Learn about the role of the five elements in Chinese Cooking
Like the concept of yin and yang, the five elements theory is at the cornerstone of Chinese culture. What is the five elements theory? The chinese believe that we are surrounded by five energy fields : woods,fire, earth, metal and water. However the elements are not static: they are constantly moving and changing . (In fact,some scientiststhink the term "element" is misleading,and prefer to refer to the "five phases " or five forces."

once the chinese identified the five elements,they set about categorizing all phenomena with in the five categories. Everything,from a river to sounds to the organs in our bodies,can be described in terms of the five elements. How things are characterized depends on their induvidual qualities. For example, earth is associated with growth and nourishment, so the spleen,which monitors the blood-digesting debris and producing anti bodies when necessary-is categorized as an earth element.

Just as an imbalanced between yin and yang can produce destructive forces, keeping all elements in balance promotes harmony both in our surroundings and ourselves. Of course, balancing five elements is a little more complicated than achieving harmony between two opposing forces. According to chinese believe, each element acts upon two others,either giving birth to it or controlling it. for example, wood gives birth to fire and controls or suppressesearth. Similarly, fire gives birth to earth and controls metal. All the elements are constantly interacting with other elements-none stand alone.

gives birth to controlling
Wood - Fire Wood - Earth
Fire - Earth Earth- Water
Earth - Metal water - Fire
Metal - Water Fire - Metal
Water - Wood Metal - Wood

To give an example from nature, a plant ( wood )grows when it is given water. When burnt, wood gives birth to fire, and the burnt ashes subsequently return to the earth.
