The ancient healing system of Ayurveda teaches that three basic forces, the tridoshas (Kapha, Vata, Pitta) exist in everything in the universe and influence all mental and physical processes. We are all born with a particular balance of these doshas. Our body type, temperament and susceptibility to illness are largely governed by our predominant dosha.
Like fire, Pitta people are energetic, dynamic and passionate but destructive when out of control. They are known for their keen intellect, perfectionist tendencies, and sharp anger. When balanced, they are the most intelligent, perceptive and courageous of the doshas. Warm, friendly competitive determined, and independent, they make good leaders, but may pursue their strengths single-mindedly at the cost of holistic balance and compromise. Out of balance Pittas can be impulsive, ambitious, aggressive, dominating, manipulative, angry and frustrated.. When completely out of balance they can be hateful and vindictive even psychopathic or criminal.
The Pitta body is usually of average build and good proportion. Pittas usually prefer cool climates, food and drink, and often have hearty appetites. When well fed and content, their natural heart creates courage and clarity. Pitta people need cool, sweet-smelling scents to keep the mind calm, cool and balanced.
