The etiopathogenetic basis of the social and psychic epidemics is the bio-psycho-sociospiritual factors, which deﬁne the paths of emergence and the mechanisms of progression of massively-induced neuropsychic disorders, the earliest forms of which were titled “hysterodemoniacal”: shaman disease, menerik, emeriak, hiccups, sheva, lishinka, kila and others. We underline the clinical forms and pathokinesis of induced conditions and diseases, factors and forms of traditional spiritual culture, which aﬀect the speciﬁcs of development of social epidemics.
