Heart meridian

Heart Meridian In Your Personality

High Traits

The heart meridians are the lovers. They are kind, warm-hearted, accepting, and chivalrous. One of the four physical types, their passion and sincerity are immediately obvious. They have a great capacity for love, unique imagination, and are enchanting and persuasive.

Low Traits

When not being themselves, heart meridians are passive and “out of it.” They appear lazy and forgetful without any internal drive.

Heart Functions

Western Medicine

The heart is a crucial part of your circulatory system as it is the pump that moves blood through our veins. Our blood carries oxygen, nutrients, and hormones throughout the body. It is also responsible for removing metabolic waste.

Eastern Medicine

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the heart houses the “Shen,” which is the equivalent to the mind. The heart controls and supports all mental activity. It also controls sweat, circulation, and blood vessels.
