“The eight constitutions are eight different dynamic orders between twelve organs.
The twelve organs are the heart, the lung, the pancreas, the liver, the kidney, the small intestine, the large intestine, the stomach, the bladder, the gall bladder, the sympathetic nerve and the parasympathetic nerve of the autonomic nervous system.
The eight dynamic orders of those organs physically and mentally form eight distinctive individualities–those are what we call the eight constitutions.”
(Dowon Kuon, 1994)
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the case of human-frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
