Hello Mansoor, 

Drinking cold water when you are thirsty may make you feel good but it is not good for the body. It is always best to drink water at room temperature. Our body is made up of five elements i.e. akash, vayu, agni, jal and prithvi. Feeling thirsty indicates that the jal mahabhuta is getting out of balance and it needs to be balanced. The best way to maintain your body's jal mahabhuta in equilibrium is to drink water with gratitude towards it in a certain way. 

Keep the water in a copper vessel and that vessel should be kept at a place where it is not surrounded by anything. Whenever you drink water from it, have a gratitude towards it for keeping your body healthy. Drinking water from copper vessel is best as it has many benefits. 

Itching in neck, cough and cold indicates that you have allergies to some food products. Food allergy results due to our immune system malfunction. Our immune system considers some foods as pathogens and reacts to them resulting in allergies. Certain foods become intolerant for the body in this condition. Common symptoms that a person experiences are tingling in the mouth, burning sensation in mouth and lips, skin rashes, itching, etc.

Foods to eat

  • Start your the day with 3 to 4 glasses of warm water. This will help to flush out the toxins out of the body. 
  • Eat only plant-based natural foods. 
  • Drink green tea twice a day, one in the morning on an empty stomach and the other at night before sleeping. 
  • Have whole grains like barley, millets, oats, etc in place of refined grains.
  • Avoid refined grains, refined oils, and refined sugars as they may trigger the allergic reaction and are also not good for the health.
  • Avoid dairy foods and animal products as they may also be the reason for allergies since they are not for the human digestive system. 
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. 
  • Say no to alcohol, tobacco, and smoking. 
  • Drink freshly prepared homemade fruit juices. 


  • Start the day with a short morning walk of at least 30 min. This will help to increase blood circulation in the body. 
  • Perform 12 sets of suryanamaskar daily. It involves 12 asanas and is very beneficial for the whole body.
  • Do plank for 5 minutes. 
  • Perform anulom-vilom and kapalbhati pranayam. 
  • Take early morning sun rays daily for 20 minutes.


Sleeping pattern affects the circadian rhythm. Hence, it is essential to have proper quality sleep daily.

Take proper sleep of at least 7-8 hours daily. Sleep early at night and also wake up early in the morning. Read books before sleeping for an improved quality of sleep.
