Episode 08: The Five Elements Part 01: Fire
Together with the theory of Yin-Yang, covered in our introductory episode, the theory of the Five Elements constitutes the basis of Chinese Medicine.
For episode one of this five-part series, we invite the expertise of TCM Dr Lee Smith to explore the fire element. We start the episode by discussing the overall concept of the Five Elements, to ensure we have our foundational knowledge up to scratch, before exploring the individual elements. Lee then covers what involves the fire element such as the colour, season, organs and emotions.
We also asked him to explain a typical “fire” person; loud, excited, passionate and always laughing, perhaps you’ll resonate?
