Next topic of discussion: Understanding of Pituitary gland / Agna chakra for treatment aspect
Gary Yuen: I've been studying the immune system and antiviral foods and herbs. All foods have an effect on the immune system and likely The pituitary gland. I don't know specifics but mstbe someone can help explain how it relates to the rest of the body and other organs.
What I've found thst improves immune function. Every food. Gut bacteria. So maybe that explains gavedukha and dal as having some antiviral function. Numerous foods: relatives of terminalia and phyllanthus, various vegetables, flowers, roots, barks like ficus religious, prunus, many hundreds of foods show an effect on the strongest viruses and someday it may be possible to treat all viruses. Who regularly consumes haritaki and all classical foods and herbs. Thst would be the way to have the strongest immune system. Guduchi alone is not enough. Is it possible to find answers by looking at the many hundreds of foods and herbs that show anti-HIV activity and work backwards?
Ayulink Ayurveda: Shirodhara is most common treatment approach for many psychosomatic condition, which is said that it affects the pituitary gland. By controlling or correcting pituitary functions, one can treat several disorders.

Croatia Branko Markovic: Pranayam like Nadhi shodan will help in functions of pituitary. Gotu kola is very good also. Being in oneself (conscious of thoughts, movements etc) will automatically trigger gland to function in more spiritual way, opening new experiences and perceptions.
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: The Ajna Chakra controls and energizes the pituitary gland, the endocrine glands and the brain to a certain extent. The eye and ear are energized by the Ajna Chakra. The Ajna Chakra influences the basic chakra or Mooladhara Chakra and is thus also responsible for the health of your skin.
Vd. Hardik bhatt: MEDICINE given by nose either oil based or water based directly effect on the pituatary gland. and controls the disease..
Vd Jigar Narsana: Some corelate the work of pituitary gland with karya of pran and udan vayu
Gary Yuen: Being in oneself. starting to look at Greek concepts of health. Goddess was hugeia, hygiene. The self was also psyche cosmos, atman Brahman, balance was isonomia (isonomics, nomos, manmade law like economics), ... mind is primary but perhaps inseparable from any part of the body.
Dr. Pritam Veer: Sixth Chakra (Ajna) Correspondences
Key phrases: Intuition, meditative and self-awareness, mental and emotional clarity, truth; combines knowing, acting, and feeling; balances and integrates “masculine” and “feminine” qualities. Physical location: The point between the eyebrows, center of forehead. Endocrine gland: Pituitary or pineal gland (light-sensitive; regulates sleeping and waking). Astrological link: Saturn, Day of the week: Saturday , Element: mahat, the essence of all other elements, Sense: Intuition, Sanskrit Derivation: ajna (order, command), Massage: Forehead, ears, sides of head between eyes and ears.Also, the third eye chakra is often called the dwelling place of the meditative faculty. It embodies the mantra hamsa, which is Sanskrit for “swan,” a revered bird that is said to be able to distinguish truth from untruth as it flies to places that ordinary people cannot reach. Just as no one can see electricity or microwaves, or just as a dog or deer can hear many sounds that no human ear can hear, the subtle internal hum of this mantra goes unheard by the many who live mostly in their lower chakras. But a master of this ajna chakra center who practices right livelihood can go beyond the limits of logical thought. By meditating on the sixth chakra and opening the third eye and mind to the universal qualities of the web of life that links all beings, a person stands on the threshold of the portal of divine oneness where he or she can become a paramahamsa—one who dwells in supreme consciousness.
Shirodhara- This is a simple, yet profound treatment that works specifically on balancing and stabilizing the activity of the mind. Warm, herbal oil is continuously streamed over the Ajna Chakra or Third Eye, taking the participant on a journey deep within. We all know the benefits of Shirodhara
Croatia Branko Markovic: In one marga they say if we meditate on the ajna and we are able to open it, then all lower chakras will be open
Dr. Vikas Sharma Punjab: Pituitary gland act like a vacuum cleaner that clean the strotas of shiro sthan.As we see when strotas of mastishk avrudh with dosha normal functioning disturb.
