Your constitution type is Pitta

Governing change and intense energy, your personality type is one of "The Warrior", with overall qualities of hot, focused and all-consuming.  Hence, fire is your representing element.

Pitta is responsible for the “heat” and metabolism of the body. It is Pitta that transforms your food to energy and also gives you the power for radical change. Pitta can also manifest as quick bursts of anger, frustration, or becoming over critical, when imbalanced. When it is well-behaved, its specialty is maintaining a sharp, unyielding focus, like an arrow to a target.


A healthy person with a Pitta-predominant constitution is passionate, determined, and intellectually sharp. They are the "movers and shakers" of society with intensity in their presence, a strong frame, and driven with an analytical mind. A balanced Pitta quickly recognizes the truth in situations and maintains the flexibility to change to match life’s rhythms.

Your constitution type is Pitta

How do you know when Pitta is imbalanced?

Imbalance for Pitta shows up in the form of acne, acid reflux, anger, irritability and inflammation.

Early signs can be seen in the form of bodily inflammation: in the joints or issues with the skin in the form of acne, eczema, or red spots.  Heartburn, acid reflux and ulcers are also a physical sign of excessive Pitta.  Emotionally, you may feel stressed, intense, overly critical, impatient, and have perfectionist, controlling qualities (yes, if you're a Type A, we gotchu).

Lifestyle
Relax. Take a moonlight walk, a dip in the pool. Think cooling and healing, turn down all that natural heat. Be spontaneous and go with the flow, lean into the life’s natural ebb and flow. Loosen your grip and practice the art of surrender.
Exercise
When exercising, work with forms that are calm and steady like a vinyasa yoga class, hikes in nature, and moderate biking.
Diet
  • More: sweet, cooling, and heavy will pacify Pitta (e.g. coconut water, coconut oil, juice, smoothies, salads, yogurt, cucumber)
  • Less: pungent (spicy), sour, and salty foods (e.g. sriracha)
  • Good condiments: cumin, coriander, mint, fennel and cardamom
  • Hydration is the name of the game; drink cold water throughout the day.
