Sounds that feed the brain power


"Some of the sounds are not worse than a couple of cups of coffee," - says the eminent French specialist in the study of hearing  Alfred Tomatis.

This means that we can use music as a tonic.

From a time when humanity first created the music, she served as his daily goals.Lullabies, military, naval songs - the list is as long as the history and culture.

Today, high-tech high-tech method Tomatis discovered the innate power of sound, force, which actually has a "superpower" to increase mental abilities, healing and energizing. 

According to Tomatis, the "sound, can be an extraordinary source of energy." Today, in his seventy years, he was still energetic enough for him to sleep three or four hours a day, because when it works, as the background music sounds special. Tomatis but not closed only on energizing music.

Within two years he carried out special measurements using sophisticated equipment to find out how different sound frequencies affect people: which supply it with energy and what takes it from him.

And how does this happen? He came to a startling discovery. "The ear is designed not only to hear - publicly stated Tomatis - ear is designed to energize the mind and body" 

You get the energy through your ears? When Tomatis experimented with the music of Bach, Mozart, Gregorian compositions, his readings of scientific instruments were that tired, tired and weakened by stress occur when the gray cells of your brain get enough electricity. In other words, they do not have enough power. 

Tomatis claims that these cells work like small electric batteries. They produce electricity in your brain, providing them the brain waves, which are recorded in the EEG. You might think that these small batteries charged by the metabolism of the body. Not quite, says Tomatis. And just this is its main achievement. 

Your cell battery charging anything from the outside, and that something is the sound, in particular, high-frequency sound. Transformation of energy as coming from the outside, do the cells of Corti. If you have traveled to your inner ear, after wandering the confusing maze of the cochlea you suddenly come to a "line of court", the longest line of the finest dancers in the world. 

Arranged in rows, 24600 elongated cells are dancing in strict compliance with every sound, like the corps de ballet in the music hall Radio City.

The energy produced by this unusual dance flows into your brain, and it is removed to get through the vestibular branch of the cerebellum to the muscles of your body.

High-frequency sounds energize your brain at the same time removing muscle tension and produces a variety of balancing your body. They affect you even after you have listened to them. Some of these high-frequency, full of energy and sounds used in music Superobucheniya. 

But you do not get the energy, high-frequency sounds simply by listening. It was this discovery Tomatis explains why some North Americans do not get the charge of vitality, listening to Baroque music, as do the people of Eastern Europe. There's something else that accompanies the ear, caused mainly sound pollution - as the East Europeans are accustomed to great sound from our background. 

Tomatis also discovered that you get used to hear in the sound spectrum of your native language. As a result, people perceive music in very different ways. Range plays in the Slavic languages ​​include both very low and very high frequencies. Field of American English is much narrower. 

You come into this world with the ability of perception wide range of sounds, with the ability to perceive sounds with a frequency of 16 Hz to 20,000 Hz. Then age, sometimes ear infections and almost always worsen the perception of sound pollution. The noise of a jackhammer to its frequency of 3,500 times per minute, traffic, sirens, subway, screaming music, banging machinery - all of which reduces the range of hearing. 

According to Tomatis, one of the reasons why we are starting to feel worse with age - that we can not hear high frequency sounds that can recharge us.

Dr. David Lipscomb of sound laboratory University of Tennessee in 1982 reported that 60% of entering the university have significant disorders of hearing in the high frequency region. Their ears can be compared only with hearing elderly. "These young people start their working lives with ears old," - said Lipscomb. 

Can the "grown old" ears to become young again? And once again the savior stands Dr. Tomatis. He found that you can update your ears, using sounds. This may seem paradoxical - to restore hearing by hearing. But to Tomatis, the son of a famous opera singer, whose house was always full of musicians, it was quite natural to turn to the healing effects of music and sounds. 

Do you remember how in biology classes in high school learned by remembering the names of three, behind the eardrum, - the hammer, anvil and stirrup? 

Now, imagine that you are surfing on a sound wave in your middle ear. You see, the muscles tighten and relax in order to properly position the ear drum, like the positioning of the satellite dish to the position of the ear correspond to different input frequencies.

You see that your muscles are too sluggish, and it seems that not all of them do their job. Suddenly there is a whistling sound your muscles quivering, as if they were shouted harsh instructor. Tense, relax, re-tighten and relax again, and again, and again. And this training should be subjected to the muscles of the inner ear, day after day until they recover enough to properly manage the eardrum. 

The role of the instructor with the whistle does "electronic ear" - a device developed and patented Tomatis. It emits a volley varying low and high-frequency sounds, which vary from ear to ear, which causes the muscles of the middle ear to work on yourself.

While this is happening, "opens" the inner ear - and the ability to hear high frequencies restored. This does not seem very impressive, but you can talk to a Canadian novelist Patricia Zhudro, which thought that the device is "electronic ear" will help solve her problems with hearing. The device has helped, but what surprised her most was this "incredible influx of vitality and, even better, the creative energy." 

It was found that this method could be not only a sort of sesame for accelerated learning, but also the keys to enable broad, ever-growing ability to learn. 

"The ear is designed to serve the individual as a mental and physical point of view," - says Tomatis. You may have already heard of the "free energy".

Tomatis to this concept material explanation. With the ear you can get into the flow of the natural supply of cosmic energy. And the flow of cosmic energy is never lost. 

What is the frequency of the sound you want to use to enlighten the mind? Sounds with frequencies ranging from five to 8,000 Hz fastest recharge "think batteries". Fastest recharge occurs under the influence of sound frequency of 8000 Hz.

After the test of music written by different composers, Tomatis found that Mozart's music to the greatest extent contains high-frequency sounds, recharge the brain.

At the same time, he found out what frequencies have a depressing effect on the brain and body. This low-frequency sounds - for example, road, airport, factories. Some low-frequency beating sounds in rock music as "suck mind," Tomatis says.
