The functional–vegetative diagnostics was suggested in order to determine the functional state of men organism by revealing age–specific features of the autonomic nervous system status. Material and methods. The method of V. Makats was used for conducting of functional vegetative diagnostics. We surveyed 80 men aged from 21 to 51 years. The bioelectric activity of 12 symmetric pairs of functionally active zones of the skin (24 FAZ) was studied (12 on the hands and 12 on the feet). They reflect the functional activity of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The obtained mA functional vegetative diagnostics data were translated into relative values. Results and discussion. For the first time, the methodology of functional vegetative diagnostics allowed to identify hypothetical acupuncture channels, to reveal their systemic interdependence and to prove its direct relation to the vegetative homeostasis of man. Acupuncture channels have an information–interdependent complex structure, which is controlled by cosmophysical dependence (functional two–hour biorhythm) and three types of systemic reactions: synchronous, asynchronous and paradoxical. We established the specificity of the influence of BL–SP channels on the directional activity of other systems: their excitation caused the suppression of other channels (and, conversely) and depended on the postures (ortho– and clinostatics) during the functional vegetative diagnostics. It was the vegetative coefficient kV, not the analysis of absolute values of indicators, that was used to determine the normal values of the vegetative states and deviations from the norm. The vegetative coefficient kV reflected the ratio of sympathetic and parasympathetic activity of YAN and YIN channels. The functional–vegetative system of the surveyed number of men was the specific biophysical reality with special system–vegetative dynamics. Directed systemic activity in the male adult group was characterized by functional instability and a "paradoxically chaotic" relationship that was difficult to analyse. The analysis of the data obtained in the male group of mature age (21–50 years) showed that 27.5% of the surveyed men were in the significant parasympathetic prevalence zone; in the expressed parasympathetic prevalence zone, 26.3%; in the functional compensation of parasympathetic activity zone 17.5%; in the vegetative equilibrium zone 11.3%; in the functional compensation of sympathetic activity zone 8.8%; in the expressed sympathetic prevalence zone 6.3% and in the significant sympathetic prevalence zone 2.5%. The analysis of the dispersion of levels of vegetative equilibrium of the mature men by "critical zones" showed that 53.8% of men were in the parasympathetic zone, 37.5% were in the functional equilibrium zone and 8.8% were in the sympathetic zone. Conclusion. The level of group parasympathicotonia revealed by us as a result of research showed the depletion and disturbance of the processes of adaptation and self–organization in the body.
