Introduction
Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element
nutrient for humans and animals. It regulates a healthy
metabolism and inhibits the toxic effects of heavy metals
in the body [1]. The rich natural sources for Se are
meat, fish, mushrooms, cereals, nuts, etc. This can be
obtained from mineral supplements [1,2]. It is one of
the key components of unusual amino acids
selenocysteine and selenomethionine; selenium
enzymes, and about 30 selenoproteins [3]. It is a potent
antioxidant, which protects against oxidative damage,
infections, nervous system; plays critical roles in
reproduction, DNA synthesis, and thyroid hormone
metabolism [1,4,5]. A poor selenium containing diet
and/or genetic problems may lead to selenium deficiency
in the body [6]. Se deficiency in the body is responsible
for the critical pathophysiology of many diseases, i.e.,
cancer, diabetes, male infertility, muscle disorders,
neurological disorders, cardiovascular disease,
degenerative ailments, viral diseases, etc. [7-9].
Therefore, Se is recommended as a daily supplement in
a number of countries. But, excess intake of Se may
cause adverse health effects [9,10]. It is absorbed by
the body in the form selenite which is more than 80
percent.
The physicochemical properties of any
pharmaceutical/nutraceutical compound play a crucial
role in its stability, solubility, bioavailability, and
therapeutic efficacy in the body [11]. The biggest
challenge for pharmaceutical scientists is improving the
quality of pharmaceutical/nutraceutical compounds for
better therapeutic efficacy. Scientifically, the Trivedi
Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment
(Biofield Energy Healing Treatment) has been proven to
have a significant impact on the particle size, surface
area, thermal properties, and bioavailability of
pharmaceutical and nutraceutical compounds [12-14].
The Trivedi Effect® is a natural and the only scientifically
proven phenomenon in which an expert can harness this
inherently intelligent energy from the Universe and
transmit it anywhere on the planet through the possible
mediation of neutrinos [15]. Biofield is a unique,
infinite, para-dimensional electromagnetic field exists
surrounding the body, originating from the continuous
movements of the charged particles, ions, cells, blood/
lymph flow, brain functions, heart function, etc. This
Biofield Energy Therapy (energy medicine) has been
reported to have substantial outcomes against various
disease conditions and to maintain the overall quality of
life [15,16]. The National Institutes of Health/National
Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine
(NIH/NCCAM) recommend and included the Energy
therapy under the Complementary and Alternative
Medicine (CAM) category along with other therapies,
medicines and practices such as Ayurvedic medicine,
naturopathy, homeopathy, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, yoga,
chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation, meditation,
massage, acupuncture, acupressure, hypnotherapy,
Reiki, Rolfing structural integration, mindfulness,
aromatherapy, cranial sacral therapy, applied prayer,
etc. The CAM has been accepted by the most of the U.S.
population with several advantages [17,18]. Similarly,
the Trivedi Effect® Treatment also has a significant
impact on the characteristic properties of the metals,
ceramics, and polymers, organic compounds, crops,
livestock, microorganisms, and cancer cells [19-29].
These outstanding experimental results motivated the
authors to determine the impact of the Trivedi Effect®-
Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment on the
physicochemical and thermal properties of selenium
using particle size analysis (PSA), powder X-ray
diffraction (PXRD), and differential scanning calorimetry
(DSC).
Materials and Methods
Chemicals and Reagents
The selenium (Se) powder sample was procured
from Sigma Aldrich, USA and the other chemicals
required during the experiments were of the analytical
standard available in India.
Consciousness
Energy Healing Treatment
Strategies
The test sample Se powder used in the
experiment was divided into two parts. One part of the
Se powder sample was received the Trivedi
Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment
remotely under standard laboratory conditions for 3
minutes by the renowned Biofield Energy Healer, Gopal
Nayak, India, known as the treated sample. The second
part of the sample did not receive the Biofield Energy
Treatment and was called the control sample. Further,
the control sample was treated with sham healer for

the comparison purposes. The shamhealer did not
have any knowledge about the Biofield Energy
Treatment. The Biofield Energy Treated sample and
untreated Se powder sample were both kept in sealed
conditions and characterized using PSA, PXRD, and DSC
analytical techniques.
Characterization
Particle Size Analysis (PSA)
The particle size analysis of Se powder was
performed with the help of Malvern Mastersizer 2000, of
the UK, with a detection range between 0.01 µm to
3000 µm using the wet method [30, 31]. The sample
unit (Hydro MV) was filled with a sunflower oil
dispersant medium and the stirrer operated at 2500
rpm. Particle size distribution analysis of Se powder was
performed to obtain the average particle size. Where, d
(0.1) μm, d(0.5) μm, d(0.9) μm represent particle
diameter corresponding to 10%, 50%, and 90% of the
cumulative distribution. D(4,3) represents the average
mass-volume diameter, and SSA is the specific surface
area (m2/g). The calculations were done by using
software Mastersizer Ver. 5.54.
The percent change in particle size (d) for Se
powder at below 10% level (d10), 50% level (d50), 90%
level (d90), and D(4,3) was calculated using the following
equation 1:
(1)
Where dControl and dTreated are the particle sizes (μm) at
below 10% level (d10), 50% level (d50), and 90% level
(d90) of the control and the Biofield Energy Treated
samples, respectively.
The percent change in surface area (S) was
calculated using the following equation 2:
(2)
Where SControl and STreated are the surface area of the
control and the Biofield Energy Treated Se, respectively.
Powder X-ray Diffraction (PXRD) Analysis
The PXRD analysis of Se powder sample was
executed with the help of Rigaku MiniFlex-II Desktop
X-ray diffractometer (Japan) [32, 33]. The Cu Kα
radiation source tube output voltage and output current
were 30 kV and 15 mA, respectively. Scans were
performed at room temperature. The size of individual
crystallites was calculated from PXRD data using the
Scherrers formula (3)
G = kλ/βcosθ (3)
Where k is the equipment constant (0.94), G is the
crystallite size in nm, λ is the radiation wavelength
(0.154056 nm for Kα1 emission), β is the full-width at
half maximum (FWHM), and θ is the Bragg angle [34].
The percent change in crystallite size (G) of Se
was calculated using the following equation 4:
(4)
Where GControl and GTreated are the crystallite size of the
control and the Biofield Energy Treated samples,
respectively.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
The DSC analysis of Se powder sample was
performed with the help of DSC Q200, TA instruments.
Sample of ~1-2 mg was loaded to the aluminium sample
pan at a heating rate of 10ºC/min from 30°C to
350°C [30, 31]. The % change in melting point (T) was
calculated using the following equation 5:
(5)
Where TControl and TTreated are the melting point of the
control and the Biofield Energy Treated samples,
respectively.
The percent change in the latent heat of fusion
(ΔH) was calculated using following equation 6:
(6)
Where ΔHControl and ΔHTreated are the latent heat of fusion
of the control and the Biofield Energy Treated Se,
respectively.
Results and Discussion
Particle Size Analysis (PSA)
The particle size distribution analysis data of
both the control and the Biofield Energy Treated Se
powder samples are presented in Table 1. The particle
size values of the control Se powder at d10, d50, d90, and
D(4,3) were 9.859 µm, 26.595 µm, 53.601 µm, and

29.513 µm, respectively. Similarly, the particle sizes of
the Biofield Energy Treated sample at d10, d50, d90, and
D(4,3) were 6.143 µm, 22.775 µm, 51.29 µm, and
26.095 µm, respectively. The particle size values of the
Biofield Energy Treated Se sample were significantly
decreased by 37.69%, 14.36%, 4.31%, and 11.58% at
d10, d50, d90, and D(4,3), respectively compared to the
control sample. Therefore, the specific surface area of
the Biofield Energy Treated sample (0.433 m2/g) was
significantly increased by 33.64% compared with the
control sample (0.324 m2/g). The results suggested that
the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing
Treatment might act as an external force for breaking
larger particles to smaller one hence increasing the
surface area of Se particles significantly. Pharmaceutical
compounds with smaller particle size increase the
surface area and improve the dissolution rate, and
bioavailability in the body [11, 35]. Therefore, the
Biofield Energy Treated Se powder would offer better
solubility, bioavailability, and therapeutic efficacy
compared to the untreated sample.
Powder X-ray Diffraction (PXRD) Analysis
The diffractogram of the control Se powder
sample showed sharp and intense peaks at Braggs
angle (2q) near to 23.32°, 29.64°, 41.06°, 43.53°,
45.17°, 51.69°, and 61.12° (Figure 1). Similarly, the
diffractogram of the Biofield Energy Treated sample
showed sharp and intense peaks at Braggs angle (2q)
near to 23.65°, 29.92°, 41.51°, 43.91°, 45.54°, 51.87°,
and 61.57° (Figure 1). The sharp and intense peaks of
both the diffractograms specified that the samples were
crystalline. The highest peak intensity of the control and
Biofield Energy Treated sample were observed at 2θ
equal to 29.64° and 29.92°, respectively (Table 2,
entry 2). The peak intensities of the Biofield Energy
Treated sample were significantly decreased in the
range from 5.23% to 100% compared to the control
sample. However, the crystallite sizes of the Biofield
Energy Treated Se sample were significantly increased
in the range from 75% to 111.7% compared to the
control sample. Overall, the average crystallite size of
the Biofield Energy Treated Se powder (96.94 nm) was
significantly decreased by 7.81% compared to the
control sample (105.16 nm).
As per the literature, the peak intensity of each
diffraction face on the crystalline compound changes
according to the crystal morphology and alterations in
the XRD pattern provide the proof of polymorphic
transitions [36-38]. The Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness
Energy Healing Treatment probably produced the new
polymorphic form of Se through the mediation of
neutrinos [15]. Different polymorphic forms of
pharmaceuticals have significant effects on drug
performance, such as bioavailability, therapeutic
efficacy, and toxicity, because of their physicochemical
properties are different from the original form [39, 40].
Therefore, the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy
Healing Treated Se would be better in designing novel
pharmaceutical and nutraceutical formulations.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) Analysis
The thermal analysis has been performed to
characterize the thermal behavior of the Biofield Energy
Treated Se compared to the control sample (Table 3).
The thermograms of both the control and Biofield
Energy Treated sample showed sharp endothermic
peaks at 222.1°C and 221.5°C, respectively (Figure 2).
The melting point of the Biofield Energy Treated sample
was slightly decreased by 0.27% compared with the
control sample (Table 3).
The latent heat of fusion (∆Hfusion) of the Biofield
Energy Treated sample (78.23 J/g) was significantly
increased by 12.37% compared with the control sample
(69.62 J/g) (Table 3). The significant change in the
Hfusion can be attributed to the change in the molecular
chains and the crystal structure of that compound [41].
Thus, it can be assumed that the Biofield Energy
Treatment might be responsible for the improved
thermal stability of the treated Se sample compared to
the control sample.
Conclusion
The Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy
Healing Treatment (Biofield Energy Treatment) showed
significant effects on the crystallite size, particle size,
surface area, and thermal properties of the selenium
powder. The particle size values of the Biofield Energy
Treated sample powder were significantly decreased by
37.69%, 14.36%, 4.31%, and 11.58% at d10, d50, d90,
and D(4,3), respectively. Therefore, the specific surface
area of the Biofield Energy Treatment sample was
significantly increased by 33.64% compared to the

Sulfamethoxazole is a sulfonamide bacteriostatic antibiotic which is commonly used for the treatment of infections caused by bacteria. In this study, the impact of the Trivedi Effect®-Biofield Energy Healing Treatment on the structural properties and the isotopic abundance ratio of sulfamethoxazole was studied using LC-MS and GC-MS spectroscopy. Sulfamethoxazole sample was divided into two parts, one part of sulfamethoxazole was considered as control (no Biofield Energy Treatment was provided), while the second part was received the Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment remotely by a famous Biofield Energy Healer, Dahryn Trivedi and termed as a treated sample. The LC-MS spectra of both the samples at retention time (Rt ) 2.5 minutes exhibited the mass of the deprotonated molecular ion peak at m/z 252 [M-H]- . The peak area of the treated sulfamethoxazole was significantly increased by 42.96% compared to the control sample. The LC-MS based isotopic abundance ratio of PM+1/ PM in the treated sulfamethoxazole was significantly decreased by 49.56% compared with the control sample. Thus, 13C, 2 H, 15N, 17O, and 33S contributions from (C10H10N3 O3 S)- to m/z 253 in the treated sample were significantly decreased compared with the control sample. The GC-MS peak area% of the treated sample was significantly increased by 80.3% compared to the control sample. The GC-MS based isotopic abundance ratio of PM+1/PM and PM+2/PM in the treated sulfamethoxazole was significantly altered by 119.53% and -25.48%, respectively compared with the control sample. Hence, 13C, 2 H, 15N, 17O, 18O, 33S, and 34S contributions from (C10H11N3 O3 S)+ to m/z 254 and 255 in the treated sample were significantly altered compared with the control sample. The isotopic abundance ratios of PM+1/PM (2 H/1 H or 13C/12C or 15N/14N or 17O/16O or 33S/32S) and PM+2/ PM (18O/16O or 34S/32S) in the treated sulfamethoxazole were significantly altered compared to the control sample. It can be assumed that the changes in peak area%, isotopic abundance, and mass peak intensities could be due to changes in nuclei possibly through the interference of neutrino particles via the Trivedi Effect®. The new form of sulfamethoxazole would be more efficacious pharmaceutical formulations that might offer better solubility, dissolution, absorption, bioavailability and therapeutic response against urinary tract infections, tuberculosis, traveler’s diarrhoea, ear infections, shigellosis, bronchitis, and pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia, etc.

Cholecalciferol is a steroid hormone (7-dehydroxycholesterol), which helps in the absorption of dietary minerals like zinc, calcium, magnesium, iron, and phosphate and also responsible for other biological activity. In this research study, the influence of the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment on the physicochemical and thermal properties of cholecalciferol was evaluated using the modern analytical technique. The cholecalciferol test sample was divided into two parts. One of the test samples was considered as a control sample, which did not receive the Biofield Energy Treatment; whereas, the other part was treated with the Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment remotely by a well-known Biofield Energy Healer, Gopal Nayak and termed as a treated sample. The particle size values in the treated cholecalciferol powder sample were significantly decreased by 78.94% (d10), 26.21% (d50), 22.01% (d90), and 29.04% {D (4,3)}; thus, the specific surface area of the treated cholecalciferol was significantly increased by 174.12% compared to the control sample. The XRD peak intensities and crystallite sizes of the treated cholecalciferol powder sample were significantly altered ranging from -44.37% to 370.49% and -74.48% to 91.52%, respectively; therefore, the average crystallite size of the treated cholecalciferol was significantly decreased by 36.21% compared to the control cholecalciferol. The latent heat of fusion of the treated cholecalciferol was significantly increased by 25.89% compared to the control cholecalciferol. The weight loss was decreased by 1.48%; whereas, the residue amount was significantly increased by 107.02% in the treated sample compared with the control sample. Thus, the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment generated a new polymorphic form of cholecalciferol which might offer better solubility, absorption, bioavailability, and be thermally more stable compared with the control sample. Henceforth, the Consciousness Energy Healing Treated cholecalciferol would be more beneficial to maintain the overall quality of life and it would be more useful in designing novel nutraceutical/pharmaceutical formulations for the better therapeutic responses against deficiency of vitamin D, osteoporosis, rickets, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, cancer, mental disorders, multiple sclerosis, etc.

Ofloxacin is an antibiotic, useful against the number of bacterial infections. This scientific investigation was performed to identify the impact of the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment on the structural properties and the isotopic abundance ratio of ofloxacin using sophisticated analytical techniques. Ofloxacin sample was divided into control and treated parts. Only the treated ofloxacin received the Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment remotely by a well-known Biofield Energy Healer, Mr. Mahendra Kumar Trivedi. The LC-MS spectra of both the samples of ofloxacin at retention time 3 minutes exhibited the mass of the protonated molecular ion peak at m/z 362.17 (M+H)+. The chromatographic peak area% of the treated ofloxacin (52.4%) was increased by 2.03% compared to the control sample (51.36%). The LC-MS based isotopic abundance ratio of PM+1/PM in the Biofield Treated ofloxacin was significantly increased by 22.43% compared with the control sample. Similarly, the GC-MS based isotopic abundance ratio of PM+1/PM in the Biofield Treated ofloxacin was significantly increased by 19.24% compared with the control sample. The LC-MS and GC-MS based isotopic abundance ratio of PM+1/PM (2H/1H or 15N/14N or 13C/12C or 17O/16O) was significantly increased in the Biofield Treated ofloxacin as compared to the control sample. Thus,2H, 15N, 13C, and17O contributions from (C18H21FN3O4)+ to m/z 363.17 in the treated ofloxacin were significantly increased compared with the control sample. The increased isotopic abundance ratio of the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treated ofloxacin may increase the intra-atomic bond strength and increase its physical stability. The new form of treated ofloxacin would be more stable, better soluble, and bioavailable compared to the control sample. It would be more useful to design efficacious pharmaceutical formulations that might offer better therapeutic response against infections in the urethra, urinary tract, gonorrhoea, pneumonia, infectious diarrhoea, bronchitis, cellulitis, bacterial infection of the eye and ear, multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, prostatitis, otitis media, plague, etc.

Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) is an FDA approved popular biodegradable copolymer, which has several applications in the pharmaceuticals and biomedical industries. But the degradation and stability of PLGA is a major problem. The objective of this research work was to evaluate the effect of the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment on the physicochemical and thermal properties of PLGA using modern analytical techniques. The test sample was divided into control and treated parts. The control part of the test sample did not receive the Biofield Energy Treatment; whereas the other part of the sample received the Biofield Energy Treatment remotely by a famous Biofield Energy Healer, Gopal Nayak and was known as a treated sample. The particle size values were significantly increased by 15.76% (d10), 15.73% (d50), 12.04% (d90), and 13.81% {D(4,3)}; hence, the specific surface area was significantly decreased by 12.45% in the treated sample compared to the control sample. The latent heat of evaporation and latent heat of fusion were altered by 1.05% and -55.13%, respectively in the treated PLGA compared with the control sample. The total weight loss was significantly increased by 10.34%; however, the residue amount was 95.77% less in the treated PLGA sample compared to the control sample. From these results, it can be concluded that the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treated PLGA may show better flowability, shape, and appearance compared with the control PLGA. The Biofield Energy Treated PLGA can provide better benefits for designing the pharmaceutical/nutraceutical formulations and manufacturing of biomedical devices, i.e., sutures, grafts, surgical sealant films, prosthetic devices, implants, micro, and nanoparticles.

The lead powder sample was divided into control and treated parts. The control sample did not expose to the Biofield Energy Treatment; however, the treated part of the lead sample received the Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment remotely by a renowned Biofield Energy Healer, Dahryn Trivedi. The particle size values of the Dahryn’s Biofield Energy Treated lead powder sample were significantly increased by 3.05%(d10), 9.5%(d50), 13.34%(d90), and 11.11%{D(4,3)}; thus, the specific surface area was significantly decreased by 6.25% compared with the control sample. The PXRD peak intensities and crystallite sizes of the treated lead powder sample were significantly altered ranging from -16.09% to 104.65% and -36.56% to 15.79%, respectively; whereas the average crystallite size was increased by 4.62% compared with the control sample. The latent heat of fusion was significantly increased by 6.92% in the treated lead powder sample compared with the control sample. The Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment might be responsible for the generation of a new polymorphic form of lead which may show better powder flowability and thermally more stable compared with the untreated sample. Therefore, the Biofield Energy Treated lead powder would be very helpful to reduce the lead poisoning of the people long-term exposer with the industries manufacturing pipe, paint, food, mining, plastic, glass, chemical, and alloys. Moreover, the improved thermal stability of the treated lead powder would be useful for the metal industry.

Zinc chloride has the importance in pharmaceutical/nutraceutical industries for the prevention and treatment of several diseases. The objective of the current study was to investigate the impact of The Trivedi Effect®-Energy of Consciousness Healing Treatment (Biofield Energy Healing Treatment) on physical, structural, and thermal properties of zinc chloride using PXRD, PSD, FT-IR, UV-vis, TGA, and DSC analysis. Zinc chloride was divided into two parts. One part was denoted as the control without any, while the other part was defined as the Trivedi Effect® Treated sample, which received the Trivedi Effect® Treatment remotely from eighteen renowned Biofield Energy Healers. The PXRD analysis revealed that the crystallite size and relative intensities of the PXRD peaks significantly altered in the treated sample compared with the control sample. The crystallite size of treated sample was decreased by 4.19% compared with the control sample. The particle size at d10 and d50 of the Biofield Energy Treated sample decreased by 4.72% and 2.70%, respectively compared with the control sample. But, the particle size of the treated sample increased at d90 by 0.83 compared with the control sample. Consequently, the surface area was increased by 3.22% in the treated sample compared with the control sample. The FT-IR spectroscopic analysis revealed that Zn-Cl stretching in the control and treated sample was at 520 cm-1 and 521 cm-1, respectively. The UV-vis analysis exhibited that the wavelength of the maximum absorbance of the control and treated samples was at 196.4 and 196.2 nm, respectively. The TGA thermograms revealed two steps of the thermal degradation and the weight loss of the treated sample was significantly reduced by 22.54% in the 1st step of degradation compared with the control sample. The DSC analysis showed that the enthalpy of decomposition was significantly increased by 34.9% in the treated sample (89.17 J/g) compared with the control sample (66.10 J/g). Overall, DSC and TGA analysis indicated that the thermal stability of the treated sample was increased compared with the control sample. The current study anticipated that The Trivedi Effect®-Energy of Consciousness Healing Treatment might lead to generate a new polymorphic form of zinc chloride, which would be more soluble, stable, and higher absorption rate compared with the control sample. Hence, the treated zinc chloride could be very useful to design the various forms of nutraceuticals and pharmaceutical formulation which might be providing a better therapeutic response against inflammatory diseases, immunological disorders, aging, stress, cancer, etc.

There has been significant data published in peer-reviewed scientific journals about Mr. Mahendra Kumar Trivedi exercising the biofield energy to change the behaviour and characteristics of living organisms including soil, seeds, plants, trees, animals, microbes, and humans, along with non-living materials including metals, ceramics, polymers, chemicals, pharmaceutical compounds and nutraceuticals, etc. This effect of Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy on living beings and non-living materials is referred to as The Trivedi Effect®. The changes are attributed to changes at the atomic level and the subatomic level. Changes in atomic/molecular weights are postulated to the changes in atomic mass and atomic charge through possible mediation of neutrinos. The recent discovery of neutrino oscillations seems to give credence to our postulates. This paper discusses briefly about the neutrinos and some of Mr. Trivedi’s results and attempts to link these to biofield energy and associated signal transmissions.

The stable isotope ratio analysis is widely used in several scientific fields such as agricultural, food authenticity, biochemistry, metabolism, medical research, etc. Resorcinol is one of the most versatile chemicals used for the synthesis of several pharmaceuticals, dyes, polymers, organic compounds, etc. The current research work was designed to investigate the impact of the biofield energy treatment on the isotopic abundance ratios of 13C/12C or 2H/1H or 17O/16O (PM+1/PM) and 18O/16O (PM+2/PM) in resorcinol using Gas chromatograph - mass spectrometry (GC-MS) technique. Resorcinol was divided into two parts - one part was control and another part was considered as biofield energy treated sample. The biofield energy treatment was accomplished through unique biofield energy transmission by Mr. Mahendra Kumar Trivedi (also called as The Trivedi Effect®). T1, T2, T3, and T4 were denoted by different time interval analysis of the biofield treated resorcinol in order to understand the influence of the biofield energy treatment on isotopic abundance ratio with respect to the time. The GC-MS spectra of the both control and biofield treated resorcinol exhibited the presence of molecular ion peak [M+] at m/z 110 (calculated 110.04 for C6H6O2) along with major fragmented peaks at m/z 82, 81, 69, 53, and 39. The relative peak intensities of the fragmented ions in biofield treated resorcinol (particularly T2) was significantly changed with respect to the control sample. The stable isotope ratio analysis in resorcinol using GC-MS revealed that the percentage change of the isotopic abundance ratio of PM+1/PM was increased in the biofield treated resorcinol at T1, T2, T3 and T4 by 1.77%, 165.73%, 0.74%, and 6.79%, respectively with respect to the control sample. Consequently, the isotopic abundance ratio of PM+2/PM in the biofield treated resorcinol at T2, T3, and T4 were enhanced by 170.77%, 3.08%, and 12.31%, respectively with respect to the control sample. Briefly, 13C, 2H, 17O contributions from (C6H6O2)+ to m/z 111 and 18O contribution from (C6H6O2)+ to m/z 112 for the biofield treated resorcinol at T2 and T4 were significantly altered as compared to the control sample. For this reasons, biofield treated resorcinol might exhibit altered physicochemical properties like diffusion velocity, mobility and evaporation rate, reaction rate, binding energy, and stability. Biofield treated resorcinol could be valuable in pharmaceutical and chemical industries as intermediates during the preparation of pharmaceuticals and chemical compounds by altering its physicochemical properties, the reaction rate and selectivity, the study of the reaction mechanism and facilitating in designing extremely effective and specific enzyme inhibitors.

The objective of the current experiment was to evaluate the effect of biofield energy treatment on the isotopic abundance ratio of PM+1/PM (2H/1H or 13C/12C or 15N/14N) in indole using the gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The sample of organic compound indole was divided into two parts – one part was designated as a control sample (untreated), and another part was considered as biofield energy treated sample, which was subjected to Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment (The Trivedi Effect®). The biofield energy treated indole sample was analyzed at different time intervals and were symbolized as T1, T2, T3, and T4 to understand the effect of the biofield energy on isotopic abundance ratio with respect to the time. From the GC-MS spectra, the presence of the molecular ion peak C8H7N+ (m/z 117) along with major fragmented peaks C7H6+ (m/z 90), C7H5+ (m/z 89), C5H3+ (m/z 63), C4H2+ (m/z 50), C3H3+ (m/z 39), and C2H4 (m/z 28) were observed in both control and biofield treated samples. Only, the relative peak intensities of the fragmented ions in the biofield treated indole was notably changed as compared to the control sample with respect to the time. The isotopic abundance ratio analysis of indole using GC-MS revealed that the isotopic abundance ratio of PM+1/PM in the biofield energy treated indole at T1 and T2 was significantly decreased by 44.28 and 28.18% as compared to the control sample. On the contrary, the isotopic abundance ratio of PM+1/PM in the biofield energy treated sample at T3 and T4, was significantly increased by 41.22 and 180.88%, respectively as compared to the control sample. Overall, the isotopic abundance ratio of PM+1/PM (2H/1H or13C/12C or 15N/14N) was significantly altered in the biofield energy treated indole as compared to the control with respect to the time. The biofield treated indole with the altered isotopic abundance ratio might have altered the physicochemical properties and rate of reaction. This biofield energy treated indole might be more useful as a chemical intermediate in the production of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, plastics, dyes, and perfumes.

Cellulose and its derivatives are used as potential matrices for biomaterials and tissue engineering applications. The objective of present research was to investigate the influence of biofield treatment on physical, chemical and thermal properties of ethyl cellulose (EC) and methyl cellulose (MC). The study was performed in two groups (control and treated). The control group remained as untreated, and biofield treatment was given to treated group. The biofield treated polymers are characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), CHNSO analysis, X-ray diffraction study (XRD), Differential Scanning calorimetry (DSC), and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). FT-IR analysis of treated EC showed downward shifting in C-O-C stretching peak from 1091→1066 cm-1 with respect to control. However, the treated MC showed upward shifting of –OH stretching (3413→3475) and downward shifting in C-O stretching (1647→1635 cm-1) vibrations with respect to control MC. CHNSO analysis showed substantial increase in percent hydrogen and oxygen in treated polymers with respect to control. XRD diffractogram of EC and MC affirmed the typical semi-crystalline nature. The crystallite size was substantially increased by 20.54% in treated EC with respect to control. However, the treated MC showed decrease in crystallite by 61.59% with respect to control. DSC analysis of treated EC showed minimal changes in crystallization temperature with respect to control sample. However, the treated and control MC did not show any crystallization temperature in the samples. TGA analysis of treated EC showed increase in thermal stability with respect to control. However, the TGA thermogram of treated MC showed reduction in thermal stability as compared to control. Overall, the result showed substantial alteration in physical, chemical and thermal properties of treated EC and MC.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is the key organism for food poisoning due to massive production of heat stable exotoxins. The current study was attempted to investigate the effect of Mr. Trivedi’s biofield treatment on S. aureus. S. aureus (ATCC 25923) was divided into two parts, Group (Gr.) I: control and Gr. II: treatment. After biofield treatment, Gr. II was further subdivided into two parts, Gr. IIA and Gr. IIB. Gr. IIA was analyzed on day 10, while Gr. IIB was stored and analyzed on day 159 after revival (Study I). The revived sample (Gr. IIB) were retreated on day 159 (Study II), and divided into three separate tubes. Tube 1 was analyzed on day 5, likewise, tube 2 and 3 were analyzed on day 10 and 15, respectively. All the experimental parameters were studied using automated MicroScan Walk-Away® system. The 16S rDNA sequencing was carried out in Gr. IIA sample to correlate the phylogenetic relationship of S. aureus with other bacterial species. The antimicrobial susceptibility and minimum inhibitory concentration showed significant alteration i.e. 92.86% and 90.00% respectively in treated cells of S. aureus as compared to control. The biochemical reactions also showed the significant (35.71%) alteration in treated sample with respect to control. The biotype number and microbial species were substantially changed in Gr. IIA (767177; Staphylococcus cohnii subsp. urealyticum) on day 10, while only the biotype numbers were changed in rest of the treated samples as compared to control (307016; S. aureus). The 16S rDNA analysis showed that the identified strain in this experiment was S. aureus (GenBank Accession No.: L37597) after biofield treatment. However, the nearest homolog genus-species was found as Staphylococcus simiae (GenBank Accession No.: DQ127902). These results suggested that biofield treatment has a significant impact on S. aureus in lyophilized as well as revived state.

Sample A was revived and divided into two parts Group (Gr.I) (control) and Gr.II (revived); likewise, sample B was labeled as Gr.III (lyophilized). Gr. II and III were given with Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment. The control and treated groups of S. saprophyticus cells were tested with respect to antimicrobial susceptibility, biochemical reactions pattern and biotype number using MicroScan Walk-Away® system. The 50% out of twenty-eight tested antimicrobials showed significant alteration in susceptibility and 36.67% out of thirty antimicrobials showed an alteration in minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) value of S. saprophyticus in revived treated cells (Gr. II, day 10), while no alteration was found in lyophilized treated cells (Gr. III, day 10) as compared to the control. It was also observed that overall 14.81%, out of twenty-seven biochemical reactions were altered in the revived treated group with respect to the control. Moreover, biotype number was changed in Gr. II, on day 5 (246076) and in Gr. III, on day 10 (242066), while organism along-with biotype number was also changed in Gr. II, on day 10 (342066, Staphylococcus hominis subsp. novobiosepticus) as compared to the control (242076, S. saprophyticus). The result suggested that biofield treatment has the significant impact on S. saprophyticus in revived treated cells with respect to the antimicrobial susceptibility, MIC, biochemical reactions pattern and biotype.

The current study was attempted to investigate the effect of Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy treated energized water on chicken. The total 4200 chicks were equally divided into two groups i.e. control and treated. The biofield treated energized water was provided to the treated chicks, while the control chicks were drunk with standard drinking water. During the experiment the parameters such as mortality, body weight, food intake etc. were assessed in both control and energized water treated birds. The mortality rate was reduced in the energized water treated chicks as 54.55% in week 1, 42.11% in week 6, and 39.13% in week 4, as compared to the control chicks. Moreover, the average body weight was increased by 12.50% in week 1 as compared to the control chicks. The feed conversion ratio was gradually decreased which indicated that the energized water treated chicks took less feeds while the body weight was increased in comparison to the control chicks. Besides, the energized water treated birds showed statistically significant (p<0.007) with 15.47% increase in the edible meat weight as compared to the control chicks. Moreover, the feather, skin and internal organ weight were significantly reduced by 21.22% (p<0.001) of energized water treated chicks as compared to the untreated chicks. The protein content was increased by 10.11% and cholesterol was decreased by 4.64% in birds of the treated group as compared to the control. The European efficiency factor was also increased by 10.67% in the energized water treated birds as compared to the control chicks.. The European efficiency factor was also increased by 10.67% in the energized water treated birds as compared to the control chicks. Altogether, the results suggest that Mr. Trivedi’s biofield treated energized water could be a cost effective feeding approach in chicken production.
