Remedies for balancing Kapha:


To balance excess kapha, foods and drinks opposite that are light, dry, spicy, acidic, hot should be eaten.

Those foods that are bitter and astringent (sharp) in taste should be increased in the diet.

Cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, carrots, beans, lettuce, spices can be included.

Steaming and increased physical exercise (mobility and movement) alleviates kapha.

Emetic therapy, or supervised vomiting, is the prime therapy for severely disturbed kapha, as the main physical location is the stomach and upper body.


  • Over eating, sleeping during the daytime.
  • Consuming too much sweets and fried foods should be avoided.
  • Dairy Products should be avoided.
