Kapha and Respiratory Health

 

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.

HERBAL STEAM INHALATION
HERBAL STEAM INHALATION

by Kottakkal Support May 24, 2020

Herbal steam inhalation is a great way to help open congested sinuses and bronchial airways caused by a cold, flu, or allergy. Herbal steams are also used before Nasya therapies to help open the nasal airway. 

The steam from the boiling water is often sufficient to help congestion; however, by adding herbs that help respiratory disorders, the effect is far more notable.
