Colloidal Gold. - Bright Star Apothecary Complimentary Integrative & Alternative Medicine at Dragonfly Kingdom International Service Agency

Posted on June 22, 2021 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)
Colloidal gold is a suspension of gold particles in a fluid. In ancient times, it was originally used as a method of staining glass. It has also been used in Hindu Chemistry for various potions. In 1842, John Herschel invented a photographic process that used gold to record images on paper. This was known as Chrysotype, from the Greek word for gold. As you can see, gold has been used throughout centuries for many things.

The use of gold for medicinal and healing purposes came from Alexandria, Egypt. The Egyptians ingested gold for mental, bodily and spiritual purification. Gold has also been used to reduce dependency on alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and carbohydrates. Here at Purest Colloids, we believe in a better and healthier life. That is why we offer colloidal gold and other colloidal metals. We want you to feel your very best and life a life with the minerals and supplements you need to live healthy every day.

Effects of Meditation and Music-Listening on Blood Biomarkers of Cellular Aging and Alzheimer's Disease. - Dragonfly Kingdom Library/Spiritual Sports Medicine & Nutrition

Posted on June 22, 2021 at 7:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Abstract

Background: Telomere length (TL), telomerase activity (TA), and plasma amyloid-β (Aβ) levels have emerged as possible predictors of cognitive decline and dementia.

 

Objective: To assess the: 1) effects of two 12-week relaxation programs on TL, TA, and Aβ levels in adults with subjective cognitive decline; and 2) relationship of biomarker changes to those in cognitive function, psychosocial status, and quality of life (QOL).

 

Methods: Participants were randomized to a 12-week Kirtan Kriya meditation (KK) or music listening (ML) program and asked to practice 12 minutes/day. Plasma Aβ(38/40/42) and peripheral blood mononuclear cell TL and TA were measured at baseline and 3 months. Cognition, stress, sleep, mood, and QOL were assessed at baseline, 3 months, and 6 months.




 

Results: Baseline blood samples were available for 53 participants (25 KK, 28 ML). The KK group showed significantly greater increases in Aβ40 than the ML group. TA rose in both groups, although increases were significant only among those with higher practice adherence and lower baseline TA. Changes in both TL and TA varied by their baseline values, with greater increases among participants with values ≤50th percentile (ps-interaction <0.006). Both groups improved in cognitive and psychosocial status (ps ≤0.05), with improvements in stress, mood, and QOL greater in the KK group. Rising Aβ levels were correlated with gains in cognitive function, mood, sleep, and QOL at both 3 and 6 months, associations that were particularly pronounced in the KK group. Increases in TL and TA were also correlated with improvements in certain cognitive and psychosocial measures.

 

Conclusion: Practice of simple mind-body therapies may alter plasma Aβ levels, TL, and TA. Biomarker increases were associated with improvements in cognitive function, sleep, mood, and QOL, suggesting potential functional relationships.

Spiritual Fitness: A New Dimension in Alzheimer's Disease Prevention. - Dragonfly Kingdom Library/Spiritual Sports Medicine & Nutrition

Posted on June 22, 2021 at 7:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Abstract

Background: Religious and spiritual interventions may have an effect on Alzheimer's disease prevention. Kirtan Kriya meditation has been shown to mitigate the deleterious effects of chronic stress on cognition, reverse memory loss, and create psychological and spiritual wellbeing, which may reduce multiple drivers of Alzheimer's disease risk.

 

Objective: To detail a new concept in medicine called Spiritual Fitness, a merging of stress reduction, basic wellbeing, and psycho/spiritual wellbeing to prevent Alzheimer's disease.

 

Methods: The literature on the topics mentioned above is described, including an in-depth discussion on why and how each are critical to advancing the future of Alzheimer's disease prevention. The many negative effects of chronic stress, and the benefits of Kirtan Kriya, are reviewed. The four pillars of basic wellbeing, six practical aspects of psychological wellbeing, and the four new non-sectarian features of spiritual fitness are then disclosed. Moreover, instructions on practicing Kirtan Kriya are offered in the Supplementary Material.




 

Conclusion: Religious and spiritual practices, including Kirtan Kriya, are crucial components in the development of enhanced cognition and well-being, which may help prevent and, in some cases, reverse cognitive decline. The key point of this review is that making a commitment to live a brain longevity lifestyle including spiritual fitness is a critically important way for aging Alzheimer's disease free. We hope that this article will inspire scientists, clinicians, and patients to embrace this new concept of spiritual fitness and make it a part of every multidomain program for the prevention of cognitive disability.

Silver may be useful as an antimicrobial laundry additive to decontaminate healthcare laundry washed at low temperatures in domestic and industrial settings






Abstract
Aims: To repurpose a silver-based antimicrobial textile coating product (Micro-Fresh 1911) as a dual-function antimicrobial laundry additive and textile coating.

Methods and results: Survival of Escherichia coli or Staphylococcus aureus type and clinical isolates in a domestic 40°C wash was assessed with and without soiling and biological detergent. Washing with 2% w/v silver additive (wash phase) reduced E. coli and S. aureus by 7·14-8·08 log10 and no cross-contamination was observed. Under dirty conditions, 0·5% silver additive in the rinse phase of a wash with biological detergent reduced E. coli and S. aureus by 7·98-8·40 log10 (0·00-1·42 log10 cross contamination). BS EN ISO 20645:2004 and BS EN ISO 20743:2013 methods were used to assess the antimicrobial activity of polycotton washed with 2% w/v silver additive against S. aureus and E. coli. The treated polycotton was antimicrobial against E. coli and S. aureus type and clinical isolates and remains active after at least one further wash cycle at 40 or 73°C.

Conclusions: The silver additive exhibits antimicrobial activity in a 40°C domestic wash, preventing cross contamination onto clean textiles and depositing an antimicrobial coating onto polycotton.

Significance and impact of the study: The survival of micro-organisms on healthcare uniforms during domestic laundering presents a potential risk of contaminating the home, cross-contamination of other clothing within the wash and transmitting potential pathogens back into healthcare settings via contaminated uniforms. Silver may be useful as an antimicrobial laundry additive to decontaminate healthcare laundry washed at low temperatures in domestic and industrial settings, to therefore reduce the potential risk of transmitting micro-organisms within the domestic and clinical environments.

ADIDAS: IN 2021, FOR THE FIRST TIME, MORE THAN 60 PERCENT OF ALL PRODUCTS WILL BE MADE WITH SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

Posted on June 19, 2021 at 6:15 AM Comments comments (0)

ADIDAS: IN 2021, FOR THE FIRST TIME, MORE THAN 60 PERCENT OF ALL PRODUCTS WILL BE MADE WITH SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS


Herzogenaurach
DECEMBER 28, 2020

 

Ranging from football jerseys made with recycled polyester to the vegan version of the iconic Stan Smith – in 2021, for the first time, more than 60 percent of all adidas products will be made with sustainable materials. This means, for example, that they will be made with recycled polyester or consist of sustainable cotton. With that, adidas moves closer toward its objective to end plastic waste. From 2024 onward, adidas will shift to using only recycled polyester. Since 2018, the company has been using exclusively sustainable cotton. 

“Sustainability is an integral part of the adidas business philosophy. We have continued to invest in sustainability initiatives during the coronavirus pandemic and we will significantly expand our range of sustainable products in 2021. To this end, for example, we have worked with our suppliers to create the structures that make it possible to process recycled materials on a large scale. Not only does our commitment make adidas more sustainable, but it also drives the development of the whole industry,” said adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted.






An overview:

For the first time in 2021, adidas will use more than 60 percent recycled polyester in its products. From 2024 onward, adidas is committed to using only recycled polyester.
Since 2015, adidas has been collaborating with the environmental organization Parley for the Oceans. In 2021, adidas aims to produce 17 million pairs of shoes with recycled plastic waste collected from beaches and coastal regions, after more than 15 million in 2020.
adidas is continuously expanding its vegan product offer and completely renounces the use of fur.
In cooperation with partners, adidas is developing plant-based leather, recycled cotton as well as a particularly climate-friendly running shoe.
In partnership with the company’s suppliers, adidas aims to achieve global climate neutrality by 2050 and in its entire supply chain.
Company-owned photovoltaic systems with a current installed capacity of 1.4 megawatts generate green electricity. adidas has reduced its overall carbon footprint at its company sites by more than 50 percent compared to 2015.
Sustainability also for investors: adidas placed its first sustainability bond.
COOPERATION WITH ‘PARLEY FOR THE OCEANS’ TO PROTECT THE OCEANS
In 2015, adidas and Parley for the Oceans together presented the first shoe made with Parley Ocean Plastic at the United Nations in New York. Since then, adidas has produced many millions of pairs of such shoes made with recycled plastic waste from beaches and coastal regions. In 2020 alone, within the framework of this partnership, adidas and Parley have collected almost 7,000 tonnes of plastic waste – corresponding to around 350 million plastic bottles*. Using this waste, adidas aims to produce around 17 million pairs of shoes, among other products, in 2021, after producing more than 15 million pairs in 2020. 

*Basic assumption: average weight of 20 grams per PET bottle

ADIDAS EXPANDS POLYESTER RECYCLING RATIO TO OVER 60 PERCENT
In addition to the Parley products, adidas is increasing the amount of recycled materials used in its overall product range. The share of recycled polyester has reached a percentage of 
over 60. The ‘Primeblue’ and ‘Primegreen’ labels mark products made with recycled materials. While offering full functionality and durability in sports, they avoid waste and preserve natural resources. 

From the beginning, adidas designers consider the later reusability of their product in its development: The Ultraboost DNA Loop, which was raffled off to interested consumers in October 2020 for the first time, is made from one single material from sole to laces and is welded without glue. Once the shoe reaches the end of its life cycle, it can be shredded to pieces and reused. In the spring of 2021, adidas will launch the successor in a larger volume. 





Furthermore, regarding cotton, adidas is participating in the development of recycled materials. In a research cooperation with Infinite Fiber, a Finnish start-up company, adidas and additional partners strive for developing a process to transform used clothes into a cotton-like material.

VEGAN PRODUCTS CONTRIBUTE TO ANIMAL WELFARE
For adidas, sustainability means using less plastic and less animal material. In 2020, adidas launched vegan versions of several classics such as the adidas Stan Smith, which quickly became bestsellers. This year, adidas seeks to break new ground: Together with partners, adidas is developing a new material, a purely biological leather alternative made from mycelium, and will use it for the very first time in the creation of footwear. In addition, adidas has committed to ‘Vier Pfoten’, an animal protection organization, to completely ban furs from the manufacturing of its products.

Reebok follows suit with a growing number of sustainable products on offer. The Forever Floatride GROW is made from natural materials such as algae, eucalyptus trees and natural rubber. Already in 2018, the brand introduced a plant-based shoe – the Cotton + Corn.

ENVIRONMENTAL AND CLIMATE PROTECTION 
adidas has teamed up with footwear manufacturer Allbirds to create the world’s lowest climate footprint sports shoe. Manufacturing and transportation of this shoe are intended to include reusable materials as well as renewable energies.

At its corporate sites, adidas operates its own facilities to generate environmentally friendly energy. Alongside several photovoltaic systems with an overall peak capacity of around 1.4 megawatts, the company operates a modern facility for combined electricity and heat generation at its headquarters in Herzogenaurach. In the Rieste distribution center (Lower Saxony), the company uses biomass for heating. The overall carbon footprint of all company sites has been reduced by more than 50 percent compared to 2015.

adidas is working closely together with its suppliers to implement climate and environmental protection measures at the sites of partners in the supply chain. Various projects with suppliers aim to reduce carbon emissions and water consumption as well as preserve an intact environment. adidas sets its own standards, which often go beyond legal requirements at the locations of manufacturing. Since last year, adidas has committed to the so-called ‘Science-based Targets’, allowing independent external partners to evaluate the climate goals of the company. The objective: reach climate neutrality by 2050, globally and at all suppliers. 

STAYING FAIR IN CHALLENGING TIMES
The coronavirus pandemic is a huge challenge for suppliers as well. adidas remains a reliable partner, adhering to all agreements and supporting the manufacturers with know-how regarding the implementation of enforced hygiene measures. Adhering to labor rights remains a top priority. Accordingly, in November 2020, the renowned Corporate Human Rights Benchmark ranked adidas as the best company worldwide in the apparel industry with regard to ensuring human rights and labor rights in the supply chain. 

SUSTAINABLE OFFERS FOR INVESTORS 
Sustainability is vastly becoming important for investors: the adidas sustainability bond amounting to € 500 million issued in September 2020 was five times oversubscribed. Proceeds from the offering will be used in endeavours such as procuring recycled materials, investing into renewable energy production and supporting underrepresented communities.

Author information

Experimental and Molecular Pathology, 01 Jun 2003, 74(3):197-209

DOI: 10.1016/s0014-4800(03)00038-8 PMID: 12782006

 


Abstract

Unusual pigmented intracellular inclusions are commonly seen in cultures obtained from patients infected with stealth viruses. Some of these structures may potentially provide a source of chemical energy for the infected cells to help compensate for the apparent damage to the cells' mitochondria. They have accordingly been termed alternative cellular energy pigments (ACE pigments). In keeping with this suggestion, the present paper illustrates the diversity of extraneous materials present in vacuolated, mitochondria-damaged cells seen in the brain biopsy of a child with a stealth-virus-associated encephalopathy. Many of the intracellular inclusions show highly ordered structuring, while others have a more amorphous appearance. These structures may provide a target for energy-based therapeutic intervention in stealth-virus-infected patients.





The potential contributing role of stealth virus infections in children presenting with behavioral problems needs to be addressed. - Dragonfly Kingdom Library

Posted on June 16, 2021 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)

An infectious illness, attributed to atypically structured cytopathic "stealth" viruses, occurred in 1996 in the Mohave Valley region of the United States. A stealth virus-infected child from this region has developed a severe noninflammatory, vacuolating (spongiform) en cephalopathy. The illness initially presented as a behavioral problem without overt neurological signs. Extensive investigations, including repeated magnetic resonance imaging, two brain biopsies, and stealth virus cultures, have helped define the disease process occurring in this child. Significant clinical benefit with apparent retardation of disease progression occurred during a 6-week course of ganciclovir therapy. The potential contributing role of stealth virus infections in children presenting with behavioral problems needs to be addressed.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS): An Imprecisely Defined Infectious Disease Caused by Stealth Adapted Viruses. - Dragonfly Kingdom Library

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS): An Imprecisely Defined Infectious Disease Caused by Stealth Adapted Viruses

W John Martin*

Institute of Progressive Medicine, South Pasadena, USA

 

Introduction

Much of the research on the chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is misguided for two major reasons. First, it is falsely assumed that CFS is a distinct, definable illness, which can be reliably differentiated from other neurological and psychiatric illnesses. Second, in spite of compelling evidence to the contrary, CFS is not generally regarded as an infectious illness. This review addresses these two issues and is followed by a brief discussion on stealth adapted viruses and the alternative cellular energy (ACE) pathway.

 

Diagnosis

It is clearly inappropriate that the diagnosis of CFS is being applied to severely ill, bedridden patients, as well as to outspoken, internet savvy individuals who frequently attend conferences and other public events. The core symptom for the majority of those diagnosed with CFS is a feeling of not having sufficient physical and/or mental capacity to undertake ordinary tasks, with no clear explanation as to why this limitation exists. The frustrating feeling of persisting fatigue will typically become exacerbated, with a delayed onset after even modest physical and/or mental exertion and can remain so for several days, without being relieved by sleep. Beyond the core symptom of unexplained fatigue, there are a plethora of additional clinical manifestations. To a varying extent, different CFS patients experience mental confusion with a lack of clarity in their thoughts (brain fog); inability to stay focused on a topic (attention deficit); poor memory, even forgetting the names of common everyday items; and emotional lability, expressed as periods of sadness (lack of joy); and occasionally as anxiety, anger and/or depression. CFS patients can often experience hypersensitivity to sensory inputs, leading to pain, paresthesia, photophobia, tinnitus and chemical sensitivity. The autonomic nervous system may show signs of dysregulation such as postural hypotension with tachycardia; other disorders affecting blood circulation; irritable bowel; etc. The severity of these various symptoms differs widely among patients diagnosed with CFS and can also vary markedly over time in the same individual. Unless further defined, the CFS diagnosis is largely uninformative with regards to a particular patient's illness. Furthermore, similar sets of symptoms can be present in patients with traumatic brain injuries and in patients in whom additional symptoms or laboratory test results can lead to a better defined neurological, psychiatric, or autoimmune diagnosis. Based on more questionable criteria, some patients who would otherwise be diagnosed as mild to moderate CFS are diagnosed as having depression, personality disorder, burnout, post-traumatic stress, fibromyalgia, chronic Lyme disease, Gulf War syndrome, chronic inflammatory response syndrome (CIRS), chemical sensitivity, electromagnetic sensitivity, irritable bowel syndrome, etc. According to some definitions, CFS is excluded if the patient has psychiatric symptoms, yet other definitions allow for co-morbid psychiatric diagnoses [1-6].

 

Several laboratory tests will commonly yield results in CFS patients, which are different from those in most healthy controls [7-26]. The items being tested are only loosely directed to the element of chronic fatigue. Moreover, similar abnormal results can occur in association with many other chronic illnesses in which fatigue is not a predominant feature. Emotional stress and prolonged periods of physical inactivity can potentially cause disruptions in the biochemical pathways measured in some of these assays. It has also been argued that knowing that one has an abnormal test result will simply add to further pessimism about being ill. Certain individuals seem to do better by consciously disregarding the illness concept and are more accepting of their physical and mental limitations. The diagnosis of CFS for these patients is considered counterproductive.

Infection

Multiple lines of evidence indicate an infectious cause of CFS. The first is the occurrence of major outbreaks of CFS-related illnesses. Seventy-three outbreaks occurring between 1934 and 1990 are listed in the book The Clinical and Scientific Basis of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, edited by Dr. Byron Hyde [27]. Prominent among these outbreaks was an illness beginning in 1985 and first publicly reported in 1986, which occurred in the Lake Tahoe/Incline Village region of Nevada [28]. Two of the many unpublicized subsequent outbreaks in the US are worth noting. Dr. Donovan Anderson manages a general medical practice in Mohave Valley, Arizona, which is nearby to Needles, California. In the spring of 1996, he became aware of an acute illness which progressively affected well over a hundred of the local residents. Individuals presented with acute gastrointestinal symptoms, developing approximately a week after contact with someone with similar symptoms. Vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain would resolve within 1-2 weeks. Rather than the individuals regaining their prior health, most progressed to a chronic illness. This illness was characterized by severe fatigue, cognitive impairments and mood disorders [29]. The disease affecting most of these individuals was confirmed as CFS by a visiting specialist in this condition. Several patients had very severe illnesses, including dementia. A veterinarian exhibited symptoms of acute depression prior to suicide. An 8-year-old child of a symptomatic mother exhibited attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in second grade. He mentioned to his mother that he would see double when tired or stressed. An MRI of his brain showed fairly extensive white matter disease suggestive of a leukodystrophy, with frontal lobe predominance. A brain biopsy of the frontal lobe showed no inflammation. Rather it was pathologically described as a spongy (vacuolar) myelinopathy [30]. Based on a positive stealth virus culture (to be discussed in a later section of this article), the child was prescribed a course of ganciclovir, which provided some temporary clinical improvements. Nevertheless, he continued to deteriorate, became physically incapacitated and died approximately one-year later. Blood samples from over 50 additional patients involved in this outbreak were also cultured for evidence of infection with stealth adapted viruses. All of the tested samples gave strongly positive results. Most of the patients have remained chronically ill for over 20 years with many now being diagnosed as having fibromyalgia in addition to CFS.


Vertigo natural treatment

 

A hairdresser in Joelton, TN, realized she, her two staff members, and a number of her clients were experiencing episodes of pain that mainly affected areas of their skin, along with a feeling of general malaise and noticeably impaired thought processing. She communicated her concerns to the local health authority and to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The representative from the CDC asked if she knew of additional patients. The hairdresser took the initiative of describing her illness in the local Shopper magazine. Well over 100 people from the local community responded that they were experiencing similar symptoms. As soon as the issue of a potential infectious process arose, the local health authority, on the advice from CDC, refused to engage in any further contact. This patient and several of her close associates tested positive in stealth adapted virus cultures......

These findings support the concepts that stealth viruses can account for a spectrum of dysfunctional brain diseases. - Dragonfly Kingdom Library

Posted on June 15, 2021 at 11:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Abstract

A cytopathic 'stealth' virus was cultured from the cerebrospinal fluid of a patient with a bipolar psychotic disorder who developed a severe encephalopathy leading to a vegetative state. DNA sequencing of a polymerase chain reaction-amplified product from infected cultures has identified the virus as an African green monkey simian cytomegalovirus (SCMV)-related stealth virus. The virus is similar to the SCMV-related stealth virus isolated from a patient with chronic fatigue syndrome. The findings support the concepts that stealth viruses can account for a spectrum of dysfunctional brain diseases and that some of these viruses may have arisen from live polio viral vaccines.

Microbial infections in eight genomic subtypes of chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis. - Dragonfly Kingdom Library

Posted on June 15, 2021 at 11:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Abstract

Background: The authors have previously reported genomic subtypes of chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) based on expression of 88 human genes.

 

Aim: To attempt to reproduce these findings, determine the specificity of this signature to CFS/ME, and test for associations between CFS/ME subtype and infection.

 

Methods: Expression levels of 88 human genes were determined in blood of 62 new patients with idiopathic CFS/ME (according to Fukuda criteria), six patients with Q-fever-associated CFS/ME from the Birmingham Q-fever outbreak (according to Fukuda criteria), 14 patients with endogenous depression (according to DSM-IV criteria) and 29 normal blood donors.

Results: In patients with CFS/ME, differential expression was confirmed for all 88 genes. Q-CFS/ME had similar patterns of gene expression to idiopathic CFS/ME. Gene expression in patients with endogenous depression was similar to that in the normal controls, except for upregulation of five genes (APP, CREBBP, GNAS, PDCD2 and PDCD6). Clustering of combined gene data in CFS/ME patients for this and the authors' previous study (117 CFS/ME patients) revealed genomic subtypes with distinct differences in SF36 scores, clinical phenotypes, severity and geographical distribution. Antibody testing for Epstein-Barr virus, enterovirus, Coxiella burnetii and parvovirus B19 revealed evidence of subtype-specific relationships for Epstein-Barr virus and enterovirus, the two most common infectious triggers of CFS/ME.

 

Conclusions: This study confirms the involvement of these genes in CFS/ME

In some cases of violence and other criminal behavior, this can be a consequence of central nervous system infection. - Dragonfly Kingdom Library

Posted on June 15, 2021 at 10:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Abstract

Infections of the central nervous system can damage the brain and cause abnormal behavior. In this article, the authors examine how behavior is affected by damage to different parts of the brain. They then focus on damage caused by specific infections of the brain and how these can result in abnormal behavior with legal consequences.

Examples of such infections include neurosyphilis, encephalitis lethargica, herpes simplex encephalitis, and various other viral encephalitides, both acute and chronic. The AIDS dementia complex, which results from HIV infection of the brain, causes behavioral abnormalities in addition to motor and cognitive impairments. In some cases of violence and other criminal behavior, this can be a consequence of central nervous system infection, and the authors suggest that criminal sanctions in such events are inappropriate in the absence of volitional criminal intent.

Abstract

Mainstream neurologists and psychiatrists have largely refrained from serious consideration of a virus cause of common brain diseases. This is mainly because of the general lack of any accompanying immune system stimulated inflammatory reaction within the brain. This article exposes a weakness in this argument by describing the process of “stealth adaptation” of viruses. Deletion or mutation of relatively few virus components can result in derivative viruses, which are no longer effectively recognized by the cellular immune system. Consequently, there is no triggering of the inflammatory response. Furthermore, the brain is uniquely susceptible to symptomatic illness caused by stealth adapted viruses. An understanding of stealth adaptation greatly expands the potential scope of viral illnesses. It also underscores the value of using virus cultures as a diagnostic tool and of taking appropriate measures to avoid transmission of infection. More importantly, therapeutic measures are available for suppressing both stealth adapted and conventional virus infections through enhancement of the alternative cellular energy (ACE) pathway. Such measures are available for clinical evaluation in treating many of the major illnesses affecting the brain, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Introduction

With the possible exception of cancer, diseases of the brain comprise most of the worst feared human aliments. Whether it is the increasing likelihood of autism occurring in children [1]; or Alzheimer’s disease occurring in the elderly [2], the current medical paradigms are failing to provide effective answers. Nor has significant progress been made in addressing many other tragic illnesses, such as schizophrenia, bipolar psychosis, Parkinson’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Society is further challenged by a range of somewhat less severe but still disabling illnesses, including chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, depression, drug addiction, criminal behaviors and intellectual impairments affecting both learning and work performances.

 

Various investigators have suggested a possible infectious origin of several of the aforementioned neuropsychiatric illnesses [3-11]. Because of the absence of noticeable inflammation, however, it is usually argued that if infectious agents are indeed involved, their effects must be indirect and quite possibly delayed. For example, common infections occurring during pregnancy can clearly lead to elevated levels of various cytokines as part of the immune response. There are supporting data that maternal cytokines may significantly inhibit normal fetal brain development, with potential later life consequences [12-14]. Other researchers have suggested that certain infectious agents might potentially trigger the production of antibodies, which cross-react with neuronal components, thereby interfering with normal brain function. Such self-reacting antibodies may continue to form as part of an ongoing autoimmune process [15-17]. None of these scenarios envisions viruses as the direct cause of ongoing cellular injury...........

Abstract

Background

Despite an impressive effort in clinical research, no standard therapeutic approach for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients has been established, highlighting the need to identify early biomarkers for predicting disease progression and new therapeutic interventions for patient management. The present study aimed to evaluate the involvement of the human endogenous retrovirus -W envelope (HERV-W ENV) in severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection considering recent findings that HERVs are activated in response to infectious agents and lead to various immunopathological effects. We analysed HERV-W ENV expression in blood cells of COVID-19 patients in correlation with clinical characteristics and have discussed its potential role in the outcome of the disease.

Methods

We analysed HERV-W ENV expression in blood samples of COVID-19 patients and healthy donors by flow cytometry and quantitative reverse transcriptase PCR analysis, and evaluated its correlation with clinical signs, inflammatory markers, cytokine expression, and disease progression.





 

Findings

HERV-W ENV was highly expressed in the leukocytes of COVID-19 patients but not in those of healthy donors. Its expression correlated with the markers of T-cell differentiation and exhaustion and blood cytokine levels. The percentage of HERV-W ENV-positive lymphocytes correlated with inflammatory markers and pneumonia severity in COVID-19 patients. Notably, HERV-W ENV expression reflects the respiratory outcome of patients during hospitalization.

Interpretation

Given the known immuno- and neuro-pathogenicity of HERV-W ENV protein, it could promote certain pathogenic features of COVID-19 and therefore serve as a biomarker to predict clinical progression of disease and open to further studies for therapeutic intervention.

Abstract

Several observations made during the course of studies on stealth-adapted viruses are explainable by a pervasive, energy-rich, ether environment. Activation of an alternative cellular energy (ACE) pathway provides stealth virus damaged cells with a repair mechanism that is independent of the cellular immune response. ACE activation can also assist in the systemic healing of infections caused by conventional viruses such as Herpes simplex virus, Herpes zoster virus and human papillomavirus. ACE pigments convert conventional forms of physical energies into a biological cell healing energy, the nature of which is still uncertain.

More recent studies suggest that ACE pigments may also capture etheric energy. In addition to cellular repair, ACE pigment activation can lead to the biogenesis of lipid-like chemical structures. ACE pigment and virus culture healing activities were also seen with several natural products, including a homeopathic formulation. A colloidal silver solution appeared to facilitate the transmission of ACE and to enhance its biosynthetic activity. These results open a window into a greater understanding of a fundamental force of nature of potential therapeutic importance.
