You are the Dry Type

People who are the Dry Type are a bit like a desert: supporting new growth can be difficult, but the desert will burst into full bloom in the right conditions.


The Dry Type

From a Chinese medicine perspective, we refer to the Dry Type as kidney “yin” deficiency. Yin describes the body’s functions that are cooling, nourishing, & dampening; without enough yin, the body gets hotter & dries out. Dry Types complain of feeling hot, especially at night, & can suffer from dry skin, constipation, night sweats, & vaginal dryness. Dry people’s symptoms may be due to an imbalance of reproductive hormones, especially low estrogen and progesterone levels.

Here is some advice for Dry Types to bring your body back into balance improve your fertility:

  • Take Nourish, our Herbal Formula for the Dry Type
  • Hydrate & Incorporate Fatty Acids
  • Avoid alcohol, sweets, greasy & spicy foods
  • Get more Iron (we love Floradix) & Take L-Carnitine
  • Reduce stress & stay active, but avoid excessive exercise
  • Consider using a BBT Thermometer to track your cycle
