How to Detoxify your Pineal Gland

By Azriel ReShel on Thursday April 14th, 2016

Unlock the Gateway to Higher Consciousness in Your Brain

A tiny pea-sized gland shaped like a pinecone, residing in the centre of our brains, may hold the secrets to spiritual wisdom, inspiration and psychic awareness. The Pineal Gland is vital for physical, mental and spiritual health, while also being a gateway to higher consciousness.

It is widely believed that the pineal gland is key to our spiritual awakening and psychic abilities.Traditionally, the pineal gland is said to be the third eye chakra, otherwise known as Ajna or the eyebrow chakra, which is set back and between our two physical eyes.

So what is the pineal gland?

It is an endocrine gland sitting alone in the brain, level with our eyes. The pineal gland produces melatonin and regulates our daily and seasonal circadian rhythms. Melatonin is the chemical in charge of our sleep cycles and the quality of our sleep, and it also regulates the onset of puberty. Melatonin is responsible for fighting against free radicals. A decline in melatonin triggers the ageing process in the body. Serotonin, the neurotransmitter or happy chemical responsible for our mood, is transformed into melatonin only in the pineal gland. The pineal plays a major role in hibernation of animals, in metabolism and seasonal breeding.

Our Third Eye or our First Eye?

Scientific evidence supports the possibility that our third eye, or pineal, was once our first eye. Under the microscope, the pineal is made up of cells that have the same features as the rod-shaped light sensitive cells found in our retinas. The pineal gland receives signals that travel down the optic nerves. It seems the primitive third eye functioned as a sight organ before our current set of eyes. The pineal gland gives a perception of the world around us through our senses. It controls the action of light upon our body and is located beneath the cerebral cortex where the two hemispheres of the brain join. This is the place where the brain regulates consciousness and interprets the body’s sensory and motor functions.

According to theosophy, the pineal is an important psychophysiological centre or chakra and is the source of clairvoyance and intuition. It has also been described as “the principal seat of the soul,” and the portal to the higher dimensions, as the pineal, or third eye, provides perception beyond ordinary sight. Interestingly, the pineal gland has been linked to the production of the psychedelic DMT or dimethyltryptamine.

DMT is the most powerful psychedelic substance known to man. Scientific experiments have discovered DMT in the pineal gland of rats. It is believed that DMT is released during near death experiences, and this may explain the enhanced spiritual connection and awakening that takes place. DMT brings higher awareness and wisdom. The pineal and third eye, when awakened enable, us to open up to have visions, clairvoyance and other psychic gifts. It is vital to our spiritual growth and consciousness to keep our pineal gland clear and free of toxic substances. As we become more toxic and the pineal gland calcifies further, we lose our spiritual connection to higher energies and our oneness with all that is.

Why is the Pineal Gland blocked?

Through a poor diet, exposure to toxins in the environment and food we eat, stress and modern life, the pineal gland gets hardened, then calcified and eventually shuts down. It is also suppressed by electromagnetic fields (EMF) released by mobile phones and other wireless devices.The Pineal gland is especially sensitive to fluoride in the water. Fluoride, and other chemical substances like chlorine, are bad for the pineal as they deposit on tissues rich in calcium, such as the pineal. The gland calcifies when it encounters fluoride – these calcifications are known as corpora arenacea, or brain sand, and are made up of calcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, magnesium phosphate and ammonium phosphate.

Chemicals that are harmful to the pineal gland can come from everyday activities, for example, Fluoride is found in most toothpastes and tap water. Likewise, food laden with pesticides, preservatives and chemicals causes the pineal gland to become sluggish and lose its vitality and power. It is also believed that calcium supplements are detrimental to our health and that it is it better to gain calcium through our diet and calcium rich foods, such as almonds, leafy green vegetables and tahini.

It’s important to detox the body in order to decalcify the Pineal Gland. In today’s world, we are assaulted by an enormous range of chemicals, in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. Our poor diets and contemporary lifestyle are the main causes of decalcification. The Pineal Gland is very sensitive to chemicals and it is said that due to modern lifestyles, the pineal has shrunk. Indian Masters of the Vedic times were believed to have a pineal gland the size of a lemon. Today, our pineal gland is the size of small seed or pea. The primary goal of decalcifying your pineal gland is so that you can begin the process of pineal gland activation and awaken your third Eye.

Detoxification

Detoxification is a two part process; firstly ensuring that no further calcification takes place, while at the same time, reversing the calcification that has already occurred. This may require some lifestyle changes, the most important one being to drink pure water. Other lifestyle changes are to limit or stop the intake of sugar, caffeine, tobacco and alcohol, and to eat organic, natural whole food that is not laced with pesticides and genetic modifications.

Some ways to detoxify the pineal gland are by including chlorella, spirulina and wheatgrass in your diet. Oregano oil is also a wonderful way of detoxifying and encouraging pineal gland activation and clarity. Raw apple cider vinegar and pure cacao have a great effect on the pineal too.

Once we have cleared the pineal gland of toxins we can work on awakening the third eye. A simple way of activating the third eye is through meditation, especially meditating with your attention on the third eye area, which can be done in yoga practice and seated meditation.

Sun gazing was a potent way in ancient times to activate the pineal and third eye. Great Himalayan Masters practiced Surya Yoga by gazing at the rising sun with a silver coin placed between the eyebrows on the forehead. At dawn, the earth’s magnetic field is charged, making this the best time to meditate as it stimulates the pineal gland. Apparently, at dawn, the negatively charged pineal and the positively charged pituitary come together to create a “light in the head.”

At dawn the earth’s magnetic field is charged and it is the best time to meditate at this time, as it stimulates the pineal gland.Dawn is the best time to meditate as it stimulates the pineal gland.

Here are some other ways to Activate the Pineal Gland:

  1. Spend time in the sunlight every day
  2. Sleep in complete Darkness
  3. Commit to a  regular meditation practice as this will develop and enhance your pineal gland
  4. Yogic practices are very potent methods for awakening the Pineal Gland. Inversions are particularly helpful as they increase blood flow to the pineal while you are upside down. The practice of Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep meditation also helps to awaken the pineal gland.

  1. Thank you for that informative and well written article. What about adding Curcuma / Tumeric to the diet? I heard this also helps with decalcification of the pineal. Another question I have is concerning smoking Cannabis. From different people who work with Ayahuasca I heard that it shuts down the activity of the pineal and somehow disconnects the lower from the upper chakras. Who knows more about this connection?

    • Hi, digested Turmeric does not help with pineal gland calcification, it is just good to detoxify and clean our digestive system, amongst other things. HOWEVER, turmeric can be the most effective and fastest way to decalcify the gland…by diluting the raw red powder with little water, and directly placing a little ball of the paste on the skin itself (just above middle of eyebrows) If you’re a middle aged adult do it for 6-7 weeks. No toothpastes containing fluoride , and no tap water a Must too. About cannabis, I’m not too sure about that, perhaps they were thinking of pesticide ridden, hormone and steroid injected, rat poison sprayed and genetically modified potent commercial Skunk …..but not the organically produced naturally grown stuff.

      • Rubbing Tumeric on your forehead will in fact help to detox your gland. Ingesting it will not, however it will help gastro issues and help with digestion. your skin is very good at absorbing. this is why even swimming or bathing in Chlorinated and Fluoridated water can damage as well.

      • What a joke. Your mortician is the closest point to truth I’ve read so far! Lol
        All of these claims, no evidence to support truth. What are we selling? A spiritual truth around my third eye ? I agree with the points of this article around the role of the pineal gland and it’s role in our body with hormonal regulation of circadian rythm and sleep. I also agree with the fact that the pineal gland calcified with age. Most of the rest of the article is a wordsmith steeped in bunk. Third eye my asshole.

  2. Yep, I’ve been working on this for awhile. Started with my water and diet. Also using meditation. Sometimes I am able to see full color images with my first eye but it doesn’t happen often and I can;t control it yet.I’m taking the slow but steady approach.

  3. Great explanation. The process defined here is outer mainly. However it will help by cleaning up thoughts all time and that will change the emotions. These are the one which helps like love, happy , gratitude form inner or from heart.

    • Then consciously bless it – get a tub and grow some – at least get some live food in you even just parsley. join the local Community garden. Transform a piece of ‘public’ grass.

    • Have you tried the Safeway Organics line? Completely reasonable and even less expensive than Franken-food when things are on sale (which is often). Non-GMO and completely delicious. (No, I do not work or know anyone who works for Safeway.)

  4. WHAT DO YOU DO FOR MOTIVATION, I LIKE THIS SORT OF STUFF BUT SOON AFTER I GET STARTED THE DRIVE FIZZLES AND I’M BACK TO WHERE I STARTED.

    • YOU”RE ON A GOOD TRACK TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF …SHOUTING DOES HELP A LOT !
      Jokes apart, try mixing it with music? Especially good electronic music, its definitely better than shouting anyway. Ambient music for meditation , chilled acid ( luke vibert style) and some Techno ( Jeff mills or Derexya will do nicely ) can help you achieve that state , try it with some pleasurable activity u may like doing ? such as jogging or working out indoor, sex etc. LOL. or invest some money in buying something like a prophet rev2 synthesiser , for some lovely spaced out / out of this world sounds u can play thru the keyboard and actually manually filter up&down live as u pl ay them ….trust me, its fun and stimulating.

  5. This is the first year I’ve done a complete candida cleanse for a month, which goes along completely with this pineal cleanse, thow on a daily basis. My home filtered water goes with me everywhere, in with I add Vit C powder and a bit of stevia. I eat as clean as my budget allows, about 80/20. Little to no added sugar, and sparse sugared foods. No GMO’s.
    I sense that my intuition has increased over the years. Now, I just “know” things more that in my past. Could be that age wisens us, but some topics were never studied!
    I’ll continue cooking at home more to ensure that I KNOW what I eat.

  6. I am on psychiatric medications and wonder if there is any point in having purified water when I am daily filling my self with poison

  7. UPDATED #2 — METHODS OF HEALING YOUR PINEAL GLAND AND ALSO RECOVERING YOUR MEMORY BECAUSE OF ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE:

    THERE ARE TWO THINGS TO ADD HERE FOR YOUR RECOVERY CONCERNING ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE.
    “COCONUT OIL AND EGG YOLKS”

    INCLUDE 1/4 CUP OF COCONUT OIL IN YOUR DIET, SLOWLY INCREASE IT TO 1/2 CUP A DAY. THIS WILL RECONNECT THE BROKEN OR DISCONNECTED SYNAPSIS IN YOUR BRAIN THAT CAUSES ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE.
    START INCLUDING RAW EGG YOLKS IN YOUR DIET. YOUR BRAIN IS MADE OF 90 PERCENT OF CHOLESTEROL. WITHOUT FEEDING YOUR BRAIN CHOLESTEROL YOUR BRAIN AND MEMORY WILL DECREASE.
    START WITH 3 RAW AND UNCOOKED EGG YOLKS. THE EGG WHITES ARE OPTIONAL TO START WITH.
    SLOWLY INCREASE THE EGG YOLKS TO 9 OR 12 RAW EGG YOLKS A DAY.
    IF YOU HAVE ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION – YOU WILL HAVE BETTER ERECTIONS IN THE MORNING.
    IF YOU COOK THE EGG WHITES – ONLY USE UNSALTED BUTTER.
    COOKING WITH COCONUT OIL, INSTEAD OF GMO OILS SUCH AS SOY, CANOLA AND COTTONSEED OIL WILL SPEED UP YOUR RECOVERY!!!
    METHODS OF HEALING ONLY YOUR PINEAL GLAND:
    1. TAKE EDTA AT NIGHT – ONE TO SIX PILLS AT BEDTIME.
    2. TAKE NATURAL IODINE AT NOON – 1 TO 5 DROPS IN ANY LIQUID OR IN MOUTH.
    IODINE WILL DISLODGE FLUORIDES FROM THE PINEAL GLAND, BUT WILL NOT REMOVE IT FROM YOUR BODY. EDTA AND CHLORELLA WILL.
    3. TAKE I TO 3 PILLS OF 1000MG OF CHLORELLA ONE HOUR BEFORE FOODS.
    4. TAKE FOOD BASED NUTRIENTS THAT CONTAIN MULTI-MINERALS ONE TO TWO HOURS AFTER MEALS.
    EDTA WILL CLEAN OUT ANY HARMFUL AND UNWANTED CALCIFICATION IN YOUR VEINS, ORGANS, AND BRAIN THAT CAN AND WILL CAUSE BLOCKAGES, HEART ATTACKS, STROKES, AND BLOCKING YOUR THIRD EYE.
    CHLORELLA WILL REMOVE ANY OTHER HEAVY METAL POISON AND CHEMICALS THAT EDTA HAS NOT REMOVED FROM YOUR BLOOD, ORGANS AND BRAIN.
    THE FOOD BASED NUTRIENTS ARE VITAL IN THIS METHOD BECAUSE EDTA CAN AND WILL REMOVE SOME MINERALS AND OTHER NUTRIENTS FROM YOUR BODY.
    FYI: HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, HEART ATTACKS, STROKES, SEIZURES ETC., ONLY HAPPEN WITH CALCIFICATION OR CALCIUM DEPOSITS IN ALL AREAS OF YOUR BODY.
    REMOVING THE HARMFUL CALCIUM DEPOSITS WILL LOWER YOUR HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, AND STOP ANY FUTURE HEART ATTACKS AND STROKES.
    DO NOT RUSH, AS THIS WILL TAKE TIME TO CLEAN OUT ALL TOXINS, CHEMICALS AND POISONS.
    DEPENDING ON YOUR AGE, ILLNESSES AND DISABILITIES, YOU WILL SEE IMPROVEMENTS IN WEEKS OR MONTHS. WITH ME, IT WAS WHEN MY THIN VEINS WERE CLEANED OUT AND I SAW MY VEINS INCREASE IN SIZE.
    SHARE THIS WITH OTHERS AND FIRST RESEARCH THE WONDERS OF EDTA AND CHLORELLA.

  9. The “Surya Yoga” referred to in this article is also called “Raj Yoga”. It is basically the practice of accepting yourself (and even others, in fact) as a soul. It’s the process of going from “I have a soul and I am a body” to “I am a soul and I have a body”.
    Very well said about cleaning your diet or to detox in order to decalcify your pineal gland. However, out of all the food items you discussed, I specifically want to know the effects of onion and garlic on the pineal gland. If you go deep into the yogic (or ayurvedic) knowledge, they ask you to give up onion and garlic as they are “tamsic” in nature (denoting a class of foods that are dry, old, foul, or unpalatable, and are thought to promote pessimism, ignorance, laziness, criminal tendencies, and doubt).
    I want to know the science behind it to make a stronger argument against ignorant people 😛

    Also, if anyone has ever heard of the Brahma Kumaris, this article has given their philosophy a scientific backing. The whole concept of the “soul and flesh” and achieving higher consciousness seems simpler now 🙂

  10. When I was younger I would relax to black juju by Alice cooper . I still lie back and listen to it and fine myself drifting off till its time to come back.
