Drink RO Water Only
Make sure that you're drinking water is cleaned and boiled, as it'll help in reducing the chances of any water-borne disease. Going by the Ayurveda, drinking boiling water, especially during rainy season, makes it more digestible and is good for those suffering from poor digestion.
Use herbs and spices
Using herbs and spices in your daily diet will boost your immunity and make you strong from the inside. Some herbs like turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, garlic, mint and holy basil are examples of antioxidants that are beneficial for your health.
Wash fruits and veggies properly
This monsoon try bitter vegetables like bitter gourd, bottle gourd, neem, etc, as they can help improve your digestion and increase your immunity. Don't eat any uncooked meal or salads unless they're organic and can be properly cleaned.
