Dairy/milk/cheese/ice-cream


Written by John Immel, Asheville, NC
Dairy creates heaviness, cloudy thoughts, bloating and constipation for many. It provokes weight gain, mucus and Kapha dosha. Although adult humans have adapted to milk, it was originally intended for babies. Lactose intolerance may be quite natural.

Aggravated Doshas & Qualities

Imbalance Accumulates

Improper food and lifestyle causes balances to accumulate. Ayurveda shows you exactly which doshas and qualities will accumulate in your body. Once these doshas and qualities accumulate too much, they will begin to cause disease. You can reduce an imbalanced dosha or quality by removing things that aggravate it from your diet and lifestyle.

'Dairy/milk/cheese/ice-cream' is likely to aggravate the following doshas and qualities.If you have a systemic imbalance of one of these doshas or qualities, Ayurveda would generally recommend removing, substitute or lessen the frequency of Dairy/milk/cheese/ice-cream.

Hi, I m a Kapha-Vata and the doctor told me to avoid yogurts and reduce milk. Is there any other substitute I could have. Soya milk, yogurt ? Is fresh cheese like cottage cheese, quark etc ok ? Does the same apply to goat or sheep milk products? Thanks
