Today, about 1 out of 12 people are suffering from asthma and this number is growing each day. What causes asthma is not exactly known, but there are certain risk factors that increase the chances …”

— Dr. Kenneth P Rebong, pediatrician

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In brief, asthma is a chronic disease affecting the airways that carry air in and out of the lungs. With asthma, the inside walls of the airways are sore and swollen. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 6.2 million children under the age of 18 have this condition (8.4%). Because children have smaller airways, they are particularly affected by it. Affected children have symptoms such as trouble breathing, wheezing, and coughing. There are many causes, including infections (such as a cold), allergens (such as mold or pollen), and air pollution.

Medical doctor Kenneth P. Rebong, MD has published an informational article with a few simple steps to better control your child’s asthma. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Rebong at https://drkennethrebong.wordpress.com/

Asthma Causes

Asthma refers to the inflammation and irritation in the lungs. People suffering from asthma face difficulty in breathing and often need an inhaler to soothe the inflamed airways. This disease cannot be cured but its effects can be controlled by strictly following rules. Here are the most common asthma causes:

* Allergens such as pollen, dust particles, pet hair, and feathers
* Flu
* Air pollution
* Sudden weather changes
* Certain medicines such as aspirin and ibuprofen
* Mold spores
* Heavy exercise

What Causes Asthma

Asthma is growing with the rapid increase in air pollution. Today, about 1 out of 12 people are suffering from asthma and this number is growing each day. What causes asthma is not exactly known, but there are certain risk factors that increase the chances of a person developing this disease. The risk factors include:

* Genetics – Some people suffer from asthma because they inherited it from one of their parents. There’s nothing they can do about it except keeping themselves away from things that trigger their asthma.
* Allergy – Children with allergies tend to develop asthma. Eczema, food allergies, and hay fever are the common culprits behind the development of asthma.
* Bronchiolitis – It is a lung disease which creates difficulty in breathing. Children develop it at an early age if they are exposed to the Bronchiolitis virus.
* Smoking – If a pregnant woman smokes cigarettes, it is more likely that her unborn child develops asthma.
* Pre-mature babies – Children who are born before 37 weeks are at a high risk of developing asthma.

Asthma Symptoms

People take these symptoms lightly and ignore them, ruling out the possibility that they might be associated with asthma. Some people exhibit these symptoms while others do not. If you find your loved ones suffering from any of the following symptoms, consult a doctor immediately:

* Shortness of breath
* Tightness in chest
* Wheezing – a whistle sound while inhaling and exhaling
* Coughing that lasts for a long time
* Coughing while laughing or during exercise

Asthma patients should carry an inhaler with them at all times. They should stay away from asthma triggers as much as possible. If someone is suffering from an asthma attack and they do not have an inhaler with them, they should try to sit up straight and inhale and exhale deeply. If they are near something that’s a trigger for their asthma, they should immediately get away from it. In case coughing does not stop, they should seek medical help immediately, advises physician Kenneth Rebong.

In a new article written in layman’s terms, orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Leonard Marchinski informs about Upper Extremity Orthopedics and surgery.


The conditions that are discussed require special care from your orthopedic doctor. When it comes to surgical treatments, each case is different and can’t be treated necessarily like other cases.”

— Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski, Pennsylvania, orthopedic surgery

WYOMISSING, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hand and upper extremity is broad terminology that includes the functionality of different body parts from your hand to your shoulder, such as joints, bones, ligaments, blood vessels, tendons, soft tissues, and various nerves. These regions of your body are more often afflicted than any other parts because they are heavily exposed to external factors on a daily basis, for and during the performance of many day-to-day chores. Your hand can be adversely affected due to multiple reasons that can cause severe pain in your body. If not treated by an orthopaedic physician, your hand can ultimately stop functioning.

Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski is providing his thoughts on this subject in a new article. The complete article will be available on Dr. Marchinski’s blog at https://leonardmarchinskimd.wordpress.com/ To understand the causes and symptoms of hand and upper extremity health issues, as well as effects and treatments, keep on reading.

1. Tingling Hands
This is a common symptom that can get worse to the extent that you may end up losing sleep, resulting in insomnia. It often begins slowly and temporarily which is why you may ignore it as a harmless feeling. The reason why your hands may tingle is because of the pressure generated on your nerves due to some severe nerve injury, stress injury, toxic intake, viral or bacterial infection, and diabetes. In some cases, the tingling in hands can be extreme, episodic, or chronic. Along with tingling, your hands can be itchy and numb as well.

2. Numbness
Numbness of your hands is often accompanied by tingling and itchiness. Many consider it as a result of CTS – carpal tunnel syndrome – a compression of a median nerve in your wrist, where it passes through a tunnel. While this may be true for some cases, not every other person with numb hands may have CTS. Many other reasons can contribute to numb hands as well. For instance, numb hands can be a result of a compressed nerve due to compression neuropathy. Muscles that are part of the compressed nerve can become weak and twitchy. Another common reason for your numb hands could be an injury, compromised blood vessels, thickened tendons or connective tissues, or ganglion cysts.

Some other reasons that may cause numbness in your hand are as follows:
* Toxic metal exposure
* Brachial plexus injury
* Amyloidosis
* Raynaud’s disease
* Side effects of chemotherapy
* Lyme disease
* Peripheral neuropathy
* Stroke
* Vitamin deficiency
* Vasculitis

3. Arthritis
If you are suffering from arthritis, then it can give rise to bone spurs which may cause pressure on your hand nerves. This may further result in numbness or tickling in your hands and other parts of your body such as wrists and elbows.

4. Pressure on the Neck
You may not know it, but the nerves in your hands and forearms have roots in your neck. If the pressure is produced on the nerves of your neck, the pain can shoot all the way through your hand, wrist, and shoulder.
Several diseases, tumors, infections, and abnormalities related to the spinal cord can cause pressure on the spinal cord and may result in pain in your hand. Decreased reflexes in your arm and forearm may also be caused due to a high-level pressure in your neck nerves. At times, a nerve may be susceptible to pressure in one or multiple parts of the body. Odds are that a nerve is compressed in your neck, which may further affect your hand or arm. This condition is known as “double crush”. When one part of the body suffers from pressure, usually other parts of the body become more susceptible to pressure as well. Therefore, pressure on your neck can easily spike pressure in your hands and cause them to become numb.

The conditions that are discussed in detail above require special care and attention from your orthopedic doctor. When it comes to surgical treatments, each case is different and can’t be treated necessarily like other cases. Some of the most common hand conditions that may require you to consider orthopedic treatments are:

* Ganglion cyst
* Carpal tunnel syndrome
* Hand arthritis
* Wrist/ hand fractures
* Dupuytren’s contracture

If you are suffering from any illness mentioned here, consider the treatment of orthopedics as soon as practicable.

Orange Juice research by Don Karl Juravin

Orange Juice research by Don Karl Juravin

Don Karl Juravin

Don Karl Juravin

JURAVIN RESEARCH found "natural" or "fresh" orange juice to be very fattening, with NO HEALTH BENEFITS, and an expensive price: 250% more than other drinks.

Orange juice is 250% more expensive, it has more sugar than coke. No health benefits of vitamin C. The consumer thinks he/she is drinking healthy juice while he/she only gains weight dramatically!”

— Don Karl Juravin

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The FDA permits manufacturers in the food and drink industry to list the nutrients of natural orange juice at the time of packaging. Based on the nutrition facts label, the consumer expects to have benefited from all the claimed nutrients until it’s expired. JURAVIN RESEARCH found that while no one is lying, per se, the consumer is tricked. What fresh OJ manufacturers don’t tell you is that once you open the container, Vitamin C immediately oxidizes and vanishes.


Answer: Your body is gaining 10 tsp of sugar and 1 oz of fat.

How is the consumer being tricked when buying orange juice marked "natural" or "fresh"?

1. Vitamin C vanishes to zero (100% of the 65 mg vitamin C vanishes).
2. Orange juice's levels of sugar are similar to a soda.
3. Orange juice must be pasteurized for longer shelf-life which destroys the nutrients in the process.
4. 16 oz fresh OJ has 223 calories while Coke has 186 calories.
5. Concentrated OJ has more Vitamin C than the expensive, fresh or natural OJ.
6. A tall glass of OJ has about 10 tsp of sugar and will add 1 oz of fat to your body.


Natural orange juice costs 2 to 3 times more than orange flavored drinks. Soft drink companies can offer a natural OJ taste and even add the artificial pulp to spare consumers from the calories and help them save money. Moreover, such flavored orange drinks are healthier than the claimed to be "fresh" or "natural" (which is NOT and will be discussed in JURAVIN RESEARCH other studies).

Moreover, Don Karl Juravin reviewed and found that added ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) to a diet orange drink is more beneficial than the natural, vanishing Vitamin C. Drink manufacturers can offer these health benefits, but as long as consumers continue to pay double or triple for "fresh" juice, why should they?


We found evidence of decreasing Vitamin C levels from bottling to the moment of the consumer’s first sip; by the expiration date, the Vitamin C has completely vanished. What fresh orange juice manufacturers don’t tell you is that once you open the container, Vitamin C immediately oxidizes and vanishes. This means that Vitamin C on the label has no more value.

The clinical trial compared the REAL available Vitamin C content of reconstituted (concentrated) frozen orange juice at preparation vs. "freshly squeezed" orange juices. The lab bought orange juice from local retailers and stored at optimal refrigeration. They analyzed the juices for reduced and oxidized Vitamin C content at the time of purchase; the lab re-analyzed 3 times per week for 4 to 5 weeks
Our research found that many claim The Recommended Daily Dose of Vitamin C to be 60 mg a day while much higher volume is advised by doctors; natural orange juice labels' claims are for 100% RDA of Vitamin C in every glass.


* Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice *
Initial Vitamin C: 27 to 65 mg
By expiration date: 0 to 25 mg
Vitamin C lost: 45 to 65 mg
Vanished Vitamin C: 100%

* Frozen Orange Juice *
Initial Vitamin C: 85 mg
By expiration date: 39 to 46 mg
Vitamin C lost: 40 to 47 mg
Vanished Vitamin C: up to 55%


Assuming that every "fresh" orange juice claims to have 60 mg of Vitamin C "in the bottle," the lab found only 27 mg on the first "freshness" date. This confirmed that 33 mg had already decomposed and oxidized (vanished) during the bottling process. Moreover, by the expiration date, there was almost no viable Vitamin C remaining.


Natural and synthetic L-ascorbic acid are chemically identical There are no known differences in their biological activity. Interestingly enough, a study found that Vitamin C in a synthetic ascorbic acid form is slightly superior to the Vitamin C content in natural orange juice, based on blood levels of ascorbic acid. There is no difference based on ascorbic acid in leukocytes (white blood cells).

Therefore, the added synthetic Vitamin C to an orange flavored drink has a greater benefit than naturally occurring Vitamin C.

Dr. Gregory Jantz Discusses the Potential Link Between Hypoglycemia and Depression

Dr. Gregory Jantz

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — For decades, Dr. Gregory Jantz has studied hundreds of patient disorders to help them arrive at a healthy resolution using his unique approach to care. Through whole-person care, which considers elements like nutrition and physical health, Dr. Jantz was able to draw a connection between depression and hypoglycemia.

Dr. Gregory Jantz pioneered his “whole-person care” approach after encountering countless patients who were unable to find relief from disorders through prescription medication alone. The one-size-fits-all approach to medicine often left his patients with a new but equally uncomfortable feeling or else failed to resolve their disorder in the slightest. Dr. Gregory Jantz’ vision for healthy living covers many lifestyle elements, and so he developed whole-person care to discover the root source of issues and help others arrive at a balance in emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

Dr. Jantz encourages healthy eating and often shares insight into how poor nutritional habits can contribute to existing disorders or create new ones.

“In a whole-person approach to treatment, the entire body is recognized as an important
component in depression,” says Dr. Gregg Jantz. “The whole-person approach accepts the
body as a complex organism and looks for systemic reasons for depression.”

Studying the body’s various nutritional needs, Dr. Jantz became aware of a link between low blood sugar and feelings of depression. Glucose (a form of sugar) is the body’s main source of fuel and is produced when we consume carbs, starches, and sugars. During digestion, the fuel is absorbed into the bloodstream or else stored in the liver as glycogen. Hypoglycemia happens when the amount of sugar in our blood doesn’t equal what’s needed to fuel the body’s activities.

From this condition arises mental fog, fatigue, weakness, confusion and more, which can all contribute to feelings of depression. While many people believe their lifestyle habits or past events have caused depression (and they may in fact be inciting factors), most don’t think to consider their diet. Dr. Gregory Jantz encountered too many patients that didn’t understand their nutrition, specifically their low blood sugar, was a potential cause of depression.

The abundance of food in our country often leads to self-medication, causing people to eat an excess of fatty and high-sugar foods. When this happens, the bloodstream is flooded with a surplus of fuel and usually causes a severe crash. The temporary relief or comfort that food brings quickly fades into low blood sugar crashes and symptoms of depression.

Dr. Gregory Jantz argues that depression can often be treated by helping the body correcting any nutritional deficiencies. He advocates healthier sleeping patterns, limiting calories and fatty foods, and avoiding caffeine as a source of energy.

“Relief from depression is a lot more attainable than most people know,” says Dr. Gregory Jantz. “Watching what you eat, getting a little exercise, and making sure to get out in the sun every now and then can have a tremendous impact on your well-being.”

Rocio Moustafa shares professional insight into antisocial personality disorder

Rocio Moustafa 4

Specialist behavioral expert Rocio Moustafa takes a closer look at the condition known as antisocial personality disorder.

VENTURA, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With more than 200,000 cases diagnosed in the United States each year, antisocial personality disorder is a mental health condition primarily characterized by a disregard for other people. An expert on behavior, mood, cognition, and perception from Southern California, Rocio Moustafa takes a closer look at those most likely to be affected, the symptoms, and the available treatment options when considering antisocial personality disorder.

"While antisocial personality disorder may begin to show symptoms, including risky and impulsive behavior, lying, and law-breaking, in childhood, the condition cannot be formally diagnosed until either adolescence or adulthood," explains Moustafa, who's currently based in the City of Los Angeles, the most populous city in California with an estimated population of four million.

Rocio Moustafa has also previously worked in Ventura, California, with both Los Angeles and Ventura known across the United States for their Mediterranean-like climate and rich cultures. "Individuals with antisocial personality disorder often tend to demonstrate, for example, a lack of regard for either their own safety or the safety of others around them," she explains, "as well as a tendency to lie, break laws, and act impulsively."

While symptoms may lessen with age, Moustafa reveals that antisocial personality disorder is considered a chronic condition which can last for decades, or, indeed, be lifelong. "Treatment may begin with talk therapy," she explains, "coupled with additional support for family members affected by their loved one's often extremely troubling and problematic personality disorder and its symptoms."

Requiring a medical diagnosis, those with antisocial personality disorder may experience any one or more of a large number of further behaviors and symptoms. These include, according to Moustafa, antisocial behavior, aggression, hostility, irritability, irresponsibility, deceitfulness, and manipulativeness, as well as physical substance abuse or dependence. "Their mood will often be one of anger, boredom, or general discontent," she adds.

"Family therapy, behavior therapy, and psychotherapy are all recommended forms of treatment for antisocial personality disorder," suggests Moustafa, wrapping up, "provided by either a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist, or a combination of the two."

Rocio Moustafa, from Los Angeles, California, is a behavioral expert specializing in antisocial personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, bipolar disorder, and passive-dependent personality disorder. She also specializes in sleep conditions, gambling addiction and its consequences, extreme or debilitating fears and phobias—including hemophobia and traumatophobia—and further health and wellness complaints tied to cognition, perception, and mood.

Dr. Paul J. Pearce of Nova Biologicals to be Featured on CUTV News Radio


PaulPearceNEW2 Lab

CONROE, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every day a new threat to your health and safety is announced in the media–like the recall of turkey products tainted by salmonella, a new strain of antibiotic resistant bacteria, E. coli in your lettuce or lead in your water. Thanks to scientist Paul Pearce, PhD, and his knowledge and experience in the laboratory sciences, ,we can all sleep more comfortably at night.

That’s because this exceptional guest, President and founder of Texas-based Nova Biologicals had the skills and foresight to address, in 1993, the vast need for public drinking water testing and to keep on extending the company’s range of laboratory testing services. From safeguarding the sterility of medical supplies…to ensuring new pharmaceuticals pass FDA and QA requirements…to examining food manufacturing facilities and testing food products, Nova Biologicals testing services make a crucial difference. And it’s not just a positive or negative result that makes the impact, it’s the way Nova Biologicals supports and consults with clients regarding the outcomes.

In moving ahead, Dr. Pearce and his company did not lose sight of their core capacity to test water for contaminants and chemicals—such as chlorine, lead, petrochemical manufacturing remnants, mercury, nitrates, and pesticides. Examining our water supply for substances that can trigger disease in humans has been a mission since that first year, when Nova Biological laboratories became specially certified, and tested about 50 water samples in July 1993. Now, in 2019, statistics reflect that Nova tests about 11,000 samples each month.

His company’s success can be attributed to many things including Dr. Pearce’s “entrepreneurial gene,” a no-holds-barred approach to quality, and a team of scientists who are highly-qualified, loyal and totally committed to their work. They check out anything that might have a microbial component which could include our air and soil, as well as the medical equipment used by doctors and hospitals and the stem cell preparations that represent the latest therapeutic miracle. They can even help a hospital identify potential contamination risks and meet the strictest Quality Assurance risk and safety regulations as required by The Joint Commission and Federal regulatory authorities.

Dr. Paul Pearce will be featured in a 12-part series on CUTV News Radio and each episode will explore a different aspect of how Nova Biologicals and its scientists identify the presence of microorganisms and chemicals. In the first installment, we are going to discuss the fastest, most accurate and precisely controlled laboratory testing capabilities for Legionella, a dangerous pathogen associated with Legionnaire’s disease, and how the test can be used by hospitals and environmental agencies to detect and reduce the threat of Legionnaire’s disease.

Dr. Pearce will go on to discuss water contamination and the health effects of common bacterial contaminants and chemicals in terms anyone can understand. Listen to this informative and significant series to learn about the science and personal health significance of bacteria, chemicals, allergens and toxins that may be in your water, food, cosmetics, and personal health care products and equipment.

CUTV News Radio will feature Paul Pearce of Nova Biologicals in interviews on Tuesdays at 1:00pm EDT , on April 23rd and May 7th with Doug Llewelyn, and April 30th and May 14th with Jim Masters.

Captozyme to Present Oxalate-Reducing Enzyme Clinical Study Results at American Urological Association Annual Meeting

Nephure Oxalate Reducing Enzyme

Results from Captozyme, Inc.’s post-market study of an innovative enzyme to support kidney health have been accepted for poster presentation on May 4 at the American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting in Chicago.

Nephure TM enzyme was evaluated vs. placebo in reduction of urinary oxalate associated with food oxalate, and will release results of the study May 4.

We are delighted to be presenting our clinical results, which further confirm the efficacy and potency of our oxalate-reducing enzyme to reduce urinary oxalate originating from food.”

— Helena Cowley, CEO, Captozyme

GAINESVILLE, FL, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gainesville, Fla. (April 18, 2019) – Results from Captozyme, Inc.’s post-market study of an innovative enzyme to support kidney health have been accepted for poster presentation on May 4 at the American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting in Chicago.

Emily Quintero, a medical student at the University of Florida, will present the moderated poster presentation.

Title: A Prospective, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Cross-Over Study Utilizing Orally Administered Oxalate decarboxylase (OxDC) to Reduce Urinary Oxalate
Poster Number: PD38-01
Location MCP: W181c
Date/Time: Saturday, May 4, 3:30 p.m. to 3:40 p.m.
Presenter: Emily Quintero

These findings can provide new options for individuals with Idiopathic Hyperoxaluria, a disorder characterized by increased urinary oxalate levels, which is often associated with excessive intake of dietary oxalate, decreased dietary calcium, or increased endogenous production1.

AUA guidelines recommend that clinicians counsel patients with calcium oxalate stones and relatively high urinary oxalate to limit oxalate-rich foods2 – a tall order for many patients due to variable levels of oxalate in a wide variety of nutritious plant-based foods3. Now, this innovative new enzyme could provide a first-of-its-kind solution for improved patient compliance for those following dietary guidelines for kidney stone management.

Captozyme’s poster presentation will include new positive results from a prospective, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, cross-over study in healthy volunteers.

“We are delighted to be presenting our clinical results, which further confirm the efficacy and potency of our oxalate-reducing enzyme to reduce urinary oxalate originating from food,” Helena Cowley, chief executive officer of Captozyme, said. “We look forward generating high-quality development data for NephureTM and other enzymes in our company pipeline.”

The company is the first in the world to provide a genetic test developed specifically for those following plant-based diets

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nutrigenomix Inc., a global leader in genetic testing for personalized nutrition, announces the launch of an exclusive new line of genetic tests catering to those seeking plant-based personalized nutrition – designed to suit the dietary needs of both vegetarians and vegans. The new test adds to the broad selection of genetic tests offered by Nutrigenomix and provides actionable genetic information to help healthcare professionals and their clients determine the best dietary approach for optimal health, wellness and performance for those following a plant-based lifestyle.

A growing body of evidence has linked plant-based diets to positive health outcomes and the trend is on the rise around the globe. Insufficient intake of certain nutrients has long been a concern when following a plant-based diet, but with this new test, healthcare professionals can provide personalized recommendations to help clients consume a diet that meets their individual nutritional needs. Similar to other tests that Nutrigenomix offers, this new test includes genetic markers that have been shown to affect nutrient metabolism, gluten intolerance, weight management, eating behaviors, cardiometabolic health and fitness, with the additional layer of advice tailored specifically to vegetarian and vegan food choices.

“Many healthcare practitioners that offer Nutrigenomix testing have clients that follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, whether for health, ethical, environmental or other reasons. Until now, these clients had been overlooked by genetic tests for personalized nutrition,” said Dr. Karen Eny, Director of Clinical Services at Nutrigenomix. “Our new test was developed to enable those individuals following a plant-based lifestyle to customize a diet that considers both food choices and their unique metabolic needs.”

According to a 2019 Mintel survey, most consumers are interested in DNA-based dietary advice, and studies show that personalized information is a powerful motivator to improve individual adherence compared to population-based recommendations. Nutrigenomix is at the forefront of research in this field and is one of the only genetic testing companies worldwide to fund and conduct original research in nutritional genomics and health and performance at several universities.

“This new test is a truly unique product in the personalized nutrition industry, and yet another example of how Nutrigenomix sets the standard for the field,” said Dr. Joel Kahn, a Michigan-based Cardiologist known as “America’s Healthy Heart Doc” by Reader’s Digest Magazine. “It's exciting to have this genetic test to personalize the plant-based nutrition recommendations I give to my patients.”

Dr. Ahmed El-Sohemy, Founder and Chief Science Officer of Nutrigenomix, presented the latest research on nutrigenomics and personalized nutrition at the American College of Nutrition Conference in Seattle last year. During this award lecture, Dr. El-Sohemy shared findings of the first randomized-controlled trial of DNA-based dietary recommendations and its influence on eating behaviors by his research team at the University of Toronto. “Individuals who received DNA-based dietary advice were much more likely to follow the dietary recommendations they were given,” said Dr. El-Sohemy. “This results in greater improvements to their diet, which directly impacts several indicators of health.”

“Our genetic tests are based on the latest scientific discoveries in the field of nutrigenomics.” said Dr. Bibiana Garcia-Bailo, Director of Research and Development. “We focus on targeted, action-oriented nutrition and lifestyle genetic information. Nutrigenomix uses only the highest quality studies and most rigorous scientific standards to select the genetic markers that go into our tests.”

With offices in Canada, UK, Australia, Brazil and the United States, Nutrigenomix is expanding rapidly to meet the growing demands by healthcare professionals and consumers for a high-quality genetic testing service. As the only nutrigenetics testing company worldwide that was established at a major university, the University of Toronto, Nutrigenomix is regarded as one of the most trusted sources of genetic information for personalized nutrition.

Manpulating Atomic Structure with Human Electricity. This book is a radical reinterpretation of ancient Egyptian Art and Symbolism.

Stunningly insightful”

— Dr. Carmen Boulter, PhD, The Pyramid Code

PAGOSA SPRINGS, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, April 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Electric Ancient Egyptians:
Manipulating Atomic Structure with Human Electricity

Pagosa Springs, Colorado: April 17, 2019, James Ernest Brown, author and independent Egyptian researcher, announced the release of the revised and expanded 3rd edition of his ground-breaking book, Electric Ancient Egyptians: Manipulating Atomic Structure with Human Electricity. Brown’s book is a radical re-interpretation of ancient Egyptian art and symbolism. The updated expanded award-winning and critically-acclaimed 3rd edition has fifty new pages of research and more than sixty compelling new images and illustrations that present more compelling evidence for his thesis.

Brown hypothesizes that ancient Egyptian pharaohs understood natural forms of energy, such as static electricity and unseen forms of energy, now referred to by scientists as subtle energy. He believes they were manipulating atomic structure with amped up human electricity, using it as an igniting catalyst to transmute elements as part of their royal duties. Brown asserts that temple carvings and artifacts reveal that the ancient Egyptians could generate electricity and electrify specific parts of the human body. The abundance of gold didn’t represent wealth but was used instead to facilitate remarkable uses of natural forms of energy. There is anecdotal evidence that the ancient Egyptians were able to produce their own gold. The ancient name of Egypt was Khem, from which our word alchemy comes, as well as the ancient tradition of transmuting base metals into gold. Gold would have been the metal of choice since it is the best surface electrical conductor. Brown has concluded that what have been misinterpreted as ceremonies were in fact visual instructions and detailed formulas, which he believes were visual alchemical formulas used to manipulate atomic structure. They were carefully carved on temple walls and painted in tombs throughout Egypt.

Brown’s journey began in 1977 with an epiphany regarding the nature of pyramids and a resulting relentless desire to comprehend the true purpose of the Great Pyramid of Giza. As a professional builder and designer, he further developed a passion to decode the purposefully designed monuments of ancient Egypt. There is considerable disagreement about the interpretation of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, and the interpretations don’t correspond with the paintings and reliefs shown on temple walls and tombs. Brown believes these require a radical re-interpretation. He states “Our eyes are the tools for critical interpretation, and the scientific and technological implications for free energy are enormous.”

James Brown has traveled to Egypt multiple times since the 1970s, gathering evidence and data to support his alternative theories and ongoing research. His books are the result of more than forty years of original research and evidence gathered from grassroots research expeditions to Giza, Luxor, Saqqara, Abydos and Abu Simbel. This ongoing research presents compelling evidence that traditional interpretations of ancient Egyptian monuments, artifacts, temple and tomb art, need to be reconsidered and re-evaluated. He plans to build a scale model replica using pyramid geometry, modern materials, and updated methods, to demonstrate that the Great Pyramid’s main purpose was to electrify water.

James Brown has worked as a commercial contractor and builder for five decades. His family-owned construction company has built more than 2,300 homes, commercial buildings, and multi-family dwellings, winning five national awards for energy efficiency in cold weather climates. He describes himself as a practical thinker, and believes that the logic and results of his research need to make practical sense. Since 1977 he has diligently researched how the ancient Egyptians understood and used natural forms of energy such as lightning, static electricity, and telluric currents. In 2015 Brown founded the Ancient Energy Research Center whose mission is to conduct scientific research with natural energy sources such as solar, static electricity, and cold fusion, using innovative methods of experimentation.
