Thymus Meridian In Your Personality
Thymus energy fuels the world of health and fitness. Represented by the healer, this meridian understands the value of a health diet and exercise. They have an innate power to heal that draws them towards the fields of medicine, psychology, and holistic wellness.
The thymus understands the body and mind well, enough to manipulate just about anyone. When not being themselves, they are dissatisfied, demanding, and physically ill.
The thymus is extremely active during childhood. Our childhood defense mechanism provides adaptive and smart immune responses. As we approach adulthood, our immune system is fully functional and the thymus reduces in size and eventually becomes little more than residual fatty tissue.
In Traditional Chinese medicine, the thymus has connections to the immune system and digestive system. This is not a traditional meridian but treatment of the meridian is still essential for balance within the body.
