In Ayurveda, Pitta dosha is associated with fire, fueling our metabolism, digestion, and overall energy levels. While this fiery nature brings forth vitality and enthusiasm, an imbalance in Pitta can lead to irritability, restless nights, and difficulty unwinding after a long day.

For Pitta individuals, an aggravated Pitta dosha can manifest as racing thoughts, heightened body temperature, and emotional intensity, making it challenging to transition into a state of relaxation conducive to a restful night's sleep. This imbalance can disrupt sleep patterns, leaving you feeling fatigued and drained the next day.

Why Did My Sleep Change With Summer's Arrival?

You got through another winter, all excited for spring and summer and before you know it, something has gone awry with your sleep. What happened? For many people, the increase in social activities ends up being too much creating imbalances in potentially both Vata and Pitta. Graduation parties, weddings, summer get togethers, kids moving to college--it's all fun, but too much for you, and it gets intense (Pitta)!

Now add to that more Pitta in the form of increased in temperature and in many places this year, summer temps showed up in spring! What else? The angle of sun is stronger and more direct.

What else is brewing? The sun stays up later and so do you! Staying up later, you enter into the second cycle of Pitta. Ever feel that clarity and increased energy around 10:00pm? People call it a second wind, but actually it's a second fire of activity--and it's pretty hard to fall asleep when you're revved up.

That's Pitta, plus Pitta, plus Pitta, and that equals a whole lot of Pitta. Balancing Pitta becomes key to you having a good night's sleep and to ensure Pitta does not spread like a wildfire.

Black board with success stories

“Veena has literally changed my life. I was struggling with mental and physical symptoms that my doctor had no answer for. I thought I was going crazy and just making symptoms up.


With Veena’s guidance, with herbs and diet changes, I soon realized that my symptoms were very real. After making the changes, I made small victories along the way, and became better with each appointment with her.


Now almost 6 months later, I am a completely different person. I still have some things to work on, but with Veena’s help, I know I will be able to take control of my health and not leave it to Western medicine that was giving me little to no help and covering up my symptoms with another medication.


I highly encourage getting the longer package, especially if you are working with challenges with your monthly cycle. Working with Veen has been the best decision I have made for my health. You won’t be disappointed!” 

-- Maria Fumagalli, San Diego, California

“Veena has helped me so much! I had been struggling with fatigue for many years. I tried many things, read lots of books, advice, etc. Nothing worked, or very slight positive change over the years, but I was still struggling with the everyday. Then a couple months with Veena, I was stunned at how ayurveda and her customized approach worked! Not only did the fatigue go away, but I actually have renewed energy and feel so physically and mentally energetic! I am so grateful. I feel like I got living my life back.”
