Phlegm Dampness vs. Damp-Heat Constitution
【Phlegm Dampness Constitution】
Poor appetite, dizziness, chest stuffiness, and a constant feeling of drowsiness, along with a lack of motivation to do things? If you think it’s due to sleep deprivation but find that sleeping more only gives you a headache, it might be influenced by a phlegm dampness constitution. Urban lifestyles often involve irregular eating habits and a preference for greasy, fried, oily, cold, and sweet foods and beverages. This damages the spleen and stomach, leading to dampness accumulation and gradually forming a phlegm dampness constitution. Common symptoms also include soft muscles, edema, abdominal bloating, and loose stools.
Pointer of conditioning: regulate qi and clear phlegm
Suitable: dried citrus peel, cooked coix seeds, poria, rice beans, hairy gourd, hyacinth bean coat, etc.
Avoid: raw/cold things such as ice cream, salad, sashimi or cold drink, etc. Nourishing ingredients such as milk tea or cheese. Ingredients that can replenish yin such as fish maw and snow fungus, etc.

Have you ever experienced stool that sticks to the toilet and is difficult to clean, causing embarrassment? This signifies a damp-heat constitution! In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this type of stool is referred to as “”sticky stools””. They are not well-formed but not quite diarrhea. They come with a particularly strong odor and result from long-term dietary habits of overindulging in rich, greasy, and heavily flavored foods, leading to the formation of a damp-heat constitution. Associated symptoms include sensations of heat, thirst, bad breath, oily skin, abdominal bloating, chest stuffiness, and a tendency to feel drowsy.
Pointer of conditioning: clear heat and dispel dampness
Suitable: winter melon, watermelon, night-blooming cereus, mung bean, lotus leaf, coix seeds, arrowroot, smilax or seaweed, etc.
Avoid: nourishing ingredients such as milk tea or cheese. Ingredients that can replenish yin such as fish maw, snow fungus, glehnia root and radix ophiopogonis, etc. Replenishing ingredients such as glutinous rice, durian, lamb, beef, chicken essence, Chinese red dates water or ginger tea, etc.
