Pitta Dosha

When you know which dosha and what kind of imbalances you have, you can adjust your lifestyle and nutrition to balance it and feel much better and healthier. Ayurveda has offered natural techniques for antiaging and wellbeing for 4000 years! If you have a strong Pitta dosha constitution, you will recognize some of these qualities. In hot summer months and from adolescence till the elderly years, we all feel these qualities more. 

We are soon going to dive deeper into Pitta dosha and how to balance this end of summer accumulation of fire, on my free webinar on the 14th of September.

So raise your hand below in the comments, if you recognize yourself in the qualities of Pitta, the dosha of fire! I am a combination of Vata and Pitta and a little bit of Kapha. So I have many of these qualities in my life. Are you like me?
