Eight Constitutions - Cholecystonia

“The descriptions below illustrate general tendencies of each constitution and are not absolute”

Cholecystonia is characterized by its superior or strong gall bladder (liver) and inferior large intestine (lung). This constitution is also recognized for having a considerably strong small intestine (heart) and a relatively weak bladder (kidney).

Frequent bowel movement and discomfort in the lower abdomen is common for Cholecystonias who consume seafood often because seafood further suppresses an already weak large intestine and stimulate naturally-excited gall bladder and liver, causing illness. Consumption of seafood may also cause arthritis, skin problems, high cholesterol, and obesity. When ill, cholecystonias tend to lose their charitable nature, grow negative and anxious, which can eventually cause insomnia or depression.

Common symptoms

    - Anxiety, Depression, Headache, Stroke, Irregular bowel movement, Acne, Allergies, Respiratory symptoms.
