Even though there are no direct scientific evidence for complementary therapies, in this study we aim to investigate the effects of a therapeutic consciousness field named Fara-darmani by its founder, Mohammad Ali Taheri, on common wheat Triticum aestivum L. var Star (sensitive cultivar) under salt stress. Salt stress induction was examined in the leaves of these plants in untreated controls conditions as well as under the influence of aforementioned consciousness field. It is claimed that as a result of this consciousness field, connection between the constitutive consciousness of the system under study and its main constitutive (cosmic consciousness) status is established and the required modification and repair occurs in a scanning process. Results of the present study reveals that under the influence of the Fara-darmani consciousness field, the contents of total Chlorophyll as well as the a and b forms were elevated. Additionally, hydrogen peroxide and the activity of antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase and polyphenol oxidase increased 220% and 168%, respectively under salinity. On the contrary, malondialdehyde content and activity of peroxidase were decreased at 12.5% and 34% rates, respectively. These results suggest that under salinity stress, prominence of superoxide dismutase and peroxidase activity play an active role in scavenging the elevated reactive oxygen species induced by salt stress in this cultivar. This suggests that Fara-darmani connection increases this sensitive cultivar's resistance to salinity by increasing the content of hydrogen peroxide transduced signalling. We hypothesize that hydrogen peroxide signaling, in turn, may be responsible for the activation of transcription factors associated with superoxide dismutase and polyphenol oxidase activity, consequently declining lipid peroxidation under salt stress. In conclusion, according to the present study, Fara-darmani connection, as a consciousness field, alleviates the salt-induced decrease in chlorophyll content and can ameliorate the negative effects of salinity stress.
