CAPRICORN IS AN EARTH SIGN.
Excess earth is prone to heaviness in the body and sluggishness in the system, and the struggle to overcome inertia. Their digestion and metabolism are slow, increasing density of body tissue−i.e. thick skin, sclerosis, calcium deposits, tumors and increased body hair.
Capricorn's cell salt is calcium phosphate, which is the most important element in bone formation
Capricorn Rules : bones, joints, knees, and teeth. Capricorns are known for their beautiful bone structure .
Health Habits : Along with Leo and Sagittarius, Capricorn is noted for its longevity. Capricorn's bones, joints, and knees, however, may be vulnerable to rheumatism, arthritis, neuralgia, stiff joints, and orthopedic problems.
Eat : Lack of calcium phosphate can cause rickets, misshapen bones, spinal curvature, teeth disorders, and pains in the joints. Foods which are rich in this mineral are oranges, lemons, figs, celery, cabbage, dandelion greens, spinach, broccoli, corn, peas, potatoes, walnuts, almonds, whole wheat, oats, and brown rice. A diet high in protein and calcium is a must for Capricorn in order to keep the bones, skin and teeth in prime condition. Capricorns should include a fresh raw salad, fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, fish, eggs, whole-grain breads in their diet every day. They need lots of calcium food, such as yogurt.
Don't Eat : They should try to vary their diet with different vegetables, fruit, meat and fish, as Capricorns tend to get into a rut about food likes and dislikes, and often eat the same things every day. Eating chocolate and refined sugar is bad for Capricorn's skin. They should go easy on the highly seasoned and spicy food you are fond of, as it causes intestinal upsets.
