Also remember that Pitta season runs from July to October. As soon as the first heat waves of summer roll around, most of us feel the effects of the increased Pitta in the atmosphere — perhaps a shorter fuse than usual, maybe more irritability and frustration, occasionally outbursts of anger. Whether you are predominantly Pitta by constitution or not, take measures to keep the fire element in balance during the heat of the summer.
Pitta governs metabolism and transformation in the body, including digestion. Signs of excess Pitta include occasional heartburn, excessive body heat and sweating, skin rashes, acne, excess stomach acidity, peptic ulcers, early graying, irritability and anger. These may appear to be unrelated issues, but from the ayurvedic perspective, measures to "pacify" Pitta can put you back in balance.
There are simple things you can do to pacify Pitta that will help you enjoy summer more and ensure that the excess heat does not create imbalance in mind and body, including this delicious recipe for summer pasta.
