Herbs that Help Balance Pitta Dosha

Pitta dosha is reflected by the elements of fire (Agni) and water (Jal). This dosha is light, sharp, hot and fluid. It exerts direct influence on your energy, metabolism, and digestion. An unbalanced pitta creates an uncomfortable feeling of heat in the body, causes acute inflammation in the joints, and leads to other complaints like indigestion, constipation, and diarrhea.

It is rather uncommon to have a balance of all three dosha. However, when this balance is maintained, an individual can enjoy the best of health.

Here are a few herbs that can help you balance your pitta dosha:

  • Prepare a mixture of honey and haldi (turmeric). Have it daily if you are congested. Remember not to overdo it because it can be quite heating.

  • Adrak is a pungent herb that is known to aggravate pitta. However, avoid having too much of it during the hotter days or if pitta is already aggravated.

  • Use less of heating spices and ginger, and more of Elaichi (cardamom) and kesar (saffron).

  • Leave washed brahmi leaves in water to diffuse overnight. Have this tonic every morning. Brahmi has an ability to balance all three doshas, especially pitta and vata. This herb can also be used to purify the mind and promote sleep because of it’s relaxing effects.

  • Use finely chopped coriander in soups, vegetables, and other dishes as a garnish. Coriander is a tridoshic herb that can be used to balance all three doshas.

  • A regular intake of a mixture of Amla, Haritaki and Vibhitaki in moderation effectively balances all three doshas, especially pitta and kapha. Have this mixture twice a day in a glass of warm milk. It enhances all thirteen digestive fires (agni).

To decrease pitta, Ayurveda has given us dietary, lifestyle and herbal recommendations. Some hers are useful allies when it comes to balancing the doshas, and you should find ways to include them in your diet.
