Body Systems controlled by the Pitta Dosha
Cardiac System: The heart is overactive with the Pitta people because you are high in emotions always and you take yourself responsible for many things. Secondly, you have aggression and anger which works to add to the problems.
Skin and hairs: Skin and hairs can tell quickly about your Dosha, Mr. Pitta! Grey hairs, baldness, moles and blackheads on skin, cupric tint of the body.
Blood-Related Systems: Hypertension is the most commonest thing with Pitta persons besides this high or too low volume of the blood and problems with the blood associated systems like spleen etc. are very common with Pitta Prakruti.
Digestive System: Pitta resides and controls the digestive system, so this is by default that there will be some problems with the digestive system.
Liver and Bile system: Production of bile and excretion of bile both are controlled by the Pitta alone, so this system is prone to the problems in case of Pitta dominance.
Psychological Disturbances: Emotions cause anger and anger brings many other problems, this is the baseline for the Pitta Prakriti.
