Enhance Spiritual, Mental and Physical Well-Being With a Pineal Gland Detox
October 8, 2013 |
by Carolanne Wright, Guest of Waking Times
A tiny gland in the center of the brain named the pineal may seem insignificant, but researchers have found it to be vital for physical, mental and, many believe, spiritual health. Through poor diet, exposure to toxins, stress and modern lifestyle choices, the pineal gland becomes hardened, calcified and shuts down. To awaken this gland from its slumber, detoxification is necessary using diet and herbs, sunlight and pure water.
An important pea-sized gland
Pinecone shaped, the size of a pea and resting in the center of the brain, the pineal gland is small but powerful. It secretes melatonin, which regulates sleep/wake cycles, and serotonin, a neurotransmitter that fosters happy and balanced states of mind. Not only crucial for a good nights rest, melatonin also slows aging and is a potent antioxidant. It helps to protect against electromagnetic pollution as well. Moreover, individuals have reported heightened feelings of empathy while supplementing with melatonin leading to more harmonious interpersonal relationships.
Scientists suspect that N, N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is also produced by the pineal gland. This is the substance that gives shamanic botanicals like Psychotria viridis its hallucinatory kick. Dr. Rick Strassman, author of DMT, The Spirit Molecule, believes that the pineal gland produces DMT during mystical experiences as well as at birth and death. DMT is also associated with lucid dreaming, peak experiences, creativity and the ability to visualize.
Why the pineal gland becomes sluggish
As a result of the aging process and exposure to toxins, the pineal gland begins to calcify. Sodium fluoride is the number one enemy of a healthy pineal gland. This toxin is lurking in the water supply, conventionally grown food and toothpaste. Dietary hormones, mercury, processed foods, caffeine, tobacco, alcohol and refined sugars cause calcification as well. Radiation fields, like those found with cell phones and wi-fi networks, are damaging too. Avoiding these hazards is the preliminary step to healing this gland. The second course of action involves removing existing calcification.
How to revive optimal function
According to the Decalcify Pineal Gland website, the following foods and supplements are helpful for detoxifying the pineal gland and restoring vitality:
1. Organic blue ice skate fish oil
3. Raw chocolate
4. Citric acid
6. Raw apple cider vinegar
7. Oregano oil and Neem extract
8. Activator X (vitamin K1/K2)
13. Distilled water
Holly Paige of Food for Consciousness, also offers a number of suggestions to help jump start the pineal gland. Happy Tea is one. A mixture of passion flower and St. Johns wort, the tea contains pinoline a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI). When MAOIs are freely circulating within the system, more naturally occurring DMT is available to the brain encouraging creative and bright mental states.
Another pineal revitalizing brew is ayahuasca. Small tastes of this preparation (one tablespoon per day) will help to elevate mood, creativity and inspiration. Ayahuasca can be made by boiling Banisteriopsis caapi and Psychotria viridis (chakruna) with orange juice for a few hours. In large doses, it can substantially alter perception and trigger visions. In small amounts, it refreshes the mind. Please note: Extracting DMT from any plant, including Psychotria viridis, is illegal in the United States.
Sunlight is also considered food for the pineal gland. At least 10 minutes of sunlight exposure is recommended each day. Meditation, chanting and pranayama breathing practices are beneficial to the pineal gland as well.

I wonder if this is the reason I had such a strong reaction to the sun-gazing practice the first day of Greatest K&L. Subsequent sessions really didn’t have an effect; it was just the first one. I wonder if the reaction was a pineal gland detox. . . SOctober 25, 2013 at 3:32 am #41299
yea an energy healer told me about Flouride in toothpaste, so I stopped using toothpaste with flouride, and still use only baby’s toothpaste which is what is available in the country I live… I don’t know if there’s a relation and there’s certainly other reasons, but soon after I stopped I started experiencing a spiritual awakening in consciousness, which may involve the pineal gland…….October 25, 2013 at 8:41 am #41301
There are actually conspiracy theorists that believe that the government is trying to control the people by “pineal suppression” by putting fluoride in the drinking water. I am a water engineer and believe there is a good reason why they started putting fluoride in our drinking water (not control), although I’m starting to sway in the other direction based on recent readings. I am not, however, in the conspiracy camp though…October 25, 2013 at 10:36 am #41303
Please, please, please watch the following video and get educated:
The video will highly the real issues at play here.
Adding fluoride to the drinking water is one of the biggest tragedies here in the US.
Fluoride is a poison, that is added to the drinking water, because it is a convenient way for the aluminum and phosphate industries to get rid of their toxic waste. At least most of Europe and other nations are smart and do not allow this poison to be added to their water. Even the “dental story” that it strengthens teeth and bones is false; it weakens them. I had tons of cavities growing up, and I eliminated all fluoride sources. I have not had a single cavity now in over 10 years.
It has MANY other harmful health effects as well:
Fluoride and aluminum have a high affinity for one another.
Guess what shows up in alarming amounts in Alzheimer’s patients’ brains?
Fluoride is also highly carcinogenic. Yet it is in our water, where we can’t even control the “dose” (drinking more water or showering more, means more fluoride).
It is my hope that more and more people can get educated about this, and we can eventually eliminate this poison from our drinking supply. Israel just recently was smart enough to end their country’s fluoridation program, and I’m hoping that eventually the US will catch on.
