Ah…the ever-sought-after fountain of youth—that elusive, fantastical, mysterious, alluring mistress. From Alexander the Great to Ponce De Leon, explorers and people of powerful repute throughout history have searched the earth for the fabled waters that would restore their bodies and free them from the clutches of physical degradation and death. Does this miraculous liquid exist? If so, how has it gone undiscovered all this time? Could it be in a most obvious place?
Yes, of course, it exists. But we will not find it in a garden in Peru or developed by research labs in the next decade or by ingesting the latest super-food. The fountain of youth flows within one of our most intriguing internal systems: the endocrine system. Let me pull back the curtain on this exquisite system that has been overlooked, mistreated, and misunderstood by both naturopathic and allopathic medicine for eons.
The endocrine system is both a physical and an energetic network of powerful centers that both support the body’s essential functions (like governing sleep patterns, procreation, and metabolizing sugars) as well as the lesser known functions (like raising consciousness and psychic seership of all kinds).
The endocrine system is made up of the ductless glands of the body that govern and secrete precious hormones essential to life. I will list them here in order from top to bottom: pineal, pituitary, thyroid, thymus, pancreas, adrenals, gonads. These hormones are secreted into the bloodstream. Most people have a dysfunctional endocrine system because modern living essentially paralyzes the proper function of these powerful but delicate glands. Regular emotional stress, unfit substances, and childhood immunizations put the adrenals into a hyper-attentive state, at times causing them to over-secrete adrenaline (the “fight or flight” hormone).
The pancreas, located above the adrenals, is the processor of sugars and starches. Since most modern food is starch-based (grain) and the key ingredient of most processed food is sugar in some form, you can see how the pancreas can quickly fall to ruin by the over-secretion of insulin and glycogen (think: diabetes, blood sugar imbalances, pancreatitis). The gonads (ovaries and testes) are also over-excited. The overload of inorganic estrogen that comes from a polluted, radiation-rich environment as well as common approaches to sexual activity and care of these glands create estrogen imbalances, ovarian cysts, painful menstruation, and ultimately ovarian cancer and infertility.
It’s no surprise that the fabled fountain of youth remains elusive to modern man. If our bodies are so corrupted and our brain activity so limited (in the brain, the pineal and pituitary glands of the endocrine system are greatly abused, to the point of outright dystrophy), how can we recognize our true nature? It is not until the body is sufficiently purified that this system can function well. Only then can we “re-member” ourselves.
FROM ANIMAL MAN TO SOLAR MAN
The electric aspect of man and the power of the ductless glands are the two major keys to elevating Animal Man to Solar Man. It all starts with a clean-celled, electrically conducting body (see “The Fountain of Youth, Part One”). From there, the energy starts to awaken and balance the endocrine glands. When these glands secrete properly, a natural, blissful sensation rings through the body. The cord of energy that runs through the very center of the spinal cord (the Sushumna) starts to carry the vital electricity through the body at a higher vibration, stimulating the energy centers (chakras) to spin at their optimum speeds—like whirling orbs or planets. Each chakra corresponds with a gland of the endocrine system, and the more our thoughts and actions align with life-generating truths, the more we are elevated to our solar state and enjoy the unparalleled vitality, both mental and physical, that comes with it.
If you apply this information little by little, you’ll enjoy much improved heath, vitality, natural beauty, and a degree of renewed youth. If you apply it as the most sincere, dedicated undertaking of your life, you will soar to even greater heights. There are no judgments—each of us must proceed in the way that speaks to us.
There is much more to be said on this subject and I encourage you to delve deeper if you’re interested. The information is available to all who wish to follow it. We should all know our potential. For what good is it to spend years in school if we are never educated about the highest life form on the planet—the human being! How long must we struggle under the illusion of education, consolidating facts and figures, while our minds and bodies waste away prematurely?
The Dark Ages of the last 1,600 years, which began with Constantine’s determination to destroy all traces of the ancient writings and teachings of the higher truths about the human body, have left humanity with little choice: The small fragments of knowledge in the alternative heath and spirituality community leave us hardly any better off than our mainstream contemporaries. But those among us who are courageous enough to live the higher truths have open access to them. If we are our brother’s keeper, we must offer our brother water, and let him decide whether or not to drink it.
