Kapha’s qualities are damp, cold, soft, sticky, jelly-like, heavy, blocking and stable. These qualities naturally accumulate over the winter but are readily felt during the Spring. As the weather warms kapha begins to flow and move from its solid-state.
The fluid state of kapha creates respiratory congestion with a damp mucus-like fluid. As the warm weather of Spring takes hold many people will experience sinus congestion, coughing, watery eyes, allergies, and headache. This is a common yet seasonally natural symptom of excess kapha moving out of the body.

The end of the year marks the time when many families celebrate their most important holiday. And it’s also the time when stress is at its highest level and we tend to neglect our healthy daily routine. The combined stress along with heavier holiday meals and the cold wet kapha season sets the stage for kapha to increase and reduce our energy and immunity.
