I have been considering the heavy dense body type in relation to liver excess.
I am treating a 43 year old obese woman who has been dieting strictly for quite a while and has not been able to lose any weight. She is also exercising.
Even though she is obese she seems to be SJ excess.
SJ excess: doesn’t like bright sun 8+ eyes bright 6+ controlling 8+ needs a shield from mother 8+
Her mother strongly disapproves of her weight and always has. She has been controlling since childhood in pushing her daughter to lose weight.
My client feels that one of the reasons for her extra weight is to shield her from her mother…
This certainly points to SJ excess and the need for a shield.
Her extra weight is not heavy and dense it is more soft and flabby. This has what has allowed me to even consider tonifying liver for her.
Is there a concern however in tonifying liver - which is so yin in someone who already has SO much yin?
But - she is also very focused on how she feels and whether her basal temp is up or down, if she ovulated this month (has always had fertility issues - but not planning to have any more kids - has 2 daughters)… So is that Liv excess?
I’ll include other details just to give a clearer picture:
SI trouble conceiving 9+
kid put together 7+ focused on her issues and helping herself 8+
Sp overweight with normal skin 8+
Bl basal body temp not high enough every month to ovulate 8+ doesnt like cold 7+
SJ controlling 6+ hates mess 7+
Liv overly focused on her body and how she feels 7+
