More Nutrition for the Mind’s Eye: Tips and Foods to Keep Your Pineal Gland Healthy

/, Spirituality/More Nutrition for the Mind’s Eye: Tips and Foods to Keep Your Pineal Gland Healthy

pineal gland nutrition
“Fluoride accumulates in the body. Even low doses are harmful to babies, the thyroid, kidney patients and heavy water-drinkers. There are even doubts about fluoridation’s effectiveness”

(Smith 2012)

With my last article, “Nutrition for the Mind’s Eye: Foods to Reactivate Your Pineal Glandvastly approaching viral status, I figured that a continuation on the topic was in order.

This topic has inspired many people to take charge of their health, but it has also sparked a raging amount of controversy and flat out anger in others. It seems that this is a touchy subject, especially when you want to warn people about the dangers of fluoride (and God forbid you talk about natural toothpaste! YIKES!). The beauty of life is that you are free to make your OWN decisions. We can agree to disagree in a harmonious fashion if you think that my writing is “absurd,” but for those of you, who are longing for more, read on!

“It’s senseless to keep subjecting our children to this ongoing fluoridation experiment to satisfy the political agenda of special-interest groups. Even if fluoridation reduced cavities, is tooth health more important than brain health? It’s time to put politics aside and stop artificial fluoridation everywhere”

~Attorney Paul Beeder

But in case you didn’t heed my fluoride warning the first time, here’s some more food for thought;

According to fluoride toxicological data, the NRC reported in 2006, “It’s apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain” (2012).  No kidding, right?! What about the effects on a developing fetus? “Fluoride readily crosses the placenta. Fluoride exposure to the developing brain, which is much more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants than is the mature brain, may possibly lead to damage of a permanent nature” (Choi et al. 2012).

The pineal gland, also known as the “mind’s eye,” is responsible for melatonin production and secretion, as previously stated in my last article. Melatonin, of course, is responsible for our circadian rhythm or sleep-wake cycle. I shouldn’t need to educate you on the importance of that, as it should speak for itself.

In regards to calcification of the pineal gland, also known as “brain sand,” a host of problems can occur and that is why we need to keep our pineal gland healthy. Although many things can cause the pineal gland not to function in tip top shape, fluoride still remains a major concern.

The disorders below have been collected from a variety of sources, including Dr. Rashid A. Buttar (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine), and some great information from the doctors at

According to Dr. Buttar, “Our mind’s eye receives constant and massive blood supply, ever taking in nourishment from the blood life force. As a result, any “death” in the blood, aka toxicity, easily accumulates in the pineal gland” (2013).

Dr. Buttar states that pineal gland calcification leads to:

  • weight gain or obesity
  • slow thyroid
  • digestive disorders
  • kidney trouble
  • poor circulation
  • confusion
  • loss of sense of direction
  • mood or mental disorders
  • lack of vision
  • lowered IQ

On the flip said, detoxing and decalcifying the pineal gland enhances:

  • overall health
  • healthy nervous system function
  • hormonal balance
  • sleep
  • focus
  • cognition
  • dreaming
  • imagination

More things we can do for a healthy pineal gland:

Eat Boron Rich Foods

In combination with the tips in my previous article, Dr. Buttar recommends eating foods with high levels of Boron. “Boron is a mineral found in food. It’s used to build strong bones and muscles, promote good muscle coordination and healthy testosterone levels, and to enhance cognition. It’s also known as an effective fluoride remover. Boron is found naturally in raisins, dates, chickpeas, red kidney beans, hazelnuts, walnuts, lentils and peanut butter” (2013).

Load Up On Garlic

Med-Health recommends loading up on garlic daily to keep your pineal gland healthy. They state, “Garlic can help to dissolve calcium in the body. Consume half a bulb to two bulbs each day, eating it fresh or soaking it in fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to calm the offensive smell.” Garlic is a flavor that tastes fantastic in almost everything, so load up!

Try Neem Extract and Oregano Oil

According to the doctor-writers at, neem extract and oregano oil can also be used as natural antibiotics that can break down calcium shells from nanobacteria in the pineal gland. They also have many other anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.

Avoid Excessive Amounts of Calcium

Calcium is great for you in normal doses and essential for bone health, but excessive consumption and supplementation can lead to a buildup of calcium deposits in the body. A key factor in calcium supplementation is balanced Vitamin D intake. They need each other! Also, the body can only absorb around 500 mg of calcium at one time, so if you do supplement make sure you don’t take a dose larger than this in a single setting.

De-stress and Meditate

This is probably one of the most overlooked and important things we can do for our pineal gland and our overall health. All the nutrition and healthy foods in the world cannot compensate for a stressful mind. Learn successful ways to control stress in your life. Meditation is a great way to de-stress, for example! There are many types of meditation, so do some research and find what works for you. If this isn’t your cup of tea, then I urge you to find something that helps to relax you. The sky’s the limit!

My sole purpose is to help others; my ideas may not appeal to you and that is fine, but if I can help just one person live a happier, healthier life then my job is complete! Nourish your mind and be well!

    I think your website (page) is a wonderful addition to what learning should be. I commend you for a job well done. Having said that, I’ve been sharing some of your excellent work in my group and I hope you don’t mind. But I felt compelled to tell you, just in case I should not be doing this. Please let me know.

    Thanks you so much,

      1/2 a bulb isn’t a huge amount really, but I do agree that it would be hard to do 1-2 bulbs a day, everyday. I was sharing the info suggested by Med-Health, but I think the important thing is to just increase garlic consumption in our daily lives. I, personally, would have an easier time doing 2-3 cloves to 1/2 a bulb at most. Although, I think if would be easier to reach their suggestion if we roast the whole bulb ahead of time and add them to food as needed. There are also many great garlic supplements out there that can give you the benefits without actually eating garlic. I must say, though, eating our nutrition is always better that taking a supplement. The important thing is to do what you are comfortable with, when these tips or other healthy habits become a chore, you are likely to become frustrated and give up, so some is better than none. Find what works for you! Be well!

    Thanks for sharing the wonderful article and help the humanity, but its just the information regarding good health, there are many toothpaste out there i checked after reading your article having flouride, so what will be the alternative you suggest to keep the gums healthy, with brain?

    • Amie Moses July 28, 2014 at 8:54 pm - Reply

      Hello, thanks for the comment! It is rather hard to find a good toothpaste without fluoride, but they do exist. I recommend looking into Coral White, it’s a toothpaste made from coral calcium and minerals. It’s pH balanced and also contains Hydrogen Peroxide, Tea Tree, Spearmint Oils, Enchinacea, Golden Seal, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginseng, and Ginkgo. It really is a great toothpaste. Fluoride free toothpaste containing Xylitol such as Spry brand or Tom’s of Maine are good options too. Xylitol is a sweetener that actually prevents cavities (unlike sugar) and has amazing oral benefits! Be well!

    I was raised on fluoridated water and was ready to call BS on most of this but then I read your list and I do all but one of the things on it. Maybe the 148 IQ was in spite of fluoride and should have been 180!
