Your constitution is Vata-Pitta, governing both flow & transformation. Your personality type is The Alchemist with qualities from both the Vata (the creative) and Pitta (the leader).

 

Generally, with this bi-dosha, Vata characteristics will dominate the physical attributes (thin boned) and Pitta (quick and easily hot-tempered) for emotional attributes.  Vata-Pitta can come across as "back and forth" with extremes varying from Pitta’s anger to Vata’s fear (think of the song “Hot N’ Cold” by Katy Perry).

 

A healthy person with a Vata-Pitta predominant constitution is fun, loving, passionate and full of ideas. They are jet-setters with a purpose. They have the ability to be keenly insightful while also holding the big picture in view. They are go-getters driven by intensity. 

 

Vata-Pitta's imbalance can be seen in the form of anxiousness, lack of sleep, and inflammation in the skin (e.g. redness).

 

Tips and tricks for when imbalanced:

 

1.  Lifestyle: 

Rest is the number one medicine for calming Vata-Pitta.  We recommend sleeping at regular hours of the day with at least 7-8 hours of sleep.  Regularity is the name of the game; keep to a consistent schedule to stay grounded.

 

2.  Exercise: 

If exercising, create balance with non-competitive activities like yoga, hiking, and swimming.  Meditation is key, so remember to get your Zen on.

3.  Diet: 

  • Smooth, moist, sweet and warm foods will soothe Vata-Pitta.
  • Avoid too much raw, dry, spicy foods (e.g. bread) and too much alcohol and caffeine
  • Grains (like oats and rice), soups,sweet fruits (like figs, coconuts, apricots) ghee and cooked vegetables are great meal options
  • Room temperature water, not iced or boiling hot
