According to Ayurveda, it is ‘pitta’ or the body heat that allows body metabolism to work normally. When ‘pitta dosh’ occurs, the body heat becomes very high. This increase in body heat is sudden and undesirable, and results in disruption of normal metabolism and chemical imbalance in the body. It is accompanied by symptoms such as, acne, heartburn, skin rashes and diarrhoea, thus, it is often recommended to reduce body heat with ayurveda.
There is no single way to reduce body heat with Ayurveda, which is actually a vast assortment of remedies. It is better to consult an Ayurvedic physician to get advice on the best course of treatment.
