Kapha: The Dosha of Love
Kapha is the principal of structure and density. It is responsible for lubrication of joints, tissues and cells. Kapha is also the dosha of devotion, beauty, endurance, and peace.
A Kapha-dominant person is grounded, open, friendly, stable, and laid-back.
They are full of love, loyal, and dependable. The kapha frame is a soft one, with thick fingers and hands, large eyes, and a wide face. When kapha is out of balance a person may become depressed, put on weight, have respiratory ailments, and be prone to self-pity.
Sometimes a kapha person needs a to hear a whip cracked to get out of their sluggishness, and Ayurveda can crack the whip! Invigorating Ayurvedic treatments clear toxins from the body, stimulating recipes address cravings for fatty foods, and consultations may be done at a brisk pace—literally—as we go for an energizing walk!
