For those of you who do not know what the pineal gland is, where have you been living all your life? Just kidding! For those familiar with the pineal gland, please move on to the following paragraph.
Not this paragraph, the next. The pineal gland is a pinecone shaped gland found in the brain. Scientifically and medically it is responsible for the production of melatonin, serotonin and much more . Metaphysically, well that is beyond the scope of this article, but here is a quick reference – according to French philosopher Rene Descartes. The pineal gland was the point where the body and soul met, or as he referred to it, “the seat of the soul.” . It is commonly referred to as the “third eye” and the “eye of Horus” by the Egyptians.
Etymology: Pineal Gland – Pinea is the Latin word for pinecone. The association is due to the shape of the pineal gland. It resembles a small pinecone which is located in the back of the brain and attached to the thalamus .
Calcification is a common affliction in our society and is brought on by our poor eating habits, overexposure to fluoride and mineral imbalances, such as excess calcium. The side effect of this leads to calcification of the pineal gland. It is shown that more than half of the world population, with some geographical exceptions, experience a calcification of their pineal gland by the age of 18, leading to endocrine disruption and hormonal issues.
Your best approach to decalcifying your pineal is the same approach as that of good health. Eat well, clean, eliminate processed foods and fluoride consumption (mostly found in water). Eating a raw and healthy diet will help with the decalcification process.
Seeing how we live in a world where patience is not a virtue, attention spans are at their lowest and many want everything yesterday – we have compiled a list of 4 supplements you can incorporate to expedite the process.
4 Supplements for a Healthy Pineal Gland
Our personal favourite green super foods are: Chlorella, spirulina, and wheatgrass. These foods are considered superfoods because they are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They have an incredible amount of chlorophyll, which is extremely beneficial for removing metal toxins that build up our organs. Chlorophyll is also great for the enhancement of our oxygen levels at the cellular level. This, in turn, helps repair damaged tissue and boost our immune system. The above works in concert to help detoxify the body, which in turn detoxifies the pineal gland.
The pineal gland’s worst enemy is fluoride, which generally comes from tap water or a visit to your dentist. Fluoride settles into the pineal gland, where iodine should reside and creates calcium build up. If you wonder what that looks like, think of your shower head and all the white buildup that blocks the water from passing through.
In our day, many if not all of us are iodine deficient. Iodine is essential to every organ of the body. This deficiency leaves the door open for fluoride to take the place of iodine, causing systemic havoc.
To the human body, fluoride is not only foreign and toxic but useless. The body takes this excess fluoride and stores it into a clump of calcium throughout your body, which happens to include the pineal gland. Increasing your intake of iodine will not only help you detox your pineal gland but your entire body as well. Sources of iodine include spinach, broccoli, seaweed, and fish. You can also supplement with iodine. It is always best to get your iodine from food sources, but if you can’t, we recommend nascent iodine due to its bioavailability.
Word of Caution: It is possible to take too much iodine, which can harm you. As always do your research and due diligence.
Oregano oil is a powerful antimicrobial herb. The idea here is that by supporting your immune system from pathogens, you will allow your immune system to function optimally. While your immune system is working correctly, an attack on your pineal gland will be less likely.
Word of caution: Do not take oregano oil for more than seven days.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Raw apple cider vinegar contains malic acid. Malic acid is what gives vinegar its distinct sour taste. This compound is a known chelator/metal detoxifier. Malic acid can extract aluminum and other dangerous metals. Apple cider vinegar is excellent for dissolving kidney stones, relieving gout, lowering blood pressure, and balancing glucose levels.
Please always dilute the apple cider vinegar before consuming as the acidity can be very harsh for some and can damage your tooth enamel.
