Context: Exercise induced muscle damage (EIMD) is associated with transient reductions in strength and athletic performance. Studies conclude aetiology is due in part to muscle micro vascular damage and disruption of blood flow. Previous research on vibration therapy reports modulation in muscle blood flow, oxygenation and strength.
Objective: The aim of this study was to observe if local vibration therapy (VT) alleviates the impairments and haemodynamic changes associated with EIMD.
Design: Controlled laboratory study.
Setting: Laboratory and public gymnasium.
Patients or other participants: Ten healthy participants (6 males: 4 females; age: 38±15 yrs; height: 1.72±0.48 m; mass 72.0±10.4 kg) were randomized into experimental (VT) and control (CON) groups.
Interventions: Both groups performed 10 sets of 10 eccentric wrist flexions at 70% of 1-repetition maximum to induce muscle damage. Subsequent assessment of wrist flexor strength and flexor carpus ulnaris (FCU) muscle oxygen saturation (SmO2) occurred at 1-, 24- and 48 hr-post exercise. VT group underwent 10 min of local VT (45 Hz) starting 1 hr-post exercise and applied twice daily (separated by 8 hrs) for 48 hrs during habitual waking hours. CON group received no local VT.
Main outcome measure(s): Grip strength, resting muscle oxygen (SmO2), muscle oxygen de-saturation and re-saturation rate.

Results: No difference in grip strength observed pre EIMD, but the VT group demonstrated greater strength at 1 hr (P=0.004), 24 hr (P=0.031) and 48 hr (P=0.021) post EIMD compared to controls. No difference in SmO2 re-saturation over time (P>0.05), but the VT group had a greater re-saturation rate compared to controls at 1 hr (P=0.007, d = 2.6), 24 hr (P=0.001 d = 3.1) and 48 hr (P=0.035, d = 1.7) post EIMD.
Conclusions: Local VT successfully attenuated the effects of EIMD and increased SmO2 re-saturation in FCU muscles. Including local VT as part of a recovery protocol post-EIMD could be beneficial for rehabilitation and athletic training purposes.

Ionizing radiation and photosensitization are highly damaging events and they generate oxygen-derived free radicals as well as excited species. However, the types as well as extent of reactive oxygen species (ROS) differ. They have been linked to various pathological conditions. Hence natural compounds capable of preventing oxidative damage induced by these agents may have potential applications. Chlorophyllin (CHL), the water-soluble analogue of chlorophyll, has been examined for its ability to inhibit membrane damage induced by y-radiation and photosensitization involving methylene blue plus visible light........ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11154798/

Dangers of Devices
This day and age we’re surrounded by electronic devices. The huge influx of items that on average each family has in their homes has grown exponentially in the last few years--particularly with the introduction of smart phones, tablets, smart appliances, etc. Because so many of these things have been very recently introduced, it’s very difficult to know exactly what potential short or long-term health impact they may have. However, if you’ve done any study into this subject, you realize there’s a lot more than meets the eye. Today we're featuring the first part in a series where we’re discussing the potentially negative impact that frequent and close exposure to devices can have, and what you can do to minimize that potential effect. So let’s get started.
First, it’s important for us to realize that if you live on the earth (I think that would be all of us), we’re frequently being exposed to electromagnetic radiation (EMRs)--also called Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) They seem to be more more commonly called EMFs, so that’s what we’ll call them here for the sake of simplicity.
EMFs include various classifications of electromagnetic radiation, and there are frequencies that are classified into several categories: ELF (extremely low frequency), RF (Radio Frequency) and MF or MR (Microwave). These can come from toasters, analog clocks, desktop computers, laptop computers, tablets, cordless phones, cell phones, Bluetooth devices, motion detectors, Wi-Fi, etc.
At first you might think that the concern for this is just some quackery, but if you study it out, you’ll find there is legitimate, scientific, documentation relating to exposure from these things. Since we’re inundated by this, potentially every hour of each day, it might be worth taking note of the concerns and what we should do to minimize potential exposure.
What Are The Potential Concerns?
In nature, there are negative ions generated by things like waterfalls, lightning storms, sunlight, and the ocean. The effect of these on our bodies is healthy--relieving stress, boosting serotonin, etc. This isn’t simply the mental “I’m in relaxation mode when I’m at the beach” effect, but is a scientifically-supported effect of negative ions. In contrast, electrical devices create positive ions, which can have a negative effect on our bodies such as disrupting your sleep, causing inflammation, increasing stress, etc.
Because of our bodies ability to conduct electricity, including even our DNA, research suggests that EMF exposure can actually cause breaks in DNA, leading to DNA damage and cell mutation. Additional concerns are that EMFs can play a negative role in diseases such as Alzheimer's, Lou Gehrig's Disease, be related to male infertility, and may even be a risk factor for some cancers.
It is believed that children are more vulnerable to the harm that EMFs may pose. This is possibly because a child’s cells replicate faster, and because their skull is thinner--which is less of a barrier against these potentially damaging EMFs. “In 2009, Dr. Lennart Hardell reported that children who begin using mobile phones at ages younger than 20 have a 520% elevated risk of developing glioma – even after just one year of use (this is compared to a 140% elevated risk across all ages).”* The particular concerns associated with the impact that EMFs can have on children should make us exercise extra caution to limit our kid’s device time or exposure to phones, computers, etc.
What Can You Do
The nature of radiation is such that the closer you are to it, the stronger it is. Having checked into the physics aspect of this just a little, we understand that in real life, that translates to this: Your body will get ¼ the radiation from your cell phone sitting 2 feet away from you, than it will get if it’s sitting 1 foot away. So essentially, the more distance you can put between you and your devices at any given time of day or night, the better.
Keep your phone away from your body--a few feet or across the room, whenever you can. When you need to have one close by, using a Bluetooth or other hands-free device cuts down on your EMF exposure. Even using speakerphone is a better choice that talking with your phone right by your face. Text, vs. calling is also a better choice, if you’re not on the road where texting is a dangerous choice.
Phone shields are available. Not all shields are alike, however, and may work against you (blocking rays from getting to your phone, vs. rays from getting to you). One brand we’ve read about and seen recommended was DefenderShield.
At night or when taking a nap, use an old-fashioned clock for your alarm and keep your phone out of your bedroom. If you need to have your phone close by, turn it on airplane mode, or even better, turn it off. Even having in on a dresser across the room would be better than on your nightstand.
Turn your WiFi/modem/router off at night when you don’t need it.
Parents, consider using an analog audio baby monitor vs. a digital one with video and WiFi option. Turn your iPad or iPhone or Tablet on airplane mode if you are letting your child play a game on it. You may also want to consider the value of considerably limiting device time to a minimum.
Don’t keep your laptop on your lap. Put it on a desk or table nearby when possible. Or use a shield, such as DefenderShield’s brand of laptop shields that is supposed to protect you from various forms of EMFs, and also from the heat generated by the laptop, which is also considered harmful at times times.
Going barefoot in your yard (i.e. in contact with the ground), will help to “ground” you. The negative ions in the earth will help to balance out those positive ones you’ve been exposed to. A newer technology called “earthing” is worth considering too. Earthing takes advantage of this “grounding” concept. When you are inside, there are specially-designed mats that you can sleep on or sit with that conduct those positive ions to the grounding port in your electrical outlet (don’t worry, you’re only being grounded, not electrified!). Special shoes with conductive spots where your toes are help to “ground” you when you are outside and still wearing shoes. Preliminary research indicates that earthing may reduce cortisol levels and inflammation, improve sleep and energy, normalize biological rhythms, and offers a host of other benefits.
Himalayan salt lamps are both a unique decorative item, as well as a potentially healthy source of light. Producing a warm, red glow, these salt lamps are said to emit negative ions (the opposite of your electrical devices) and thereby produce a balancing effect to all the EMFs your body is subjected to. Negative ions are also what you are benefited by when earthing, visiting the beach, etc. You can find salt lamps for sale online, or even at local stores.
These are just a few examples of things you can do to reduce the negative impact of EMFs. We would encourage you to take time to research this area more thoroughly yourself so you can make the best healthy choices for your and your family.
This is an area where there needs to be more scientific research. For one, the explosion of the electronic devices that we use and carry with us means that the study of long-term effects and studies and general information is probably in its infancy. There’s indication that quality studies are lacking, since some of the studies that have been done are possibly biased to have a favorable result for those who have a vested interest in technology “looking safe” for the consumer. This is only the tip of the iceberg, and we commend you to further study to make good decisions for your own healthy technology use. We personally feel that it’s a great idea to take precautionary measures in protecting ourselves from the potentially-harmful effects of close and frequent use of our technology. We also know that the best, most fulfilling part of life is not having instant access to the technology world, but quality, face-to-face relationships with people. So use technology wisely, take appropriate precautions to be healthy, and then get off your devices when you can and invest in the people in your life.

Emotional Wellness is defined in this article as a quantitative measure of the extent to
which an individual is living a joyful, inquisitive, and optimistic life. When noticeably present,
this mindset is described as a feeling of excitement, awe, wonderment, and exuberance. In
contrast to mania, this elevated feeling is contained within an overall sense of serenity and
contentment, in which the person remains calm, resilient, and tolerant. Empathy, gratitude
and a sense of belonging are additional features of this heightened level of emotional wellness.
By contrast, a deficiency of emotional wellness is characterized by feelings of despair,
depression, pessimism, boredom, sadness, frustration, anger, anxiety, and commonly
hostility. These feelings can negatively impact on achieving refreshing sleep. The fundamental
distinction between these opposing extremes of emotional wellness has become apparent to
several individuals who have experienced a transformation in their life from the wearing of
a waterceutical pouch in close proximity to their body. The water in these pouches is able to
absorb and re-transmit an environmental force that has been termed KELEA, an abbreviation for Kinetic Energy Limiting Electrostatic Attraction . KELEA
increases the kinetic activity of water molecules and is reflected in
a loosening of the hydrogen bonding between the water molecules
. When worn closely to the body, the pouches can slowly add to
the level of KELEA in the body’s fluids. KELEA is a source of both
chemical and electrical energy for the body’s cells [3,4]. This source
of cellular energy is different from the energy obtained from food
metabolism. Accordingly, it has been called the alternative cellular
energy (ACE) pathway .
A memorable early description of an improvement in emotional
wellness occurred with a gentleman who was recruited to assist
with a musical arrangement. As part of the social interactions, he
was freely provided with a small pouch containing approximately
100ml of KELEA activated water. He was advised to wear the
pouch daily against his skin. When he returned a week later, he
spontaneously commented on the remarkable effects that he felt
were attributed to the pouch. Specifically, he was experiencing
uplifting feelings that reminded him of his childhood. He explicitly
described how he was now more aware of his surroundings and
more excited about facing the day’s tasks. He offered the term
“blissful” to convey the renewed sensation, but quickly agreed that
what he had regained was the joy and excitement that comes from
seeing beauty in Nature and feeling connected to a higher purpose.
The theme of improved emotional wellness has now been
echoed by other individuals using the KELEA waterceutical
pouches. Most of these individuals had been more focused on the
successful relief of specific ailments, such as arthritic pain. The
apparent elevation in mood was, therefore, initially assumed to be a
secondary outcome of the lessening of their symptoms. When more
directly quizzed, however, they realize that the emotional benefits
have gone beyond those explainable by the reduction in symptoms.
Retrospectively, it is apparent that at least some degree of
improved emotional wellness has been a feature in most of the
patients being treated with other formulations of KELEA activated
water . Examples include the responses of a series of AIDS
patients who were receiving daily intravenous injections of a
product called Enercel [7,8]. Not only did this lead to a reduction in
their HIV blood levels, but the treated individuals became far more
outgoing and optimistic. As a group they became socially interactive
and really wanted to help others learn about the treatment. Another
positive example was that of a 15-year-old girl who had suffered
facial lacerations and head injury in a car accident. In spite of losing
some close friends in the car accident, she regained her emotional
stability soon after beginning an intravenous course of Enercel. An
additional feature noted in this girl and in several Enercel-treated
cancer patients is that that the elevated mood persists even after
the discontinuation of the Enercel.
The example of the unanticipated regaining of emotional
wellness by the musician is particularly informative because he
had considered himself to be quite healthy prior to receiving the
water-filled pouch. This realization raises the possibility that large segments of the population may be unaware of their being relatively
deficient in emotional wellness. An incidental accounting to a
criminal lawyer of the restored emotional elements in the musician
led the lawyer to conclude that virtually all of his clients were
very much in need of a cellular energy boost. Reduced emotional
wellness may well, therefore, predispose an individual to criminal
behavior. A similar conclusion probably applies to those involved
in the destroying of properties and assaulting of law enforcement
officers during otherwise peaceful protests. It is apparent that many
of these individuals are cognitively as well as emotionally impaired
in that during interviews they are unable to rationally explain their
behavior. Rather they seem intent upon indiscriminately blaming
others for what they may not readily recognize as their suboptimal
emotional wellness. This is consistent with the ease in which
protesting individuals readily switch their complaints between
different conspiracy topics. It is possible, therefore, that the growing
protest movements are yet additional signs of a community-wide
reduction in emotional wellness. A similar argument can be made
regarding individuals resorting to using mind altering drugs.
The following ideas are offered as science-supported
considerations for why there has been an overall deterioration in
emotional health. These include an understanding of KELEA as a
non-food source of cellular energy. The normal environmental level
of KELEA is likely reduced from manmade activities. An additional
factor is the widespread infection of humans with brain damaging
stealth adapted virus. These infections can further reduce to ability
of the body to attract KELEA.
Reduction in KELEA as a Contributing Factor to the
Decline in Emotional Wellness
The fundamental role of KELEA is presumably to prevent
the ultimate fusion of electrostatic attracted opposing electrical
charges. KELEA is, therefore, considered to be a repulsive force that
is attracted to separated electrical charges. It must exist throughout
the universe. It would, therefore, be continually coming to the earth
in association with the electrons and protons that comprise cosmic
rays. The increasing levels of manmade electromagnetic radiation
in the earth’s atmosphere is potentially reducing the amounts of
KELEA reaching the surface of the earth. This reduction is because
electromagnetic radiation leads to the separation of positive and
negative charges, which would then be able to capture some of the
incoming KELEA. Experimental data have been obtained in support
of this proposition [9,10]. The reduction of the amount of KELEA
reaching the earth’s surface would presumably lead to diminished
ACE pathways for all life forms. The introduction of increased
electromagnetic radiation in the form of 5G transmissions will
surely aggravate this reduction in available KELEA. Air pollution
may also act as a diversion of some of the KELEA that would
otherwise be available for biological processes.
KELEA Activated Water
The ACE pathway is involved in many physical, chemical, and
biological processes. It would appear that in chemical reactions
the levels of KELEA on approaching opposite electrical charges become progressively diminished as the charges move closer to
one another. As such it is an expression of chemical energy .
This concept also implies that KELEA has an effect at a distance.
Its effect on water can lead to a loosening of the hydrogen bonding
between the water molecules . KELEA can also be attracted to
the separated electrical charges on dipolar molecules. Possibly
through an oscillating mechanism, certain dipolar molecules can
repeatedly attract and release KELEA. If placed in the vicinity of
water, these oscillating dipolar compounds can add to the existing
level of KELEA in the water. The water is then referred to as being
KELEA activated. KELEA can similarly act on the body’s fluids.
Through a reduction in intermolecular bonding, it reduces the
viscosity of the fluids allowing for increased permeability. Water
bound electrolytes, including chloride ions, can also become more
available. Furthermore, KELEA can directly empower both chemical
and electrical activities of cells.
The Brain as the Primary Receiver of KELEA
The fluctuating electrical activity of the brain is thought to be
the body’s major receiver of KELEA . Arguably, this proposed
activity is as significant a basic function of the brain as is the
brain’s electrical networking circuitry. It is possible that this KELEA
attracting ability began as a basic function of the central complex
in the brains of primitive invertebrates  and became further
developed in the reticular formation of the vertebrate brain .
It would seem, however, that this basic KELEA attracting function
can be further enhanced, especially in conjunction with what is
being considered as emotional wellness. Conversely, it is likely
diminished by those brain activities associated with stressful
and self-depreciating negative thoughts and emotional feelings.
Realizing that the brain can consciously be utilized as an added
source of KELEA in order to help achieve sustainable emotional
wellness is the major premise of ongoing clinical studies.
Stealth Adapted Viruses as a Contributing Factor to
the Decline in Emotional Wellness
Various brain illnesses can also presumably reduce the brain’s
capacity to attract KELEA. The brain is particularly susceptible to
symptomatic illnesses due to viruses, which have undergone an
immune evasion mechanism referred to as stealth adaptation .
Public health authorities have been reluctant to acknowledge the
existence of these viruses because some were derived from viruses
that infected the types of monkeys used to produce poliovirus
vaccines . Nevertheless, based on extensive culture data in the
late 1990s, at least 10% of individuals without a diagnosed disease
and the majority of tested individuals with neurological and/or
psychiatric illnesses are infected with these viruses. Presumably,
the prevalence of infection has significantly increased since the
time of these culture studies.
The existence of stealth adapted viruses has yet to be
acknowledged by public health officials or indeed by the wider
scientific community. The public health reticence is due to the
early findings of genetic sequences in some of these viruses that
are closely related to genetic sequences in African green monkey simian cytomegalovirus (SCMV) . Certain other stealth adapted
viruses have genetic sequences originating in rhesus monkeys .
These results clearly imply that ongoing infections of humans with
some stealth adapted viruses are unfortunate consequences of
using monkey kidney cell cultures to produce poliovirus vaccines.
Stealth adapted viruses were initially described as an infectious
cause of the chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). They were also
detected in the brains of many patients with diverse neurological
and psychiatric illnesses [16-21]. It is reasoned that the brain
is particularly susceptible to symptomatic illness due to stealth
adapted viruses because unlike most other organs, its functions
are regionally organized with crucial communication pathways
between its functionally different regions.
The novel feature of stealth adapted viruses is that inflammation
does not normally occur in infected humans or animals. This is due
to the deletion or mutation of the genes that code for the relatively
few virus components, which are normally targeted by the cellular
immune system. The deletion of genes can involve fragmentation
of the virus genome. The possible cross linking of fragments by
cellular genomic sequences can allow for the incorporation of
the cellular sequences into the replicating virus genome [15,22].
These results have drastically changed the perception of viruses as
always being genetically clearly distinguishable from cells to one
in which viruses may essentially be replicating cellular derived
genetic sequences. Even more interesting, bacterial sequences have
also been detected in a well characterized stealth adapted virus
. This can explain why some stealth adapted viruses are being
mistakenly attributed to bacteria. This occurs, for example, with so
called chronic Lyme disease.
Among the ACE pathway supported cellular activities is the
direct, non-immunological suppression of infectious diseases,
including those due to stealth adapted viruses . Basically,
infections are viewed as a competitive process for the body’s energy
resources. The infection proceeds if the body has insufficient cellular
energy to out-compete the microbe’s draining of the body’s energy
resources. Enhancing the ACE pathway can, therefore, assist in the
recovery of stealth virus infections of the brain and presumably help
restore some of the lost KELEA attracting capacity of the brain. The
level of recovery of emotional wellness is likely to be limited by the
extent of the prior structural brain damage due to the stealth virus
infection. Knowing that improved emotional wellness is achievable
provides a powerful incentive for individuals to engage in further
efforts to boost their ACE pathway. One approach is to wear a pouch
containing KELEA activated water. Another is to humidify indoor
living areas with KELEA activated water.
Natural Sources of KELEA Activated Water
Several locations around the world have been identified as
having water with exceptional healing qualities. A pool in Bethesda,
Jerusalem is referred to in the Bible as being able to heal the
person who first stepped into the pool after the water had been
agitated by an angel. Mecca was established at the site of a source
of naturally healing water. Numerous medical spas exist around the
world in which visitors seemingly benefit medically and certainly
cosmetically by soaking in the water. While these benefits are
typically attributed to the contained minerals, peat, humic acids, or
other components contained within the water, it is more likely that
the water itself is activated. This inference can now be tested using
a series of proprietary assays, including analysis of the water after
Activated water can also be produced from regular water
using two basic approaches. The first is the addition to the water
of dipolar compounds, including mineral oxides, herbal tinctures,
antioxidants, certain gases, and activated water by itself. These
compounds are collectively referred to as enerceuticalsTM. They can
attract KELEA and transfer the energy into the water. Electrolysis
can also render water more dipolar. The second approach is to
place water in an area with a heightened level of KELEA. The
heightened level of KELEA can be established using various
oscillating electrical devices. It can also occur around certain
enerceuticals, including containers of activated water. Given the
enormous range of potential uses of KELEA activated water, the
opportunity exists to productively utilize and optimize each of the
many available activating methods for different applications. These
include improved human and animal health, increased agricultural
productivity, and numerous industrial applications,
The overall emotional wellness of those living on earth appears
to be declining. It is proposed that the fluctuating electrical
activity of the brain enables the body to attract a life force energy
from the environment. This life force is being called KELEA, an
abbreviation for Kinetic Energy Limiting Electrostatic Attraction.
It is presumably being delivered to the earth in conjunction
with cosmic rays, but now at reduced levels due to manmade
electromagnetic radiation. The KELEA attracting capacity of the
brain can be further reduced in individuals infected with brain-
damaging stealth adapted viruses; some of which are derived from
vaccines. A direct correlation is proposed between the brain’s
KELEA attracting capacity and an individual’s level of emotional
wellness. The amount of KELEA available to the body also correlates
with the level of a non-food-derived source of cellular energy called
the alternative cellular energy (ACE) pathway. Emotional wellness.
is seemingly a measure of the ACE pathway. This pathway also
provides a non-immunological defense mechanism against viruses,
including stealth adapted viruses. It promotes the non-scarring
repair of damaged tissues, including burns. The ACE pathway has
many additional functions in the body, which can be impaired if
the body has insufficient cellular energy. Water has the capacity
to absorb KELEA and can be used as a potential additional source
of KELEA for the body. In particular, KELEA activated water can
compensate for the reduced levels of KELEA reaching the earth
surface. A convenient use of KELEA activated water is in wearable
waterceutical pouches. Indoor air spaces can also be humidified
with KELEA activated water. Extensive clinical trials are needed to
validate and optimize these approaches.

KELEA, Cosmic Rays, Cloud Formation and Electromagnetic Radiation: Electropollution as a Possible Explanation for Climate ChangeW. John Martin*
Institute of Progressive Medicine, South Pasadena, CA, USA.
DOI: 10.4236/acs.2016.62015 PDF HTML XML 3,032
The basic premise of this article is that human generated electromagnetic radiation is contributing to global warming. It may do so by diverting an energy force termed KELEA (kinetic energy limiting electrostatic attraction) from its presumed association with cosmic rays. Cosmic ray delivered KELEA is viewed as normally participating in the formation of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN). It may do so by transforming electrostatically inert particles into electrostatic aerosols capable of acting as CCN. The resulting clouds act as a reflective barrier to some of the infrared radiation from the sun and, thereby, reduce the earth’s heat. This article proposes that increasing levels of electromagnetic radiation in the atmosphere is reducing the capacity of cosmic rays to deliver adequate KELEA to maintain climate stability through optimal cloud formation. Specifically, the fluctuating electrical fields accompanying electromagnetic radiation may do so by competitively withdrawing some of the KELEA from the incoming cosmic rays. Previously described studies by Dr. Wilhelm Reich attributed to an energy force termed orgone, are consistent with weather activity being inducible using a device that likely delivers KELEA to the atmosphere. In addition to the foregoing consideration, there are many agricultural and industrial applications of KELEA activated fluids that can reduce carbon emissions. It is important that the scope of climate science be broadened to include a detailed understanding of KELEA and of its many potential practical applications in addressing global warming.

Martin, W. (2016) KELEA, Cosmic Rays, Cloud Formation and Electromagnetic Radiation: Electropollution as a Possible Explanation for Climate Change. Atmospheric and Climate Sciences, 6, 174-179. doi: 10.4236/acs.2016.62015.
The reality of climate change is finally being acknowledged by world leaders. While of little comfort to those already subjected to disastrous weather conditions, there is optimism that efforts to reduce industrial carbon emissions will lead to more stability in the world’s weather system. Climatologists are unlikely to be aware of recent research pointing to a natural force termed KELEA (kinetic energy limiting electrostatic attraction). KELEA is considered a fundamental force of Nature  . Its primary purpose may be to prevent the fusion and possible annihilation of opposite electrical charges. KELEA is presumably attracted to separated electrical charges in a manner that provides a barrier to actual fusion of opposite charges as they approach one another due to increasing electrostatic attraction. KELEA may similarly provide the repulsive force between like charges. A further proposal is that KELEA may operate to weaken the strength of intermolecular hydrogen bonding between molecules  . This effect has been most clearly documented with water, but also can be seen with other liquids, including gasoline  . It may also influence intermolecular electrostatic attraction in gaseous fluids, such as propane and natural gas.
2. KELEA Activation of Water
Various dipolar compounds with separated electrical charges can directly attract KELEA from the environment. Certain of these compounds can transfer KELEA to nearby water, possibly in an oscillatory manner  . Water can also be activated by being placed within energy fields, typically created by the repetitive on-off switching of electrical devices  - . The attracted and subsequently released concentrated levels of KELEA are apparently sufficient to directly activate nearby regular water.
KELEA activated water is characterized by having lowered surface tension and reduced freezing and boiling points and by becoming increasingly volatile (measurable as weight loss in closed but not completely sealed containers)  -  . At a sufficient level of activation, the separated electrical charges on the water molecules can directly absorb KELEA leading to further activation of the water and to the activation of added water. This principle explains the retention of biological activity in dilute homeopathic remedies   . It also allows for the subsequent removal of the water activating compounds from the activated water by decanting or by zero residue filtration  .
The continuing extraction of KELEA by activated fluids can occur over periods of several months. This was shown by the progressively increasing vapor pressure of activated fluids stored within initially flaccid, sealed plastic containers  . In performing these and similar experiments, it was clearly apparent that KELEA attraction was not restricted to daylight hours. Yet, there were notable fluctuations in KELEA over time, which could not be correlated with time of day or night, temperature or the phase of the moon  . While not excluding the importance of local influences, such as the nearby presence of dipolar compounds or previously activated fluids, it was concluded that KELEA is variably, but constantly present as a natural environmental force.
3. KELEA, Cosmic Rays and Cloud Formation
Since KELEA is a feature that accompanies separated electrical charges and cosmic rays are electrical charged particles, it is reasonable to assume that KELEA is continually being delivered to the earth in association with cosmic rays. Interestingly, if KELEA is the repulsive force between like electrical charges, it could assist in maintaining the flow of cosmic rays within the universe. KELEA may also explain some of the phenomena currently attributed to dark energy, such as the expanding universe  .
Drs. Sevenmark, Shaviv and others  -  have proposed that cosmic rays promote low level cloud formation in a manner that the clouds then act as reflecting shields repelling some of the sun’s infrared (heating) radiation. According to these investigators, electrical particles emitted by the sun (solar wind) periodically divert some cosmic rays from directly entering the earth’s atmosphere and may, thereby, reduce cloud formation. It has proven difficult, however, to directly correlate fluctuating levels of cosmic rays and solar activity with changes in the earth’s temperature  .
Clouds form from water condensing on electrically charged aerosol particles termed cloud condensation nuclei (CCN). Others have presumed that the charged cosmic rays transferred their electrical charges to uncharged, inert particles in the atmosphere and, thereby, create CCN. As an alternative explanation, the inert particles may actually have internal electrical charges that are somewhat masked by electrostatic attraction. In this state they do not act as effective CCN. They may, nevertheless, be sufficiently charged to attract the KELEA accompanying cosmic rays, leading to more effective charge separation and CCN formation. Similarly, electrical charges on water molecules may become better exposed by KELEA adding to the greater consolidation of water onto the KELEA generated CCN.
4. KELEA Diversion to Electromagnetic Radiation
The basic premise of this paper is that some of the KELEA presumably being delivered to the earth via cosmic rays is being increasingly diverted away from the formation of CCN by its binding to electromagnetic transmissions; resulting in reduced formation of earth cooling, infrared-reflecting clouds. Although this premise can not presently be directly tested, it is consistent with several experimental observations. First, KELEA is presumably attracted to the vicinity of converging electromagnetic fields established using sets of opposing pairs of light emitting devices  . This conclusion stems from apparent KELEA-related health benefits occurring in individuals spending several hours in “energy” rooms equipped with two of more pairs of facing computers. The computer screens, which are continually displaying complex changing patterns, are placed so that their light emissions are directed to a centralized area within the room (www.eesystems.com). The attraction and subsequent release of KELEA (scalar energy) is predictably occurring because of fluctuating propulsion towards one another of opposite electrical charges from the electrical fields of the converging light paths. Accordingly, a similar effect can be achieved by using four diagonally placed, inwardly facing, LED traffic lights with an overhead strobe light  . A heightened level of KELEA in the therapy room is supported by a reduction from 72 dynes/sq. cm to <50 dynes/sq. cm in the surface tension of water placed into the therapy room. (The reduction in surface tension is taken as a surrogate marker for water activation). Water placed within the area illuminated by the traffic lights similarly becomes activated, as shown by its increased volatility  and by its lower surface tension.
Another important observation is that when the opposing computers within the scalar energy room are operating, the normally present 60 Hz electromagnetic field (EMF) within the room is no longer detectable using an EmdexII/1400 EMF meter. Moreover, a considerable reduction also occurs in the ambient radio frequencies as measured using a Wandel & Geltermann EMR-30 radio frequency meter (unpublished).
It is reasonable, therefore, to propose that KELEA can be competitively transferred between different sources of available electromagnetic radiation. The worldwide transmission of electromagnetic energies is continuing to increase with technological advances in communications and with more extensive transmissions of electrical power  . This has been especially marked in the Northern Hemisphere, which has warmed in excess of the Southern Hemisphere  . Some of the KELEA that might normally participate in cloud formation may instead be diverted to the increasing atmospheric levels of mankind generated electromagnetic radiation. Global warming may, therefore, comprise an added feature of what is commonly called “electropollution.”
The primary focus of potential adverse effects of electromagnetic radiation has been on human health. Of particular concern is the possibility of brain damage resulting from the use of cell phones  . The mechanism of damage has been somewhat over simplified as resulting from the local induction of heat by the microwaves relayed by the cell phones. This suggestion of temperature related damage is not well supported by experimental data. Nor does it explain the unique sensitivity displayed by certain individuals to the use of cell phones. It is noteworthy that upon questioning, many of the affected individuals have considerable difficulties in coherently describing their disorder. This cognitive disorder is likely by itself to be a reflection of an underlying brain illness. The author has recently proposed that the fluctuating electrical charges in the brain normally act as an antenna to attract KELEA into the body  . The KELEA could function in enhancing the membrane potential of neurons and, thereby, assist in the specificity of various brain functions. Brain attracted KELEA may also provide an added kinetic property to the body’s fluids; improving many biological functions. Mental illnesses are reasonably viewed as a deficiency of KELEA. The adverse effect of using a cell phone may be explained by the further withdrawal of KELEA from the brain. The concept that microwaves can extract KELEA from activated water is consistent with the recommended avoidance of exposing homeopathic remedies to microwaves. Similar considerations of possible withdrawal of KELEA can apply to reported adverse effects of other sources of electromagnetic radiation on human and animal health and on agriculture.
6. Evidence for the Two-Way Transfer of KELEA
A yet to be explained phenomenon in performing some of the water activation tests has been the repeated documentation of minor increases in the weight of certain water containing vials compared to the prior measurements of the same vial. The increases are clearly not due to differences in the settings of the weighing balance, since the changes are seen with only certain vials within a given experiment. A larger study has been completed confirming that aluminum foil can also show significant, although minor, periodic fluctuations in weight. These changes are consistent with the addition and release of KELEA leading respectively to an increase and a decrease in measured weight.
This observation raises two possibilities. First, in addition to increased volatility of KELEA activated water, the release of KELEA may lead to a slight loss in the weight manifestation of gravity. The second conclusion is that KELEA activation is presumably reversible by means other than the selective dissipation by evaporation of the more kinetically active water molecules. It was previously suggested that the base of tall trees may be able to remove KELEA from activated water as a necessary requirement for the cohesive transport of water to the upper branches of the tree  . While further studies are clearly needed, these considerations are consistent with KELEA being a removable quality from various carriers. They are also consistent with the basic premise of this article that KELEA may be diverted from cloud formation by becoming attached to the electrical charges accompanying electromagnetic radiation.
7. KELEA and Orgone Energy
It is useful to consider the possible relationship between KELEA and some of the earlier described energies that have been largely discounted by mainstream science. These forces include the radiant or impulse energy proposed by Nikola Tesla  . It is also consistent with the odic energy identified by Karl von Reichenbach  and the orgone energy described by Wilhelm Reich  . Although not formally presented as scientific literature, Dr. Reich’s studies and subsequently described observations by Mr. Trevor Constable  and Dr. James DeMeo  are particularly germane to the issue of KELEA and climate change. They were each able to induce rain using devices, inappropriately termed cloud busters, which seemingly transmit a non-conventional energy termed orgone. The initial devices comprised no more than upwardly pointing hollow metal tubes with one end placed in flowing water. Conceivably, the orgone devices projected KELEA from the activated water to the atmosphere, where it facilitated the condensation of water vapor into water droplets. This presumably occurred through the formation of CCN. Projected orgone energy was also stated to dissipate smog, potentially by allowing for the formation of larger aerosol particles that sediment. Unfortunately, detailed results from some of the studies relating to orgone were suppressed, while others have been rendered somewhat questionable under the cover of being proprietary. Still, the descriptions of successful manipulation of weather patterns are sufficiently compelling that they cannot be left unaddressed.
8. KELEA Activated Fluids Can Reduce Carbon Emission
An attractive aspect of linking global cooling with KELEA is that an understanding of the science of fluid activation can provide many additional opportunities to reduce global warming beyond the potential of providing the earth with more efficient cloud cover. Specifically, utilizing KELEA activated fluids can immediately address the more widely accepted, although still not formally proven argument that global warming is primarily due to the increased burning of fossil fuels. Published studies have shown that less energy to required to heat KELEA activated water. This alone can provide substantial savings in the operations of power plants and in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems  . There is also less corrosion and scale formation in metal pipes carrying activated water  . Concrete prepared in activated water is less brittle with a higher tensile strength leading to reduced quantities required in construction (unpublished). Many other industrial applications are under consideration, not only with regards to water but also as applied to gasoline, diesel and gases. Activated gasoline burns more completely, with less hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emission and at a reduced temperature.
There are also potential enormous benefits of activating water in agriculture and animal husbandry. Using simple means of KELEA activation of water led to increased productivity and longer shelf life of harvested rice, sugarcane and other crops  . It also increased the resistance to infectious diseases and rodent infestation of the crops  . There is likely to be more efficient uptake of water by the treated crop fields, such that the overall demand for agricultural water can be decreased, as can the use of fertilizers. Presently unusable contaminated water can be easily cleansed through the KELEA activation process for reuse (unpublished). The many potential human health benefits of consuming KELEA activated water have also been discussed    . It will be of interest to match the relative benefits in reducing global warming by providing more cloud cover versus reducing carbon emission. Certainly both approaches should be actively pursued.
This article outlines a possible scenario in which KELEA (kinetic energy limiting electrostatic attraction) brought to the earth by cosmic rays, participates in the formation of heat-reflective cloud cover by activating cloud condensation nuclei (CCN). This process may be rendered less effective if some of the KELEA is removed from cosmic rays by its attachment to fluctuating electrical fields that accompany the increasing electromagnetic radiations present within the earth’s atmosphere. The proposed reduction in cloud formation may potentially be remediated by devising alternative means of delivering KELEA to the atmosphere. Moreover, an understanding of KELEA can immediately lead to significant worldwide reductions in carbon emissions.

Relationships between mind and body have gradually become accepted. Yogic practices cause modulation of the immune system. Transcendental meditation (TM) is a specific form of mantra meditation. We reported previously different plasma levels of catecholamines and pituitary hormones in TM practitioners comparing with a control group, and patterns of the daytime secretion of these hormones different from those normally described.
The aim of the following study is to evaluate the immune system in these meditation practitioners, by determining leukocytes and lymphocytes subsets.
TM group consisted of 19 subjects who regularly practice either TM or the more advanced Sidhi-TM technique. A control group consisted of 16 healthy subjects who had not previously used any relaxation technique. Total leukocytes, granulocytes, lymphocytes and monocytes were counted by an automated quantitative hematology analyzer, whereas lymphocytes subsets were determined by flow cytometry. Samples were taken from each subject at 0900 h after an overnight fast.
The results indicated that the TM group had higher values than the control group in CD3+CD4−CD8+ lymphocytes (P < 0.05), B lymphocytes (P < 0.01) and natural killer cells (P < 0.01), whereas CD3+CD4+CD8− lymphocytes showed low levels in meditation practitioners (P < 0.001). No significant differences were observed in total leukocytes, granulocytes, monocytes, total lymphocytes or CD3+ lymphocytes comparing both groups.
The technique of meditation studied seems to have a significant effect on immune cells, manifesting in the different circulating levels of lymphocyte subsets analyzed. The significant effect of TM on the neuroendocrine axis and its relationship with the immune system may partly explain our results.
Keywords: Immune system, psychoneuroimmunology, stress, transcendental meditation, yoga
Relationships between mind and body have gradually become accepted. Since Ader and Cohen coined the term psychoneuroimmunology, there is a growing body of evidence on this interaction. The neuroendocrine system is considered to be the link between the immune system and the psyche. Yoga has been known as a spiritual exercise to improve the mental state, inducing physiological changes based on these relationships. Yogic practices cause modulation of the immune system.
Transcendental meditation (TM), the main technology behind the Maharishi Vedic approach to health, is a simple, effortless and stylized form of physical and mental relaxation. This technique is one of the most widely studied. Subjects practicing TM show specific electroencephalographic and metabolic patterns, changes in hormonal concentrations, low anxiety levels and improve levels of health.[4,5] In previous studies, our group reported modifications in the daily secretion pattern and lowered blood levels of catecholamines, β-endorphins and adrenocorticotropic hormone. We speculated with modification of hypothalamic and hypophyseal activity due to the regular practice of meditation.[6,7,8]
A few studies have focused on the TM effects on the immune system demonstrating low percentage of functional lymphocyte beta-adrenergic receptor in practitioners and modulation on leukocyte deoxyribonucleic acid repair. To the best of our knowledge no previous research has been published on lymphocyte levels with this technique......

Stroke, or ischaemic brain damage, is of great geriatric importance being the third most common cause of death after cancer and heart diseases in developed countries. Despite such high frequency, its management has received inadequate attention. Many studies have shown the role of free radicals in the pathogenesis of ischaemic brain damage. Search for safe and effective antioxidant and free radial scavenger agents, therefore, appear to be a promising approach for stroke therapy. Gold, widely used in modern medicine for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, is highly valued for various medicinal uses in Indian systems of medicine. Traditional gold preparations are attributed with tonic/rejuvenating and antioxidant properties. Our earlier studies revealed interesting analgesic, immunostimulant, adaptogenic and glycogen sparing properties in these preparations, but their effects in cerebral ischaemia have not been investigated. This prompted us to initiate the present study using global and focal models of ischaemia in albino rats. Enzymatic parameters (lipid peroxidase, reduced glutathione, catalase, glutathione reductase, glutathione-S-transferase, glutatione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase) were employed to assess ischaemic brain damage and its modulation. Significant restoration of altered values to near normal levels by Ayurvedic Swarna Bhasma and Unani Kushta Tila Kalan (25 mg/kg, orally for 10 days), suggest potentials for gold preparations in cerebrovascular diseases. The preparations deserve more scientific attention for possible therapeutic

Attenuation of stress-elicited brain catecholamines, serotonin and plasma corticosterone levels by calcined gold preparations used in Indian system of medicine
Zahoor Ahmad Shah et al. Basic Clin Pharmacol Toxicol. 2005 Jun.
Problems associated with mental health have increased tremendously in modern times. The search for effective and safe alternatives should, therefore, be pursued vigorously. Forced immobilization is one of the best explored models of stress in rats and the role of corticosterone, serotonin (5-HT) and catecholamines, i.e. norepinephrine, epinephrine, dopamine is well documented. We investigated the therapeutic potential of two gold preparations (Ayurvedic Swarna Bhasma and Unani Kushta Tila Kalan) in restraint induced stress at different time points of 1 hr, 2 hr and 4 hr. We pretreated rats with two gold preparations, Ayurvedic Swarna Bhasma and Unani Kushta Tila Kalan (25 mg/kg, orally for 10 days) prior to restraint stress. Brain catecholamine, serotonin and plasma corticosterone levels were determined following 1, 2 and 4 hr restraint stress, using HPLC and also plasma corticosterone using luminescence spectrophotometry. Gold preparations restored restraint stress-induced elevation in levels of brain catecholamines (norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopmine), 5-HT and plasma corticosterone to near normal levels. Gold, widely used in modern medicine for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, is highly valued for various medicinal uses in Indian systems of medicine. Traditional gold preparations are attributed with tonic/rejuvenating and antioxidant properties. Our earlier studies revealed interesting analgesic, immunostimulant, adaptogenic and glycogen sparing properties in these preparations, but their effects in stress and depression have not been investigated yet. Significant restoration of altered values to near normal levels suggest potentials for gold preparations in stress and depression

Many infectious diseases have yet to be conquered by modern medicine. This is generally attributed to both a failure of the immune system and the lack of an effective anti-microbial pharmaceutical. Infections can be regarded as a competitive process between the microbe and the host for cellular energy-generated resources. Cells obtain energy not only from the metabolism of food but also from the alternative cellular energy (ACE) pathway. This pathway utilizes an environmental force termed as KELEA (kinetic energy limiting electrostatic attraction), which provides an added kinetic/chemical energy to the body's fluids. The ACE pathway can be enhanced through the use of KELEA activated water, which is currently available under different names from several sources. Enhancing the body's ACE pathway, including the use of a wearable waterceutical ™, provides a novel means of potentially increasing the body's resistance against all infectious diseases.

A direct approach to limit airborne viral transmissions is to inactivate them within a short time of their production. Germicidal ultraviolet light, typically at 254 nm, is effective in this context but, used directly, can be a health hazard to skin and eyes. By contrast, far-UVC light (207–222 nm) efficiently kills pathogens potentially without harm to exposed human tissues. We previously demonstrated that 222-nm far-UVC light efficiently kills airborne influenza virus and we extend those studies to explore far-UVC efficacy against airborne human coronaviruses alpha HCoV-229E and beta HCoV-OC43. Low doses of 1.7 and 1.2 mJ/cm2 inactivated 99.9% of aerosolized coronavirus 229E and OC43, respectively. As all human coronaviruses have similar genomic sizes, far-UVC light would be expected to show similar inactivation efficiency against other human coronaviruses including SARS-CoV-2. Based on the beta-HCoV-OC43 results, continuous far-UVC exposure in occupied public locations at the current regulatory exposure limit (~3 mJ/cm2/hour) would result in ~90% viral inactivation in ~8 minutes, 95% in ~11 minutes, 99% in ~16 minutes and 99.9% inactivation in ~25 minutes. Thus while staying within current regulatory dose limits, low-dose-rate far-UVC exposure can potentially safely provide a major reduction in the ambient level of airborne coronaviruses in occupied public locations.

Recently, Ratnesar-Shumate et al  reported rapid sunlight inactivation of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in simulated saliva and in complete growth medium (gMEM). Independently and essentially simultaneously, Sagripanti and Lytle  introduced a theory for sunlight inactivation of SARS-CoV-2, building on their earlier work with similar viruses . To the best of our knowledge, these data and theory had not been compared. When establishing this comparison, the experimentally reported sunlight inactivation in Ratnesar-Shumate et al  is several times faster than predicted by theory, suggesting that additional experiments and hypotheses may be needed to fully elucidate the mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 sunlight inactivation.
Briefly, the theory of Sagripanti and Lytle [2, 3] considers direct photochemical damage to viral RNA, which is maximal for UVC (wavelengths between 200 and 280 nm). The effectiveness of UVC is expressed as the exposure that produces one e-fold reduction in infectious virion concentration (ie, to 37% of the initial value) at a wavelength of 254 nm, which is written as D37 . Because larger D37 implies slower inactivation, D37 is effectively an inverse sensitivity. Based on genome size, for Coronaviridae, Lytle and Sagripanti estimated D37 between 2.5 and 3.9 J/m2, and D37 = 3.0 J/m2 for SARS-CoV-2 ; this value is used in the calculations presented here. Although no UVC reaches the Earth’s surface, longer UV wavelengths can still affect viral RNA, albeit with decreased sensitivity. To account for this, Lytle and Sagripanti  introduced an action spectrum, expressed as the ratio between sensitivity at a given wavelength λ and the UVC sensitivity at 254 nm........

Abstract: Smart buildings deploying 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) are viewed as the next
sustainable solution that can be seamlessly integrated in all sectors of the built environment. The
benefits are well advertised and range from inducing wellness and monitoring health, amplifying
productivity, to energy savings. Comparatively, potential negative risks are less known and mostly
relate to cyber-security threats and radiation effects. This meta-integrative qualitative synthesis
research sought to determine the possible underlying demerits from developing smart buildings,
and whether they outweigh the possible benefits. The study identified five master themes as threats
of smart buildings: a surfeit of data centers, the proliferation of undersea cables, the consternation
of cyber-security threats, electromagnetic pollution, and E-waste accumulation. Further, the paper
discusses the rebound impacts on humans and the environment as smart buildings’ actualization
becomes a reality. The study reveals that, although some aspects of smart buildings do have their
tangible benefits, the potential repercussions from these not-so-discussed threats could undermine
the former when all perspectives and interactions are analyzed collectively rather than in isolation.

This review article extends previous scientific definitions of the biofield (endogenous energy fields of the body) to include nonclassical and quantum energy fields. The biofield is defined further in terms of its functional property to act as a resonance target for external forms of energy used as treatment modalities in energy medicine.
Reclaim Your Health & Freedom, The Biogetica Way
The functional role of the biofield in the body's innate self-healing mechanisms is hypothesized, based on the concept of bioinformation which, mediated by consciousness, functions globally at the quantum level to supply coherence, phase, spin, and pattern information to regulate and heal all physiologic processes. This model is used to explain a wide variety of anomalies reported in the scientific literature, which can not be explained by traditional biophysics and bioelectromagnetics.

Complex intracellular inclusions in the brain of a child with a stealth virus encephalopathy.
Experimental and Molecular Pathology, 01 Jun 2003, 74(3):197-209
DOI: 10.1016/s0014-4800(03)00038-8 PMID: 12782006
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.
