Kapha Season: Combating Seasonal Depression and Weight Gain

Kapha Season: Combating Seasonal Depression and Weight Gain

According to Ayurveda, the 5,000 year-old system of mind, body, and spirit holistic health, if you’re anywhere in the world where winter is transitioning into spring, it’s Kapha season. The earth is damp and it’s no coincidence that the elements associated with Kapha are water and earth.

While every living thing, whether plant, animal or human, is comprised of all five elements–ether, air, fire, water and earth–there is usually a predominance of one or two elements in each individual’s constitution. Ayurveda refers to this as your dosha, or biological humor. Today I’m focusing on the Kapha dosha so that we can strive to stay in balance during Kapha season. Kapha dosha is slow, steady, heavy, oily, cold and soft. It is responsible for structure (earth) and lubrication (water) in the body. A healthy immune system depends on Kapha.
