How Fluoride Damages Pineal Gland Health.

Fluoride was originally added to the water supply sometime around the end of World War II in an effort to improve overall dental health. While the well-intended practice may have accomplished just that (although it’s still up for debate), no one anticipated the physical health dangers. Now, more and more people are recognizing the effects, and one of those is how it damages the pineal gland.

Fluoride: A Neurotoxin That Damages Your Pineal Gland

If you’ve never heard of the pineal gland, know it’s got a pretty important job. Located in the center of the brain, it’s responsible for melatonin synthesis (which plays a role in maintaining normal rhythms and sleep cycles), and also helps convert signals between our nervous and endocrine systems. Something about melatonin: it’s thought to act as a neuro-protector that could play a role in the aging process and Alzheimer’s, so when it’s messed up by things like fluoride, you could probably guess the result. [1] Unfortunately, the pineal gland can develop problems because it can also absorb a lot of fluoride—even more than our bones.

Our bones are exposed to toxic fluoride much more than we might think. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests: ”Fluoride levels above 1.5 mg per liter cause pitting of tooth enamel and deposits in bones.” [2] And because so much of the general water supply in the U.S. is still fluoridated, we’re often exposed to levels in the 2 to 5 mg range. Remember, not only is fluoride in the water, it’s also in a lot of the dental products you might be using.

But, let’s get back to that pineal gland. Fluoride can accumulate and calcify on the gland, blocking its effectiveness, and these deposits can get worse as we age. [3] No one is completely sure how fluoride build-up hurts the gland, but there are lots of ideas. A blocked pineal gland could lead to things like trouble sleeping or weight gain. One study even suggests toxic calcification could lead to early onset of puberty in girls. [4]

How to Detoxify the Pineal Gland

If you want to detox and decalcify your pineal gland from fluoride, there are some easy things you can do! First, stop drinking fluoridated water; this means you should probably steer clear of tap water, choosing alkaline or distilled water instead. Another thing you could do is try fluoride-free dental products.

So, now that you know a little bit about how fluoride can damage pineal gland health, what will you do to avoid it?

One of the ways this calcification is accomplished, is by the removal of the body’s Boron. Boron is one of the most important elements the body uses to properly assimilate and utilize Calcium, as well as to help regulate the body’s Calcium levels. Fluorides (especially of the form that is added to drinking water) bind up and cause the body to flush out most of its supply of Boron through the urine. This, plus the relative unavailability of Boron compounds from the soils (due to the excessive use of petroleum-based fertilizers and pesticides) creates chronic Boron-deficiency in the body.

Fluorides, as well as excessive amounts of other halides (like too much salt), effectively bind up and flush Boron out of the body. Therefore, a Boron-supplimentation therapy is needed for the body to be able to rebalance its Calcium levels, AND help mitigate severe Magnesium deficiencies.

Just more reasons to completely avoid fluoridated water and products made with fluoridated water!
