Many people hear the word melatonin and they are quick to associate it with thoughts of a good night’s sleep, but the majority of people do not understand that melatonin is a hormone which is produced by the pineal gland that does much more than help you sleep. Melatonin is responsible for influencing the onset of puberty; it also acts as a powerful antioxidant for the brain as well as other tissues and seems to play a major role in modulating the immune system.
So where does melatonin come from? The pineal gland, which is located deep in the center of the brain, is the gland that is responsible for the production of melatonin. The pineal gland controls the bio-rhythms of the body and works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland to direct the body’s thirst, hunger, sexual desire and biological clock. It is the job of the pineal gland to regulate the action of the pituitary gland, it prevents premature sexual awakening and inhibits the immediate discharging of thoughts into action. Thus we have the ability to think through our anger and other emotions rather than merely reacting to them.
On June 29, 2000, at the U.S. Senate Congressional Hearing on Arsenic, Radon, and Fluoride, held by the subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, and Water, J. Willam Hirzy, Ph.D. testified fluoride in public water supplies causes or contributes to the cause of cancer, genetic damage, intolerant reactions, chronic toxicity, dental fluorosis, bone pathology and neurological injury in humans, and that fluoride in public water supplies aggravates malnutrition, iodine deficiencies and other existing illnesses.
This is created because the human body has very little ability to effectively use and pass off accumulated levels of fluoride. So the question must then be asked, what happens to all of the fluoride that is accumulated?
Apparently fluoride builds up in the pineal gland calcifying it! Thus limiting or at the very least reducing the ability to create proper amounts of melatonin, regulate the actions of the pituitary gland and reduces are natural immunity to disease.
Along with all of these is the added chemical interference with our spiritual and emotional awareness! Fluoride calcifies the pineal gland and turns it into a rock, because of the calcification our sense of direction becomes impaired, our sleep is disturbed and we have increased trouble controlling our emotions and thoughts.
Next question, how do we help combat and change all of this? Eliminate all fluoride from the diet, especially hidden fluoride from water, medications and food additives then plan to spend at least 20 minutes of every day out of doors in the sunshine and fresh air. This will help stimulate the calcified pineal gland.
