KAPHA Personality

Calm, grounded, nurturing and loving

The main location of KAPHA in the body are head, throat, chest, lungs, lymph, tissues, tendons and ligaments. Kapha is responsible for providing moisture, lubricating joints, maintaining healthy tissues and providing structure and stability to the body.

KAPHA In Balance

Balanced Kapha helps offset the imbalances due to Vata and Pitta. Balanced Kapha dogs are calm, loving and patient companions.

KAPHA Out of Balance

The calm and patient dog can transform into a lazy dog, when Kapha is out of balance. Kapha imbalances can lead to possessiveness, depression and greed. Physically it leads to weight gain.
