Along with the monsoon season, comes the risk of weakened digestion, allergies and food-borne diseases. The urge to binge on fried-snacks and junk-food from outside can become a nightmare during this season. Adding to this, the humidity levels can take a toll on overall health. Hence, it is imperative to keep our gut happy and healthy this monsoon season.

What Causes Stomach Ailments During The Monsoons? The humid weather during the monsoons can make your digestive system slow and unhealthy. Vomiting, diarrhea and stomach-pain are the most common stomach infections to get in this weather. This is usually caused due to the consumption of poorly handled food and drinks.

Common Stomach Ailments During Monsoons:

Diarrhea: is one of the most common health problems during the monsoon season. It can range from a temporary condition to a potentially life-threatening situation. Diarrhea can be caused due to consumption of unhygienic food and contaminated water.

Gastroenteritis: is an intestinal infection that causes abdominal cramps, nausea, watery diarrhea or vomiting, and sometimes fever. The most common cause of viral gastroenteritis is contact with an infected person or by ingesting contaminated food or water.

Food poisoning: occurs when harmful viruses and bacteria start to breed on the food that is kept out in the open for a long period. Common symptoms of food poisoning may include vomiting, dehydration, nausea and diarrhea.

Homeopathy Treatment For Stomach Ailments

Homeopathy is a natural, safe and effective treatment for stomach ailments. Along with offering long-term relief from a stomach infection, the homeopathy treatment soothes the stomach distress, pain and other associated symptoms. Managing, controlling and correcting the progress and response are important steps in the homeopathic treatment for stomach ailments.

Homeopathic medicines for stomach ailments are prescribed after a series of evaluations which include assessment of the symptoms, a detailed study of the family history, genetics, physical and emotional attributes. Along with that, homeopaths also study the severity of the symptoms to provide suitable treatment and individualized diet plans.

Below are some common and effective homeopathic remedies for stomach pain and infection:

  • Arsenicum Alb 30C [Dosage: 5 pills every 2 hours, till symptoms subside]: Useful in cases of acute and mild food poisoning. Patients can get dehydrated, therefore please consult your doctor if symptoms persist.
  • Carbo vegetabilis [Dosage: 30C, 5 pills twice a day till symptoms subside]: Made from charcoal, this remedy is ideal for belching and gas, after eating, just like how charcoal absorbs other gases.
  • Ipecac 30 C, [Dosage: 5 pills twice a day till symptoms subside]: Vomiting associated with a very strong feeling of nausea

Imp. Note: Do not self-medicate, visit your homeopath for the best solution to your stomach issues.

 Tips to stay away from stomach diseases in the monsoons

  • Eat in moderation; consume lighter foods that are gut-friendly and can be easily digested.
  • Drink lots of herbal teas like green tea and ginger lemon tea that help improve digestion and boost immunity.
  • Avoid eating uncovered or unhygienic food. Consume home-cooked food instead.
  • Wash vegetables and fruits thoroughly before cooking or eating them to get rid of germs and dirt.
  • Drink plenty of water to flush out toxins from your body. Drinking water also boosts your digestive system.
  • Consume Boiled / Filtered Water: Water during the monsoons gets easily contaminated; boiling will kill germs and parasites that are present in the water, thus preventing infections.
  • Always wash your hands before eating. If it is not possible to wash hands, use a hand sanitizer.
  • Our metabolism slows down during the monsoon season. This also lowers our immunity. Consume a handful of walnuts, dates and almonds to keep up with your immunity.

Don’t let seasonal stomach ailments grow into long-term health conditions. If the condition aggravates, consult a homeopath for a complete diagnosis and a side-effect-free treatment.
