The Book of Pitta

-->
In this page, you will find articles, recipes, and tips to balance or enrich your Pitta dosha.

My first suggestion to you is to incorporate bitter food in your diet, like dandelion salads and endives. 


My second suggestion is to reduce the intake of fats and oils. This aggravates your dosha and makes the liver work more than necessary.

Get familiar with aloe vera gel (not the juice, which is heating) and the herb triphala. These two will surely put down the excess heat in your body.

If you are already familiar with the first step of the Pitta diet, and you are ready to make your second step of food refinement, I suggest to remove wheat and meat from your diet. Make sure you are taking 2 li. of fresh water a day. After 40 days of that change, you can incorporate 2 or 3 days of mung dhal monodiet to detox the liver and give your digestion system a break.
