This year, the summers have entered very suddenly causing sudden weather change. There is a sharp rise in the temperature. Winters were too cold. The gradual exit of winter and smooth entry of summer usually makes it easy for our body to get adjusted for the season change. But when such a changes are very sudden with a sharp rise in the temperature it affects the health. Body is not adjusted so fast against such a change. As a result of which there are many health problems.

Sudden weather change symptoms (Sore thorat, allergies, headache, fatigue)

There is a sudden and sharp change in the weather. Temperature starts going up. This causes fever, cold and cough. Many times it affects the respiratory system, upper and lower both.

With the cold there is running nose, irritable nostrils, sinus inflammation, headache, red eyes with secretions.

With cough there is either dry cough or wet cough. If dry cough, coughing increases in the night and gives sleep disturbance. It also gives irritation to bronchus, which causes a burning sensation and pain in the middle of the chest.

Wet cough leads to bacterial infections..if not treated in time. These all signs are usually associated with high fever, malaise and body ache and weakness.

How to avoid falling sick in this season?

As we can see the above sign and symptoms due to sudden weather change, it is important to know how to avoid this.

According to Ayurveda, this is called as Rutusandhi-kaal. This means that one season of winter gets over and summers enter. This season change always causes the imbalance of doshas, that is kapha, vaat and pitta in the body. In the winter our body is continuously facing cold, which makes the kapha dosha in the body,very sticky and it remains and chokes the respiratory, digestive systems etc.As the summer starts, the kapha dosha looses its density and starts melting and spreads in the respiratory, digestive systems.

After some time, as the summers settle in, this phenomenon of kapha dosha also settles but in this change-over of seasons, it is likely to disturb our body and cause illness.

And when such a changes are very sharp, it has more impact on our health.

Many times we make a mistake, that since summers are in, we are more prone to eat cold things like a ice-creams, milk shakes. We also opt for fridge cold water, cold drinks more than usual. Walking in the Sun and then suddenly having a cold sharbat or cold drink is a common habit. But actually these intakes of cold food or cold drink helps the already toxic kapha dosha to spread more in our body. This causes fever, cold and cough.

Sudden weather change Allergies

Also there is one more very important factor in this season is Allergy. In this season, pollens are abundant in the weather. As air heats up due to summers pollen and dust particles starts spreading in the air in the huge amount. Many people are allergic to  dust and pollens. So people who are allergic to it, suddenly gets attacks of allergic cold and cough. If not controlled in time, it may lead to breathlessness.

So considering above all factors, we understand it is very important to protect ourselves from this change over season weather.
