Earth & Water

Kapha is the energy that forms the body’s structure — bones, muscles, tendons — and provides the “glue” that holds the cells together, formed from Earth and Water. Kapha supplies the water for all bodily parts and systems. It lubricates joints, moisturizes the skin, and maintains immunity.

Kapha Dosha People are the calmest of the 3, ‘grounded’, and relatively ‘slow moving’. They are tranquil, placid, laid-back, and not easy to irritate. They prefer traditional convention and structure, and the security and sense of organisation they provide. They are prone to depression, lethargy, excessive sleeping, and can suffer from a sluggish digestion and respiratory trouble.

When you are out of balance:

You can suffer from a slower metabolism, which in turn causes weight gain, fluid retention, joint pain and sinus and respiratory issues. You will become resistant to change, and can be over-sensitive. Fatigue, low energy and lack of motivation are all further signs of imbalance and it is good to be careful of these issues in the colder, winter months.

When you are feeling balanced:

You are the most present and mindful of all the doshas. You are calm, reflective, compassionate, spiritual, and nourishing, giving and protective towards others.

How to rebalance:

    -   Get plenty of exercise
    -   Avoid heavy foods
    -   Keep active
    -   Avoid dairy
    -   Avoid iced food or drinks
    -   Vary your routine
    -   Avoid fatty, oily foods
    -   Eat light, dry food
    -   No daytime naps
