Five Element Framework

The Five Element Theory is a system that organizes all natural phenomena into five major groups or patterns in nature. Each of the five groups—Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water—include categories such as a season, direction, stage of growth and development, internal organ, body tissue, emotion, taste, color, sound, and much more.  In regards to organs and their relationship to health, each element is “responsible” for the functions of the body.  This means that if an organ is unhealthy, it is common to see all of its responsibilities suffer at the same time or in sequence.  For example, people are often siblings to others, employees to companies, parents to their children, and children to their parents.  If they get severely sick, all of those relationships will be impacted at the same time.

The liver and gallbladder are categorized into the Wood Element. It is associated with the spring season.
The heart and small intestine are grouped into the Fire Element. It is associated with the summer season.
The stomach and spleen are grouped into the Earth Element. It is associated with late summer season.
The lungs and large intestines are categorized into the Metal Element. This is associated with the Fall season.
The kidneys and urinary bladder are categorized into the Water Element. This is associated with the Winter season.

The Element's Five Major Organ systems

Get to know yourself


According to traditional Chinese medicine, the Liver is the organ that is most affected by excess stress/emotions. Express it, don’t hold it! Do things stress you easily? The liver system is also responsible for overall pains and aches in the body.


The heart system in Chinese medicine is very similar to the functions of the heart in Western medicine. However, the heart in Chinese medicine is also responsible for the mind. Any mental disorders can often be traced back to heart issues.


The spleen system in Chinese medicine is very different from the functions of the Spleen in Western medicine. Although the spleen has some blood related functions similar to Western medicine, it is the primary organ system responsible for digestion in Chinese medicine.


The lung system in Chinese medicine is similar to the Western medicine in that it is in charge of respiratory functions. However, the overall energy level of an individual is often related to the health of the lungs.


The kidney system is related to the water metabolism and excretion of liquid waste. However, in Chinese medicine, the kidneys is the main organ that sustains all the other organs and is also in charge of reproductive functions.
