Why is fluoride bad for us? The primary reason is that it causes calcite crystals to form on the outside of the pineal gland, which is also called the third-eye. This is where our intuition comes in, and where we are able to see into other realms if we allow ourselves to see. There are actually rods and cones inside the pineal gland, just like inside the eyeballs!! An encrusted pineal gland prevents us from receiving messages from Spirit and even from our own Higher Selves and Souls.
The United States is the only developed country that adds fluoride to their water. Not only is the efficacy of fluoride to prevent dental caries highly in question, but fluoride is a known poison. It can do damage inside the body. “Fluoride is an endocrine disruptor that can affect your bones, brain, thyroid gland, pineal gland and even your blood sugar levels.” Dr. Mercola
Besides that, the FDA has never even approved fluoride supplementation! Crooked as they are, even they have not gone that far.
Getting rid of fluoridated toothpaste and mouthwash is not all that is necessary to avoid fluoride. Almost all filtered water still has fluoride in it. Spring water does not, unless it has been added in the bottling process. Ozarka adds fluoride to spring water and so does Fiji among many water companies. (Do a search if you want to know if your favorite spring water adds fluoride.)
Reverse osmosis water does not have fluoride but also has no other minerals, so it sucks minerals out of your body to achieve balance. Drinking reverse osmosis water is like drinking distilled water. You need to constantly re-mineralize. Yet this is a better option than drinking water that has fluoride in it – so long as you re-mineralize consistently.
You can buy a Berkey water filter and purchase their fluoride-removing filters to add to it. These filters sit on top of the kitchen counter, and among RVers they are universally known to be the best water filters available (in the USA, at least). People in Recreational Vehicles need to know which water filters are the best, as you may well imagine.
To take fluoride out of your fluoridated water at home, one method is to soak a few leaves of the Holy Basil plant in the water overnight. To take fluoride out of your body, tamarind is the best option. The older you are, the longer you need to take tamarind daily to get rid of the stored fluoride (up to 45 days), but this humble desert plant will take it out of your bones and teeth, even. And tamarind tastes great! I make a drink out of it with a little added coconut palm sugar. Tamarind is deliciously tart.
Now of all times we need to be detoxifying, and getting rid of fluoride should be at the top of the list.
