Pitta

The Dragon; transformation

 

Pitta dosha, made up predominantly of the Fire element (with just a touch of water), rules digestion and transformation. Individuals high in Pitta dosha digest not only food quickly, but also information and experiences. This strong fire makes individuals high in Pitta dosha courageous and ambitious, but can also lead to inflammation, especially in their skin and eyes.
