CURD: A HEALTHY DELICACY FOR SUMMERS?????

Not really!!!

Curd is an integral part of Indian diet. Lassi, Chaach, Raitas, Yogurt etc. being its various forms. We use it vividly in summers to beat the heat but to add to your surprise, curd isn’t a summer commodity. It is basically to be consumed in winters.

 

Curd in DietsProperties of Curd:

Ayurveda attributes the following properties to dadhi or curd which will help you analyze when is the right time to consume curd:

  • Ushna (that which is heat generating): To us, curd appears to be cooling for body but the actual tendency of curd is ushna. In summers the bodily heat is added on by consumption of curd.
  • Guru (that which is heavy to digest): The digestion capacity reduces in summers. Hence, we demand usually liquids and light diet. Curd being heavy for digestion is therefore not advisable in summers.
  • Abhishyandi (that which blocks the fine channels of body): Curd, especially consumed in night hours, is not at all healthy. It blocks the fine channels of the body which over a period of time generates chronic ailments.

Therefore, looking into these basic properties of curd, its consumption is not advocated in Vasanta, Greeshma and Sharad Ritus (i.e. grossly from March till October).

Health Problems Due to Inappropriate Usage of Curd:

If the seasonal, combinational and time constraints are overlooked, it leads to various ailments. The mentioned ailments are:

  • Various skin problems (Kushta, Visarpa)
  • Fever (Jwara)
  • Bleeding disorders (Raktapitta)
  • Body swellings (Shotha) etc.

 

But knowing the fact that our palate enjoys curd and its derivatives in summers, you can always have it in a healthier form. There are a few guidelines on how to consume curd in summers which will reflect in my next article RIGHT TIPS TO HAVE CURD IN SUMMERS.

Till then eat healthy and live healthy. In case you have any personal queries regarding your health or diet practices, please feel free to contact me at vdshruti@gyanherbal.in.
