Lifestyle Suggestions

Individuals of dominant Kapha Dosha have slower metabolism. Pitta governs metabolic activities in the body. An exaggerated Pitta imbalance affects the body’s metabolism. The liver plays an important role in metabolizing most substances into a form to be distributed to the rest of the body. A clean, healthy liver helps the metabolic activities in everyone, particularly of both Pitta and Kapha people.

Kaphas should start a regimented exercise program and minimize oily, sweet, heavy foods.When out of balance a Pitta’s metabolism is overtaxed. Hence moderation of Pitta aggravating foods such as oily, fried, spicy foods and alcohol is suggested.
