From the energy of the earth to the sustaining breath of air, from the heat of fire to the nourishing force of water...
...the four elements are regarded as cornerstones that form the basis of different understandings, from religious traditions to philosophical theories.
The concept of those four fundamental forces dates back centuries to when the Ancient Greeks sought to explain the principles between visible phenomena and the natural world. The ancient belief was that living things required all four elements to sustain a healthy life. From mythical folklores spanning multiple civilizations to Hippocrates making medicinal use of environmental elements like the earth's dirt or sunlight, the elements have been foundational to theories of health and healing.
Last month, I had the pleasure of joining my friend Dr. John Lieurance for a full-day event in Sarasota, Florida for an event centered around the four elements called Elements of Vitality. The event gave participants the chance to hear from and connect with renowned professionals in the medical field, with presentations and breakout groups throughout the day.
Dr. Lieurance is a naturopathic physician, chiropractic neurologist, and all-around expert in medical biohacking who has been in private practice in Florida for 25 years. He's the chief scientific advisor of MitoZen Scientific and heads up Advanced Rejuvenation, a multi-disciplinary clinic focused on treating chronic diseases, regenerative medicine, functional neurology, functional medicine, and stem cell research. He is also the founder of Out of Box Doc, an alternative and regenerative medical center that treats injuries and diseases.
