ALTERNATIVE METHOD FOR TREATING ARTERIAL HYPERTENSION WITH THE USE OF THE «MOXI» DEVICE
The aim of the article was to study of the influence of the apparatus “MOXI” as an alternative method for the correction of arterial hypertension and improving the quality of life of patients using acupuncture reflexotherapy.
Materials and methods. The study was conducted in 36 patients with arterial hypertension of 1 stage, low risk, with the experience of the disease from 1 to 2.5 years, without taking antihypertensive therapy. The average age of patients was 41.3±2.6 years. The state of the psycho-emotional sphere was assessed by the SAN test. The determination of the general non-specific adaptation reaction according to Garkavi-Kvakina-Ukolova was carried out. Control of blood pressure and pulse, was carried out in the center, and by the diaries of self-control. We calculated the arithmetic mean of blood pressure for the day and week. Baseline blood pressure was 152/106 mmHg when measured at the center and 149/102 mmHg at home.
Results. The obtained results indicate that the adaptogenic set of acupuncture points allows you to simultaneous selective regulation of the function of organs and systems according to the principle of segmental and vegetative innervation. After a course of preventive recovery, a statistically significant (p<0.05) normalization of well-being indicators according to the SAN test was noted from 4.0 to 4.6 points, activity from 3.9 to 4.4 points, mood from 3.9 to 4.7 points. All patients showed a pronounced reduction of complaints and autonomic disorders. In addition, we revealed improvement in the functional state of the cardiovascular system. So, systolic pressure decreased from 152±1.5 mmHg up to 134±2.4 mmHg, and diastolic from 106±0.7 mmHg to 82±1.8 mmHg.
Conclusions. As a result of the prophylactic treatment, all patients registered a normal type of adaptive response, since the training reaction was detected in 44.4 % of cases, the calm activation reaction was 22.2 %, in the area of increased activation - 33.4 %. The use of the “MOXI” device in the treatment of patients with arterial hypertension of 1 type, with a low level of risk gives a positive therapeutic effect in the normalization of the psycho-emotional state of patients. It normalizes non-specific adaptation reactions of the body, and allows you to achieve a decrease in blood pressure to normal levels.
