Re: Does fluoride calcify the pineal gland?

No way, no day, René. Exactly the opposite.

That’s an Old Doctors’ Tale that’s been commandeered by the New Age Facebook community.


Fluoride causes “a decrease in the availability of free calcium ions in the mineralization environment.”

That’s fancy beaker boy-speak for decalcification.


Pineal fluorosis is the same as dental fluorosis — hypomineralization, not hypermineralization.

Fluoridated water is especially unhealthy for children.

According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) …

“Prevalence of dental fluorosis was higher among younger persons and ranged from 41% among adolescents aged 12-15 to 9% among adults aged 40-49.”

That’s not a misprint. It really is 41 percent.

No such measurements (to my knowledge) are available for the pineal gland, but children are vulnerable.


What a perfect way to dumb down children — damage their major transducer between circadian rhythms and the circulation of the blood.

Only the kidneys have a greater blood supply than the pineal gland.


Josephine Arendt (Melatonin and the Mammalian Pineal Gland, 1995) wrote …

“The pineals of many species contain calcified lumps or concretions. In humans it has generally been considered a feature of adult, or at least postpubertal pineals, as assessed by radiological studies. In fact, calcification is probably initiated in early life and is present in very fine granules undetectable by radiography. It appears to take place in ‘ground substance’ which is thought to be secreted by pinealocytes and is present in both parenchymal cells and in intercellular tissue (Tapp, 1979). It may be an index of past secretory activity: denervation of the gerbil pineal leads to decreased calcification.”

(Note from Atom: If you don’t use it, you lose it.)


According to the same source …

“Interestingly, calcified masses usually consist of concentric layers of material infiltrated by a number of minerals. It has been suggested that the rhythmic metabolic activity of the pineal is responsible for the ring formation — but whether rings are laid down daily, yearly, or with other periodicities is unknown. There is no evidence that the presence of calcification leads to degeneration of pineal cells and metabolic activity (at least melatonin formation) within the gland of adult humans is not related to quantity of calcification. It is nevertheless possible that in the young, calcification has an important physiological role.”

One “important physiological role” is the formation of “brain sand.”

It’s the counterpart of “ear rocks” (otoliths), which act like crystal radios, especially sensitive to near-field sound waves.

So maybe the Third Eye is also a Third Ear?

The otoliths of the inner ear also respond to linear acceleration and gravity.

Does the Third Eye/Ear have anything to do with balance and equilibrium?

After all, it’s been proven that melatonin influences human balance.


Brain sand accumulates various minerals, including the toxic ones.

A pineal analysis would probably be more accurate than a hair analysis, especially because it’s on the south side of the blood brain barrier.

But it’s far less invasive to snip off a clump of hair than slice off a segment of pineal gland.

    “The pineal, the retina and the SCN together form the basic structures perceiving and transducing the non-visual effects of light. The major pineal hormone melatonin provides a closed loop to this system.”

      Hello Atom! A recent guest on One Radio Network mentioned that mouth breathing should be avoided because it triggers a minor “Fight or Flight” response in the body and increases stress levels. You have mentioned that one of the benefits of the Buteyko breathing method is restoring and providing a healthy balance of carbon dioxide in the body, which results in things like muscle relaxation and nerve stabilization. There are several breath training devices on the market that reportedly provide similar physiological effects to the Buteyko method, one example being the Samozdrav, a popular Russian device used to increase arterial blood carbon dioxide levels and to train people to breathe properly. The thing I have noticed about all of these devices is that they all incorporate a mouth piece as the means of directing the air flow through the training mechanism. My question is would the use of the mouth to train the breathing with such devices result in the activation of the “Fight or Flight” stress response and thereby negate any health benefits attained by using them? Is is better to keep the mouth closed as much as possible when performing breathing exercises?

        Meditation with the mouth closed is your highest choice.

        Forcing the breath to do one’s bidding leads to complications.

        Meditation ~leads to~ the delta brain wave ~leads to~ the breathless state while motionless ~leads to~ the breathless state in motion.

        Shortcuts draw blood, while the long way only draws sweat.

    Are Nevada pine nuts good for the pineal gland? Would you recommend the teachings of Christ when he said “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” IS this meditation in the light of the day OR in complete darkness. Do you have an opinion on this?

      Most pine nuts are OK for the pineal gland.

      It’s thine “eyes (plural) be single.” Then the pineal gland is activated.

      The ideal time to meditate is between the hours of 2:30-7:00 a.m. That’s when the sound and the light are closest to Oneness.
