How to Decalcify the Pineal Gland 7

By Brian Rose

The pineal gland is a small pea-shaped endocrine gland, also known as the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, or conarium present in the brain of most vertebrates. The main function of the pineal gland is the production of serotonin-derived hormones known as melatonin that regulate sleep patterns. It also produces and regulates female hormones that have an impact on the menstrual cycle and fertility. Calcification of the pineal gland can occur in adults and even in children but is common in adults, with an estimation of 40 percent occurring in seventeen years of age. These calcifications can affect the functioning of the pineal gland needing decalcification to restore function.

What is the Function of Pineal Gland?

The pineal gland was once also called ‘the third eye’ due to its location deep in the brain and its connection with light. It is located in the brain area known as the epithalamus, where two halves of the brain join. Pinealocytes are the cells in the pineal gland that secretes the hormone melatonin in response to the light signals from the eyes to the pineal gland. The increased levels of melatonin at night in the dark make an individual sleepy. The other function of melatonin studied is its role in reproduction by regulating reproductive hormones.

The Many Potential Benefits of Cleansing Your Pineal Gland

Cleansing your pineal gland can bring you various potential benefits, including improved pain management and emotional balance. When you cleanse your pineal gland, you open the door to a range of advantages that can enhance your overall well-being. By undergoing this process, you may find that you are able to better manage pain, both physical and emotional. This can lead to a more balanced emotional state and even enhanced ability to cope with fear and discomfort. Furthermore, the cleansing of your pineal gland can help you tap into a sense of joy, spirituality, and release negative emotional patterns that may have been stored in your subconscious. Awakening your ‘third eye’ can contribute to a sense of happiness, decreased levels of depression, and an improved threshold for managing pain. In essence, cleansing your pineal gland has the potential to foster a healthier relationship with pain and offer you a pathway to a more balanced and harmonious inner life.

Role of Melatonin in Circadian Rhythm

The main function of melatonin secreted by the pineal gland is to regulate the sleep-wake cycles, also known as the circadian rhythm. The light during the daytime and the dark during night time dictates the circadian rhythm. Circadian rhythms are a 24 hours body internal biological clock that signals someone to feel tired, sleepy, feel alert, or wake up during different times of the day. The stimulus to release melatonin is the amount of light exposure, and its increased secretion during night or dark signifies its role in sleep. This secretion also varies with the changes in day length, such as in seasonal changes. Research showed that without pineal glands, animals are physiologically unable to adapt to seasonal changes.

Role of Melatonin in Reproduction

The other role of melatonin produced by the pineal gland is the suppression of gonadotropins (luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone) from the anterior pituitary gland. Studies have shown the role of melatonin in puberty, pregnancy, and gonadal function. Pineal secretes more melatonin in childhood to inhibit premature sexual development.

The Role of the Pineal Gland in Spirituality and “The Third Eye”

Cleansing the pineal gland is believed to have a direct connection to spirituality and the concept of the “third eye.” By purifying the pineal gland, individuals may open themselves up to a greater sense of expansion, not only in terms of experiencing joy in their lives but also in exploring spiritual realms and releasing deep-seated subconscious pain. This act is said to awaken the latent abilities associated with the ‘third eye,’ which is often considered a center of spiritual insight and intuition.

Some scientists may argue against the connection between the pineal gland and the third eye, dismissing it as unscientific or unproven. However, proponents of spiritual practices often reject these narrow viewpoints, suggesting that everything in the universe is interconnected. They argue that ancient civilizations possessed knowledge about the pineal gland and the third eye that has been lost over time but is worth rediscovering.

In essence, the act of cleansing the pineal gland taps into a broader sense of spiritual growth and connection to one’s inner self and the universe as a whole. It offers the potential to access ancient wisdom and unlock hidden spiritual gifts that are often associated with the concept of the third eye.

Calcification of Pineal Gland

A functionally intact pineal gland is necessary for optimal human health, but some conditions can affect its functionality. The calcification of the pineal gland has the highest rate among calcifications in all other organs of the human body. It was first observed as early as 1653 in humans. Pineal calcification jeopardizes melatonin synthesis and is also associated with neuronal diseases. Calcification can occur physiologically or pathologically. Whatever the cause, the functional capacity of the pineal can be restored by retarding premature calcification or by rejuvenating calcification.

Causes of Pineal Calcification

Like the rest of the brain, the pineal gland is not separated by the blood-brain barrier, which means that it has a rich supply of blood. So, it is not protected by the toxins or other substances present in the blood, putting it at risk of buildup of these substances leading to calcifications. It is thought that the risk of pineal calcification increases with age, but ironically it is also reported in neonates and young adults. Studies also suggest it to be a physiological process due to metabolic activity of the pineal gland leading to increased deposition of calcium. 

Metabolic activity

Some studies suggest that there are increased chances of calcium deposition with the higher metabolic activity of the pineal gland. In animal studies performed on mice concluded with higher amounts of pineal concretions in those exposed to less light than those exposed to a longer duration of light. It showed that if pineal produces less melatonin, fewer calcium concretions form.


With age, there is an increased incidence of calcium deposits in the pineal gland, proven by the presence of pineal calcifications and reduced production of melatonin in some age-related neurodegenerative diseases.

Chronic Medical Conditions

It is also suggested that certain chronic medical conditions also increase the chance of developing pineal calcifications, including:

●    Renal disease (chronic kidney disease)

●    Schizophrenia

●    Migraines

Environmental factors

It is seen that consuming water with a higher concentration of fluoride increases the incidence of pineal calcification. In 1990 Jennifer Luke, a British Scientist discovered a high concentration of fluoride in her subjects. Fluoride is commonly found in pesticides and municipal water, having the ability to accumulate in pineal more than any other body part.

Alcohol Consumption

Alcohol consumption has a significant impact on the pineal gland and overall health. Ethanol, the main component in alcohol, is classified as a Group 1 carcinogen and can cause disruption and dysregulation of hormones and tissues in the body. It directly affects the proper functioning of the pineal gland and thyroid, along with other organs.

One of the key ways alcohol impacts the pineal gland is by inhibiting the absorption of tryptophan, an essential amino acid. Tryptophan is crucial for the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep and wake cycles. Reduced levels of tryptophan in the brain lead to lower melatonin production, affecting the pineal gland’s ability to function optimally.

Furthermore, alcohol consumption can have a negative impact on overall happiness and joy. Chronic alcohol consumption can disrupt the delicate hormonal balance in the body, leading to mood disturbances and decreased well-being.

In conclusion, avoiding alcohol consumption is advisable as it can adversely affect the pineal gland, disrupt hormonal balance, and have detrimental effects on overall health and well-being.


Oxalates are a type of plant toxin that plants use as a defense mechanism against being eaten by animals. These compounds, such as oxalic acid, oxalic salt, and oxalate crystals, are primarily found in high concentrations in leaves and stems of various plants. Foods that are rich in oxalates include spinach, beetroot, beets, potatoes, almonds, certain teas, rhubarb, and soy products. To support the cleansing and healing of the pineal gland, it is advisable to reduce the intake of oxalate-containing foods. For accurate information and personalized guidance on managing oxalate consumption, individuals can refer to Sally Norton‘s book ‘Toxic Superfoods.’ It is important to exercise caution when seeking information online and rely on credible sources for a comprehensive understanding of the impact of oxalates on the pineal gland and which foods to avoid.

Effects of Pineal Calcification

Calcification of the pineal gland severely affects its secretion of melatonin, thereby causing all the symptoms that can result due to melatonin deficiency, and they are:

Disturbed Circadian Rhythm: sleep patterns are disturbed, sleeping too little or too much, feeling active or sleepy at unusual times, and not remembering dreams.

Headache: migraine or nocturnal headaches are common in pineal calcification, especially in women and older people. Nausea, vomiting, vertigo, and tremors can also be associated symptoms.

Changes in fertility: a study carried out in 2014 suggested that normal levels of melatonin are essential for fertility in females by regulating female hormones and menstrual cycle. 

Osteoporosis: it is studied that decline in melatonin and increased calcification of the pineal gland can increase osteoporosis risk.

Psychiatric Disorders: mood disturbances, anxiety, and depression are also seen among individuals with pineal gland calcification.

Neurological Disorders: calcification of the pineal gland is associated with the development of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and dementia. Studies have also shown the protective role of melatonin in Alzheimer’s disease as it prevents the formation of amyloid plaques.

The Importance of Decalcification 

Sleep is vital for the proper functioning of the human body, and calcification of the pineal can severely affect the quality of sleep. It leads to poor functioning, poor mental performance, poor concentration, and also makes an individual prone to other diseases. To maintain optimum health and functioning of the body, it is important to decalcify the pineal gland.

The Importance of Decalcification

How to decalcify Pineal?

To cleanse the pineal gland effectively, you can follow a series of steps that aim to reduce toxins and support its natural healing process. Start by eliminating processed foods from your diet and reducing oxalate-producing plants. Avoid alcohol and fluoride intake as these can disrupt the gland’s function. Incorporating iodine-rich foods and consuming citric acid can aid in breaking down oxalates. Additionally, trying foods like tamarind fruit may help reduce pineal calcification. By following these steps, you can promote the cleansing of the pineal gland, potentially leading to an increase in DMT production and a deeper connection with higher realms.

Effective decalcification of the pineal gland includes three steps:

1. Lifestyle changes 

To initiate the detoxification process, it is crucial to make specific dietary adjustments. This includes eliminating foods and factors that contribute to calcification, such as restricting the intake of fluoride and calcium-rich foods. Opting for a plant-based diet and reducing processed food consumption are key actions to prevent calcification. It is essential to steer clear of processed foods containing synthetic calcium compounds, which can lead to calcification. Moreover, certain foods may be treated with pesticides that elevate the risk of calcification.

In regions where public water is fluoridated, it is advisable to minimize fluoride exposure by opting for bottled water. Similarly, many toothpaste brands contain fluoride, so switching to fluoride-free alternatives is recommended for individuals susceptible to calcification. Careful consideration should also be given to calcium supplements, as some formulations may contain agents that promote calcification. Obtaining the recommended calcium intake from natural sources like kale, broccoli, and sesame seeds is beneficial. Supplementing with magnesium alongside calcium can help prevent calcium accumulation in the brain.

2. Removing the existing calcification in the pineal gland

If calcification symptoms are present, it is imperative to address existing calcification in the pineal gland. Utilizing specific foods or supplements known to aid in decalcification can help restore the gland’s functionality. Since calcification involves the accumulation of calcium or fluoride as well as toxins, detoxifying the pineal gland is essential to promote healing and optimal function.

3. Supplements and foods are shown to help the detoxifying pineal gland 

In addition to dietary changes and addressing existing calcification, certain supplements and foods have been identified to support the detoxification process of the pineal gland. Incorporating these elements into your routine can further enhance the healing and cleansing of the gland, preparing it for improved function and potential spiritual connection.


Turmeric has been seen as a beneficial food product in many medical conditions and to maintain optimum health. The active ingredient, curcumin, is considered neuroprotective and is known to reverse the damage caused by fluoride toxicity. It can be added to food or can be taken as a supplement.

Studies have proven tamarind to be an effective natural detox against sodium fluoride toxicity. Consumption of tamarind leaves alleviates fluoride deposition symptoms, and it also increases fluoride excretion from the body. A study also showed that a compound from tamarind could be used to remove fluoridate water.


Iodide is known for regulating thyroid hormones and is also a chelator (efficient remover) for heavy metals that otherwise can accumulate in the brain and body, leading to toxicity. It removes heavy metals like fluoride, bromide, aluminum, mercury, and lead from the body. To decalcify the pineal gland, iodine is an essential compound that can be taken by supplementation, among which Lugol’s iodine is common. If you want to incorporate iodine into your diet, then kelp and seaweed or algae-related foods are rich in iodine.

Fulvic Acid

Fulvic acid is a powerful detoxifying and decalcifying agent for the pineal gland. It also removes heavy metals from the body, thereby preventing their buildup in the body and brain.

Chaga Mushroom

Numerous scientific studies have proven the beneficial effects of the Chaga mushroom on the central nervous system and immune system. It is an excellent antioxidant and ant-viral and stimulates melatonin production from the pineal gland, also called “third eye activator.” The effective way to take it is in the form of tea.

Activator X (Vitamin K2)

Similar to Vitamin A, activator X is a fat-soluble substance. It is essential for growth, brain function, reproduction, and protection against calcification. It decalcifies the pineal gland by helping in the removal of calcium from the gland. It also directs calcium to the bones and teeth. Raw milk, grass-fed meat, organ meats are rich in activator X. organic ghee or grass-fed butter is also a good source of activator X.

Boron or Boric Acid

A study conducted in 1942 concluded boric acid as an antidote to fluoride. Boric acid is a commonly available form of Boron. You can take boric acid supplements or consume boron-rich foods to decalcify the pineal gland.

Citric Acid

Consuming citric acid, particularly in the form of lemon juice, can offer benefits for the pineal gland. Citric acid aids in the breakdown of oxalates, which can help flush out harmful substances from the body. However, it is important to proceed with caution when starting a low oxalate diet as the process of eliminating oxalates can lead to discomfort and strain on the kidneys. It is crucial to seek professional guidance to avoid potential complications and ensure a safe and gradual detox process. Consulting with experts like Wendy Budd can provide valuable support in this regard.

Ideal Environment

Maintaining the ideal environment is required for optimal functioning of the pineal gland. The pineal gland functions by the stimulus of light detected by the eyes, so to maintain proper functioning, light is an important factor. It is recommended to sleep in darkness because little light coming from any source can confuse the pineal gland in determining the time of the day. Nighttime light can be the reason for disrupting the quality of sleep. Caffeine must also be avoided close to bedtime because it can also affect the quality of sleep. Maintaining a proper sleep routine is essential to regulate circadian rhythm.


The pineal gland is a small gland in the middle of two brain hemispheres with the highest rate of calcification in the human body. It is essential for regulating circadian rhythm by releasing melatonin and is also important for female reproductive health. Pineal calcification can occur due to environmental factors or can also be due to some medical conditions. The affected individual firstly notices changes in sleep pattern that indicate improper functioning of the pineal gland, and the reason behind is calcification. One of the most common reasons for calcification is fluoride that can build up to toxic levels in the pineal, leading to calcification. Lifestyle changes, dietary changes, supplementation, and maintaining a healthy environment can decalcify the pineal gland and prevent further calcification in the future.
