You have a very Cold Constitutional Temperature. Some of the following suggestions may contradict others given elsewhere in this report. If so, you must decide which are the most important. Experimenting, if necessary can be instructive.
Doctors very often disagree among themselves. In many ways you know yourself better than anyone else can. With that in mind, here are some ideas to help deal with a Cold Constitution:
Limit your intake of dairy products, salads or uncooked foods, fruits and cold foods. Never use ice.
Emphasize meats – beef or chicken soup, stews, easily digested food. Teas – ginger, cinnamon, clove, Chinese ginseng. Spices – cayenne, nutmeg, garlic (if no sensitivity), black pepper, fennel, orange or tangerine peel (in tea or soups).
General lifestyle tips. Always dress warmly, especially in winter. Keep your feet warm. Try to eat everything hot, and get daily exercise to improve your circulation.
