Fun Fact: Ah choo! Bless you. One of the symptoms of the plague was coughing and sneezing, and it is believed that Pope Gregory I (Gregory the Great), suggested saying “God bless you” after a person sneezed in hopes that this prayer would protect them from an otherwise certain death, according to the Library of Congress.


Ayurvedic Mucus Analysis. What's The Color of Your Snot Mean?

Known by many names including: mucus, bogey, snot, bogie, bugger, phlegm, gesnot, this discharge, when balanced, keeps us healthy. Mucus is primarily a manifestation of Kapha dosha and Kapha's role is to protect and lubricate. (Thanks Kapha!) When we conduct an Ayurvedic mucus analysis, we learn a lot.


What's the difference between phlegm and mucus? According to Premier Health, "Mucus is a thinner secretion from your nose and sinuses. Phlegm is thicker and is made by your throat and lungs."


Kapha dosha is governed by the elements of water and earth. Nourishing and reliable, Kapha provides structure and stability in our inner and outer worlds. Like the elements it represents, Kapha physical properties are moist, heavy, slow (or dullish), cool, stable, oily, and smooth.


Balanced Kapha supports earthiness, endurance, strength, and dependability. It protects critical systems from our immune system and personal boundaries, down to our stomach lining and the fluid in our joints. Out of balance, Kapha manifests as physical and mental “dullness.” We may put on a few extra pounds, or feel weighed down, lethargic, foggy, or depressed, and we might have excess mucus.


According to Ayurveda, the color and texture of your snot are indicators of our overall health. If our mucus is discolored, or too little or too much, this may indicate an imbalance in the doshas. When we understand how to analyze our mucus, we can proactively address health issues— as opposed to waiting until our symptoms become conditions and diseases.

"Ayurvedic snot or mucus diagnosis, is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that can see inside us. Think of snot, bowel movement, fingernails, urine, eyes, and sweat as a sort of bio-physiological MRI machine." - Veena, Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner, Saumya Ayurveda


Let's explore what the different colors of mucus indicate about your health and how to get rid of excess mucus with Ayurveda remedies.

The Sticky Truth About Mucus


How Ayurvedic Mucus Analysis Can Help You

By whatever names we call it, snot gets a bad rap. We see it (and so does everyone else) in our noses as a nuisance and embarrassment, but let’s step back and give mucus a chance to earn the respect it deserves.


When we think of mucus, we tend to think only of our noses and maybe sinuses, but the truth is there is a mucosal lining in all of the moist areas of our body including our eyes, mouth, nose, stomach, sinuses, and our thirty-foot-long digestive system. That's a lot of surface area.


According to Ayurveda, mucus, (aka Kapha dosha) has two jobs: 1. Kapha protects as it serves as a first line of defense. According to the National Institute of Health, we inhale thousands of microorganisms every hour. Think of snot like those sticky bug strips, bacteria lands on the mucus, and gets trapped.

Now consider pollen, dust, and smoke added to the mix, and we're starting to respect mucus the role snot plays a whole lot more. Mucus serves as a filter (protector) against anything we inhale. It's part of our immune system in that it protects us from the world we inhale. Pretty cool, isn't it?


2. Kapha lubricates the tissues to prevent them from drying out. Dry tissue is not much of a bug trap, so when our moist tissues are dry, they no longer function optimally. Think of dry eyes, dry skin, dry lips, dry digestive tract--constipation—and we quickly appreciate the importance of the moist quality of mucus.


" Think of mucus as a firewall between us and the world. Kapha's job of protecting and lubricating is important, and it plays a significant role in keeping us healthy." - Veena, Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner, Saumya Ayurveda

How Does Healthy Mucus (Kapha) Work?

We inhale thousands of microorganisms, dust, and allergens hourly. These invaders land on our mucosal lining and get trapped like bugs on fly paper. The cilia (tiny hairs) have the job of pushing mucus up and out of the lungs, like microscopic janitor's broom sweeping away viruses, bacteria, allergens, smoke, and dust.


From our eight sinus cavities, mucus flows like a gentle stream down the back of our throat and we never notice it when our doshas are balanced and healthy--it's just part of our swallowing routine that we perform unconsciously 18-400 times per hour, according to the National Institute of Health.

The mucus and all the crud in it is filtered out to protect us, it goes down stream to the stomach and well, out of our bodies and into the toilet.


Genius, right? Are you starting to respect Kapha in the form of mucus now?


Our bodies produce about one liter (or more) of mucus daily and its mostly water, which is another reason to hydrate well. Mucus "also contains special proteins, sugars, and molecules that help the body control harmful germs," according to the National Institute of Health.


We don't think about mucus as a liter of fluid flows through us daily as it protects and lubricates. But, once we get sick, all we can do is think about snot!

Too Much Mucus (Kapha)?


Let's face it, we don't pay attention to snot unless it increases in quantity and/or changes qualities be that color or consistency. Color, consistency, and volume are some of the characteristics of Ayurvedic mucus analysis.


When we experience postnasal drip, throat clearing, sore throat, a cough, a clogged or runny nose, or phlegm in the chest, we definitely take notice of our mucus factory then.


What Causes Excess Mucus?

Imbalanced Kapha dosha is the main culprit when we're flowing and blowing. Where does it all keep coming from?!

What Else Causes Excess Mucus?


"Allergies can also cause your body to make extra mucus. When we have an allergic response, our immune system overreacts to a harmless substance, like pollen, dust, or animal dander...Histamine can make us sneeze. It also causes the mucous membranes in the nose to swell and the glands to make more mucus, " according to the National Institute of Health.


It gets even more mind (and nose) blowing. "An infection can make mucus thicker and stickier. Infections also may lead to inflammation in the mucous membranes that line the nose and the rest of your airway. This can cause certain airway glands to make more mucus. That mucus can get thick with bacteria and cells that arrive to fight the infection. That can stimulate even more mucus production." (National Institute of Health. ) And around and around it goes.

When our nose is running it's miserable, yet insufficient flow of mucus isn't healthy either. It's all about gaining and maintaining dosha balance in Ayurveda.

1. What does clear mucus mean in Ayurveda?


According to Ayurveda, thick clear mucus indicates imbalanced Kapha, and thin clear mucus indicates Vata. Cold weather and spicey, hot foods can increase watery mucus production. Allopathic medicine views clear mucus as "normal."

Ayurvedic Mucus Analysis: What the Color of Your Snot Says About Your Health  image of a clear blob of mucus

Ayurvedic Remedies for Excess Clear Mucus

1. Ayurveda Herbs:
  • Ginger: Ginger generates ignite agni (digestive fire) and promotes heat in the body. Ginger can help expel mucus, stimulate the metabolism, and kickstart sluggish indigestion. Balancing for Vata and Kapha, may aggravate Pitta.

  • Turmeric: Astringent turmeric has antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is cleansing and mobilizing – while supporting immune system function. Balances all three doshas, but get too much and it may aggravate Vata and Pitta.

  • Cinnamon: Enkindles digestive and other fires (agni), helps to eliminate toxins (ama), reduces Kapha dosha in the respiratory system, and it increases circulation to the extremities (warm up those cold toes!) Heating and sweetly delicious, cinnamon is balancing to Vata and Kapha, but may aggravate Pitta.

  • Tulsi: A sacred plant for body and mind, tulsi is also known as holy basil. It is warming, clears the mind, and imparts is sattvic qualities. Ideal for Vata and Kapha, for Pitta tulsi needs to be used moderately.

  • Pippali: An effective decongestant, pippali is great for managing coughs and releasing mucus. Supportive for Vata and Kapha, but Pitta needs to enjoy tulsi in moderation.



2. Ayurveda Food is Medicine
  • If thick mucus is present, follow a Kapha Ayurveda diet focusing on foods that are warm and light, are pungent, bitter and astringent. Enjoy plenty of cooked and properly spiced vegetables. Dairy, fried foods, cold foods, fatty foods, sugary and salty foods need to be avoided.

  • If thin mucus is present, follow a Vata Ayurveda diet focusing on foods that are warm, moist, oily, well spiced, easy to digest such as Vata kitchari Favor flavors that are sweet, salty, and sour and avoid pungent, bitter and astringent tastes.

  • Move daily. Walking, swimming, cycling, and hiking. Kapha needs vigorous movement and Vata benefits from slow, fluid movement that does not overly strenuous.


According to Harvard Health, walking offers several health promoting benefits, including lowering blood pressure and cholesterol and relieving depression.

  • Surya Namaskar (sun salutation) is the chief morning yog-asana. This series of 12 gentle poses opens you to greet and internalize the sun's energy into your own system.

  • Vata benefits from slow, gentle yog-asana with an emphasis on restorative postures such as:

  1. Viparita Karani (Legs Up Wall)

  2. Makarasana (Crocodile Pose)

  3. Balasana (Child’s Pose)

  4. Savasana (Corpse Pose)

  • Yog-asana/Movement: Yog-asana refers to the physical postures of yogic practice. Morning yog-asana stimulates the digestive fire and prepares your body for a healthy breakfast. It also releases stress and tension and energizes the body and mind.

Penn Medicine states, " White blood cells rush to battle infection, and when they’ve done their job, they get flushed out of the body along with the virus. The yellow color comes from dead white blood cells, which can turn green if there are a lot of white blood cells and other debris."

What Does Meditation Have to Do With Mucus? When the doshas are imbalanced it creates a strain on the body and mind. When that happens, we're more susceptible to illness. Using our 3-step meditation process, being grounded, calm, focused, and naturally energized is the norm. When that's flowing, we're less likely to become sick.
