Emotions are a natural part of our physical existence. Everyone expresses emotions differently. We are unique individuals with multitudes of factors determining how and why we behave the way we do. When emotions are expressed in a destructive manner, it is easy to label them as negative or a hindrance to our growth.

However, understanding emotion as simply energy that can be channeled through the body can support more creative and healthy expression.

As the dosha comprised of mostly fire with a little water, pitta is all about digestion and transformation. We have much to be thankful for when it comes to this dosha: it’s closely tied to intelligence, comprehension, and, of course, digesting everything we consume—from the food we eat to our experiences, thoughts, and feelings. This is the dosha behind our motivation, drive, metabolism, understanding, and so much more.
But when this fiery dosha goes out of balance, it can lead to a slew of issues for the whole person, physically, mentally, and emotionally—such as anger, irritability, being quick to judge and criticize, digestive issues, excess heat throughout the physiology, and skin imbalances, to name a few.
If this sounds familiar and you’re experiencing a pitta imbalance, don’t fret—Ayurveda offers ample resources to help you come back to balance. There are plenty of herbs for pitta and suggestions that can help you incorporate a pitta diet and lifestyle. Make changes in a way that feels empowering and inspiring to you.
