Music Therapy: A Complementary Medicine

Music therapy, a form of complementary medicine has begun to be widely used by trained therapists in overcoming emotional, intellectual, social and physical challenges. Geriatric nursing homes, nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centres, schools, and community centres are all using music therapy for the well being of their inmates with a great degree of success.

Throughout the history of mankind, music has been a vehicle for expressing emotions, and profoundly affects our moods, while altering our breathing and heart rate, either by acting as a stimulant or a sedative. Non-toxic, with no harmful effects, music therapy is a safe remedy for alleviating emotional, social and physical ailments. Reducing stress, improving moods, and helping to relax, music can also act as an incentive to exercise, dance or jog the trail. It improves academic strengths, communication skills, attention spans and motor skills, and helps in pain management and behavioural therapy.

Our brain functions responding physically to music, let its rhythm guide our bodies into a pattern of slow, deep breathing inducing a feeling of calm and relaxing tense muscles. Extremely responsive to the volume and beat of music, heart rates and blood pressure speed up or slow down to match the tempo. Raising endorphins (natural pain relievers) levels in our bodies, music decreases stress hormone levels, thereby leading to a definite improvement in our bodily immune functions.

It not only sharpens mental acuity, music enhances memory and learning, so much so, children suffering from learning disabilities have shown a marked improvement. Known to raise productivity as a direct outcome of intense concentration, companies and industries encourage employees to listen to music at work.

A mood creator, movie makers exploit it by using music to create a mood of calm, tension, romance or excitement in the cinema audience. And, since time immemorial, mothers soothe babies, and send them to sleep to the sound of softly sung lullabies, which makes music a valuable therapeutic tool, especially for cranky newborns.

A sensory stimulation, music helps children learn to explore, express emotion and communicate effectively, it stimulates both the brain hemispheres, and marks an improvement in speech and language skills. Promoting self-esteem, it decreases stress, anxiety and pain, helping mothers in labour and post operation patients to recover successfully.

Brain damaged stroke patients, sufferers of traumatic brain injuries and other neurological conditions have been known to significantly improve as a result of practising music therapy.

Geriatric patients in nursing homes, prone to anxiety and depression, suffering from chronic painful diseases find, music not only provides enjoyment, relaxation, and relief from pain, it is also an opportunity for socialising and reminiscing. Music has a striking effect on Alzheimer patients, who have been known to focus and become more responsive for a brief time as music calms and decreases agitation, a common trait of the disease. Studies have proven elderly people who play a musical instrument are emotionally and physically more fit than their non-musical peers.

An effective tool for the mentally and emotionally ill, music therapy has enabled autistic children to relate to others and helped them improve their learning skills. The soothing, calming influence of music is used by psychiatrists and therapists to improve reality orientation in substance abusers, schizophrenics, paranoiacs, people with personality disorders, anxiety sufferers by making them participate, interact socially and develop coping skills by effective expression of their feelings.

Music relieves pain, anxiety, and depression of terminally ill patients, providing relief from pain by helping them relax.

Dr. Julie Trudeau strongly advocates digital music therapy, advising patients not to discontinue medications / therapies prescribed by their doctor without prior consultation. But, she does recommend listening to digital music as a cure from pain, anxiety and stress! The best cure of all, relax to the sound of digital music or jog off the pounds listening to it!

Music Therapy: Science Proves the Power of Sound

A German physicist in the 18th century discovered that when a violin bow was scraped vertically across the rim of a metal plate,the sound waves produced created patterns in the sand sprinkled on the plate. Different musical tones caused the sand particles to move and create geometric patterns. And, in the 1960's H.Jenny, a Swiss scientist discovered the effects of sound waves on materials placed on metal plates.Low frequency sounds produced simple geometric shapes, while high sound frequencies created more complex patterns.The sound OH was found to produce a perfect circle, while the OM sound created a pattern resembling the Shri Yantra,, which is the ancient mandala for OM used in India for thousands of years. Ultimately, he concluded sound creates form and the entire human body has its own sound made up of the sounds produced by its cells, tissues and organs.

If your cells, tissues and organs produce sounds that are in harmony, your good health is assured. But, if stress or the trials and tribulations of modern day life bog you down, your body's sounds will fall out of harmony,and become jarringly disharmonious,thereby causing you to fall ill.It is important not only for the sounds created by your cells, tissues and organs to be in sync with each other, but it is also imperative that they are in harmony with the universal sounds. That is why the world over, traditional cultures chant, sing, meditate, conducting a kind of fine tuning to ensure mental, physical and spiritual well-being.

Music Therapy: Sound Healing

Through millennia, music has been known to be a healing force that can work miraculous cures, and sound vibrations were used by ancient civilisations to cure, with traditional cultures that still survive understanding the remarkable healing power that lies in sound. As science explores the veracity of sound healing, it is beginning to find a permanent niche for itself in the field of holistic healthcare.

History tells us through the Bible about how David played his harp to lift King Saul's depression, and 2,600-year old Egyptian papyri have been discovered that refer to incantations cures for rheumatic pain and infertility. The ancient Greeks believed in the power of music to heal mind, body and soul, and used the flute and lyre to treat ailments such as sciatica and gout. Alexander the Great, while in a schizophrenic bout is known to have been restored to sanity by music played upon the lyre, and as an ancient Greek saying goes: "Men have song as a physician for pain."Greek Mathematician, philosopher, Pythagoras, had special incantations and songs chanted and sung to particular airs and rhythms for curing mind/body diseases.

To elucidate what sound healing is,it is a therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the mind/body of the sufferer, in order to bring them to a state of inner/outer harmony and good health. High sound frequencies activate our brains and affect the functions of our rational minds i.e.thinking, spatial perception and memory. Listening to musical sound vibrations increases our concentration and attentiveness. And,just as an opera singer causes glass to vibrate by matching the resonant frequency of the glass, by increasing the volume of their music notes, the resonance can cause the glass to shatter with the power of their singing.Similarly, modern medicine has found that sound waves can be used to break up and shatter kidney and gall stones.

Every cell, organ, bone in the body has its own resonant frequency.Combined they make a combined frequency like the instruments of an orchestra. Therefore, when one organ of the body is out of tune, it affects the whole body. But,a trained music therapist through sound healing can bring the diseased organ into harmony with the rest of the body, thus avoiding the need for drugs or surgery.

Dr. Julie Trudeau,a trained therapist can with the help of her selection of powerful rhythmic vibrations or digital music sounds make your weak vibrations lock into the vibration of her healing sounds, thereby affecting a complete cure of your ailments.

Many years ago,Brahmin priests accomplished many wondrous deeds simply by chanting particular mantras.Even today, you can chant mantras, prayers or listen to musical sound vibrations to help cure tired,stressed out minds,bodies and souls."Mantras or musical sound vibrations start a powerful vibration which corresponds to both a specific spiritual energy frequency and a state of consciousness in seed form.Over time,the mantra process begins to override all of the other smaller vibrations, which eventually become absorbed by the mantra.After a length of time which varies from individual to individual, the great wave of the mantra stills all other vibrations. Ultimately, the mantra produces a state where the organism vibrates at the rate completely in tune with the energy and spiritual state represented by and contained within the mantra."

driving are twice as likely to be involved in car crashes than those who listen to slow tempo rhythms.

Worrying news, indeed, as previous studies showed a link between loud music and dangerous driving. As a test, Warren Brodsky (Ben-Gurion University) put a group of 28-students with 7-years of driving experience through their paces on a driving simulator. They drove around the virtual streets of Chicago listening to different pieces of music or no music at all. They heard tracks of loud digital music in a variety of styles from easy George Benson ballads to ultra-fast dance numbers played in discos for the clubbers.

Brodsky noticed as the music tempo increased, the test drivers took more risks, jumping red lights, pressing down on the gas pedal and crashing into other cars. Monitoring their heart rate, he found it fluctuated less when no music or slow music was played, a variation that suggests
the kind of music you listen to can distract drivers and make them less alert. Findings that make Brodsky recommend listening to slow tempo music at lower volumes, if you wish to drive safe.

Sound vibrations that have their own fields of energy, energy fields that vibrate in sync with other energy fields, to ensure physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

As our whole body from the cells to the organs and tissues vibrate sending out sound frequencies that resonate within us, frequencies and vibrations that interact with others in our environment. And, the vibrations and sounds that fill our world are powerful enough to change our body's sound symphony, improving or damaging our health depending on our bodies react to the environment's sound vibrations. Likewise, the vibrating sounds that emanate from our bodies can bear a great influence on and change our surrounding environment.

Ancient healers, philosophers taught that we should live according to the principle of vibration i.e. everything is in motion and this motion is responsible for making everything vibrate. For millennia, Hindu and Buddhist sages taught prayer chants and mantras to lead us to complete wholeness of mind, body and soul.

Mantras (sounds received through revelation), vowel sounds and harmonics are most potent for curative, harmonizing, orientation, and synchronization purposes. Apart from listening to either recorded or live music, chanting can also be very efficient for comprehensive human development. On the physical, sound has the ability to rearrange molecular structure thus. This is a scientific fact. As we know, everything in the universe is in a state of vibration, from the chair you may be sitting in to the pages of this magazine.

Therein, lies music's intriguing biological mystery. Universally loved, uniquely powerful, it wrings emotions and is all encompassingly important to us. So important that G.F. Miller (University of New Mexico) believes it enhanced human survival by aiding courtship. So important, that R.M. Dunbar (University of Liverpool) believes it promoted social cohesion in groups that had grown too large. So important that Steven Pinker (Harvard University) calls it "auditory cheesecake", a fortunate accident of evolution that tickles our brain's fancy. Despite, their extensive research neuro-scientists still don't have all the answers, but they have seen and recorded the beneficial effects of music and know that it helps in emotional, mental, spiritual and physical good health and well-being.

Dr. Julie Trudeau with her training as a therapist has put together a selection of wonderful sound vibrations, digital music vibrations that will elicit feeling and emotions, you didn't believe you were capable of.

He relates how while in medical college, all kinds of music was tested on patients, colleagues and others, but Bach's music was found to consistently make the brain work in a balanced harmony compared to other genres of music. According to him, loudness, tempo, dissonant and poor tone quality are factors that can affect our health, behaviour and emotions.

Music Therapy: A Quest for Spiritual & Physical Harmony

More and more scientific studies are proving that music is beneficial as long as you are listening to the right kind of notes. British Medical Journal conducted a study that showed how hard rock and heavy metal digital music can do incurable damage to the lungs. In another study
reported by Insight Magazine, physicist Dr. Harvey Bird (Fairleigh Dickinson University) and neurobiologist Dr. Gervasia Schreckenberg (Georgian Court College) experimented on the effect of music on animals. The three groups of mice used were each exposed to either voodoo music, Strauss Waltzes or plain silence. Music was played at low levels to ensure loud volume did not spoil the experiment. The mice were trained to run through a maze to find their food while listening to the music. The mice listening to voodoo music had great difficulty in finding their food, it either went bad or they were hopelessly lost. The other two groups faced no problems and found their food easily with the mice listening to Waltz music doing slightly better. All three groups were given 3-week break of silence, but the listeners of voodoo music continued to get lost while the others made their way back easily and found the food without any problems.

The experiment ended with a comparison and a check of the mice brains. The rock / voodoo group did not fair well, there was excessive branching of neuronal dentrites and significant increases in mRNA. Dr.Schreckenberg, the neurobiologist explains: "We believe that the mice were trying to compensate for this constant bombardment of disharmonic noise. They were struggling against the chaos. If more connections among the neurons had been made, it would have been a good thing. But instead there were no more connections, just wild growth of the neurons. As a result of the exposure to the disharmonic sounds, we believe there was less capacity for memory in the exposed mice."

In the words of a high school student who conducted a similar experiment: "I had to cut my project short because all the hard-rock mice killed each other. None of the classical mice did that at all. "

Tracing the roots of rock music one begins with Big Band and Jazz, acouple more steps and there is New Orleans and Haiti, and ultimately back to the voodoo beat, the drum beat of Africa. Why is the music so debilitating. Because discordant music vibrations and beats create friction as energy from sound vibrations pass through the seven chakras or energy centres of our bodies i.e. crown, third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, soul and base of our spine. If harmonious music sound vibrational energy passes through our charkas we end up physically healthy, emotionally happy, mentally at peace and spiritually in tune with the music of the Cosmos or the spheres.

So powerful is the sound of music that even water is affected by song lyrics and musical tones. Subjecting water and water crystals to different sounds and swear words, Masaru Emoto found normal water turned to intricate crystal patterns of pure waster when prayed over or when classical music was played. Negative thoughts; swear words like Hitler and discordant music turned normal water into an unhealthy hue.

Beautiful thoughts and sounds make beautiful patterns. Many enlightened thinkers compare each soul to a crystal. We have unique patterns, colours and frequencies that make up our spiritual body. The spiritually inclined understand these principles and knew about sounds and music that help mankind connect with his divine potential and with God. Aristotle said: "Emotions of any kind are produced by melody and rhythm; therefore, by music a man becomes accustomed to feeling the right emotions; music has thus the power to form character, and the various kinds of music based on the various modes, may be distinguished by their effects on character, for example, working in the direction of melancholy, another of effeminacy; one encouraging abandonment, another self-control, another enthusiasm, and so on through the series."

Dr. Julie Trudeau, a trained therapist can help you attain physical well being and attain your spiritual goal by listening to her compilation of sound vibrations. Play a track of her digital music while you say a prayer or chant mantras, meditate to calm and attune you to the subtle vibrations of the spirit.

Music Therapy: The Right Choice of Ragas

Music makes us feel good and relieves our stress and tension, gives welcome release to anger and makes us very happy as we listen to it. Ragas or music notes could well be the most well kept secret, a secret that could set you on a spiritual path. But, take heed; you should be very careful about the kind of digital music you listen to. Most of the music played today hinders rather then brings about a pleasurable feeling of well-being. And, there is enough documentary evidence to prove it is true.

Dr. John Diamond, Kinesiology expert and author of the book Your Body Doesn't Lie believing in the positive side of music discovered the consciousness and abilities of a music conductor can greatly affect the amount of energy coming from a music performance or a digital recording. So powerful is the effect of music that several books have been written on the power of music not only on humans but plants and animals, as well. Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird in their classic The Secret Life of Plants devote a whole chapter to The Harmonic Life of Plants. Dr. T.C. Singh, Dept. Head of Botany at Annamalai University discovered how ragas or Indian musical notes helped plants to grow. And, in the 1950s and 1960s several experiments carried out in Canada and USA found plants and crops grew faster and were much healthier when exposed to Bach, Gershwin and certain other sound vibrations and frequencies.

Mrs. Retallack, organist and mezzo soprano carried out carefully controlled experiments on the effect of music on summer squashes by dosing one group with heavy rock and the other with classical music. Squashes exposed to Beethoven, Haydn, Brahms, Schubert, etc. began to grow in he direction of the music transmitter, and twined themselves round it in a loving embrace. The squashes on a dose of hard, heavy metal and rock digital music grew in a direction as far as possible from the transmitter, even trying to slither up the slippery walls of their
cage. Experimenting on other plants and flowers, she found rock music either caused plants to grow too tall with small leaves or else remain stunted. Within a fortnight all the flowering plants had died, but a couple exposed to classical music had opened out and were in full flower. Also, she noticed plants exposed to rock drank a lot of water, enjoying their drink less with soil growth barely above an inch. Bringing her findings to the notice of sceptical scientists, they were immediately dismissed with flippant remarks like, "plants have no ears." But, we all know that is incorrect, digital music like everything else affects humans, plants and animals in the same way.

Dr. Julie Trudeau, trained therapist believing discordant music has an adverse effect on our physical, emotional and spiritual health has put together a rainbow hued collection of ragas or music notes. This rainbow shower of digital music will counteract the disharmonious sounds of present day music. Her sound vibrations will calm, soothe and induce a pleasant, happy state of mind. An endorphin producing track of harmonious sounds to put you back on an even keel!

Music Therapy: Refining our Way of Life

If you can hear the music of the spheres, the rhythm that strengthens realisation of evolution, then your heart is full of love and compassion. If your ears are open to higher harmonies, these musical sounds will intensify allowing the strings of your heart to echo in perfect harmony to the vibration of rhythms. Intoning of chants with emphasis on the rhythm, ringing of temple bells are intensely meaningful and have great power to heal. The ancients knew which sounds had the greatest effect, and even in the most primitive form of shamanism during prayers and ceremonials, a closed hand at the mouth of trumpets and flutes was used to strengthen and concentrate sound.

Musical vibrations are powerful enough to draw forth subtle feeling from the depths of the heart, bringing peace and averting evil. Sound vibrations that throw out fields of subtle energy can refine our entire way of living by increasing our sensitive and perceptiveness, evoking higher emotions by quelling the baser side of our natures, and purifying our spirits.

Dr. Julie Trudeau with her training in music therapy has put together music vibrations that have the power to arrest the growth of many diseases such as cancer, tuberculosis, stomach ulcers, etc. by our psyche's reaction to digital music. Each track of her digital music CDs is compiled to harmonise the body's vibrations with the music of the spheres. A rainbow shower of digital music notes!

Music Therapy: Inner and Outer Healing

When you put on a track of digital music, make certain that your choice of music is chosen with great care. Only that music should be played that harmonises and unifies our emotions, our body rhythms and synchronises the vibrations of our soul with that of the universal sound. Plato taught that music should not be heard or understood in a narrow sense alone; it should be understood as a participation in all harmonious arts. In simpler terms, he meant dance, poetry, painting, sculpture, architecture, speech, song, are all physical expressions of music.

Humanity misunderstands the concept of rhythm and the ancient teachings about the significance of rhythm are lost to it, as it indulges in cacophonous sounds that excite a frenzied fit of dancing. Scientists may have begun to speak about vibratory rhythm, but except for a few brave souls, they continue to remain silent about the beneficial effects of these sound vibrations. Musical rhythm is present in all creations, in all of life and serenity derived from harmonious sounds is within the grasp of anyone who listens to the vibrating sounds of digital music. Digital music has the power to evoke peace of mind and music can be utilised to bring harmony to our fractured world. It can help us merge with the Cosmos, co-ordinate with the Earth, as digital music brings about health and a healing of our inner and outer wounds.

Dr. Julie Trudeau, a trained therapist has a supreme collection of rhythmic vibratory sounds, digital music tones that escaping from the CD track form a rainbow shower of echoes that resonate to the music of the spheres!

Digital Music: Effects of Music on health

Digital Music and the music have a great and positive effect on our health. Digital Music has been shown to increase endorphin levels which are the body's feel good hormones. They can reduce pain and induce a natural high. Research involving music therapy has shown that music relieves anxiety and provides distraction from pain by inducing the release of endorphins. In a research it is shown that music can decrease the level of stress hormones in the body significantly.

Stress is caused by the release of the hormone cortisol in the bloodstream. Music can trigger past romantic associations that the brain has linked with certain songs or pieces of music. This can summon intense romantic or sensual feelings from the past to manifest in the present. Digital Music can slow down or equalize brain waves.

The slower the brain waves, the more relaxed and peaceful we feel. Music reduces body tension and improves body movement.
