Binaural Beats – The Power Of Sound

More and more doctors, researchers, and scientists are looking into the field of sound therapy especially bio-resonance therapy and the use of binaural beats.

To really understand binaural beats and bio-resonance therapy, we first need to discuss the healing power of sound. Although the creation of binaural beats has only been possible through advancements in technology in the last few decades or so, the use of this natural science dates back thousands of years.

Ancient cultures were aware of how the brain could be entrained through sound repetition well before modern science was able to prove the process. This phenomenon didn’t have a fancy name like binaural beats and bio-resonance therapy, but what was known was that consistent, rhythmic sound had extremely powerful healing and spiritual benefits. For example: through the use of repetitive drumming and chanting, Tibetan monks, Native American shamans, Hindu healers, and master Yogis have been able to induce specific brainwave states for transcending consciousness, healing, concentration, and spiritual growth.

What is the definition of sound?

Continuous and regular vibrations that travel through a medium until it reaches a person’s ear and is then registered in the brain as a sound. Different levels of sound vibrate at different frequencies. High pitched sounds vibrate much faster than low pitched sounds. What ancient cultures knew is that exposing someone to this external stimulus of vibrations will eventually lead to a rhythmic synchronization of physiological or behavioral events. How does this work exactly? According to quantum physics, all matter including physical matter, the human body, and the entire universe is vibrating at certain frequencies and joined together by magnetic forces. Every atom that makes us who we are, every cell in the body and the brain is vibrating at a certain frequency. When you introduce a sound, over a period of time the two frequencies (of the sound and the cells) will begin to synchronize.

One important experiment in this field was done during the early 1990’s Dr. Emoto, a Japanese scientist and researcher discovered that human consciousness and sound have an effect on the molecular structure of water.

He discovered this by exposing water molecules to different words and music.

He then took pictures of the water molecules and viewed them under a microscope and found something extraordinary. He found that all the water samples that had been exposed to positive words and relaxing music (“I love you”, “you are beautiful” and Mozart for example) made beautiful, intricate, symmetrical shapes and patterns. And the water samples that were exposed to angry words and disturbing music (for example “I hate you” and heavy metal) created distorted and disharmonious shapes. Proving that water is directly affected by outside influences like sound vibration frequencies, therefore humans, which are 70% water, are affected too. So now we have scientific proof of what ancient cultures already knew, that sound can influence physical matter.

Bioresonance therapy and binaural beats take this information and use it to heal.

This concept has been mostly used in Europe for years as an emerging form of soundwave therapy in which the left and the right ear listen to two slightly different tones at different frequencies. The brain perceives the two tones as one and cells within the brain and body will begin to synchronize with the frequency being perceived. For example, if the left ear registers a tone at 200 Hz and the right at 210 Hz, the binaural beat heard is the mathematical difference between the two frequencies – 10 Hz. After a period of about 15-30 minutes, the cells will vibrate at a frequency of 10 Hz. Why would we want to do this? Researchers believe that certain binaural beats activate specific systems within the brain and the brain can create new neural pathways within itself, which improves the communication between different areas of the brain that previously were not talking, and this leads to increased efficiency. An electroencephalogram (EEG) that recorded the electrical brain activity of people listening to binaural beats showed that the effect on a person’s body varied according to the frequency pattern used.

binaural beats - how they work

There are 5 main brainwave frequency patterns: delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma.

With delta vibrating at the lowest frequency and increasing to gamma. The root of all our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors come from our brainwaves so let’s take a look at each one of these to see the benefits:

  1. Delta: has a frequency of 0.1 and 4 Hz, and is associated with dreamless sleep, or deep meditation. This is the most beneficial because healing and regeneration are generated in this state, which is why deep restorative sleep is so important to the healing process. DNA stimulation, nerve and cellular regeneration, pain and inflammation relief, decrease in cortisol (stress hormone) increase in DHEA (anti-aging and disease resisting hormone) all occur with delta brainwaves.
  2. Theta: has a frequency of between 4 and 8 Hz, and is associated with REM sleep. These waves occur most often during sleep and meditation and are associated with learning, memory and intuition, deep relaxation and inner peace and stimulation of creativity.
  3. Alpha: has a frequency between 8 and 13 Hz, these waves dominate in quiet flowing thoughts or light mediation, it is the resting state of the brain and aids mental coordination, calmness, alertness, mind/body integration and learning, positive thinking and stress reduction.
  4. Beta: has a frequency of between 14 Hz and 30 Hz, and these waves dominate our normal waking state of consciousness. Beta waves are active when we are alert, focused, attentive, engaged in problem-solving, judgment, decision making, and analytical thinking. Close to 30 Hz is associated with highly complex thought, integrating new experiences, high anxiety, or excitement.

    Continual high-frequency processing is not a very efficient way to run the brain, as it takes a tremendous amount of energy and can lead to anxiety.

  5. Gamma: has a frequency of 30 Hz to 100 Hz, these waves are associated with high-level information processing, cognitive enhancement, and peak awareness. These waves are above the frequency of neuronal firing, so how it is generated remains a mystery, but scientists have discovered it was highly active when in states of universal love, altruism, and the ‘higher virtues’. It is speculated that gamma rhythms modulate perception and consciousness and that a greater presence of gamma relates to expanded consciousness, spiritual emergence, and transcendental states.

You can see by these two images above how the brainwaves become more organized and functional and how the two hemispheres of the brain begin to communicate with each other after listening to theta waves for just 15-25 minutes.

Now how can we use this science to help cancer patients? A man named Anthony Holland has the answer.

Anthony Holland is an Associate Professor and Director of Music at Skidmore College in New York. He also is a researcher who uses the power of frequency to heal cancer. Holland and a team of cancer researchers discovered what’s called the destructive resonant frequency. Think of how someone can shatter a crystal glass with high pitched noise. Someone would have to match the vibration frequency of the glass, and then slightly raise and raise their vibration frequency until the glass shatters. Holland and his team thought that if this can be done to glass, why not living microorganisms? After all, we already know that living organisms are all vibrating at a certain frequency and these frequencies can be changed with certain signals. Holland and his team found that you need two different frequencies with one being eleven times higher than the second frequency and set from 100,000-300,000 Hz will actually cause cancer cells to disintegrate. They applied their science to cancer patients with leukemia and found that not only did it kill 25-42% of cancer cells (up to 60% in some cases) but that it also slowed the rate of cancer growth by 65%.

They also managed to shrink tumors in patients with pancreatic and liver cancer.

This study was presented in the late 2000s and more research is needed before it potentially becomes therapy for cancer patients. Below is a sequence of images showing the effects of the destructive resonant frequency on leukemia cells. In the first picture, you see a group of 3 leukemia cells, and by the last picture, you can see them begin to disintegrate.

Different cells resonate at different frequencies, so we can specifically target and neutralize frequencies of toxins, bacteria, parasites, and even cancer cells while not harming normal cells since they are vibrating at a different frequency. Conventional medicine leads to drug resistance, side effects, dependency, and over medication which can cause other chronic conditions and possibly requiring even more medication. This instead, is a wonderful non-invasive, drug-free therapy with no side effects, making it very safe for at-risk patients, children, and even animals. This therapy provides hope in the field of cancer as well as many other diseases and mental illnesses.
