This is universal veracity that the five nature elements viz. sky, air, fire, water and earth are the prime purpose of human existence. Our constitutional and fundamental powers are based on these five basic elements called as Panchamahabhootas.
The five basic elements have the precise and vital part play in our life and wellbeing. This is because our body, mind and soul are collectively associated as well as affected by these elements.
We are nourished with food from the Earth, and eventually, our body returns to the earth. Water is life-sustaining nectar for us, which makes up more than 70% of our total body mass. Fire represents the body heat and radiant energy and exists in all metabolic and chemical actions. Air flows throughout the body, helps all biological functions and feeds every cell with oxygen. Space is ever-present in the background, providing the other elements with an opportunity to interact.
Imbalance in these Natural elements in one’s body shows up as signs of some disease.
