The pineal gland is so essential to your overall well-being that it is sometimes referred to as the “seat of the soul”.
his hormone-producing organ is responsible for the production of melatonin, which regulates your body’s sleep and wake schedule, or circadian rhythm. When you think about how crucial getting proper sleep is for optimal health, it’s clear that you should be doing everything within your power to take care of your pineal gland.
Unfortunately, many people suffer from a calcified pineal gland. Of course, this gland isn’t supposed to calcify, but years of exposure to pesticides, additives in food, radiation, and other toxins can cause it to happen without you even realizing it.
Fluoride consumption can inhibit the gland’s ability to produce melatonin, not only disrupting the sleep cycle but also interfering with puberty in females. Studies have shown that fluoride deposits in the gland as people age and leads to calcification, with cadaver studies showing a positive correlation between pineal calcification and pineal fluoride.
Just what can happen if your pineal gland calcifies? According to medical literature, it has been associated with diseases such as Alzheimer’s, insomnia, Parkinson’s, Bipolar disorder, Schizophrenia, sleep disorders, hormone imbalances, circadian dysregulation and stroke.
That’s why it is so important to take steps to reduce your exposure to fluoride. Unfortunately, it’s found in so many sources in our everyday lives, from tap water and infant formula to toothpaste, Teflon, and foods and drinks made using municipal water.
If your area has fluoride in the tap water, boiling it won’t help matters. Instead, you’ll need to invest in a water filter that uses reverse osmosis. Watch out for coffee and soup made at restaurants as it was likely made using fluoridated water.
Even if you don’t have fluoride in your water, you’re still vulnerable. It’s also found in many drugs. Prozac, for example, whose chemical name is fluoxetine, is about 30 percent fluoride, and some believe it brings about its effects by essentially poisoning the pineal gland. In fact, animal studies have shown that mice who have had their pineal glands removed stop responding to Prozac.
