What Affects The Thymus Gland?
[Extracted from John Diamond’s book ‘Your Body Doesn’t Lie’]
“Besides being affected by stress and emotional states, the thymus is strongly influenced by an individual’s physical environment, social relationships, food, and posture.” (Diamond, M.D., pages 29, 30)
- Due to mental, emotional and/or spiritual factors:
“The emotional states that weaken the thymus are hate, envy, suspicion and fear. Their opposites, which activate the thymus, are benevolent love, faith, trust, courage and gratitude. These positive feelings are the deepest and most beautiful emotions there are.” (Diamond, M.d., page 46)
“I find that artificial foods, highly refined foods and processed foods usually cause you[r thymus] to test weak. On the other hand, organically grown natural foods will almost invariably increase the life energy. For example, if someone whose thymus tests weak eats a bite of an organically grown apple, he will then almost always test strong. (…) If you want to see for yourself how bad pesticides are, just spray some in the room and see how the previously strong thymus gland now tests weak.” (Diamond, M.D., page 109)
- Positive change to the thymus gland by stimulating the thymus gland:
“Do the thymus thump three or four times a day to activate your thymus and reduce the effects of stress.” (Diamond, M.D., page 124)
Listening to good music: “(…) I have suggested a number of techniques for enhancing thymus gland activity (…) Listen to revitalizing music.” (Diamond, M.D., page 124)
- Negative change to the thymus gland by:
Putting on sunglasses:
“Looking trhough any form of tinted glass for any length of time weakens the thymus gland and hence the life energy.” (Diamond, M.D., page 74)
Wearing certain clothes and using certain fabrics:
“I don’t know why, but synthetic fibres impair the activity of the thymus gland and thus reduce the life energy (…) I always recommend that clothing made only of 100 percent natural fiber be worn. (Diamond, M.D., page 76). “I have found that unless a hat is made of all-natural fiber, it will reduce the activity of the thymus gland.” (Diamond, M.D., page 75)
- Changes to the physical, mental, emotional and/or spiritual due to stress:
“We know that the thymus continues to secrete hormones and to ‘train’ and export T cells until late in life. After puberty it diminishes in size because it is no longer concerned with growth. Any further shrinkage is due to stress and other factors to be discussed in this book.” (Diamond, M.D., page 10)
THE THYMUS THUMP
Locate your thymus (see pictures in this article). Simply tap it lightly and not too fast, two or three times. You can do this with a closed fist. Don’t tap it too vigorously, don’t tap it too weakly; aim for a tingling sensation inside the chest (this is your thymus responding). Give this daily practice time; for some people it may take quite a while (think weeks or months) for it to noticeably start responding. Do the thymus thymp a few times a day or when feeling energetically imbalanced. Combine with resting your tongue where your front teeth meet the roof of your mouth. This helps restore the flow of bodily energy.
