Dominant Temperament: Choleric
Based on your answers your dominant temperament is Choleric (also known as Sufra (yellow bile)). People with a dominant Choleric temperament tend to be warm and dry. Usually of short or tall stature, their build tends toward being slim. Their complexion is often brown and may have some tinges of yellow. Digestion and appetite tends to be one of the yellow bile type’s stronger areas. Personality wise they tend to be quick witted when healthy, but also quick to temper. These people are often ambitious and driven individuals. Sleep can be difficult for these active people, and insomnia could result.
As your temperament is warm and dry, the general dietary recommendation is to eat more cold and moist foods, and less hot and dry foods. The following is a list of “cold” and “moist” foods:
Meat and dairy: Avoid too much meat except, goat’s meat, Goat’s bones marrow, white sea fish, sheep’s milk and cheese, yogurt, eggs particularly egg white
Vegetables: beet, zucchini, lettuce, spinach, pumpkin and squash and cucumber
Fruit: orange, green apples, prunes, pears, water melon, apricots,
Grains and lentils: barley, lentils
Foods to avoid: Avoid all spices and most meat
Remember no one person is ever one temperament and they tend to have a major and minor temperament (e.g. Yellow Bile and Blood). To find out your exact temperament book an appointment with me for a detailed analysis and complete diet suggestions to optimise your health.
