Immunopotentiating Impact of The Trivedi Effect®-Biofield Energy Healing on Herbomineral Formulation After Oral Administration in Male Sprague Dawley Rats
A new proprietary herbomineral formulation was formulated, consisting of essential ingredients viz. herbal root extract ashwagandha and minerals (zinc, magnesium, and selenium). The aim of the study was to evaluate the immunomodulatory potential of Biofield Energy Healing (The Trivedi Effect®) Treatment on the herbomineral formulation in male Sprague Dawley rats. The test formulation was divided into two parts. One part was denoted as the control without any Biofield Energy Treatment, while the other part was defined as the Biofield Energy Treated sample, which received the Biofield Energy Healing Treatment remotely from twenty renowned Biofield Energy Healers. The experimental parameters studies were humoral immune response (primary and secondary titre), delayed type hypersensitivity reaction, animal weight parameters, feed and water intake, histopathology, hematological and serum biochemistry. Humoral immune response showed the primary and secondary antibody titre values were significantly (p≤0.05) increased by 5.33% and 112.5%, respectively in the Biofield Energy Treated test formulation (G4) group with respect to the disease control group (G2). Delayed type hypersensitivity results showed significant increase in paw edema by 88.24% (p≤0.05) and 25% at 24 and 48 hours of duration, respectively in the Biofield Energy Treated test formulation (G4) group compared with the G2 group. Hematological studies showed a significant increase in the RBC count, hemoglobin, and packed cell volume (PCV), while the platelet count was increased by 8.40% in the Biofield Energy Treated test formulation group (G4) compared with the disease control group (G2). Biochemical analysis exhibited an increased level of calcium and phosphorus by 2.34% and 7.38%, respectively while serum uric acid was significantly decreased by 18.34% along with a slight increase in the magnesium, potassium, and sodium ions in the Biofield Energy Treated test formulation (G4) compared with the G2 group. In conclusion, the Biofield Energy Treated Test Formulation would be the powerful immunomodulatory product, which was found to be safe at the tested doses. Therefore, The Trivedi Effect®-Biofield Energy Healing based herbomineral formulation can be applied to potentiate the immune system that helps to fight against many infectious diseases. Overall, experimental data suggested that the Biofield Energy Treated test formulation can be used for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, stress management and prevention, and anti-aging by improving overall health.
