People whose birthday falls between April 21 and May 21 are said to be born in the sun sign Taurus. They are warmhearted, loving, patient, reliable, persistent, determined, and placid. These people love to feel secure all the time. Their negative traits are that they are jealous, possessive, resentful, inflexible, and self-indulgent. They also tend to be very greedy sometimes. Taureans are generally dependable, steadfast, prudent, just, firm, and unshaken in the face of difficulties.
This sun sign governs the throat and neck, including the vocal chords, tonsils, and palate. They are more prone to throat infections, goiter, and respiratory disorders. They are also said to be at risk of suffering from abscesses and rheumatism. These individuals may have complaints in relation to their genitals, womb, liver, and kidneys. Since Taureans are very lazy, many of them may be prone to become obese.
Normally, people who are born under this sun sign are healthy and have a strong constitution. They do not get bedridden easily but once they fall sick, they are very slow to recover as they simply refuse to obey the health expert’s advice, because they do not trust anybody very easily. They are vulnerable to colds, coughs, sore throats, laryngitis, swollen glands, stiff necks, and minor injuries around the neck.
They may also suffer from gout and their love for food and drinks can lead to heart disease and other obesity-related problems. Their sluggish, indolent and inactive lifestyle makes them put on extra weight. For this reason, moderate exercises, along with a healthy diet that is low in carbohydrates and fats, are recommended for each and every Taurean to make their life problem-free as far as possible.
Taurus rules the thyroid gland and any malfunction of this gland directly affects the body’s metabolism. To keep the thyroid functioning at its best, Taureans should eat food with natural iodine, such as seafood. Other foods that will help them to stay healthy are eggs, liver, kidney beans, wheat germ, fresh fruit, and green salads. These people should consume adequate amounts of sodium, which is found naturally in sea salt, celery, and seaweed. For better maintenance of the throat, gargling with sea salt solution is recommended for the bull.
