What is pitta dosha?
Pitta dosha is composed of two elements 'fire' and 'water'. It regulates the hormones and enzymes produced in our body. Things like body temperature, digestive fire etc are controlled by pitta. A balanced state of bile is essential for good health. Bile is mainly found in the stomach and small intestine of the body.
Such people suffer from stomach related problems like constipation, indigestion, acidity etc. As soon as pitta dosha is imbalanced, digestion becomes weak and the food eaten is not digested properly. Pitta dosha causes loss of vigor and accumulation of kapha in the heart and lungs. In this article we are telling you about pitta dosha symptoms, nature, properties and ways to balance it.
Types of bile
Pittas are divided into five categories based on their habitats and different functions in the body.

The number of diseases caused by bile alone is estimated at 40.
Properties of bile
Glutinousness, heat, fluidity, acid and bitterness are the characteristics of bile. Bile causes digestion and heat and smells like raw meat.
