Autoregulation with maintained RBF and GFR means that also the filtered load and the sodium excretion is maintained during sleep and variations in daily activities. See glyphosate link in the previous Environmental Assaults section. The contents of this research resource are derived mainly from observed scientific phenomena as well as some well-founded speculation. DNA is capable of performing thousands of different tasks, yet in the matrix of the body the DNA in each specific cell performs a discrete task. Heaven, the Beyond, too, is a vast reality peopled with tens of thousands of tribes and localities — many of which have been described by artists, mystics and fantasy and science fiction writers throughout the ages. Inulin is uncharged and not bound to proteins in plasma. If DMT predominates, then there must be evidence of these inspired encounters, and there is plenty — in the writings and prophesies of religious mystics and savants.
The pineal gland's production of melatonin varies both with the time of day and with age; production of melatonin is dramatically increased during the nighttime hours and falls off during the day, and melatonin levels are much higher in children under age seven than in adolescents and are lower still in adults. Melatonin apparently acts to keep a child's body from undergoing sexual maturation, since sex hormones such as luteotropin, which play a role in the development of sexual organs, emerge only after melatonin levels have declined.
This hypothesis is supported by the fact that children with tumors of the pineal gland often reach sexual maturity unusually early in life, presumably because the pineal's production of melatonin has been hampered. Melatonin also seems to play an important role in regulating sleeping cycles; test subjects injected with the hormone become sleepy, suggesting that the increased production of melatonin coincident with nightfall acts as a fundamental mechanism for making people sleepy.
With dawn the pineal gland stops producing melatonin, and wakefulness and alertness ensue. The high level of melatonin production in young children may explain their tendency to sleep longer than adults.
In mammals other than humans melatonin possibly acts as a breeding and mating cue, since it is produced in greater amounts in response to the longer nights of winter and less so during summer. Animals who time their mating or breeding to coincide with favorable seasons such as spring may depend on melatonin production as a kind of biological clock that regulates their reproductive cycles on the basis of the length of the solar day. When activated, the pineal gland becomes the line of communication, with the higher planes.
The crown chakra, reaches down, until its vortex touches the pineal gland. Prana, or pure energy, is received through this energy center in the head. With Practice, the vibration level of the astral body is raised, allowing it, to separate from the physical.
When a correct relationship is established, between personality, operating through the pituitary body, and the soul, operating through the pineal gland, a magnetic field is created. The negative and positive forces, interact and become strong enough, to create the 'light in the head. Astral Travel, and other occult abilities, are closely associated with the development of the 'light in the head'.
After physical relaxation, concentration upon the pineal gland, is achieved, by staring at a point in the middle of the forehead. Without straining the muscles of the eye, this will activate the pineal gland and the 'third eye'. Beginning with the withdrawal of the senses and the physical consciousness, the consciousness is centered in the region of the pineal gland. The perceptive faculty and the point of realization, are centralized in the area between the middle of the forehead and the pineal gland.
The trick is to visualize, very intently, the subtle body A "popping sound" may occur at the time separation of the astral body, in the area of the pineal gland. Visualization exercises, are the first step, in directing the energies in our inner systems, to activate the 'third eye'. The magnetic field is created around the pineal gland, by focusing the mind on the midway point, between the pineal gland and the pituitary body. The creative imagination visualizes something, and the thought energy of the mind gives life and direction to this form.
Intuition is also achieved, through 'third eye' development. Knowledge and memory of the astral plane, are not registered in full waking consciousness, until the intuition becomes strong enough. Flashes of intuition come, with increasing consistency, as the 'third eye' is activated to a greater degree, through practice.
The pineal gland, corresponds with divine thought, after being touched by the vibrating light of Kundalini. Kundalini starts its ascent, towards the head center, after responding to the vibrations from the 'light in the head. The 'third eye,' or 'Eye of Siva,' the organ of spiritual vision, is intimately related to karma, as we become more spiritual in the natural course of evolution.
As human beings continue to evolve, further out of matter, on the journey from spirit to matter At certain brain wave frequencies, a sense of "ego boundary" vanishes. In the "theta" state, we are resting deeply and still conscious, at the threshold of drifting away from or back into conscious awareness.
As the brain enters deeper states, our consciousness is less concerned with the physical state, our 'third eye' is active, and separation becomes natural. Seat of gods This pineal gland is activated by Light, and it controls the various bio-rhythms of the body.
Research Retinal research, done with hamsters, demonstrates another center for melatonin production. Located in the retina, this center implies Biologists found, that they could throw the retinal rhythms They also found, that they could set and reset the retinal clock, even when the SCN was destroyed.
The retinal clock, produces stimulates the production of? Researchers are now looking for the exact location s of this clock, in the human eye, and expect to find it. No one yet knows, what the separate clock is for, or how it relates to the SCN.
In some lower vertebrates, the Epiphysis Cerebri - Pineal Gland, has a well developed eye - like structure; in others, though not organized as an eye, it functions as a light receptor.
In lower vertebrates, the pineal gland has an eye like structure and it functions as a light receptor and also is considered by some, to be the evolutionary forerunner of the modern eye. The gland weighs little more than 0. The gland is large in children and begins to shrink, with the onset of puberty. It appears to play a major role in sexual development, hibernation in animals, metabolism, and seasonal breeding.
In humans, it affects circadian rhythms, sleep patterns melatonin levels increase at night and is implicated in seasonal affective disorder. The abundant melatonin level in children, is believed to inhibit sexual development.
When puberty arrives, melatonin production is reduced. You can also make tea from alfalfa leaves or take as a tablet. This herb can be a powerful galactagogue and is often taken along with a blend of fenugreek and other herbs. Do not use it in its fresh format as it is considered toxic; use only commercially prepared dry leaves for tea or capsules.
These herbal supplements are readily available online or at your local health food store. Talk to your doctor or lactation consultant before taking any supplements, particularly if you have allergies or are taking any prescription medications.

Fenugreek There are many common herbal supplements available that have been shown to be effective for increasing your milk production.
Blessed Thistle This plant has been used as a medicine for hundreds of years, and has been shown to increase milk supply. Alfalfa A type of pea, alfalfa has a mild effect on increasing milk supply and is often used in combination with fenugreek.
