Is Pitta your dosha?
SEE ALL REVIEWS & COMMENTS
Pitta people have a high metabolism characterized by heat and sharpness. Intelligent and effective problem solvers, they are goal-oriented individuals who succeed in their pursuits.
But they can also be intense, critical, and forceful. When faced with an obstacle they may quickly become irritable, angry, or frustrated.
They often direct criticism at themselves and those closest to them, which can disrupt relationships.
And as their pride is easily wounded, they may push themselves beyond their limits.
Fortunately, Ayurveda offers easy lifestyle practices for Pittas.
And adopting them allows unbalanced Pitta folks to regain a relaxed and productive life.

Unfortunately, this hypervigilance quickly burns up their biological resources, especially their adrenals and nervous system.
