What roles do pituatary and/or pineal glands play in psychosis, (if any)? Have researchers considered these glands in any way for hallucinations/delusions? Ancient texts & metaphysical books mention these two glands and an imbalance within them. If insurance companies now pay for accupuncture, meditation & yoga -- all which are thousands of yrs. old & previously labeled "whoo hoo" nonsense by the medical community-- why not check out the ancient texts on "chakra" points in the brain: both which correspond to pineal and pituatary glands. Supposedly, when these "chakra" points are inbalanced, then hallucinations/delusions happen.
