Pitta is one of the three Ayurvedic doshas or psycho-physiological body constitutions. Pitta is governed by fire and water elements. Those with Pitta as a primary dosha are strong-willed and intense by nature. An aggravated Pitta leads to inflammation in the body and mind. This may manifest in a person as a physiological ailment such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, fever, headaches, or psychological issues such as anger and irritability.
