Supporting Healthy Kapha Dosha

Supporting Healthy Kapha Dosha

By Vaidya Vishwanath August 31, 2022


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.

Hemant Ritucharya – Selfcare for Winter Season

by Kottakkal Support November 23, 2022

The main goal of Ayurveda is to maintain the health of a person who is already healthy and to correct any imbalance for those who are unhealthy. This can be achieved by following Dinacharya (personal daily self-care regimen) and Ritucharya (personal seasonal self-care regimen). Each person’s dinacharya and ritucharya is personalized based on their prakriti (constitution), vikriti (imbalanced doshas), bala (strength), and agni (digestive power). By following both dinacharya and ritucharya the natural movement of the doshas is brought into balance and the person can remain free from diseases.
