Kapha and Respiratory Health


Kapha’s qualities are damp, cold, soft, sticky, jelly-like, heavy, blocking and stable. These qualities naturally accumulate over the winter but are readily felt during the Spring. As the weather warms kapha begins to flow and move from its solid-state.

The fluid state of kapha creates respiratory congestion with a damp mucus-like fluid. As the warm weather of Spring takes hold many people will experience sinus congestion, coughing, watery eyes, allergies, and headache. This is a common yet seasonally natural symptom of excess kapha moving out of the body.
