Abstract: Based on the reasonable interpretation of complexity of human body, TCM constitutional theory is to summarize and abstract Four Basic Principles viz. the theory of physical process, of body-spirit syncretism, of environmental constraint and of genetic endowment. Regarded as the starting points and theoretical basis of studies in TCM constitution, the basic principles mentioned above impling the characteristic complexities of dissipation, integrity, openness, nonlinearity and emergence indicates that they exactly focus on the individual differences and individual diagnosis and treatment, which leads to enrich and improve the development of TCM.

Key words: TCM constitutional theory, vital process, body-spirit syncretism, environmental constraint, genetic endowment
