Tapping for a Healthier Immune System

Tapping for a Healthier Immune System

This ancient technique stimulates the thymus gland, increasing the secretion of T-cells, loosening lung tissue toxins, and stimulating heart-energy. Find out the simple technique for a healthier immune system through tapping.

Use the second row of knuckles on the fist of one hand to rhythmically tap on the breastbone in the center of the chest, directly over the heart. Time the tapping to a beat of one heavy tap followed by two lighter taps: ONE, two, three; ONE, two, three; etc. This pattern specifically stimulates the thymus gland, which is located directly beneath the breastbone and whose secretions play a vital role in immune response.

Daily tapping on the thymus gradually increases the size of this important gland, which tends to shrink with age, and stimulates secretion of T-cells and other immune factors. This exercise also loosens impacted toxins from lung tissue and has a stimulating effect on the heart.
