A guide to cleansing for the kapha dosha

kapha dosha

Kapha  types   can really benefit from regular cleansing as they are the one  dosha  that is most susceptible to congestive build-ups due to their slower digestive system and overall metabolism.

The important point to remember about the  kapha dosha  is that they have a naturally lower body temperature and, in order to encourage the processes of cleansing and detoxification, they need a bit of heat. So, foods during a cleanse should still be simple and vegetable-based, but they should be warm and spiced. Avoid the addition of any oils or dairy as these are especially hard for a  kapha  type to break down.

Think about adding herbs such as  ginger , black pepper and  turmeric  into your meals. Herbs that keep  kapha  in check are those which are generally more heating and stimulating with the power to shift deep congestion. Pukka Wholistic Turmeric capsules and Clean Chlorella tablets pack a slightly hotter punch and will help remove sticky, tough accumulations from the body.

Pair this with Pukka teas that will help stoke digestive fires such as After Dinner, Revitalise, Turmeric Gold, Three Fennel and Three Ginger.

Pointers that are helpful for all three  dosha  would be to keep diets simple; vegetable-based and dairy-free as well as reducing or cutting out caffeine and alcohol. Keep exercise to a minimum and remember not to overdo it as your body will be working harder than usual during a cleanse.
