the paradox is the healing. One of the paradoxes of Pitta in the
mind is to have compassion, to actually soften and try to see with
empathy all sides of the situation. For a lot of Pitta types this
can be the hardest work.” - Cate Stillman
in terms of digestion, this is one of the easiest ways to identify
if you have more Pitta. You’ll tend to have a stronger appetite,
you’ll tend to be able to eat more frequently than other people.

- “Because they’re such hyper-metabilzers if they
eat a high carb diet they’re body is going to burn through
everything really quickly. Having a substantial meal in the middle
of the day that’s higher in protein and higher in fat can really
help a Pitta person.” - Cate Stillman
- “Pitta’s have to learn how to turn off. Because
their mind is so strong they have a desire to go and go and go.
Developing a strong discipline to not working after the sun goes
down can be a phenomenal lifestyle change for Pitta; to actually
unplug. The time between 6:00pm and 10:00pm, that’s the time of
Kapha. That’s the time of earthy watery energy. It’s the time of
connecting and being with our people and relaxing, enjoying,
reflecting on the day. A Pitta type with a Pitta imbalance will
tend to burn the candle at both ends and keep working after dinner,
checking email, multitasking, getting everything done before going
to bed, and that leads to a Pitta imbalance. They’re violating the
rhythm of rejuvenation.” - Cate Stillman
