ANGER, IRRITABLE, AMBITIOUS, ANALYTICAL
WHAT DOES IT MEAN? WHAT'S CAUSING IT? WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Are you prone to a problem with 'Anger, irritable, ambitious, analytical'?
Anger from DeficiencyVata anger comes from deficiency. Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels) can provoke a Vata type of irritability, when the liver becomes desperate for food.
Anger from ToxinsToxins can also provoke irritability. Poor bowel health and fermentation create imbalances in blood chemistry as toxins are released in the gut. These toxins and imbalances irritate the nervous system. Since the liver is responsible for maintaining the chemistry of the blood, irritability, ambition, and analytical thinking are considered to be a sign of liver distress.
Anger from HeatSometimes, anger and irritability are caused by heat. Hot weather stimulates extra blood flow. Your liver must extra work hard to keep up. Under these conditions your liver releases excess bile, which irritates both your gut and your nervous system. Flareups of frustration are common in summer, especially in Pitta Kapha individuals with excessive oily quality or sluggish gall bladder. In these individual, pent up rage comes to the surface with the heat. To avoid these flareups, take aloe vera prophylactically around 10am in the morning, or just when the sun in starting to get hot.
More about FrustrationFrustration is a deeper form of anger, often from congestion of bile. Frustration is often a sign of a stagnant gall bladder. After a rich, Kapha aggravating meal, the blood becomes thick & congested. The gall bladder becomes sluggish and won't release the bile. Spices, and other hot foods like red meat increase fire. When these two qualities mix, it forms an intense cocktail of aggression.
Anger from ShameAnger may also result from a burning sense of shame in the solar plexus area. According to Chinese medicine, the liver is a proud organ. When balanced, liver shame brings grace and elegance to a person's demeanor. When out of balance, the shame is too much to bear, and the liver becomes reactive, creating heat in the body. This heat "has a short fuse" - your temper and blood pressure may quickly rise when you are irritated or confronted.

HOW AYURVEDA WORKSARE YOU WONDERING HOW AYURVEDA CAN HELP YOU?
WHY IS AYURVEDA THE RIGHT SOLUTION?Ayurveda strengthens the body, in addition to addressing the disorder. It take a holistic, systemic approach, instead of myopically focusing on the disorder in question. Ayurveda shows a person how to interpret signs and symptoms of imbalance, and how to address them using materials from home, so they can optimize their health on a continual basis. You can't take the doctor home with you, but you can take Ayurveda home with you. Ayurveda is the most advanced and easy to use home system for self healing with an exceptional focus on digestion.
HOW DOES AYURVEDA WORK?Ayurveda starts by identifying your body type, which identifies certain tendencies in your body to get sick (as well as identifying your strengths). It uses body type to determine the likely root causes of your disorders. Next, Ayurveda analyzes the nature of your disorder. It fits all your signs and symptoms into a pattern, expressed as a combination of biocharaceristics (gunas). For example, you may have a heat disorder, a cold disorder, or an oily disorder, etc. This simple categorical approach shows you how to correct systemic imbalances and strengthen your body as a whole.
On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food so you can easily match food to your imbalanced biocharacteristics. By eating an optimal diet that balances your biocharacteristics, your whole body is strengthened and the conditions that created the disorder are removed. Once the root causes of the disease are removed, the disease lessens in strength or disappears altogether. Additional remedies - such as herbs and lifestyle practices - focused on the specific disorder, can greatly enhance your healing.
