Your constitution type is Kapha

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.

Lifestyle
That new new. Breaking out of routine with new experiences is also ideal for Kapha types. Try a new game, go see a new part of the world, learn a new skill or hobby. Build that inner fire. Waking up early is best and avoid naps during the day.
Exercise
When exercising, work with forms of movement that are energizing and fast paced like heated yoga, kickboxing, and running.
Diet
  • Avoid heavy, oily, and too many sweet and salty foods
  • Steamed vegetable, soup, beans, raw foods and salads are great meal options
  • Add warming spices to food (garlic, onion, cinnamon, cayenne, ginger)
  • Eat your heaviest meal in the middle of the day
  • Room temperature water, not iced or boiling hot
