Eight Constitutions - Pancreotonia

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

Pancreotonia is characterized by a superior pancreas (stomach) and inferior kidney (bladder). This constitution is also recognized for its considerably strong heart (small intestine) and relatively weak lungs (large intestine).

Because of their strong pancreas and stomach, Pancreotonians have appetite and may have a hard time restraining their hunger. If they consume spicy foods, chicken, apples, and herbal medicine, they will add heat to their strong pancreas, which will make controlling their appetite more difficult. Consumption of such foods may also cause them to be more susceptible to diabetes, and grow more impatient.

Common symptoms

    - Digestive disorders, Diabetes, Infertility, menstrual problems, Allergies, Depression.
