Pitta Profile - Metabolism

"Moderation and keeping cool is the key..."

Pitta is the hot dosha, governing all heat, metabolism and transformation in the mind and body. It processes food, air, and water through the entire system and converts these elements into energy. Pitta also helps with the digestion and assimilation of experiences, thoughts and feelings, and how we discriminate between right and wrong.
