Abstract and Figures

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to explore the long-range effects of the Reconnective Healing upon vegetative regulation of the heart rhythm, energy reserve parameters and immune status in experimental groups compared with control cohorts. Methods: The Heart Rate Variability (HRV), Electrophotonic Imaging (Gas Discharge Visualization EPI/GDV) camera and blood analysis were used to assess subjects' state before and 10 days after Reconnective Healing. The double-blind test was carried out with 60 apparently healthy volunteers of the different gender and age. At the first stage of experiment 10 athletes were measured before and after intensive physical loading in initial condition and 10 days after two-hour session of Reconnective healing. At the second stage immune status from blood and physiological parameters were tested for 20 people in initial conditions and 10 days after two-hour session of Reconnective healing. Equal amount of people was in control groups having no interventions. Results: Most of the recipients of these treatments experienced increase in fingertip florescence area and average intensity, improvement of heart parameters and improved immune status measured from blood. With all of these parameters simultaneously improving, the patients received a good benefit from these sessions. Conclusions: We may conclude that session of the Reconnection Healing had statistically significant positive influence on the functional state, humoral activity, physical condition and reaction to loading for the group of people in 10 days after the influence.

A two-hour session of reconnective healing was used as an intervention. ...
Context: Gas discharge visualization (GDV) works on the principle of the Kirlian effect. It's a noninvasive, quick, and safe biometric tool to investigate the psychophysiological state of an individual, with the potential to identify deviations from the healthy functioning of humans at early stages. Objective: The study intended to systematically document the scientific evidence pertaining to the use of GDV devices in human health and disease conditions. Design: The research team performed a systematic search for studies on GDV on research databases such as Google Scholar, PubMed, and PsychINFO, using the following inclusion criteria: (1) experimental studies dealing with a GDV device, (2) studies dealing with human participants related to health and disease, and (3) studies published in the English language. The study excluded: (1) review articles, (2) case studies, (3) letter to editors, (4) studies with unclear methodology, and (5) studies published before the year 2000. Setting: The study took place in the Department of Integrative Medicine at the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) in Bengaluru, India. Results: After filtering, the research team obtained 108 publications that dealt with the application of a GDV device in human participants. Based on the selection criteria, 42 studies were included in the review. These 42 studies included eight randomized controlled trials (RCTs), five nonrandomized controlled studies, 17 cross-sectional studies, 10 single-group pre-post studies, and two correlational studies. Conclusions: More studies with a robust methodology are needed to make definitive conclusions. The literature reveals that the GDV technique has the potential to provide early diagnosis and screening, especially in disorders of the endocrine and immune systems. It might also be used to assess wellness in healthy subjects and monitor the effects of interventions, such as yoga-including pranayama and meditation, acupuncture, qigong, music therapy, and massage on the human energy system. Future studies should focus on the validation of GDV imaging in clinical settings.

During a workshop demonstrating Electrophotonic Imaging based on the Gas Discharge Visualization technique, a series of experiments were conducted using Reconnective Healing, group intention focused on effecting the energy of a vial of water, and a novel use of a didgeridoo for sound therapy. The EPC/GDV techniques show the effects of the healing and group intention activities. In addition, the ambient energetic activity of the workshop room was monitored during various eras, using the new antenna device that has been added to the Electrophotonic Imaging/Gas Discharge Visualization camera system. Interesting variation in the ambient energy was observed among the various eras with different workshop activities.

Various instrumental methods have been developed for observing human emotions in psychology, the neurosciences, and machine learning studies. These methods are mostly directed to detecting individual, personal emotions. The focus of this study is developing instrumental methods for remote detection of human emotions, both individual and collective. A new antenna device has been added to the Electrophotonic Imaging/Gas Discharge Visualization camera system. Examples of data are explored from a water blessing ritual, healing workshop training, musical performance, geophysical measurements during a solar eclipse, and a shamanic ceremony. These preliminary indications demonstrate a potential for mapping the effects of human emotions. We propose an international collaborative project for a Geoactive Zones Database: developing maps of energy parameters for sacral subjects and a program for study of their influence on the human psycho-physiological condition; in relation with both the environmental situation, and the health and psycho-types of people.

Purpose: The aim of the study was to assess changes in images of corona discharges (ICD) in patients with cardiovascular diseases A corona discharge is an electrical discharge brought on by gases surrounding a conductor - animate or inanimate objects. Methods: The study population of 126 persons (81 men and 45 women) was divided into two groups: the study group consisted of 96 patients with coronary heart disease and the control group composed of 30 healthy persons. The study methods included recording of corona discharges of fingertips of both hands by using the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) Camera and analyzing changes in images of corona discharges dependent on conditions of medical examinations of patients, their frame of mind, age, gender, heart rate, blood pressure, serum potassium concentration, and the course of coronary heart disease. Results: Age, gender, temperature in examination rooms as well as frame of mind of the study population exerted a similar effect on ICD in both groups. Heart rate, blood pressure and the pattern of coronary heart disease exerted varied effects on the patients' ICD parameters in the study group. Conclusions: The analysis of changes in ICD may be a source of information about the effect of physiological and pathophysiological changes in the human health state, physical as well as mental.

In the history of Science developing of a new instrument always resulted in new understanding of Reality. Microscope, telescope, X-rays, tomography, ultra-sound - without these instruments modern science is powerless. Now a new instrument came to being - Computerised Gas Discharge Visualisation technique, based on well-known Kirlian Effect. Modern scientific means: electronics, optics, CCD matrix, image processing with powerful computer - created a new base for introduction this technique into scientific practice. This is a first tool that let us to visualise the distribution of human's fields, and to make it easily, reproducibly, graphically and, the last but not the least, inexpensive. GDV technique proved to be effective in quick diagnostic evaluation of the health and psycho- emotional state of patients in conventional and complementary medicine. This coupled with the ability to identify the grounds or indications of developing diseases, monitor the influence of different drugs, medicine, exercises, meditation is of great importance. Promising results were obtained in express-diagnoses of cancer by evaluating the dynamic of changes of the pictures. In the paper technical background, examples of experimental results and conceptual scientific approaches are presented.

This article is devoted to the study of image formation in gas discharge, initiated by a strong impulsive electromagnetic field around drops of four different nonorganic electrolytes. To describe the image mathematically we propose several parameters: the form coefficient (fractality), the entropy, and the average streamer width. We study the dependence of these parameters on concentration. The form coefficient turns out to have the best combination of stability and sensitivity in the whole range of concentrations. Statistically significant difference between the solutions and distilled water disappears at concentrations of about 2−20 N. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the scale and scope of implementing electrophoton capture (EPC) analysis based on gas discharge visualization (GDV) technique in diverse medical applications and psychophysiology; to identify the range of applications in medicine; and to show in which areas the procedure can be useful to health professionals. The design of the study is a systematic review. The database included articles published in peer-reviewed journals, proceedings of the international scientific congress "Science, Information, Spirit" (2003-2007), articles from the International Union of Medical and Applied Bioelectrography database, and proceedings of other conferences devoted to EPC or GDV, bioelectrography, and biophotonics. Search restrictions were human subjects, English or Russian language, and publication date from 2003 to 2007. All randomized controlled studies (RCTs) and systematic research reports (SRRs) were evaluated using Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network and Jadad checklists. Results: The search yielded 136 articles addressing four different fields of medical and psychophysiologic applications of EPC (GDV). Among them were 26 SRR, 19 RCT, 18 case reports or case series, and 13 cohort studies. Thirteen (13) RCTs and 19 SRRs were rated "high" on the two conventional checklists. (1) The software and equipment EPC/GDV-complex is a convenient and easy-to-use device, easily allows examining patients with various pathologies and, therefore, offers a wide range of applications. (2) The GDV method has shown itself to be very fast (i.e., it is an "express-method" for studying states of the human organism). (3) Our review has revealed that GDV method can be implemented as an express method for assessment of treatment procedure effectiveness, evaluating emotional and physical conditions of people, and in many other fields.

Biofield therapies (such as Reiki, therapeutic touch, and healing touch) are complementary medicine modalities that remain controversial and are utilized by a significant number of patients, with little information regarding their efficacy. This systematic review examines 66 clinical studies with a variety of biofield therapies in different patient populations. We conducted a quality assessment as well as a best evidence synthesis approach to examine evidence for biofield therapies in relevant outcomes for different clinical populations. Studies overall are of medium quality, and generally meet minimum standards for validity of inferences. Biofield therapies show strong evidence for reducing pain intensity in pain populations, and moderate evidence for reducing pain intensity hospitalized and cancer populations. There is moderate evidence for decreasing negative behavioral symptoms in dementia and moderate evidence for decreasing anxiety for hospitalized populations. There is equivocal evidence for biofield therapies' effects on fatigue and quality of life for cancer patients, as well as for comprehensive pain outcomes and affect in pain patients, and for decreasing anxiety in cardiovascular patients. There is a need for further high-quality studies in this area. Implications and future research directions are discussed.

The bio-electrographic method understands the analysis of electro-photonic emission of human fingertips in a high intensity electromagnetic field and has significant dependence on human bio-responses to a disease, drug treatment or environment. Comparison between the normal and the disease- or ldquoabnormalrdquo state of bio-electrographic data could provide a faster and reliable alternative to current preventive health care methods and practices. A dataset of individual values of (1) integral area of electro-photonic emission (IA) (2) activation coefficient (AC) and (3) level of integral entropy (IE) was generated by acquiring electro-photonic emission of human fingertips of 130 participants who were recruited randomly among the residents of Mississippi and mean values were calculated. A comparative analyses of the dataset populated heavily with healthy participants with that of participants with altered bio-responses (hormone imbalance and smoking) has shown that the bio-electrographic method can be used as a valuable tool in preventive health care management.
