Record No. 79–14 of scientific-and-trial approbation of December 25, 2014
The research was carried out as part of a long-term research and development program of the Russian Professional Medical Association of Orthodox and Alternative Medicine Specialists on the basis of a contract between the Russian Professional Medical Association of Orthodox and Alternative Medicine Specialists and CJSC NTK Integrative Systems of 15.01.2012.
Comprehensive assessment of influence on the recipient’s functional status (FS) of a revitalizing procedure carried out by the evaluated specialist. During this procedure it is planned to identify the nature of the presented method of influence on human body and to define its possible therapeutic orientation.
Place and date
The experimental tests were performed using the methodological basis of the Russian Professional Medical Association of Orthodox and Alternative Medicine Specialists, Moscow, on December 17, 2014 applying the diagnostic equipment made available by CJSC NTK Integrative Systems.
The approbation was performed by Rozanov Alexey Lvovich, director of CJSC NTK Integrative Systems, Doctor of Engineering Science, corresponding member of the Academy of Medical and Technical Sciences, fellow of the Russian Professional Medical Association of Orthodox and Alternative Medicine Specialists, head of the scientific unit of the Russian Professional Medical Association of Orthodox and Alternative Medicine Specialists competence of which lies in research aimed at objectification of healing powers.
The evaluated specialist – OGUI VIKTOR OLEGOVICH.
Recipient – a woman of 59 with a range of age-related changes and chronic problems.
The approbated health improvement method is the proprietary methodology of bioenergy correction: Traditional Tibetan Massage Using Resonance Bowls as per Tcering Ngodrub Tradition on the basis of health-improving practices applying resonance bowls [9, 10].
Methodological and technology support
Changes in the recipient’s FS were registered applying electropuncture diagnostics as per the Prognosis method (hereinafter referred to as EPD) which registers rather subtle changes in human condition contributing no significant disturbance to the object of research [1, 2, 3].
This diagnostic method and hardware-and-engineering items related to it were developed as a part of the Soviet and later – of the Russian space program in the period of 1980 to 1996. In the process of development the primary scope of the Prognosis method was planned to be its application for express-monitoring of spacemen’s medical status during long-term orbital flights including the planned flight to Mars [4, 5].
Also this EPD modification is widely used in medical practice of the European Union , it is EU certified as a medical product.
The basic prerequisites for use of the Prognosis EPD for objectification of comprehensive changes in human body under the influence of various factors (including rather “subtle” ones) are as follows:
The apparatus Prognosis-Mini made in Russia was used as measuring means for EPD (CJSC NTK Integrative Systems) functioning in the software environment Prognos-M, version 6.1.
In order to achieve greater comprehensive level of approbation remote monitoring of cardiac rhythm variability change (CRV) was made for the recipient and the evaluated specialist together with the analysis of changes in acupuncture channels (hereinafter AC). This type of diagnostic testing is a recognized method registering changes in human FS under the influence of various factors , among others it is widely used in occupational physiology . On the one hand such additional measurements were performed to have a continuous assessment of the nature of the work stress on the evaluated specialist, on the other hand, the influence of various stages of the correction process on the recipient’s adaptive resources and regulatory potentialities was analyzed. Thirdly, the simultaneous examination of such parallel measurements gives an opportunity to analyze the level of synergism between the specialist and his patient. Here synergism is understood as the level of interdependence of changes of the test participants’ FS. Thus an attempt was made for an objective evaluation of the level of “partnership” which took place between them.
In order to examine CRV innovative technical facilities made by BM innovations GmbH (made in Germany) and specially configured software of CJSC NTK Integrative Systems (Module of Variational Pulsometry which forms part of the Flexible Automated Medical System for Complex Preventive Measures, version1.01 – 2013) were used.
The design of the experimental tests was as follows
The design of the experimental tests was as follows. Parallel monitoring of CRV parameters of the participants was made throughout the duration of the tests. Besides in order to have a more meaningful data array for analysis of the cardiac rhythm changes during the health-improving session the pulse parameters were registered not only during the health-improving procedure but also during significant periods before and after the procedure. During CRV monitoring the events which caused changes in the health-improving tactics were marked with prefix “P”. General changes of the conditions of the test were marked with prefix “M”. The system events during the measurement process were marked with “S”. See the distinctive stages of approbation in table 1.
Table 1. The Main “Events” Showing an Apparent “Synergism” between the Test Participants
As already mentioned above, the dynamic analysis of electrophysical properties of AP was carried out for a comprehensive assessment of changes in the tests participants’ bodies. Namely, first, a background (static) assessment of AC state was made using the EPD procedure Prognosis. Then the examined person (recipient or specialist) was offered to do a modified breathing Stange’s test as a standard physiological stress. After that activeness of AC was registered again. This methodological approach enables us to define the state of adaptive resources of the examined person’s AC system as well as to find AC with alleged energoinformational exchange imbalance. One more EPD procedure was carried out immediately after the end of the health-improving session. Besides approximately 15 minutes after the end of the session an additional EPD procedure was carried out for the recipient. It was done for evaluation of the “late” results of the health-improving influence. During EPD the tests participants were in the sitting position.
The results of the recipient’s static diagnostics
The results of the recipient’s static diagnostics are shown in Table 2 and Fig. 1. In accordance with such data the recipient’s AC distribution looks rather well-balanced. Only AC of the Large Intestine is a little beyond the allowable variation (red lines on the diagram of Fig. 1). The overwhelming majority of the rest of measured values is within the “ideal balance” (within the green lines on the diagram of Fig. 1).
Table 2 Initial Values of the Recipient’s AC Activeness
It should be mentioned that if the abnormality value exceeds 2 it is necessary to correct such AC. If the relative value of abnormality is lesser than 2 correction of such AC is, strictly speaking, unnecessary. As we see in Table 2 there are no “problematic” AC (those which need correction).
Dynamic diagnostics. The results of dynamic diagnostics also show no problems in the recipient’s energoinformational exchange of the AC system. We may assume that there are some problems only in the AC of the Large Intestine which shows signs of “the 1st degree block” when only one branch of the analyzed meridian is adynamic.
Thus, integrally the initial recipient’s FS from the point of view of EPD may be characterized as “norm” which requires no correction. At the same time the way the body reacted to the test load makes us arrive at the conclusion that the recipient possesses significant adaptive resources as well.
The main values of the initial CRV State of the recipient
The main values of the initial CRV State of the recipient are shown in Table 3. One can see that initially no significant problems in regulation of the recipient’s cardiac rhythm were found. Here it may just be noted that there is a rather increased value of the regulatory systems tension index (TI), i.e. there is some predomination of the excitative processes in the recipient’s body (sympathicotonia).
Table 3. Assessment of the Main Values of CRV at the Beginning of the Session
This value characterizes activity of sympatic regulation mechanism and the state of the central contour of regulation. Normally TI ranges from 80 to 150 common units. At the same time TI is extremely susceptible to increase of the sympathetic tone. A small load (physical or emotional) causes TI rise 1.5–2 times. In case of significant loads it may increase 5–10 times.
