i find there is a lot of value in Ayurveda, and considered going to the practitioner school at Kripalu to learn more. im also kapha with a dash of pitta. some of the recommendations i find so wonderful, and the general idea to go against ones nature is immensely helpful. im firmly rooted to the earth and will practice weightlifting and yin yoga all day but will only run if someone is chasing me with a knife! i do try to incorporate some of the dietary recommendations, but overall i did not see a great result (in terms of weight or disease management) when i adopted the kapha recommendations completely. i have had more luck being paleo (as far as my weight, but also for my pitta-related multiple sclerosis) than with the kapha diet recommendations but i do employ some of the lifestyle recommendations (netti, yoga, self-massage) and drink A LOT of ginger tea! i dont know a ton about Ayurveda, but much of what ive learned seems very intuitive and shouldnt be dismissed.
ETA: i eat a lot of raw cabbage, ghee, cauliflower, ginger, brussels, daikon, rapini, kale, green onions, asparagus, lemon and lime zest and juice, cinnamon, green and red chile peppers, bone broth as a beverage or light soup, green onions, turmeric (both as a spice and as a supplement), cumin, coriander, curry, and i drink a lot of hot herbal tea throughout the day. i also will add ginger or cinnamon essential oils to my self-massage oil to make it warming.
