Foods That Can Help Feed The Pineal Gland

By Nwenna Kai

Our pineal gland otherwise known as our master gland or the gland that governs over our third eye is the center of psychic awareness in the human mind. It is about the size of a pea and sits inside a cave located behind the pituitary gland. It naturally produces a hormone called melatonin which regulates human daily body rhythms that deal directly with the day and night cycles. Developing and expanding the function and the energy of your pineal gland is extremely important as it affects every system in your body physically and it has the potential to determine the expansion or the contraction of your psychic awareness, consciousness, and experience.

Sunlight is extremely important for the pineal gland and yes sunlight is a form of food as food is any substance that nourishes the body. Sunlight can be taken in and digested through the eyes, skin, hair, nose hairs, and ears and should be consumed for at least 30 minutes a day. To fully engage the pineal gland, sunlight should be taken in through the pupils.

Seaweed vegetables that are sun-dried by the sun contain high amounts of vitamin D, many vitamins in the B-vitamin family and iodine. Those vegetables include and are not limited to kombu, arame, wakame, dulse, nori, etc.

Dark leafy greens like our kale, turnip greens, mustard greens, bok choy, collard greens etc are extremely nourishing for the pineal gland as this gland absorbs the properties of the green color of the vegetables and properly distributes them to the appropriate systems of the body so that the body is thoroughly nourished.

Consuming meats including fish that has high amounts of mercury, carbonated beverages, fluoride in our water and our toothpaste and access to smog negatively affect the pineal gland and can block its ability to function properly. When you consume meat from an animal, you are ingesting the DNA of that animal and therefore taking on the negative and positive experiences of an animal which could interrupt the ability of the pineal gland to take on its own psychic awareness blueprint of the individual.

The proper foods can positively affect your pineal gland but you can also activate your pineal gland by eating more of a raw foods, vegan, or vegetarian diet, running an ozone machine in your home to clean up the air in your home, and drinking filtered water. As much as the pineal gland needs sunlight, it also needs to produce enough serotonin to be activated so that it can increase its psychic awareness therefore serotonin is produced when the brain is asleep and therefore sleeping in a very dark room is extremely nourishing for the pineal gland as well. Foods that produce serotonin are almonds, bananas, hot peppers, rice, potatoes, and black-eyed peas and when consumed can also nourish and feed the pineal gland as well.

    could you please post sources? Thank you!

  • Jegan

    Excellent information for each and everybody. I will follow your advice.

  • Allenda

    Insightful article, however, ozone machines are not good to have running while someone is in the home or business…they can cause respiratory distress, esp. for those with asthma. Much research substantiates this. Our daughter’s asthma intensified when we owned one. Please do your research before recommending ozone indoors.

    The Pineal gland is not the master gland….that is the Pituitary.

  • Good article except the part about the Meat consumption. Meat in no way interferes with the activity of the pineal gland. What vegans don’t realize is that humans are Omnivores. Nature has set things up that way and once we stray from the natural way, we become unhealthy. The idea that picking up the animals DNA in any way interferes with our own a negative way, is wrong. We are All One Thing and those whose Third eyes are active, have learned this. Also what Vegans don’t seem to realize is that Plants contain the same Life… the same Consciousness as animals, only on a higher Frequency. Plants feel, communicate and actually have a higher degree of Compassion than animals. However there is a common misconception that becoming Ungrounded and spaced out, as most Vegans are, is somehow the activation of the Pineal gland, which it is not. Better to choose a diet that feeds the whole body… an omnivore diet as nature intended. Centuries ago when the masses of humanity were centered in the lower chakras we made a rule about refraining from meat…like sweats, fasts and certain drugs, this disconnected folks enough for the kundalini to rise, and this mistaken idea has been maintained to this day by certain groups. The problem is more people are centered in their heads now, very mental and ungrounded, and a Vegan diet only makes this worse. Balance is the key, not unhealthy extremes. Do what nature intended and your pineal gland will open when you are at the proper stage of evolution to deal with a whole new perspective. Plants are as Alive and full of the same life as animals, Nature requires that life moves from one thing to another, and it set it up so that Meat and vegetables and fruit were the ideal diet for humans. To be in Balance, we have to be in balance with Nature’s plan…when we involve our heads, and emotions in our dietary decisions, rather than our intuition…we become un well.

      I agree that meat is natural to eat for us just as plants, only thing to pay attention to is the amount and quality I would say.

    • Me

      I completely disagree with you. I don’t believe humans are meant to be omnivores. Our teeth are that of vegetarians. When animals are murdered they release a toxins into their bloodstream. All animals do hold cellular memory. I have actually witnessed people become more passionate, compassionate and empathetic after becoming vegetarians for health reasons. Plants; yes, also have feelings and cellular memory. But they are full of nourishing prana. You gently puck the fruits and vegetables from a plant, not viciously murdering it. It does not release toxins during the process. As far as a vegan diet increasing ungroundedness?? Working in a garden being in nature around plants is one of the most grounded things you can possible do. Murdering an animal is an act that is not only ungrounding but disturbs your natural peaceful energy patterns. I can only imagine if we were still gathering our own food and not shopping at the grocery store many, many, more people would naturally be vegetarians.

        our teeth, + other characteristics, are that of omnivores. ………………………………………………………………we have both carniverouse, and vegeterian characteristics. = omnivores

        • Hengli

          human trully omnivorian, then human can eat both plants and meat right?

          in reality we can see that
          eat only meat bring cardiovascular disease in human body

          eat only vegan, bring healty body without disease

          that is the reality than our body react better with natural food ( vegan )

      • George

        Agree. Humans can eat meat, animals who eat plants have the eyes close to the ears on the side of the face. Animals who chases prays have their eyes in front of the face, to run after the pray.

        The amount of meat is other thing. 3 times a week a portion of the size of your hand is enough.

        Be sure to eat alot of green and some suplements and frecuent doctor check up if you go only for greens!

  • Charlie

    Its the “Third Eye Chakra”. Along with a healthy diet, it is meditation that opens the pineal gland at which the most notable symptom is a strong conscientiousness of all those around you- every where. Also, yes, the basic awareness of typical psychic abilities- to different extents or another depending on many individual circumstances. Wish I could better explain.

  • Mila

    Thank you Faye, Allenda and Sara. We need to be careful what we ingest from the ‘alternative & esoteric” offering on the Net. I’m all for these things, definitely, but I love it when they are corroborated by facts and sometimes just common sense. It’s so much more accessible for everyone that way.

    And btw, what does “…could interrupt the ability of the pineal gland to take on its own psychic awareness blueprint of the individual.” mean, exactly? Mmm. Meta-text is one thing and has its place, but in this case, it feels like BS attempting to baffle my brain.

  • christopher

    Interesting claims but not a lot of substantiation. Is this psychically intuited?

  • Would you mind providing sources or any neurochemical report on the development of neuronal networks on the pineal gland? We are trying to stop feeding quacks!

  • Nick Dreamer

    No mention of dimethyltryptamine production via pineal gland?

  • is eating people allowed??

  • María

    Thank you for such a good information about the pineal gland protection and feeding it.

    Years ago, about fifty years, my researches at the British Reading Room in England realised that the Pineal gland was the intermediary, between the physical and the psychic world, but being it to be the master gland of the Endocrine system, and science knew very little about the endocrine system except what the ancients told them about it, very little concentration was placed on that gland, even today what I read about it , seem to me that very little is known about that gland..
