Eight Constitutions: The Key to Optimal Health and Well-Being
In Eight-Constitution Medicine, the dynamic orders of the organs are classified into eight unique individualities, known as The Eight Constitutions. Understanding the autonomic nervous system and elemental essences of each constitution is essential in forming regimens, constructing treatment-formulas, and deriving preventative means for each individual.
The autonomic nervous system controls most physiological phenomena and can be subdivided into the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Among the Eight Constitutions, Pulmotonia, Colonotonia, Renotonia, and Vesicotonia belong to the subcategory Sympathicotonia, while Hepatonia, Cholecystonia, Pancreotonia, and Gastrotonia belong to the subcategory Vagotonia. The elemental essence of the strongest organ of a constitution is the dominant essence of the constitution, and is hereditary.
Two individuals with the same constitution have the same dynamic order of organs and show similarity in physical and mental aspects. It is highly probable that their health conditions, including diseases or illnesses, are very similar if they have similar diets and living environments. Understanding our own constitutions as well as others is key to accessing a healthy life.
