Choosing Food & Herb Remedies Based on the Phlegmatic Temperament
Phlegmatics seem to do well on, both, vegetarian and traditional diets.
The idea is to provide your body the foods, herbs, spices and beverages (nutrients) that are opposite from your dominant humors to correct humor imbalances.
Phlegmatics have a primarily COLD/WET constitution. You would choose nutrients that are HOT and DRY to create balance and restore health and wellness.
HOT Choices: Hot foods are also considered "Heating'. Choose from onions, garlic, ginger, chicken, horseradish, walnuts, duck, lamb, garbanzo beans, lemon, apple, olives, aged cheeses, walnuts, peppers, chai, ginger, cloves, cardomom and any foods or nutrients that stimulate the metabolism or make one sweat. Also, foods that are roasted tend to increase in warmth.
DRY Choices: Dry food choices are also considered 'Light'. Choose from rice cakes, popcorn, corn, most beans (such as garbanzo), sunflower seeds, pomegranates, asparagus, dried fruits, aged cheeses, any foods or nutrients that are physically dry, such as bread or crackers, or that aid in eliminating excess body fluid through sweating or urinating.
HOT or DRY Herb Choices: Astragalus (HOT/DRY), Ashwagandha (HOT/WET), Elderberry (COLD/DRY), Holy Basil (HOT/DRY), Rosemary (HOT/DRY), Turmeric (HOT/DRY), Lemon Balm (COLD/DRY), Red Raspberry (COLD), St John's Wort (COOL/DRY), Saw Palmetto (HOT/WET), Motherwort (Neutral/DRY), Valerian (WARM), Ginger (WARM)
You'll find that many of the same foods that are considered HOT are also DRY, but not all.
