How to Balance Pitta Dosha
In Ayurvedic medicine, the ‘doshas’ are three energies that are believed to govern physiological activity and circulate in the body. Pitta dosha has the primary function of transformation and controls metabolism, digestion and energy production. Those that have a predominance of Pitta dosha demonstrate a nature that is considered ‘fiery’ in both mind and body.
Pitta dosha characteristics include individuals with medium weight and size, warm body temperatures and the ability to have short sound sleep cycles. Symptomatic problems of a dominance of the Pitta include burning sensations, skin rashes, indigestion and other digestive problems and excessive body heat. When balanced, they make excellent teachers and decision makers, when out of balance they become argumentative with the potential of short tempers. Other symptoms of a dominant Pitta dosha can include loose stools, inflammation of body joints and other areas, an abundance of perfectionist attitudes, irritability and intolerance.
To achieve a balance in Pitta dosha, there are three philosophies: Moderation, Cooling and Surrendering.
On the positive side, you need to encourage and enjoy a good balance of dietary practices, organic is recommended:
*Naturally sweet, astringent and bitter foods as well as those that are cooled in temperature and energetically.
*A good balance of cooked, fresh and raw foods, preferably organic.
*Beans are an excellent choice to balance the Pitta dosha.
*Spices and herbs such as cilantro, coriander, cardamom and fennel
*You can drink dairy, but avoid drinking any milk with your meals; instead drink one hour before or after any other foods.
*Establish a set routine for all of your meals, making sure that you have a peaceful, calm environment.
*Once you consume the last bite of a meal, take a deep relaxing breath before continuing with your day.
To encourage a balanced Pitta dosha you need to pay attention to avoid:
*Any foods that are salty, sour or pungent.
*Warming foods in either temperature or energetically.
*Spicy and hot chili as well as cayenne peppers.
*High processed foods such as frozen foods, canned, pastries and prepackaged ‘lunch or dinner’ style frozen meals.
*Consuming fresh fruit juices and fruit within a half hour of eating any other foods.
*Red meat, which is considered harsh for digestion.
*Any of the deep fried foods.
*An occasional white wine or beer is ok, but stay away from any hard alcohol.
*Any stimulants such as caffeine or nicotine.
An attempt to balance Pitta dosha also means altering the desire to control and instead, surrender. This can be a challenge, but one that will bring about a better understanding of self. Establish a routine for your day and evening, including regular times for working, eating and sleeping. Ensure that you have sufficient ‘relax and play time’ to balance the day. During your routines, surround yourself with soothing company, scenes, scents, and music. Add a moderate exercise routine such as yoga, bike riding or swimming at least five times a week, but make sure you avoid any exercise during the hottest parts of the day. Focus on maintaining a cool body and mind. Add a self-massage regiment with coconut oil or sunflower oil prior to bathing.
