Collection: Kapha Dosha


This life force controls muscle growth, body strength and stability, weight, and your immune system.

You can disrupt it by sleeping during the day, eating too many sweet foods, and eating or drinking things that contain too much salt or water.

If it’s your main life energy, practitioners believe you may develop asthma and other breathing disorders, cancer, diabetes, nausea after eating, and obesity.

 

When Kapha is out of balance, too much Earth has
accumulated in mind, body, and environment. The result is

a sense of sluggishness, congestion, and dullness. The best

way to balance excess Kapha is to bring more movement and

circulation into the physiology.
