Scripture speaks of spiritual songs in Ephesians 5:19, “Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” Notice that sound is directed out of the state of the heart. Luke 6:45 says, “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” Scientific studies continue to document the health benefits of particular sounds.
Sound therapy, also known as vibrational therapy, is performed through a variety of modalities. Therapeutic sounds may be generated by the human voice, various instruments, singing bowls, tuning forks, computer-generated frequencies, etc. Typically, sound therapy is used for inducing a state of relaxation. Although, relaxation is just one of the many benefits of sound therapy.
Vibrations may be used to cancel incoherent frequencies from a wide range of emotional states that are out of balance. When sound waves are heard, they are converted into electrical signals that travel up the auditory nerve into the auditory cortex, the part of the brain that processes sound. Once sound waves reach the brain, they trigger a wide range of regulatory responses.
Taking a look at sound expressed through a cymascope, it is obvious that sound is multidimensional and each musical note is very diverse.

Music Notes C and G
The music notes C and G (a perfect 5th interval based on Pythagorean Math), when used simultaneously, are well known for balancing the body’s nervous system, especially the vagus nerve. Over 50 years ago Dr. John Beaulieu, a well-known sound therapist, discovered the benefits of the C and G notes used simultaneously in resolving his own back pain. The bones of the body seem to be connected by the same mathematic equation as the 5th interval. It has been repeatedly observed that by playing C and G tuning forks simultaneously bone connectedness strengthens and the nervous system balances.
The following article explains how pain is anesthetized by blocking sound impulses. Nerve pain is often resolved by balancing the nerve impulses with sound therapy.
Danish scientists challenge the accepted scientific views of how nerves function and of how anesthetics work. Their research suggests that action of nerves is based on sound pulses and that anesthetics inhibit their transmission.
Every medical and biological textbook says that nerves function by sending electrical impulses along their length. “But for us as physicists, this cannot be the explanation. The physical laws of thermodynamics tell us that electrical impulses must produce heat as they travel along the nerve, but experiments find that no such heat is produced,” says associate professor Thomas Heimburg from the Niels Bohr Institute at Copenhagen University. He received his Ph.D. from the Max Planck Institute in Göttingen, Germany, where biologists and physicists often work together – at most institutions these disciplines are worlds apart. Thomas Heimburg is an expert in biophysics, and when he came to Copenhagen, he met professor Andrew D. Jackson, who is an expert in theoretical physics. They decided to work together in order to study the basic mechanisms which govern the way nerves work.
Physics Explains Biology
Nerves are ‘wrapped’ in a membrane composed of lipids and proteins. According to the traditional explanation of molecular biology, a pulse is sent from one end of the nerve to the other with the help of electrically charged salts that pass through ion channels in the membrane. It has taken many years to understand this complicated process, and a number of the scientists involved in the task have been awarded the Nobel Prize for their efforts. But – according to the physicists – the fact that the nerve pulse does not produce heat contradicts the molecular biological theory of an electrical impulse produced by chemical processes. Instead, nerve pulses can be explained much more simply as a mechanical pulse according to the two physicists. And such a pulse could be sound. Normally, sound propagates as a wave that spreads out and becomes weaker and weaker. If, however, the medium in which the sound propagates has the right properties, it is possible to create localized sound pulses, known as “solitons”, which propagate without spreading and without changing their shape or losing their strength.
The membrane of the nerve is composed of lipids, a material that is similar to olive oil. This material can change its state from liquid to solid with temperature. The freezing point of water can be lowered by the addition of salt. Likewise, molecules that dissolve in membranes can lower the freezing point of membranes. The scientists found that the nerve membrane has a freezing point, which is precisely suited to the propagation of these concentrated sound pulses. Their theoretical calculations lead them to the same conclusion: Nerve pulses are sound pulses.
Anesthetized by Sound
How can one anesthetize a nerve so that feel ceases and it is possible to operate on a patient without pain? It has been known for more than 100 years that substances like ether, laughing gas, chloroform, procaine and the noble gas xenon can serve as anesthetics. The molecules of these substances have very different sizes and chemical properties, but experience shows that their doses are strictly determined by their solubility in olive oil. Current expertise is so advanced that it is possible to calculate precisely how much of a given material is required for the patient. In spite of this, no one knows precisely how anesthetics work. How are the nerves “turned off”? Starting from their theory that nerve signals are sound pulses, Thomas Heimburg and Andrew D.
Jackson turned their attention to anesthesia. The chemical properties of anesthetics are all so different, but their effects are all the same – curious!
But the curious turned out to be simple. If a nerve is to be able to transport sound pulses and send signals along the nerve, its membrane must have the property that its melting point is sufficiently close to body temperature and responds appropriately to changes in pressure. The effect of anesthetics is simply to change the melting point – and when the melting point has been changed, sound pulses cannot propagate. The nerve is put on stand-by, and neither nerve pulses nor sensations are transmitted. The patient is anesthetized and feels nothing.
