FIND YOUR ELEMENT
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a 2,500 plus year-old system of healing, there are five basic constitutional types, based on the five Chinese elements: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. Balancing these elements is a key to maintaining health. To find out which element(s) you need to balance, look over the characteristics below. If the personality trait or health tendency currently or previously describes you, put a check in the box. Your score will be in bold at the bottom column.

FIND YOUR METAL CONSTITUTION
Metal is the stuff that swords and shields are made of, so it should be of little surprise that the guarded, aloof, socially-correct person has a lot of “metal” in them. If you’re a metal person, you may have a lot of unacknowledged grief and sadness inside, so you may have shielded yourself to avoid experiencing more emotional pain.

FIND YOUR WATER CONSTITUTION
Water symbolically represents fluidity, or the ability to “go with the flow.” Hence, if you’re person who is like water you will be yielding, flexible, and easy-going. You may also be timid, fearful and “wishy-washy” at times. This is why an excess of fear is thought to be harmful to the kidneys and bladder, the organs logically associated with the water element in Chinese medicine.

Wood is symbolic of life and the process of renewing life. In Chinese philosophy, it is associated with assertiveness, aggressiveness, strong drives and anger.

FIND YOUR FIRE CONSTITUTION
It's pretty easy to relate to what the element of fire symbolizes in the body. We talk about an excited person as being “all fired up” or a passionate person as being “hot” or “on fire.” Fire is the element of enthusiasm, drive, desire, and passion. If you are a person who is full of fire you will be lively, dynamic, outgoing and enthusiastic. When that fire is deficient, you’ll feel “burned out.”

FIND YOUR EARTH CONSTITUTION
Maybe you’re not the “fired-up” kind. Maybe you’re more “down to earth.” Earth symbolizes the nurturing mother energy, sympathetic, prone to worry and fret and maybe over-motherly to the point point it’s smothering sometimes. Earth people tend to try to do too much for others and wind up stressed as a result.
