Has anyone else used Tracy Stewart’s Sasang constitution and diet services? She was featured in Qiological episode 62 back on December 11, 2018.
I was immediately drawn to it and had her an analysis for me which was spot on and immensely helpful. Only recently have I been referring my most challenging patients with excellent results every time. I am careful in selecting those patients who know how to cook and are willing to follow directions.
Yesterday a patient relayed information about her response to the Sasang constitutional diet changes. 95% of her symptoms are gone after 10 days of following the diet close but not even 100% to the letter!
Her constitution is the hot and dry So-Yang requiring the cooling/neutral diet. She presentation to me looked very cold with some damp with blood stasis. The only clear heat signs were negative reactions to warming spices and herbs which we only figured out after I gave her a warm formula. She was following the turmeric/cinnamon/ginger on everything trend but never made the connection that these were aggravating her dizziness, blood sugar, digestive, and premenstrual spotting issues. I have been combing through her chart looking for clues that might have led me to see the heat but find nothing. She huddles in her huge down parka when we talk. Her whole body and abdomen feels cold. On initial intake she reported preferring warm food and drink. In retrospect, her gi system was in such turmoil and she was trying so many different strategies with food and supplements, she might not have been a great reporter on the real effects of hot and cold on her gi tract. So interesting!
