The element prithvi (earth) is a vital component of bodily tissues like bones, cartilage, skin, hair, nails, muscles and internal organs. This element builds and invigorates the tissues and increases vitality, strength and endurance. This element is associated with smell and hence it helps to overcome nasal disorders. Prithvi also reduces fire, so an overactive agni can be pacified.
