The Thymus Gland and the Immune System (Latin, immunis-free, exempt) The Immune system is the system that helps protect the body from unwanted invading influences and unwanted microbial growths. It is our Defense system.

The Thymus Gland
The thymus gland is a temporary organ which grows full size in the first few years of life and then gradually disappears as puberty comes. This gland works with the lymph system of the body.
The gonads in males secrete testosterone and other hormones; the ovaries in females secrete the hormone estrogen. These two hormones become active at the time of puberty. The gonads play a large part in the growth of beards in boys and likewise, the ovaries cause the growth of breasts in girls, and they also maintain the reproductive function.
Our bodies live in a microbial bath; the air, the water, even our skins are alive with microorganisms that can invade and cause Infection. But the healthy body is rarely infected by unwanted harmful microrganisms, largely because of the work of the thymus gland.
The thymus directs the body's immunity, the system t hat tells "self"---the body's own cells-from "nonself"--- unwanted bacterial forms, viruses, fungi, proteins and polypeptides, even cancerous cells.
The thymus is a spongy, pink-gray gland located in the chest just behind the breastbone. It is large in a newborn child, continues to grow until puberty, then shrinks in adulthood.
While it is large the thymus produces the hormone thymosine, which activates the specialized T cells that move out into the spleen, the lymph nodes and the bone marrow. T cells are crucial to the complex task of recognizing and then destroying outside unwanted invaders and substances.
In adulthood, the thymus, although no longer producing T cells, appears to secrete hormones that keep the T cells working.
Deterioration of the immune system can lead to frequent, even fatal infections. In addition, some diseases are apparently due to autoimmunity--- that is, the immune system malfunctions, mistaking self for nonself and attacking the body's own tissues.
Autoimmunity is suspected in myasthenia gravis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma and systemic lupus erythematosus, as well as other serious diseases.
Immunity is a vast subject.
When it is healthy, the body can defend itself against most invading organisms that may cause infection or disease. If invading infectious organisms make it through our skin or are not killed by enzymes in our saliva or tears, this defense system goes into action. Pain, swelling, and fever may be the signs of the battle against unwanted microorganisms, and infection or the healing of a tissue as in inflammation after damage has been done.
How well the Thymus and the Immune System function depends upon several factors.
1. Constancy of good quality energy flow/life force to the cells of the Thymus and Immune System
2. Constancy of nervous impulse flow (electrical) supplying the cells that make up the Thymus and Immune System
3. Constancy of good quality nutrients (fuel) supplying the cells that make up the Thymus and Immune System
4. Constancy of blood and lymphatic flow, cleaning waste and removing abnormal microorganisms from the Thymus and Immune System cells, preventing infection developments.
5. High quality genetically inherited functional and structural pattern of the Thymus and Immune System
Normally this process runs smoothly and comfortably.
When dysfunction occurs due to stress or interruption in any of the above-mentioned factors, you may receive mild to severe symptom signals.
Warning Factors, Signs and Symptoms of Immune System and Thymus Dysfunction:
-seasonal flu-like symptoms
-fevers for no apparent reason
-slow recovery from colds and flu
-swollen lymph nodes
-Thymus and immune system problems may arise following severe mental or physical stress.
Clinical Considerations Prominent Clinical Signs and Symptoms:
1. Debilitating Diseases Myasthenia gravis, Muscular weakness, etc
2. Hyperthyroidism (Grave's Disease)
Possible Etiological Background:
It is known that changes occur in thymus tissue during periods of stress, atrophy being observable Autopsies on the healthy body---soldiers during World War II-revealed a much larger thymus gland than was considered normal by prior methods taken largely on diseased bodies. Thymocytes-the thymus cell - resemble lymphocytes. These may break down in great numbers during illness and provide mechanism for the immune reaction.. closely related to the allergic reaction.
Based on the individual constituents listed in the ingredients below, the therapeutic possibilities of this formula include:
Support for the resolution of the above conditions as described above, as well as uses in the following specific conditions:
Once consequence of aging is a slow breakdown of the immune system resulting in increased infections and possibly even cancer. Experimental studies in animals indicate that thymus extract can enhance the immune system by increasing the number of T cells.
A chronic condition of bacterial and viral infections may indicate that the immune system is working at less than full efficiency. Thymus tissue support can help restore immunological balance.
Animal studies demonstrate that thymus tissue extract can re-create immunity even after doses of radiation powerful enough to kill the all important lymphoid tissue. As a result, thymus nutritional support may be helpful for cancer patients receiving radiation therapy. The same evidence would also indicate that thymus nutritional support would prevent damage from even mild radiation exposure, such as dental x-rays and sunbathing.
As some say, it may be that we contract or develop cancer continually through our lives, but when we are young and the immune system is at its peak, cancer cells are recognized immediately and destroyed. In older people, by contrast, the immune system is less effective, and cancer is more likely to become established. Nutritional thymus support may be an important general preventive measure for all of us by supporting the normal needs for the health of the immune system.

For its nourishing support to the glandular system in general
1.May be taken away from meals or with meals, although not with hot foods (over 106 degrees)
2.Refrigerate after opening
3.Liquetrophics and other homeopathics should be taken 20 minutes apart
4.Liquetrophics may be taken at the same time with other liquetrophics Exception: Fatty Acid Liquetrophic and Thyroid Liquetrophic should not be taken at the same time with other homeopathics or Liquetrophics--- wait at least 20 minutes apart

CAUTION: Alcohol sensitivities: If a person is sensitive to alcohol, place dose in a glass (3 oz.) of warm (not hot) water. Allow one minute for the alcohol to evaporate.
General Homeopathic instructions for all homeopathics:
1.Take nothing by mouth 10-15 minutes prior to or following dosage . Exception: Liquetrophic homeopathics may be taken this way or with meals
2.No mint in any form, such as candy mints, mint toothpaste, mint mouthwash. Most fine healthfood Stores carry mint free toothpaste.
3.Avoid camphor, as in muscle and joint rubs, and moth ball fumes when taking homeopathics.
4.If dental drilling or trauma to mouth occurs, use only topically for 48 hours
5.Limit breathing of strong smells, such as paint thinner, eucalyptus, cigarette smoke (especially menthol)
6.Limit raw garlic, onions, strong spices to one hour away- before or after taking homeopathics
7.Place drops under tongue and hold for 10-30 seconds to allow for absorption
8.Keep homeopathics out of direct sunlight and xray
9.Homeopathics may generally be taken at the same time with other suggested homeopathics. Exception: Liquetrophics homeopathics should homeopathics not be taken at the same time with other
