From a scientific or spiritual perspective, the Pineal Gland is still one of the body's great mysteries. It's main function is to produce a hormone called Melatonin which acts as an anti-depressant and can regulate sleep function in humans. It also produces a neurotransmitter called Dimethyltryptamine which is a natural hallucinogen and causes dreams and mystic encounters during near death experiences. When extracted from other organisms and consumed by humans, DMT is said to put one in touch with higher spiritual beings. More information can be found on my previous post entitled The Pineal Gland.
Keeping your "Third Eye" functional is crucial to evolve mentally, spiritually and physically. It is a gateway into other dimensions of matter and spiritual being and is said to be the house of your soul/spirit. Many who practice meditation are familiar with the Chakra system which is a string of key energy points running from the top of the head (crown chakra) down to the end of the spine (base chakra). The Pineal Gland is the second chakra located in the middle of your forehead and is referred to as the "Third Eye Chakra". It is said that intuition and psychic abilities are a result of having an active and healthy third eye.
Many people are unfamiliar with the amazing potential this tiny gland in their brain has to offer and are unaware that much of what we consume is actually harmful to it. The pineal gland is subject to calcification where calcium accumulates around it and renders it virtually useless. A main cause of this calcification is the fact that Fluoride is readily absorbed by the pineal gland and in turn causes the gland to lose its function. In fact, the pineal gland contains a higher concentration of fluoride than any other part of the human body. The human body contains a natural amount of Calcium Fluoride at a rate around .1ppm. Calcium Fluoride is mainly beneficial to strengthen the structures of bones and teeth among other positive functions. What many people fail to realize is that the Fluoride that is added to public drinking water, commercial beverages and toothpastes is actually a substance that is called Sodium Fluoride which is extremely deadly to humans and is linked to many illnesses including depression, althzeimer's disease and is known to specifically target and disable the functions of the pineal gland and decrease brain function in general. It is also worthy to note that Sodium Fluoride is a common ingredient in household rat poison and is actually a bi-product of hazardous fertilizer production. It is classified as toxic by both inhalation and ingestion, yet is added to municipal water supplies in a large number of countries.
Studies show that any level of Fluoride that exceeds .5ppm is considered toxic to the human body. Most bottled waters will contain .1ppm which is the same amount found naturally to exist in the human body and is still significantly less than the amount that is added by municipalities (which exact levels vary). Distilled or Reverse Osmosis water would be the best choice if looking to avoid harmful fluoride.
There are also many ways to naturally extract the fluoride that has accumulated in your body with the simple balance of vitamins such as Vitamin C, Calcium, Vitamin D3 and Omega 3 that should be consumed on a daily basis. It could be as simple as starting your day with Eggs, a glass of Orange Juice and a Milk and avoiding the ingestion of fluoridated water or beverages (A large amount of commercial beverages are fluoridated without being posted on the ingredient or nutritional portion of the label).
Keeping fluoride away is only the beginning to "third eye health". A definite way to exercise your pineal gland is Meditation, something that is free of cost and does not have to be time consuming. Meditation is the only true way to be in control of one's self and has been practiced by many cultures for thousands of years. It is directly linked to spiritual encounters and experiences which are acquired though the release of DMT from the pineal gland.
Tests have shown that at least 20 minutes of exposure to natural sunlight a day increases activity in the pineal gland and is highly increased when the subject was not wearing a hat or blocking exposure in any way. Cosmic radiation has been proven to alter DNA and there are many links between the Pineal Gland, DNA and the year 2012. The Sun is essentially changing phases and ancient civilizations believed that this reflected a subsequent change in humanity... an "evolution".
There are some forms of alternative medicine that are said to also block harmful radiation received from electronic devices. Orgone Generators are used by thousands of people who are looking for a defense against EMF and RF waves which are a harmful bi-product of computers, televisions and basically any device that is plugged into a socket. By absorbing negative, dead, unnatural energy, the unique electromagnetic properties are able to transform and transmit positive Orgone energy which has scientifically proven healing powers to plants, animals and humans. Purple Tesla Plates are also a commonly overlooked defense against the negative energy that constantly bombards the pineal gland. It is essential to excercize the third eye as well as defend against harmful radiation and toxins that we consume unknowingly throughout our everyday lives and being aware of these problems is the first step to a successful solution.
