The pineal gland is one of the most important glands in the endocrine system. It is located in the epithalamus in the brain between both hemispheres, and is responsible for the production of melatonin, a hormone which modulates our sleep. In the past, people called it the “seat of the soul”, but nowadays we rarely know anything about it. Furthermore, our constant exposure to toxins and chemicals can suppress the highly important functions of the pineal gland.
As we already mentioned, melatonin is important for our circadian rhythm, but it also plays a part for the timing of puberty and our adolescent years, which makes it all the more important. Melatonin deficiency is a big problem that has been related to Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, bi-polar disorder, depression and insomnia, serious problems which can have a detrimental effect on your health.
The pineal gland has also been called “the third eye” and has a similar appearance to our eyes’ retina. Its function is pretty similar as well – once light enters our body through the retina, it travels directly to the pineal gland. Sunlight increases our body’s vitamin D levels, and vitamin D can boost the production of serotonin in the brain, the so-called happiness hormone. In ancient times, the gland was held in high regard – ancient Egyptians considered it a gateway to our soul (Ka). According to ancient texts, we have a physical and “light” body which need to be nourished and fed equally. This means that the sunlight doesn’t only make us happy – it affects our body in many other ways!
Nowadays, however, we are exposed to numerous toxins and chemicals which can suffocate the gland. We lead an unhealthy lifestyle and eat a poor diet full of harmful foods that suppress the work of this important gland and shrink it, which can have negative effects on our health.
The calcification of the pineal gland is a major health concern which needs to be addresses as soon as possible. The fluoride added to our water supply is highly dangerous for the gland, but there are many ways in which we can protect it from damage. You can get water filters that will remove the fluoride from the tap water and keep the pineal gland healthy. Fluoride can be found in commercial toothpaste as well, which is why you should ditch them and make your own coconut-oil based toothpaste at home. Charcoal toothpastes work just as great– they will keep your oral health in check and whiten your teeth better than any store-bought product. Plus, it won’t harm your pineal gland like the expensive toothpastes we use every day.
The increased calcification of our pineal gland is a well-known fact that should be ignored. We can introduce small changes in our lifestyle and diet that will keep the gland working. Besides changing your water filters and making your own toothpaste, you also need to avoid using microwaves and mobile phones often as they leak radiation that’s dangerous for the pineal gland. Yes, it can be tough living without your smartphone, but trust us – it will be worth it in the long run. Enjoy the sunlight more often and follow the aforementioned tips to protect your pineal gland and you’ll surely feel much better soon.
