The 5 Elements Theory helps us re-integrate ourselves back into the natural world. This page provides you with 5 elements theory chart templates. Read this article to establish a close relationship with nature.

The 5 Elements Theory - Definition

Originated in ancient China, the 5 Elements Theory is used to help people re-integrate themselves back into the natural world, thus understand our relationships with the seasons, their emotions, their health, and ultimately with themselves and their society. The five elements consist of Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood, corresponding respectively with emotions, tastes, flavors,Yin Yang organs and senses etc.

Although the theory has always been applied into traditional Chinese medical treatment, it is not a proven scientific theory. Generally speaking, stay rational toward the 5 Elements theory, and use it as a guide rather than a doctrine. Taking the theory into appropriate use, you will find a new world where you are closely linked to the nature and better understand who you are and how best to live in the world.
