(2)  Sthenic. Means active or strong. The sthenic body (figure 1-6B) is the

bones. The sthenic body type is the predominant type, with about half of all people
falling into this classification.

gallbladder situated high in the abdomen (figure 1-6c). About 35 percent of all people
fall into this classification.

and the gallbladder and stomach situated low in the abdomen. An extreme type, the
asthenic classification accounts for only about ten percent of all people (figure 1-6D).
