Between the eyebrows, in the center of the brain is a pea sized endocrine gland that is responsible for spiritual sight and elevated mood. Known commonly as the third eye, or the seat of the soul, the pineal gland plays an important role in our understanding and comprehension of the cosmic world around us. When functioning at optimal health, it is also responsible for the production of serotonin derivative melatonin, which helps us sleep, dream, and follow consistent circadian cycles, we wake with the sun, we sleep in night. It also makes DMT, the Spirit Molecule, that is excreted during REM state of dreaming, meditation, during birth and at the end of life.
This tiny pine cone shaped gland nestles in-between the two hemispheres of the brain and even has photosensitive cells much like the retina in our eyes. Years of drinking fluoridated water, homogenized milk with added vitamin D, a low fat diet, sugar and refined carbohydrates and GMO processed foods can wreak havoc on the tissues of the body, disrupting the delicate balance of minerals needed to maintain health.
The result is too much calcium in our blood, which, when unbalanced, can accumulate in our soft tissues. The pineal gland calcifies; our bones and teeth weaken, our arteries become coated with calcified plaque, our blood pressure rises, we can’t sleep at night, and we are depressed, eventually, if we don’t develop heart disease or stroke, we get Alzheimer’s or dementia, all caused by an imbalances in our modern diet and a lack of vitamin K2.
If you have never heard of K2 and its critical role in your health and wellbeing, you aren’t alone. Vitamin K2 has been virtually eliminated from our modern American diet, a tragic and arguably deliberate way to obliterate our spiritual awareness, make us chronically sick, depressed, and dependent on a healthcare system that continues to fail us.
Within the last 150 years the industrialization of agriculture has transformed our modern diet and substantially impacted our health. I am part of the generation that saw the mass fluoridation of public water and grew up eating genetically modified foods. I got my first cavity a year after the fluoride was added to our water supply.
To better understand why K2 disappeared from our modern diet, you need to understand where this valuable little powerhouse of a vitamin comes from. Unlike vitamin K1 that is found in leafy green plants, vitamin K2 comes from milk, egg yolks, meat and cheese from the animals allowed to graze on tall, fast growing, and green pasture. Cows and chickens eating a diet rich in green grass produce K2 in their milk fat and egg yolks. K2 is also found shellfish, organ meats, and fermented foods.
Visit any modern industrialized farm these days, and you will not find cows on pasture or chickens off roaming the land. You’ll see animals in stalls, without sunlight, being feed GMO corn and grain, or worse, animal byproducts. Lush green grass was removed from the industrial livestock diet, and thus, K2 was removed from ours. It may take a little more work to locate quality sources of K2, but it is possible and you won’t break the bank in the process. An organic label alone is not assurance of being pasture fed. Go to your local farmers market, coop, or natural grocer and ask. Look for pasture feed labels, like “raised on green grass” “from animals allowed to eat grass” “finished on grass”. Kerry Irish Gold butter is a grass fed butter and available in all super markets.
By adding a high-quality grass fed butter to your diet, and eating it liberally, you add an array of amazing fat soluble vitamins. pasture and cultured pasture butter contains Medium chain fatty acids , vitamins, conjugated linoleic acid, and balanced omega-3 and omega-6 fats.
Vitamin K Conundrum
While humans can eat a lot of leafy green veggies to get K1, we cannot convert enough K1 into K2 to reverse calcification. Vitamin K2, also called menaquinone, is made by the happy bacteria that line your GI tract. K2 goes straight to your blood vessel walls, bones, and tissues. Vitamin K2, is found in fermented foods and in animal sources, sorry Vegans (I was one for many years) is more important than calcium for bone heath. It can also reverse tissue calcification. It maintains proper calcium levels by attracting calcium molecules and helping them bind to proteins so the calcium can be used by the body.
Unbalanced calcium will accumulate in soft tissues. Basically, K2 moves appropriates calcium throughout the body and places is where it can be readily utilized. Without enough vitamin K2, osteoporosis could occur. This same property also makes vitamin K2 useful for preventing cardiovascular disease and reversing calcification: the vitamin will attract calcium which has hardened in the pineal gland, arteries, tissues and cause it to break down.
