Using Solfeggio Frequency 528 Hz For Repairing Your DNA, Opening Your Heart, And More

 

Several years ago I did a post featuring information on the background and history of solfeggio tones/frequencies and how they can be used to positively affect our health in multiple ways. Today’s post is an article from Underground Health Reporter about one of the most popular tones, the 528 Hz “love frequency”, and how it can actually help repair DNA. What could be better (or easier) than chilling out listening to some soothing music and repairing your DNA at the same time?! More self-help tools like this, please and thank you! 🙂

Specific Music for Health Shown to Repair Your DNA

 Did you know that simply listening to a single musical note that vibrates at 528 Hz has been shown to repair your DNA?

All music that we’re familiar with consists of notes from the 12-Tone Equal Temperament Scale. Each individual note has vibrational limits.music for health

However, there is an ancient 6-tone scale of electro-magnetic frequencies called the original Solfeggio Scale. This scale, which was lost for centuries and was just recently rediscovered accidentally by Dr. Joseph Puleo, is said to hold unlimited potential in healing and personal transformation.

One of the notes on the Solfeggio Scale, particularly the one that vibrates at 528 Hz, has been used by biochemists to repair human DNA. The frequency of 528 Hz appears to influence the water molecules that surround the DNA helix, thereby bringing about healing effects on DNA.

DNA Healing Effects of Frequency 528 Hz

Perhaps the leading proponent of the miraculous healing power of the 528 Hz Solfeggio note is Dr. Leonard Horowitz, world famous author of 15 health science books, and Harvard graduated public health expert. According to Dr. Horowitz, all healing occurs from sonic waves or vibrations, specific frequencies of sound, resonating throughout the universe.

He claims that human cells use DNA, like radios use antennae, to receive the note vibrations and attune the body’s rhythm to that of the cosmos. He refers to the 528 Hz Solfeggio note as “the frequency of love” which, in addition to providing health benefits, opens the portals to spiritual transformation.

This is echoed by Dr. Candice Pert, PhD, who states that energy and vibration go all the way to the molecular level. She further states that we have 70 different receptors on the molecules — and when vibration and frequency reaches that far, they begin to vibrate.

This vibration, which happens at the cellular level, opens the chromosomes and exposes the DNA to the frequencies.

Experiments involving in vitro DNA exposed to different recordings of musical styles have been performed by Glen Rein of the Quantum Biology Research Lab in New York.

Four styles of music for health, including Gregorian chants that use the Solfeggio scale, were converted to scalar audio waves and played via a CD player to test tubes containing in vitro DNA.

The effects of the music were determined by measuring the DNA test tube samples’ absorption of UV light after an hour of exposure to the music. The absorption of UV light is regarded as a significant effect on DNA because when the DNA helix unwinds, it allows such absorption.

The results of Glen Rein’s experiments showed that the Gregorian chants caused a significant increase in the absorption of UV light versus rock music, which had little or no effect.

It was concluded that the audible sound waves of the Solfeggio scale can cause resonance in DNA and can, indeed, have profound healing effects.

To experience the effect of the 528 Hz note of the Solfeggio scale, just type “528 Hz” in YouTube and you’ll find several *videos that feature this healing frequency.

*FYI, one of my favorite tracks using the 528 Hz frequency is this great The Miracle Tone and Love Frequency “background music” from ZenLifeRelax; it’s said to heal DNA and activate, open, balance and heal your heart chakra. The recording is 8 HOURS long, so you could easily set this to play while you sleep or do your daily routine. When I first came across it on YouTube a number of months ago I let it run all day and loved having it going. I especially notice how nice my personal environment feels when I have something like this playing and go out for a while and then come back in. Almost feels like entering a sacred place/space.

If you want more of my picks for solfeggio tones and other health-enhancing music, visit the What’s New page of my website where you can download a pdf I’ve put together listing a variety of recordings to check out.

Great Overall Health, Detox And Cleanse Resource!

 

Wow, I came across this the other day when someone posted it on Facebook. Such a good, in-depth article about ways and means to be healthier. Some of the items mentioned have been featured on this blog (oil pulling, rebounding, lemon water, dry brushing, etc.), but this is a nice compilation of a lot of helpful information for improved health and well-being all in one place. One reason I am featuring it here is so I will always know where to find all the information myself. 🙂

 

23 Great Ways To Painlessly Cleanse Your Whole Body

by DREW CANOLE

A lot of people hear the word “detox” or “cleanse” and immediately have images of starvation and painful detox symptoms. In reality, there are a lot of things you can do on a daily basis to gently cleanse and nourish your body! In the long run, these habits can be more effective than intense short-term detox plans and for many, much more realistic.

 

1) Water

Water makes up more than half of your body weight. It is vital to every cell, organ, system and function that goes on in your body. It is especially important for the lymphatic system because it is what flushes your body of toxins and unneeded substances. Without the consistent flow of water coming in and out, your body will become like a stagnant puddle of water – yuck!

Start off your morning with a warm glass of fresh squeezed lemon water and – if you’re daring – add some baking soda. Both lemon and baking soda will normalize the pH of your body, are anti-carcinogenic, anti fungal, antibacterial and will pull toxins from your bloodstream. What better way to start off your morning?

For more info on lemon water and using structured water: 

Lemon Water: Better Than Lemonade

Structured Water: H2OMG!

 

2) Meditation

Cleansing the mind is just as important – if not more so – than cleansing the body. Meditation gives you a space to breathe and let go of racing thoughts and emotions. You can take five minutes to meditate, or 60 – whatever you feel you need. There are a lot of meditation aids online such as Alpha Waves, which plays music specifically formulated to help the mind relax and focus

mindfulness_519252dac41cf_w1500

 

3) Juicing with dandelion greens

Juicing is one of the most powerful ways to flood your tired body with micronutrients and flush out all the bad guys. Dandelions are a natural diuretic that help the kidneys filter through excess water and salt. They also cleanse the liver (one of your hardest working detox organs), are loaded with antioxidants, minerals and vitamins and act as an anti-inflammatory. We highly recommend adding dandelion greens to your juice or smoothies! Don’t have time to juice? Try our superfood-packed green drink powder Organifi.

 

4) Your Lymph System, Using DRY BRUSHING AND REBOUNDING

The Lymphatic System is an intricate network of nodes, ducts and vessels throughout your body that moves lymph from the body tissue to the bloodstream. Since it’s circulating through your body and is key to cleaning out toxins and waste, it’s an important point of focus when it comes to detoxification. A popular way to smooth out the flow of your lymph system is called dry brushing, which is the process of running a brush in specific, continuous, circular motions across your skin, upwards towards your heart. To ensure cleansing, add in some rebounding (physical aerobic activity) to your days to make your brushing efforts worthwhile (plus rebounding is fun!).

 

 

5) Hydrotherapy

After dry brushing, hop in the shower and alternate between 1-2 minutes of hot water and 30 seconds of cold. You can do this 3-5 times during your shower. If the cold is too unbearable at first, try lukewarm and work your way to cold. This type of hydrotherapy increases circulation and lymphatic flow, as well as boosts your immune system and metabolism. Once you get used to it, these shower cycles should actually feel pretty good!

 

6) Workout (qi gong)

Qi = life force and vital energy. Gong = accomplishment or skill. Qi Gong = Cultivating energy. It is an ancient Chinese health care system that uses physical postures, specific breathing techniques and mental focus to help cleanse the body and stimulate energy flow. It is one of the best ways to find relief from anxiety and cultivate inner peace. Even taking 10 minutes out of your day to do qi gong or a similar exercise will boost your productivity and mental performance.

Try it for yourself! Here’s how.

 

7) Stretching

We are always so busy going about our days tending to our responsibilities and obligations, that it’s easy to forget to stop and stretch out our body. Taking the time to stretch gives you the chance to ease out your tensed up muscles and keep your body functioning at a top-notch level. I’m sure you’ve noticed on occasion that while you’re sitting at a table or desk, your shoulders are hunched up. This causes all sorts of problems. Stretching is also a great way to rejuvenate your body and cleanse it through slow, steady motions and movements. These movements help increase the circulation throughout your body and stimulate the release of toxins.

8) Bone Broth In The AM

Bone broth is something your grandmother probably believed in (and she’s a smart lady!). This is an affordable, nutrient and mineral dense addition to anyone’s diet. It is particularly high in magnesium, calcium, amino acids and phosphorus and is believed to help reduce cellulite. You can use bones from beef, lamb, bison, fish, and birds. This is an immune boosting drink for when you’re sick and is also great for the digestive system.

 

9) Turn Off The News

CNN = Constant Negative News. The news is a money-making industry just like any other. Depressing and/or shocking news sells more than happy and uplifting news. Turn off the TV to cleanse your mind and clear your time for something more uplifting, like a walk outdoors or time with loved ones. If you are looking for drastic changes in your mental and physical health, try taking an entire week to do a media and electronics fast.

 

10) Sound Therapy

Because we are constantly surrounded by noise and disturbances, our ears start to become desensitized towards the higher pitched sound frequencies. This sort of therapy is designed to help restore that sensitivity again. When our sensitivity to sound frequencies grows dull, it also begins to decrease our energy, increases our irritability to sound and can be a contributor to other health issues. Here is an example of sound therapy for you to enjoy.

# 5 – I knew using a sauna offered health benefits, but I didn’t realize it could have such a big impact on heart health:

“The researchers found that compared with those who went to the sauna only once a week or less, those who went two to three times per week were 24 percent less likely to die from all causes, 22 percent less likely from sudden cardiac death, 23 percent less likely from coronary heart disease and 27 percent less likely from cardiovascular disease.

The risk reductions among those who made four to seven visits per week were dramatically higher: 40 percent (all causes), 66 percent (sudden cardiac death), 48 percent (coronary heart disease) and 50 percent (cardiovascular disease).

Length of sauna visit also had a striking impact. Compared with those with an average visit shorter than 11 minutes, those whose visits were 11 to 19 minutes long were 7 percent less likely to die from sudden cardiac death. Spending more than 19 minutes per visit reduced sudden cardiac death risk by a whopping 52 percent. Similar benefits were seen for death from cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease.”

Humming Your Way To Better Health….Plus, A Free 5-Day Epigenetics Event!

 

Can’t get much simpler or easier than improving your health with humming! Makes me glad I have a tendency to go around humming to myself all the time. Here’s some fascinating info about the power of “the hum” from Underground Health Reporter…..

 

Did You Know…

… that humming is good for your heart and mind?

Sound therapy has healed sick bodies and minds for thousands of years.  Himalayan singing bowls, chanting, and the humming of “Om” have been used for prayer and meditation, and have been shown to enhance relaxation and well-being.

Chances are you use sound therapy in your life without even realizing it.  A Prevention magazine survey revealed that 3 out of 4 people de-stress by listening to music, and 82% verified that they felt significant relief.

If you don’t have any music or singing bowls on hand, then just start humming!  Humming helps to ease any stress or tension you may be feeling and is good for your heart.  Studies suggest that humming can even help clear your sinuses.

Hum for Your Heart

Humming helps to reduce blood pressure and lower heart rate.  High blood pressure (hypertension) affects 1 in 3 Americans, many of whom don’t even realize they’re at risk.  Hypertension is called “the silent killer” because if left untreated it can cause kidney, heart, and brain damage.  Humming may help mitigate that risk.

A 2010 study from Nepal College Medical Journal showed that when people hummed “O-U-Mmma” blood pressure dropped significantly and heart rate decreased slightly in just 5 minutes.

Hum for Calm

Humming promotes a state of calm in two ways.  First, it increases the amount of oxygen we take in (stress depletes our bodies of oxygen).  Second, humming activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which in turn triggers the relaxation response.  The relaxation response relaxes muscles, slows heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and even optimizes digestion.

Try it for yourself.  See if when you hum the muscles in your face and jaw let go of tension, your shoulders relax, your belly loosens, your thoughts slow down, and your focus improves.

Hum for Your Sinuses

Sinusitis and other sinus diseases afflict approximately 14% of Americans.  Sinus problems can manifest as headaches, digestive disorders, and pain in the inflamed area around the nose. Research has shown that humming can unblock obstructions in the sinuses.  When these blockages are loosened up, nitric oxide can flow easier.  Nitric oxide is essential for proper sinus function because it helps dilute the capillary beds and improve blood flow.  Scientists also believe that humming helps to lengthen the exhalations of our breath, which gives the body more time to breathe in ample oxygen.

It’s All About the Vibration
According to sound therapy practitioners, everything is made up of vibration, including your body.  Disease occurs when the body’s natural vibration is thrown off tune.  Sound therapy attempts to correct imbalanced vibration, and has been used as a complementary alternative medicine to treat both physical and mental ailments.  Here are just a few:
Fertility complications
IBS
Cancer symptoms
Chronic pain
Arthritis
Anxiety
Depression
Parkinson’s disease
Hormonal imbalancesIt doesn’t matter if you hum a tune or a single note like “Om.”  The trick is tapping into the vibration of the hum to fine-tune the rhythms and resonance in your body.

Science Confirms Music Is A Multi-purpose Health Aid

 

They say that music can “soothe the savage beast,” and I’ve always known listening to certain pieces of music was “good for my soul,” and that listening to the Mozart Effect albums had multiple benefits for my mind and body. But I didn’t realize music came with all the pluses mentioned in this article from BodyMindSoulSpirit.com…..

 

15 Amazing Effects Music Has On Your Health - Backed By Science

by Eevee G

Many people don’t know this, but listening to music is not just something that brings joy, it can also improve your health in a variety of ways and scientists have proven that through many researches. Read on to find how music can make your life more awesome.

Helps you sleep better

Music contributes for a healthy sleep. Researchers have found that classical music can help us deal with insomnia, especially college students. This is definitely a healthier and much cheaper fix for your sleeping disorder than taking pills.

Fights stress

It is no surprise that listening to music helps relieve stress from your shoulders. Studies have found that music stimulates biochemical stress reducers, which helps us feel more relaxed.

Helps you get in touch with yourself

As it puts us in a better mood, music helps us get in touch with our emotions, a 2013 study suggests. The participants marked “self-awareness” as one of the most important advantages of music.

It relieves pain

Music has the ability to decrease the intensity of pain. It activates sensory pathways that fight pain pathways and takes a person’s attention away from the pain.

Fights anxiety

When we are feeling anxious, listening to music can help us fight it as it has the same effect on the brain as a massage has on the body.

Acts as a motivator for bikers and runners.

College students conducted research and proved that the people who rode stationary bicycles were able to work harder while they were listening to fast music compared to those who weren’t listening to any music during the experiment. If you are like me and prefer running, listening to your favorite songs can help you beat your personal records and even strengthen your endurance. Long story short, music helps you perform better during your workouts and also makes them a lot more enjoyable.

Helps you recover faster after a workout

It’s proven that your body recovers faster after a hard workout when you are listening to your favorite music.

Fights sadness

Researchers have found that music can successfully fight symptoms of depression, but the genre is very important. Classical and meditation music can boost your mood when you are feeling down,  but listening to heavy metal or techno music won’t help that much with chasing away the bad thoughts.

Personal note: I’ve read studies where some of the heavy metal music actually has a negative effect on health and mood.

Helps the function of the blood vessels

Science has proven that the emotions that people have while listening to music contribute to healthier functions of blood vessels. As music makes you feel happier, it boosts the blood flow in your blood vessels.

Helps with stroke recovery

A Finnish study found that if stroke patients listened to music for 2 hours a day, they recover faster. Not only their moods improve, but also their verbal abilities and attention span, too.

Improves performance in high-pressure experiences

Fast music can help you fight stress before a high-pressure experience—an important game, for example. Research have proven that listening to fast music just before a basketball game helped players relieve the stress and perform better.

Makes you mindful while you eat

Playing some music in the background is proven to help people slow down and enjoy their feeding process. This makes them more aware of what they are consuming and really tasting the food, rather than eating quickly, which leaves them feeling hungry and dissatisfied with the meal.

Improves cognitive functions 

Playing background music while working on tasks that need your mental focus can boost your performance. Research has found that music can boost one’s cognitive abilities, but only if it has the same effect on the emotional state.

Music can get you into a state similar to meditation

Slow music can have an effect on the speed of your brainwaves and makes them similar to someone who is in a meditative or hypnotic state. This can have a healing effect, as it eases the symptoms of PMS and behavioral issues.

Eases patients going through a surgery  

Research discovered that when patients are played music just before cardiovascular surgery, they start feeling less worried. Moreover, music reduces the stress after the surgery, if it is played while the patients are resting in their beds.

It doesn’t matter what the music of your choice is. The information above has probably assured you that music will not only bring joy and inspiration to your life, but is a great source of health as well.

Great Multi-purpose Health Aid…..With Fur! :-)

This post includes an article I came across awhile ago and found absolutely fascinating. As a cat lover (dogs, too!), I always knew petting them made me feel peaceful and open-hearted. But I had no idea there were so many other health benefits and that there was all this other interesting stuff going on with cats. Makes me love them even more!

CAT PURR HEALS BONES!

Dr. David Williams, the American medical researcher, biochemist and chiropractor, recently wrote about some fascinating research from the Fauna Communications Research Institute in Hillsborough, North Carolina, a group devoted to animal acoustical sounds, who decided to investigate the very fundamental question of exactly why cats purr.

Survival mechanism

Although most of us believe cats purr to give voice to joy or contentment, cats also purr when they are under stress – when they are caged, or injured, or even during the rigors of birth. In these circumstances, it stands to reason that purring was invented for a larger purpose than just happy noises. Purring, a sound involving both the larynx and the diaphragm, requires a lot from a cat. As the Fauna researchers put it: ‘When was the last time you heard someone singing, or humming to themselves . . .when they were in the emergency room with a broken leg? The purr has to be somehow involved with survival.’
After recording the purring of all manner of cats, from domestic cats to cheetahs and ocelots at the Cincinnati Zoo, the researchers discovered something untoward. The dominant frequency for all the big and small cats besides the cheetah was 25 Hz or 50 Hz – the same frequencies that are optimal for bone growth or repair – although cats seem to be able to ramp up the range to 140 Hz. In their paper, presented at an International Conference on Low Frequency Noise and Vibration in Bristol, the UK, in 2006, the North Carolina researchers said, these various purr frequencies exactly ‘correspond to vibrational/electrical frequencies used in treatment for bone growth/fractures, pain, edema, muscle growth/strain, joint flexibility, dyspnea, and wounds.’ Studies show that frequencies of 25 and 50 hertz promote bone strength by 20 per cent and stimulate fractions to heal faster. Other low frequencies help to heal muscles and alleviate acute and chronic pain, heal wounds, repair tendons, make joints more mobile, and even aid and regulate breathing.

Nine lives
So, the researchers wondered, is purring some sort of in-built frequency modulator to aid self-healing, the reason for the ancient adage that ‘cats always land on their feet’? Researchers from New York’s Animal Medical Center examined this phenomenon —what vets call ‘high-rise syndrome’ — by studying 132 cats who’d fallen at least five and a half stories from high-rise buildings. Although the cats had all manner of trauma, contusions and fractures, emergency treatment was required for less than a third of the cats, mostly for shock and trauma to the chest. Another third had simple non-emergency care and the final third, nothing at all. Astonishingly, 90 per cent of the treated cats survived their gigantic fall. Another old adage from vets is, ‘Put a cat in a room with a bunch of broken bones and the bones will heal.’ Although cats get osteoarthritis, they don’t have the high level of lameness that dogs do. In one recent study in Veterinary Record, nearly a third of cats had signs of degenerative joint disease, and 16 per cent had joint osteoarthritis. Nevertheless, of 218 cats, only six had clinical signs of lameness. Cats also rarely suffer from many bone illnesses, like bone cancer. Problems after surgery also occur far less in cats than according to one study, where dogs had problems 19 per cent of the time, and cats only 12 per cent.‘By changing the frequency of their purring, cats may be fine-tuning their healing abilities,’ said Williams.
Better than Reiki
I shared this story with Sharyn, my production editor for What Doctors Don’t Tell You, who is also a Reiki practitioner and an ardent cat lover. Sharyn’s cat Egg loves heights and has no fear of falling. Twice she fell off her balcony two stories to the ground, after which she began to limp on both front paws. Sharyn gave her Reiki three times. ‘She just curled up and purred away happily,’ Sharyn wrote me. ‘Her limping cleared within days. And here I thought I had healed Egg’s limping with my Reiki!’ The interesting question is what this means for we humans when we’re in close proximity to cats. Williams claims to know people who say they rid themselves of migraines by lying down right next to a purring cat. Sharyn says she noticed something else strange. ‘When either of the cats rests on or near my wristwatch for at least a half hour —say when watching TV — my watch has stopped. I wonder if it has to do with an electromagnetic-field-cancelling effect, which somehow can also interfere with watches — in my case a self-winding one? Maybe felines were put on this earth to remind us of what to do when the going gets tough: just put your lips together and … purr!
 
And here’s more from thewayfarer.com….
Norwegian Forest Cat

……purring is often compared to the dhikr, the rhythmic chanting of the Sufis , which is used in many early Islamic hospitals as a healing process. Modern science recently discovered the healing powers of the cats’ purr: “…optimal frequency for bone stimulation is 50 hertz. The dominant and fundamental frequency for three species of cats’ purr is exactly 25 to 50 hertz: the best frequencies for bone growth and fracture healing. The cat’s purr falls well within the 20-50 hertz anabolic range, and extends up to 140 hertz .” (healing section)

Dr. Clinton Rubin and his associates made a fantastic discovery. They found that exposure to frequencies between 20-50 Hz (at low dB) creates the robust striations of increased bone density.

Healing by association – Suhba and Cats can Improve Your Mood

But it’s the cat’s “healing by association” that most people find interesting: that ability of a cat to sympathetically help cure illnesses in people simply by being around them. Studies have also shown that owners, especially senior citizens, who have cats have lower blood pressure and can live longer than humans who don’t own pets.

The warmth of their furry bodies and open, purring friendship can drastically influence a person’s state of mind for the better. Vital signs taken after an individual’s interaction with a pet show positive effects on the blood pressure, pulse, and breathing frequency, and the results of these tests are surprisingly similar to the body’s condition after deep meditation. Some studies have even indicated that having pets reduces stress and results in a lowered risk of heart disease.

Many individuals swear they can ease or completely eliminate their migraine headaches simply by lying down with a purring cat next to their head. Can’t hit that minimum recommended daily dose of bone-enriching calcium? Maybe grabbing the nearest cat and holding it close may just prove to be the answer to brittle-bones. Having surgery? Perhaps after coming home, keeping a cat nearby will reduce your recovery time. So, go get a cat. Keep it happy and purring. You’re both likely to be healthier and you’ll have a great friend who truly understands how you’re feeling.

Doctors and scientists in a number of different medical fields are researching the healing properties of sound, and the results are pretty promising. Most body cavities and tissues have their own resonant frequencies, and sound in those ranges can stimulate the respective organs to heal. For example: the human lungs resonate at around 39 hertz (in a fluid medium) and researchers found sound at that frequency to be beneficial to people with lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis.

Vibrational stimulation not only relieves suffering in 82% of persons suffering from acute and chronic pain but also generates new tissue growth, augments wound tissue strength, improves local circulation and oxygenation, reduces swelling and/or inhibits bacterial growth?

Lowered stress and increased calmness could be the cause, but studies over the last twenty years have also shown that people who own pets are much healthier than their non-pet owning counterparts; they are often less-prone to minor illnesses like colds and influenza, score better on psychological tests, and claim to feel a greater sense of well-being

Adults are not the only ones who benefit from caring for a cat. Children who have participated in the raising of a pet have shown higher self esteem levels, better social skills, and a greater sense of responsibility toward others. For young children and infants, exposure to cats at a young age can also help the child develop resistance to allergens and asthma.

A new study suggests cat owners are less likely to die of a heart attack or stroke than people who, well, don’t own cats. Researchers, found that feline-less people were 30 to 40 percent more likely to die of cardiovascular disease than those with cats.

And here’s where you can find out about ordering a 33 minute CD of the purring 25- 50 hertz frequencies that help regenerate bone:

 

PERSONAL NOTE: I read somewhere that a cat’s purr registers at around 500 on David Hawkins’ (author of Power vs Force) vibrational frequency scale, which is in the same range as unconditional love, if I remember correctly. Maybe the purr has such a healing effect because it corresponds with that frequency??! It may also explain why petting a cat and hearing him/her purr naturally makes me feel more loving.
