Although each person has one or more main constitution, it will also affect the distribution of the three elements- fire, air, and water energy, due to various internal and external factors. For example, age, season, living environment, thoughts, mindset, emotions, diet, work, rest, stress, treatment, physical activity, lifestyle habits, etc., will disrupt the balance of  our energy.

For instances, if the main body constitution is PITTA, when the three elements of fire, air, and water energies are balanced and if you follow the DO's & DONT's of your constitution to take care of yourself, there should be no major problem. You will be healthy and everything will be normal. However, if PITTA is under stress, lack of sleep and consumed excessive spicy foods, it will naturally increase the fire energy and make the fire energy particularly vigorous. PITTA may become grumpy, arouse anger and over digest. Malfunction, diarrhea, inflammation, liver dysfunction, dermatitis and other diseases can occur. 

PITTA

Pitta dosha is a combination of the Fire and Water elements. Pitta primarily governs enzymes, hormone reactions and essentially the whole metabolic system. Pitta dosha is responsible for intake and assimilation of both ideas and nutrients into the system. It regulates your thirst, hunger and body temperature.

Pitta dosha also controls eyesight, intelligence and understanding. The small intestine, stomach, seat glands, blood, fat, eyes and skin are the seats of Pitta. Psychologically, Pitta arouses anger, hate and jealousy.

 

Pitta characteristics are as follows:

  • Sharp
  • Hot
  • Liquid
  • Strong smelling
  • Slightly oily
  • Spreading

 

Pitta is associated with the following tastes:

  • Pungent
  • Sour

 

If your dosha is primarily pitta, you will manifest a sharp intellect and a matching appetite. Pitta dosha tends to mean a medium build, without the tendency to put on weight.

Pitta embodies passion, enthusiasm and vitality. Pitta dosha enjoys studying, have the ability to focus and generally have very good leadership skills. The downside is that pitta can become ‘fanatical’ if they become out of balance.

Remain awaken and conscious in every moment is extremely important, try to make "small actions, big changes" in our daily lives to prevent, restore ourselves, and achieve a healthy and balanced state of body, mind, and soul.
