As practitioners of life cultivation, we like to adjust our body so that our body is in perfect balance and we are in perfect health.
The Type A constitution is referred to as the Pinghe Type, or the Neutral and Balanced type. This type of body constitution is the perfectly healthy body. All other types of body constitution is deviation from the Pinghe type.
We will differentiate the basic characteristics of each body constitution type. We will then discuss how we can adjust our body so that they become the Type A body constitution.
Herbal medicine is a practical science. In the long course of its development, many schools and branches of herbal medicine have undergone changes. However, with the progress of time, herbal medicine has evolved with time, although many people still misunderstand herbal medicine.
We may sum up herbal medicine with just one sentence.
Take the power of nature, coupled with the good fortune of God, we will achieve the beauty of success.
Classification of Body Constitution
The classification of body constitution is a relatively new concept. It was developed in the last thirty years.
Let us ask ourselves. Is our body a teddy bear or a fine lady?
Although everyone looks human on the outside, they are very different inside. With the onslaught of various bad lifestyles, we have developed mental stress leading to hair loss, inability to sleep and poop, etc. There are fewer and fewer healthy people.
Many people will say that humans are living longer now compared to that of a caveman and that proves that we are healthier than before.
But which is more important, quality of life or length of life? Actually, it’s all important. If we spend the rest of our life in bed, is it not a tragedy?
Thus, we will look into different types of body constitution, and the adjustment thereof.
Let us recap the different types of body constitution below.
- Type A Pinghe (Normal, Typical, Neutral, Balanced Type)
- Type B Qixu (Energy-deficient Type)
- Type C Yangxu (Yang-deficient Type)
- Type D Yinxu (Yin-deficient Type)
- Type E Tanshi (Phlegm-moisture Type)
- Type F Shire (Moisture-heat Type)
- Type G Xueyu (Blood-stasis Type)
- Type H Qiyu (Energy-depressed Type)
- Type I Tebing (Special-intrinsic Type)
Well, these nine body constitution all have different characteristics, manifestations, and specific disease tendencies. However, we have different techniques to adjust our body so that it will return to its perfectly healthy state.
Here we will share our knowledge. We hope everyone can sit down and take decisive measures as soon as possible to attain perfect health. This way you will rejuvenate your body to that of an eighteen-year-old again.
Let us discuss the different body constitution one by one. Let us continue with the Type D Yin-deficient Body Constitution.
04 Type D Yin-deficient body constitution
The simplest way to differentiate between the yang-deficient body and the yin-deficient body is: a person who is afraid of cold is deficient in yang-energy, and he who is afraid of heat is deficient in yin-energy. This is the easiest way to distinguish yin-deficiency from yang-deficiency. Of course, there are people who are both yin-deficient and yang-deficient.
The characteristics of the Type D yin-deficient body constitution can be summarized as follows:
01 A yin-deficient body often shows dryness.
02 His stomach is full of fire. He is hungry after eating a lot, which is not a sign of good digestion. It may be due to the fire of yin-deficiency so the stomach function is hyperactive. He does not have a good stomach because we can check his stomach with a gastroscope. We will find that his stomach is red inside like a small stove. The typical yin-deficiency and fire are strung into the stomach fire. But fortunately, these are not serious diseases. They are all functional disorders, not organic diseases.
03 A yin-deficient body shows chapped lips and the skin is especially prone to dryness. Because of yin-deficiency, the yin-energy and softness of a yin-deficient body is not sufficient to moisturize it, so the skin is rough and coarse. It feels like sandpaper to the touch.
04 A person with a Type D yin-deficient body is generally thin, but he has high spirit, and his eyes are very sharp. He is easily excitable, so it is easy for him to have an erection. He is as thin as a monkey, but his eyes are very bright, but he is often irritable and he sweats easily while sleeping.
05 A person with a Type D yin-deficient body constitution will have a very fast pulse and his mood will fluctuate greatly.
06 He is susceptible to depression.
07 His hands and feet are usually warm.
As practitioners of Life Cultivation, we share this knowledge hoping that everyone will pay attention to this phenomenon as soon as possible to maintain his health. There are certain rules for us to follow here.
First, the type D yin-deficient body constitution is given a comprehensive description here. If a person has all the characteristics, he is considered to have a yin-deficient body. If he has only one or two characteristics, he is not considered to have the Type D body constitution.
Second, many people have multiple body constitutions. We should distinguish between the primary and secondary body constitution.
A type D yin-deficient body constitution is considered a deviation from the balanced body. Therefore, we should learn ways to adjust our body so that it will return to a balanced state.
A person with a Type D yin-deficient body should eat more fruits. This is important. He should eat more fruits. He should eat more fruits. He should eat more fruits.
Please note that each food often corresponds to a certain mental state. When we eat a specific food, our mood will change accordingly. For example, we will feel depressed after eating stinky tofu. We will feel happy after eating oranges. The unity of man and nature can be observed in all aspects of life. The way of heaven is also the way of humanity.
However, a person with a Type D yin-deficient body constitution should live an orderly life in work and play. He should keep his mind peaceful and calm.
A person with yin-deficiency will have a higher than normal inner heat with his body. If he does not put out the fire, the whole body will be on fire. Therefore, he should eat foods rich in water and vitamins, so he can put out the fire and nourish the yin-energy. Of course, nutrition such as sugar, fat, protein, cellulose, vitamins, trace elements, etc. are indispensable too.
Many people try to lose weight by following a very extreme diet plan and that will not work. If he only eats fruit all day long, he will be hungry and lose weight. However, because the nutrition is completely unbalanced, once he recovers from his diet plan, he will rebound every second.
Only healthy weight loss is reliable, and a normal body shape is the natural external manifestation of a healthy body. Hunger therapy can easily lead to endocrine disorders, triggering more outlandish problems.
