Karehealth sounds like a website, do you have one ?


Hi Adrienne, Yes we do have a website. Sorry I wasn't very clear in my previous answer. I hope the following explains my answer better :)
In Ayurveda, three elemental substances are defined. These are called the Doshas. The three doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
Vata is controls bodily functions related to motion such as blood circulation, breathing and heartbeat. Pitta controls your metabolic systems which includes digestion which in turn includes how well your body absorbs nutrition from food. Kapha controls growth in the body and immune system.
According to Ayurvedic theory, balance of the doshas results in health while imbalance leads results in disease. All Ayurvedic treatments and therapies are prescribed according to doshas. The same goes for ayurvedic diet. The heating or cooling effect of the food on the doshas is considered. You can either be classified as a single dosha or combination of doshas.

Hi!

Lovely to find your question...always great to see people interested in Ayurveda.

"Cooling foods" are Kapha-type foods...dairy, vegetables like cucumber, fruits like melons. Here is a great list of Water-Kapha foods, gemstones and colours...(read the section under "supressed Kapha" for things that are cooling...)

All the best with your "cooling off"! :-D
