Prakriti Vs Vikriti : Nature Vs Dis-ease

Our physical body is made up of five elements, namely Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. (just like everything else in the manifest universe). A unique combination of these elements in each person’s body determines that person’s Prakriti (Nature). And an imbalance in that unique combination causes Vikriti (dis-ease).

If Earth element is in imbalance, the Root Chakra becomes imbalanced. To embody more of this element, the body begins to hoard stuff (be it body mass, or goods, or money or body wastes), we begin to cling to people, things, land, property, and we develop diseases that need a General Physician. (unexplained general aches and pains) or Orthopeadic care (musculo-skeletal system)

If Water element is in imbalance, the Sacral Chakra becomes imbalanced. To embody more of this element, the body begins to hold water or emotions (also feel very thirsty). When this element is in excess, we cry (become emotional) at small things. And develop diseases that need a Urologist/ Sexologist/ Gynae.

If Fire element is in imbalance, the Solar Plexus Chakra becomes imbalanced. To embody more of this element, we seek warmth through love, care, food, Sun etc. Our digestive system goes for a six, and we develop diseases that need a Gastro-Enterologist. When this element is in excess, we become fiery, angry, irritated; and develop skin disorders (or diabetes).

If Air element is in imbalance, the Heart Chakra becomes imbalanced. To embody more of this element we seek change, movement, air, energies of the outdoors. We develop diseases that need a Cardiologist. When this element is in excess, it dries out the body.

If Space (that holds all other elements) is in imbalance, the Third Eye Chakra becomes imbalanced. To embody more Space, we look for more space in our life and in relationships. We develop diseases that need an Eye/ ENT specialist. When space is in excess, we become lonely/ isolated/ self-centered.

If the Life Giving Energy (that which enlivens the body) is in imbalance, the Crown Chakra becomes imbalanced. To embody more energy, we meditate, do pranayam, yoga, Reiki etc. The energy imbalance causes neurological/ mental disorders that need a psychiatrist/ psychologist/ counselor/ neurologist.
