Parts One, Two, Three and Four, saw us discuss the main principles of Ayurveda, and we took a brief look at the concept of Dosha, and the Doshas called Vata and Pitta.
This post is going to focus on the Dosha called Kapha – My primary Dosha.
If you took the test that was linked in Part Two, you will be able to tell what your primary Dosha is.
If your primary Dosha is Kapha then you will usually have some of the following qualities:
- Large eyes, and thick hair
- Lovers of routine
- Regular digestion
- Calm, loving and loyal
You will be patient, and someone that people can rely on.
Sometimes our Doshas will become unbalanced, for many reasons including life changes, or stress for example.
Signs of an imbalance in Kapha would be :
- Inability to move on from people, and situations
- Weight gain and fluid retention
To help keep your Kapha in balance, you could try a few of the following things:
- Maintaining routines, like waking up before 6am
- Regular exercise
- Keeping clutter in your home and life to a minimum.
- Wear bright colours
- Drink Ginger Tea
- Reduce the intake of Dairy
*Please don’t just take my word for it, I am not a doctor or a nutritionist, don’t change your lifestyle drastically without professional help.
