Tikshna Agni – The Third Fiery Flame

Tikshna Agni – As mentioned earlier in our previous blog posts, we are discussing the four different types of digestive fire or agni, as you know, you have particular qualities from which we can now primarily ascertain which Dosha is principally predominant to your digestion

Because of our doshic constitution, it is guaranteed that at some point we will all be prone and susceptible to a variety of specific imbalances within the digestive system.

Accordingly, within the science of Ayurveda, the physical and mental characteristics of an imbalanced agni can be classified and defined as such

By definition tikshna agni simply means there is an excess quantity of sharp Pitta within the digestive fire or agni, often causing constant feelings of hunger and excessive amounts of digestive acidity. People who have predominantly tikshna agni have sharp and intense digestive fires, as is often the case with predominantly Pitta types.

They generally seem to have a rampant appetite and can become very angry wherever they miss a meal.

Often they can get away with eating whatever they want, which in turn causes them to consume the incorrect types of food which can lead to heartburn and excessive hyperacidity. This leaves their digestive fires too hot and causes food to move straight through their digestive systems, which ultimately results in loose stools.

In terms of mentality, those who have tikshna agni are prone to experience Pitta like side effects, which include anger, irritability, a lack of patience and resentment. They are generally
steadfast perfectionists and may have a tendency to become obsessive.

Other Pitta like side effects which are experienced can include hot flashes, inflammation and nausea. It is of the utmost importance that tikshna agni people cool down their razor-sharp digestive fires and try to move towards and ultimately reach or attain a state of sama agni.
