Ayurveda believes that the heat of the Summer depletes body strength. Also, intimacy increases heat in the body when the ideal thing to do during Summer is to cool down via cooling activities. Hence Ayurvedic* wisdom suggests reducing intimacy to a minimum during the Summer season.
*Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of traditional natural healing in the world. Also known as the sister of Yoga, it stresses deeply on nutrition and lifestyle for optimal health.
Ayurveda believes that there are three bio energies ie Vata ( Air and Ether Elements), Pitta ( Fire and Water ) and Kapha ( Earth and Water) within the body and their balance or imbalance determines the state of good or ill health .
