The Kapha Diet Rules To Follow

If you are a Kapha person you may have experienced that even after following a Kapha diet, you still face Kapha disorders. The reason could be wrong eating habits.

When it comes to pacifying Kapha, how and when you eat may be just as important as what you eat. Kapha gets pacified if you make it a point to eat in a peaceful environment, allowing enough time to chew your food.

Also, keep a healthy balance of hydrating and drying foods. Eat a light breakfast and two major meals at the proper times. Do not eat in between meals, except some fruit or a small quantity of a dry Kapha reducing snack.

This further keeps Kapha in balance and aids the delicate digestion of Kapha. Avoid water with meals (except a few sips) and immediately after meals to help preserve the delicate digestive fire.

This also helps prevent the production of mucus or morbid material of indigestion known in Ayurveda as ama.

Sometimes, it is impossible to avoid all Kapha aggravating foods. When that is the case simply cook them in a Kapha pacifying medium like mustard oil. Or combine them with Kapha pacifying foods and spices.

Spicing them appropriately and using tastes like pungent or bitter, helps you digest the food properly without aggravating Kapha.

Being a Kapha prakriti person (Kapha body type) or having Kapha aggravation, occasional fasting on spiced boiled vegetables and soups can be beneficial.
