How do you know when Kapha is imbalanced?
Excess weight, difficulty rising in the morning, mucous, emotional overeating, and sluggish bowel movements are the top symptoms for Kapha imbalance.
In the mind of a Kapha, imbalance can also manifest as low moods, lethargy, and a general feeling of feeling "stuck". As the Kapha continues to get out of hand, signs will appear in other places as well. The respiratory system is particularly susceptible to excess Kapha, causing an accumulation of mucus, colds, and congestion. Weight gain is the most common symptom of imbalance.
