The BYG Method is rooted in the ancient systems of medicine from the East as well as modern nutritional science more familiar to people in the West. Using aspects from both ideologies, we can identify three key body “types” or elements that prevail when describing our body’s nervous system: Air, Earth and Fire.

All three of these elements work together to assist in how your nervous system functions, but there is typically one dominant element. For this reason, you may feel as though you can relate to more than one of the answers or that none of the choices quite fit. While taking the following assessment, please take an honest account of your life and choose the answer that most pertains to you. 

You can take this assessment as many times as you’d like. Once your mind type is revealed, please print or save the overview document for reference. Enjoy getting to know a little bit more about your BYG self!
