The terms Pitta, Kapha & Vata may sound more like the names of fraternities, but they are actually terms associated with Ayurvedic medicine. Pitta is the force of heat & energy (linked with the sun) that controls digestion & all biochemical processes within us. Kapha (the force of water & tides) is influenced by the power of the moon & is the stabilizing influence that controls the fluid metabolism with us. While, Vata (associated with the wind) is the force that controls movement & the functioning of the nervous system in the body.
