The Pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the brain of most vertebrates, the pineal gland produces melatonin, a serotonin-derived hormone which modulates sleep patterns in both circadian and seasonal cycles. The shape of the gland resembles a pine cone, and gives it its name
Detoxing Your Pineal Gland Detoxifying your pineal gland is not difficult. There are a number of holistic treatments you can try in addition to diet and lifestyle changes. Here are some of the ways you can detox your pineal gland and improve your health:
*Avoid fluoride.* Tap water and toothpaste are the two most common sources of fluoride exposure. Drink pure water to stay hydrated. Spring water is best. You can also try a water filter, but be sure to do your research, because not all water filtration systems filter out fluoride. Use a fluoride-free toothpaste. There are plenty of fluoride-free toothpastes on the market today.
*Clean up your diet.* Eat lots of organic fruits and vegetables and lean protein. You may also want to limit shellfish and tuna if you eat a lot of it, due to the mercury content. If you do eat a lot of fish, try adding cilantro to your diet. This helps to remove mercury. Be sure to limit alcohol or stop drinking altogether.
*Eat foods high in chlorophy.* Dark, leafy greens are a great source of chlorophyl. Wheatgrass, blue green algae, and chlorella are also great for detoxifying the pineal gland and especially help to rid the body of fluoride. You can also find these in green superfoods supplements.
*Reward yourself with chocolate.* Raw cacao is said to stimulate and detoxify the pineal gland. This may be due to its high antioxidant content.
*Take iodine.* Fluoride interferes with iodine metabolism. Iodine chelates fluoride and heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and aluminum. Supplementing with iodine can go a long way to detoxifying your pineal gland. Lugol’s 5% iodine solution is a good one to take. But do your research and see what works best for you. Seaweed and kelp are high in iodine content and are easy to add to your diet.
*Add a boric acid supplement.* Boric acid is the most common form of the trace mineral boron. Boric acid supplements are readily available. You can also get boron in foods such as avocados, bananas, beans, almonds, walnuts, chickpeas, and others.
*Drink chaga tea.* The chaga mushroom has been called the “king of mushrooms” as well as the “third eye activator,” and it certainly has many health benefits. In addition to helping to increase the production of melatonin in the pineal gland, chaga has been shown to support hormonal balance, act as an immunomodulator, heal digestive problems, and keep skin, hair, and nails looking good. Chaga contains high levels of the antioxidant superoxide dismutase (SOD), which has antiviral and anti-inflammatory benefits.
*Eat turmeric*. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, has neuroprotective benefits, and studies show that it can mitigate the effect of fluoride-induced neurotoxicity. You can add turmeric to food or take it as a supplement.
*Take activator X.* Activator X is a fat-soluble substance similar in structure to vitamin A. It helps the body absorb and use essential minerals and helps to expel calcium from the pineal gland. Grass-fed meat and raw milk are the primary sources of dietary activator X. Organ meats such as goose and chicken liver are also high in activator X. Consuming grass-fed butter or organic ghee as a source of activator X is also a great way to get this into your diet. There are also supplements such as X-Factor Butter Oil.
*Reduce exposure to EMFs.* While technically not a cause of calcification, EMFs have been shown to negatively affect the pineal gland by hindering its production of melatonin. Common sources are Wi-Fi routers, cell phones, microwaves, smart meters, and TV and computer screens.
