I clarify and map out my client’s PATH TO WELLNESS through a four elements system.
The key to good health and wellbeing is how effective our life-force can flow through our bio-energetic systems. That is determined by how balanced our systems are functioning. A simple way to evaluate what is happening we can categorise how we are currently functioning and then correct any imbalances.
Each of the four elements embody different qualities and they display the four fundamental ways in which your life-force can express itself through you.
Our individual natural tendencies predominate in one of the four elements. But when they become too imbalanced, then dis-ease will result, because it inhibits the full expression of our life-force through our bio-energetic systems.
This quiz will help you understand your natural elemental expression state and what to do to get yourself in balance, taking you on the road to better health and well-being.
There are four sections – each with 7 questions. Add up the number of ‘yes’ answers you give for each one. The section with the most yes will give you your element below in the Answers.

In my work I have categorised the homeopathic remedies into the 4 elements:
Air is represented by gases and metals, Earth represented by poisons, gemstones, radiation and mineral, Water by plants and waters, Fire by animals, acids and animal products.
The remedies are prescribed to take away the resistance, held in our nervous system, to the natural flow of our life-force, so that your balance can be restored.
