Dear Gary Dehal,

I have several questions regarding my dual dosha. Last Saturday I went to a official ayurvedic doctor in Amsterdam to know what could of help me with my problems. The doctor identified that I had a Kapha-Vata dosha. I explained him that I have the following problems

Difficulty digesting food,(Constipation, Hemmerhoids, Not fully poop, sometimes poop little bits at a time)

Tired muscles, sometimes a feeling of pain in my bones/fingers and spine problems.

Very unhealthy skin, Whiteheads under the skin, Black heads, Big pores, It inflames sometimes what causes red bumps on my face which can stay for a while. Side effects of those are warmness, uncomfortable feeling, swollen skin,

Breathing problem from time to time. and feeling of tiredness and dull.

However, I will tell that I have a very bad lifestyle.

Some days I eat a lot of unhealthy sugar candies, I smoke(d) cigarettes(I quit yesterday) I smoke weed, (Planning on stopping tomorrow)and I tend to eat fast..

For these issues I know I can get rid of by stop eating sugar, not over eating, stop smoking. My question is:

!!Are there lifestyle tips, diet plans, Herbs, and foods to avoid?

According to the ayurvedic doctor he told me I had to cut out : Apples, sour fruit, Peanut butter, Chili, Potatoes, Pasta(1 x a week allowed whole grain pasta) Bananas.

He told me that Warm foods and Warm drinks are good for me. 3x5 times a day ginger(fresh) tea. Green tea. Warm milk with curcuma and only eat cooked vegetables.

Since I would like a second opinion I would like to get some information on how to detox my system and help my body deal with every day life. Sometimes I feel like a 50 year old person with all my issues. I know I have to address some food issues and lifestyle patterns I have but every other suggestion is deeply appreciated.

Help would be seriously appreciated, Thank you


Greetings !

It seems that your kapha dosha is very much aggravated. So you have to pacify that only. Along with other advise given by Ayurvda doctor please take 5 ml of Ginger juice half an hour before food twice a day for 7 days only. This will really help you a lot and then let me know the progress.
