Manage your Pitta

Pitta is oily, sharp, hot, light, fleshy-smelling, spreading, and liquid.

p1Having a pitta-predominant prakriti means that these qualities express themselves generously throughout your mental, emotional, and physical make up. You may find them reflected in your strengths and weaknesses.

The oily quality allows for softness of skin but, in excess, can manifest as oily skin, acne or perhaps the quality of being a “snake oil salesman”; manipulating situations to your advantage.
The sharp quality may manifest as a sharp, bright intellect or, in excess, as a sharp tongue.
“Hotness” can manifest as a warm, rosy complexion, warm body temperature, strong metabolism and appetite or, in excess, as ulcers, heartburn, or a hot temper.
The light quality may lead you to have a slender body or to get light-headed if you miss a meal.
The “fleshy-smelling” quality may manifest as a strong body odor.
The spreading quality may manifest as a tendency to spread your name or influence or opinion around the local or global neighborhood. This quality can also manifest as a spreading rash.
The liquid quality may manifest as excess sweating; when it’s combined with the hot quality it can present as excess stomach acid.

A basic tenet of Ayurveda is “like increases like.” Therefore, increasing the inherent qualities of pitta will increase pitta in your body, mind, and spirit. If  you experience hot weather, hot foods, the hot seasons and times of day, and even hot emotions can increase pitta. Likewise humid environments will increase the liquid quality and thereby increase pitta.

If pitta individual visits the equator for a vacation and sunbathe for six hours daily and enjoy hot, spicy food daily for one week. At the end of the week you suffer from an acute rash and terrible heartburn and find yourself in an awful temper. Ayurveda would say that your heat-increasing indulgences increased the natural heat in your pitta constitution and lead to hot conditions “erupting” in your body and emotions.

Manage your Pitta-Kapha Constitution

Being a pitta-kapha type means that two doshas are predominant in your constitution. It is usually best to manage a dual dosha prakriti according to the season. In general, as a pitta-kapha, follow a pitta-pacifying regimen during the late spring and summer seasons especially when the weather is hot. Follow a kapha-pacifying regimen during the cooler times of year like fall, winter and early spring and especially when the weather is cool and damp.

Manage your Vata-Pitta Constitution

Being a vata-pitta type means that two doshas are predominant in your constitution. It is usually best to manage a dual dosha prakriti according to the season. In general as a vata-pitta, follow a vata-pacifying regimen during the fall and winter seasons, during the change of seasons and especially when the weather is cold and windy. Follow a pitta-pacifying regimen during the spring and summer and especially when the weather is warm.

Being a vata-pitta-kapha type means that all three doshas are strong forces in your constitution. If you are one of the rare people who possess this prakriti, good news: you have a very sturdy constitution. You tend to get sick less than others and can tolerate a wide variety of seasons and environmental conditions. By nature, your constitutional forces will tend to balance each other and maintain a healthy equilibrium. Whether your doshas are quantitatively equal or one or two are a bit more dominant, the strategy for managing them is the same. You manage them primarily according to the season. In general, follow a vata-pacifying regimen during the fall and early winter, during the change of seasons and especially when the weather is cool, dry and windy. Follow a pitta-pacifying regimen during the late spring and summer seasons and especially when the weather is hot. Follow a kapha-pacifying regimen during the late winter and spring and especially when the weather is cool and damp.
