Our Pineal Gland.

I must admit that I didn’t know how important our Pineal Gland is or what it does, and I’m sure many of my readers are in the same boat. It is also known as the pineal body, conarium or epiphysis cerebri. It is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces melatonin, a serotonin derived hormone, which affects the modulation of sleep patterns in both seasonal and circadian rhythms.
The famous philosopher Descartes described the pineal gland as the “principal seat of the soul.” You’ve probably heard of this gland being the “third eye,”  a mystical chakra point residing right in the middle of your eyebrows. It turns out these ideas aren’t too far off. The small, rice-sized, pinecone-shaped endocrine organ known as the pineal gland sits alone in the middle of the brain and at the same level as the eyes.

Following is an interesting article by Mark Patellyc, and some links for you to learn more about this subject. Many people with sleeping problems may find this interesting. You will also see the harmful role fluoride plays with this gland. Source: - Werner

Top 5 Foods for the Pineal Gland.

Calcification is an issue that occurs to everyone, but it’s increased in individuals that eat a poor diet. The problem is that overexposure to fluoride and phosphorus destabilizes your body’s mineral balance. This causes your pineal gland to calcify quickly. Nearly half of Americans experience pineal calcification by the age of 18! This disrupts your natural rhythms and hormones.

The best answer is to eliminate junk foods and limit your fluoride exposure. You need to get enough raw, healthy foods to help decalcify and support the pineal gland. Try these 5 foods for the best pineal gland health.

1. Chlorella
Chlorella, spirulina, and wheatgrass  are great foods packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These and other chlorophyll-dense superfoods remove metal toxins that build up in organs, increase oxygen levels, repair damaged tissue, and boost your immune system. The ability to remove toxic metals from organs aids the body in removing metal build-up. Plus, by boosting oxygen and immune function, it may help your body reverse pineal gland calcification.

2. Iodine
Fluoride from your tap water settles into the pineal gland. Iodine is essential to every organ of the body, but modern iodine deficiencies leave room for iodine’s elemental cousin, fluoride, to take its place. The human body has no use for fluoride so the body isolates it in a calcium husk. Increase your iodine intake and you’ll reduce the effect of fluoride on all of your organs. You can get it from organic dietary sources like spinach, broccoli, seaweed, and fish. You can also supplement with iodine, although I recommend nascent iodine for the best results.

3. Oregano Oil
Research supports oregano oil as a powerful tool against microbes and other harmful organisms. [1] By supporting immune function, your body will more successfully remove harmful organisms before it can attack tissue like the pineal gland. This reduces the chance of gland calcification. Plus, oregano oil cleanses your system so you’ll enjoy better health.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar

Buy raw apple cider vinegar as it contains malic acid. This chemical compound gives vinegar its sour taste and also acts as a metal detoxifier. Malic acid is well known for its ability to remove aluminum from the human body. [2] Additional health benefits include dissolving kidney stones, relieving gout, lowering blood pressure, and balancing glucose levels.
The easiest way to take raw apple cider vinegar is to mix a cup of water with a tablespoon or two of the vinegar and raw honey.

5. Beets or Beet Juice
Beets, characterized by their deep, dark red colour, contain boron. This element helps balance calcium intake and remove metals and other compounds, like fluoride. Beets are also loaded with B vitamins to help sustain energy and encourage cellular health.

One Final Thought
To restore your pineal gland, you first need to eliminate sources of fluoride and cut out junk foods, especially soda. If you don’t change this part of your diet, you won’t gain any ground by eating these five foods. Other foods like cilantro, garlic, lemon juice, and coconut oil may help you detox. It also may be worth considering a full body detox to reduce your body’s acidity and further cleanse metals and toxins.

Wow! What an interesting and informative posting, Werner. The fluoride link I found very disturbing as I and my family live on the Gold Coast where they put this toxic stuff in our drinking water.

Great information Werner. People need to become more aware of avoiding toxins in our environment if they want to live well into their senior years with all their faculties in tact. Unfortunately today we suffer from too much stress and are exposed to too much fluoride - both of which can severely deplete magnesium. Magnesium is our cell defender and helps mitochondria produce ATP for energy to fuel the electrical system. Without magnesium life has not 'spark'. It is essential for enzyme function and so every cell is dependent on magnesium for proper functioning. We need it to cleanse and detox and we need it to build new cells, heal and repair. We need it for heart rhythm and blood pressure. When magnesium is low calcium settles in the soft tissue and joints and we get harder and crunchier over time, ageing faster. This is why the pineal gland calcifies early. It is a sign of pollution and acidity of the cells. the pineal gland needs to vibrate like the ear drum. If it is too stiff it doesn't work properly, and so our melatonin production is affected. Melatonin is the most powerful antioxidant our body produces. That is why when you get a really good sleep you feel so refreshed. So get more magnesium into you and avoid fluoride like the plague and vaccines!

What an interesting posting, Werner! This is a subject I never knew anything about; nor did I know that I had such a thing in my brain. This is absolutely enlightening to me. Thank you, Werner, for sharing this. Also most interesting is Sandy Sanderson’s comment. Thank you Sandy!

I totally agree with the other comments - very interesting and informative.

What a pity our health authorities aren't open to this information. If they did their job properly they would have banned fluoridation long ago. But unfortunately these authorities are informed by those with vested interests, supported by the mainstream media - so most of the population has no idea of the facts about this toxic, ineffective 'health measure.'

Thank you very much, Werner. Very interesting, and I have really learnt a lot.
