Kapha is a cool, damp type of energetic: cold, wet, heavy, and stable. Kapha rules all of the structures in the body: bones and muscles. Kapha is consistent, stable, traditional, devotional, nurturing, supportive, and reliable. Kapha is very happy to do almost anything—as long as someone who is near and dear will do it, too.
People who are predominately Kapha types tend towards a fuller body type, large round features, a fantastic head of hair, large eyes, and very few, if any, wrinkles.
Kaphas love to indulge in rich, thick, creamy foods. The richer the better! Comfort foods are where it’s at.
Kapha types run too wet, ie: congested and mucousy. They easily become overweight and can succumb to lethargy.
To restore balance to Kapha, we heat Kapha up, we dry her out, and we get her moving! Go dancing, and eat smaller portions.
