Vata& Kapha Type

Vata-Kapha Dominated Body Type:

Vata-Kapha Body & Mind: Vata-Kapha dominated personality must balance between episodes of vata and kapha dominance at different points in time. When vata is dominant, you may feel ungrounded, anxious, nervous and jittery, and when kapha is dominant, you may feel sluggish, dull and immobile. 

Vata-Kapha Skin: Dry skin and hair with episodes of damp oily skin issues such as acne, oily T-zone, skin rashes, freckles, sunburn, itching skin, early aging are some common concerns that vata-kapha dominated personality might experience.    

Vata-Kapha Skincare Ritual

Madyati Kaya Tailam: Apply herb-infused Madyati Kaya Tailam to soothe and calm the skin.


Diet for Radiant Kapha: 

Vata-kapha types must focus on a diet that is calming, warm, rich and bulky-forming when constipated, anxious or experience mood swings. During times of lazy, dull, stagnant episodes, focus on diet that is mildly stimulating using herbs like ginger and black pepper. Abide by these rules of Ayurveda to attain internal balance that reflects outwards as radiance:

  • Consume warm foods cooked with spices mildly.
  • Keep body well hydrated.
  • Consume good oils such as ghee, nuts and avocados to moisten skin from within.
  • Support digestive fire by avoiding refrigerated foods and drinks and cold beverages.
  • Nourishing foods for vata-kapha types include rice, quinoa, oats, whole wheat, red lentils, mung beans, tofu, sweet and juicy fruits like bananas, mangoes, papayas, apricots, peaches, pineapples, dates, kiwis, plums, melons, avocados, coconut and pomegranates. For this body type, spices help considerably. 

Vata-Kapha Dinacharya – The Selfcare Ritual:

Think nourishing, stimulating, uplifting practices if vata-kapha energies dominate your personality. Practice these dinacharya rituals to get back to balance.
  • Rise early and maintain discipline in your waking-up and sleeping routine. 
  • Internal and external hydration is the key as both vata and pitta are often hydration deficient. For external care, Shata Dhauta Ghrita hydrates deeply due to its hydrating and penetrating properties.
  • Abhyanga practice with Madyati Kaya Tailam or Cold-Pressed Sesame Oil helps body-mind come back to balance
  • Consume triphala at night to tonify the colon and support elimination. A night time foot massage practice with Cold-Pressed Sesame Oil supports good night sleep.
