Does serotonin affect spirituality?

Antidepressants work by increasing levels of the
neurotransmitter serotonin. But 50% of the serotonin is
metabolized by the pineal gland. What is the pineal gland?
It is the master gland of the body known as the “seat of
the soul” or our connection to higher, spiritual thoughts.
In Eastern religions it is known as the Third Eye and is
located right in the center of the brain.

The question we need to ask is that if the Pineal gland is
overloaded with large amounts of serotonin produced by
these drugs, does it interfere with that spiritual
connection? According to patients using these drugs it
does! They continually report that they can no longer feel
God. One perfect example that comes to mind is that of
Elizabeth Bush, the 14-year-old girl who shot her best
friend at the private Catholic school they attended.

Elizabeth’s hero in life was Mother Theresa. Elizabeth
planned to devote her life to God and become a nun. So how
did she go from that point to a charge of attempted murder
almost overnight? I called her attorney when this happened
and told him what happened was likely the result of the use
of one of these antidepressants. He did not show much
interest, but said he would check. Then the following week
Elizabeth was interviewed on 20/20 where she made the
statement that she could “no longer feel God anymore
