Many diseases can, directly or indirectly, be traced back to a disorder of the immune system. Anergy, the lack of active immune cells, opens the door to germs. Allergy, the hyperactivity of the immune system, leads to serious breakdowns, mainly, because the body attacks and destroys itself. The use of thymus peptides, enzymes and factors can, in both cases, contribute to the regulation of the immune system.
The word "thymus" is derived from the ancient Greek "thymos" and refers to ancient ideas dealing with the function of the thymus. According to them, the thymos was the seat of the soul, volition, temperament, courage and emotions. The easiest way to stimulate the thymus is to gently beat the chest slightly above the breastbone. Gorillas show this behavior before a fight. This way they strengthen their courage and self-confidence.
