Introduction to Pitta Dosa in Ayurveda

  1. 1. What is Dosa…? • These are those physiological entities which are responsible for maintaining normal physiological state of the body. • But if they are disturbed, they are responsible for diseases and we fall sick….!!!
  2. 2. Role of dosas in the pathogenesis of exogenous and endogenous diseases • The exogenous diseases begin with pain and then they bring about the disturbance in the equilibrium of dosas. • The endogenous diseases on the other hand begin with the disturbance in the equilibrium of dosas and then bring about pain.
  3. 3. Physiological sites of dosas in the body : The important sites of location of these three dosas are as below: Urinary bladder, rectum, waist, thighs, legs, bones and colon are the sites of vata: amongst them colon is the most important site. Sweat, rasa lasika (lymph), rakta and small intestine (lower part of amasaya) are the sites of pitta; amongst them, small intestine (lower part of amasaya is the most important site). Chest, head, neck, joint, stomach (upper part of amasaya) and fat are the sites of slesma; amongst them chest is the most important site.
  4. 4. • Pitta Dosa is one among three physical Dosas- Vata, Pitta & Kapha. • Constituted by Agni Mahabhuta among five Panchamahabhutas- Ākāsh, Vāyu, Agni, Jal, Prithvi. =Pitta
  5. 5. Concept of ‘Pitta’ • ‘Pitta’ includes all those factors responsible for digestion and metabolism. • For all practical purposes, ‘Agni’ & ‘Pitta’ are to be considered as identical entities.
  6. 6. Qualities of Pitta • According to Vagbhatta- • Sasneha – slightly oily, unctuous, • Teekshna – piercing, entering into deep tissues • Ushna –hotness • Laghu – lightness • Visram – bad smell • Sara – Having fluidity • Movement • Drava –liquidity are the qualities of Pitta. • Vagbhatta mentioned two extra qualities i.e. light and foul smell.
  7. 7. • According to Acharya Charak, pitta is unctous with the qualities like oily and greasy ,hot ,acidic and liquid in nature and sharp in action i.e. highly penetrative. Pitta is having sour and pungent taste ,it spreads quickly like an oil drop on the surface of water.
  8. 8. • The colour of the Pitta is peeta (yellow), neela (blue) and some times hareeta (green). Five Anjali Pitta is present in the body (Anjali- by joining two palms hallow space will be formed any thing full of this cavity either liquid or solid is called as one Anjali).
  9. 9. • According to Acharya Sushruta- • Pitta is irritant, liquid, foetid, blue or yellow, hot, pungent or sour when abnormally burnt.
  10. 10. • Now innate characters of pitta are mentioned which are useful in treatment. • Tiksnam-irritant like rajika, marica etc. • Colour is blue when associated with ama otherwise yellow. • The taste of normal pitta is pungent but during abnormal digestion it becomes sour.
  11. 11. • Some read as ‘vidagdhajirnasamsrstamamlarasam bhavati’, others, however, take ‘vidagdhapitta’ as specific syndrome known as ‘amlapitta’ (acid gastritis); Some read ‘sara’ in place of ‘drava’.
  12. 12. • According to Sharangdhara, pitta have hotness, liquidity, yellowish blue colouration .Person having dominance of pitta in their body, have Satva guna. • It has wide meaning i.e.those person will be wise, pious ,devoted, brave, good memory, full of patience and interested in their work.
  13. 13. • The colour of pitta is peeta (yellow), neela (blue) and sometimes hareeta(green). Five anjali pitta is present in the body. • (Anjali-by joining two palms hollow space will be formed any thing full of this cavity either liquid or solid is called as one Anjali)
  14. 14. Location of pitta Nabhi (umbilicus),amasaya (stomach and small intestine), sweat, lasika (lymph), blood, rasa (plasma) Eyes and the organ of touch(skin), are the seats of pitta. Especially the nabhi (region around the umbilicus)
  15. 15. Types of Pitta There are five types of Pitta- 1. ‘P caka Pitta’ā 2. ‘Rañjaka Pitta’ 3. ‘Bhr jaka Pitta’ā 4. ‘S dhaka Pitta’ā 5. ‘Alocaka Pitta’
  16. 16. Pācaka Pitta • ‘Pācaka Pitta’ is equivalent to ‘Jatharāgni’ . • As its functions suggest, all enzymes responsible for digestion along with all gastrointestinal hormones and all local hormones of G.I.T. are to be included in it.
  17. 17. • This Panchabhoutika (physical) body is the out come of the food. • The health of a person not only depends upon contents of the food. But it depends upon proper digestion and assimilation of the food. • The digestion of the food is the main function of the Pachaka pitta, along with this it controlls all other Pitta’s functions.
  18. 18. • The Pachakpitta is located in between Amashaya and Pakvashaya ie Pacchamanashaya. • This is also called as Grahini where the cooking process takes place predominantly. • In Grahini (duodenum) only Pittadharakala is situated. Like universal matter this Pachakapitta is also made up of Panchamahabhuta.
  19. 19. • Even though it is of Tejoguna predominant, but in liquid form, not posessing the qualities of liquid like Snighadha, Sita etc and digest the food so called by the name “ANAL”. • It digests the food and also separate Sarabhaga rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, sugar etc.
  20. 20. • Being seated in Grahini itself gives strength to Grahini as well as all other sub-divisions of Pittas and Dhatwagni’s which are present in Saphtadhatus, This Pitta is called by the name Pachaka.
  21. 21. Synonyms of Pachakapitta- • Pachaka Agni- Agni meant for the digestion of food. • Kosthagni- Agni, which is present in Kostha. • Antharagni-Agni, which is present in Anthra.
  22. 22. • Kayagni-Agni, which is present in Kaya. • Jatharagni- Agni, which is present in Jathara. • Audartaijas; The Tejas, which is present in the Udara. Some time the only word “Agni” indicates the Pachakapitta.
  23. 23. • That pitta which resides in between the amasaya and pakvasaya is known as pacaka. • It is composed of all the five mahabhutas, yet it has the predominance of qualities of tejas (fire) and deficiency of qualities of apbhuta. • Hence it is devoid of liquid-qualities.In association with factors like vata, moisture (water) etc, it performs fire like function for digestion, hence known as agni also.
  24. 24. • It digest the food, separates the nutritive and waste fractions from food. Pacaka pitta by remaining at its own place supports and sustains other divisions of pitta located at different places in the body.
  25. 25. ‘Rañjaka Pitta’ • It is responsible for synthesis of ‘Rakta’. It is situated in stomach (‘Amāśaya’) according to Vāgbhata and the sites are liver and spleen according to Suśruta. • Gastric intrinsic factor is the best candidate to represent Vāgbhata’ s view, as it is required for the absorption of Vitamin B12, which in turn is needed for DNA synthesis of RBC precursors in bone marrow.
  26. 26. Location • The Ranjaka pitta is located in the amashaya.
  27. 27. • According to Susrata, Yakrit and Pleeha are the places of ranjaka pitta. The function of this ranjaka pitta is to impart red colour to the watery coloured rasa dhatu and convert it into red coloured rakta dhatu.
  28. 28. • According to ayurvedic scripit watery colour rasa dhatu converts into red coloured rakta dhatu in presence of ranjaka pitta. • sushruta explained that some principle present in the liver and spleen for the imparting colour to the rasa. He advised the administration of goat’s raw liver in the treatment of rakta pitta (haemorrhagic disorders).
  29. 29. • Vagbhata’s opinion is that stomach is the seat of ranjaka pitta can be co-related with the modern science haemopoietic principles. • Gastric juice secreted by stomach consists intrinsic factor it is heat liable mucoprotein. • Intrinsic factor is essential for the absorption of vitamin-B12 which deficiency causes pernicious anaemia. • This vit-B12 is also called as extrinsic factor
  30. 30. • After its secretion, intrinsic factor stored in the liver, then passes to bone marrow and helps in the maturation of RBC. • Intrensic factor is an enzyme like substance secreted by stomach and present in gastric juice as well as in the gastric mucus membrane. • The extrensic factor (vit-B12) is consumed along with food. The intriesic factor interacts with extrensic factor of the food and helps in its absorption.
  31. 31. ‘Bhrājaka Pitta’: • As is known, pigmentation of skin is under the control of some hormones like ACTH & MSH from anterior pituitary. • Some enzymes in the skin responsible for the metabolism of certain drugs applied topically also can be considered under ‘Bhrājaka Pitta’ along with the hormones controlling pigmentation.

  34. 34. • This classification is made on the basis of Mahabhuta predominancy. • Those are Akasheeya, Vayuveeya, Taijasa, Jaleeya and Parthiva Chaya, Chaya occupies the colour and the colour will be enlightened by Prabha.
  35. 35. • Skin Colour – Bhrajakapitta is responsible for the colour of the skin. The skin colour will determine the body colour. • The normal colour of the skin is of four types: Krishana (black), Shayama (blackish), Avadata (pale red), Shyama-avadata (a mixture of dark and pale red). This Avadata colour is called as Gouravavarna.
  36. 36. • According to modern science, five pigments influence the skin colour. Those are – • 1. Melanine • 2. Melanoid • 3. Carotene • 4. Oxyhaemoglobin • 5. Reduced haemoglobin
  37. 37. • Melanine – A yellow to black pigment present in the epidermis. • Sunrays increased the synthesis of melanine i.e. in hot area dwelling persons are black. • Melanine protect the skin against the effect of ultraviolent rays of sun. • Melanoid – A pigment related to melanine.
  38. 38. • Carotene – A yellow orange pigment found in lipid rich areas. • This add the strong yellow component to the skin in females the concentration of carotene is more than the males. • Oxyhaemoglobin- This impart red colour to the skin, especially a rich arterial supplied area, ex-face, neck, palm, sole and nipples etc.
  39. 39. • Reduced Haemoglobin- It imparts bluish colour to the skin. • The distribution pattern and concentration of these five pigments will determine the nature of colour of skin. • The thickness of the skin can also modify skin colour.
  40. 40. • Thin epidermis is more transparent than thick. This epidermis will allow the pigments to express their colour characters more readily. • The light scattering and reflex qualities of the skin can also act as a factor modifying skin colour. • The melanine is the most important of the five in determination of skin colours.
  41. 41. Absorption Functions of Skin • Whatever is administered on the skin in the form of Abhyanga (oil massage), Avaghah (immersion oily bath), Pralepa (thin layer of application) etc are get digested by the Bhrajaka pitta and absorbed by the skin layer.
  42. 42. • Absorption may not necessarily mean passage into the blood stream. But penetrate into the cells of various layers of the skin and produces local effect.
  43. 43. • Temperature Regulations- Due to basal metabolism, muscular activities and assimilation of the food some heat is produced in body. • These process are under the control of pitta.
  44. 44. • The secretion of sweat is one of the important methods of heat loss. • The degree of sweat secretion depends upon the body and environment temperature. • The Bhrajakapitta may regulate the body temperature by its action on the sweat glands and cutaneous vessels.
  45. 45. ‘Sādhaka Pitta’ • All functions ascribed to this ‘Pitta’are of cerebrum, limbic system, hypothalamus and other CNS structures. • For motivation and other psychosocial behaviors Norepinephrine is a very essential neurotransmitter in the brain.
  46. 46. • Incidentally, it also acts on heart as a cardiac stimulant. During emergency situations it is released from adrenal medulla and it helps for “fight or flight phenomenon”.
  47. 47. Location The Sadhaka pitta is located in the Hridaya.

  52. 52. Alocaka Pitta’ • ‘This is said to be responsible for normal vision. Photosensitive chemicals in the eye, called Photo-pigments and the whole process involved in photochemistry of vision can be represented by ‘Alocaka pitta’. • Also, neurotransmitters involved in the visual pathway can be included under this.
  53. 53. • Alochaka pitta is present in the eye (retina) It catchs the image of external object and helps in recollection about that image. The recollection is the funtion of Mastiska and Ropagrahan is the function of Netra.
