In Ayurveda, Kapha Dosha represents the physical elements of the body that give the body its mass, structure and substance. Usually, in each person, out of the three primary Doshas(Vata, Pitta and Kapha), one predominates.
The people of the Kapha Dosha Type (Kaphas) are earthy beings who are also grounded, softand smooth as honey. Their gifts include patience, diplomacy and a kind, generous spirit that is comforting to the ones they love.
Steady and sweet, Kaphas are great listeners and can offer a soft-place to land when the going gets tough. If the earth within them moves out of balance, however, they can experience feeling “stuck”, melancholic, hold grudges and be immovably stubborn.
So how can you tell if you have a Pitta imbalance?
