Ayurveda attempts to explain balance in the human condition by three mind/body types. We carry all three, but one tends to be dominant, and when out of balance, problematic. For Kapha types, who are normally strong and sturdy, reliable, stable, loyal and harmonious, being out of balance leads to weight gain, sluggishness, or depression. Physical ailments can include upper respiratory issues.In simple terms, when out of balance, Kapha is sluggish and needs to be stimulated.
