Kapha is a force created by the combination of earth and water.  Kapha is structure and lubrication. Kapha is the cells which make up our organs and the fluids which nourish and protect them.

 Kapha’s usually have large bodies on large frames.  Think of the Samoan people.  They gain weight easily and must exercise to lose it.  Their hair is thick, wavy, and oily.  Their eyes are big and attractive.  When kaphas are ill; congestion, excess mucous, and edema are common.  They are usually peaceful and content and they move slowly and waste little energy.
