Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - WELL BEING -

Space, air, fire, wa­ter and earth are the five el­e­ments from which ev­ery­thing in the uni­verse is con­structed, in­clud­ing the hu­man body. Th­ese el­e­ments com­bine in vary­ing amounts to form three dif­fer­ent meta­bolic types, or ‘doshas’: Vata (where air is prom­i­nent), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (earth). Th­ese in­flu­ence both per­son­al­ity and phys­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics.
