Theoretical Justification And Practical Importance Of VitalScan

The theoretical basis of VitalScan underlies in a study, which brings evidence that chronically increased sympathetic tone (distress) can facilitate cancer development. This finding is similar to the positive relationship we have discovered between chronic sympathetic tone and other life threatening diseases (16). Consequently, we can conclude that the optimal equilibrium of the autonomic balance can play an extremely important role, and that is why it should be quantitatively controlled when cancer management is necessary. It seems that most of the complementary medical approaches for cancer treatment are based on parasympathetic facilitation. revealed that chemotherapy, surgery or radiotherapy are additionally increasing the sympathetic activity, which can contribute to the insufficient efficacy they are demonstrating. The management of malignancy is seeking for new methods decreasing cancer recurrence, relapses and assuring a metastasis-free survival (13, 14). Those methods should provide (according to the proposed model) periods of deep relaxation (vagotonia) as strong as possible, because it facilitates the work of the so called "intern health promoting mechanism". That is why the global anti-malignancy management (or strategy) should be directed not only towards "killing cells", but also towards improvement of their informational management. It is not cells that are "ill" from biological point of view, but rather the whole organism. Unfortunately, the humans are learning more how to work and less how to ensure complete rest for their organisms.

Graphical presentation of Stress-based malignancy model

(The quality "health" needs a regular oscillation of biological activity between A and B. As higher is the sympathetic prevalence in the day time (B), as higher is the parasympathetic prevalence in the night time (A)).

 A stands for: Night (rest); Increased parasympathetic (vagal) tone; Information exchanging (receiving); Deep relaxation in sleep; Paradox sleep - REM; Trophotropic orientation of the system (open system). 

B stands for: Day (action); Increased sympathetic tone; Information processing (loosing); High activation in wakefulness; Ergotropic orientation of the system (closed system). 

 There are mainly three types of oscillations:


1. Normal. It was observed in young, absolutely healthy persons and in sportsmen (not over-trained). 
There exists an optimal "exchange" (receiving) of information in night time (parasympathical (vagal) autonomic prevalence-REM) and its "processing" in day time (sympathetic autonomic prevalence). 
System does not need an intervention.

Highly pathogenic

2. Highly pathogenic. It was observed in persons with overstress and in ill persons, including cancer patients. 
The biological activity is more "B" oriented. The possibility to "exchange" life important biological information in rest is restricted. 
System needs more "A" activity.


3. Pathogenic. It was observed in aged persons as well as in persons from younger age groups, not willing to spent "efforts". 
The biological activity is less in "A", due to decreased "B" activity. 
The possibility to "exchange" life important biological information in rest is decreased. 
System needs more "B" activity.
