The Pitta Stress Type

According to the ancient medical science of Ayurveda, there are three unique types of stress: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

  • Anger, impatience
  • Hyper-focus
  • Overly critical of themselves and others
  • Acne 
  • Ulcers, heartburn and digestive discomfort

Our Pitta Focus & Balance CBD capsules are made with a formula that was specifically designed to alleviate Pitta stress symptoms.

diet recommendations

Pitta stress, characterized by Fire and Water, tends to create excess heat in the body. This means that eating foods that help your body cool down will help you cope with Pitta stress symptoms:
Add the following foods to your diet:
  • Raw and/or cooked leafy greens (kale, spinach, swiss chard, lettuce, arugula)
  • Cooling foods (coconut, cucumber, cilantro, juicy fruits, apple, banana avocado)
Reduce your intake of the following foods:
  • Spicy foods (chilies, mustard, pepper, tobasco)
  • Sour foods (tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplant)
  • Fermented foods (kombucha, yogurt, alcohol)
Avoid overeating—keep an eye on portion size

movement tips

Because your Pitta stress symptoms likely have you feeling intense and fired up, the best movements to help you reduce your stress symptoms are ones that are cooling, calming and nurturing.
  • Vinyasa yoga, running, boxing, crossfit or weight lifting 1-2 times per week
  • Restorative yoga or yoga nidra 1-2 times per week
  • Try chest opening and grounding poses at home: backbends, inversions, twists and neck / shoulder rolls
  • Walks in nature, in the evening when possible

Lifestyle Tips

The way we structure our day to day lives has a direct impact on our stress levels. Adding some of the following activities to your daily routine will help alleviate your Pitta stress symptoms:
  • Start your day with 3 deep breaths and splashing your face with cool water
  • Cooling breath exercises (exhale out of your mouth, inhale through your nose)
  • Aromatherapy: rose, sandalwood, mint
  • Journal. Try writing about the things you love about yourself or what you are grateful for
  • End your day with meditation (10 minutes). Focus on very deep belly breaths and relaxing facial, jaw, and neck tension
