Your Health and Five Element Theory

The best way to become familiar with Five Element Theory and its health-related relationships is to refer to the Five Element chart regularly to determine which element is associated with any symptom or discomfort you’re experiencing.

For example, if you are crying a lot, or feeling sad, referring to the Five Element chart will tell you that these are “Metal” characteristics, which indicate a potential Lung imbalance. Having this information enables you to start taking steps to balance your energy and protect your health.

For example, in the case of a Lung imbalance, some things you could do include:

  • Avoid eating spicy foods: And, as part of your diet and nutrition plan, find out about recipes that support your Lungs.
  • Practice Chi Kung exercises that strengthen and balance the Chi flowing to your Lungs.
  • Schedule an appointment to receive an acupuncture or acupressure treatment, along with a prescribed Chinese medical herb formula, to balance and strengthen the Chi (energy) in your Lungs and related organs.
  • As you become more familiar with Five Element patterns and relationships you’ll come to know, through personal experience, the value of this road map for health.
