According to the World Health Organization, 75% of people experience sub-health, which means you are not sick but may be tired and have trouble sleeping.  Perhaps you are putting on weight but unsure why and do not have a diagnosable illness. 

What is sub-health?

Sub-health is the intermediate state between being healthy and falling sick. If you are in a constant state of sub-health, your immunity may suffer, your organs will age faster and can lead to more serious ailments especially if you are experiencing sub-health for a long period of time.


Unique body constitution

In TCM, every individual has a unique body constitution, or body type, which changes over time. Your body constitution affects how you feel and behave, and how your body responds to causes of illness. Undesirable health conditions and illnesses arise when the body becomes imbalanced.

Know your body constitution for customised treatments

To show how one might reduce or avoid imbalances, explore our guide to nine different body constitutions in TCM. One thing to note: like many people, you may be a mixture of body constitutions. If you think this is the case, you can refer to the type that corresponds with your dominant symptoms.

Herbal soup, herbal tea and health products are customised according to individual body constitutions.
