Providencia rettgeri (P. rettgeri) is the key organism for gastrointestinal tract infections due to its high virulence properties. The current study was designed to investigate the effect of Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment on P. rettgeri in lyophilized as well as revived state for antimicrobial susceptibility pattern, biochemical characteristics, and biotype number. The lyophilized strain of P. rettgeri (ATCC 9250) 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 162 after revival (Study I). The revived sample of Gr. IIB was retreated on day 162 (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 after their sub-culturing. All the experimental parameters were studied using automated MicroScan Walk-Away® system. The antimicrobial susceptibility and minimum inhibitory concentration were significantly improved by 71.43%, out of twenty-eight and 56.25%, out of thirty-two, respectively in the treated cells of P. rettgeri as compared to the control. The biochemical reactions also showed the significant (60.61%) alteration in the treated sample with respect to control. The biotype numbers were substantially changed in all the treated groups as compared to the control. Moreover, the organism was changed as Proteus mirabilis in all the treated groups except in Gr. IIA, as compared to the control. These results suggested that biofield treatment has a significant impact on P. rettgeri in lyophilized as well as revived state.
In conclusion, the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern and the MIC values showed the significant 78.57% (out of twenty-eight) and 65.63% (out of thirty-three) alteration, respectively of tested antimicrobials as compared to the control strain of P. rettgeri. Moreover, about 71.43% antimicrobials sensitivity and 56.25% MIC values of tested antimicrobials were improved after biofield energy treatment to the strain of P. rettgeri. Besides, the biochemical reactions pattern showed the significant 60.61% alteration as compared to the control. Moreover, the biotype numbers of biofield treated strain of P. rettgeri were also changed in all the treated groups as compared to the control. Based on the changed biotype numbers after biofield treatment, new species was identified as Proteus mirabilis in all the treated groups except P. rettgeri in Gr. IIA on day 10 as compared to the control. Thus, Mr. Trivedi’s unique biofield energy treatment could be applied as an alternative therapeutic approach against antimicrobials to improve the antibiogram profile against microbes. Based on these results, it seems that biofield treatment could be used as an alternate of existing drug therapy in near future.
