Pitta pacifying fruits to balance Pitta Dosha

Pitta governs all heat, metabolism and transformation in the mind and body. It is the dosha type which is symbolized by heat and aggressiveness.  Today we will be telling you the fruits recommended to balance Pitta dosha.

Pitta is oily, sharp, hot, light, spreading, and liquid, so eating foods that neutralize these qualities – foods that are dry, mild, cooling, grounding, stabilizing, and dense – serve to balance excess pitta.

Your body type/dosha decides whether your body is going to grow or to decline. If we feed wrong diet to our body, then automatically it will result bad leading to devastation of our health.
