Eight Constitutions Cholecystonia

Cholecystonia is a constitution in which gallbladder and liver are proportionally strong while large intestine and lung are proportionally weak.

Cholecystonia is a constitution in which gallbladder and liver are proportionally strong while large intestine and lung are proportionally weak.

For example, fatty liver, arthritis, obesity when strong organ-- the gallbladder—is overactive; depression, insomnia, bacterial/viral infections associated with decreased immunity can result from an overstimulated liver. Green leafy vegetables can cause constipation, diarrhea, irregular bowel movements; fish and seafood are associated with hypercholesterolemia and fatty liver. Cholecystonia vegetarians and vegans may have hyperlipidemia after being on a strict vegetarian or vegan diet for long periods of time. Drinking wine consumption can cause severe insomnia, depression, and dysautonomia.

Cholecystonia’s stomach and pancreas are the next strong organs after the gallbladder and liver. Spicy foods will overstimulate the stomach and cold foods can further weaken the large intestine; therefore, a combination of cold foods with spicy foods can result in chronic indigestion. Frequent bowel movements after meals can be indicative of a weakened large intestine. A strict constitutional dietary regimen whilst keeping the lower abdomen warm can recuperate the large intestine from a weak state.

Individuals with Cholecystonia tend to be generally reserved, sociable, cheerful and therefore have great interpersonal skills. However, when unhealthy, Cholecystonia can be depressed, dark, emotionally labile and short-tempered.

Cholecystonia can benefit overall from hot showers, perspiration from exercise, consumption of warm foods and beverages (which help maintain a warm internal state); such activities can also assist with good sleep. The general key health tip for Cholecystonia would be the following: ensuring that the body is warm (externally and internally), regular sleeping schedule, and a strict constitutional dietary regimen.

The above are not absolute characteristics, but general tendencies of Cholecystonia.

Lower abdominal discomfort, irregular bowel movements, depression, and insomnia are mainly due to compromised large intestine. Therefore, it is always advisable to warm the lower abdomen. A hot bath and wearing warm clothes while sleeping--even in hot season—can be beneficial. Refraining from drinking alcohol is recommended, as it is easy to get addicted. Seafood and wine are harmful.
