A Paht Chee Approach to Healthy Eating

The study of one’s Paht Chee chart can reveal many interesting secrets, not just about the level of your heaven luck – i.e. periods of your life that are fortunate, your inborn talents, your personality. It can also be used to gather information about the strength of your health as was described in last month’s issue. We know that each of the five elements stands one of the five Vital Organs of the human body. Missing elements or an excess of elements in our chart indicates the vital organ that we need to be aware of.


There is also the Yang and Yin elements of our Paht Chee chart. In an ideal scenario, we should have 4 or 6 yang elements in the chart. When there is excess of Yin elements, we need to modify out diet accordingly to compensate. Likewise, when we have an excess of Yang elements, we should consume more foods that are Yin in nature. Here we list foods that are Yang, and foods that are Yin.

As we can clearly see, her basket of elements is very unbalanced with missing Earth, a lack of Water and excessive Fire. In addition, her chart is totally missing Yang elements. What can we say about her chart? To begin with, the missing Earth indicates this would be someone who has problems with her spleen, which means that her natural immunity system can be weak. Furthermore, Earth also represents her stomach and cellular system. Missing Earth here can mean problems with cellular replication and cellular repair. A lack of Water means that her Kidney can be prone to infections, and since this is also affecting the thymus gland and lymph nodes, it further reduces her body’s natural defense mechanism.

For our body to stay healthy there is also need for balance between Fire and Water, and in her case, excessive Fire can mean possible high blood pressure and an imbalance between white and red blood cells. It is no wonder she has very strong worries of cancer, as this disease is very much related to cellular multiplication and our natural defense mechanism. In terms of her dietary habits, it is recommended that she avoids taking too much Yin foods, and focus her diet more on Yang foods, as this would help. She should also take supplements that support her kidneys, and drink more natural-based water such as plain water and coconut water. She should avoid drinking too much tea.

Kim Kardashian’s chart is missing Water, and she has an excess of Fire. Her Fire/Water balance is very poor and this indicates that her kidneys and natural cleansing and immunity are poor. Her blood and circulatory system could be unbalanced due to excessive Fire. This can be seen by her long term Psoriasis. A dietary recommendation for her is to take kidney tonics, as well as to up her intake of water. As for the balance of Yang and Yin, she would do well with a diet that leans more towards Yang, focusing more on green leafy vegetables, as the antioxidants contained will help her with her skin problem.
