“I have been challenging our DHB/Council to stop putting fluoride in our water for the past 4 years because as a natural health practitioner,  I have seen patients who have suffered from fluoridated water. Unbeknown to me at the time I was growing a pineal tumour (PPTID) which eventually blocked the flow of CSF fluid from the third ventricle. The blockage has been fixed and I am currently supporting my immune system to shrink the tumour. I live in the country and have had exposure to fluoridated water for over 20 years when I was living and working in Wellington and Havelock North however I was given fluoridated tablets from 5 months old to mid childhood. Jennifer Luke’s work shows fluoride accumulates in the pineal gland and I believe the fluoride that accumulated in my pineal gland has contributed to this tumour. I now avoid all fluoride to give my body the best opportunity to detox what has accumulated over the years. It is tragic that children and adults are still being exposed to fluoride through drinking water.”
