Vata 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 Toxins
Toxins 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 Heat
Sometimes, 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 Frustration
Frustration 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 Shame
Anger 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.
