The Pineal Gland by Ms.Shankar

The Pineal Gland

Located in the middle of the brain is a small gland called the Pineal Gland. This gland has been called “House of the Soul”, and it has been referred to as such for thousand of years. Initially, modern science believed that the Pineal Gland was a completely nonfunctional gland in the body or that its functions were not understood. It was thought that the pituitary controlled everything in the body. Modern science has changed its mind since discovering that the Pineal Gland releases many substances that direct the pituitary in its function. It was only after the 1960’s that scientists discovered that the pineal gland is responsible for the production of melatonin, which is regulated in a circadian rhythm (the body’s time clock). Melatonin is a derivative of the amino acid tryptophan, which also has other functions in the Central Nervous System. The production of melatonin by the pineal gland is stimulated by darkness and inhibited by light. You don’t have to be a scientist to do this technique, but you should know that the Pineal Gland is located exactly in the center of the brain; directly down from the crown a directly back of the third eye. Inside the Pineal Gland is where you will witness the Master Cell.
