How to Decalcify and Detoxify the Pineal Gland

WIKI - Pineal Gland1Anna Hunt, Staff Writer
Waking Times

The pineal gland, an endocrine gland located in the brain, is said to be the seat of the soul. Also referred to as the Third Eye, this small gland is believed to be involved in reaching higher levels of consciousness, acting as a gateway to dimensions beyond our brain-created reality. To learn more about the pineal gland, see: What is the Pineal Gland?

For the people that seek to fully activate their spiritual potential and tap into the power of the pineal gland, one must begin by strengthening its function though detoxification and proper nutrition. Researchers are finding that in many people, due to our poor diet with pesticide and chemical-laden foods and environmental toxins such as fluoride in our water, the pineal gland and our entire bodies are becoming exposed to many more toxins and nano-organisms than ever before. These form calcium shells around themselves for protection from our immune systems which has resulted in calcification of the pineal gland, a build-up of calcium phosphate crystals in various parts of the human body. Many of us have a pineal gland that is already completely calcified. This does not fare well when we try to tap into the esoteric capabilities of this gland through yoga practice, meditation, using plant medicines such as ayahuasca, and so forth. The process of detoxification is an essential place to start if we want to exploit our full spiritual capabilities.

Below is a list, in no particular order, of 8 supplements that will boost your pineal gland function, help in its decalcification, and support you on your journey of personal and spiritual cultivation. Some of the supplements offer similar results, so it is up to you to decide which combination of supplements will work best for you.

1. Melatonin

The pineal gland already produces the hormone melatonin, which affects the body’s circadian rhythms of waking and sleeping. Melatonin is also associated with relaxation and visualization, and people often take melatonin supplements as a sleep aid or to help overcome jet-lag due to travel. When purchasing melatonin supplements, make sure the products are plant-based and not animal tested. It is suggested that you always start with the smallest dosage possible and do not use any melatonin supplement for longer than three months.

Natrol Liquid Melatonin

2. Oregano Oil and Neem Extract

Both oregano oil and neem extract help in the purification process, helping to remove existing calcification within the pineal gland, in addition to purifying the body’s systems, especially the endocrine system. Neem has been used in this way in India for thousands of years. In the western world, oregano oil is also becoming a holistic way of fortifying the immune support system. In the longer term, both of these supplements will act as a natural antibiotic against new calcium shells created by nanobacteria.

3. Raw Cacao

Raw, organic chocolate in its purest form can help detoxify the pineal gland because of cacao’s high antioxidant content. Cacao will also help stimulate the third eye.

4. Chlorophyll-rich Superfoods

Supplements like spirulina, chlorella, wheatgrass and blue-green algae are examples of chlorophyll-rich superfoods that offer similar benefits to eating leafy greens but with much more nutrition packed into a small serving. These supplements assist in the decalcification of the pineal gland due to their strong detoxification properties.

5. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

A natural detoxifier, raw apple cider vinegar helps decalcify the pineal gland due to its malic acid properties. Malic acid is an organic compound that gives fruits their sour taste. When taken as a supplement, it supports the digestive system and helps the body detoxify. Apple cider vinegar has many health benefits, many of which are listed here. Ensure that the brand you buy is raw and packaged in a glass container.

6. Iodine

Many of us have been exposed to sodium fluoride due to fluoridation of our water systems, and this has also resulted in the calcification of the pineal gland. Iodine, naturally occurring in plants such as seaweed, effectively improves the removal of sodium fluoride via urine. Unfortunately, the Western diet has left us deficient of this vital mineral while our bodies need it most. To avoid calcium deficiency when taking iodine supplements, a diet incorporating many organic foods such as kale, broccoli, almonds, oranges, flax seed, sesame seeds, dill, thyme and other dried herbs is recommended. It is suggested that a non-GMO lecithin supplement is also taken to compliment iodine intake.

7. Organic Blue Ice Skate Fish Oil and Activator X (Vitamin K1/K2)

If you’d like to take a natural supplement to decalcify your pineal gland, organic blue ice skate fish oil may be one of the most powerful options out there. This oil contains Activator X – a detoxifier discovered by Weston Price that combines Vitamins K1 and K2 – which allows for the body to remove calcium from various locations throughout the body, such as the pineal gland and the arteries. Instead of eliminating the excess calcium, as iodine does, Activator X places it in areas where calcium is most needed, such as bones and teeth. It has been reported to reverse damage done by calcification which results in diseases such as atherosclerosis and osteoporosis. It also helps reverse tooth decay. It is suggested that Activator X supplements are be taken with Vitamin A and D3.

8. Boron/Borax

Another good supplement that can be used to remove fluoride from the human body is the mineral Boron. It is naturally present in beets, which can be eaten raw, steamed, cooked as well as in a powder supplement. It is also present in other foods, such as dried plums. Borax is an inexpensive source of boron that can be bought in most grocery stores.

What Else Can Help Boost Your Pineal Gland Function?

In addition to the supplements listed above, there are many foods that help decalcify and improve the function of the pineal gland, while detoxifying other parts of the body. These include: cilantro, tamarind, Goji berries, watermelon, bananas, honey, coconut oil, hemp seeds, seaweed, Noni Juice, garlic, Chaga mushroom, raw lemon juice. Pineal gland decalcification can also be gained by eating more alkaline foods. See a list of such foods here: Alkaline Foods to Help Decalcify the Pineal Gland.

  • mike

    i must say a lot of good information here. i would like to know what are the early signs of the pineal gland starting calcification. this is a goal i would like to achieve. i would also like to here others personal experiences in this area.

    regards mike

  • Sofia

    Hi, loved the article and would like a clarification, please:
    First you say that we should avoid Calcium supplements to stop further calcification (under step 1), but then under step 2 you recommend taking Calcium/Magnesium if we are taking Iodine (which I am).
    So which one is it and why?
    Thanks for your answer

  • Evgeny Kolev

    Too much crap and ignorance.
    Like the fluoride forming calcium phosphate! REALLY!?
    WOW. Alchemistry 101. Magnetically attracted? Really?
    And then suggesting to avoid Calcium.

    We die from modern-taste addiction in a two-punch combination:
    posonous “food” and no, or wrong exercise.

    Of course, being narcotised by the ever-increasing fluoride dosages in and on everything is now your absolute single greatest threat to your survival.

    Our Owners are multiplying the dosage of the proven effectiveness of fluoride in mob control exactly as it was tested and proved in the NAZI Concentration camps.
    There are far too many people to feed today. This is a better solution than a messy War. We are being culled in a very efficient and quietly controlled manner. AND it is harder to escape than the other method: vaccination.
    Fluoride is now being used everywhere:

  • Jh

    This is just marketing to sell you supplements, if there are no references to actual studies of pineal calcification, I wouldn’t take any of these without doing further research. Fluoride is bad for you that’s established. But which form of fluride? It can’t be every molecule containg fluoride, or calcium. Non one wants part of their brain to be turned to stone, but this push to sell shit like activator X, which is what exactly, is after your money.

  • The Dude

    As someone who has been trying to maintain a decalcified pineal gland for a long while, I have to say that a lot of this, while it MAY be of some health benefit, I question it’s actual relevance to the pineal gland. The blue ice skate fish oil people seem to be marketing geniuses though because man they recommend their product for just about everything. If you want to check it out, all you really HAVE to do is get away from fluoride. You’ll notice the difference within a month or 2 and it does show up in your dreams first for sure.

  • cday

    I don’t know why articles about decalcifying the pineal gland are different than articles about decalcifying the body. But if you have atherosclerosis, calcified heart valves, or kidney stones, the wisdom is to take magnesium and Vitamin K. The reasoning is that magnesium and calcium should be in a 1:1 ratio in the body. If not, calcium collects. Magnesium is supposed to help calcium become more soluble. Vitamin K is also supposed to help de-calcify the body.

    After 10 years of taking fluoride-based antidepressants, I withdrew from them and had a distinct ‘draining’ feeling in the middle of my crown where my pineal gland was located. I had massive dreams. It’s been over a year since then, but whenever I drink a smoothie loaded in berries or cherries, I have that same withdrawal feeling at night. The third-eye chakra is supposed to be purple, and I don’t doubt it. Every purple food gives me this crazy detox feeling in the center of my head. Cherries, blueberries, and blackberries make me fall into deep dreamy sleep. I don’t know if this is technically decalcification or detoxification, but the experience is cool.

    Why is distilled water harmful in the long run? thats not true!

    • ab

      distiled water is hungary water which has no minerals in it and when it is indigested it observes minerals besides toxins, long term uses deplete the minerals of the body. you shall keep the distilled water in clean glasswares which is well covered otherwise it will suck the toxins of the air and the residues of the plasticwares and caps.

  • jonathan

    i don’t know if this is BS or not. but even so, whats wrong with trying a new way to be healthy? who care if you try this and all of a sudden you’re psychic? what if it actually makes you feel better? seriously, you all need to chill and be open minded

  • Christian

    I’ve heard that removing calcium from your diet also helps decalcify your bones!

  • Kim

    Just wondering why this article says that one of the number one causes of calcification is calcium supplements. It advises to stop taking them. However, further down the article it suggests taking calcium supplements when you are taking iodine. Please explain.

    You mentioned staying free of caffeine.
    & yet I have read several studies promoting the positive effects of caffeine?
    Do you mind sharing what is behind your belief that caffeine is bad?
    I am trying to be as healthy as possible, but am very addicted to energy supplements…I have tried switching to green tea capsules, yohimbine, and pure caffeine anhydrous…but would really like to know more of the research behind caffeine’s adverse effects. Thanks.
    For as far as I know, I really do feel more awake, better able to concentrate, and have more energy, although I know its not a natural energy, and it is a form of addiction.
    Thanks.

    • Sarah

      IT depletes adrenals, calcium and magnesium and trace elements, sends you into a stimulated state where you act hyperactively on false energy. this is highly addictive. there are plenty of studies that prove the harmful effects of coffee over ANY false info about it being good for you. ! its not! period. Why do you think everyone is addicted to it? Something that everyone does, is usually negative. wean yourself off with green tea (herbal) and do some relaxation therapies because being continually up and wired going 100miles per hour, is not good for you.

    • Carrie

      You answered the question yourself by saying, “althought I know its not a natural energy, and it is a form of addiction.” What would be added to your own comment?

  • James

    Shilajit will also help. The fulvic acid dissolves it. It is a mater “herb” in Ayurveda medicine. It is actually rock pitch from high in the Himalayas mountains.

    Also, you need to get rid of the scar tissue, which also acts like a plastic insulator around a wire. I had major health problems, including a bad heart attack and all I did was take Serrapaptase from this company. Instead of going to the hospital, I went to the local health food store and got there weak Serrapaptase at 20,000iu. I needed 80,000iu and I found this one. He has formulations which also do other things. I might have even had cancer, because after an Xray for a hernia (scar tissue rip) and I had torn many back muscles too and had a herniated disk too from lack of muscle structure.

    Now, all is well and after 21/2 months and a few days after my hernia surgery I am now almost pain free, as I took it right after and I am almost walking normally after 5 days.

    I’ve never seen something work this well and I have done lots of internal cleansing, but none got rid of the scar tissue. MSM helps, but this actually will remove it. They work well together. They even sell one with MSM in it, but it’s cheaper to get your own and then take Shilajit with 85 minerals.

    https://goodhealthusa.com/

    This guy has it down. He is a pharmacist in Great Briton and also has a websites for people in Europe. It also cleaned up everything, like my lungs and other glands too. I sleep better and think so much clearer, because it will clean up your brain too. Just read the testimonials. I believe they are real because I can attest to what this did for me. It cleans out the arteries and gets rid of inflammation too. He has a super anti-inflammatory there too.

    I may have had cancer too, being when I had the Xray for my lungs for the hernia surgery I may have activated some cancer because I need an extra Xray because I was born in Denver in the 50’s during the nuclear text and I never reached my full height but my lungs did and they go all the way to my pelvis.

    I was taking 20 to 30 pills of Serrapaptase a day, as Robert, the guy who owns the company says the more you take the faster it works and so I believe he is right. I could feel it working all over my body, cleaning out everything.

    After 21/2 months, I feel totally renewed too in a lot of ways. I also feel happier and relaxed too.

    Sobre cálcio + suplementos se pode ver os estudos da Dra Carolyn Dean sobre a falta de magnésio e as implicações com o cálcio e as várias doenças advindas disso. Como o magnésio influi em 1300 processos em nosso corpo é vital escolhermos um equilíbrio. Pesquisa e procura é fundamental, não delegue aos outros, procure saber para ter sua própria conclusão.

    They can’t put anything on the Internet that isn’t true. I heard that on the Internet. But seriously, I was looking at Wiki about it. There are some interesting things. And sure a good diet and exercise and trying not to put chemicals in your body is great. Whether you are attempting to detox a part of your brain,body or just want to feel better. That is kind of stating the obvious. I mean I know a lot of this to he true. And I see no harm in asking for a reference either. But even with that said. Take it for what it is worth. Even as an opinion it still sounds like a decent idea. If you are in to that. I also hear all this and that about the best RAW food diet, but…. Not for me. Theynsay don’t eat red meat. It is so bad for you. Not for me. They say eat more veggie, not for me. Although trying to. Every couple years it changes. I remember hearing mklk may he bad for you when I was a kid so..

      The Berkey has three types of filters available for it. The flouride filter attaches to either the ceramic, or the carbon/ceramic and is sold separately.

        Drinking urine is something that many people do and it is nothing like eating shit. Urine is sterile and will not harm you. There are also athletes who drink their own urine. Eating shit is a different story.

    It takes way longer that “a couple months” to detoxify any body part in any real way. It takes years to detox, it is painstaking and involves lots of suffering and torment. We as humans have really f—-d ourselves up with poisons and parasites, worse than we realise.

    I also think the neti pot is important in detoxifying the pineal gland, and “reactivating” it. You should bend completely over and upsidedown to get the salt water into the uppermost areas of your sinuses, in your forehead, and shake it around! The sinuses are very much connected to the pineal gland. If you use the neti everyday for many months you will see why I say they are connected.

  • Matt Markonis

    The solution to a “calcified pineal gland” is to consume a bunch of unrelated, costly dietary supplements? I’d rather be “third eye blind,” and muddle through like the rest of the world.

    • http://www.decalcifypinealgland.com Spiritual Scientist

      Hi Matt,

      Not always the case, you don’t have to consume costly supplements, there are many other ways to decalcify your pineal gland listed on the site: http://www.decalcifypinealgland.com
      If you did wish to try supplements, what’s £30 for one month’s supply compared to discovering and opening up a part of your body which may have lay dormant for many years? For me it’s all about experience and experimentation – it’s the way I like to discover new things. Unfortunately we live in a society where most things have a price tag so paying for things cannot always be avoided.

      Love & blessings,
      Spiritual Scientist

  • Bill

    I am with you so far but what evidence is there to prove what you are saying here? I am seeing a lot of sites talking about calcification and the undoubted issues with fluoride but without some proof the skeptics will have a field day here.

  • http://www.fireyourmdnow.com/ Hilary

    I’m surprised that calcium is a problem for the pineal gland as it is mentioned by Dr Peter Glidden, ND that calcium deficiency is very common in much of the Western peoples diet and we should add it as supplements at least as it is not easy to get enough of it just from food. I keeping on with the calcium supplements, but a flouride free now.
    Also, I’m not a veggie, but a speaker called Pane Andov says that to be truly in touch through your pineal, you also need to be a veggie…it works for him.

  • http://www.andywarstar.blogspot.com Andy Warstar

    Just recently had a lobotomy, and while he was up in there, I asked the veterinarian to check my pineal. It was actually all covered in yogurt, which I done heard has lots of calcium. So he just removed the whole darn thing, and I’m feelin’ much better now.

      • Claus

        Come on, I think it’s absolutely o. k. to ask for research that an author did. If the author is credible and has done serious research he/she should not be afraid to name the sources.

        The fluoride thing is well-established even in mainstream science, btw.

        Has nothing to do with BS – I wouldn’t believe anything just because someone says so. And this goes both for mainstream and alternative research. Otherwise it would be religion – and THAT is BS. You always have to keep an open mind.

        So, in naming some sources, people would be able to do further research for themselves, see the evidence that is being put out there.

        In closing this comment, I also would kindly ask the author to please give a reference list. Some of the points make sense but I couldn’t find out myself.

        Thx

          Hi Claus,

          Thank you for your comments, and questioning things is healthy.

          This research has been accumulated over some time from many different sources. To be honest, I never kept a reference list as these have been various people’s suggestion, advice and experience for detoxing/decalcifying the body and the pineal gland.

          I am sure if you do your own investigation you will come to the same conclusions as the kind people who originally gave me this information. If at the minimum it gets your curiosity going, then that can only be a good thing.

          • http://twitter.com/GratefulEnergy Om Namah Shivaya

            Hello SPiritual Scientist,

            Namaste; let me say, I’m first of all appreciative for your extensive effort, this is a good page to bookmark. With that said, I wanted to ask you of your research about garlic… You see, I am a Yogi, and we do not take any of the alliums, even in East it is considered medicine not food. In any event, there is a nice page about this which I’ll break the link and leave it in the bottom but also paste the bulk here which I think you may find intriguing. Again, my hat tips to your nobility and sincerely hope and visualize your swift and impactful success.

            I’d love to see you add “Meditation” to this list, as any serious spiritual student would agree, the mind, when wielded by the consciousness for good and growth is capable of truly anything, and this very active activity of polarizing the pineal region with this divine awareness of awareness is surely THE MOST impactful and meaningful method to achieve not just decalcification but truly a permanent transmutation of the pineal from the souls seat to throne of the Atma. Just as Christian bible says, land flowing with milk and honey, this is the active pituitary and pineal glands flowing the milky white and golden yellow fluids, or Christ 5 wounds = the cutting off of the 5 senses when you meditate, the Jesus that is crucified is your pineal gland and the 2 thieves are the eyes, robbing you of truth, forcing judging comparing desire etc. etc. feeding you illusion; so to meditate is to crucify Jesus and the 2 thieves, and the the Christ Consciousness arises, this “Christ is the enlightened” pineal gland.

            Om Namah Shivaya = meditate on this, the first sound, the first word, the most holy and divine name of god, repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat this holy mantra and you will finally remember; that is what it is too, it is not discovery, it is not a destination, it is finally remembering, that is enlightenment… remember you are GOD, you are SOURCE, all is within YOU. You are not the body, you are NOT the mind, you are not the ego, if you want some word you are pure consciousness.

            Consciousness uses Mind as a sheath, Mind uses body as a sheath… Not body nor Mind can go experience enlightenment, you must leave those behind, those tools, they must be seen as tools, necessary illusions that you should not self identify with.

            Let me give you a proof of why “emptiness/silence/stillness” is true happiness:

            [We See, We Hear, We Touch, We Taste, We Smell, and instantly we wish to have/achieve a thing, this is desire… Now, this desire has you stressed (when will it come???!??) it has you fearful (WILL IT COME AT ALL?) it has you angry (How dare they say it will not come??!!)… Now you obtain the thing/achieve the status, whatever, you become instantly happy, quite pleased;

            Watch now, follow me on this: Now it may be moments or some greater time later, but never long, that we have now a fear arise (wherever there are 2 there is fear of separation), the fears (Will I lose it, WIll they steal it, Do I deservere to keep it) etc. etc. right, so now, the happiness DISAPPEARS!!

            Consequently, if not a fear, or in addition to the fear, surely also a new desire will form, a better one, a bigger one, a faster one, etc… the happiness is always temporary but let me show you what the happiness truly is: The happiness IS the EMPTINESS!! You see, the moment you became happy is the ONLY time, that infinitesimally small moment of emptiness was the true happiness, BUT, because that happiness spontaneously arises at the moment of obtaining of the thing/goal we confuse it for being the obtaining, never realizing it is the instant release of a desire because we perceive we have a “thing/status”, when TRULY, it is the momentary emptiness that is the happiness we experience!!!!

            Article Body:

            Here’s my short answer: As a devotee of Krishna and a practicing Bhakti-yogi, I don’t eat garlic and onions because they cannot be offered to Krishna.

            Here’s my longer answer:

            You may know that onions and garlic are botanical members of the alliaceous family (alliums) – along with leeks, chives and shallots.

            According to Ayurveda, India’s classic medical science, foods are grouped into three categories – sattvic, rajasic and tamasic – foods in the modes of goodness, passion and ignorance. Onions and garlic, and the other alliaceous plants are classified as rajasic and tamasic, which means that they increase passion and ignorance.

            Those that subscribe to pure brahmana-style cooking of India, including myself, and Vaishnavas – followers of Lord Vishnu, Rama and Krishna – like to only cook with foods from the sattvic category. These foods include fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs, dairy products, grains and legumes, and so on. Specifically, Vaisnavas do not like to cook with rajasic or tamasic foods because they are unfit to offer to the Deity.

            Rajasic and tamasic foods are also not used because they are detrimental to meditation and devotions. “Garlic and onions are both rajasic and tamasic, and are forbidden to yogis because they root the consciousness more firmly in the body”, says well-known authority on Ayurveda, Dr.Robert E.Svoboda.

            Some branches of western medicine say that the Alliums have specific health benefits; garlic is respected, at least in allopathic medical circles, as a natural antibiotic. In recent years, while the apparent cardiovascular implications of vegetable Alliums has been studied in some detail, the clinical implications of onion and garlic consumption from this point of view are still not well understood.

            Nevertheless, there are still many adverse things to say about garlic and onions. Not so well known is the fact that garlic in the raw state can carry harmful (potentially fatal) botulism bacteria. Perhaps it is with an awareness of this that the Roman poet Horace wrote of garlic that it is “more harmful than hemlock”.

            It should be pointed out that Garlic and onion are avoided by spiritual adherents because they stimulate the central nervous system, and can disturb vows of celibacy. Garlic is a natural aphrodisiac. Ayurveda suggests that it is a tonic for loss of sexual power from any cause, sexual debility, impotency from over-indulgence in sex and nervous exhaustion from dissipating sexual habits. It is said to be especially useful to old men of high nervous tension and diminishing sexual power.

            The Taoists realized thousands of years ago that plants of the alliaceous family were detrimental to humans in their healthy state. In his writings, one sage Tsang-Tsze described the Alliums as the “five fragrant or spicy scented vegetables” – that each have a detrimental effect on one of the following five organs – liver, spleen, lungs, kidneys, and heart. Specifically, onions are harmful to the lungs, garlic to the heart, leeks to the spleen, chives to the liver and spring onions to the kidneys.

            Tsang-Tsze said that these pungent vegetables contain five different kinds of enzymes which cause “reactions of repulsive breath, extra-foul odour from perspiration and bowel movements, and lead to lewd indulgences, enhance agitations, anxieties and aggressiveness,” especially when eaten raw.

            Similar things are described in Ayurveda. ‘As well as producing offensive breath and body odour, these (alliaceous) plants induce aggravation, agitation, anxiety and aggression. Thus they are harmful physically, emotionally, mentally nd spiritually’.

            Back in the 1980’s, in his research on human brain function, Dr Robert [Bob] C. Beck, DSc. found that garlic has a detrimental effect on the brain. He found that in fact garlic is toxic to humans because its sulphone hydroxyl ions penetrate the blood-brain barrier and are poisonous to brain cells.

            Dr Beck explained that as far back as the 1950s it was known that garlic reduced reaction time by two to three times when consumed by pilots taking flight tests. This is because the toxic effects of garlic desynchronize brain waves. “The flight surgeon would come around every month and remind all of us: “Don’t you dare touch any garlic 72 hours before you fly one of our airplanes, because it’ll double or triple your reaction time. You’re three times slower than you would be if you’d [not] had a few drops of garlic.”

            For precisely the same reason the garlic family of plants has been widely recognized as being harmful to dogs.

            Even when garlic is used as food in Chinese culture it is considered harmful to the stomach, liver and eyes, and a cause of dizziness and scattered energy when consumed in immoderate amounts.

            Nor is garlic always seen as having entirely beneficial properties in Western cooking and medicine. It is widely accepted among health care professionals that, as well as killing harmful bacteria, garlic also destroys beneficial bacteria, which are essential to the proper functioning of the digestive system.

            Reiki practitioners explain that garlic and onions are among the first substances to be expelled from a person’s system – along with tobacco, alcohol and pharmaceutical medications. This makes it apparent that alliaceous plants have a negative effect on the human body and should be avoided for health reasons.

            Homeopathic medicine comes to the same conclusion when it recognizes that red onion produces a dry cough, watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose and other familiar cold-related symptoms when consumed.

            These are just some of the reasons I avoid leeks, chives, shallots, garlic and onions.

            Spiritual Scientist. Your statement is not true. You were not given the information – rather you stole it from me and then threatened myself with unfortunate circumstances when I called you up on it. Waking Times were courteous enough to cite part of the blog as my own.

          Ever heard of intuition?

          Intuition can light up things for us that are true or simply useful for us to listen to right now. This is why it’s valuable to listen to a wide variety of viewpoints and ideas, even ‘silly’ or untrue ones, and also why it’s valuable to share whatever information you feel like sharing – your intuition will use the opportunity to light things up for you.

          Research and references are useful to a point, in widening the array of possibilities and providing a path deeper into a subject. Yet really, we’re making it all up, and science changes its mind often, so its rock-solid conclusions are never that for long. Further, most scientific institutions are now at the mercy of irrational political and sinister agendas, so we’re pretty much running on common sense now, which is probably for the best.

            John, you clearly don’t understand how science works, it doesn’t ‘change its mind often’ and in no way are we ‘making it all up’. i am so fed up with comments like this. yes be open minded, yes explore new ideas, that is what science is based on, but please try to actually understand science before you say things like this, i am so sick of trying to educate uninformed people who somehow feel that they are enlightened.

          “The fluoride thing is well-established even in mainstream science, btw.”
          Hate to say it, but the flouride thing is NOT well established except for certain data that points to the flouride ion being necessary (topically applied) for tooth enamel repair. Too much and the teeth will become damaged (flourosis).
          Ingesting flouride (in any form) to fix one’s teeth is the equivalent to swallowing mouthwash to prevent halitosis.
          Not to mention, there is absolutely zero control on “dosage”

      I agree that a reference list is important as I have read many articles that list wikipedia or other websites as references. I am blessed to have had the benefit of a university education along with access to a vast database of peer-reviewed scientific journals. Now I am a very spiritual person however some of the claims made here are wrong and could lead to negative health benefits.

      I was once very concerned about flouride, however in Australia (where I am from) the introduction of flouride in drinking water reduced cases of serious tooth decay to 10% of their former levels. I believe that they mix it at 1ppm which is actually less than the concentration in the air if you live in a large metropolis or anywhere near an industrial area.

      Numerous studies (in the hundreds) have shown it to be safe. After reading many of these I am no longer concerned.

      This is one example, there are others in this article. I always encourage everyone to do their own research (with legitimate sources!!). A website ending in .com is not legitimate.

      (I do enjoy reading many articles on this site I promise! This one just needs some adjustment I think)

      Rick.

      if you are a biochemist – explain why you are asking such a question – shouldn’t you already know the answer you seek?
