How Can This Ayurvedic Food Make You Feel Great?
Kapha and Pitta beware of high salt content. When used appriopriately salt can be one of the most powerful medicinal 'herbs' for Vata. It encourages a dry colon to stay moist allowing for easy flow of the bowels. Salt also encourages water retention and raises blood pressure.
Ferments in general (alcohol, bread, yogurt, cheese, etc) pacfiy Vata but increase Pitta and Kapha. Since they contain the metabolic by products of bacteria (i.e. bacteria poop!), overuse reduces quality of the blood.
