Very soon I will have my third offering available, a video lecture for expecting parents titled The Purposeful Use of Music From Pregnancy Through Toddlerhood (including Labor and Delivery). The main thrust of this information will be to support moms (and dads) as they put together their own music listening playlists or CDs to support rhythmic breathing, act as a positive diversion from pain and stress, etc., to be used during labor and delivery.
For this weeks post I want to continue explaining, one by one, the 14 music research areas introduced in part one. I refer to this information piece often and address it's content specifically in the upcoming video lecture The Purposeful Use of Music From Pregnancy Through Toddlerhood...
So lets continue with #s 7, 8, and 9!!!

RELATED MUSIC RESEARCH AREAS
Music has been clinically proven to:
Similar to the music research on stress, after individuals listened to personally chosen, preferred music, the above mentioned enzymes that boost immune response were produced and measured.
8. AID IN TISSUE REGENERATION (repair)
This research, called "cymatics" or the science of sound and vibrational healing, was first conducted by Hans Jenny, a Swiss physician and natural scientist. Simply explained, he found that when a powdery substance spread on a taught, rubber membrane was subjected to sound (vibrations) it vibrated into tissue like, cellular like structures. Therapy apparatus' have since been developed, using sound, for ligament and tissue repair. ***See this article about cymatics.
9. AID IN SURGERY SETTINGS BY: DECREASING THE AMOUNT OF ANESTHESIA NEEDED; DECREASING BLEEDING AND SPEEDING UP RECOVERY TIME
First, referring back to #3, i.e., "music has been clinically proven to - increase the positive effects of medications.." for medication to benefit us it has to be properly absorbed. And for absorption to be maximized it has to stay in our system and/or gut the longest amount of time possible. So, when we can be more relaxed, medications will stay in our system longer. When meds stay in our system longer more will be absorbed. When more is readily absorbed they become more effective. When they are more effective less medication is required. When less medication is given side effects are minimized and recovery time is sped up. It doesn't matter what we do to relax, but music is a great way to do it.
Decreased bleeding occurs when an individual relaxes. For example, a relaxation response causes decreased heart rate therefore decreased bleeding.
In upcoming posts I will continue explaining the research items listed on the MT Research Sheet located in the Resource Center, lower left of the home page, at musicfromthestart.com.
My prescription this week??? Again, grab the free download of "Lyrical Imagery" or “High 5” and listen to your favorite music and enjoy!!!!
