and penetrating. This is why our pitta-dosha
tends to flare up when the temperatures rise and can produce imbalances such as sunburns, hot flashes, exhaustion, acne, dhiarrea, impatience, anger and jealousy.
The best foods to keep you cool during the summer are watermelon, cucumber, coconut, fennel, coriander, mint and aloe vera.
