The people with excessive yang are susceptible to movement and irascibility. Therefore, they should enhance self-cultivation of morality and temper their willpower in daily life and cultivate good personality. They should control themselves consciously and overcome the emotional impulse rationally when encountered with things exasperating.

The people with excessive yang should abstain from pungent, hot-natured and dry-natured foods like hot pepper, ginger and Chinese green onion, eat less warm-natured and yang-natured foods like beef, dog meat, chicken and venison, eat more cool-natured fruits and vegetables such as banana, water melon, persimmon, bitter gourd, tomato and lotus root. They should abstain from excessive drinking.
