We studied the influence of a 40% glucose solution given internally and distilled water applied externally after both had been exposed in a pyramid. The patients were new-born babies with serious pathologies. An objective assessment was provided by an analysis of the Immediate State Index, which reflects the state of the patient’s sympatho-adrenal system.
Data on 20 patients was analysed. In all cases, even in patients with very low indices close to zero, after the administration of 1ml of the 40% glucose solution the ISI rose substantially practically to normal levels. The same happened after the external application of 1ml of water that had been exposed in the pyramid.
