Your constitution type is Vata-Pitta

Governing both flow & transformation, your personality type is The Alchemist with qualities from both the Vata (the creative) and Pitta (the leader).

Generally, with this Bi-Dosha, Vata characteristics will dominate the physical attributes (thin boned) and Pitta (quick and easily hot-tempered) for emotional attributes.  Vata-Pitta can come across as "back and forth" with extremes varying from Pitta’s anger to Vata’s fear (think of the song “Hot N’ Cold” by Katy Perry). 

A healthy person with a Vata-Pitta predominant constitution is fun, loving, passionate and full of ideas. They are jet-setters with a purpose. They have the ability to be keenly insightful while also holding the big picture in view. They are go-getters driven by intensity.

Your constitution type is Vata-Pitta

How do you know when Vata-Pitta is imbalanced?

Vata-Pitta's imbalance can be seen in the form of anxiousness, lack of sleep, and inflammation in the skin (e.g. redness).  

In excess, the dry and rough qualities may manifest themselves as dry or brittle skin, lips, hair, nails, or bones (e.g. osteoporosis), as constipation, or as feeling “dry” emotionally.

Lifestyle
Rest is the number one medicine for calming Vata-Pitta. We recommend sleeping at regular hours of the day with at least 7-8 hours of sleep. Regularity is the name of the game; keep to a consistent schedule to stay grounded.
Exercise
If exercising, create balance with non-competitive activities like yoga, hiking, and swimming. Meditation is key, so remember to get your Zen on.
Diet
- Smooth, moist, sweet and warm foods will soothe Vata-Pitta - Avoid too much raw, dry, spicy foods (e.g. bread) and too much alcohol and caffeine - Grains (like oats and rice), soups, sweet fruits (like figs, coconuts, apricots) ghee and cooked vegetables are great meal options - Room temperature water, not iced or boiling hot
