Ayurveda teaches that three basic energies, the tridoshas (Kapha, Vata and Pitta) exist in everything in the universe and influence all mental and physical processes. We are all born with a particular balance of these doshas, but often our predominant dosha overpowers us and we feel stress. The Kapha, Vata and Pitta products you'll find in our range are formulated to restore balance to the mind and body. To find out more about Ayurvedic medicine, click here.
Like fire, Pitta people are energetic, dynamic and passionate, but destructive when out of control. They are known for their keen intelect, perfectionist tendencies and sharp anger. when balanced , they are the most intelligent, perceptive and courageous of the doshas. Warm, friendly, competitive, determined and indepndent, they make good leaders, but may pursue their strengths single-mindedly at the cost of holistic balance and compromise. Out of balance, Pittas can be impulsive, ambitious, aggressive, dominating, manipulative, angry and frustrated. When completely out of balance they can be hateful and vindictive, even psychopathic or criminal.
The Pitta body is usually of average build and good proportion. Pittas usually prefer cool climates, food and drink, and often have hearty appetites. When well fed and content, their natural heat creates courage and clarity.
