Pitta people are those strong head ones out there. They are very reliable in nature to depend on. Your biggest strength is the organized mind and with an incredible metabolism rate. Being a Pitta, leveraging a determined mindset is too easy for you. There is so much of steady, consistency and constant growth in your life always. When the dosha becomes aggravated, the irritation, anger, inflexibility and also accompanied with hypertension comes out. 

Only by creating a lifestyle that offers a stability between water and fire (elements of Pitta), Pitta dosha can be balanced. It also forms a path to enjoy the life by attaining a full peace.

How to regain your steady and organized life back?

If the pitta is imbalanced, it can lead to anger and agitation, and may even cause burning disorders such as ulcers and inflammation. They lose that tactfulness mindset they have when their dosha gets aggravated and they become too inflexible and unable to see all the options.

When you keep a watch on your digestive fire and your environment you can easily bring down your aggravated Pitta Dosha.  To maintain a balance, meditation, massages and inhaling cooling scents such as rose, mint and lavender can help relax the body.
