The name and logo of Elemental Health signify the foundation that traditional systems of healing have in the five elements of nature. In Tradional Chinese Medicine, the five elements that rule the body are fire, earth, water, metal, and wood. In Ayurvedic Medicine, which Core Synchronism and Polarity Therapy are inspired from, the elements are fire, earth, water, air, and ether. Although a few of the elements are different between the systems, the basic theory of both systems is the same, in that each element, or part of a person's health, must be addressed to achieve health and balance. Elemental balance is the core of natural, holistic health care.
