Effect of Oestrogen Dominance

Effect of Oestrogen Dominance

The Ayurveda Experience March 05, 2016

Kapha dosha over produces medo dhatu. Usually excess fats in the body is a result of kapha dosha imbalance. In the physical body fats can produce oestrogen. When we have too much oestrogen in the system in relationship to progesterone we can have a a lot of female reproductive challenges.

Oestrogen dominance can cause stress because of excess weight, and it can make life difficult in terms of everyday activities and may even challenge fertilization.

The dhatu Agni for kapha is typically low, this can result in high quantity and poor quality tissue along with formation of toxicity ‘ama’. With low dhatu Agni, kapha dosha tends to supply too much food to the dhatu. When we over feed a dhatu layer, we suppress the dhatu Agni (we put it out), this results in us feeling tired and lethargic.

In this case, movement in terms of exercise can help increase internal temperature as it increases the rate of chemical reaction (increases the demand for quality tissue), making kapha dosha person feel better. This simply means that the kapha dosha person needs to heat up the body to create balance. Heating up will not only stimulate the mind but counter the effects of kapha dosha.

There are various ways to heat up the body, the first one being eating light food. Secondly, kapha dosha person can stimulate the mind by learning something new, or indulging in engaging conversations. However if and when kapha dosha is left to its own devices, it will slow everything down and create greater stagnation.

When person with a kapha dosha imbalance actively works against those tendencies of kapha dosha they will create a greater sense of invigoration in the body.
