Arogya- Dosha Pitta

The elemental composition of Pitta consists of fire and water. It is commonly described as hot, light, sharp, oily, liquid, and mobile. Summer is known as the "pitta season" for its hot, sunny days.

The common translation of pitta is "that which digests things". According to ayurveda, this is the dosha responsible for our ability to mentally digest our life experiences and biologically digest our food. Pitta is responsible for all our chemical and metabolic transformations.

Dosha Pitta controls digestion, metabolism, and energy production. Pitta's main function is transformation. People who are mostly Pitta have a fiery nature that shows up in both the body and the mind.


Pittas are generally of average size and weight. They sometimes have bright red hair, but baldness or thinning hair is also common in Pittas. They have excellent digestion, which sometimes leads them to believe that they can eat anything. They have a warm body temperature. They sleep soundly for short periods of time and have a strong sex drive.

When in balance, Pittas have lustrous skin, perfect digestion, abundant energy, and a strong appetite. When out of balance, Pittas can suffer from rashes, burning sensations, peptic ulcers, excessive body heat, heartburn, and indigestion.


Pittas has a powerful intellect and a great ability to concentrate. When they are in balance, they are good at making decisions. They are precise, insightful, direct, and often outspoken. Unbalanced Pittas can be temperamental and argumentative. When Pittas are overrated, their typical response is, "What did you do wrong?"

Pittas tend to blame others, external circumstances, even the weather, for their bad mood.
