ABSTRACTAn interventional, quasi-experimental study of 50 old men, belonging to the health area No. 5 from Tulipán, in Cienfuegos that took part in the Ne Jigo Zen Do bioenergetic community project, was carried out from September, 2012 to June, 2014, in order to determine the influence of bioenergetic medicine in lifestyles changes, for which some variables were evaluated before and after the intervention, such as medications consumption, making exercises, depression level, just to mention some. Among the main results there were the female sex, the 65 to 69 age group and the osteomioarticular system disorders. After having applied the project in the patients, a systematic exercising was obtained and there was an increase in knowledge and use of the natural medicine; also, 72.0% didn't present depression, 70.0% showed normal attention and 84.0% normal memory level. Finally, 90% of the series manifested a maximum satisfaction with the changes, so we could conclude that the bioenergetic project had a positive impact in elderly lifestyles.
