Balancing Excess Kapha

Balancing Excess Kapha

by Kottakkal Support January 16, 2019

Ahh, Kapha. A Dosha that we all have, made up of earth and water. It gives us many of our best human qualities, such as our grounding, stability and warm emotions. When in excess however, it can have negative consequences on our overall health. 

To reduce or pacify kapha, Ayurveda has given us dietary, lifestyle and herbal treatment strategies. To reduce Kapha, emphasize stimulation, exercise, lightening, warming and drying in your diet and lifestyle.

It can feel overwhelming to begin learning Ayurvedic practices and routines.

"How can I make time to meditate if I'm so tired in the morning or after work?"

The most important thing when first bringing Ayurveda into your life is to take one step at a time. It takes from 14 to 21 days of consistency for a new practice to become a habit. Go slowly and introduce the new practices and habits into your life one-by-one.
