With the Earth Element (kapha) being high at this time, you are likely experiencing or suffering from any of the following:

  • Lethargy
  • Overeating, not at your ideal weight, or accumulating excess weight
  • Uncomfortable from poor digestion and difficult elimination
  • Water retention
  • Excessive sleep  
  • Dull and depressed
  • Unmotivated and uninspired
  • Feeling greedy, entangled, possessive

According to Ayurveda, the human body is made up of the Pancha Mahabhutas or the Five Great elements – Air, Water, Earth, Fire and Space. Doshas are the three combinations of these elements. Vata (Air and Space), Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Earth and Water) are the three bio-elements in the body. Each individual has a particular constitution and a balance of these three in the body. Any imbalance in them over a prolonged period of time is the root cause of lower immunity and potentially even more serious ailments or issues in our health, emotions and mind.

Recommended herbal supplements

Kapha represents water and earth and is responsible for maintaining the structure and lubrication of the mind-body physiology. When kapha becomes excessive, you might experience congestion, sinus problems, weight gain and tiredness. Herbs that have light, heating and aromatic qualities help keep kapha balanced. We recommend taking the Kapha Balancing Herbal Supplements daily for the next 30 Days (1 tablet of each herb morning and evening after meals).
