A pitta headache typically starts in the temples and spreads to the central part of your head. They are known for their shooting, burning, piercing pain with a dash of nausea and often made worse by bright light, heat or by eating sour or spicy foods. Migraines are associated with this category. Pitta headaches are often linked to imbalances in the stomach and intestines, such as acid indigestion, hyperacidity or heartburn.
What to Do:
Pitta is associated with the element of fire. Our goal when remedying a pitta headache is to cool acidity (fire) in the body. We do this most effectively by avoiding spicy, salty, fried foods and adding more cooling foods such as cucumbers, watermelon, cilantro or dates to our daily diet. Massaging warm coconut oil onto the scalp and soles of the feet is a very soothing remedy for acute pitta headaches. For migraines it is recommended to put a few drops of ghee into each nostril before bed. Don't forget to take a deep breath, get some rest and slow your roll a little bit too fire child! .
