The Pitta type of person has the strongest digestive capacity- they can handle large quantities and a wide variety of foods.
A Pitta person’s digestion is disturbed by too much spicy or acidic food. The Pitta type is the most sensitive to sour (fermented) and acidic foods that increase Pitta the body. They may be attracted to hot spices, but these kinds of foods tend to increase the bile production in the liver and pancreas which increases the acidic nature of both blood and plasma. Human cells are very sensitive to the pH level of the body and high Pitta, or acidity, ages cells or breaks down their normal metabolic function.
To balance out hot, oily, sharp, light, spreading and liquid qualities, Pitta types will benefit from including cool, dry, heavy, dense qualities in their meals. Pitta has a strong metabolism and can’t ignore hunger or skip meals.
