Pitta, one of the three Ayurvedic constitutions in Ayurveda, is a tricky dosha.
When it gets aggravated, it’s common to feel fever, burning sensations, inflammation, or infections.
Mentally, it shows as anger and irritability.
The Pitta fire can, however, be controlled by drinking a cooling vegetable juice.
This is the recipe (video below), so you can start reducing the uncomfortable signs of Pitta intensification in your mind and body.
Are you Pitta dosha?
Pitta dosha, according to Ayurveda, is oily, sharp, hot, light, unpleasant in odor, mobile, and liquid.
These qualities can be evident, for example, in the skin, hair, digestion, and elimination.
Nevertheless, the vitiation of this constitution not only affects the body, but the mind and emotions can suffer its fiery power too.
For example, when we get Pitta vitiated, signs of a sharp tongue, impatience, and bad temper will typically emerge.
Take my dosha quiz today to discover your dominant dosha.
What can make you Pitta aggravated?
Several factors can vitiate a dosha.
Whether it is Vata, Pitta, or Kapha, the way you live and eat greatly influence the internal balance of your body.
Things that can vitiate Pitta are:
- Too much sun
- Oily, hot and spicy food
- Too much coffee
- Toxic relationships
- Over exercising
There are several ways to help you cool down if you are suffering from an aggravated Pitta dosha.
One way is to increase the consumption of raw foods and salads.
This FREE Pitta Meal plan can help you get started.
In addition, vegetable juices are an excellent strategy. I’d like to point out that the green juice I suggest here does not include fruit because the sweet taste tends to increase ama or toxic waste.
By drinking this healing green juice in the morning, you are dispelling toxins from your body. You are also kindling your digestive fire and pacifying the Pitta dosha.
This is the refreshing recipe!
