Learn About the Five Elements in Chinese Medicine On behalf of tvlesson.com, I am Dr. Justin Newman, doctor of organs and medicine with TheBanyanHolistic.com. Let’s talk a little bit about the five elements. Out of these unified field of energy, all things in nature manifest. The five elements in the Chinese Medical System are fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. They are symbolized in the five seasons as well, summer, that late summer, the rainy season, autumn, winter, and spring. These elements interconnect with one another. They support each other. They control each other. Our body, being a part of nature, manifest in terms of these five elements as well, as similar energy. Understanding how the organ systems are working together, how they support and control each other as part of the unified hall is essential to understanding Chinese medicine. Fire, it cleans the earth and let’s new things grow. Earth, has the metal ores in it. Metal cleans the water like an upper fore does. Water feeds the wood, and wood feeds the fire. This is how they support each other. The organs do this as well. They control each too. Metal cuts the wood. Wood grows on the earth to suppress. Earth, it holds the water like a riverbank will. Water, controls the fire, and fire can melt the metal. If there is an imbalance in the system, yu can sometimes see based on these five elements’ picture, where is the imbalance, why is there a lack of control or overcontrolled. Maybe the system is out of balance because although your system is perfectly designed, it’s having trouble coping with additional pressures that are put on it. And the elements are imbalancing or inflowing from one into the other, supporting and controlling each other as they do in nature. On behalf of tvlesson.com, this is Dr. Justin Newman. Thank you for watching.
