However, if we manage to balance Kapha in our body we can combat these symptoms and feel strong, serene and stable (also attributes of Kapha).

At that time, the impurities inside the body merge due to the rise in temperature in the environment. Liquid toxins obstruct the ducts of the body and, when these are blocked, nutrients do not properly reach the cells, and the capacity of the immune system to resist the allergens becomes saturated. This is the mechanism that gives place to the allergies spring-congestion and itching nasal, eyes teary-that are between the first 10 causes of visit to the medical.

How to balance it? Imagine your body as a glass of juice of Orange. If remains much time still in a position, the pulp is accumulated in the Fund. The Yogis believed that the same happens in our body, particularly in the organs. In this case, the pulp is not organic matter undigested, that we take through the air we breathe and the food. With sufficient hydration and exercise, these toxins can emerge through the skin (by sweat), breath, urine and bowel movements.
