Low self esteem may not be a "disease" but it can certainly be crippling. It stifles creativity, self-expression and the joy of simply being oneself. The Ayurvedic system of analyzing people according to their constitutions is very helpful when it comes to answering this question. Our emotional health is affected by a sub-dosha of Pitta called Sadhaka Pitta. When it is out of balance we may be prone to mood swings, anger and irritability, we can be self-critical, intolerant, and easily hurt. We will look at delicious foods and wonderful herbs that balance Sadhaka Pitta, such as coconut milk, mung beans, rose tea, chamomile, aloe vera, vervain, arjuna and sandalwood.
