How to Detoxify your Pineal Gland

How to Detoxify your Pineal Gland
Unlock the Gateway to Higher Consciousness in Your Brain

A tiny pea-sized gland shaped like a pinecone, residing in the centre of our brains, may hold the secrets to spiritual wisdom, inspiration and psychic awareness. The Pineal Gland is vital for physical, mental and spiritual health, while also being a gateway to higher consciousness.

It is widely believed that the pineal gland is key to our spiritual awakening and psychic abilities.Traditionally, the pineal gland is said to be the third eye chakra, otherwise known as Ajna or the eyebrow chakra, which is set back and between our two physical eyes.

So what is the pineal gland?

It is an endocrine gland sitting alone in the brain, level with our eyes. The pineal gland produces melatonin and regulates our daily and seasonal circadian rhythms. Melatonin is the chemical in charge of our sleep cycles and the quality of our sleep, and it also regulates the onset of puberty. Melatonin is responsible for fighting against free radicals. A decline in melatonin triggers the ageing process in the body. Serotonin, the neurotransmitter or happy chemical responsible for our mood, is transformed into melatonin only in the pineal gland. The pineal plays a major role in hibernation of animals, in metabolism and seasonal breeding.

Our Third Eye or our First Eye?

Scientific evidence supports the possibility that our third eye, or pineal, was once our first eye. Under the microscope, the pineal is made up of cells that have the same features as the rod-shaped light sensitive cells found in our retinas. The pineal gland receives signals that travel down the optic nerves. It seems the primitive third eye functioned as a sight organ before our current set of eyes. The pineal gland gives a perception of the world around us through our senses. It controls the action of light upon our body and is located beneath the cerebral cortex where the two hemispheres of the brain join. This is the place where the brain regulates consciousness and interprets the body’s sensory and motor functions.

According to theosophy, the pineal is an important psychophysiological centre or chakra and is the source of clairvoyance and intuition. It has also been described as “the principal seat of the soul,” and the portal to the higher dimensions, as the pineal, or third eye, provides perception beyond ordinary sight. Interestingly, the pineal gland has been linked to the production of the psychedelic DMT or dimethyltryptamine.

DMT is the most powerful psychedelic substance known to man. Scientific experiments have discovered DMT in the pineal gland of rats. It is believed that DMT is released during near death experiences, and this may explain the enhanced spiritual connection and awakening that takes place. DMT brings higher awareness and wisdom. The pineal and third eye, when awakened enable, us to open up to have visions, clairvoyance and other psychic gifts. It is vital to our spiritual growth and consciousness to keep our pineal gland clear and free of toxic substances. As we become more toxic and the pineal gland calcifies further, we lose our spiritual connection to higher energies and our oneness with all that is.

Why is the Pineal Gland blocked?

Through a poor diet, exposure to toxins in the environment and food we eat, stress and modern life, the pineal gland gets hardened, then calcified and eventually shuts down. It is also suppressed by electromagnetic fields (EMF) released by mobile phones and other wireless devices.The Pineal gland is especially sensitive to fluoride in the water. Fluoride, and other chemical substances like chlorine, are bad for the pineal as they deposit on tissues rich in calcium, such as the pineal. The gland calcifies when it encounters fluoride – these calcifications are known as corpora arenacea, or brain sand, and are made up of calcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, magnesium phosphate and ammonium phosphate.

Chemicals that are harmful to the pineal gland can come from everyday activities, for example, Fluoride is found in most toothpastes and tap water. Likewise, food laden with pesticides, preservatives and chemicals causes the pineal gland to become sluggish and lose its vitality and power. It is also believed that calcium supplements are detrimental to our health and that it is it better to gain calcium through our diet and calcium rich foods, such as almonds, leafy green vegetables and tahini.

It’s important to detox the body in order to decalcify the Pineal Gland. In today’s world, we are assaulted by an enormous range of chemicals, in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. Our poor diets and contemporary lifestyle are the main causes of decalcification. The Pineal Gland is very sensitive to chemicals and it is said that due to modern lifestyles, the pineal has shrunk. Indian Masters of the Vedic times were believed to have a pineal gland the size of a lemon. Today, our pineal gland is the size of small seed or pea. The primary goal of decalcifying your pineal gland is so that you can begin the process of pineal gland activation and awaken your third Eye.

Today our pineal gland is the size of small seed or pea.


Detoxification is a two part process; firstly ensuring that no further calcification takes place, while at the same time, reversing the calcification that has already occurred. This may require some lifestyle changes, the most important one being to drink pure water. Other lifestyle changes are to limit or stop the intake of sugar, caffeine, tobacco and alcohol, and to eat organic, natural whole food that is not laced with pesticides and genetic modifications.

Some ways to detoxify the pineal gland are by including chlorella, spirulina and wheatgrass in your diet. Oregano oil is also a wonderful way of detoxifying and encouraging pineal gland activation and clarity. Raw apple cider vinegar and pure cacao have a great effect on the pineal too.

Once we have cleared the pineal gland of toxins we can work on awakening the third eye. A simple way of activating the third eye is through meditation, especially meditating with your attention on the third eye area, which can be done in yoga practice and seated meditation.

Sun gazing was a potent way in ancient times to activate the pineal and third eye. Great Himalayan Masters practiced Surya Yoga by gazing at the rising sun with a silver coin placed between the eyebrows on the forehead. At dawn, the earth’s magnetic field is charged, making this the best time to meditate as it stimulates the pineal gland. Apparently, at dawn, the negatively charged pineal and the positively charged pituitary come together to create a “light in the head.”

At dawn the earth’s magnetic field is charged and it is the best time to meditate at this time, as it stimulates the pineal gland.Dawn is the best time to meditate as it stimulates the pineal gland.

Here are some other ways to Activate the Pineal Gland:

  1. Spend time in the sunlight every day
  2. Sleep in complete Darkness
  3. Commit to a  regular meditation practice as this will develop and enhance your pineal gland
  4. Yogic practices are very potent methods for awakening the Pineal Gland. Inversions are particularly helpful as they increase blood flow to the pineal while you are upside down. The practice of Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep meditation also helps to awaken the pineal gland.

I have been homeless for quite some time(15+ years) in America, and would love to implement so many practices/lifestyle changes to promote a healthy long life and spiritual awakening on many levels but find it almost impossible with the little resources available when I such a situation as I am. There are many obstacles and it is a constant battle every moment of every day to overcome homelessness, feed my spiritual self. My body as it is takes the brunt of just trying to survive with the different toxins and chemicals in the environment and foods and my enlightenment therefore is stifled. I feel like at this point of my life I should be much further along my road to ascension. Honestly, illegal drugs also play a 0art in my life too

So, I’ve been using magic mushrooms every 2-3 weeks. Tolerance is so high now that a dose of 10 grams does almost nothing. No more introspective thoughts, no closed eye visuals, just some mild euphoria. Could this be because my pineal gland is burned out due to being over activated. Will decalcification bring back the magic?

I never asked that man to die for my sins so it doesn’t make sense to me why I should worship him and be afraid if I don’t. Yoga and Buddhism is about taking care of ourselves and awakening our minds so we can in turn take of others and our planet. It’s not about worshipping anyone or trying to make others take on our beliefs. Your hatred for Buddhism is a perfect example of how the close mindedness of Christianity creates judgement and hatred towards others and continues to draw us apart. When really we’re all stuck on the same rock floating through space together and whatever beliefs or practices we take on as individuals shouldn’t change the way we look at each other.

The most effective food that helps detoxify the mind and body is garlic tea. It activates opening of the pineal gland and does many more good stuff to body that nothing else can be compared to. Garlic tea opens up all chakras and cleanses out not only digestive tract but also makes one highly focused and oriented with their social life and companions. It boosts up seratonin levels and makes you feel positive. It beautifies the body (hair, skin, eyes, weight loss, nails, teeth), and makes people self confident and HAPPY! For those that are interested, please try and see. I agree that eating garlic has a totally different and completely opposite effects on body that I don’t recommend at all.

I also liked the example about Muslims’ Morning prayers given to opening of the third eye and detoxification process of the soul. That is very true. However, Muslims are generally confused about who they worship and they are extremely focused on their physical movements rather than spiritual connection they must establish with God during prayers. In fact, prayer is called Salat in Arabic, which means ‘Making contact’. I am from Turkey and 95 % of our people here does not make any contact with God simply because they don’t know what the prayers mean and they basically don’t even know what they are articulating before God. Most of them even worship prophet Mohammad versus God, which is a terrible sin. Their third eye is all wrapped up very nicely that they can’t reach any spiritual state. For those minority of Muslims that do make proper contact, the results are very different. Third eye is fully engaged in ones awareness and it’s not limited to prayer sessions. Of course it is peaked during prayers but the opening of the third eye helps ones intuitions and awareness throughout the period between prayers.

What I found interesting that obviously no one else even noticed. The chemical compounds that cause the calcifications of the pineal gland. Some of these chemicals can be found in the atmosphere of Jupiter, I believe it was. There is also a layer of breathable oxygen. The clouds of Jupiter have ammonium chloride if I’m not mistaken and also magnesium and calcium can be found in the clouds of Jupiter as well.

LOL…it makes sense that ignorant people would blast in a written format their complete ignorance proving that their calcified pineal glands will keep them in the neanderthal minds.

But, the correlation of the chemical compounds makes me wonder if our meditations should be to heal Jupiter and remove those chemical compounds that cause calcification of the pineal.

I’ve been sleeping with the following video playing throughout my sleep:

It’s amazing to think that we may be in the universe within the God Jupiter. Healing Jupiter should be a meditation goal.

I came here expecting some legit science, oh boy was I wrong. I see people believe everything these days. There is a reason scientific studies exist, so you don’t believe crap. Can someone please explain how rubbing turmeric on your forehead, which somehow has to pass through the effing skull can be more effective than ingesting it, especially with piperine to pass the blood brain barrier… I guess I will find my information on improving effectiveness of the pineal gland somewhere else. Good god people…

Some nasty comments over a physical gland in the body…. It absolutely nothing to do with religion except I would suspect this is what was used when the deciples had visions….You really have to be a sensitive person in the first place….. Artists do this all the time… And I sure most of you have and just don’t know it…If you’ve ever. FELT MUSIC, BEEN MOVED BY A PAINTING… IMAGINED ANYTHING…. Where do think that came from? This gland has the same rods and cones as your eyes…The brain is super complex and has send signals through countless pathways just so you can do this…

I’ve just researched EDTA tabs and it says, quote.” EDTA is safe when used as a prescription medicine, as eye drops, and in small amounts as a preservative in foods. EDTA can cause abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, low blood pressure, skin problems, and fever. … Too much can cause kidney damage, dangerously low calcium levels, and death.“
You are suggesting 1-6 tablets!

Read up on science. Pineal gland has nothing to do with dmt or other psychoactivity in the brain except normal melatonin production.

I have many third eye art works that one can meditate on. Some are Buddha artworks and some feature images with the goddess. I also have sacred geometry artworks that are merged with the beauty of nature. These may also help you with the awakening of your third eye. Take a moment and check out this third eye art
