Kapha Diet

Kapha dominant people tend to have a slower metabolism, which benefits greatly from a diet of light and relatively dry foods. In order to balance Kapha's sluggish qualities, avoid snacking or eating when you are not hungry when possible and instead opt for well-balanced meals. Light lentil soup is a great addition to this diet. Drinking water from a Copper Water Bottle is extremely beneficial for this dosha type, as copper-infused water supports healthy digestion and immunity.

Kapha Herbal Remedies

Try a cup of "CCF" tea (cumin, coriander, and fennel) before bedtime or a glass of warm milk with half a teaspoon of turmeric and a bit of black pepper (turmeric powder is a powerful digestive healer and all-natural remedy for bloating, stomach discomfort, and other digestive issues.)

Understanding Your Dosha

The Vital Energies of Ayurveda

In order to be well in the practice of Ayurveda, we focus on balancing mind, body, and soul. Central to this philosophy are the three metabolic types or “doshas,” known as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. These doshas represent the fundamental energies that govern our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. A proper balance among dosha types is essential for creating harmony in these categories of wellbeing, as imbalances can lead to illness and disease. Each person has a unique ratio of all three dosha types and understanding your primary dosha will allow you to adapt the products, practices, and lifestyle choices in your daily routine to achieve holistic balance inside and out.

While all three doshas are present in every individual human, it is the ratio of each energy that determines your unique dosha type. If you are a hybrid type, two doshas are prominent in your constitution. These ratios can vary through life due to age, environment, and lifestyle. We encourage you to return to this quiz seasonally and adapt your daily habits and routines as needed to achieve optimal holistic wellness.

In Ayurveda, each of the four seasons (winter, spring, summer, fall) is associated with a corresponding dosha type. As the seasons change in your external environment, the dosha type associated with that season will naturally increase in your internal environment ie. your dosha constitution. Kapha is associated with Winter/Spring due to their shared cold, damp, and heavy qualities. Because this is your primary dosha type, take extra care to incorporate Kapha-pacifying practices in your routine this time of year!
