Pitta Dosha

What is Pitta?

Pitta runs the engines of the body–it represents the metabolic fires that keep the body going. Digestion, perception and senses are all made possible by Pitta.

What goes wrong when your pitta is not in balance? Fevers, nausea, short tempers and more.

Doctors recommend balancing out this dosha with food that is not very spicy and is believed to have a cooling effect on the body. Various Ayurvedic medicine promote Pitta balance, like Brahmi oil, for example.

This post is a brief introduction to Ayurvedic concepts, and is not meant to replace a medical practitioner’s counsel.
