How to Use Herbs to Detox the Third Eye


According to ancient tradition, when our energy centers, aka chakras, are out of balance, we can experience imbalalances. 

When the Third Eye is out of balance we can experience symptoms such as anger, selfishness, irritability and insomnia. 

What is the Third Eye Anyway?

Scott Jeffrey writes:

"Travel deep into the center of your brain, and you’ll find a pinecone-shaped gland. This tiny gland plays an essential role in how we sleep, perform, make decisions, and perceive reality."


According to the Golden Poppy: "The third eye is called Ajna in Sanskrit which means to know, to obey or to follow. Literally, ajna means ‘command’ or ‘monitoring center’.

It is the area of consciousness for the celestial body and relates to clear sightedness, inspiration, insight, intuition, telepathy, access to the Higher Self, the pineal gland, pituitary gland, brain, ears, eyes, nose, and the realization of your full potential.

A balanced third eye is crucial for seeing yourself, others, and any situation with truth and clarity. It is also important for your own mental processes to be clear and truthful.

As a tiny pea-sized mass in the center of the brain, the pineal gland produces the hormone melatonin which helps to regulate our sleep cycles and reproductive hormones."

"For thousands of years the pineal gland within our brains has been known as “the third eye,” also referred to as the ajna chakra. The third eye chakra, according to Hindu tradition, is responsible for conscience, spiritual consciousness, intuition and insight.

In her book “Awaken Your Third Eye,” Doctor Susan G. Shumsky writes that the pineal gland has been referred to in many different ways  in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, as well as in Druidic, Judaic, Islamic, Taoist, Mayan, Tibetan, Egyptian, Greek and Aboriginal cultures.

Common names that describe the pineal gland in ancient and modern times include “eye of Horus,” “all-seeing eye,” “mind’s eye,” “divine eye,” “sixth/ajna/brow chakra,” “third eye,” and “eye of God.”

French mathematician, writer and philosopher, Rene Descartes (1596-1650), wrote in his book “Treatise of Man”:

My view is that this gland [the pineal gland] is the principal seat of the soul, and the place in which all thoughts are formed.

Despite the importance and significance of the pineal gland, our modern lifestyles mistreat it. In particular, the fluoride present in our drinking water has been proven to calcify (or harden) this vital area of the brain — thus reducing its function."
