Avoiding Fluoridated Water

***PREFACE: I became so alarmed by the amount of Los Angeles fluoridated bottled water delivery companies in Los Angeles so I asked Alexa Ouaknine to investigate.  Fluoride calcifies and shrinks your pineal gland, (also called the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis or the "third eye") a small endocrine gland. The pineal gland produces melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and photoperiodic (seasonal) functions.  Considered the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans, the pineal gland has always been important in helping your intuition.  

Scientific evidence supports the possibility that our third eye, or pineal, was once our first eye.  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.

"The third eye controls the various bio-rhythms of the body. It works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland which directs the body's thirst, hunger, sexual desire and the biological clock that determines our aging process. When it "awakens", one feels a pressure at the base of the brain.  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."

You can begin to detoxify the pineal gland by avoiding fluoridated water and including spirulina. chlorella, oregano oil and wheatgrass in your diet. 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 through yoga and meditation.  -Jena Covello

Did you know that most water companies are adding fluoride to their water? Fluoride was originally added to the public water supply decades ago in an effort to improve overall dental health, though research has shown no such connection. In fact, overexposure to fluoride can lead to dental fluorosis, a discoloring of tooth enamel. About 70 percent of public water supplies in the United States contain fluoride, meaning intake and accumulation in the body is beyond our control. Fluoride is being added to the water of everyone. The matter has been up for debate for years, but evidence is finally showing that fluoride in drinking water is toxic and can pose very serious health threats.

For starters, extremely high levels of fluoride cause neurotoxicity in adults, negatively impacting memory and learning ability. Fluoride also damages the pineal gland, which located at the center of the brain, and when it’s messed with, it takes your intuition away. Pretty scary. The Harvard School of Public Health and the China Medical University in Shenyang have found that there are strong indications that fluoride also has an adverse effect on children’s cognitive learning development. It is one of the twelve industrial chemicals known to cause developmental neurotoxicity in human beings, and is not an essential component for human growth and development. This toxic chemical is found in water, food, air, soil, pesticides, fertilizers, dental products used in dental offices and at home, pharmaceutical drugs, cookware (non-stick Teflon), clothing, carpeting, and a number of other consumer items. This chemical is a huge health hazard when consumed regularly in large amounts, as much of America does.

Because we are inevitably exposed to fluoride, it’s important that people who drink bottled water regularly are educated and informed. Keep in mind that when drinking bottled water, it’s in your best interest to drink from a glass bottle or to use a home water filter service for the sink and shower. We recommend the Berkey A single plastic bottle of water can contain nearly 25,000 different chemicals, some of which contribute to hormone interference. The plastic causes cancer and is a xenoestrogen, a chemical found in our food and environment that, when ingested, interact with our body’s estrogen systems.
