Winter Gland - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


In Winter, the hands of your body clock are pointing to your Thymus Gland. It is located behind your sternum in the middle of your chest and acts as your "breastplate" of protection. Until recently it was thought that the Thymus gland was of little use in the adult body. However, due in large part to AIDS research there is a renewed interest in this gland and its role in our lives and health. The Thymus gland monitors your immune system.

A simple and effective technique to balance your Thymus gland is to gently and firmly pat your chest. Note that it is important to pat or tap your chest gently and firmly, not to slap or thump it as this will achieve the reverse effect. No doubt at some time in your life you have been told to give yourself a pat on the back, which is literally difficult to do. Now instead, give yourself a pat on the chest. This is easier to do and will achieve the desired result of self acknowledgment as well as boosting your immune system, the two being inextricably linked .
