The small gland in the center of the brain, the pineal gland, at first glance, seems far less important than it really is. According to some experts, the pineal gland in the shape of a pine cone is tiny, but it is essential for our physical, mental, and, according to some experts, for our spiritual health. It controls the internal clock, regulates sleep, and increases our intuition. When the pineal gland weakens, the process of physical and psychological aging begins.
The pineal gland and the rhythm of waking sleep
The pineal gland converts serotonin produced in the brain during the day into melatonin during deep sleep.
Both hormones are so-called neurotransmitters. These are substances that function as information transmitters of connections in all nerve cells in the body and send electrical impulses from there. Serotonin is known as the hormone of happiness because it has a relaxing effect and improves mood.
Melatonin is a hormone that controls the rhythm of wakefulness and sleep. Melatonin production is controlled by the appearance of light on the eye’s retina, and its concentration increases in the dark. Melatonin promotes sleep and regulates sleep behavior.
Regeneration of damaged cells at night
Melatonin is essential for peaceful sleep because it also has powerful antioxidant potential, effectively reducing cell damage. According to studies, it should show a much greater effect as an antioxidant than, for example, a synthetic antioxidant DMSO, which is often used for therapeutic purposes.
Due to its antioxidant effect, DMSO is a particularly effective means of protection against electromagnetic radiation. This fact should then apply to melatonin as well.
The pineal gland and the aging process
When the pineal gland’s activity decreases, the melatonin level also automatically decreases is very interesting about the aging process. Decreasing melatonin levels accelerates the aging process and increases susceptibility to diseases of all kinds.
Scientists even suspect that decreased melatonin levels are associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Some studies have already shown positive results in treating Alzheimer’s disease by restoring the circadian rhythm with light therapy and taking melatonin.
Some people reported that they also had an increased sense of empathy due to taking melatonin, which positively affected personal relationships.
The pineal gland also produces hallucinogen
Scientists suspect that the pineal gland can produce dimethyltryptamine (DMT). This substance is found in hallucinogenic plants such as Psychotria Viridis. DMT allows our brain to create new thought structures and sensations.
It leads to a pronounced change in the visual experience. Dr. Rick Strassman, the author of the DMT book, The Spirit Molecule, believes that the pineal gland releases this hallucinogenic substance during mystical-spiritual rituals, as well as at birth and death.
The modern way of life leads to a reduction of the pineal gland
The pineal gland has evolved significantly over time. It has shrunk from about 3 centimeters to a few millimeters from its original size. One of the reasons for this is that we no longer follow our natural rhythm of life.
We stay awake with artificial light sources and thus turn night into day. Lack of sunlight and inadequate sleep significantly impair pineal function. But the high level of exposure of the body to toxins also seriously affects the pineal gland’s activity – it begins to calcify.
Fluoride – the biggest enemy of the pineal gland
Fluoride in table salt, in mineral water, in many conventionally grown and processed foods, as well as in toothpaste, poses a special danger to the pineal gland because fluoride accumulates in its tissues and eventually leads to their hardening.
But hormones, mercury, caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, and refined sugar can also cause the pineal gland’s calcification. Radiation fields, such as those around us in power lines, mobile phones, and internet networks, also have a devastating effect on this important gland. For the pineal gland to be supported in its function and reactivated, it is necessary to avoid the mentioned dangers as much as possible.
Tips for activating the pineal gland
Avoid fluoride constantly.
Detoxify your body by taking minerals with a strong ability to bind toxins (bentonite, zeolite, etc.). You can eliminate bound toxins through the intestines.
Liberate the liver with preparations such as burdock, dandelion root, curcumin, and bitter substances such as a bitter star or similar.
Clean the colon. This is a great measure to remove as many toxins as possible and effectively relieve the liver.
Use a chlorella algae dietary supplement. They are ideal for removing heavy metals.
Drink 2 to 2.5 liters of good spring water daily so that you can excrete many dissolved toxins through the kidneys.
Inhalation of neroli essential oil stimulates the function of the pineal gland.
If possible, go to the sun for 15 minutes every day because sunlight activates the pineal gland.
Sing as often as you can because the vibrations stimulate the pineal gland.
Breathe deeply and consciously during meditation. Concentrate on your forehead area that lies between the two eyes – the so-called third eye.
Consider these recommendations so that you can benefit from the many positive effects of the active pineal gland on physical and mental health for as long as possible.
