SOS to reduce pitta dosha.

Those unexpected skin rushes, or inflamed red eyes, or any infection or inflammation in the body is a sing of high pitta.
We can take a drastic approach to reduce it by increasing the bitter taste in our diet. You can also eliminate from your diet all food and only each kichadee for 3, 7 or 10 days with  stir-fried bitter melons.

You can include in your diet drinks that are fresh and cooling like, fresh coconut water, aloe vera gel, mint tea, and pomegranates juice. Make it plentiful during the day.
You can keep this diet until symptoms disappears.  Consult your ayurvedic practitioners  for more indications to reduce pitta dosha.

How to make simple bitter melon stir fry.

  • select 1 large unripe and firm bitter gourd (the ripened ones are extremely bitter). It should have a solid, light green color, without any signs of yellow or orange color on the skin.

  • to reduce the bitterness, soak chopped pieces for 30 minutes in water with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and juice from a half lemon.

  • Remove the peel and chop into small pieces.

  • Stir-fry in coconut oil with fennel seeds and salt. In case of extreme pitta, streaming is preferable to frying.

  • Sprinkle with the juice of one small lime.
