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 E Phlegm-moisture Body Constitution.
Characteristics of Type E Phlegm-moisture Body Constitution
The biggest characteristics of a person with this body constitution are:
01 His reflection is often slow
02 His thinking is often slow
03 His movements are slow
04 His tongue coating is thick.
A person with all the above characteristics is a person with a type E phlegm-moisture body constitution.
A person with a phlegm-moisture body constitution is also particularly prone to obesity, leading to metabolic disorders and metabolic syndrome. He is prone to have high blood lipids, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar.
Generally speaking, Hyperlipidemia comes first, followed by high blood pressure, and high blood sugar. Of course, many middle-aged and elderly people have only one unsatisfactory condition out of the three.
The three unsatisfactory conditions are sister conditions, and they are generally induced by lifestyles that promote such conditions.
However, genes also play a decisive role, so the three conditions are easy to occur, familial prevalence is common, and intergenerational inheritance is also prone to occur.
Adjusting Type E Phlegm-moisture Body Constitution
As for the phlegm-moisture body constitution, the key is the transportation and transformation of excessive moisture inside the body.
The primary adjusting method for this type of body constitution is the Mustang Dietary Technique.
First, we eat slowly to give our digestive system time to do its work of transporting and transforming the nutrients of our foods.
Second, we should stop eating when we are 70% full for the same reasons. This we must do for every meal.
Third, we must sweat frequently. This is a fast way to get rid of excess moisture from inside our body. We may sweat by any means that is acceptable to us.
