Not sure if it was Albert Einstein or Nicola Tesla, but whoever said this, was a genius: Everything in the universe is vibration. And that means we, humans, are both the energy sources and the antennas picking up vibrations from our surroundings.
You might ask: so what? How does that affect me? Well… actually, this is the kind of knowledge that could save your life.
The Power of Good Vibrations
For over 50 years studies have been conducted all over the world with frequencies and their effect on us. In 2008 Advances in Skin & Wound Care journal noted expedited wound healing with noncontact, low-frequency ultrasound therapy in chronic wounds. The results? 53% of wounds treated with low-frequency ultrasound therapy (and standard care) healed as compared with 32% treated with the standard care alone.
A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease by a team of researchers at the University of Toronto, Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, and the Baycrest Centre in Toronto, Canada, in 2016, proclaimed: Study of Alzheimer’s Patients Finds Low Frequency Sound Stimulation Improves Cognition. The same year MIT’s Alzheimer’s group did experiments on transgenic mice with early Alzheimer’s disease and found that exposing them to a light flickering at a frequency of low frequency 40 Hz for 1 hour a day for 7 days caused an almost 60% reduction in ß-amyloid plaques, which are a molecular hallmark of Alzheimer’s.
And how about this: Multiple sessions of 15Hz Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation has been very effective as a treatment for gambling addiction. After two weeks of rTMS treatment the days spent gambling decreased from 19.63 ± 7.96 to 0.13 ± 0.35 days. Clinical improvements were maintained throughout the study period.

The researchers at the National Research Nuclear University found out that in addition to having the usual capacity for 5 brain waves (Gamma, which is responsible for creative process, learning and personal growth, Beta for fast thinking as in fight or flight responses, Alpha for relaxed focus, Theta for extreme relaxation needed during sleep for physical and emotional healing, or Delta necessary for unconscious sleep with vital hormone production) the human body can generate mechanical vibrations of very low frequency (0.01-10 Hz, so-called infrasonic waves) in 3 types.
Waves of the first type are connected with the heartbeat (pulse). Waves of the second type align with the human respiratory rhythm. The third type of waves are called Traube-Hering waves, which are often observed in the state of emotional tension.
Change your Vibrations to Change Your Emotions
Think about it: if the human emotional state is determined by wave frequency, then why couldn’t we change our emotions, by changing the vibrations?
Want to stay healthy or return to the optimal state? Focus on your vibrations. The closer we are to the ‘natural’ frequencies of the earth, living organisms or ecological materials, the easier it is to maintain synchronicity with our internal frequencies, which also keep us functioning and healthy. The more man-made or industrial vibrations we encounter, the greater the asynchrony and the greater the load is on our system to return to the balance that our bodies were meant to be in.
That is why so many people these days attend yoga classes, practice meditation and utilize body awareness: to reestablish the equilibrium distorted by stress, toxins, pollution and trauma.
If you want to learn more about staying grounded and centered and keeping your system in balance talk to your therapist at the Juniper Center.
And learn how to use tuning forks, find and listen to the healing frequencies on your music device, or head for a gong bath. And above all: practice good vibrations.
