Chronic anger issues are a disease causative factor but with the right approach, you can regain your peace of mind and bid goodbye to anger and irritability.
Anger is caused by an excess of pitta dosha.
With certain lifestyle changes and therapies, you can pacify the pitta and control your anger.
Each and every one of us experiences anger when our brain reacts to the negative stimuli around us. But while anger is normal, it is also harmful to us. Excessive anger can be the root cause of many diseases, including high blood pressure and coronary complications. Furthermore, it also takes away from our peace of mind and leaves us feeling agitated and unhappy.
According to Ayurveda, anger is caused by an aggravated pitta in the mano vaha srotas (channels of the mind), so the first thing you must do is balance the pitta.
Since pitta has a light, hot, sharp and liquid tendency, including these properties in your lifestyle, diet, or even relationships causes the pitta to get further aggravated. Instead, surround yourself with things that are heavy, nourishing, cool, dry and stabilizing.
Avoid all hot and spicy foods. Instead, eat a diet of foods that naturally favour the sweet, bitter, and astringent tastes, such as tulsi (holy basil), khajoor (dates), kaju (cashews), haldi (turmeric), leafy greens, til (sesame), jeera (cumin), safed chana (chickpeas), anaar (pomegranate) and dhania (coriander).
When the anger hits us, it hard to think clearly, but in these moments you need to ensure your brain gets an adequate supply of oxygen. For this, do deep breathing exercises every day so that when you get angry, your body naturally starts breathing deeper.
Nasya is an Ayurvedic therapy that helps hydrate and soothe the channels of the mind, hence making it easier to manage anger. It involves putting a few drops of ghee in both nostrils daily before bed.
