Pitta types are determined and strong willed with good digestion.
The Pitta's primary organs are the small intestine and stomach.
Pittas tend to be hot, oily, and light.

Pitta is associated with the fire element, and tend to have a fiery quality.

When a Pitta becomes imbalanced, he or she may notice skin rashes, burning, inflammation, fever, ulcers, anger, jealousy, copious urine.

In order to be balanced, Pittas should remain cool, avoiding excess heat, steam or humidity. They should also avoid excessively oily food or fried foods as well as caffeine, alcohol, red meat, hot spices, or salt, choosing instead to eat fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains.

Pitta types should also try to get plenty of fresh air. Expression of emotions is also important.
