TOPIC: THE PINEAL GLAND
This page came about because of recent conversations with others who are also asking questions about this gland which is the center of the head and responsible for so much that we still don't understand about ourselves.
I've written about it before, but I sure don't know enough to fix what it doesn't do that it should or to make it healthier.
Here are previous pages
This page is intended to focus on just the physical and health aspects, not the history and not about where it is hidden in religions icons thought I may share them as well.
Think pine cone.
SYSTEM: Endocrine (glandular)
SHAPE: Pine cone (oval) (see Title Page Pineal)
LOCATION: Reddish gray gland Center of the brain attached to the upper portion of the thalamus.
FUNCTION: In conjunction with the adrenal glands it effects skin pigmentation, helps with potassium and sodium levels in the body. It controls your mental stability, and mental and sexual growth. It is believed by the majority of those involved in the health sciences that many of the functions of the pineal gland have yet to be understood. It is believed by many to be the "seat of the soul" and involved with our spirituality. It controls aging, sleep habits and other glands, and controls calcium passing in and out of every cell.
Produces a hormone called Melatonin which helps slow down the process of aging and also seems to help with the immune system.
When the amount of light received through the retinas (part of the eye) decreases, the more melatonin should be secreted.
Effects the menstrual cycle by igniting the secretions of gonadotrophins (hormones that stimulates testes or ovaries).
Also inhibits the thyroid action.
Melanocyte is a cell that produces the enzyme which form the pigments that constitutes the color of skin and hair. Although not yet fully understood, there is a correlation between the action of the Melanocyte and the pineal gland.
KINESIOLOGY: On the top of the head at the crown chakra. (see Page Pineal 4)IRIDOLOGY: This small gland shows up in both eyes and must touch the autonomic nerve wreath. (Left eye: 9 minutes. Right eyes 51 minutes.) (See page Pineal 5)
REFLEXOLOGY: Both feet on the padded part of the big toe slightly towards the next toe. (see page Pineal 6)
HELPS TO IMPROVE FUNCTION: Exposure to sunlight and geomagnetic fields.
DETRIMENTAL TO ITS HEALTH: Tobacco, drugs, stress and Lack of Vitamin A
POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS/HEALTH CONDITIONS:
Enlargement of the Pineal can pinch off the canal that circulates fluid running from the brain to the spinal cord.
Abnormal growths such as tumors
Some mental illnesses
SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder - Which symptoms include: limiting social contact, loss of energy, decreased interest in sex, weight gain, over sleeping and withdrawal. Usually occurs in the winter.
Abnormal and/or rapid growth of sex glands.
Children acting backward.
Vitiligo (Skin pigment loss.)
MAIN Minerals: Manganese, Potassium and Sodium
MAIN Vitamins: None of which I am aware.
REASON FOR USE
|Wood Betony||Nourishes the Pineal, helps reverse Vitiligo (skin pigmentation loss)|
|Gotu Kola||Nourishes the whole brain and glands|
|Alfalfa sprouts||Energizes the pineal|
|Parsley||Energizes the pineal|
REASON FOR USE
|Melatonic||Melatonin and herbs which nourish the pineal (I don't suggest its continual use)|
REASON FOR USE
|None of which I am aware|
OTHER NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS
REASON FOR USE
|Wheat germ, olive oil, melons and pineapple juice||They energize the pineal|
|Lecithin||found in higher quantity in the pineal than any other part of the body|
AMINO ACIDS: L-Taurine, L-Ornithin, L-Arginine (take with L-Lysine) and L-Tryptophan
Violet is the primary color and is the highest vibration which effects the pineal gland. The bare eye (without glasses of any kind) should be exposed to indirect sunlight on a regular basis. Light reflected by the retina stimulates the pineal gland. CAUTION: Looking directly into the sun can damage the retina.
There seems to be a lot of research on ingesting Melatonin either synthetic or that extracted from a cow (bovine) pineal gland. I know from personal experience that animal hormones do not act exactly as a human hormone. Just ask anyone who has had labor induced by being injected with (Patocin - an Oxytocin substitute). You start labor but it is different than the labor that your own body would induce.
Another concern that I have is the fact that when you work for a body par, it becomes even lazier, such as laxatives for the bowel or synthroid for the thyroid. I believe there has to be a way to support the pineal to help it in its own production of melatonin. I would only suggest melatonin if symptoms of a weak pineal are unbearable and nutrition has not seemed to help.
Blind people, because of a lack of direct light stimulation to the brain are more susceptible to conditions caused by a weak adrenal.
All races have the same number of pigment cells but the amount used in the skin cells differs from person to person.
The hormone melatonin is now considered by many as an antioxidant (not by me though)
QUESTIONS TO ASK:
A yes answer indicates:
|Do you suffer from depression during cloudy days or in the winter?||Lacking the most nutritious element for the pineal gland. Sunlight.|

Pineal Gland Decalcification
by Scott Mowry">David Wilcock blog The pineal gland may well be one of the most vital and miraculous parts of the human body.Its location, within the exact center of the brain, is strategic for the number of essential fluids it secrets for maintaining good mental health such as melatonin, which allows one to sleep, and seratonin, which gives one a sense of well being or happiness.
Skate livers are very large and produce a very deep orange pigmented oil. I knew little of this fish species but was told by an old Russian fisherman that I needed to make this oil. He spoke broken English so the conversation on the subject was short and to the point.Since the Skate Liver oil introduction I have found many historical writings on the use of Skate liver oil during the 18th and 19th centuries. I am particularly intrigued by the comparison between Dr. Prices notes on the color of oils that he identified as rich in activator X and the skate liver oil's deep rich orange color. People who use the skate liver oil will defend the product as the one they need and will not give it up. Activatior X was discovered by Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS, a Cleveland dentist, who has been called "the Charles Darwin of Nutrition."
PINEAL GLAND RADIOGRAPH
DR. MERCOLA ON MELATONIN AND THE PINEAL GLAND
Dr. Joseph Mercola, D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy)
See Dr. Pinna’s comments below…
The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland located between the two
hemispheres of your brain. It is sometimes called the “third eye” due to its
resemblance to the human retina. While your pineal gland is only about the size
of a single grain of rice (5-8 mm), it performs several functions that are
extremely important to your body.
One main role of your pineal gland is to produce melatonin, the natural sleep hormone that plays a vital role in your normal sleep function. Melatonin is not only necessary for proper sleep however, it also regulates the onset of puberty and fights against harmful free radicals. When your pineal gland function is suppressed, melatonin production suffers and you are putting yourself at risk for a number of startling conditions including:
Alzheimer disease Circadian dysregulation Insomnia
Bipolar disease Hormone imbalances: low melatonin Low back pain
When Your Pineal Gland Stress Leads, Disease Follows
Any form of pineal gland stress is concerning due to its integral role in your body that has been studied for thousands of years. In the third century, a prominent Roman physician named Galen described the pineal gland as the “seat of the soul.”
This term was referenced once more by the prominent philosopher René Descartes (1596-1650), who went on to write about the pineal gland in depth. Adding to Galen’s thoughts on the gland, Descartes stated:
“My view is that this gland is the principal seat of the soul, and the place in which all our thoughts are formed.”
One form of pineal gland stress is known as pineal gland calcification — the cause of which may be shocking to you. Sodium fluoride, present in your drinking water and certain store-bought products, and other sources such as Prozac (fluoxetine), fluoroquinolone antibiotics and non-stick cookware could all be contributing to the alarming increase in pineal gland calcification.
I have been warning you about the toxic effects of fluoride for years, and during this time more and more scientists have begun to recognize the dangers. There are so many studies highlighting the toxic effects of fluoride on your body, particularly affecting brain function, yet remarkably, a majority of the tap water in the United States, as well as a few other countries, is still heavily fluoridated.
The connection between pineal gland calcification and fluoride intake may very well be one of the most vital pieces of information in the fight against water fluoridation. You see, up until the 1990′s, no research had ever been conducted on the impact of fluoride on the pineal gland. However, we now have major universities discovering that your pineal gland is a primary target of fluoride accumulation in your body.
Research Confirms Pineal Gland as a Major Fluoride Collector
Thanks to research first conducted by the University of Surrey in England in 1997, it is now known that the soft tissue of the adult pineal gland contains more fluoride than any other soft tissue in your body. In fact, the levels of pineal gland fluoride examined in the study were high enough to inhibit enzymes.
When your enzymes are damaged, it can lead to collagen breakdown, eczema, tissue damage, skin wrinkling, genetic damage, and immune suppression. It can also cause problems with your:
Pineal gland fluoride levels were measured at ~330 parts per million (ppm). The EPA currently sets the maximum allowed level of sodium fluoride in the drinking water at 4 ppm. This is nothing compared to the amount of fluoride found to be stored in the harder tissues of your pineal gland known as hyroxyapatite crystals. Fluoride levels observed in the hard tissue were found to be as high as 21,000 ppm. Hyroxyapatite crystals store more fluoride than any other hard tissue in your body, including teeth and bone.
After researchers concluded that the pineal gland was a major target for extreme fluoride accumulation in your body, they decided to conduct a series of experiments to determine if it was enough to impact the functioning of the gland, particularly melatonin production. Dr. Jennifer Luke from the University of Surrey in England led the researchers in performing the study.
The results were surprising even to the scientists on the research team. Animals treated with fluoride not only had lower levels of melatonin as expected, but female animals experienced an early onset of puberty. Due to the interference of melatonin production in the animals in response to the fluoride treatment, the hormonal triggers that are responsible for puberty were disturbed.
Dr. Luke summarized the findings:
“In conclusion, the human pineal gland contains the highest concentration of fluoride in the body. Fluoride is associated with depressed pineal melatonin synthesis by prepubertal gerbils and an accelerated onset of sexual maturation in the female gerbil. The results strengthen the hypothesis that the pineal has a role in the timing of the onset of puberty.”
The Early Puberty Connection
U.S. girls are reaching puberty at younger ages than ever before. In the 1990s, breast development — the first sign of puberty in girls — at age eight was considered an abnormal event that should be investigated by an endocrinologist. However, by 1999, following a 1997 study that found almost half of African Americans and 15 percent of whites had begun breast development by age eight, the Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society suggested changing what is viewed as “normal.”
Could pineal gland calcification be the cause of early puberty in young girls?
As mentioned earlier, the major study performed by the University of Surrey in England says absolutely YES. The connection between gland calcification and an early onset of puberty was even mentioned as a main point in the study’s summary by Dr. Luke.
It is important to remember that the groundbreaking study was conducted in 1997, before the 1999 research that brought to light the epidemic of early puberty. We have known all of this time about the correlation between fluoride exposure and early puberty, yet there has been little coverage of the subject!
The Explosion of Information on Pineal Gland Toxicity
Following the initial breakthroughs on the link between fluoride and pineal gland calcification, scientists began to examine the issue more closely. In 2003, the National Research Council (NRC) released its report: “Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA’s Standards.”
The NRC began working on the report in 2003 as requested by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in order to review the latest research on fluoride toxicity and assess the EPA’s current safe drinking water standards for fluoride. In 2006, the report was released with a summary that backed up the work of Dr. Luke and her research team who conducted the first experiment on the role fluoride plays in pineal gland calcification back in 1997. The summary was printed in the National Academies Press, Washington D.C. P221-22:
“The single animal study of pineal function indicates that fluoride exposure results in altered melatonin production and altered timing of sexual maturity… Recent information on the role of the pineal organ in humans suggests that any agent that affects pineal function could affect human health in a variety of ways, including effects on sexual maturation, calcium metabolism, parathyroid function, postmenopausal osteoporosis, cancer, and psychiatric disease.”
Mainstream Medical Community Still in the Dark about Fluoride
There are so many scientific studies showing the direct, toxic effects of fluoride on your body, it’s truly remarkable that it’s NOT considered a scientific consensus by now. It truly amazes me that the medical (and dental) communities are so stubbornly resistant to connect the dots when it comes to the skyrocketing increase of cognitive decline in adults (Alzheimer’s and various dementia’s), and behavioral issues in children (ADD, ADHD, depression and learning disabilities of all kinds).
In fact, there have been over 23 human studies and 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage. This includes such effects as:
Reduction in nicotinic acetylcholine receptors Damage to your hippocampus Formation of beta-amyloid plaques (the classic brain abnormality in Alzheimer’s disease)
Reduction in lipid content Damage to purkinje cells Exacerbation of lesions induced by iodine deficiency
Impaired antioxidant defense systems Increased uptake of aluminum Accumulation of fluoride in your pineal gland
What is perhaps most surprising is that the harmful effects of fluoride have
been known about by conventional medical organizations for over half a century.
The Journal of the American Medical Association also stated in their September
18, 1943 issue that fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons that change the
permeability of the cell membrane by certain enzymes.
And, an editorial published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, October 1, 1944, stated:
“Drinking water containing as little as 1.2 ppm fluoride will cause developmental disturbances. We cannot run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances. The potentialities for harm outweigh those for good.”
Yet, this element, or as some may call it, this caustic industrial chemical, is deliberately added to about two-thirds of U.S. public water supplies. Now that it has been established that fluoride is extremely toxic to the health of you and your family, what can be done to prevent exposure?
Limiting Exposure to Toxic Fluoride and Other Substances
As mentioned, fluoride currently contaminates nearly 65 percent of the U.S. public water supplies. Therefore, it is an extreme challenge to limit your exposure even inside the safety of your own home. For people living in areas with fluoridated tap water, fluoride is a part of every glass of water, every bath and shower, and every meal cooked using that water.
Fluoride is not the only toxic substance in your tap water, however.
While chlorine is right at the heart of this matter, there is an even larger threat to your health. It is important to understand that when chlorine interacts with organic matter found in your water, disinfection byproducts (DBPs) form. And these DBPs are far more toxic than the chlorine itself. In fact, DBPs are responsible for the vast majority of the toxic effects of chlorinated water… toxic effects that can potentially lead to…
Increased cancer, asthma, and skin irritation risks
Respiratory irritation and fatigue
Weakening of your immune system
The problem is that a hot steamy shower:
Triggers your skin pores to open, which in turn…
Spikes a high absorption rate of chlorine and other chemicals directly into your system and…
Helps create a ‘free pass’ of foreign chemicals into your body fluids and bloodstream – unlike drinking tap water where your digestive processes at least get a chance to filter out some of the harmful contaminants.
Taking Action Against Fluoride
In addition to protecting yourself and your family from toxic consumption of fluoride on a personal level, there is also a political battle over removing it from the water supply altogether.
Dr. Pinna says…
If the reader is over thirty he or she should not worry about his or her
pineal gland—it is probably calcified and
As an emergency physician I looked at thousands of skull x-rays. Near the upper back of the brain I would invariably see a calcified white dot: The Calcified (and dead) Pineal Gland.
Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia…
“The human pineal gland grows in size until about 1–2 years of age, remaining stable thereafter, although its weight increases gradually from puberty onwards. The abundant melatonin levels in children are believed to inhibit sexual development, and pineal tumors have been linked with precocious puberty. When puberty arrives, melatonin production is reduced. Calcification of the pineal gland is typical in adults.”
In other words the pineal gland is non-functioning in adults.
In my long years of medicine, during which I talked to thousands of other doctors, no doctor mentioned the Pineal Gland as a source of disease. If disease of the Pineal Gland exists, it must be extremely rare.
However, radiologists always mention the Pineal Gland in their report of a skull x-ray: “A calcified Pineal Gland is noted.”
The sale of Melatonin is quite brisk as a sleep aid and an anti-oxidant
