What is Pitta?
In Ayurvedic principles, your Pitta is your fire principle. It is the energy needed for metabolism and heat in the body. Pitta regulates digestion, absorption and promotes balance in vitality and appetite. It is the alert, logical and intelligent aspect of the self.
A Pitta Imbalance can have some of the following indicators:
Generally feel warm, low tolerance to hot weather, prone to inflammatory conditions such as acne, rashes or heartburn, find yourself being overly competitive, aggressive or a perfectionist.

Ayurveda (pronounced EYE-YER-VAY-DAH) in Sanskrit means "knowledge of life". It is the art of holistic living and the oldest (5000 years old) medicine system in practice today. Ayurvedic philosophy indicates that everything in the universe is made up of 5 elements- fire, air, water, earth and space. These elements are combined under 3 energies known as 'Doshas' (body constitutions). The three doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha and represent the "subtle energy" that combines and balances the characteristics of the elements it influences. This force has to often combine and balance seemingly contrary forces such as fire and water under pitta. Vata combines air and space. While kapha brings water and earth together. The principle of balancing the body is done by first determining your Ayurvedic constitution or dosha type. When we recognize this, we can begin to create balance for ourselves in our health and lifestyle.
