8 Ayurvedic Home Remedies to Calm Your Pitta Dosha


Pitta dosha is the energy that controls the body's metabolism and a variety of energetic transformations, like how thoughts are processed and perceived on a mental and sensory level. So, we can say that it helps us differentiate between right and wrong and aids digestion.

On the other hand, the body may experience many unusual changes as the Pitta dosha levels rise. This blog will discuss these changes and how to manage them by reducing Pitta. Therefore, buckle up, and let's begin. 


What is Pitta dosha?

Pitta dosha is composed of fire and water and is at the essence of the metabolic system, the workings of our bodies such as digestion, absorption, assimilation and the governing of body temperature.

In balance, Pitta promotes understanding and intelligence, and out of balance, it creates excessive anger, frustration and irritation, skin problems, acidity, and inflammatory disorders in the body. 


Symptoms of Vitiated Pitta Dosha

As previously stated, the body can change in a variety of ways. In this section, we discuss some typical symptoms of excess Pitta dosha:

Physical Effects Because of Vitiated Pitta Dosha:

  • Heat makes the body feel hotter and makes it uncomfortable.
  • Joint pain can be caused by body inflammation.
  • Increased heat in the stomach can lead to ulcers, acid reflux, and heartburn.
  • Indigestion, constipation, difficulty digesting
  • Frustration, irritability, and anger all rose.
  • Increased body odor and sweating.
  • Increased thirst and hunger.
  • Headaches that feel like they're burning

How to Balance Pitta Dosha With Ayurvedic Treatment?

Effective Panchkarma Treatment for Imbalance Pitta Dosha:

Virechana is the sedated purgation treatment that scrubs the body from the Pitta Dosha and eliminates toxins from the gastrointestinal tract, liver, and nerve bladder. 

Virechana is a sodhana (purification) treatment. This is typically finished after Snehapana and three days of fomenting. Medication will be in any structure, fluid or powder, or decoction and should be taken while fasting. Before taking the medication, the patient should hydrate regularly until defecations start.

Pitta dosha is seated in the stomach, intestine, lymph, sweat, skin, blood, and eyes. Pitta is predominantly seated in the navel. That’s why it is vital to naturally expel excess dosha from the navel area.

When you opt for Panchkarma treatment for pitta imbalance, the vitiated pitta gets expelled from the body through the anal route, pitta dosha gets balanced, and the health problems caused by pitta dosha get cured.

Ayushakti’s detoxification Panchkarma treatments are highly focused on relieving the root cause of any chronic problem by cleansing, repairing and rejuvenating the deeper tissues and cells in your body.  Click here to check out our Panchkarma Detoxification Plan
