Music Found to Significantly Reduce Pain, Anxiety in Postop Heart Surgeries
Given that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the world, prevention and treatment have never been more important. While conventional cardiology relies heavily on pharmaceuticals in the management of cardiac conditions, music has been shown to have remarkable benefits without any side effects—music as medicine.
Ancient cultures understood the healing benefits of music and integrated it into their promotion of health and healing of disease. But this practice was mostly lost in the rise of western medicine. Today, that connection is gradually being restored as a new wave of research is being done on the healing benefits of music on the heart.
One such recent study found that listening to music is linked to a significant reduction in anxiety and pain after major heart surgery. The researchers concluded that clinicians should consider music for patients scheduled for surgery as it has none of the risks or side effects, and many of the benefits of the drugs most commonly used to aid in post-surgery recovery.
Scientists Make New Discovery in Efficacy of Sound Healing
Exciting new research and cutting-edge technologies show just how powerful sound, vibration, and frequency are in facilitating healing and expansion of consciousness.
Sound has been used for millennia as a powerful tool for physical healing and spiritual awakening. Today, new research into the science of sound, as well as emerging technologies to deliver personalized sound healing, has revolutionized the ancient practice.
Dr. Jeffrey Thompson is a renowned sound healer who has, over the last 40 years, pioneered a range of remarkable discoveries in the field. He explains how our connection to sound begins before birth.
“My total experience in the womb, and for all of us, is baptized by sound and vibration. My ears are hearing it, and the largest sensory organ of my body, my skin, is feeling it. That’s my whole experience for nine months. I think that’s why sound is the most powerful clinical tool; sound is bigger and more powerful than all of them,” Thompson said.
The mechanism by which sound brings about physical healing has been studied for decades and is continually being refined by new scientific findings.
“When a cell goes into a healing response, it increases its metabolism and its intake of food, expelling of waste, and rebuilding of tissue, so it’s raising its energy up. Sound waves can raise it to its highest possible potential that is way higher than the cell can do on its own, so we’ve just created a super-healing state,” he said.
