Basis of all creations living and non living things are made up of five elements. The Five Elements encompass all that is needed to survive in this Creation. Without any one of the five, the universe would cease to exist.
In our Hindu Mythology the five elements are called as “Pancha Boodhangal”. Our Human body is made up of five elements. Our Siddhars have already talked about this “Andathil Ulladhey Pindathil Ulladhu”. Our Health mainly lies in balancing these five elements. When the Five Elements are in balance, we are able to function at our highest level as human beings.
The five-element system views the human body as a microcosm and universe as a macrocosm. Energy continuously flows from the Universe to Human body and is stored in the visceral organs and move through specific pathways or meridians in the body in a regular and cyclical fashion. When these energies become blocked, or deficient or excessive results in an imbalance which in turn leads to a disease.
