    No dr suggests diet according to dosha in body.. we all know what is nutritious but if someone is suffering from pitta dosha then seeds, dryfruits, peanuts, citrus fruits etc doesn’t suit. So why no dr considers such things before mentioning any healthy food

      As you know very individual is different from one another , it is because of the prakriti or you can say it as body constitution , If the person is suffering from Pitta dosha, it doesn’t mean he has to avoid the above mentioned food but can take in moderation , eating too much of these food give acidity.
