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

Gastrotonia is characterized by its superior stomach (pancras) and inferior bladder (kidney). This constitution is also recognized for its relatively strong large intestine (lung) and relatively weak gall bladder (liver).

Gastrotonias' strong and tense stomach often causes indigestion. Their digestive problems are often accompanied by chronic headaches and pain throughout the body. herbal medicine and antibiotics can cause severe side effects for this constitution. Spicy foods, chicken, apples, and herbal medicine not only cause digestive problems, but can also result in anxiety disorder and malfunction of autonomic nervous system.
