Infrared on your forehead

Why NEVER let yourself be temperatures with infrared on your forehead!!!

From a nurse:

I’m really worried. I have started implementing the new protocols in force. One of my new duties is to take and record each person’s temperature. I aim for the center of their forehead with my thermometer-shaped gun, pulling the trigger, waiting for the beep and recording the temperature. I always apologize to the person before moving on! After doing this a dozen or more times, I suddenly realized:

Are we being disensitized to focus on the head and do we also cause potential health problems by directing an infrared radius to the pineal gland? So I started taking the temperature on my wrist, which turned out to be more accurate as forehead is cooler than the wrist and the results differ more than one degree in some cases.

I went to a mall and people stood in line to get their temperature taken by an employee who clearly wasn’t a doctor and wasn’t well educated on how they execute this procedure correctly. Many were shocked when it was up to me and I grabbed the gun pointed at my forehead and pointed it back at my wrist. I spoke soft but firmly and told the employee that an infrared thermometer should never be pointed at anyone’s forehead, especially babies and young children. In addition, basic knowledge about how to read someone’s temperature carefully, i.e. putting a thermometer on the wrist or elbow fold is much more accurate and much less harmful.

It was very disturbing for me to observe children getting used to seeing an object in the form of a gun aimed at their foreheads and without any adulterous reaction from the adults as if this were normal and acceptable.

As a medical professional, I refuse to focus directly on the pineal gland located directly in the centre of forehead, with an infrared beam. Most people agree, however, to experience this multiple times a day! Our pineal glands need to be protected because it is crucial for our health both now and in the future.

The pineal gland is a small pine-shaped gland from the endocrine system. A structure of the brain diencephalon, the pineal gland produces the hormone melatonin. Melatonin affects sexual development and sleep wake cycles. The pineal gland consists of cells called pinealocytes and nervous system cells called glial cells. The pineal gland connects the endocrine system to the nervous system in which the nervous signals of the sympathetic system of the peripheral nervous system turn into hormone signals. Over time calcium deposits in the pineal and their accumulation can lead to calcification among the elderly.

Function

The pineal gland is involved in various functions of the body including:

  • Secretion of the hormone melatonin Regulation of endocrine functions.
  • Conversion of nervous system signals to endocrine signals
  • Causers sleepiness
  • Influences sexual development
  • Influences immune system function
  • Antioxidant activity

Ask yourself: Is it ever wise to put an infrared laser light on the pineal gland?
