More and more frequently, cancer patients are looking to alternative medicine practices to promote and improve healing. Alternative treatments vary, from ancient remedies to modern-day biotechnology. One of the newest treatments is sound therapy, which is a methodology based on the analysis of the patient's voice patterns. Mesothelioma lawyers highlight these alternative treatments, many of which have improved patients' quality of life and extended survival time when used in conjunction with conventional treatments.
Sound therapy is rooted in the work or Dr. Hans Jenny, who authored a book in 1967 that formed the foundations for modern sound therapy. In his book, Cymatics - The Structure and Dynamics of Waves and Vibration, Dr. Jenny explained what occurs when organic materials, such as sand or water, were situated on vibrating metal plates. Each material produced a unique shape when placed on the metal plates, and, with a tonoscope, the metal plates were able to move so he could control the rate of vibration. The tonoscope also enabled the human voice to become visible, creating an image of each tone or vowel sound.
Dr. Jenny hypothesized that biological evolution, including human vitality, was caused by these sound vibrations, and that the key to understanding how to heal the human body lay in the different frequencies. Modern practitioners of cymatic therapy believe that these frequencies can rearrange molecules in the body to promote healing.
The voice is analyzed in sound therapy because it provides an analog for bodily systems that may be deficient. Tracing and monitoring the voice enables sound therapists to gather information about patients' body frequencies that relate to physical and emotional health and balance. Each individual's voice provides a roadmap, so to speak, which can then be compared to healthy frequency assignments of amino acids, bones, minerals, muscles, vitamins, and a number of other substances.
Once these frequency deficiencies are identified, a Bio-Resonance Therapy regimen can be created. This type of therapy can be found in schools, hospitals, offices, and psychological therapy regimens. Bio-Resonance Therapy uses a tonebox to generate low-frequency wavelengths, which are delivered through headphones, a vibration transducer, or a sub-woofer. These waveforms active minerals, amino acids, and other biological substances, to detoxify and balance the bodily systems.
The significance of sound waves in the human body is not unlike that of light frequencies. Most are aware of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is a depression that occurs in patients at the same time each year. Sunlight, similar to sound waves, administers certain vitamins and minerals into the human body. In the fall and winter, many people experience a lack of Vitamin D along with a drop in serotonin and melatonin levels from lack of sunlight. SAD is most often treated with light therapy, which is similar to sound therapy, and is accepted as a first-line medical treatment by renowned institutions such as the Mayo Clinic.
Most people are deficient in certain tones, just as those suffering from SAD are deficient in Vitamin D, melatonin, and serotonin. Sound and light can act as vitamins and minerals in the body, and by tracing deficiencies through voice monitoring, sound therapists are able to determine what frequencies will best correspond in your body.
In this way, the body can better and more efficiently heal and balance itself through activation of the healing control center of the brain. Sound is one of the most primal senses, and is rooted deep within the brain. In fact, it is the first sense to be developed in utero, and the last to be lost in death. Research into sound and its therapeutic effects continue to be studied to this day, and have expanded to include Bio-Resonance and vibrational therapy.
Mesothelioma patients often experience numerous adverse health effects from chemotherapy, radiation, and other standard forms of cancer treatment. The benefits and successes of alternative treatments are growing, as more and more research is conducted into these methods. Mesothelioma lawyers at Pintas & Mullins hope that victims of asbestos exposure consider seeking alternative therapies. If you or someone you love was diagnosed with mesothelioma, or any other asbestos-related illness, you may be entitled to compensation, and should contact an asbestos exposure attorney immediately for a free legal consultation.
