Relationships between geomagnetic Ар-indeх and EEG parameters in patients with dysfunction of the neuroendocrine-immune complex
Keywordsgeomagnetic Ap-index, acupuncture points, EEG, immunity, relationships, humans
Background. Recently, on the example of two cohort of patients, we found that disturbances of the geomagnetic field cause a significant immediate modulating effect on the level of immune parameters in the blood. The data available in the literature give grounds for assumptions about the direct effect of disturbances of the geomagnetic field on immunocytes, and indirectly, through immunotropic neurotransmitters and hormones. Our hypothesis is as follows. Disturbances of the geomagnetic field are perceived by acupuncture points (APs). The information obtained is transmitted to neurons and endocrinocytes, the mediators of which, in turn, affect immunocytes. The purpose of this study is to test this hypothesis.
Methods. The object of observation were 21 men (24-63 y) and 20 women (30-72 y) with neuroendocrine-immune complex dysfunction. Each patient was tested twice with an interval of 4 days. We recorded the ongoing electroencephalogram (EEG). Retrospectively we recorded the geomagnetic Ap-Index on the day of testing and during the previous 7 days, using resource https://www.spaceweatherlive.com/.
Results. The canonical correlation between Ap-indices for 7 days before and on the day of testing, and EEG parameters is 0,886; immunity parameters is 0,921. In turn, the immune parameters are closely related to the EEG parameters (R=0,944).
Conclusion. Disturbances of the geomagnetic field (Ap-index) causes a significant immediate modulating effect on the parameters of immunity as well as EEG, apparently through acupuncture points as polymodal receptors of the ecoceptive sensitivity system.
