5 elements

      The five elements must remain in harmony for optimun health. We cannot improve our health by focusing on only one organ exclusively.The kidneys-water which helps  the liver-wood to grow.  Wood-liver which provides fuel for the heart-fire.  Heart-fire which creates ashes  and nutrients that are necessary for a good and healthy earth (spleen). Earth, which produces gold and metal, the element and energy of the lungs.   Metal-lung which becomes a molten liquid, feeding the kidneys. The organs, thus form a circle of mutual interdependence in five elements Qigong.
