The pineal gland (the location of the Third Eye Chakra), is known as the ‘seat of soul’ by some cultures. In the modern world, fluoride is a common toxin, found in urban water supplies and even food. As a result, could flouride actually cause pineal gland calcification, turning it to stone?
Pineal Gland Calcification and Flouride
First published in 2001, research, demonstrated that with age, fluoride deposited in the pineal gland. The researchers dissected eleven elderly cadavers, and found high levels of flouride was associated with pineal gland calcification. Furthermore, this was not the first research to indicate that fluoride contributes to the calcification of soft tissue.
What is the Pineal Gland?
The pineal gland is a tiny, pea-sized, pine cone shaped gland. It is located near the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres. Likewise, it is not protected by the blood-brain-barrier, which may also explain why it is so sensitive to calcification from fluoride.
The pineal gland is sometimes called the “third eye”, because it is light sensitive. Furthermore, this “Third Eye” has cell features which resemble the human retina. The role of this light sensitive endocrine gland is to synchronize us with the natural light rhythms of the environment. Because it is sensitive to the natural rhythms of sunlight, the pineal gland produces the hormone melatonin. It actually converts the “happiness” hormone serotonin, into the sleep hormone melatonin. Consequently, melatonin is triggered by the absence of light, and plays a role in our sleep patterns and circadian rhythm.
A Unique Endocrine Gland
Technically, the pineal gland is simply neural tissue. Yet, the cells within the pineal gland possess characteristics resembling the photoreceptor cells in the eye.
The pineal gland has been of scientific interest for millenia. For example, in the 3rd century, Roman philosopher and physician Galen identified and described it. Also, the 16th century philosopher Decartes described the pineal gland as the “seat of the soul.”
Decartes was one of the few philosophers who had experience with anatomy and dissection. His observations were quite astute.
“My view is that this gland is the principal seat of the soul, and the place in which all our thoughts are formed. The reason I believe this is that I cannot find any part of the brain, except this, which is not double. Since we see only one thing with two eyes, and hear only one voice with two ears, and in short have never more than one thought at a time, it must necessarily be the case that the impressions which enter by the two eyes or by the two ears, and so on, unite with each other in some part of the body before being considered by the soul.
Now it is impossible to find any such place in the whole head except this gland; moreover it is situated in the most suitable possible place for this purpose, in the middle of all the concavities; and it is supported and surrounded by the little branches of the carotid arteries which bring the spirits into the brain.”
Calcium “Gravel” Within the Brain
Pineal gland calcification looks like gravel, and is composed of calcite (calcium carbonate). It can also be composed of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is similar to tooth dentin or bone.
Pineal gland calcification can be associated with certain disorders:
Fluoride As “Therapeutic”?
Antidepressant drugs like Prozac (generic name fluoxetine) are approximately 30% fluoride by weight. As a result, drugs like Prozac demonstrate how fluoride can affect the personality, or soul. By the way, in the old days, depression was poetically known as, “the “dark night of the soul.”
Modern medicine treats depressive disorders as a simple organic disorder of the brain. Prozac like drugs target serotonin reuptake. Fluoride may accomplish this intended “therapeutic effect” by affecting the function of the pineal gland. In fact, animal studies show that mice who have their pineal glands removed, no longer respond to serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
Perhaps these flouride based drugs also disconnect the patient from the psycho-spiritual conflicts they must normally balance, within their souls? If fluoride in our environment accelerates pineal calcification, could it result in dehumanizing, and flattening the emotional affect?
How Can We Stop Pineal Gland Calcification?
First and foremost, you must eliminate exposure to fluoride. Start by eliminating hidden forms of fluoride, such as in Teflon cookware. Also, filter your tap water with a filter designed to remove flouride. Use flouride free toothpastes and mouthwash. Read the ingredients on foods and beverages, particularly infant formula. Find alternatives to fluoride based drugs like Prozac. Finally, there is research on the value of magnesium and phytate in reducing pineal gland calcification.
