Ayurveda (with its origin in the Vedas) and Yoga are ancient life sciences of Indian origin. Ayurveda observes that nature's five elements, known as Panch-Tatva or Panch-Mahabhutas compose the human body. The Indian doctrine of five elements believes that the universe is composed of five elements, which are Water (Aap or Jal), Air (Vayu), Fire (Agni or Tej), Space or ether (Akash) and Earth (Prithvi). These elements are present in a balanced state in the universe. The seers believed that all Nature is part of the individual, since we are all created from, exist in and return to Nature. The five elements can be thought over as multidimensional and have macro and micro levels of existence in the human body. In the present study, the authors correlate Nature's five elements with the human body in terms of their role in human life and wellness
