    Hi Loveleen001,

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1]Factors that can cause Pitta dosha to increase in the physiology include a diet that contains too many hot or spicy foods, fasting or skipping meals, over-exposure to the sun or to hot temperatures, and emotional trauma.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1]Following a Pitta-balancing diet and lifestyle can help restore balance to Pitta.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1] Here are some specific dietary tips:

    [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1] 1. If you need to balance Pitta, choose ghee, in moderate quantities, as your cooking medium. Ghee, according to the ancient ayurvedic texts, is cooling for both mind and body.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1]2. Cooling foods are wonderful for balancing Pitta dosha. Sweet juicy fruits, especially pears, can cool a fiery Pitta quickly. Milk, sweet rice pudding, coconut and coconut juice, and milkshakes made with ripe mangoes and almonds or dates are examples of soothing Pitta-pacifying foods.

    [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1]3. The three ayurvedic tastes that help balance Pitta are sweet, bitter and astringent, so include more of these tastes in your daily diet. Milk, fully ripe sweet fruits, and soaked and blanched almonds make good snack choices. Eat less of the salty, pungent and sour tastes.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1] 4. Dry cereal, crackers, granola and cereal bars, and rice cakes balance the liquid nature of Pitta dosha, and can be eaten any time hunger pangs strike during the day.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1]5. Carrots, asparagus, bitter leafy greens, fennel, cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussel's sprout green beans and bitter gourd are good vegetable choices. They become more digestible when chopped and cooked with Pitta-pacifying spices. Vegetables can be combined with grains or mung beans for satisfying one-dish meals. Avoid nightshades.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1] 6. Basmati rice is excellent for balancing Pitta. Wheat is also good--fresh flatbreads made with whole-wheat flour (called atta or chapatti flour and available at Indian grocery stores) combine well with cooked vegetables or Pitta-balancing chutneys. Oats and amaranth are other Pitta-balancing grains.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1] 7. Choose spices that are not too heating or pungent. Ayurvedic spices such as small quantities of turmeric, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cardamom and fennel offer flavor, aroma and healing wisdom[/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1] 8.Drink sweet lassi with lunch to help enhance digestion and cool, not ice-cold, water to quench thirst.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    Hope your problem is solved now...
