LEOS - HEALTH & DIET

Leo Rules : the spine, the back, and the heart. The heart is associated with warm emotions, the back with courage.

Health Habits : Leos have robust constitutions, supple spines, and good coordination. They are usually excellent dancers and athletes. Leos often push themselves so hard that they suffer strain from overexertion and nerves. Their upperback tires more easily than other parts of their bodies. They are also subject to pains and pressure around the heart. Leos are noted for their longevity.



Leo's ruler, the Sun, has always been associated with the heart, back, and spinal column. It also influences the spleen and the entire body's vitality. The sign of Leo is characterized by growth, vitality, and good health. As a rule, Leos live healthy lives, however, they must learn to slow down in later years to avoid the risk of heart attack.

Leo's cell salt is magnesium phosphate, which keeps the motor nerves in top functioning order and is also necessary to the formation of the skeletal structure.

Eat : Magnesium phosphate forms blood albumen and maintains the fluidity of the blood, and activates the digestive enzymes. Foods that contain this element so important to Leos are whole wheat and rye products, almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, figs, lemons, apples, peaches, coconut, rice, seafood, beets, asparagus, and egg yolk. Foods that aid the circulation and have blood-making properties include beef, lamb, poultry, liver, fresh fruit, salad greens, cheese, whole milk, and yogurt. Foods rich in iron, such as spinach, raisins, and dates, are recommended for Leo. Plums, pears, and oranges can help reduce heart strain.

Don't Eat :Time does catch up with them, and they must learn to eat correctly and cut down on fatty foods.
