Rule#1: Pitta

What type of Digestion (Agni) do you have?

Pitta: energy of transformation


Pitta is the energy of friction that creates heat. Heat burns the heavier elements to create  something new: transformation. People with a predominance of Pitta dosha crave transformation. They tend to move full throttle towards putting a vision into  action.

Pittas have strong digestion that tends towards sharpness and acidity. The sharp quality becomes evident when meals are skipped – which will lead to mental agitation. The pH acidity is due to the acidic reactive nature of
fire and fire types, which is why pitta digestion is balanced by a fresh alkaline predominant diet of freshly prepared foods and cooling foods. Hot spices, meat, alcohol, caffeine, chocolate and processed foods easily aggravated fire types who already experience a weakness in their liver due to acidic blood filtration.


Pittas thrive on a diet with a steady intake of dark leafy greens, sweet fruits, sprouts and sprouted legumes, grains, raw dairy, and non-oily nuts and seeds. Raw foods are particular helpful for pittas,who have the least tolerance towards the chemical nature of conventional “food”. Self- massage with coconut oil is helpful. Besides a satisfying lunch, the most important lifestyle balancer for pitta is allowing time for pleasant jovial evenings with family or friends.
