FIRE + WATER
Art by Teil Duncan
Pitta is made of fire + water elements. Fire + water makes molten lava. Anything that touches molten lava is forever transformed.
WHY WE LOVE PITTA
- Courage + daring
- Tactical + scheming ability
WHAT IS PITTA?
Pitta tissues are red blood cells, which carry oxygen to ignite the flame, and all the liquids in the body that have a metabolic role.
Pitta dictates your metabolism, the process of thinking and the integration of energy between layers of consciousness.
YOU GOT SOME HIGH PITTA?
That means you secrete high levels of metabolic enzymes and catalysts. Your cellular response is immediate. Your turnover of reactants is higher, so you need more fuel, more frequently. You synthesise more products, more heat and more waste. Yes Pitta, you can totally claim it, you are more productive. But you also have a higher demand on your organs of detoxification (liver, spleen + kidneys), making you more sensitive to toxins.
