The Four Elements in the Human Body
In classical Greek science and medicine, the Four Elements are the basic constituents of all matter and significantly includes- The Human Body. The elemental composition of every substance in our body determines it’s particular nature and attributes, properties and actions thus providing the primary components of the body as a whole.
Each of the constituent parts of the human body is composed of the Four Elements, in varying proportions. The movement, of these Four Elements, is continually taking place, so that change is a continuous process within the human body. This change can either be cyclical, as in the cycle of intake and elimination of food, or progressive like the growth of a cancerous tumor.
