The Kapha Woman: Water + Earth
The Kapha dosha is made up the elements of water and earth. Like these elements, Kapha tends to be cool, moist, stable and heavy.
These qualities manifest in the body as dense and heavy bones, lustrous, supple skin, a low metabolism, cool temperature and a strong, solid frame. When out of balance, the Kapha woman may be prone to weight gain, experience weakness in the lungs and be affected by sinus issues.
The elements of water and earth are deeply reflected in the stable personality of the Kapha woman who is not prone to quick fluctuations. A Kapha woman handles stress well, dislikes change and is generally conservative. She would prefer to keep things just the way they are. The soft, watery nature of a Kapha woman will seek comfort, however too much can lead to a lack of motivation and feeling of being stuck. When Kapha is out of balance, she may feel lethargic and heavy.
In order to bring balance to Kapha, she must infuse the opposing qualities of lightness, dryness and warmth into her daily life. Grains such as quinoa and amaranth as well as hot spices like cayenne pepper will warm her body, skin and soul. Lots of vegetables and very little nuts or dairy are prescribed. Cleansing herbs like tulsi and pungent ones like clove also bring balance to the Kapha woman.
