Pitta Herbal Remedies
Herbal teas including lemongrass, mint or rose can help balance Pitta’s fiery properties.
In order to be well in the practice of Ayurveda, we focus on balancing mind, body, and soul. Central to this philosophy are the three metabolic types or “doshas,” known as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. These doshas represent the fundamental energies that govern our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. A proper balance among dosha types is essential for creating harmony in these categories of wellbeing, as imbalances can lead to illness and disease. Each person has a unique ratio of all three dosha types and understanding your primary dosha will allow you to adapt the products, practices, and lifestyle choices in your daily routine to achieve holistic balance inside and out.
While all three doshas are present in every individual human, it is the ratio of each energy that determines your unique dosha type. If you are a hybrid type, two doshas are prominent in your constitution. These ratios can vary through life due to age, environment, and lifestyle. We encourage you to return to this quiz seasonally and adapt your daily habits and routines as needed to achieve optimal holistic wellness.
In Ayurveda, each of the four seasons (winter, spring, summer, fall) is associated with a corresponding dosha type. As the seasons change in your external environment, the dosha type associated with that season will naturally increase in your internal environment ie. your dosha constitution. Pitta is associated with Summer due to their shared hot and fiery qualities. Because this is your primary dosha type, take extra care to incorporate Pitta-pacifying practices in your routine this time of year!
