Do you enjoy listening to music and also use it to relax? Anyone who studies music has probably heard of frequencies and Herz within a melody. Music has a lot of influence on our mood, as well as our health. The term Solfeggio frequencies is used for certain tones of sound that could promote physical and mental health. In this blog, we explain exactly what Solfeggio frequencies are and their health benefits.
The science behind Solfeggio frequencies
Although Solfeggio frequencies have gained prominence in recent years, they are not a new phenomenon. Even in the distant past, these were the basic sounds used in both Western Christian music and Eastern religions. Physicist Joseph Puleo rediscovered these frequencies in the 1970s and tried to bring their benefits to public attention. He used mathematical digit reduction to identify six measurable tones.
These can bring the body back into balance. Thanks to his work, several scientists have found more evidence supporting the claim that these frequencies can have positive effects on the body.
In 1988, for example, Dr. Glen Rein conducted research on the effects of different types of music on DNA. He exposed a number of tubes with equivalent DNA to different music frequencies: Gregorian and Sanskrit songs, classical music and rock. He then measured the rate at which the DNA absorbed light, an essential function of healthy DNA. And what transpired? Gregorian and Sanskrit music had the greatest positive effect. The absorption of light increased by 5 to 9%. Under the influence of classical music, absorption only increased by small amounts. And rock music actually decreased the absorption of light, damaging DNA. Thus, frequencies of sound can have intense effects and be both harmful and healing.
Other research also seems to indicate that Solfeggio frequencies can have a great impact on mental, physical and emotional health. It is also for this reason that music therapy is receiving more attention these days and can be used to support health. However, if we want to understand how it is that these frequencies affect us so much, it is important to know more about the Schumann resonance.
The influence of Schumann resonance
Actually, everything is in vibration, including the earth itself. In 1952, the German physicist Schumann documented the electromagnetic resonances that exist between the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere. He found out that these electromagnetic waves created by discharges from lightning resonated at a low frequency that was between 7.86 and 8 Herz. Schumann concluded that this frequency is in fact the heartbeat of the earth. Today, this frequency is called the Schumann resonance.
His successor Konig continued the investigation. He investigated the connection between the Schumann resonance the functioning of human beings. He found that different levels of brain activity (delta, theta, alpha, beta and gamma waves) corresponded to Schumann resonances. All these levels of brain activity occur naturally when people are sleeping, awake, learning and so on. Other researchers have also found evidence for this fact. Then there is the question: what is the connection between the Schumann resonance and Solfeggio frecuencies?
The positive effects of Solfeggio frecuencies
These frequencies can have a positive effect on your health because they resonate in harmony with the Schumann resonance of 8 Hz. If we look at music, you can see that the frequencies are derived by starting at 8 Hz. Then you ascend the scale octave by octave and arrive at the note C, which vibrates at a frequency of 256 Hz. The note A vibrates at 432 Hz. When music is tuned for the purpose of harmonizing with this frequency, it is also called scientific tuning.
The Solfeggio frequencies include six different tones, but they are not limited to that. Each frequency has its own unique healing effects on the body and mind.
Many old instruments are tuned to 432 Herz; before the 20th century, this frequency was the standard for tuning instruments. Today, 440 Herz has become the norm. 432 Herz is known for its powerful calming and soothing effects. It can help slow the heart rate and awakens feelings of peace and well-being.
528 Herz is a frequency the can help support the body’s recovery process. Research on this is still in its infancy, but it was discovered in Japan in 2018 that music tuned to 528 Hz can help reduce stress in the autonomic nervous system. And it was noticeable even after 5 minutes of listening to music.
Listening to music tuned to 396 Hz can cause anxiety and worry to subside. It can also help release unconscious negative beliefs. This music is suitable for anyone who wants to feel more positive and safe.
The Solfeggio frecuency of 639 Hz can help balance your emotions and improve your mood. It is promotes love, understanding and harmony within relationships.
Music in the frequency of 741 Hz can be used for cleansing the body, strengthening intuition and better expressing yourself. So it can help you when you have trouble standing up for yourself.
You can use this frequency to release negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones. If you suffer from stress or anxiety, this music can help you listen better to your inner strength. 852 Hz is a great frequency for living more in harmony with yourself.
Solfeggio frequencies combined with microdosing
If you already do microdosing, then you can combine it well with regular listening to Solfeggio frequencies. These frequencies can reinforce and support the benefits of microdosing. Choose the frequency you need at that moment, it can help you relax, sleep better and express your own unique self. These frequencies are, of course, also very suitable for meditation.
All of these techniques go well with microdosing. Most people also use it to boost their physical and mental health. Combining the Solfeggio frequencies with microdosing will support the processes you are working on and may help you achieve your goals more effectively.
