Vesicotonia is characterized by its superior bladder (kidney) and inferior stomach (pancreas). This constitution is also recognized for having a relatively strong gall bladder and considerably weak large intestine (lung).
Vesicotonias are gentle, collected, cool, and realistic. Because they are reserved and patient, they are good listeners. Thus, Vesicotonias tend to be profound candidates for work, which requires patience, few mistakes, attentiveness to detail, and sensitivity. When ill, they can grow greedy, negative, cold, stubborn, suspicious and close-minded easily.
Consumption of cold foods or drinks will further weaken the naturally weak stomach, causing diseases that are difficult to treat. During summers, when cold food is often preferred, Vesicotonias tend to be prone to illnesses; warm foods and beverages, light eating throughout the day, and infrequent perspiration will permit good health.
