Eight Constitution Regimen

If you eat right according to your constitution, you will maintain optimal health. If not, you will not only become weak but even your health can be seriously deteriorated. Foods not only function as daily source of energy but what you eat constitutes you and build up your immune system. Foods according to your own constitution will strengthen your natural healing power (immune system) which will protect us against all kinds of disease, but foods harmful to our constitution will weaken our natural healing power and make us susceptible to disease. This is the reason why you need to know your own constitution.

Individual constitution can be categorized into 8 different patterns as listed below, based upon the relationship between the organs. One should know one's own unique constitutional physiology as well as general physiology, in order to live a healthy life.
