Large Intestine Meridian In Your Personality

High Traits

The large intestine meridian is a great social leader. They are one of the four spiritual types and seek a path to an ideal world for themselves and all those who choose to follow them. Generally good-natured, these zealots will fight for what they believe is right and are extremely ambitious. Their ambition drives them to reform and perfect the world.

Low Traits

Their drive can lead them to obsession. High-ideals require perfection, and the large intestine meridian can tend to over-criticize.

Large Intestine Functions

Western Medicine

The large intestine is responsible for nutrient absorption and waste disposal. First, it absorbs water, salts, cellulose, and other nutrients from the food we eat and filters out toxins, pollutants, and viruses that have been ingested. It is home to digestive bacteria that are used to break down foods.

Eastern Medicine
