San Diego Pitta Ayurveda

The basic principles of Ayurveda include balancing the three basic Doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each Dosh is made of two of the five elements of nature.

Pitta (water and fire) body types tend to be of medium proportions with more muscularity, with a medium frame, warm slightly oily skin that is very fair or ruddy and may be sensitive. Their hair often is fine and tends towards premature graying or thinning. They are made of the two elements, fire and water. Pitta dominate people are known for their strong digestive fire not only in food, but in all things of life. Purpose driven, they are sharp and determined in thought, speech and action. There is intensity to their voice. They can have difficulty sleeping due to over active brain, and prefer cooler environments. Self-confidence, leadership and an entrepreneurial spirit are hallmarks of balanced Pitta.

Unbalanced Pitta can be critical, and have difficulty with anger, perfectionism, abrasiveness, acidic stomach, hypertension, and skin rashes or acne.

To balance Pitta…
  • Avoid excessive heat
  • Avoid excessive oil
  • Avoid excessive steam
  • Limit salt intake
  • Eat cooling, non-spicy foods
  • Drink cool (but not iced) drinks
  • Exercise during the cooler part if the day
