In these modern times, it is imperative to take a little extra time and care. Otherwise, Pitta may manifest as anger, intolerance and criticism, or physically as acidity, inflammation and sensitive natures.

Healing Hands Massage and Ayurvedic Spa Specialist issues helpful hints on engaging a Pitta balanced Ayurvedic Lifestyle.Ayurvedic practitioners, understand that the Universe and all of its components are made up of five elements: space, air, fire, water, earth. Each element relates to one of the five human senses: speech, sight, sound, touch, taste. Ayurvedic medicine is based on the concept of tridosha, or the three doshas. Doshas are energetic forces that manifest from the five elements to support the basic functions of our mind body connection. All three doshas must work together in harmony to attain perfect well being.
Pitta is fire and provides heat. Water offers fluidity. United, they form the Pitta dosha, which has a heating, oily, sharp and penetrating quality and is responsible for chemical change. It controls mental activity including intelligence levels, reasoning, passion and the senses, as well as physical manifestations such as metabolism, hormonal activity, enzymatic behavior and body temperature.
An “in balance” Pitta is a warm, loving and content intellectual who is articulate, courageous and bold with focused concentration. They enjoy challenges as well as a strong digestion, a lustrous complexion and a sharp wit.
A Pitta who is “out of balance” is an irritable, inpatient and demanding perfectionist with a tendency towards frustration, skin rashes, premature grey hair and hair loss, inflammation, sensitivity, acidity and burning rashes.
Causes of Pitta imbalances: excessive heat, over-exposure to the sun, alcohol, smoking, deadlines, extraneous activities, spicy, sour or salty foods, skipping meals, hormonal changes.
Going Pitta - In order to gain a Pitta balance, the following are suggested:
- Ingest cool foods and drinks. Foods with predominantly sweet, bitter and astringent tastes.
- Install fresh flowers around the house.
- Bathe in the moonlight in flower baths.
- Take walks in cool air.
- Massage the head with coconut oil in the evening.
- Engage in team sports that promote competitiveness and cooperation, which are ideal.
- Enjoy sports such as hiking, which are vigorous and not ego producing.
- Meditate using colors such as blue and green.
- Use sapphire, aquamarine and azurite stones, carried on the right side of the body.
- Conduct regular liver-flushes by ingesting olive oil and fresh lemon juice without garlic or cayenne.
- Use silver on the body, although that is not a necessity.
- Avoid excessive saunas, hot tubs or over-sunbathing.
