The five elements are the five building blocks of Chinese medicine. The elements are made up of -

  • Water
  • Earth
  • Fire
  • Metal
  • Wood

The following are diet plans based on weak water and or weak earth elements in the body.

Weak Earth Element

This is detected when someone tends to worry a great deal and focuses too much on work. They tend to be vulnerable to digestive problems and may gain weight easily while finding it difficult to lose it. They tend to have excess mucus or have cloudy thinking or lack of clarity. They may crave sweets and have issues such as fatigue, gas, bloating, food allergies, eating disorders, diarrhea, heartburn and canker sores. In women, they may also have menstrual problems from having too light or heavy periods.

Weak Earth Element Diet Plan & Recipes

The best way to change your diet is not to drop all of your favorite "bad-for you" foods all at once. Instead, let your body get used to gradual changes. This is a lifestyle change not a diet. Begin your with the following changes-


One teaspoon of flaxseed oil (use gel caps or the pure oil.)


Have 1-2 teaspoons of bee pollen as a sweet energy boost

Start with one cup a day of tea- Drink Chinese slimming teas or green tea with no sweeteners. These help to balance blood sugar, and are mildly diuretic and laxative, which eliminates toxins. Their bitter taste reduces cravings for sweet and high fat foods. They continue little or no caffeine.

Names of Chinese slimming teas-

  • Bojenmi Tea
  • Well-Known Tea

After a week of these additions to your diet, begin substituting a meal with a healthy one, and so on until over a month your entire diet has changed.
