Ayurvedic Herbs for Pitta Dosha

Pitta dosha is the spirited go-getter. It is responsible for transformation and metabolic activity, including digestion and endocrine function. The elements associated with pitta are fire and water, and some of its qualities are hot, sharp, penetrating, intense, and sour. The primary site of pitta is the small intestine. People with pitta prakriti (innate constitution) tend to be passionate, ambitious, and courageous. They may also be competitive and quick to anger, especially if out of balance. This is also true of pitta vikriti (current state of being). Pitta imbalance may show up in pitta dosha symptoms such as the fiery emotions of anger, resentment, irritation, and frustration, and it may manifest in the skin as rashes and other skin conditions. Likewise, with the small intestine being the primary site of pitta, it can present itself in the bowels. But, with some lifestyle shifts and pitta-balancing herbs and practices, pitta balance is just one breath away.

Pitta-Balancing Herbs and More

Because pitta is inherently hot and sharp, its balancing qualities are the opposite. They include sweet, bitter, and astringent flavors; cooling foods and environments; and the attitude of surrender. Some beneficial Ayurvedic herbs for pitta dosha include amalaki, neem, brahmi/gotu kola, bhringaraj, licorice, kutki, and guduchi. Healthy Pitta combines many of these herbs into one convenient formula. Some other pitta-supportive Banyan formulas include Pitta Digest, Blood Cleanse, Joint Support, and Mental Clarity. Supporting pitta inherently means bringing coolness and softness to pitta’s heat and sharpness. This can be done by eating fresh, raw foods with cooling spices. In addition to the aforementioned herbs, coriander and fennel are good pitta-balancing options as well. Coconut oil offers its soothing and softening qualities to pitta as does our Pitta Massage Oil. And Nadi Shodhana Pranayama, or alternate nostril breathing, is a valuable practice that is calming and purifying to the whole body.
