Ayurveda: PITTA-Type

Ayurveda: PITTA-Type

The Ayurveda Experience October 08, 2015

PITTA-Type people are generally of medium size and well proportioned. They are more muscular, and athletic. They have a medium amount of physical energy and stamina. They also tend to be intelligent and have a sharp wit and a good ability to concentrate. They make good leaders and businesspeople. Examples of Pitta celebrities include Madonna, Julianne Moore, and Brad Pitt.

Fire is a characteristic of Pitta, whether it shows up as fiery red hair or a short temper. Since Pittas’ body temperature is generally warm, Pitta types can go out of balance with overexposure to the sun. Their eyes are sensitive to light. They are ambitious by nature but also can be demanding and abrasive when out of balance.

Pitta Types are known for their strong digestion but should be careful not to abuse it. Their heat makes them particularly thirsty, and they should take caution not to douse their agni, or digestive fire, with too much liquid during meals.

Pitta Dosha leads us to crave moderation and purity. We rely on Pitta to regulate our intake of food, water & air. Any toxins, such as alcohol or tobacco, show up as a Pitta imbalance. Toxic emotions such as jealousy, intolerance, and hatred also should be avoided to keep Pitta in balance for optimum Health.
