The JAMA Article (Nov. 5, 2013) – “Testosterone Treatment
 Causes Heart Attacks” gave me concern. Hopefully the media’s portrayal of this flawed study will not discourage aging men from properly restoring their testosterone levels. In order to protect against heart…

500px-Binaural_beats.svg“Binaural Beats,” the term used for music with slightly different frequencies in each ear. The difference in these frequencies, or beats, elicits beneficial brain waves by releasing healthy neurotransmitters. So, in addition to drugs (antidepressants, energizers, and sleep aids), binaural music can help stress related or genetically endowed syndromes, such as insufficient sleep, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, dyslexia, and ADHD. Improved memory, learning, concentration, and creativity can be heightened with this technique.

By varying the difference of the frequencies in each individual ear, the brain wave frequency can be varied from 0 to 100 Hertz, and accordingly affect various parts of the brain. Neurotransmitters such as serotonin (which promotes relaxation and aids eating), noradrenalin (which promotes memory and physical performance), dopamine (which affects coordination and addictions), and acetycholine (which promotes memory with its various expressions) are increased or decreased. If the frequency was 410Hz in the left ear and 400Hz in the other, they would have a 10 beat difference, mimicking the Alpha state. But since the rhythm is the same, and there is such a small difference in pitch, the listener simply hears the music.

If this is performed while asleep, without the chatter of the external environment, the exchange can be enhanced fivefold. Stephen Halpern and Aeoliah (a Stage name) are both PhDs in music and psychology. They are both widely acknowledged as composers of music for health and healing. These pioneers of sound health brought the art and science of healing music into the field of complementary/integrative medicine and to the main- stream public through best-selling recordings. Unlike Binaural Music, one can listen without the need for ear buds.

This technique can help us to go from the deepest Delta wave (0 to 4 H), to the moderately deep Theta dream sleep (4 to 8 H), to the twilight Alpha (8 to 14 H), and the alert Beta (15 to 100 H) state. It is in the Delta state that super learning occurs and the youth-giving human growth hormone is released. There are applications for the iPhone for $1.99 that, with ear buds, can inspire you to creativity or mindful meditation and dream-filled sleep. Altered State and AmbiSci are two of the many apps offered. CDs are also available that can easily be put into a player with the
same effect. (See LifeProgram.com.) For your mental and physical health, consider the music that heals.
