1) Vata: When vata is aggravated, your system becomes irregular and depleted, which affects weak organs and tissues. Excessive consumption of bitter, astringent and spicy tastes contribute to vata imbalance. Vata governs anything related to movement, such as breathing, talking, nerve impulses, movements in the muscles and tissues, circulation, assimilation of food, elimination, urination, and menstruation.
2) Pitta: When pitta is unbalanced, you can become aggressive and irritable. Pitta imbalance may result from excessive alcohol or hot, spicy, oily, fried, salty, fermented foods. Pitta governs joy, courage, willpower, anger, jealousy, and mental perception.
3) Kapha: Kapha is unbalanced, there is a tendency for mental and physical stagnation. Excessive food consumption can contribute to kapha imbalance. Kapha governs love, patience, forgiveness, greed, attachment, and mental inertia.
