Meditation – Music Medicine – Sound at a Cellular Level
Dr. Lee Bartel talks on TEDx about studies he has conducted that found that stimulating cells with sound can reduce the risk and impact of some common health problems.
Sound impacts on cells in the body and circuits within our brains – healthy circuits require steady brainwaves – and brainwaves are important to our health.
Dr. Bartel explains how 40 Hz music stimulates steady brainwaves which help to reduce the symptoms of debilitating health conditions like Alzheimer’s Disease and Fibromyalgia.
Alzheimer’s Disease causes:
Memory loss and confusion
An inability to learn new things
Difficulty with language
Problems with reading and writing and working with numbers
Difficulty organising thoughts and thinking logically
Shortened attention span
Problems coping with new situations
It is not known what causes Fibromyalgia, but the condition is thought to be related to abnormal levels of certain chemicals in the brain – symptoms include:
Widespread pain throughout the body
Increased sensitivity to pain
Problems with memory and concentration
In Dr. Lee Bartel’s talk he says that studies have demonstrated that people suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease show a steady decrease in 40 Hz brainwaves – and that sound stimulation increases 40 Hz brainwaves. By listening to 30 minutes of 40 Hz stimulation several times a week, studies found a decrease in the impact of Alzheimer’s – demonstrating that music can slow down the progression of the disease.
Treating patients suffering from fibromyalgia with ‘music therapy’ – prescribing regular bouts of 40 Hz stimulation instead of drugs – resulted in less depression, better mobility and better sleeping patterns – and a reduction in the reliance on prescribed drugs.
The benefits of 40 Hertz light and sound therapy are still being researched and more beneficial effects are being discovered all the time. In the meantime, the feedback from all our fans on this channel is really helpful in collating sufficient data to convince sceptics and help other sufferers.
