You probably know your Myers-Briggs type and your astrological sign, but how about your constitutional type according to Chinese Medicine?
Your constitutional type is like the cards you’re dealt at birth: your physiological strength and temperament; whether we’re Type A, introverted or extroverted, people-oriented; which organ systems will tend to be rock-solid, and which ones will be challenge areas that need some extra support to stay healthy.
Identifying what type you are can help you recognize your super powers: your innate gifts. But it’s also useful in helping us recognize when we have become a caricature of ourselves: when our greatest strength becomes a limiting factor that's holding us back or knocking us out of balance.
Better yet, when you understand your constitutional type, you can start to get to know which acupoints, meridians, foods, tastes, and activities are going to be medicine for you. And that, my friend, opens up a whole new world of self-care. Intrigued?
Then my Introduction to 5 elements of Chinese medicine e-course is just for you.
I remember when I was first falling in love with Chinese Medicine, and learned that I was a Wood type. Like a tree, I have a whole lot of energy that wants to move upward and outward. If I'm not creating or learning something new, I feel like I'm stagnating. When my Wood is in balance, I'm wicked creative and productive and I love it. But too much of this striving/ driving energy can quickly lead to overwork, overdoing, depletion, burnout, depression, and illness. And knowing that about myself, I can keep myself in balance, rock my mission, and not break down.
You know that old adage, “When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail"? For jobs like getting nails into boards, yes, the hammer is indeed the best tool. But if we insist on always using the trusty hammer to unclog a pipe or tighten a screw, it’s easy to feel stuck, frustrated, anxious, and stressed.
The things is, we don’t have to be limited by our constitutional type, because we all possess all the elements within us. We have lots of colors on our palette, and don't have to paint with just our favorites.
Even though we’re dealt a set of cards at the start of the game, we get to throw a few of those cards back. Just because cancer or diabetes or cardiovascular disease runs in the family doesn’t mean we’re bound to get it.
We switch our DNA on and off all the time by making choices. Our diet, sleep, emotions, and levels of environmental toxicity all play a role in determining which genes are expressed and which are not. Our thoughts, beliefs, and outlook are even more malleable.
When we knows our Constitutional type, we can catch ourselves in those habitual thoughts, beliefs, and patterns that cause us stress and throw us out of balance and make a more wise, medicinal choice instead. We can use acupuncture points that help treat these particular imbalances, and we can use food as medicine to heal our bodies.
Recognizing that we don’t have to be bound by our go-to tendencies and habits, we are free to stretch into the fullness of our potential on all levels. We may even discover new latent superpowers -- inner strengths we have yet to realize.
That’s one of the main reasons I created the The basics of 5 elements to : to help you gain a new perspective on yourself, so you can transcend habits that no longer serve you and evolve.
When we can act with greater self-awareness, we open ourselves up to new possibilities and make choices that are healthy for our bodies, our minds, our relationships, and our world. The same applies for the animals that we care for and I trust you will find this introduction to how you can be more confident in approaching how you keep your animal friends happy, healthy and fulfilled.
