||Earth and Water
||Kapha is the binding or glue energy. Kapha keeps things together in the universe. It is a combination of Earth and Water and is therefore heavy, and provides strength and stability.
||Kapha individuals have a strong build and enjoy great stamina. They have soft, radiant skin, big eyes and a strong frame.
||Kapha people have quite a lovable nature and having them close to us can be a real pleasure. Nothing seems to get them out of balance, and they always seem patient and understanding. They are ideal managers, who calmly handle several issues simultaneously and can also answer other urgent questions while doing so. They retain what they have learned and can remember the minor details.
||Kapha people are quite regular and disciplined in their routines.
||Their ability to hold onto things, pounds, and people, coupled with water retention, makes life difficult for them in many respects, but financially, this leads them to wealth and possessions.
||The golden rule of eating for Kapha people are: “Eat less than you feel hungry for or are craving. Good foods are spicy or well-seasoned, dry, and antiedemic.”
||Apple, berries, cherries, mangos, peaches, pears, and raisins are recommended. Dried figs and plums are good, but other dried fruits should be avoided if possible. In general, you can eat fruit at least one hour before or after meals but not in the evenings.
||Spicy and bitter: red beets, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, eggplant, garlic, lettuce, mushrooms, onions, parsley, peas, radish, spinach, sprouts, fennel, and Brussels sprouts.
|Dairy & substitutes
||Reduced-fat milk in small quantities; avoid fatty cheeses and curd (quark). Soy milk is preferable in general.
||All legumes except for white beans and black lentils. Azuki and black beans are good.
||If a Kapha-dominated person is able to exercise regularly, to change profession or place of residence from time to time, and to eat less than is offered, his or her strength and perseverance will be impressive for a lifetime. It is good to avoid the “digestive nap” during the day and to look for exciting situations instead.
||Running as well as a workplace without (too much) sitting will keep the Kapha type fit. Deep massages with warm herbal oils are very useful stimulants, and an Ayurvedic detoxification (Panchakarma health retreat) is his/her fountain of youth. With these means, the Kapha person will not experience any stress, rather exhilaration.
