Decalcifying The Pineal Gland
What is the Pineal gland and how do we keep it healthy?
The pineal gland was known in ancient Kemet as the seat of the spirit (soul). The Kamau rulership's were people (Known as God Kings) products of a highly spiritual trained priesthood that ruled ancient Kemet (Egypt).The Kamau believed they could use the third eye as a route to a higher state of consciousness & awareness. In societies around the world since ancient times, the third eye has been conceptualized as a symbol of enlightenment, clairvoyance and out-of-body experience. Moreover, many ancient societies associated the third eye to one particular part of the human body: the pineal gland. The pineal gland is found in the brain, and takes its name from the pine cone, due to its distinctive cone-like shape. Its distinct shape was personified in symbolic form as the eye of Ra or Heru. Which, upon the royal crown was seen a cobra (symbolic of an activated pineal gland) demonstrating that a psychic powers were needed to govern and protect the nation, in order for the rulers to govern justly
The pineal gland is a unique organ that synthesizes melatonin as the signaling molecule of natural photoperiodic environment and as a potent neuronal protective antioxidant in short among other things it tells your body when to sleep or wake and regulates your body temperature also having an active pineal gland means you are less likely to get dementia or Alzheimer's disease. An intact and functional pineal gland is necessary for preserving optimal human health. Unfortunately, this gland is usually inactive in 80% of adult Caucasians over 40 and has the highest calcification rate among all organs and tissues of the human body. Pineal calcification jeopardizes melatonin’s synthetic capacity and is associated with a variety of neuronal diseases.
Preservation of pineal health can be achieved by retarding its premature calcification or even rejuvenating the calcified gland. Pineal gland is a unique organ which is localized in the geometric center of the human brain. Its size is individually variable and the average weight of pineal gland in humans is around 150 mg the size of a soybean. Pineal glands are present in all vertebrates. It appears that the sizes of pineal glands in vertebrates are somehow associated with survival in their particular environments and their geographical locations. The more harsh (colder) their habitat, the larger their pineal glands are.
Pineal gland calcification (PGC) is common among Western populations but is rare among African and Far Eastern or Dravidian Indian populations. Pineal gland calcification was also found to increase rapidly after the second decade of life, as 68.6% of individuals 50+ years of age exhibit some level of PGC. No significant correlations were found between age and the degree of pineal calcification or between age and the amount of uncalcified pineal tissue.So it is apparent healthy lifestyle choices that promote pineal health can improve a person's quality of life.Several physiological or pathological conditions indeed alter the morphology of the pineal glands. For example, the pineal gland of obese individuals is usually significantly smaller than that in a lean subject it is highly likely that this is due to dietary choices.The pineal volume is also significantly reduced in patients with primary insomnia compared to healthy controls and further studies are needed to clarify whether low pineal volume is the basis or a consequence of a functional sleep disorder . These observations indicate that the phenotype of the pineal gland may be changeable by health status or by environmental factors.
The human pineal gland has been recognized for more than 10,000 years. The pineal gland has a romantic history, from pharaonic Kemet, where it was equated with the eye of Horus. The Father of Medicine called “The Prince of Peace” Imhotep who lived during the reign of Pharaoh Netjerikhet (Djoser also spelled Zoser),the first to use stone architecture and second king of the 3rd dynasty (c. 2650–c. 2575 bce), believed the pineal gland to be the receptacle of innate animal memory. Kemetan’s regarded the pineal gland as the principal seat of the soul and the place in which all thoughts are formed.
Today we know that pineal gland dysfunction is related with the impaired neurogenesis (Healing and repair of the brain and central nervous system), leading to memory loss in Alzheimer's brain. Ultimately, pineal gland dysfunction, which reduces melatonin secretion, may be one of the crucial factors that causes impaired neurogenesis in AD. An additional biological function of pineal gland was not uncovered until 1958 that is, this gland is a secretory organ which mainly produces and releases a chemical, called melatonin, into the blood circulation and into the cerebrospinal fluid . In addition, it also produces some peptides and other methylated molecules,methylation helps us make neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, dopamine, adrenaline, norepinephrine and melatonin. A unique example of this is N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT or N,N-DMT) , a psychedelic. This chemical has been suggested to be exclusively generated by the pineal gland at birth, during dreaming, and/or near death to produce “out of body” experiences the crack epidemic is one way that this ability was attacked a large dose of concentrated cocaine like crack fools the body into believing it is dying thus releasing this chemical. so addicts spend their lives seeking the death experience thinking of it as a high they can attain without death. However. once that high is attained the function cuts off. as it is made to be a singular experience and cocaine as well as opioids destroy the pineal gland!
Recently, it was reported that pineal gland is an important organ to synthesize neurosteroids from cholesterol. These neurosteroids include testosterone. The pineal , until fairly recently, was seen to be of no value, and now is recognized as the “ principle gland” , from which, all other glandular activities “ trickle down”. The “spiritual” understanding referred to it as the third eye, which implies a sensitivity to light, and also the developing understanding of how light plays an enormous effect on our pathology.The pineal gland works with closely in conjunction with the core of the human brain which is the "locus coeruleus" which is a structure that is Black because it contains large amounts of (neuro) melanin which is essential for its operation as the control tower for neural information exchange.Information travels through melanin highway of light impulses more melanin equals higher reaction speed and efficiency.The locus coeruleus, which in Latin means "blue spot",it is composed of mostly medium-size neurons. Melanin granules inside the neurons contribute to its dark blue color. It is the principal site for brain synthesis of norepinephrine (noradrenaline).
Your pineal gland is part of the endocrine system in your brain, and as the ancient Kemetans believed it truly does play an important role in regulating almost every function in your body, including reproduction, executive function, growth, body temperature, blood pressure, sensory and motor activity, sleep, mood, immune function, appetite, and longevity. The greatest validation of the wisdom of ancient Africans was to recently discover that the pineal gland actually has the “ rods and cones” as part of the structure , light sensitive parts of our eyes. So in effect it essentially IS a third eye!
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:
1.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.
2.Eat foods high in chlorophyll. Dark, leafy greens Collards, Kale, Turnip Greens, Spinach, are a great source of chlorophyll. Wheatgrass, (Spirulina) 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 superfood supplements.
3.Reward yourself with chocolate. Raw cacao is said to stimulate and detoxify the pineal gland. This may be due to its high antioxidant content. Dark chocolate over 85% cacao is also great!
4.Take iodine. Fluoride interferes with iodine metabolism. Iodine chelates fluoride and heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and aluminum(meaning it binds to it so your body can evacuate it). 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 see what works best for you. Salt substitutes made from seaweed and kelp are healthy alternatives high in iodine content and are easy to add to your diet.
5.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.
6.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.
7.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. There are great recipes like golden milk or you can add it to chicken soup or morning coffee!
8.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.
9.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.
