of Etherium Gold

A biofeedback and neurofeedback inquiry into the biological and
neurophysiological effects of taking Etherium Gold powder sublingually;
a naturally occurring trace mineral deposit distributed by Harmonic
This initial study used ten people, five male and five female,
ranging in age from 17 to 52. They have no known physical, emotional
or mental problems at present. All were given a basic understanding
of the testing procedure and of the nature of Etherium Gold. No
expected results were discussed with the subjects, nor did the
experimenter make any guesses about outcomes or explain the objectives
until the procedure was complete.
A J&J I-410 biofeedback unit with a software program designed
by Physiodata Corporation was utilized to record and complete
data. This allowed the experimenter to monitor the brainwave patterns,
the heart rate, the blood volume pressure, skin conductance (GSR)
and surface skin temperature constantly for the entire experimental
session. The subjects were seated comfortably in a typical recliner
such that physical tiredness or discomfort should not be an issue
during the duration of the process. Fresh electrodes and paste
were used with each subject. A fresh bottle of Etherium Gold was
supplied by Harmonic Innerprizes to administer.
Data were gathered on each subject during two separate sessions.
The first session was utilized to develop baseline data. Each
subject in turn was hooked up to the biofeedback and neurofeedback
equipment. Data were recorded related to their predominant brainwave
patterns, heart rate, GSR and skin temperature. GSR measures the
change in electrical potential of the skin. Greater moisture production
(a sign of increased emotional activation) is demonstrated by
an increase in electrical potential. These are shown on graphs
on the computer screen. Steps were taken to ascertain that this
was a typical reading in that they had no out of the ordinary
influences on their mental, emotional or physical states.
session was held one week after the first base lines were recorded.
Subjects were hooked up under the same circumstances and new base
lines recorded which were then compared to the original of the
In all ten
cases, the second base line corresponded almost exactly with the
earlier reading. With the client still hooked up to the monitor,
and with data being continuously recorded, app. 1/8 teaspoon of
Etherium Gold was administered sublingually. Biofeedback and neurofeedback
data continued to be recorded for another 15 minutes. The software
allows an examination of the data gathered over a period of time
in summary tables. The data gathered were studied to determine
what changes, if any, occurred, both biologically and neurologically,
comparing pre- and post- administration of the Etherium Gold.
In five out of ten cases, the biological signals were different
before and after administration of Etherium Gold. In nine out
of ten cases, the brainwave patterns were found to be significantly
different after administration of the Etherium Gold. In almost
all cases, this difference occurred between 30 seconds and 3 minutes
after administration and continued to be evident for the rest
of the recording session, which was between 10 and 15 minutes.
the five cases with changes in biological signals:
subjects had dramatic fluctuations of GSR measurements. In both
cases, the GSR signals were much smoother after administration.
- Two subjects
showed an increase in temperature, as measured in the fingertip,
of an average of 4 degrees.
- One subject,
whose base line measurements indicated a heart rate pattern
that was elevated based on their age and weight, dropped into
a normal range.
changes were distinctly different in each case but with common
themes. Subjects fell into three basic categories of predominant
brainwave activity, according to base line measurements:
- High theta
- low beta
- High beta
- low theta
between theta and beta
In these three categories:
- Four subjects
with high theta-low beta activity tended to be balanced out
after administration, with theta dropping and beta rising. Alpha
activity showed an increase.
- One subject
with high theta-low beta showed no change.
- Two subjects
with high beta-low theta tended to be balanced out after administration,
with beta dropping and theta rising. Alpha activity showed an
- Three subjects
with balanced beta-theta were found to have increased alpha
- In the
nine cases where change was recorded, there was a strong tendency
to show more strength across all frequency bands.
This has been an introductory examination of the impact of Etherium
Gold on the biological and neurological states of humans. The
results indicate that there is a clear need for research in this
area because an impact is definitely occurring. The impact seems
to be less obvious in the biological measurements than in the
neurological, at least in the subjects examined. Taken as a whole,
they seem to indicate that individuals become more balanced and
calm after administration of Etherium Gold. The changes in GSR
indicate a decrease in emotional reactivity. The increased finger
temperature is an indicator of increased peripheral circulation
which indicates greater relaxation.
most obvious and consistent results occurred in the EEG measurements:
frequencies tended to balance out.
- All frequency
bands showed greater activation.
We could casually
say that people with high theta activity (as compared to beta)
are considered to be "right brained," (creative, meditative,
artistic, spatially oriented). People with high beta activity
(as compared to theta) are considered to be "left brained,"
(logical, mathematically inclined, linearly oriented). Etherium
Gold appears to balance the differences in the strength of these
frequency ranges. Therefore, we could say that Etherium Gold tends
toward helping people become more "whole brained."
It would take
other, more in-depth, studies to determine the consistency of
these results as well as how long the effects last, and if there
is some kind of cumulative effects of repeated administration.
A surprising, but clearly dominant, effect of taking the Etherium
Gold was the increase in relative "neurological energy"
across all frequency bands. Apparently, the Etherium Gold somehow
has the effect of energizing or opening up neuronal passageways.
This preliminary study was clear evidence that there is a positive
neurological impact, at least temporarily, through the administration
of Etherium Gold. The indication is that it somehow provides an
environment whereby the brain moves toward a state of homeostasis.
Past neurological studies have indicated that when, through some
method such as brainwave training, the brain releases control
of its patterning, it tends toward a balanced state. This study
indicates that Etherium Gold may help provide this environment.
Whether or not the effects of the Etherium Gold upon the neuro
processing were consistent over time, it provided an opportunity
for the brain to "understand" how the state of balance
In the opinion
of this researcher, the results clearly indicate that the intake
of Etherium Gold creates a positive neurological and probably
physiological response. Certainly, more research is in order,
especially along the lines of how much change is maintained over
