Dietary dos and don’ts for those with excessive body types
Chinese medicine theory categorizes human body types into 8 different kinds. There are 4 asthenia types we previously discussed: qi deficiency, blood deficiency, yin deficiency and yang deficiency, the remaining 4 excessive body constitutions are qi stagnation, blood stasis, phlegm and dampness, and damp heat. You should not jump on the bandwagon to overly nourish your body. It is not suitable for everyone to eat super food. For example, those with phlegm and dampness body constitution may become sleeping when consuming too much nourishing and tonic food. Those with damp heat who eat turmeric every day may get a sore throat! The most important thing is to find balance by eating proper ingredients that match your body constitution.
