Fluoride Is Damaging Your Pineal Gland
By Lindsay Sibson
There are few things in life that I can say “I hate that” about.
But… you know that fuzzy feeling in your mouth that’s there when you first wake up? I HATE THAT.
My morning usually consists of chugging water before getting out of bed (to initially release myself of this sensation) and then I head to the bathroom to brush my teeth. Sounds like a standard morning routine, right? I never thought twice about these actions until I read an article about the dangers of FLUORIDE.
What is FLUORIDE?
Fluoride is a compound of fluorine (an element) that is added to water supplies and toothpaste in order to reduce tooth decay. It was originally added to water as a way to improve dental health – and has been used ever since its introduction right after World War II!
As with most new health ideas that are launched, there was a lot of hype and focus on only the benefits of fluoride, with little consideration of the RISKS consuming it posed.
Now, there is a bunch of research and information that shows the dangerous side effects of using fluoride – one of the side effects being its negative impact on the pineal gland.
The pineal gland is located in the center of the brain and is responsible for producing melatonin and regulating your sleep cycle. The pineal gland also helps your nervous and endocrine system communicate, which is very important, because these two systems work together to maintain a stable environment in your body (equilibrium/homeostasis).
BUT, when the pineal gland absorbs too much fluoride, its ability to properly function and do its job becomes problematic.
When fluoride impedes your pineal gland’s ability to produce melatonin, it can lead to problems such as weight gain, sleeping trouble and early aging. Too much fluoride in your system can lead it to calcify on your pineal gland and block its effectiveness – and the probability of this happening increases the older you get.
The scary truth is that much of the water supply in the USA is still fluoridated. Add in the additional exposure from toothpaste and other dental products and the fluoride overload can become toxic for your body!
The good news is that it is possible to detoxify your pineal gland – and protect yourself from future exposure.
There are two easy steps you can take to ensure you are promoting the best health for your pineal gland:
1. Avoid water with fluoride – Your best bet is to choose alkaline or distilled water and AVOID tap water.
2. Use fluoride-free dental products – There are several natural options that you can even try out, such as coconut oil.
Still not convinced to avoid fluoride? Here are 5 interesting facts to get you thinking:
1. Most developed countries do NOT fluoridate their water – The consumption of water with fluoride is greater in the USA than in the WHOLE rest of the world combined!
2. Fluoride negatively affects MANY tissues in your body (not only the pineal gland) – It also affects your bones, brain, thyroid and even your blood sugar levels.
3. Fluoridated countries do NOT have less tooth decay than non-fluoridated countries – So, what is the benefit then? The risks far outweigh any slight benefit it could have.
4. Fluoride is the only MEDICINE added to public water – Because it is added to water to prevent a disease (tooth decay), it is considered a medicine by the Food and Drug Administration.
5. Fluoride is NOT an essential nutrient – Need I say more?
