A LITTLE ABOUT YOU
While there is undoubtedly no one quite like you out there, it is remarkable how accurate Ayurveda can be in predicting who we are, based simply on the broad strokes of our constitutions.
As you read through this page and start to piece together the ways in which the elements have shaped your constitution, you will probably begin to see your particular strengths and vulnerabilities more clearly.
Traits that you can likely attribute to your constitution
Well-proportioned skeletal frame
Medium in size, much like your overall bone structure and build. Your musculature is naturally lean but athletic, and your weight probably tends to remain fairly steady. Your face is generally heart-shaped, and you may have sharp facial features like a pointed nose and a tapered chin. Your eyes are probably medium in size, light in color, and can be sensitive to bright light, while your gaze is piercing.
Intelligent and discerning
With good concentration and memory, articulate speech, and a mind that is as keen, insightful, and studious as it is focused and driven. In fact, you almost certainly love a good intellectual challenge.
Ambitious, hard-working, disciplined, dependable, and wise
But you may sometimes feel like your iron will or your competitive nature win out over other aspects of who you are.
Strong and consistent appetite
You are almost certainly blessed with naturally strong digestion
A lot of energy to offer the things that you are passionate about
While your stamina is moderate by nature, your will is quite strong, which gives you the capacity to push yourself when you so desire. In fact, you are highly capable of convincing both yourself and others that you have far more reserves of strength and stamina than you do in reality.
Signs of imbalance
When a dosha (vata, pitta, kapha) goes out balance you are on the route to disease. Therefore it is important to recognise when one of the doshas has increased beyond its normal level. Since your dominant constitution is vata you are most likely to experience a vata imbalance first.
Irritability, anger, impatience, judgment, criticism, and jealousy
Intense hunger, excessive thirst, a sense of insatiability
Skin that is hot to the touch
Excessive heat and sweating
Why is it important to know this?
According to Ayurveda, you were born with your constitution and this remains the same during your whole life.
It influences your physiology, your physique, your likes and dislikes, your tendencies and habits, your mental and emotional character, as well as your vulnerabilities toward imbalance and disease.
Your personal combination of vata, pitta and kapha represents your body’s natural balance.
Our intention here is to introduce you to your constitution.
It’s important to know that we all have all three doshas in our constitutions: vata, pitta, and kapha. But the ratio between them is entirely unique to you.
That said, as a pitta type, your constitution is distinctly pitta-predominant, and you probably have a lot in common with other pitta types who share that core distinction.
How to regain balance
As you have read above there are multiple factors that can cause an imbalance in your body. Therefore finding the root cause is the most important. Whether this is your diet, things in your life, or emotional traumas that are pushing your body out of balance.
Once you find this, you can make sure to regain balance.
This might mean you could:
Make changes in your diet: Pitta's can use nourishing and cooling meals that keep that digestion stable.
Start implementing Ayurvedic lifestyle tools: Fort pitta's it is important to set bouderies, think of times to take a break. Otherwise you will tend to go past your limits and eventually deplete yourself.
Start using Ayurvedic herbs: To help cool down the body pitta can use some herbs to help them cool down from the inside out.
Release suppressed emotions: Tools like meditation, none dominant hand writing, body work, and energy healing can be effective to release emotions. Like anger, jealousy and criticism without hearting anyone.
