2013-01-18 08:07:14 - There is no shortage of proof that modern medicine is tapping into the power of healing music as a reliable source for better health. Here are five ways that Joe Vitale’s healing music offers long-term benefits to health.
Los Angeles, CA – 1-17-2013 (JoedolanPR): While the varieties of music available at any time range from the absurdly loud heavy metal style to the ever present sleep modified elevator music, the fact remains that it all has a powerful affect on our mood, our attitudes and as science has confirmed, our overall health. Modern medicine has countless ways to implement music therapy for pain relief, improved function and relaxation. Self-help singer-songwriter Joe Vitale offers a catalog of healing music that shares boundless benefits for better health. Here are five stunning and scientifically proven ways that healing music affects the body.
1. Boosting the Immune System:
The loud and aggressive music often pouring from a teenage driver's car can cause immediate
tension when adults pull up alongside them. That tension causes body stress and debilitates the immune system's potency. When healing music is applied, the effect is the exact opposite.
Neuroscientists have proven that applications of steady, natural rhythms and gentle melodies cause the body to reduce Cortisol levels, a chemical the brain produces that leads directly to stress. It also raises immune markers in the body, which create antibodies used to fight disease. Through repeated applications of healing music, the body can actually learn to identify this type of music as immune boosting.
2. Increasing Spatial Reasoning:
Simple improvement in the mechanisms that allow clear thinking and a more focused thought process is attainable with the help of healing music. There are many theories, often related to the Mozart Theory, that claim certain aspects of music can increase an IQ score, but underlying the theories is the proof that a calmly constructed song can direct focus, relax the mind and clear out confusion. This allows for better reasoning, memory recall and stronger concentration. When played as background music, or during meditation, healing music is proven to improve the ability to think.
3. Recalling Memory:
Unlike simple reading or conversation, which may jump back and forth between the left and right brain, listening to music has a profound effect that accesses both sides of the brain actively. Neuroscientists have discovered that music allows access to the hippocampus, where long term memory is stored and by listening to healing music, access to long forgotten memories is opened wide. This can result in emotional energizing, healing of suppressed strife and an added abundance of joy from recalling memories of happy days gone by. The spur in positive energy from recalling memories transfers to an alertness in the body that can lead to healing, stress reduction and an overall improved attitude and self-worth.
4. Overcoming Addiction:
As the body withdraws from addiction, there is an unheeding desire to return to the effects of addictive products. Healing music drives the body to remove its focus from desire and along with the natural tempos of the songs, it brings the mind’s attention to the rhythm and harmony in each piece. Addictive drugs and alcohol affect neurotransmitters, which relay information throughout the brain. Music has the same affect on neurotransmitters. Unlike drugs, which replace the brain’s creation of neurotransmitters, music creates and strengthens the brain's ability to develop them and use them to their full potential. When drug use is ended, the body, which once relied on the drugs to create and support these transmitters, now looks to itself to create them. Music spurs the development of new transmitters, replacing the brain's dependency on the former addictive qualities of drugs.
5. Repairing Brain Damage:
In proven instances and applied therapies, music has been found to return the ability to speak back to people who have lost partial ability due to stroke, lesion and other brain-damages. While speaking is a left-brain function, music is a right brain function. By implementing healing music, its affect to spur the body to come alive and even sing along can help retrain the mind to carry those left brain functions over to the right side of the brain. The mind can essentially ‘re-wire’ itself to continue performing the tasks of speaking.
An added effect to healing music is its ability to bring pleasure to the brain as it listens to natural rhythms that the brain is familiar with. By doing this, it releases dopamine, a natural chemical that tweaks certain parts of the brain to simply function better.
Joe Vitale has studied the science of how music positively affects the body and has recorded a growing catalog of healing music with like-minded professionals in the music industry. Sharing their understanding of music’s healing power, as well as their talents in recording music, the results have produced 4-featured CDs with an abundance of healing benefits.
