Type B



You have an energy deficiency inside your body, and your body’s ability to warm itself (the power of Yang) is declining. No matter how hard you try to warm up your body, the core of the body remains cold and you have difficulty staying warm. Some symptoms that tend to arise from this condition are; cold hands and feet, cold stomach, having a sensitive stomach, and having an upset stomach often. You are someone that tends to have poor posture and sometimes you get pain in the back, chest, and lower back. This type is often found in people with a calm and introverted personality, and people who are weak and/or have a low immune system.
