       In order to study integration mechanisms within intersystem neurophysiologic interactions in clinical practice, we have developed and carried out an integrated approach which includes an evaluation of the state of the central and autonomic nervous systems, the immunologic, biochemical and hormonal homeostasis as well as the two components of the brain’s super slow physiological potential (SSPP): static (the omega potential) and dynamic (the super slow oscillation of potentials). Based on the results of the clinical-neurophysiologic comparison, we chose a list of employed SSPP characteristics within the millivolt range. With this, the basic parameter turned out to be the value of the initial omega-potential (OP), which then determined the level of alertness [2, 3, 10, 14].

       The synthesis of our experiences in using these techniques within different areas of medicine in the experiment to date, in order to provide proof of the connection between the OP dynamics of the surface of the patient’s head and body along with homeostatic and regulatory mechanisms, serve as the base for our study of the SSPP and the intersystem interaction mechanisms in psychotherapeutic practice.

 

       In accordance with modern concepts, the magnitude of the omega-potential in the forehead (or vertex) to thenar wrist deflection is indicative of the degree of coordination between inter-organ or inter-system neurohumoral interactions, with the CNS (Central Nervous System) taking the lead regulatory role.

      For the purpose of demonstrating the connection between omega-potential dynamics and the regulatory sanogenetic mechanisms of a functional ANS (Autonomic Nervous System), we have completed a study of the change occurring in the brain’s omega-potential over the course of cosmoenergy sessions in patients suffering from neurotic disorders.

       Ninety five patients with neurotic disorders (41 men and 54 women), average age 41.2 ± 5.7 years old, were involved in the clinical-psychological study. The determination of the patients’ clinical-psychological status was made by means of the “Questionnaire for Neurotic and Nervous Disorders” (ONR), modified to the style of the BVNK-300 Questionnaire [8]. All patients examined were then diagnosed with “stress-related and somatoform neurotic disorders” (F-40 – F-48).  The individual types of NDs were determined according to the results of complex clinical-psychological diagnostics. The different ND types were based on the individual typological characteristic and were then used to divide the ND patients into the following sub-groups: anxiety or phobia-type disorders – F40 (105 patients), dissociative (conversion) –type disorders – F44 (106 patients) and obsessive compulsive-type disorders – F42 (93 patients).

       The anxiety or phobia-type disorders were, as a general rule, present in individuals with a psychostenic constitution, who are prone to suspiciousness, anxiety, emotionality, shyness and timidity. When these patients came under the influence of stress-inducing or psychotraumatic factors, they developed compulsive fears and anxieties which would occur during certain types of situations and are usually accompanied by ANS dysfunction.

       The more characteristic sign of dissociative (conversion) disorders was partial or total loss of normal integration between past memory recall and either a sense of identity and immediate sensation or body motion control. This closely correlated with the time of traumatic events, insolvable or unbearable problems or defective relationships.

      Types of Neurotic Disorders stemming from reaction to heavy stress and disrupted adjustment patterns usually arise from some kind of psychological trauma as well as long-term adverse conditions associated with it. Dissociative disorders were characterized by depression, anxiety, restlessness, an inability to cope, plan around or remain in a situation, while more acute states were characterized by obnubilative states, including a clouding of the consciousness, a shortened attention span, inadequate reaction to external stimuli and a tendency towards disorientation.

      The main characteristic of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder was a tendency towards persistent, recurring thoughts or actions directed towards the prevention of some kind of objectively unpleasant events, harmful to the patient. Generally, these thoughts are accompanied by depressive tendencies, feelings of internal discomfort and anxiety with ANS symptoms.

       All patients examined underwent therapy for Neurotic Disorders by means of cosmoenergy channels (Faruhn-Buddha, Firahst, Shaon, Kraon, Zevs) conditions for which were provided by a facility of the neurological wing of the Krasnoyarsk Scientific Center, Siberian Department of the Russian Academy of Sciences hospital. The cosmoenergy sessions were done in courses of 10 sessions, each of which lasted 60 minutes per day.

       In order to study the dynamics of the changes in the OP figures between the right and left hemispheres of the brain in the course of the therapy sessions, in this case by means of the cosmoenergy channels, we had to develop and utilize a new diagnostic method, based on the works [2, 5, 10, 14]. The method was called Dynamic Inter-hemisphere Brain Omegametrics [4].

      The main principle of the Omegametrics method now used in physiology and clinical work, in the deflection from the surface of the patient’s forehead (F) to the thenar (T) of his wrists, lies in the continuous fixation (in 1 second intervals) of omega-potential during the course of a cosmoenergy session.

       In order to record the dynamic omegametricity, in accordance with the “10-20 System,” active electrodes (cathodes) were positioned in the points Fp1 and Fp2 (forehead region) while the referential electrodes (anodes) were positioned in the thenar region of the opposites wrists: Fp2 – Ts and Fp1 – Td.

       The dynamic curves of omega-potential allowed us to get the space-time and quantity-quality characteristics of the brain’s and entire organism’s functional states. It also allowed us to trace the changes therein during each cosmoenergy channel therapy session and the entire therapy as a whole. Based on this, we could then determined the difference in the omega-potential between the beginning and the end of one therapy session in on-line mode; as well as the difference between the initial omega-potential indicators and the final ones, after a full therapy of cosmoenergy was completed.

      According to the results based on both a visual and a statistical evaluation, each of the cosmoenergy sessions showed an unstable curve and a stable curve, with a reduction of the asymmetry by the end of the cosmoenergy session and without the reduction of asymmetry by the end of the session. This allowed us to make an evaluation (prognosis) of the effectiveness of each cosmoenergy session in particular and of the entire therapy as a whole [12, 15].

       The cosmoenergy channels were opened both on the patient and on the healer. The sessions were done in complete accordance with the session procedures.

        Statistical analysis of the results was done utilizing the Student t-criteria. The differences between results with the value P < 0.05 were considered significant.

 

Results and Discussions

       In order to prove the interdependence of the sanogenesis processes, including the omega-potential dynamics, and cosmoenergy sessions for Marginal Nervous and Mental Disorders (MNMD) patients, we have analyzed recordings of the brain’s omega-potential before and after the influence of a course of cosmoenergy channel treatment. Prior to the treatment, the average omega-potential values of the right hemisphere (RH) significantly (p<0.001) exceeded the parameters of the left hemisphere (LH) omega-potential. This indicated a significant interhemispheric asymmetry, culminating in 49.53 ± 8.44 mV in MNMD patients.

       The background omega-potential dynamic was combined with an inability of the MNMD patients to adequately perceive and regulate their condition, their affective instability, functionality breaches in their apprehensive processes and information processing, as well as the overall deterioration of their bodies’ resistance to different types of stress.

         The directivity, intensity and nature of the omega-potential changes in MNMD patients were closely tied to their psychological, emotional, autonomic, immune and endochrinologic lability. It is important to note that MNMD patients, the right hemisphere of the brain, in both its cortical and subcortical structures, takes on the main role in controlling the segmentary-peripheral level of the autonomic-humorous regulation.  First and foremost, this is one of the leading mechanisms of abnormality in the modulate influence of cortical activity, thalamic regions, diencephalic regions, and the hypothalamus and pituitary systems, which serve to coordinate the body’s functional activity in accordance with the changes in its surroundings.  This causes a disturbance in the body’s adaptive response, as well as a disturbance in the reciprocal relationship of the autonomic regulation levels. Brain activation by means of inadequate emotion-based exogenous and endogenous stimulation leads to the stimulation of the brain’s right hemisphere as well as the mobilization of all of the body’s resources. The first reaction we witness is a redistribution of the energy potential in favor of the right hemisphere. The subjective experiences of the MNMD patients in regards to the outside world and themselves causes a constant inflow of information, which affects both the thalamus and the brain cortical, primarily the RH, as it has more energy potential than the LH. This is usually accompanied by a series of changes in the autonomous status with primary CNS activation, as the right hemisphere corresponds to the CNS.

       The prevalence of the right hemisphere’s energy potential can be viewed from the standpoint of the activations of the brain’s defense mechanisms; a stopping and reducing of persistent negative emotions. We can see that the activation of this mechanism on a neurophysiological level in patients with MNMD manifests itself in a multidirectional dynamic of super slow physiological processes in regions of both the right and left hemispheres of the brain, which is, in fact, what causes the high-grade inter-hemispheric asymmetry.

      Analysis of the omega-potential dynamics in patients with neurotic disorders shows a post-cosmoenergy treatment normalization of the brain’s omega-potential and the reduction of the right hemisphere’s omega-potential (p<0.01) with a subsequent growth of the left-hemisphere’s omega-potential (p<0.01).

      The most significant aspect of the omega-potential changes of the MNMD patients’ brains was the reduction in the RH omega-potential as compared to the LH. In our opinion, the post-cosmoenergy treatment growth of the omega-potential in the left hemisphere is also very significant. If the pre-cosmoenergy treatment LH indicators had negative values (p<0.01), the post-treatment values corresponded to the norm.

       The general, the results of the omega-potential dynamics of MNMD patients after a cosmoenergy treatment session has allowed us to determine the integrating role the SSPP plays in the neurohumoral and autonomous regulation mechanisms in the body of the patient, on the level of structure functional organization.

      Thus, the optimal level of the super slow physiological processes re-stabilizes to an optimal level under the influence of cosmoenergy treatment sessions.

       We have conducted the first ever study of inter-hemispheric asymmetry, with the aid of omega-metrics, in patients suffering from MNMD during cosmoenergy session.

      The post-cosmoenergy session stabilization of the omega-potential values and reduction of inter-hemispheric asymmetry corresponded to an improvement in the patients’ conditions and curtailed the clinical-and-psychological symptomatology.

       Thus, the post-cosmoenergy session omega-potential value stabilization and inter-hemispheric asymmetry reduction indicates a self-regulating process harmonization of the central and autonomous system levels of organism function support.
