Pineal Gland and Light

Light Deprivation and Pineal Gland
An imbalance of melatonin interferes with the body’s circadian rhythms, (sleep cycle), and may result in light deprivation disorders, which may contribute to depression, oversleeping, weight gain, fatigue, irritability and sadness. Our artificial lifestyles may contribute in a reduction of melatonin secretion. Melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland. Most of us spend the majority of our day working indoors under artificial  light then rush home to spend more time indoors to read, watch television, use the computer, etc. These activities deprive us of natural light that assist us in a healthy melatonin level secretion. Natural light must be absorbed through the eyes without the use of sunglasses for short duration of time. There is consensus stating that exposure to natural light for a minimum of 30 to 60 minutes per day, early mornings may be adequate for proper pineal function.

The following symptoms may indicate light deprivation :
Carbohydrate cravings
Difficulty concentrating
Low energy
Reduced libido
Social withdrawal
Trouble sleeping
Weight gain

Symptoms of an Under-active Pineal:
Environmental stresses affect Pineal function, affecting overall body alertness, temperature levels, and hormone operation. Stresses that affect Pineal function include unusual light and dark rhythms, radiation, magnetic fields, nutritional imbalances, temperature swings, high altitude, and overall daily stress patterns.

Symptoms may show in the following:
Menstrual irregularities
Mood swings
Excess worry
Irrational fear
Seasonal affective syndrome
Irregular sleeping
Paranoia or fanaticism
Sodium or potassium imbalance
Nightmares/vivid dreams
Inability to think clearly or be in present moment

Natural Corrective Measures:
Stress management techniques, such as prayer or meditation
Daily minimum doses of natural light exposure
Massage the third eye area, located in the slight indent between the eyes on the forehead. Massage for 30 seconds.
Foods high in potassium, selenium, iodine, zinc, 5htp and spirulina
Reduce or eliminate the synthetic chemical fluoride in drinking water
Regular breaks from computers, TV’s, artificial lighting etc
Spend regular time in the woods or parks away from power lines and turn your cell phone off.
Keep all electrical devices at least 3 to 5 feet away from your bed
Sleep in complete darkness as it stimulates the pineal gland to release melatonin
Maintaining balance of the Pineal Gland assists your body on all levels physiologically, mentally and spiritually. Nurture and care for this marvelous gland and tap into your greater potential.

Rodent experiments suggest that when old rodents are implanted with a pineal graft from a young rodent the old rodent begins to exhibit signs of turning the clock backwards.
Old rodents becomes more energetic, eyes become sparkly, fur becomes shiny and other symptoms associated with being a young rodent are exhibited.

There is a bible reference in Genesis 32:30 
“And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”
Some bible scholars believe that the bible “Peniel” and the human pineal gland are the same reference.
