How Do You Balance Your Pitta Dosha in the Summer Months?

Currently in the West we are in the heart of pitta season, also known as summer. The qualities of pitta dosha are: hot, light, liquid, mobile, oily & sharp. Ayurveda teaches that like increases like. As this is a time when your pitta dosha tends to accumulate, you may find yourself feeling irritated or hot to the touch.

According to Ayurveda, excess dosha creates dis-ease in the body. Knowing the symptoms of excess pitta dosha can help you reset your diet and lifestyle. This, in turn, will help you feel energized, at peace and full of joy  as opposed to lethargic, critical and wanting to lash out at everyone in your path (Not that you would do that;).

David Frawley adds that she is, "the power of love that envisions the universe as creative play."
