Ayurveda — Foods To Avoid For Pitta Dosha
In Ayurvedic medicine, everyone has a specific dosha that will determine the foods, activities and lifestyle that is best suited for their combination.
These doshas are based on the elements: space, air, fire, water, and earth. and are categorized by Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. When these three doshas are in balance, mentally, spiritually, and physically, good health is experienced. When our doshas are out of balance, we begin to experience illness.
Once you’ve determined you’re dosha, you will have a better idea of how to care for your combination and live a healthier, more balanced life.
This quick Ayurvedic Intake will help you determine your unique dosha.
