Biofield Energy Healing Based Vitamin D3: An Improved Overall Bone Health Activity in MG-63 Cell Line
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached

The potential of The Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing vitamin D3 and DMEM medium was investigated in human bone osteosarcoma cells (MG-63). The Test Items (TI) i.e. vitamin D3 and DMEM were separated into two parts. Bone health parameters were tested such as Alkaline Phosphatase enzyme (ALP) activity, collagen levels and bone mineralization. The Test Items (TI) i.e. vitamin D3 and DMEM medium were divided into two parts. The test samples received Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment by Karen Byrnes Allen and samples were defined as the Biofield Energy Treated (BT) samples, while the other parts of each sample were denoted as the Untreated test items (UT). Cell viability using MTT assay exhibited increased cell viability more than 71% with safe and nontoxic profile among test samples on MG-63 cell line. The level of ALP was significantly increased by116.4% at 50µg/mL in the UT-DMEM+BT-TI group, while 35.6%, 81.2%, and 47.9% at 10, 50 and 100 μg/mL, respectively in the BT-DMEM+UT-TI group. In addition, ALP level was increased by 42.3% and 90.6% at 10 and 50 μg/mL, respectively in the BT-DMEM+BT-TI groups as compared with the untreated group. The level of collagen was significantly increased by 10.5% and 110.1% at 0.1 and 1 μg/mL, respectively in the UT-DMEM+BT-TI group, while 22.6% and 190.6% at 0.1 and 1µg/mL, respectively in the BT-DMEM+UT-TI group as compared with the untreated group. In addition, BT-DMEM+BT-TI group showed a significant increased collagen level by 140.6% and 39.9% at 0.1 and 1 µg/mL, respectively as compared with the untreated test item and DMEM group. The percent of bone mineralization was significantly increased by 128.7% at 50 μg/mL, in the UT-DMEM+BT-TI group, while 34.1%, 154.7%, and 18.7% at 1, 10, and 50 μg/mL, respectively in the BT-DMEM+UT-TI group as compared with the untreated group. In addition, BT-DMEM+BT-TI group showed a significant increased bone mineralization by 105.7%, 78.1%, and 39.6% at 1, 10, and 50 μg/mL, respectively as compared with the untreated group. Thus, the study results concluded that The Trivedi Effect® Treatment would be the best alternative treatment for the maintenance of strong and healthy bones and quality of life. Further, it regulates the osteoblast function and improved the level of collagen, ALP, and calcium absorption in wide range of bone disorders along with wide range of adverse bone health conditions.

The objective of the current experiment was to evaluate the potential of Consciousness Energy Healing-based test items (Vitamin D3 and DMEM) on bone parameters. Both the TI were distributed into two individual parts. One part of each samples was received Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment by Eileen Mary Meagher and those samples were labelled as the Biofield Treated (BT) samples, while the other parts of each samples were denoted as the untreated test items (UT). Cell viability data showed more than 71% viable cells signifies a safe and nontoxic profile of test items on MG-63 cell line. ALP was significantly increased by 132.18% and 126.52% in BT-DMEM+UT-TI and BT-DMEM+BT-TI, respectively at 50 µg/mL; while 139.06% (at 0.1 µg/mL) in UT-DMEM+BT-TI compared to untreated. Collagen was significantly increased by 172.76% at 1 µg/mL in UT-DMEM+BT-TI, while 89.65% in BT-DMEM+UT-TI at 10 µg/mL than untreated. Additionally, collagen was significantly increased by 111.2% in BT-DMEM+UT-TI at 50 µg/mL, while 113.16% in BT-DMEM+BT-TI at 100 µg/mL than untreated. The percent of bone mineralization was significantly increased by 206.21%, 168.74%, and 224.82% in UT-DMEM+BT-TI, BT-DMEM+UT-TI, and BT-DMEM+BT-TI, respectively at 0.1 µg/mL compared with the untreated. In addition, percent of bone mineralization data showed a significant increased by 190.63%, 181.07%, and 245.41% in UT-DMEM+BT-TI, BT-DMEM+UT-TI, and BT-DMEM+BT-TI, respectively at 1 µg/mL than untreated. Moreover, at 10 µg/mL it was significantly increased by 129.44%, 111.76%, and 109.81% in UT-DMEM+BT-TI, BT-DMEM+UT-TI, and BT-DMEM+BT-TI, respectively at 10 µg/mL with respect to untreated. Based on the study outcomes it emphasized that Biofield Energy Treatment could regulates the osteoblast function, improves bone mineralization, and calcium absorption in wide range of bone disorders along with wide range of autoimmune diseases.

This module – Educational Evaluation and Testing – is intended to enable you have the ability to understand the principles and concepts of the different types of educational evaluation. This is introduction course, and therefore, you will not be expected to become an expert in educational evaluation and testing. However, you will be able to understand the processes of evaluation, measurement and testing in a better a manner. You will be able to plan and conduct evaluation and testing on the basis of sound principles and practices. By the end of the module, you will be able to understand the interconnections between/among curriculum, goals, objectives, testing and evaluation. You will also have new perspective on how to use evaluation results.

The module, Physical Chemistry 2, focuses on six (6) areas of physical chemistry important to many aspects of our lives: solutions, colloids, phase equilibrium, electrochemistry, nuclear and quantum chemistry. Solutions are often necessary to facilitate many chemical reactions that are important to life, and/or for industrial processes; while colloids find extensive applications in various chemical industries (e.g., in pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, paints, adhesives, cosmetics, inks and many other industrial products). The applications of electrochemistry are wide spread with great economic significance. A number of real life processes also involve electrochemical reactions, the knowledge of which allows us to understand certain chemical and biological reactions related to them. Rusting of iron, bleaching of stains and photosynthesis are examples of such life processes. Many substances exist in more than one physical state, the most common being solid, liquid and gas phases. Each of the phases has significantly different physical properties, knowledge of which can be used for our benefit in different circumstances. As you may or may not know, although the nuclei of many isotopes are stable, some are however unstable and will undergo what is known as a nuclear reaction. Such reactions although useful in certain applications, like electricity power generation and nuclear medicine, yet nuclear reactions could also be harmful and destructive as with its application in producing the atomic bomb- a weapon of mass destruction. Elementary particles (photons, electrons, neutrons, protons, etc) configure with the forces of nature to make all forms of matter. Thus, the internal structures of these particles determine the chemical and physical behavior of matter and in turn, influence the nature of their interaction with radiation. The constructive interpretation of this kind of reaction using quantum chemical and mechanical principles provide useful framework for their application in the development of modern technologies. Solar energy panels, automatic doors, elevators, pocket calculator and intrusion alarms are some of the products of processes related to quantum mechanical ideas.
