Thank you for highlighting the importance of not having heavy foods which contain oil and are very spicy as these foods take time to digest in the months of summer and make one feel stuffy which can well be avoided. Many of the people also have issues related to constipation which can also be cured by taking bananas and cucumbers which will help over come the situations. I do not know how some people consume heavy foods in this season.

 

It is also important to stay fit by doing light exercises and more exercise in this season as the same when done in winter will result in exhaustion which is well avoided and taking more fluids is one of the most important aspects of keeping well in this season. Having chapatis with curry and corn, jowar and lentil intake is also very useful for the health in the months of summer. One should not also go out between 11 am and 4pm during peak summer.
