Introduction

Sprouts represent the commonest form of reproduction in the vegetal realm. By and large. Plants – due to their apparent lack of an intelligent nervous system and of sense organs – are considered simple – often described as inferior – life forms. Yet, witnessing the complete mitotic process of, say, a wheat-germ cell under a magnification not inferior to 18,000X, one can discern the unfolding of the same immemorial bio-mechanisms that swing into action since the first cell became alive when our planet cooled down sufficiently to sustain life based on carbon metabolism.

And, similarly to any warm-blooded creature, also the germinative cell of even the simplest Plant contains the entire ontogenetically Program of the complete organism. Thus, when the double helix of a deoxyribonucleic molecule of a vegetal cell begins to uncoil in its nucleus, the concatenated Phases triggered by such Program require that certain substances – some rather elemental, others quite complex – be available for the development of the vegetal organism. The initial stage of the plant development is the sprout. It can be compared to the embryonic phase of warm-blooded life forms. During this stage the budding life form is Particularly susceptible to environmental influences.

The Authors propose to show how the chemical and biochemical composition of wheat sprout, can be Purposefully influenced by the manipulation of variable environmental factors such as humidity, temperature, lighting intensity and rhythm, acoustic pressure and nourishment.

The origins of evolution of any species on this planet – be they animal, or human – derives from the combined results of adaptation to factors that vary according to the incessantly changing environment and of actions triggered by powerful biochemical commands released by an astoundingly complex, Ilic-specific ontogenetically heritage are to this date, rather poorly understood and dissipate in the haze and maze of primeval history.

Furthermore, the deeper we become immersed in gazing at the parts, the tighter we get bonded to them, to the growing detriment of the whole. For instance, when confronted with the hypothetical question of what happens if one optimizes the Primary environmental constituents – such as CO2, light and humidity – which allow the photosynthesis, of a given plant, the general consensus will probably agree with the assumption that “Plants subjected to such optimized environment will proliferate more exuberantly and grow probably larger.”

Nonetheless, in the Authors experience – accumulated over several decades of testing – uniform optimization of all environmental factors, will necessarily trigger and a cascade. The only Parameter that would improve is the photosynthesis itself. The Plant would regress – reduce in size while becoming greener all the time. The end result would be an extraordinarily green dwarf that looks healthier than it really is.

On the other hand, a plant subjected to, distress – particularly during its germinating Period – will grow for more exuberantly than its counterpart placed into an ideal environment. A rubber Plant living in New York city, for example, will grow much larger, in order to capture the maximum amount of light under the cement overgrowth than in its natural habitat, say, in the Amazonian Jungle.

Alas, the Authors postulate that quite the opposite is true, when the environmental parameters are successfully programmed to enhance the adoptive potential of the plants. Under the beneficial influence of such stimuli, it is the plant cell that will develop a perfect internal structure that is ideally suited to that particular environment.

In the Present work, the Authors wish to sidestep the controversy created by issues such as spontaneous creation versus purposeful development versus divine creation, since these are irrelevant to the task addressed by this essay. Thus, it should suffice to establish that, regardless of its Primeval origins, the ontogenetically Program is indeed not only the major factor which determines every cells behavior, but is also the source of the recourses that allow the cell to adapt to the continuous changes of the environment. Which brings us to our next touchy subject.

Since the last century, when biology became a budding science in its own right, to this date the great majority of its exponents pontificate that required characteristics can not be transmitted genetically, Many highly promising intellectuals have been ruthlessly degraded and driven from the ranks by the merciless scientific establishment, whose power focuses only on their own well understood and clearly defined interests. Their self-appointed righteousness, determined to inflict devastating blows on any opposition, makes no allowance for errors in their own Postulates, leaving the Authors no other alternative, than to challenge such Postulation and expose the feebleness of the Premises on which it is based.

Discussion

It is quite true that characteristics imposed by newly developed environmental circumstances – which have been effectively acquired by any given generation – can not be genetically transmitted to their descendants. The Authors stipulate that it is highly improbable that such a transference should occur from one generation to the other. However, it is easy to prove that, if a given mutagenic factor – able to induce a cell to acquire a given functional expression – persists over at least four, or more generations, that particular feature will eventually appear in its descendant, from the fifth generation on. HOW else could it be explained otherwise that unbroken vintage lines of no diabetics, or of cancer-free individuals, with ascendancies objectively traceable for several generations, for example, suddenly produce diabetics, or cancer patients, whose descendants unexpectedly do inherit the Proneness to such Pathologies?

Another instance that illustrates our Postulate, is the extraordinary vitality of cancer cells. Their most astonishing feature consists precisely in their ability to acquire characteristics that enable them to cope with hostile or life-threatening influences and, if exposed to these persistently over several generations transmit such ability genetically to their descendants. In fact, this trait – contradicting radically the most sacred thesis accepted by the Establishment – is one of the two factors that render cancer therapy so difficult, to say the least.

The second factor – which constitutes another new genetically transferable expression evolved by the cancer cell in but a few cellular generations – consists in the fact that cancer growth, that is, malignant cell conglomerates’ totally detach themselves from the neuro-vegetative system of the host. Which implies that the physician has no regular pharma-chemical access to a tumor, lest he resorts to massive destructive methods, such as surgery, or generally highly poisonous chemo-therapy, or hard radiation. The cancer cells require but very few cell generation, until they become enable to transmit such acquired traits to their descendants.

Thus, pan-generational persistence of character acquiring influences can and will indeed produce important new traits in any genetic lineage. Obviously, the higher the reproductive cycling frequency of a given cell is, the faster the acquired characteristic will make appearance in their descendent. The Phase during which any given life form is most susceptible to genetically significant influences, is their germinative and , to a somewhat lesser extent, gestational stage. In most Plants this phase is known as the sprout, which represents the germinative and embryonic laps of Plant development. The sensitivity of sprouts to energetic influences – such as light variations, acoustic pressure, temperature and humidity – is far greater than in any other life form, because this is the mechanism that allow, the plant to either adapt to the environment or to go Into a recess when the adverse conditions are too overwhelming.

Expressed differently, sprouts will necessarily attempt to compose a chemical and biochemical milieu, which is, to the extent of pre-existing sources, most ideally suited to live in that particular environment. This implies that, when the diverse energy factors vary -, Providing the circumstances do not constitute life-threatening opprobrium – the sprout will respond to these variation, by germinations lite-preserving combinations of enzymes, co-enzymes, enzymogen, amino-acids, vitamins and minerals. The sprout, then, thanks to its quintessence, is a veritable cornucopia of life.

METHODOLOGY

The sprouting is carried out in special enclosures endowed with the following programmable environmental parameters:

TEMPERATURE

Sprouting is carried out between temperature, of 37° and 38.6° centigrade. Each decimal degree of variation affects the mineral and catalase content of the sprout. Sudden cooling of the day old sprout to +3.5° centigrade – that is, maintaining the sprout during 24 hours at a temperature which is the borderline of the freezing mechanism, activates the resistance and immune response of the plant, endowing its cells with a rich combination of immune enhancing components.

HUMIDITY

The variation of humidity during sprouting associated to suitable temperatures yields diverse peroxidase enhancing factors.

LIGHTING

The biochemical environment of the germinating plant cell can be remarkably influenced by varying the following luminic parameters; a) intensity output measured in watts; b) luminescence expressed in Kelvin; c) cycles, established through programmed light/darkness rhythms. All these characteristics can be integrated into the same pro-tram with sub cycling variations. Each program modification will combine with the restart factors, yielding extremely valuable and highly predictable variances.

ACOUSTIC PRESSURE

Germinating Plant-cells are extremely sensitive to acoustic pressure. They will respond extraordinarily to all variations of the following parameters; a) loudness, physical pressure measured in decibels; b) melody, sonic vibrations, expressed in both discrete and recurrent frequency phrases; c) rhythm, manifest in discernible, recurrent pattern. These three features of acoustic pressure constitute a paramount coalition of influences which determine the synthesis of superoxide dismutase end the assimilation of the trace element molybdenum in the sprout cell.

The sprouting is carried out through standardized hydroponic techniques. During repeated experiments the Authors have determined that for optimal results, a non-varying compost is the nutrition of election used during the sprouting.

The dehydrated sprouts accomplished immediately following the harvest, through specially filtered circular non-recycled – that is, both oxygen and nitrogen rich – airflow of 1 7X relative humidity at 42Q centigrade, circulating through the sprout mats under a secondary vacuum created by extractor fans equipped with humidity traps.

The dehydrated sprouts are ground and compressed into tablets. Concentrated juices extracted from the same fresh sprout types, serve for the enteric coating of the tablets. The Authors have established that the bottled and safety-sealed tablets have a shelf life of not less than 3 years.

Wide spectrum toxicity test carried out by FDA recognized laboratories, see appendix, certify the above described wheat sprout tablets as safe and harmless in all conceivable parameters, without any contradictions. Due to the circumstance that the germination plant cells are still undifferentiated, the sprouts are anallergenic, that is, they can not trigger any anaphylactic reaction through any conceivable mechanism in the user.

EXPERIENCE

Considering that the desiccated wheat sprout tablets are to be distributed as an OTC product, the following norms have been established to determine their primary use for temporary relief:

1 Conditions, which can be provisionally interpreted by the user, such as:

a) Soreness articulations which do not require medical assistance. The same criteria applies as the use of aspirins or other OTC pain relievers: it the symptom, are not shortly palliated the user is advised to consult a licensed physician.

b) Minor, or secondary inflammatory processes which do not require the use of steroids, or prescription drugs. The same criteria applies as above.

2 Conditions that can be prevented by such supplementation:

c) energy-loss due to overexertion, such as exhaustive exercise, or studying.

d) anenergic reactions due to jet-lag during transoceanic flights, or due to persistent stress factors.

3 Conditions in which the ingestion of fibers and enzyme enhancing complement is recommendable.

As already explained, due to the undifferentiated nature of the sprout cells, the sprout cell tablets are completely anallergic and have no known contraindications.

The standard form to use, consists in 6 tablets, daily, taken together, 1 hour or more, before breakfast. In the experience of the Authors, the tablets should be taken at least for 2 months.

The models of both the original research – based on J. ’s primary discoveries – and of the subsequent, continued development, were designed by the Authors and are being carried out in Hawaii, Montana, and Mexico, since 1970.

2 Pre-clinical and 3 clinical double-blind studies have been carried out offshore to this date with the purpose of field testing the OTO applications described in above paragraphs 1,2, and 3. (see Tables #1 to *5 in the Appendix). An in-depth field test is being carried out at present at an American university level institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. This test, carried out with 96 users, was designed to encompass the same aforementioned parameters and should be concluded by late fall 1990.

SUMMARY

Wheat sprouts exposed to specifically programmed variable environmental factors – such as temperature, humidity, lighting, and acoustic pressure factor, will develop predictable cellular milicus, whose non-toxic ultimate compositions, when ingested as a food supplement, renders them highly suitable for the temporary relief of 1. Soreness, of articulations which do not require prescription drugs; & secondary inflammatory processes that do not require medical assistance; 2. Digestive conditions that call for persistent ingestion of fiber in volumes superior than those contained in the regular nutritional regime. The herein described wheat sprout tablets are totally non-toxic produce neither side-effects, thus correspond to the labeling and OTC definition of the Food and Drug Administration.

As a result of the recommendations of this symposium, new cogent regulation has been passed by Congress regarding medical diets that will profoundly affect the health of Americans by changing the emphasis on the medical community from treating disease to promoting health.

METHODS

253 patients, 143 male and 110 female, age 26 to 79, were reported from the 16 contributing physicians. In all cases the inflammation in the joints was noninfectious and either the result of traumatic injury or spontaneous due to overexposure to stress conditions. The main characteristic was inflammation of the synovial membrane, clinical signs of loss of mobility and movement, pain, and in some cases, increased fluid in the joint (edema/swelling).

The diagnosis was made by the physician using standard movement capability assessments as well as patient reports on pain levels and overall general feeling. Most of the patients had been on vitamin/mineral regimes with their condition remaining unchanged before administration of the whole food antioxidant enzymes. No other enzyme product was utilized. In all cases, a minimum of 6 tablets were given once daily, first thing in the morning upon rising, 1 hour before eating.

FINDINGS

Of the 253 cases reported in this study, 228 patients demonstrated increased mobility, with decreased pain and swelling in affected areas. Although 47 of the 228 patients did not show signs of improvement until the fourth week, the average response time of the entire group was 14 days. All 228 cases which demonstrated improvement also reported increased levels of mobility as treatment time extended past initial response point. In most cases, varying dosage regimes of 6 to 12 tablets per day were necessary to achieve a measurable response. After initial response, maintenance dosages of ½ the initial amount were sufficient to sustain the desired result.

Along with obvious benefits to inflammatory conditions, 200 of the 228 patients reported to their doctor one or more of the following changes: increased energy, better circulation, easier elimination, improved mental capacity, enhanced sexual potency, decreased nervous tension and an overall feeling of well-being. Although of no statistical relevance, there were several reports of lessening of wrinkles, loss of pigmentation of brown age-spots, and re-coloration of graying hair.

CONCLUSION

Physicians/patients supplementing SOD/CAT or AOX/PLX reported noticeable improvements in range of motion, mobility, swelling and pain within 2 to 4 weeks of 228 of the 253 (90%) patients. Based upon scientific evidence correlating free radical pathology with inflammatory conditions, it is therefore theorized that the antioxidant qualities of the whole food antioxidant enzymes is the probable mode of action.

SOD/CAT – whole food antioxidant enzyme complex emphasizing superoxide dismutase and catalase, AOX/PLX – whole food antioxidant enzyme complex emphasizing superoxide dismutase, catalase glutathione peroxidase, methionine reductase. Both products derived entirely from specially developed organically grown wheat sprouts. Dried at room temperatures and tableted with no fillers or binders.
