Our team represents the Department of Rehabilitation and Information Medicine of the International University of Fundamental Studies; we carry out research and development in the field of human energy and information medicine for prevention and treatment of a wide range of diseases, we develop special programs to activate the adaptive potential of a child’s entire body which forms the foundation of their physical, mental and intellectual health.
The issue of human health has always been a top priority in all societies. The weakening of human immunity, the expansion of known diseases and the emergence of new ones – all these problems are now part of our reality.
Modern orthodox medical approaches fail to solve these problems. The modern approach treats diseases but cannot eliminate their cause. The cause remains and the disease evolves to a chronic stage. Whereas, ancient traditional medicines use methods of disease treatment aimed at eliminating the source of disease they did not have any scientific explanation.
The development of the Energy-Information theory of heredity, variability and morphogenesis in biology (S. I. Repiev, V. N. Barulin, E. I. Borovkov and M. V. Petrova) has provided information healing methods with scientific justification. In the framework of this theory, the main sources of diseases are viewed as disorders of the energy-information program of human body or as the distortions of the human energy field structures.
Removing the negative programming that causes the disease, reactivation of the health information program, biofield modification and filling the weakened organism with energy are scientifically proven effective methods of treatment.
The human being is an extremely complex self-regulatory and self-restoring system that maintains constant mass, energy and information exchange with the environment. A model of human being is considered to be an oscillating system with multiple interconnections and degrees of freedom. Every subtle-matter body is, in turn, an oscillating system with its own frequency, amplitude and phase characteristics that are constantly changing. Because of their complex interrelationships we can’t consider a human being only as a combination of particular tissues, organs and systems. Therefore, a disease of a certain organ is a sign of a disease affecting the entire body.
Our unique healing methods include optimising functions of all body systems and the formation of a health program in the patient’s mind, as well as oscillation frequency normalization of organs and systems and the correction of the energetic and informational program of health. Our method is based on the normalization of the person’s information matrix without any drugs. Extensive research, conducted in collaboration with representatives of traditional medicine, has proved that our methods are highly efficient and safe.
We influence the regulatory mechanisms of the body on all levels: intercellular, intracellular and humoral. This method eliminates the cause of the disease and, consequently, activates the latent potential of human (restores the energy potential of the cells, normalizes homeostasis, and strengthen the immunity). Not only physical, but also moral, mental and spiritual condition of the person is being improved.
Since 1994, we paid particular attention to the problem of diseases that cannot be cured by orthodox medicine (there are no proven publications). We have developed a method of treatment and rehabilitation of children suffering from cerebral palsy and central nervous system (CNS) disorders.
The research has been conducted in cooperation with Saint-Petersburg medical institutions in a framework of the Russian-American project named “Healers’ Performance Evaluation”. We have conducted a course of treatment on a background of planned drug treatment at in-patient facilities. We provide a course of treatment to 26 children (aged 6 months to 10 years) with a most severe clinical course of cerebral palsy. The work included eliminating the cause of the disease, massaging reflex areas and activating the energetic potential of the child.
As a result of this course, they recorded significant clinical, electrophysiological and bioenergetic positive momentum for all children, which was proven by the evaluation on a modified Bortfeld-Varman scale, and by neurophysiological indicators: electroencephalogram, echoencephalogram, rheoencephalogram and elecroacupuncture diagnostics of R. Voll.
No negative reactions of the patients have been recorded during the treatment.
The method that we used allows to eliminate the cause of the disease and to activate the latent potential of the body. Treatment results in the improvement of brain blood circulation, psycho-emotional state of the children, their psychoverbal development, visual and hearing concentration; their sleep pattern is normalized, their intellect is improved, as well as all the motor functions, and the process of physical healing is activated. Further, the children are also motivated to develop their own abilities.
The results achieved through the treatment course are sustainable and the childrens conditions continue to improve for the following 6 months (and longer, proved by instrumental examinations).
This developed method of treatment for children with cerebral palsy and CNS disorders is fairly new, and by its effectiveness, sustainability of results and lack of side effect makes it unrivaled in the alternative medicine practice. The results of our research made in the framework of the “Healers’ Performance Evaluation” project have been published by the Monterey Institute for the Study of Alternative Healing Arts (California, US) in the “MISAHA Newsletters” (3855 Via Nona Maria, Ste. 102-C, Carmel, CA 93923, США): no. 6 (1994), no. 9-11(1995), no. 12-13, no. 14-15 (1996), no. 16-17, no. 18-19 (1997), no. 20-21, no. 22-23 (1998).
Using the developed procedures many times, our team treated cardiovascular disease, hypertension, postinfarction and postapoplectic conditions in the clinics of Saint-Petersburg.
Since this treatment method eliminates the cause of the disease and positively influences the entire body, not only the main problem is rectified , but also accompanying diseases symptoms disappear, arterial pressure, heat circulation, motor activity and other indicators are normalized.
Treatment results are very sustainable. A random follow-up of the gravest patients was conducted 1 year and 3 years after the treatment. The patients stopped taking any drugs and the standard of life of all of the patients had increased. The results of this work have been highly appreciated by St. Petersburg cardiologists.
Another area of development, where the elaboration of the treatment methods has not yet been completed, however promising results have already been achieved, is treatment of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.
The chronic fatigue syndrome is a state of the human body characterized by complete physical, mental and emotional exhaustion. Unlike depression, when a person has temporary periods of elation and decline, the chronic fatigue syndrome is diagnosed when the organism has been completely exhausted, even emotionally.
Chronic fatigue results from prolonged stress that exhaust the body, consequently, the functions of the autonomic nervous system, as well as the endocrine and the immune systems, are disturbed, which leads to pathologic fatigue (extreme for the adaptive reserves of the body).
This condition is rather difficult to diagnose, as the chronic fatigue syndrome disguises itself as other diseases. That is why doctors believe that such diagnosis must be backed by the combination of the two major and the eight so-called minor symptoms.
Typically, the main diagnostic character of the disease is a constant feeling of fatigue that lasts for more than 6 months, while the person is healthy. The symptoms of the condition are not immediately evident. Most often, the patients start an influenza-type fever, with a sore throat, a headache and possibly enlarged lymph nodes. Then, muscle pain develops very soon, as well as joint pain and the patients feel exhausted after physical effort. Sleep, intellect and memory disorders and, sometimes, altered states of consciousness indicate the chronic fatigue syndrome, as well.
Chronic fatigue syndrome is caused by a combination of various factors which, separately, would not result in a disease. They are: constant stress, nervous tension, life failures and tragedies, feeling of fear, conflicts and disputes, insufficient sleep and nutrition, deficit of important microelements and vitamins, autoimmune and infectious diseases.
That is why it is possible to cure the person only through restoration of their energy potential, their energy-informational structure, and through elimination of the cause of the disease at the informational level. Adding supplementary measures at the physical level (normalization of the sleep and nutrition regimes, administration of vitamins, teaching the person some methods for self-regulation, and gradual increase of the motor activity) allows the patient to feel the fullness of life in a short time.
The key features of our method are the following:
1. Non-invasive therapy.
2. Elimination of the cause of the disease, which allows activating the regulatory mechanisms (neurologic, immune, hormonal, etc.)
3. Sustainable treatment results and positive dynamics after the end of the treatment course.
4. Reformation of the personal qualities of the patient.
5. No negative side effects.
For many years we have organized practical self-regulation seminars where we teach to use concentration of the consciousness to manage energy flows and eliminating negative interventions. In the course of training, participants explore the laws of interaction with nature, develop practical skills, learn how to assess the situation correctly and to make right decisions. This helps them to further maintain their psycho-emotional and physical state at a high level, to deal without drugs or to reduce their consumption considerably. The self-regulation methods that we have elaborated are accessible to everyone regardless of their age. They are easy to learn and are highly effective.
A particular area of our department research is a program aimed to activate the adaptive potential of the children’s body as the foundation for their physical, mental and intellectual health.
Our team treats health issues in both directions. Using the methods of informational medicine, we can eliminate the cause of the disease and restore the damaged energy fields of the person. However, due to integrity of the energy fields and the physical body, according to the feedback principle, the comprehensive influence on the person’s physical body entails the reconstruction of its energy fields, and, consequently, rehabilitation of the person’s health.
Our team specializes particularly in rehabilitation and recovery of children aged usually between 0 and 3 years. We have designed special programs for comprehensive development both healthy children and children with various health problems, as well as children suffering from central nervous systems and brain disorders.
The purpose of our work is to help such children.
The work with children is based on the following key principles:
● to start working with a child from early age.
● to assure a maximum possible amount of movements for the child depending on its age and health condition. Any movement stimulates the brain functioning, and, due to the feedback principle, it results in the improvement of motor skills. Working with early aged children, we use the entire complex of reflexes; for children with motor disorders we use passive movements and provide facilitating conditions.
● It is important to employ all the possible means of information perception. This develops the compensatory mechanisms and encourages the formation of new neural connections.
● We apply both classical and oriental massage techniques, and acupuncture massage of reflex nodes, in order to activate energy channels.
● To decrease muscle hypertonia we use stretchings and static exercises, as they help to relax muscles, accelerate blood circulation and increase the joint range of motions.
● A series of dynamic exercises strengthens the muscles and ligaments of child and prevents injuries.
● The programs include exercises in water which decrease the stress load from atmospheric pressure and allow a child, even a newborn baby, to move in a wider range than in the air.
● Teaching the child hypoxic breathing when diving stimulates the development of brain divisions thus eliminating numerous pathologies.
● Constant shift of temperature regimes helps conditioning the child to cold and increases the non-specific resistance of the child’s organism.
This method may be equally used in rehabilitation and adaptation of children with health problems, providing them a chance to compensate the health problems fully or partially and also in the course of work with healthy children who shows not only faster physical development than their peers, but also surpass them in intellectual development.
One important factor in early child development is that these sets of comprehensive rehabilitation exercises allow these children to make significant progress in sport. Since a need for motor activity is formed. Later, when children go into sports, they have a powerful motivation, simply because they enjoy movement.
The unique techniques described above have been included in the Russian “National Health Preservation” program.

Radiation sterilization of premade medicines is wide spread in many developed nations. However, the overwhelming majority of authors of papers on the applicability of the radiation treatment of medicines for sterilization assume that the ionizing radiation that eliminates the microflora also breaks down the principal agent of the medicine to a certain extent and, consequently, decreases the efficiency of the drug. In most cases, this is the reality. That is why researchers aim their efforts at limiting the effect of the ionizing radiation on the drug, as they see it as negative. It is interesting to note that one issue is never covered by such papers: that of the chance that radiolysis might result in amplifying the known or in highlighting the yet unknown pharmaceutical properties of the drug.
Such an approach may be justifiable in the framework of a study of synthetic drugs with just a few components. Nevertheless, natural drugs are well known to affect the body through a combined action of the substances that they contain. Besides, quite often this synergy of therapeutic action proves to be considerable. These were the ideas that defined our strategy in developing the technology for manufacturing Vitamedin-M medicine based on natural bee honey.
In our research, we relied on the theory of biological activity of some of the products of radiolysis of organic compounds, elaborated by A. M. Kuzin, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 30 years ago . He claimed that peroxides, kinones, keto-aldehydes and some other compounds formed in the course of radiolysis may have a significant influence on such vital processes and DNA synthesis, change in the permeability of cell membranes, activity of membrane-related ferments etc. His book Radiotoxins describes both the depressive and the activating effects on vital functions of biological entities as the result of injection of radiotoxins in various concentrations. Apparently, the stimulation of the human body by these compounds underlies the effect of small doses of radiation on the nonspecific immunity system, which was discovered through radanotherapy and reinfusion of small quantities of autoblood exposed to X-radiation outside of the body .
Taking into account these considerations, we compared the therapeutic activity of the original substance of Vitamedin-M which has only undergone the primary technological processing stages and the end product, Vitamedin-M medicine treated with ionizing radiation.
The experiment showed that radiation treatment for sterilization of the end product does not weaken the medicinal effect of the drug, on the contrary, it amplifies its hepatoprotective and virustatic properties.
Model tests on mice (hexenalum anesthesia and poisoning with carbon tetrachloride) allowed to determine that the hepatoprotective activity of the drug is proportionate to the absorbed ionizing radiation.
When the antiviral activity of Vitamedin-M (prevention treatment against the lethal mice flu) was tested, the protection index of the medicine treated with radiation showed to be almost twice higher than that of the non-treated substance.
Vitamedin-M treated with radiation showed antiviral properties in the experiments of reproduction of herpes virus in vitro, while the untreated drug did not. Moreover, the virustatic activity of the drug treated with radiation was comparable with the same parameter for the most popular foreign anti-herpes drug Ancyclovir.
The above results definitely prove that radiation treatment of Vitamedin-M serves not only as sterilization method but also as a stage of radiation-chemical synthesis of the drug.
The research brought about a new technology for manufacturing of Vitamedin-M from natural bee honey through radiation-chemical synthesis. The medicine has been clinically tested and has been certified for production and use in medicine as antiviral drug that activates antitoxic activity of the liver [2, 3].
Given that natural medicines find an ever increasing use in clinical practice, we can hope that the use of ionizing radiation in the manufacturing of drug forms will allow not only to produce a sterilized version of these medicines but also to expand the range of their therapeutic action.

For a moment, let’s look past the obvious culprits – vending machines in
every work place replete with racks of sugary sodas, fried chips and candy bars
Binge watching Netflix, playing Bejeweled and Words with Friends on your iPhone while at work make the likelihood of moving from Your cubicle, desk or office something of a mission impossible.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is ground zero for obesity, heart disease, stroke and diabetes. You may say, “Raven, your being overly dramatic!” But am I?
Americans work harder than anyone else in the industrialized world. We work an average of 34.4 hours a week, longer than any of our counterparts in the world’s largest economies. Many work even longer. Adults employed full time report working an average of 47 hours per week, which equates to a full six day work week, according to Gallup. Jul 9, 2015
47 hours per week at 52 weeks in a year – that’s, 2,444 hours at work per year not counting vacations. That’s an astonishing amount of time spent sitting around in a typical office job
Now let’s examine vacations
Nearly four in 10 workers report logging 50+ hours on the job.
Americans are awarded fewer vacation days than most all of their peers worldwide — and they often neglect to take all the time they are given. U.S. workers get about 15 days off yet took advantage of only 14 days according to a 2014 Expedia.com survey. Europeans are given an average of 28 days, while workers in the Asia-Pacific receive 19, though they also don’t typically use them all. Money/cnn.com July 9, 2015
This obsessive work schedule often leads to many adverse consequences, such as work related stress, worry, frustration with fellow co–workers, and, not surprisingly – heart attacks.
The labor force has changed dramatically over the last 50 years. During that time,
we have seen the spiraling decline of physical activity in the work place. About half of private-industry jobs in the United States involved some kind of physical activity – things such as farming, mining, construction and manufacturing. In 1960 moderate physical activity accounted for 50 percent of the labor market. Today it has plummeted to just 20 percent
The remaining 80 percent of jobs, are sedentary or require only light activity such as education, administration, retail, tech and wholesale distribution
The lack of physical activity (exercise) combined with sitting at the desk even while at lunch lunch has led to Americans burn 120 to 140 fewer calories a day than they did 50 years ago. 120 to 140 calories a day doesn’t sound like much, but multiply that times 5 days and you get 650 calories a week. Multiply that times 52 weeks in a year and you get 33,800 calories. There are 3500 calories in a pound, that equals to nearly 9.6 pounds gained per year.
Moving Less + Decreased Physical Activity + Poor Eating = OBESITY ALERT!!!
The lack of production (lost productivity) resulting from health issues took a toll on American business to the tune of $84 billion last year, according to a new report from Gallup-Healthways. The main culprits associated with this dearth in productiveness are obesity/weight issues, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, asthma, depression, neck/back/leg pain, cancer, diabetes and heart attack. All of these factors were considered chronic health conditions also linked with absenteeism. To the discerning eye, there is clearly a causal link between an individual’s state of health/wellness and their productivity
“As employers increasingly engage in improving the health of their workers, substantial potential savings remain on the table from getting more employees to work each day as their health improves over time,” the researchers wrote in WELLNESS, May 7, 2013
The findings are based on the results of 94,000 interviews conducted through 2012, among U.S. adults working 30 or more hours a week. The interviews included questions such as, “During the past 30 days, for about how many days did poor health keep you from doing your usual activities?”
Of all the people surveyed, approximately 77 percent were either overweight, obese, or had at least one chronic health condition – WELLNESS, May 7, 2013
The facts are both overwhelming and alarming. Lack of exercise and improper eating habits are literally killing us. We are compromising the very companies we work for in the pursuit of increased productivity by continuing this pattern of self-destruction.
What can forward-thinking companies do in efforts to benefit their employees’ long-term wellness while simultaneously enjoying increased productivity from a healthier workforce?
Institute a Wellness Plan
- Hire a Professional, such as a certified/accredited personal trainer to come in and talk to the employees about the benefits of exercise. Have them demonstrate the exercises in the company gym or work out center. Show them that a slimmer, trimmer employee will live a happier, healthier life.
- Bring in a Nutritionist to show the employees the benefits of having a well-balanced meal. Maybe even have a nutritionist, or dietician work with the staff to come up with more nutrient dense meals in the work place cafeteria that will focus on keeping the fat off and seeking a higher protein, more nutritious alternative.

The traumatizing psychological influence of the various adverse factors on the human mental activity results in stress and mental pressure. That is why the skill of neutralizing this negative influence and of adjusting one’s mental state deliberately, when one wants it, has become particularly valuable.
A group of researchers from Saint-Petersburg lead by V. V. Tonkov have spent for 15 years applying the method of observation of the psychophysiological processes predominantly in the state of extended consciousness to discover the patterns related to the functioning of the human body and psyche.
On the scale of the level of agitation, all material (including human body) and thin-matter media are in two states: either of increased informativity, or of increased concentration of energy, depending on their proportion.
The more the person knows and the more information they keep in their memory, the less energy they have in proportion to the total concentration of energy. The more formalized and specific methods we use in the psychological and psychotherapeutic practice, the less efficient and the more dangerous they are, both for the patient and the psychotherapist or counsellor.
Transbiosensorial psychotechnology, based on biosensorial psychology, is the science of the subtle perception of the environment by the human being, of the ways to develop this type of perception and of the influence that humans exercise over the environment through their natural capacities. The main principle of transbiosensorial psychotechnology is the stimulation of the creative activity and the natural investigatory approach to the understanding of the psychic and physiological phenomena through extended consciousness.
The main objective of transbiosensorial psychotechnology is the restoration of the integrity of the human body and psyche and, consequently, finding the solution to a range of physiological problems and recovery of the body functions.
The aim of this paper is to show the potential of biosensorial psychology based on the stimulation of artistic activity whose main aim is to provide everyone with the additional tools for self-knowledge, self-discovery and, consequently, for recovery of the psychic, physical and mental health.
The skill of managing one’s mind and one’s relations with other people enables a pointed positive influence on the viability of the body and its protection from mental stresses.

Dear members of the Bureau and members of the international congress !
Ladies and Gentlemen!
Human wisdom suggests: to assess the happy life it is important to consider not only how many years a person has lived, but, most importantly, how many years have made in this life years with good quality of life (screen. 2).
I give this picture not to remind the audience about the historical significance and architectural merits of St. Petersburg (where we are always happy to meet you). Drawbridges are a symbol of that factors of health and disease risk existing in the world civilization, problems of ecological safety and unmet subsistence needs –they are on one side, and measures of active preventive health conservation, increase in life expectancy and optimal living conditions – are on another shore. A connecting bridge, ensuring the unity and the ability to implement socially -oriented state policy priority of health and ideological activities, protection of the rights and well-being, is to optimize the quality of life of the population as the main criterion for the effectiveness of social and environmental programs.
I , as a public health and health professional, am particularly pleased to present here at the European headquarters of the United Nations Organization (UNO Headquarters), an example of use of the main criteria for health -related quality of life – HRQOL.
We believe that the methodological basis for the prevention included in the Concept of health- medicine and quality of life , as one of the leading methods for assessing their effectiveness, needs to be updated with the definition of health indicators that can be measured, establishing reference standards , determining the risk groups. (Screen 3).
A person has a right for health, a right for a healthy environment, a right for affordable and quality healthcare. Therefore, health should not be seen as a result, but as a basis for the development of health state policy.
However, even the definition of the World Health Organization (even in 1948): «Health is the complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease», does not contain the active preventive directive and there is no methodological basis for a complete understanding of the quality of life , so we propose to add that «Health is a condition that allows the optimal interaction with the environment, quality of life and the safe implementation of the basic kinds of life, with full physical, psychological and social functioning of human». Integrative and systemic approach to assessing the health and quality of life suggests that the body is a functioning biological system in time. Therefore , health promotion and improved quality of life are the functional concepts and it is necessary to assess their dynamics and stages of life. It should be taken into account that the body’s ability to adapt is a measure of independence from the device and changing conditions of internal and external environment . Only on this basis can be developed the concept of Health promotion, as a health- medicine and the concept of a healthy lifestyle.
Changing the biomedical model of health and illness and biopsychosocial model of health has led to the need to consider the subjective opinion of the person about his well-being and health. He introduced concept does not oppose health-active prevention of high-quality curative medicine. The unifying integrative criterion for health prevention and for treatment and rehabilitation programs is a criterion of the quality of life, testifying to the subjective evaluation of a man of his status as a consumer of health services. The study of quality of life is generally accepted in international practice , a highly sensitive and cost-effective method of assessment of the relative health . The concept , based on the principles of this methodology allows the most important principle of the treatment process : not to treat the disease , but the patient , to take into account the peculiarities of his way of life.
According to the WHO definition of “Quality of life is the perception of individuals of their position in life in the context of the values of the environment in which they live , in close connection with their goals , expectations , standards and concerns ” (Screen. 4). The most often the following meaning is given to the quality of life in Russia: “Quality of Life is an integral characteristic of the physical, psychological, emotional and social functioning of a person based on his subjective perception.” However, the existing quality of life characteristics do not sufficiently reflect the interests and human rights as a consumer of health services, taking into account the peculiarities of its social and hygienic operation and its lifestyle in certain socio-economic conditions and the environment that has an impact on his health in the amount of more than 75.0%.
Therefore, from our point of view, we have ntroduced the concept of “quality of life related to health that is an integral , subjective satisfaction characteristic of life conditions , habitat and adaptive abilities of the body , providing physical, psychological and social well-being ” (Screen. 5).
Up to nowerdays there are various criteria for measuring quality of life. UN experts have developed a generalized structure of the components of quality of life , including health, education, social security , rights and the human condition (Screen. 6). HDI ( Human Development Index ) was developed as an ” expansion of human capabilities for a long and healthy life.” WHO coined the medical practice standardized index (QOL-Index). It reflects the quality of life in the aspects such as: overall physical activity , psychological condition , the patient’s independence in daily life , health , the availability of support from other people , the possibility of restoring full life . A composite index is the “quality of life index .” So far , despite the international practice , the problem of the quality of life study remains underestimated.
Possible indicators of quality of life as a criterion for the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions were limited in clinical trials . The main problem is the lack of common technical approaches , not to compare the scientific and practical studies in different countries and regions .
We (Screen. 7) have developed and tested a universal multidimensional questionnaire study of quality of life as an integrated criterion of health assessments and the effectiveness of medical and preventive, treatment and rehabilitation, and environmental programs. 15 kinds of scales on the functioning of the signs and symptoms gradations are presented in the structure of the proposed questionnaire to produce quantitative and qualitative indicators. The model scales and the total number of measurements of features were developed for the assessment of quality of life. The study determined the level of informative significance scales by type of operation and group features. The method of calculation and evaluation of the outcomes of quality of life and health allows to modify presented in the questionnaire scale and gradation attributes given the specificity of the studied contingent (children, working-age population, the elderly, people with disabilities, migrants and others) and the clinical condition of the patient (including prenosological states specific symptoms, painful manifestations characteristic for different nosologic forms of diseases). In this case both general and specific marker of the formation of pathology in the early stages may serve as indicators of structural and functional changes in various systems of the body that can be measured and assessed in dynamics. Subjective data ( in the Quality of Life Research ) in addition to objective indicators to assess the dynamics of clinical and functional conditions ( changes) is based on screening and diagnostic programs. Therefore, it is advisable to develop individual programs of medical prophylactic and therapeutic effects of rehabilitation to improve the quality of life of patients .
We have developed a special research program “Quality of life as a criterion for assessing the health and effectiveness of health care systems to ensure ecological, sanitary and epidemiological safety.” The results of the study among urban residents of St. Petersburg (Screen. 8) made possible to determine the priority of life indicators and characteristics of quality of life ( social and hygienic operation , the socio – economic well-being , the level of hygiene and environmental well-being of the community ) .we have Identified 3 risk groups of urban residents on the basic health and social and hygienic characteristics of life ( the optimal conditions , the relative and absolute risk).
According to the generalized indicator of socio-hygienic operation (Screen. 9) urban residents can be attributed to the relative risk (73 points). In this set, taking into account the type of family only 44% of urban households can be attributed to the healthy, and 56% of residents are in different groups of risk. These single-parent families, divorced, single, and others. up to 12% of workers speak about the impact of adverse factors of work, and for 7% of the work performed does not correspond to a state of health. The proportion of completely satisfied with living conditions of the total number surveyed for economic and household activities (Group optimal conditions) is only 24%. More than half of residents (69%) are satisfied with the regime and not enough food quality (risk group).According to their subjective estimations, women are more demanding in the assessment of the socio – hygienic operation and although they have objectively more favorable characteristics of quality of life that according to their subjective indicators, they evaluate worse.There is a high proportion ( 82 % ) of persons who wish to improve their socio – economic status ( overall quality of life – 67 points , the relative risk ) . With women, these figures are much worse. Important informative measure of quality of life is social and psychological well-being in the workplace and at home ( 72 points) , and 27 % of residents have noted the need for psychological correction . This recreational activity in order to restore physical strength and to promote health is carried out regularly or occasionally only by 66 % of urban residents .
On the basis of preclinical subjective diagnosis and screening questionnaire we assessed the presence and dynamics of changes in the severity of symptoms and early clinical manifestations that characterize the quality, timeliness and effectiveness of preventive and therapeutic measures. The results indicate the presence of symptoms and expressed prenosological states in such nosologic forms of diseases such as diseases of the musculoskeletal system (56%), digestive system (57%), circulatory system (40%), and others.
In the transition from a healthy state to disease, the quality of life is deteriorating mainly due to the physical component (symptoms, pain, feeling of general health). Overall health is most negatively evaluated in the presence of concomitant chronic diseases. General health indicators are related to the degree of exposure to the life factors such as: satisfaction with living conditions; the type and conditions of employment; quality of food; the level of health awareness and prevention activities. On a scale of subjective health assessments all urban residents evaluate on average about 70%.
The migrants (mostly younger ) have very unfavorable indicators of the quality of life in almost all the characteristics of social and hygienic operation ( group relative and absolute risk ) , socio-economic ( absolute risk ) , social and psychological state (up 30.0 % absolute risk group ) , the level of medical awareness , preventive and medical- social activity ( to 36.3 % – an absolute risk group) .
Women are at risk to a greater extent than men , on grounds such as : type of family , family environment , socio – economic status , the quality of food , conditions and nature of the professional activity .
More important ranking places are occupied by socio-economic, psychological and hygienic problem indicators in the formation of the quality of life related to health. Total index of quality of life was 65 points, with a strong correlation found between indicators of social and hygienic operation, socio-economic status, physical functioning and health. Evidence suggests that a group of healthy urban population is 30%, relative risk group is 54%, and the absolute risk group (with various forms of chronic diseases) is 16%. However, the analysis of additional data on the presence of the expressed prenosological conditions , signs and symptoms indicates the projected increase in the absolute risk especially in diseases of the circulatory system , respiratory diseases and diseases of the musculoskeletal system .
Successfully , reliably and objectively is used the complex method of evaluating the quality of life in the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment and rehabilitation (Screen. 10) with the analysis of the dynamics of species in the functioning of the rehabilitation stage in forecasting distant treatment results in the post-hospital stage (Screen. 11).
The results of the analysis of quality of life with personalized state monitoring methods ( Screen 12) allow to optimize and correct some types of life , management of employment (especially for people with disabilities or at risk ) .
Studies suggest that the process of studying and optimizing the quality of life necessitates the use of a process approach (Screen. 13) with the definition of the governing bodies, the presence of regulatory support, the definition of objects, identification of life risk factors, habitat forming diseases, clinical and functional states, identifying rank the importance of risk factors and optimizing the role of participants in the process of correction of living conditions and quality of life.
Thus, the proposed conceptual model (Screen. 14 ) allows not only to assess the effectiveness of implementation of social , health, environmental programs and support systems , but can also be used for monitoring of clinical and functional conditions of different population groups ( patients and healthy ) , in the extreme situations ( natural and manmade ) , during the examination of new methods of treatment and prevention , in the economic rationale for regional projects (Screen. 15).
