the five basic elements ayurveda

Everything in this universe, including human body is the product of different combinations of the five basic elements.
The concept of Panchmahabhutas (five elements) is defined scientifically in Ayurveda classics. The Panchmahabhutas serve as the foundation of all diagnosis treatment modalities in Ayurveda and has served as a most valuable theory for physicians to detect and treat illness of the body and mind successfully.
When the state of the body is not in its natural harmony, the body will try to maintain it’s equilibrium by eliminating excess elements and taking in others. All disorders of the body are manifested because of a disturbance in this balance of the body’s components.
