Master Ruth Lee

"I went to Beijing, where I believe is the best place to learn Chinese medicine. Because in the long, long time ago, only the Emperor, only the imperial family could afford to learn or afford to have the best doctors around them. So there's a lot of really great masters. They taught me about fire needling, abdominal needling, head sculpt needling, they have a lot of experiences that they are so selflessly sharing with me. So I really want to learn some knowledge that I can use in life for the ones that I love."

Traditional Chinese Medicine Nine Body Constitutions Course

Why Should I Learn This

Knowing the Properties of Food

In Chinese Medicine, emphasis is placed on the unique nature and properties of food, it is believed that all foods contain their own unique properties. Usually, they will include cooling, hot, cold, neutral.

Diet and Exercise

Similar to food, our bodies have their own unique body constitution, which can be inherited but also influenced by lifestyle factors such as the climate you live in, types of exercise, and diet.

Learn from Professionals

In this course, we will explore the 9 different body types according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, taught by Master Ruth Lee, Founder of Master Ruth Clinic.

Identify Your Body Type

We will also include how to identify your unique body constitution, and also what types of food & exercises may correspond best to your unique body constitution.

Relatable Examples

For instance, Master Ruth shares how even though celery juice is thought to be generally healthy, according to TCM it contains cooling properties so it is best suited to those with a more “hot” body constitution.

Theoretical Explanations

On the other hand, if your body type has more heat, and you take a lot of Ginger, then it could potentially cause constipation.
Understanding different body constitutions is one of the fundamental pillars in Traditional Chinese Medicine when it comes to diagnosing, treating, and maintaining health and wellbeing

"If two people come to me, and they contract the same disease, I will treat them differently according to their unique constitution."

“First of all, I will differentiate if the person is hot or cold type from the symptoms. In Chinese Medicine, the ‘cold’ symptoms of a cold body type include sneezing, runny nose with clear or white phlegm, itchy throat, coughing up clear or white mucus, and an achy body. This is called the ‘wind-cold’. On the other hand, a hot body type person who had a cold will be named as ‘wind-heat’ and will exhibit ‘hot’ symptoms which include sore throat, more fever than chills, thirst, nasal congestion with yellow phlegm, and coughing up yellow mucus. This will help me decide the choice of herbal medicine and treatment methods. If your symptoms are ‘wind-cold,’  you could drink hot tea with ginger, cinnamon, green onion and garlic. If your symptoms are ‘wind-heat,’ you could drink peppermint and lemon tea and eat cooling fruits, like oranges and other citrus fruits.”
