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.

January Ayurvedic Recipe: Lentil Soup with Vegetables

by Kottakkal Support January 01, 2019

A delicious soup like this is good for anytime of the year. It's high in fiber and vegan (unless you use ghee in place of the coconut oil!) which is also a great switch. Enjoy this warm, balancing dish with friends and family! It's the perfect one to share, so we made this recipe to serve 6 in time for the holidays.
