Considering the importance of Mizaj, we designed a study to determine Mizaj of patients with functional constipation, referring to the Gastroenterology Clinic of Shariati Hospital, Isfahan, Iran, in December 2013 to June 2014... Their Mizaj was assessed using a reliable self-administered Mizaj questionnaire... The questionnaire included the general information and ten items based on Mizaj-related indices... Simple sums of scores were computed and a particular Mizaj was assigned to the patient... We found that 37.5% of patients with functional constipation had cold and dry Mizaj (Fig. 1)... People, who have cold and dry Mizaj appear to be more likely susceptible to constipation... Iranian traditional medicine aims to maintain individual’s health and prevent diseases, and to achieve it, individuals need to know their Mizaj and try to base their life style on that... According to traditional medicine, individuals with cold and dry Mizaj need to take more fluids (carrot and apple juice are specifically recommended in this group), and have more sleep than others, since calmness leads to higher moisture in the body while insomnia leads to waste of the moisture... Moreover, they need to limit consumption of beef, fish, canned food, frozen food and leftovers, fast food, and sour fruits like lime and grapefruit.
