Ayurveda teaches that three basic energies, the tridoshas (Kapha, Vata and Pitta) exist in everything in the universe and influence all mental and physical processes. We are all born with a particular balance of these doshas, but often our predominant dosha overpowers us and we feel stress. The Kapha, Vata and Pitta products you'll find in our range are formulated to restore balance to the mind and body. To find out more about Ayurvedic medicine, click here.
Kapha people tend to have the most stable and grounded natures of the three dosha types. When balanced, they are as solid and centered as a mountain, consistent, calm, patient and thorough. Good listeners and caregivers, balanced Kaphas are loving, peaceful, compassionate and supportive. If out of balance, Kapha people may become controlling, greedy and materialistic. When completely out of balance they become lethargic and lazy. Although Kapha people are slow to anger, their explosive rage is uncontainable when finally provoked.
Kapha types gain weight easily and are usually well-nourished and healthy. Once they learn something, they seldom forget it. Their friendly, open dispositions make them excellent managers, but their stable natures can lead to mental and emotional dullness.
