Dyscrasia

Dyscrasia is a concept from ancient Macedonian medicine, meaning the imbalance of the four humours (bodily fluids): blood, black bile, yellow bile, and phlegm (water).

The idea of Humourism was adapted by Greek and Roman physicians who believed that too little or too much of any of the four humours influenced a person's temperament, physique, and health/well-being.
