I was looking for an appropriate thread for my comments here. Hopefully this is.
I recently had a large amount of grey hairs on my head. It was more than half, in fact. Now, there are far fewer. I also haven't dyed my hair.
For 20 years I worked shifts, mostly night shift every 3rd week. That ages a person, quite a bit. In about its last 4 years, I would take melatonin at
least for the 1st 3 days of the night shift, and again for the 1st 3 nights after the last night of night shift. After ending shifts I often took it.
It was mostly to keep readjusting to sleeping nights. I still take it, but not so much.
Melatonin is a natural sleeping pill. The pineal gland ('3rd eye') secretes it. It can also be taken for jet lag - crossing many time zones. Now,
Melatonin is also anti-aging. It is said that in India there are people centuries old. But that is very much hushed up, in the west. They have large
amounts of melatonin in their blood. The pineal gland is also linked to spirituality. So, the more spiritually inclined one is, the more active it is.
Now, the main point I wanted to mention is that melatonin used to be freely available at health shops (at least here). Someone there said that only
after the age of 45 should one take it regularly. But now it's gone behind the prescription counter, with the Pharmacist trying to persuade one not
to buy it. They say things like it causes depression. (I think depression is mostly psychological. It never made me depressed. One would need to be as
spiritually inclined as one can, to handle it.) It has 80 to 100 times more melatonin than the body. (And so? It's a natural substance. I'd just
take half a melatonin now.) It completely throws one's sleeping pattern out. (Yeah, so take it before sleeping at night, when one usually sleeps.)
And so on. He also said he wouldn't touch it, and has a PhD in Pharmacy. (But how spiritual is he?)
What I reckon is really happening, is that the drug industry wants to control the world, and such like. Money orientated. In USA for instance, it is
said that by a few years time they want at least every 2nd person on prescription drugs. So, hush up the sleeping pill that's a natural substance,
and that really works. Same with other things that really work. Melatonin will more than likely become more and more difficult to obtain. Probably
eventually need to show an airplane ticket crossing some time zones, and just get a few.
