REGENERATION OF BODY PARTS
USING CHICKEN DNA
THIS IS QUITE CLEAR: HERE WE HAVE EMBRYONIC CHICKEN DNA BEING
AUTOMATICALLY ALTERED TO SEVERAL OTHER FORMS OF DNA I.E. DOGS,
CATS & HUMANS.
THE QUESTION IS HOW?
THE “SCIENCE” OF GENETICS HOLDS THAT THE DNA CONTAINS A
COMPUTER PROGRAM WHICH CAN NOT BE ALTERED. WHOOPS! THAT’S
JUST BEEN DIS-PROVEN. AND, OF COURSE, THE SCIENCE OF GENETICS HAS
NEVER FOUND WHAT STARTS GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION IN THE FIRST
PLACE – SO, FOR THEM TO MISS THAT DNA CAN BE SHARED FROM
MAMMAL TO MAMMAL IS UNDERSTANDABLE – THEY DON’T WANT TO
BUT, IT IS HARD TO SWALLOW I.E. CHICKEN PARTS REGROWING A DOG’S
FOOT OR HEALING HUMAN BED SORES. NOW WHY?
ONE OF THE KEYS IS THAT THE CHICKEN BASE MATERIAL COMES FROM
VERY YOUNG CHICKENS WITH IMMATURE IMMUNE SYSTEMS – SINCE THE
IMMUNE SYSTEM AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM WORK TOGETHER. THEN
WE KNOW THAT THIS CHICKEN DNA IS NOT FULLY PROGRAMMED AS
CHICKEN DNA. NOT QUITE STEM CELLS AND NOT QUITE FULLY
DIFFERENTIATED CHICKEN CELLS EITHER. SO, ALMOST A BLANK BLACK
BOARD. DITTO THE MICE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE ARTICLE.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS THIS: AROUND ALL EMBRYOS AND IMMATURE
ORGANISMS THERE IS A FIELD INTO WHICH THAT ORGANISM GROWS –
PICTURES HAVE BEEN TAKEN OF THIS PROCESS – IT IS WITHOUT MYSTERY
AND NOT A THEORY.
AS STATED IN THE GENETIC LOGIC ESSAY – INITIAL GENETIC
DIFFERENTIATION IS CAUSED THE FIELD SURROUNDING THE ORGANISM.
MEANING THAT IF YOU CUT THE FOOT OFF – A FIELD REMAINS – SINCE
THAT FIELD IS THERE AFTER THE FOOT IS GONE, THEN THE FIELD MUST
HAVE BEEN THERE BEFORE THE FOOT GOT THERE, WHICH WE KNOW IS A
SO, HERE WE HAVE FURTHER PROOF THAT IT IS THE FIELD THAT CAUSES
THE INITIAL GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION. THIS IS EVEN A MORE GRAPHIC
CASE WHERE THE FIELD IS TAKING CHICKEN DNA AND TURNING IT INTO
HUMAN, DOG OR THE DNA OF ANY MAMMAL. YIKES – A PRETTY
POWERFUL FIELD. WELL THE 2-D DOES CONTROL THE 3-D – HERE IS
PROOF OF THAT:
A patented gel extracted from immunological immature chickens has been shown to
regrow limbs of pets as well as successfully treat burns and bedsores.
When, in 1994, Dr Ellen Heber-Katz of the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia was
monitoring marked mice in a group that she used as experi- mental animals in connection
with her research on multiple sclerosis, she received a surprise. The marked mice could
not be found! They had punch holes in the ears for identification, and at first it seemed as
though a mistake had been made, for now all of the mice had ears without any holes in
them. The experiment was repeated and it became clear that the holes were repairing
themselves in about three weeks and leaving no scars. Initially, a number of immature cells
formed along the edges of the hole to give a regeneration-blastema which rapidly
subdivided so that the hole gradually closed up. There was perfect re-formation of
cartilage, blood vessels, and skin.
In contrast to water lizards, for example, mammals have been considered to have very
little ability to reconstruct parts of the body. The severed tail or leg of a newt can regrow
completely. The cells just beneath the cut surface form undifferentiated mesenchyme cells
– a blastema which the grows further and forms precisely the differentiated cells that are
distal from the cut.
With humans, it is known that the final joint of the fourth finger in a small child can
regrow. This was discovered following an accidental failure to cover a cut surface with
skin, which would have otherwise prevented the regrowth.
Luckily, Dr Heber-Katz’s mice were unaware that what they had done was impossible
according to established medical doctrine.
What was special about these mice? Well, part of their immune defence was missing: the
alpha- beta T-cells. These so called MRL mice had been bred for studies of auto-immune
diseases such as lupus.
Further experiments carried out by Dr Heber- Katz and her group have shown that these
mice can also regrow bone, muscles and the central nervous system. For example, a
docked mouse regrew its tail, a severed visual nerve repaired itself, and mobility returned
after about one month following partial removal of spinal marrow. In addition, the hearts of the MRL mice have the ability to recover after extensive damage.
In the area of stem cell research, methods are currently intensively developed for the
repair of tissues and organs in the human body. Stem cells have the ability to develop into
types of specialised (differentiated) cells. Pluripotent stem cells can produce most types
of cells, while multipotent stem cells can give only a limited number of different cell
types. It is known that adults have stem cells in the skin, the liver, the brain, bone
marrow and elsewhere, but they are present in only small amounts and are difficult to
isolate. What is needed s a method to deprogram differentiated cells so that they become
preferably pluripotent stem cells or at least multipotent stem cells, which then could be
made to differentiate to the desired type of cell.
It is possible, however, that the problem of how to make human arms and legs regenerate
them- selves is nearly solved. The readers can learn about this in what follows.
Problem solved ?
In 1964 the veterinary Dr Harry Robertson happened to burn his hand, and sought relief
by quickly immersing it in a gel which was nearby. After 10 minutes the pain had
disappeared, there were no blisters, and in due course the hand healed without any scars.
The gel was a fresh extract of chicken bones, used as a cheap source of protein. After
testing its healing properties on animals and humans, Dr Robertson began to marker it
under the name Revital.
Dr Robertson claims that Revital is antibacterial and antiviral, can regenerate nerves and
muscles, can heal third-degree burns without scar formation so that transplantation is
unnecessary, and can eliminate acne scars and heal difficult bed sores.
Healing seriously injured pets
In one example, injuries in cats leading to the loss of 2.5 cm broad pieces of muscle were
packed with Revital three times per day for a period of three weeks, leading to complete
re- growth of the muscle.
A dog had been dragged beneath a car, losing most of its thigh muscle and leaving a large
part of the thigh bone and hip joint exposed. As an alternative to having the dog put
down, Dr Robertson applied Revital and bandaged the injury, whereupon the dog
appeared to feel little or no pain within an hour. When the injury was rebandaged several
days later, it was found to be completely clean and healing well, although it smelled
strongly. The dog recovered completely and new hair grew.
Dr Robertson had been taught that when muscles and nerves are destroyed, they cannot
regenerate themselves; but in numerous cases he found that regeneration did occur when
Revital was used. On one occasion, a poodle had chewed off its foot and had the stump
packed with Revital, which led to the growth of a new foot! Another dog suffered 40 per
cent burns to its body and healed completely with Revital.
Dr Robertson documented his claims by taking a series of photographs throughout the
Revital patent and registration
Several persons have testified to the successful treatment of their burns, cuts, abrasion,
herpes simplex blisters and bedsores with Revital.
The production of Revital is straightforward and is done by extracting ground-up chicken
legs with vinegar. The whole procedure is described in U.S. Patent No. 4,455,302 of June
1984. One kilogram of chicken legs gives 50 grams of Revital. In 1977, Dr Robertson
began to sell products which he had made himself. He applied to the US Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) for permission to market Revital as a “Class I Device” (baby
powder also belongs to this group) and this was allowed without prescription since it
contained no physically damaging substances. The sales of Revital in the local pharmacy
rose to $39,000 per month from word- of-mouth advertising, and in addition there were
In June 1981 issue of Science Digest published a four- page article about Dr Robertson. In
the same year, the FDA asked Dr Robertson to register Revital as a drug- a process
which could take up to 10 years and cost millions of dollars, but with the aid of lawyers
he was able to retain the “Class I Device” designation.
Subsequently, the FDA reported that Revital contained high levels of bacteria and did not
comply with its requirements. Dr Robertson was therefore forbidden to market his
FDA stops Dr Robertson and Revital
The FDA was required by the Freedom of Information Act to produce the results of their
sterility tests on the three random samples they had examined, but were unable to provide
any evidence of contamination. At Dr Robertson’s request, several random samples of
Revital were sent to four different independent laboratories, and all reported that the
product satisfied sterility requirements of the United States Pharmacopoeia (UPS).
(Note: Preparations of Revital have a typical pH of ca.4.6, which, to say the least, is not
ideal for the growth of bacteria!) However, the FDA was determined to prevent the sale
of Revital. Dr Robertson was now nearly 80 years old and too disheartened to try to
market Revital in another country. Thus did the FDA succeed in killing off this miracle
Relationship between the experiments
What is the connection between Dr. Robertson’s Revital discovery and Dr Heber-Katz’s
experiments on mice? The answer is that the mice had an incomplete immune defence
system. In order to achieve regeneration, the chicken leg extract must be from
immunologically immature chickens, i.e., less than nine weeks old. How does chicken leg
extract from immunologically immature chickens differ from that from immunologically
mature chickens? Nobody knows, but it should be possible to find out. It is possible that
a tissue extract from immunologically immature animals has the ability to transform
human skin cells (which are easy to grow) to stem cells, solving the problem of how to
produce large amounts of stem cells.
Some Nice Chicken... What ?
Remeber when you were little and you got sick and your mother made a big steaming pot of hot chicken soup for you? Somehow, you always seemed to feel better after you ate it. It was silly, of course, and you chuckled over it years later. "Jewish penicillin", you called it. "Another of Mom's miraculous home remedies", you said. Now comes Dr Harry Robertson to tell us that maybe Mom was right after all. Maybe there is something to chicken soup's mysterious curative powers.
Dr Harry Robertso is the inventor of Revital, a product he unhesitatingly calls "one of the great breakthroughs in medical science in the last century". He claims Revital has the pwoer to heal the worst third degree burns imaginable without scarring and without skin grafting. Furthermore, he says, it will regenerate both muscle and nerve tissue.
"What I have done", Dr Robertson boasts, "is something that has never been done before. No one to my knowledge has ever proved that you could completely regenerate both muscle and nerve tissue quickly, cleanly, and painlessly. But I did it and I have the documentation to prove it and if I live long enough it's going to make me a Nobel laureate. In my opinion, this is a greater discovery than penicillin."
Nobody has ever accused Harry Robertson of false modesty when it comes to his achievements. But as James Joyce once observed, "A man of genius makes no mistakes". People are inclined to suffer his occasional boorishness because they recognize that behind the bluster and hype and the self-promotion beats the heart of a brilliant innovator. "Harry's problem", says his friend Jack Ridgway, "is that he's a jump ahead of most folks -- and doesn't know it".
Dr Harry Robertson is an energetic 69-year old Salisbury veterinarian who accidentally discovered Revital while he was looking for an inexpensive source of protein for 3rd world countries. As he tells it, he was working late in his lab one night when he spilled caustic acid on his hand. Since he didn't have a conventional burn remedy handy, he says he grabbed the first thing he could find -- a jar of his "liquid protein" -- and applied it.
To his utter amazement, the pain and the redness went away in about 10 minutes and there was no blistering the next day. From that point on, he began using the "protein" whenever he burned himself. He gave it to his wife, Thelma, and he handed it out to his friends and neighbors, all of whom, he says, achieved the same results -- a few minutes after they applied Revital, the pain went away. There was no blistering, no infection, and no scarring.
Ironically, Dr Robertson had to abandon his quest for a cheap source of protein after an even cheaper source -- soybeans -- was discovered. He had been using chicken byproducts -- specifically ground-up chicken feet -- but he says he couldn't compete with soy products. He turned, instead, to the manufacture of canned dog food.
He arrived in Salisbury, a major chicken processing area on the Eastern shore, in 1962, looking for a cheap, plentiful source of discarded poultry products to use in dog food. A retired army officer with 20 years of service in the Veterinary Corps, he was custom-packing canned dog food for a number of nationally known dog food companies, using a patented process he had invented a few years before.
After he got out of the business in the late 60s (he claims he "was squeezed out by a bunch of investment bankers carrying briefcases instead of guns"), he turned his attention to running a small animal hospital in Salisbury and perfecting Revital, so named, he says, because of its "revitalizing effect on human tissue". Whatever its effect, there's no denying that people are taken aback when they learn that the main ingredient in Revital is chicken feet. They find it slightly repugnant.
"I don't know why", Robertson says. "There's nothing wrong with it. It's a perfectly logical source. Chicken feet are nothing but amino acids and amino acids are the building blocks of the body. Hedck, I take a couple of tablespoons of powder every day and it's put about 8 pounds of muscle on my body. It's pure and clean and perfectly safe. There's nothing in Revital that can harm you".
The US Food and Drug Administration agrees. It approved Revital in 1978 -- not as a drug, strangely enough, but as a device, a "Class I device", the same lassification as that of ordinary baby powder. The FDA says Revital (like baby powder) can be sold over the counter without a prescription because it contains nothing harmful to a person's health.
Dr Robertson says Revital has "basically the same nutrients that cells need to rejuvenate themselves". He confesses he doesn't know exactly how or why it works, but the amino acids in it (there are 19, according to the label) probably "stimulate both the DNA and the RNA of cells", causing them to multiply and grow. It is not a protein, however, although he frequently refers to it that way.
Dr Robertson first became aware of the reparative effects of Revital while taking a course in burn therapy in Chicago. He became acquainted with a doctor who specialized in burn research. "He seemed upset one day and, when I asked him what was wrong, he said he was having problems healing 3rd degree burns on some of his experimental rabbits. He said the skin grafts dried out too quickly and wouldn't take".
Dr Robertson suggested Revital. The doctor agreed to try it, but midway through the procedure he ran out of grafts so he treated several of the rabbits with Revital alone. When he checked the rabbits a few days later he found that not only had the "Revital-ized" grafts held, but when he re-dressed the wounds of the rabbits that had been treated with Revital alone, he noticed also that healthy tissue was growing inside the burn area, something that is not supposed to happen in 3rd degree burns "because reparative cells normally don't migrate towards the center of the burn, they stop right at the edge"...
Later, the Chicago doctor used Revital to treat a young boy with severely burned legs. The youth "recovered completely", according to Dr Robertson, and in the process he discovered something else amazing about Revital. It stopped infections.
"In a majority of burn cases", Dr Robertson says, "victims die from infections, not the burns themselves, and infections are caused by decaying tissue. The greatest danger is that the dead tissue will get into the bloodstream and cause death so it is imperative to remove it before that happens. The process is called debridement and it can be excruciatingly painful because the skin is literally scrubbed away. In this case, however, there was absolutely no need to clean the wound. Revital did the job beautifully. It completely sterilized it within a day or two and the boy recovered nicely with a minimum of scarring".
A few years later, Dr Robertson treated a dog that had been hit by a car and was near death. The dog had been dragged under the car for several feet. Most of the thigh muscles had been ripped away, and a large part of the femur and hip joint were exposed. Dr Robertson says he told the owner it was "hopeless". He recommended putting the dog to sleep, but the owner pleaded with him to save it.
He says he told her the only thing he could possibly recommend was Revital, but he had never before used it on such massive injuries and could not guarantee it would work. She told him to do anything he could. As soon as he got the dog out of shock he saturated the wounds with the powder and bandaged the dog. Within an hour, he says, the dog "appeared to be experiencing little or no pain". When he redressed the wound a few days later, he says it was "perfectly clean" and seemed to be "healing nicely although it smelled terrible" (something which is not uncommon when using Revital on wounds).
Today, the dog is alive and well and "running faster than ever", according to her owners, Mr and Mrs Brewington. Mrs Brewington says the hair has grown over most of the wounds...
"I don;t know how it worked", Dr Robertson says, "but it did. The dog is vcertainly normal in every respect today, which flies in the face of everything I learned in veterinary school. Once nerves and muscles are destroyed, they're supposed to stay destroyed. They're not supposed to regenerate. But they do. When Revital is used, they grow right back good as new. That's what's so crazy about it. The dog's leg should have atrophied".
Allan Williams, who manages the bookstore at Salisbury State University, had an experience similar to the Brewingtons'. His dog, a shepherd named Lady, was accidnetally burned by boiling water. Mr Williams, who was one of Dr Robertson's assistants in the animal hospital at the time, says the dog had 3rd degree burns over almost a third of the lower part of her body and hind legs.
"The hair was gone and she was burned right down to bare tissue", he says. "Harry treated her with the powder every three days and after the first week you could see a noticeable difference. The skin was pink and healthy-looking. Her hair started growing back in 5 or 6 weeks. She didn't seem to be in any pain the day after the accident and she started eating right away".
Mr Williams says Lady, who is now 12 (she was about 3 when the accident occurred), completely recovered in about 9 weeks. He says her skin is in "perfect shape", although he can see a "slight difference in coloration where she was burned. "It's a bit lighter, but the skin is very soft and pliable, not at all like scar tissue". There's only a small patch where the hair isn't growing, which in itself is remarkable because hair normally does not grow on scar tissue.
Mr Williams remembers a couple of other "basket cases" Dr Robertson treated; in particular a poodle that was brought in with a cut pad. "Harry stitched it and bandaged it, but somehow the dog got the bandage off and chewed the foot off. All that was left was the bony structure of the foot. Harry packed it with Revital and made a cast for it and the dog grew a whole new foot".
Dr Robertson says he saved a cat's leg in a similar manner. The cat was brought to him with a gangrenous leg. It had been declawed, but the veterinarian who had declawed it apparently put the bandage on too tight, cutting the circulation. Dr Robertson says he packed the leg with powder and redressed it every few days and eventually the leg and foot grew back completely.
Mr Williams can recall only two of Dr Robertson's experiments with Revital that failed: "One time Harry took a section of bone out of an old cat to see it it would grow a new one, but it didn't work". Another time, "he tried to use the protein to grow hair. He's bald and he had me smear the stuff on his head every day for 6 weeks... [ missing page in photocopy ]
Meanwhile, much of the Salisbury medical establishment either disparages Harry Robertson or adopts a wait-and-see attitude. Ronald Davis, a dentist who started treating his patients with Revital about 6 years ago, says he thinks Dr Robertson may be onto something. He started using Revital primarily on diabetic patients, who are prone to develop dry sockets after extractions (their blood doesn't really clot), and he says he hasn't had a dry socket in 6 years.
Patients "healed faster, with a minimum of pain and virtually no inflammation" -- and he has had essentially the same results treating patients with periodontal disease. In most cases "the pain is gone and the tissue is pink and healthy" within 24 hours. Furthermore, Revital has "virtually eliminated the need for antibiotics" in periodontal cases.
Dr Richard Snyder, an associate of Dr Davis, says Revital "is effective in shrinking the size of periodontal pockets". He's also used it to treat abscesses and herpetic lesions and in every case, he says, the pain disappears almost instantly. "While I can't really say it heals faster", he adds, "it does seem to have a positive impact on pain".
Impressed as they are with Revital, Dr Davis and Dr Snyder are still not ready to mortgage the farm for it. They both believe it has to be studied further. "Based on what I've seen so far, it works, but I'ld like to see the mechanism involved", Dr Davis says. Adds Dr Snyder, "My guess is it works because we're putting the building blocks of the body right at the site of the problem. But I think that [hypothesis] should be tested".
At least 3 pharmaceutical firms are doing just that, although officially they deny it. A spokeman for one of the firms identified by Dr Robertson (and confirmed by Jack Ridgway) said that not only did the company not send a representative to Salisbury to study Revital, "We've never even heard of it". Another firm, which reportedly was preparing to have several pounds of the powder shipped to its labs for testing, said it had not yet decided to investigate it.
Why all the pussy-footing around? "Competition", confides a member of a natiowide drug chain's research and development team, who admits off-record that his company is interested in Revital. "If what this guy says is true, if this powder of his does half the things he says it does, he's sitting on a 7-figure deal -- and no company in its right mind is going to run around blabbing about it".
That may explain why commercial interests tread cautiously, but what about non-profit organization? Dr Robertson says hardly any of them have shown any interest and he wishes he knew why. Certainly it hasn't been for a lack of trying. He has lugged a suitcase full of video tapes and time-lapse pictures all over the country trying to drum up interest in Revital. "Most people", he says, "couldn't wait to get rid of me."
He says he went to the Army's Brooke Burn Center in San Antonio TX three times at his own expense and "barely got the time of day". On the last trip, he says, the colonel in charge "sloughed me offf to a major who said, I don;t know why they sent you to me, I'm getting out in two days". When he tried to show the director of the burn unit at the Crozer-Chester Medical Cneter in Chester PA, photographs of his work, he says, "The guy told me 'I'm not interested;', and he walked away".
He says he's contacted the University of California, U. of Maryland, and the U. of Nebraska, and tried to convince them to test Revital, but they turned him down cold. "I don't know why", he adds, "but I do know that if it hadn't been for Bill Crosby and Tony Silvetti and a few others, I'd be dead".
Bill Crosby is Col. William H Crosby, a renowned hematologist and senior investigator at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in Washington. Tony Silvetti is Dr Anthony N Silvetti, a Chicago physician and former US Navy doctor. Col Crosby says he used the powder for about 6 years while running a clinic in El Centro CA.
"I used it mainly in the treatment of indolent and infected wounds, primarily bedsores, that are slow to heal", he says. "It was astonishing. It cleaned them up and healed them in rapid fashion. I don't know why, but my hunch is it shortcuts the problem of nutrition. One problem in indolent wounds is the blood supply is inadequate so the wound is not getting the necessary nutrients to heal itself. Revital seems to put the nutrients 'where the action is'.
Dr Crosby is "sure Revital works", although he concedes he's seen Dr Robertson's photos of paw regeneration and is "not particularly convinced by them". Still, he says, while regeneration of muscles and nerves may be contrary to everything he was taught in medical school, "Every year I'm seeing things contrary to what I learned. So I've learned to keep my mind open. It may turn out that Harry's observations are reproducible and accurate. Certainly, from my experience, the powder does clean up infected wounds and it does seem to speed up the healing process".
Dr Silvetti is considerably less enthusiastic, although he believes Revital "should be given a fair trial". he says he's used it in a "limited number of cases and my experience has not been like I would have liked it to have been". He says he used it with "severely ill patients, who are not good patients to begin with, and the results were not that impressive. It didn't harm anyone, but there was not complete healing of lesions in some cases". He would like to see somebody study it further.
Dr Gary Gibbons, a surgeon at New England's Deaconess Hospital in Boston, says he 's been applying Revital in the treatment of foot ulcers (both diabetic and non-diabetic) for "about 3 months, but it's too early to make any report on it. We don't have enough experience with it yet".
Dr Andrew Munster, director of the Baltimore Regional Burn Center at Baltimore City hospitals, feels the same way. He says he's tried Revital, but is not yet prepared to say it works.
"I've used it on two patients with small leg ulcers, and it worked on one, but the other guy committed suicide before I could tell whether it had any effect. That's not enough experience to evaluate it". However, Dr Munster says he's impressed enough by the literature he's seen "to give it a chance", and he expects to begin using it shortly in large burn cases. "I don't expect miracles", he adds. "I'm looking for it to facilitate healing. If it does that I'll be satisfied".
Harry Robertson says not to worry, it will do that and more. Forget scars. Forget skin grafts. Forget infection, loss of fluids and amputation. Revital will take care of all those things -- plus it will regenerate nerves and muscles. And that's only the things Harry Roberton knows Revital will do. If someone wants to take the time and trouble to run some tests on it, he says, there's no telling what they might find. Maybe even a cure for... But that's another story.
CAN POWDERED CHICKEN FEET REGENERATE NEURONS?
Because chicken feet have the potential to regenerate, including nerves, bone, and muscle, ground-up preparations of this poultry waste product (in the past, called Revital) can be used to promote regeneration and healing in spinal cord injury (SCI). Given its potential, it was unfortunate that the FDA stopped these efforts, spearheaded by veterinarian Dr. Harry Robertson several decades ago.
Obtaining the source material is easy because chicken feet are discarded as waste products. The key to preparing this regenerative material is removing all water at low temperature. Most dehydration methods will work because the proteins are stable,
Basically, the dehydration process causes the water from the wound when the powdered chicken’s feet preparation is applied to join chemically and ionically with the amino acids. This creates an electrical change by which a brief period of nerve bridging takes place. When the preparation is repeatedly applied, this bridging allows the formation of new nerves according to the already present DNA. Due to the breakdown of the preparation in the binding process, there is no immunological rejection.
Nerves are the most difficult of the various tissue components to re-grow. For example, it is much easier to re-grow bone than nerve, not so much because of speed but rather direction. Although it is possible to re-grow nerves without sufficient genetic encoding by using overriding electrical fields, such an alternative will not provide full function and is less desirable. Through electrical interconnectively, the natural means are preferable.
The uncomplicated application procedure was simply to pack the preparation into an open wound, which would then heal from the inside out. There was no infection, and there was full restoration in animals.
Ideally, the preparation should be packed into the open wound as soon as possible after the injury. If this is not possible, an intervention is an option, even to cut open and apply this preparation with the deliberate intent of increasing the body’s ability to repair from the inside.
Potential Role of Folic Acid:
In addition, however, the chicken feet preparation can be eaten as capsules or as mixed with other foods, an area that Robertson did not explore. Although many people would consider eating the feet themselves repugnant, some cultures do this and find this consumption regenerative and helpful.
This beneficial aspect relates to folic acid, an important nutrient involved in DNA synthesis and a many other physiological roles. For example, scientists have shown it to be important in preventing neural tube defects. It is one of the most important and flexible components of humic acids, key substances of soils and compost that have the ability to absorb and work with minerals and other substances. Overall, folic acid plays a critical role in regulation of healing in the body. Because there are small amounts of the nutrient in chicken feet due to soil contact, folic acid was consumed when native tribes ate chicken feet.
It is time for us to open-mindedly revisit this simple, nerve-regenerating therapy. Clearly, it would be relatively easy for scientists to checkout the its potential using existing animal models and assessments for SCI. There is nothing to lose except our belief that solutions for complicated problems must also be complicated.
Curative protein Chicken Feet (extracted from Creative Alternatives....... For A Changing World
By Melvin D. Saunders)
In 1964, when inventor and veterinarian, Dr. Harry Robertson, was heating
something over a burner in his laboratory, he accidentally burned himself. Quickly
looking for something to put on the burn, he plunged his hand into the nearest thing
available -- a gel he had recently formulated from chicken feet as a potential source of
cheap protein. Within 10 minutes, his pain went away, no blisters formed, and his
burn later healed without a scar. After trying the gel on other wounds, both animal
and human, the success of his preparation caused him to market it under the name,
Revital. According to Dr. Robertson, Revital is an antibacterial, antiviral agent that
regenerates nerve and muscle tissue, heals 3rd degree burns without grafting or
leaving a scar, eliminates acne scarring and heals severe bedsores and skin
ulcerations. Dr. Robertson says, "Revital has basically the same nutrients that cells
need to rejuvenate themselves." He doesn't know exactly how it works, but it also
seems to stop infection as well! One medical doctor speculates that it works because
the building blocks of the body (basic amino acids) are applied right at the site of the
problem. Since immature animals do not develop antibodies very well, the immature
cells of young chickens do not have the ability to reject foreign protein. Therefore the
regenerative repair process of damaged and burned cells becomes more likely when
the protein extract that is applied is made from freshly killed, immature chickens.
In one of Robertson's experiments, he removed a one-inch wide chunk of muscle
from 2 cats' thighs, changed the Revital dressing 3 times daily and within 3 weeks
the muscles actually grew back! In another instance, Dr. Robertson used Revital on a
dog that had been dragged under a car for several feet. Most of its thigh muscles had
been ripped away and a large part of the femur and hip joint were exposed. Rather
than put the dog to sleep, Dr. Robertson saturated the wounds with Revital powder
and bandaged the dog up. Within an hour, the dog appeared to be experiencing little
or no pain. When he redressed the wound a few days later, Robertson noticed it was
perfectly clean and was healing nicely, although it smelled horrible (which was not
uncommon when using Revital on wounds). The dog completely recovered and
healthy hair grew over the wound sites. Dr. Robertson admitted that all his training
had taught him that once nerves and muscles were destroyed, they're not supposed to
regenerate anew, but they did in case after case using Revital. In one poodle case,
Dr. Robertson packed Revital over the dog's bony stump where the dog had chewed
its own foot off! He made a cast for it, and afterwards the dog grew a whole new
foot! Another dog was completely healed using Revital after it suffered burns to over 40% of its body. As a researcher, Dr. Robertson always kept before and after
photographs of the healing process in sequence of all such cases to validate his
There were numerous testimonials from people who had successfully treated their
burns, cuts, abrasions, herpes simplex blisters, and bedsores with Revital. One
dentist in Robertson's home town of Salisbury, MD used it on the tooth sockets after
pulling teeth. He said it promoted faster healing, with a minimum of pain and with
virtually no inflammation.
Revital is made by liquifying the 19 amino acids of chicken feet. Actually other
sources of protein from immature, freshly killed mammals could be used as the raw
material, as long as the young cells used were taken before they were capable of
developing antibodies. In dogs, antibodies are capable of being manufactured at 8 to
9 weeks after birth. In cats, it is 12 to 13 weeks after birth, and in humans it is much
later. Manufacturing Revital is simple, and the chicken feet can be obtained as a byproduct
from any chicken processing plant. The chicken feet are ground up in a
regular food grinder (it comes out looking like yellow hamburger meat). The mixture
is washed twice in special baths, dried; then cooked, filtered and recooked. The
resulting pure clear liquid is then reconstituted into either gel or powder for ready use.
It takes about 100 lbs. of chicken feet to make 5 lbs. of Revital. After applying for a
patent on Revital in October of 1973, Robertson was finally granted one in June of
1984. His patent No. 4,455,302 describes the preparation process in much more
In 1977, Dr. Robertson manufactured and sold Revital out of his home laboratory
from behind his veterinarian clinic. He also applied for clearance through the Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) for its use in the treatment of chronic infected
wounds, bed sores, second and third degree burns, various herpes infections, etc.
Naively, he approached the Drug Division and was informed that an amino acid
mixture was not a Drug, but a Device, so he reported to the Device Division. After
about 6 months, the FDA granted him permission to market Revital and approved it
(1978), not as a drug, but as a "Class I Device" (the same classification as ordinary
baby powder). The FDA said Revital could be sold over the counter without a
prescription because it contained nothing harmful to a person's health. Business
began to boom, and word of mouth testimonials pushed sales at the local Medical
Pharmacy to $39,000 per month. Mail orders for jars of Revital powder and tubes of
gel further increased his home business, and Robertson was on his way to achieving
national notoriety after Science Digest ran a 4-page article on him in their July, 1981 issue of their magazine. Unfortunately, natural therapeutic products have always
been hard things to accept in an orthodox, chemical-oriented world, so in 1981 the
FDA arbitrarily reclassified Revital as a drug and notified Robertson Resources Ltd.
that they would have to apply for a New Drug Application, a time-consuming (up to
10 years) and expensive process (sometimes millions of dollars). After hiring
expensive attorneys, Robertson succeeded in getting his former "Device"
classification restored once again. Then in July 1982, the FDA filed a report stating
Revital contained dangerous levels of bacteria and did not meet the sterility
requirements of the FDA as a medical device. Robertson was ordered to stop
marketing the product and take steps to meet the sterility requirements of the agency.
The order also claimed that Revital was misbranded and mislabeled. Robertson's
company was thus put out of business. Like storm troopers, FDA agents burst into
the John L. Deaton Medical Center in Balto. and seized all the Revital product from
the bed-sore chronic care treatment ward of the hospital. Demands for recall of all
Revital from Robertson's customers also went out. On July 19, 1982, a request by
Dr. Julian W. Reed, medical director of the John L. Deaton Medical Center, was
made under the Freedom of Information Act asking the FDA for "the results of their
sterility audit" on the 3 samples of Revital previously seized from the Center on July
7. When the results of the analysis were received, not a single instance of
contamination of any sort was reported on the microbiological quality assurance
control checklist. In order to comply with the FDA order though, Robertson had
several batches of Revital picked at random and sent to 4 independent laboratories to
verify the inexplicable contamination. All 4 labs reported that the product Revital met
the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) requirements for sterility in all cases!
Nevertheless, on Oct. 20, 1982, a warrant for the "arrest in rem" of Revital was
issued and carried out by FDA inspectors and federal marshals. The product was
successfully recalled and banned from the open market in the U.S. The FDA has
since showed no signs of allowing Revital back on the market in this wonderful land
of free enterprise, and Robertson was warned not to try to reestablish Revital as a
salable product again.
Disgruntled and in his late 70's, Dr. Robertson doesn't want to market his
miraculous product safely in another country, but since his patent is about to run out,
perhaps some younger entrepreneur might at least see to it that some Third World
nation benefits from it.
