Energy Medicine
The most fundamental aspect of energy medicine is based on the theory of the body’s biofield and resonant vibrations. The biofield of the human body is described as “the complex, extremely weak electromagnetic field of the organism hypothesized to involve electromagnetic bioinformation for regulating homeodynamics” (Beverly). The biofield gives an insight into why energy medicine in the form of electromagnetics, vibrations, sound, and light as well as other modalities like acupuncture and kinesiology have been shown to be therapeutic. When the body is in perfect health then the resonant vibratory energy of the body is normal. When the body is unhealthy the resonant vibratory energy of the body becomes negative. Energy medicine can take a negative resonating body and bring it back into harmonic resonance. http://mywavesforlife.com/energy-medicine/

The most fundamental aspect of energy medicine is based on the theory of the body’s biofield.

The biofield gives an insight into why energy medicine and other modalities such as acupuncture and kinesiology have been shown to be therapeutic. Energy medicine comes in different forms such as, electricity, magnetic, sound, and light. Beverly Rubik. The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. July 2004, 8(6): 703-717.

Sound waves have been used to reduce stress, anxiety, pain and blood pressure with various condition and medical treatments including abdominal hysterectomies, dialysis treatment, myocardial infraction patients, children before surgery, and during colorectal surgery. Sound therapy induced relaxation: down regulating stress processes and pathologies as well as stimulating the release of nitric oxide.  Elliott Salamon, Minsun Kim, John Beaulieu, George B Stefano Med Sci Monit 2003; 9(5): RA96-0

Sound frequency treatments were associated with disappearing of overnight foot pain, feet feeling lighter, feeling refreshed, better daily functioning, decreased blood pressure and increased social interaction. Zheng, A., et al. “Effects of a low-frequency sound wave therapy programme on functional capacity, blood circulation and bone metabolism in frail old men and women.” Clinical rehabilitation 23.10 (2009): 897-908.

Sound waves stimulated the expression and distribution of glial fibrillary acidic protein or GFAP in the brain which provide support and strength to cells. (https://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/gene/GFAP).

Sound frequency treatment on osteogenesis. Test showed bone to heal much nicer with a smoother finish and better modeling. Bone mineral content and bone density was increased. Tests also showed an increase in Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide. Long, Hua, et al. “Study on osteogenesis promoted by low sound pressure level infrasound in vivo and some underlying mechanisms.” Environmental toxicology and pharmacology 36.2 (2013): 437-442.

Sound waves shown to control appetite. GUO, Xiao-yan, Jin-hai WANG, and Lei DONG. “Effect of Infrasound on the Level of Peptide YY in Rat Intestinal Mucosa.” Chinese Journal of Rehabilitation 5 (2007): 004.

Sound waves inhibit apoptosis in bone marrow stem cells.  Effects of infrasound on the growth of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells: A pilot study Authors: Renhong He Jianzhong Fan Published online on: Thursday, August 21, 2014 Pages:2427-2432 DOI: 10.3892/mmr.2014.2508

Sound waves seen to cause structural changes within the cells, like shortening of microvilli. Microvilli are external microstructures on the cell wall which allow for increased cell surface for absorption and various other cellular functions. The shortening of the microvilli may lead to an inhibition of cell function. Bao, Y., et al. “Effects of infrasound therapy on proliferation, apoptosis and ultrastructure of human B lymphoma Raji cells.” Nan fang yi ke da xue xue bao= Journal of Southern Medical University 28.6 (2008): 1093-1095.

Sound waves shown to induce a parasympathetic state and inhibit norepinephrine. Spyraki, Ch, Z. Papadopoulou-Daifoti, and A. Petounis. “Norepinephrine levels in rat brain after infrasound exposure.” Physiology & behavior 21.3 (1978): 447-448.

Non-audible sound has a positive effect on sleep patterns. Okada, Akira, and Ryoichi Inaba. “Comparative study of the effects of infrasound and low-frequency sound with those of audible sound on sleep.” Environment International 16.4-6 (1990): 483-490.
