Music healing the soul and healing the body

As you know, music can have a healing effect on a person. Well-chosen melodies can save you from depression, set up in a positive way, arrange for purchases, and even … grow hair. Since ancient times, melody has been an integral part for various celebrations, as well as for religious processions. For example, during the funeral of the deceased, it was believed that music helps to get rid of grief and relieve the suffering of loved ones. So, already in the XVII century, some scientists began to put forward hypotheses about the healing effects of music therapy. A little later, the famous doctor Linnek created the theory that a melody, depending on the rhythm, can affect a person in different ways. For example, the rhythm of the march that accompanied the troops on campaigns was slightly slower than the beating of the heart, which allowed soldiers to make long journeys without feeling tired. And vice versa, the march, having a faster pace, gave a feeling of vigor and a surge of strength.

Music Heals Disease

Currently, music has also been used to treat certain diseases. For example, in a clinic in Munich, patients suffering from diseases of the gastrointestinal tract were given daily listening to the works of Mozart and Beethoven. Surprisingly, this experiment yielded stunning results: patients recovered faster, and their mental attitude became more and more positive. Then the clinics of other countries took over this experience, selecting tunes in strictness with their effect on the human body. In France, this issue was taken especially seriously, and the National Institute of Blood Transfusion of this country began to very strictly and carefully select certain melodies that had a beneficial effect on the course of operations. In addition, clinics in the Netherlands came to the conclusion that low-frequency vibrations that are not audible to the human ear can also have a healing effect, and they have begun to put it into practice.

For the treatment of many diseases, they began to use the performance on various musical instruments.

Scientists also found out that the music of I.S. Bach, as well as Mozart and Beethoven. Surprisingly, as it turned out, music affects not only people. The Dutch farmers decided to take advantage of this, putting Mozart’s works on cows, which made it possible to increase milk yield by several times. In addition, it was found that the dough is faster for this tune. In addition, armed with this knowledge, the Indian authorities began to put traditional Indian music on the plantations, which allowed to increase the yield by 20 – 67%. In Germany, special melodies were developed that are sold only in pharmacies and have a beneficial effect on certain human organs. So, there you can find music discs with the inscriptions “Stomach”, “Heart”, “Kidneys”.

Over time, the study of the effects of music on the human body continued. Entire scientific conferences began to be organized on this subject, where scientists, doctors, and psychologists presented their theories and research. As a result, they came to the conclusion that heavy music, such as hard rock, slows down plant growth, and that after attending rock concerts, listeners cannot adequately respond to external stimuli for 3 to 5 hours. In addition, the crowd, wound up with such music, can often become aggressive.

Another thing is the effect of classical music, which is as close as possible in rhythm to the heartbeat, equal to an average of 60 beats per minute. In addition to the classics, church music as well as folk music has such a slow pace, designed to calm, and also helps to relax and achieve spiritual harmony.

If you feel sad, depressed or stressed, listening to nature sounds that have a calming effect on your psyche will help you. Such music will help normalize blood pressure, calm heart rhythms and gather thoughts. In addition, the waltz music helps you quickly escape from negative thoughts.
