Supporting Healthy Kapha Dosha

Kapha dosha represents the earth and water elements. Its main qualities are cooling, moist, heavy, and soft, and is compared to similar energy as the moon. Kapha dosha governs the structure and stability of our bodies. People who are kapha dominant are naturally slower and easier going than the other two doshas. This serves kapha people well, because they are also the strongest and have good stamina and immunity as long as they do not overindulge in food and inactivity.

Kapha people naturally have thick, soft hair, large, bright eyes and radiant skin. Their body structure has a larger and stronger frame. When in balance, they are sweet natured and a pleasure to be around.

When kapha people are out of balance, they are prone to certain conditions like weight gain, fluid retention, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, fatigue and laziness.

Ayurveda, the traditional system of medicine from India, recognizes pain as a symptom of an underlying imbalance in the body's doshas.
