According to Ayurveda, every thing in this universe is made up of five basic elements in different proportions. These five elements or panch bhutas are Earth (Prithvi), Water (Jal), Air (Vayu), Fire (Agni), Ether (Aakash). The food, the planets and every living and non-living thing are made up of these 5 elements. There is a fundamental harmony at the macrocosm level and microcosm level and our body is a very minute image of the universe. The only thing which differentiates living and non-living things is the Soul. Each element is a symbol representing specific qualities and processes. It is the qualities associated with an element that are present in us, not the element itself. To understand this concept better, let's look at each element individually.
Air (Vayu) is matter in its gaseous phase. It is movement, fluidity, formlessness. It can be compressed or rarefied. It can be a gentle breeze, or a force five gale. It manifests itself in the body as movement, pulsation, expansion, and contraction. Light, Dry, Subtle, Mobile, Transparent, Rough are the properties of Air. It is responsible for movement, dryness in the body. Any diet, exercise, medicine which has such properties will increase "Vata" or Air element in the body.
