Doctors Use Mozart

Ngare Ring lives on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and practiced for many years as a speech pathologist, before being struck by a mysterious 21st century disease. She says “from one day to the next, my energy disappeared and I was baffled as to the cause of the problem.” But the disease, despite its debilitating effects, has proven to have changed her life for the better.

Ngare’s father, the late Dr. Frank Ellis (1912-1974) used to play Mozart and other composers to his patients during surgery when they were under local anaesthetic. He found that the music soothed and calmed them, making the experience much more comfortable and even pleasant. He adopted this procedure after spending time in the USA with the famous ear, nose and throat surgeon, Dr. Morris Cottle, who loved music and began the practice of using music during surgery. This was in the 1950s and the music he used was on a large reel-to-reel tape player. Many music connoisseurs still claim this is the best sound reproduction system ever invented.

Dr. Frank Ellis was one of Australia’s leading ENT (ear nose and throat) surgeons between the 1950’s and 1970’s and was president of the Otolarygological Society of Australia for a time. He was a pioneer in Australia in the use of microsurgery to remove austic neuromas (benign tumours of the auditory nerve).

Ngare was led to speech pathology due to her father and a lifetime interest in language which, she remembers, began even as a toddler. She believes that she was very fortunate to have been raised on classical music as it has greatly enriched her experience of speech and language. While working in California, she was able to combine her interest in language and learning with her fascination for foreign languages and became fluent enough in Spanish to work as a bilingual Special Education teacher with immigrant children from Mexico.

Ngare worked as a speech pathologist/special educator all her life until 1995 when she found that several amalgam dental fillings were cracked and she was advised by her dentist to have the fillings replaced. Being ill informed, like many dentists, on the dangers of mercury in the amalgam; the dentist removed her fillings without taking precautions to protect her from the toxic effects of gases and particles that were released during the drilling process. He then replaced her fillings with fresh mercury amalgam, which increased the level of toxicity.

That was when Ngare’s energy disappeared and, from one day to the next she, was faced with an enduring and inexplicable illness: including lethargy, migraine headaches and vision problems. Ngare was told by another dentist, who finally diagnosed her problem, that she had a very severe case of mercury poisoning along with gangrenous areas in her jawbone where wisdom teeth had been extracted. Because of all this she was also showing signs of early Multiple Sclerosis.

She sought help from many practitioners, and while pharmaceutical medicine made her condition worse, she received some relief from chiropractic and naturopathic treatment. But the beginning of the real turnaround came when she discovered Sound Therapy. Prior to this, Ngare undertook some rebirthing sessions in the hope of getting to the cause of her problems. One day the therapist asked her “tell me what you love most in the world.” Ngare was surprised to notice that the first three things she mentioned all had to do with music. During the rebirthing session, Ngare had what she describes as an incredible out-of-body experience where she saw herself sliding into a pool, surrounded by beautiful music. It was this experience that renewed her great interest in music and which eventually led to her discovery of Sound Therapy.

It was soon after the rebirthing experience that she came across the book “The Mozart Effect” by Don Campbell and from there was led to Sound Therapy, a portable self help listening program based on the work of the French ENT Specialist, Dr. Alfred Tomatis. Ngare read with fascination of the work of Dr. Tomatis who, using the reel-to-reel tape machines of the 1950s devised a listening program which not only could improve speech and language function and was a highly effective treatment for learning difficulties, but also helped to stimulate brain pathways and replenish energy systems in the body. Plagued as she was by chronic fatigue and constant severe migraine headaches related to heavy metal poisoning, Ngare was eager for anything that could give her back her vitality. She began using the Sound Therapy tapes and very soon her energy started to improve. The filtered music also gave her a feeling of hope and, from this time on, she was led to all the other things she needed. Beginning Sound Therapy was a real turning point for Ngare.

Along with a new sense of positivity, Ngare found she had an incredible new musical awareness. She says “I always loved music, but now I can’t live without it. It opens my heart.”

Dr. Tomatis, who knew of the healing power of Mozart for learning and emotional healing long before it was scientifically tested and proven, said “Mozart is a good mother.”

Given courage to seek further healing, Ngare found a Holistic dentist who replaced her amalgam fillings with the new composite type, but this time used proper protective measures such as rubber dams, oxygen supply, proper sequencing to reduce the battery-like effect of dissimilar metals in the mouth (mercury fillings and gold caps) and, of course, safe disposal of the amalgam material. She experienced immediate improvement in her health once the mercury fillings were removed. She also continued to benefit from Sound Therapy and began introducing the method to her family and clients. Ngare says that all members of her family have seen remarkable improvements from the therapy. Her husband has experienced a lowering of blood pressure and, with the reduced stress, he is like a different man. He no longer gets upset about minor things and sleeps like a baby for the first time in years. He uses the Sound Therapy while working in front of the computer. “One of the great benefits”, explains Ngare “is that you don’t have to concentrate on the therapy as it works on your ear at an unconscious level, so it is very suitable for busy people.”

Ngare’s mother, aged 86, had severe insomnia for many years, but now it is rare for her to have any sleeping problem. Her hearing has also improved; she had a loss of high frequencies in her left ear, which is no longer apparent. She now looks and acts like a woman 20 years younger than her actual age!

Ngare’s sister has been through some very stressful years. Since using Sound Therapy, she has become much more positive and is sleeping a lot better. She says: “I can cope with just about anything these days thanks to Sound Therapy. I keeps me calm and centred.” Ngare’s twin nieces who are typical of identical twins, being very emotionally, close have also been through trying times; so Ngare suggested they try Sound Therapy. One of them took up the listening and, as a result, her grandmother describes her as “a different girl.” She now has a much more positive attitude, is sleeping better and no longer waking every night at 2 am.

Ngare is particularly excited by the possibility of using Sound Therapy in conjunction with speech pathology. Having had to give up her practice due to her illness, she intends to resume it in a new form, combined with Sound Therapy. Ngare loved her work but found there were some clients she simply could not help. Coming from a medical tradition of using Mozart in the surgery, Ngare is undeterred by convention, for she has experienced first hand the remarkable healing power of music and is determined to gain for Sound Therapy the recognition it deserves in her field.

This article was written in 2001. Ngare is now retired and prefers not to take enquiries.

Sound Therapy for Children

When your children have a learning or developmental difficulty, nothing is more important than getting the help your child needs. Each day or week in school is an opportunity to learn and get ahead. If your child has trouble processing information, meaning he/she doesn’t hear, see and sense things the same way we do, learning becomes very difficult.

It is vitally important to get help for your child as soon as you can so that he or she doesn’t slip behind in school. Sometimes there may be a diagnosis such as ADHD, dyslexia, autism or learning difficulties. Behaviour problems and difficulty with concentration are often the result. What all of these situations have in common is that the child’s brain is not working as easily as it could.

Sound Therapy is an ideal treatment for all children and can be easily used at home or in the classroom. Simply by listening through ear phones to specially filtered music and stories, the child’s auditory processing system enhanced. The program is valuable for a child’s development, just as physical movement, spinning, swinging and co-ordination skills are important. Sound Therapy is like exercise for the ear and the auditory processing and sensory integration centres in the brain.

Whether your child is developing and performing normally, is exceptionally gifted, or is experiencing some kind of learning or developmental difficulties, Sound Therapy can be a valuable support.

Anxiety

Stress and anxiety

Anxiety is a condition where stress worry and dread have built up to the point they interfere with our daily functioning. Worry about everyday life is exaggerated to the point where it preoccupies the mind.  Sufferers tend to worry frequently about health, money, family, work or school. This worrying is often unrealistic or out of proportion to the situation.

Noise and anxiety

Research has found that noise related stress contributes to anxiety and can increase high blood pressure, peptic ulcers, cardiovascular deaths, strokes, suicides, degradation of the immune system, and impairment of learning.

Brain activity is always either enhanced or depleted by sound, depending on the quality of the sound. This is why Dr. Tomatis said, “Some sounds are as good as two cups of coffee.” Listening to Sound Therapy for three hours a day calms the mind and compensates for and counteracts the draining, stressful effect of low frequency noise.

Insomnia and anxiety

Anxiety is frequently the cause of poor sleep. Insomnia is caused by excessive cortical activity that cannot be stopped. Though Sound Therapy recharges the brain for activity during the day, it also has a calming effect which enables the listener in nearly every case to slip easily and quickly into sleep. While the brain and the nervous system are stimulated by the sound, this results not in a hyperactive state but in a state of active serenity, which allows for deep rest. Sleeplessness due to anxiety can also be resolved.

Survey results indicate that between 70 and 80 percent of Sound Therapy listeners notice an improvement in their sleep. Many insomniacs experience an immediate and dramatic improvement in their sleep.

Brain Integration

Right and left brain hemispheres

The left brain hemisphere is the language-processing centre. The right brain is used for spatial judgment, movement, drawing, music, mathematics and technical abilities. Brain integration is one of the keys to improving memory, concentration, creativity, energy levels, IQ, EQ and many other markers of intelligence.

Sound therapy works on both sides to develop areas where we might be weak and improve communication between the hemispheres. For this reason Sound Therapy listeners often find themselves developing new abilities and overcoming blocks.

Why are high frequencies important for the Brain?

Through his study of embryology, Tomatis realised that the first sounds we hear are high frequency sounds because the area of the cochlea which detects high frequencies is the first to develop.

Through his experiments Tomatis showed that high frequency sounds serve as a vital and necessary stimulant for cortical activity. The brain needs high frequencies in order to be fully functional. The electrical charge of the brain, the energy on which it runs, needs to be regularly replenished and Tomatis discovered a way to do this by using specially processed sounds.
 

The cerebellum

The cerebellum plays a significant role in sensory co-ordination, both visual and auditory, and has been dubbed the autopilot of the brain. It is an area of the brain about the size of your fist, which sits behind the brainstem at the base of your skull. Sound Therapy researchers now believe that any learning difficulty associated with auditory processing problems is linked to the cerebellum.

Researchers are only now beginning to unravel the deeply important role of the cerebellum, for while it directs no specific body functions, it operates as monitor and coordinator of the brain’s other centres and as mediator between them and the body.

It has been known for some time that the cerebellum was responsible for the management of the body’s equilibrium and muscular activity. However, it has more recently come to light that the cerebellum is equally involved in the co-ordination of the sensations of touch, hearing and sight.

Sound Therapy brings about improved function and brain integration of cerebellar pathways and this means that many areas of our sensory and motor function are improved.

Music

If you work in a musical field whether it is composing, playing an instrument or singing, Sound Therapy may increase your abilities and satisfaction in this area. Musicians, singers and music lovers report increased auditory perception, greater awareness of tones, frequencies and the emotional impact of music. At the same time, performance is enhanced. Whether you sing in the church choir or perform as a soloist, Sound Therapy is likely to give you both increased ability and enjoyment of your art. The ability to reproduce certain notes, to be inspired to create and interpret, just to enjoy listening, are all lifted to new heights.

This is not surprising, since the sense of listening is fundamental to musical performance and appreciation. If part of the listening capacity has diminished over time, musical abilities must necessarily be impaired. Improving the listening capacity will enhance both the physical ability to perform and the emotional response to appreciate music. Sound Therapy works on the listening capacity in several ways. The physical structures of the ear are stimulated to enhance their performance. Auditory pathways in the brain are activated, making processing of auditory information faster and more efficient, and the emotional psyche is opened on new levels by the process of sonic birth that is stimulated through the high frequency filtering.

Sleep and Sound Therapy

Insomnia

Insomnia is caused by stress, so when our stress is reduced by Sound Therapy, we naturally sleep better. Listeners usually notice an improvement in their sleep even on the first night. Insomnia is caused by excessive cortical excitation that cannot be stopped. Sound Therapy cuts mind chatter and allows the mind to move naturally into the slower rhythms that lead to sleep.

Though Sound Therapy aims to recharge the brain for activity during the day, when you want to rest, it may also have a calming effect which enables the listener to slip easily and quickly into sleep. While the brain and the nervous system are stimulated by the sound, an active serenity may be experienced, which also allows for deep rest. Sleeplessness due to anxiety may also be resolved. The opening of the ear to high frequency sounds re-creates the pre-birth experience and can facilitate the resolution of early emotional anxieties. A recent survey indicates that between 70% and 80% of Sound Therapy Listeners notice an improvement in their sleep. Many insomniacs have experienced an immediate and dramatic improvement in their sleep.

How to listen

Some people benefit from listening to the program as they go to sleep and may listen either for the first 90 minutes or all night. Others will find that listening during the day is more appropriate to fit in with their sleeping and waking routine. For example, some people find the programs helpful to put them back to sleep if they wake in the night, whereas others may use them for an energy boost if they become drowsy in the evening. Each person needs to develop a listening routine that suits their needs and is appropriate to their individual response to the programs.

Deeper, better sleep

Dr Tomatis believes that if we receive sufficient stimulation for the brain, the need for sleep is reduced. Studies have shown that we don’t really need as much sleep as we think because it is mainly our brain that needs sleep, not our body. When the brain has more energy, we need less sleep. Therefore Sound Therapy listeners usually find they need between one and three hours less sleep per night. Deep sleep, medically termed “hypersomnia”, is the most essential type of sleep for our well being. Dreaming sleep or REM (Rapid Eye Movement) is a lighter sleep and with Sound Therapy it may be reduced in length without ill effects. The purpose of sleep is to replenish the brain’s energy. If the brain receives adequate stimulation from sound then the hours of sleep can be reduced.

Neuralgia

Neuralgia is pain that follows the path of a nerve. Pain can result from pressure, damage, inflammation or aggravation of the nerves.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) is the pain caused by compression of the trigeminal nerve, the largest of the twelve nerves in the cranium. The trigeminal nerve is primarily responsible for sensation in the face and one of its three branches is responsible for the movement of the jaw as well. The trigeminal nerve Has several connections to the ear and ear drum and can be associated with TMJ, (tempero-mandibular joint) pain, ear aches and stuffy ears
One of the major causes of trigeminal neuralgia is the erosion of the nerve sheath which is actually a loss of the myelin covering of the nerve. Some other causes may include compression by an adjacent blood vessel, physical damage by dental or other surgeries, genetic predisposition or rarely, a tumor or multiple sclerosis. Abnormalities usually occur at the inner nerve fibers that carry the sensation.

The trigeminal nerve is similar to other sensory nerves like the sciatic nerve in the spinal region and the pain caused by compression can be as excruciating as sciatica. 

Shingles and neuralgia

Shingles is an infection that results from the reactivation of the chickenpox  virus and causes a painful, blistering rash. Post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) is a complication of shingles, causing ongoing pain after the rash has cleared. It’s most likely in older people, and causes continuing pain, after the rash from shingles has healed. The pain is caused by scarring of nervous system tissue in the spinal cord. It may be burning, stabbing, or throbbing, and it may affect more areas than the original shingles pain. The pain can occur in response to minor stimuli. Normally painless things (such as the light touch of clothing) can cause pain, and things that would normally cause slight discomfort become extremely painful.

Relief for neuralgia

Natural therapies are often used to relieve neuralgia as it is a difficult condition to treat with standard medicine.
Relief can be achieved through improve circulation, reduced hyperactivity of the cranial nerves, reduced stress, improved myelination, neural plasticity and inhibition of excess excitation. It is proposed that some of these conditions can be supported by the use of Sound Therapy.

Sound Therapy listeners report relief from neuralgia

“I had a major operation on my leg some years ago and ended up with a lot of nerve damage and resulting pain. When I use Sound Therapy I have no pain in that foot and when I don’t use it I do. We know Sound Therapy has a profound effect on the nervous system, so it helps us both emotionally and physically.” Carol King, Massage Therapist
“Shingles on my face had affected the nerves to my face and head and left some inflammation and damage so they were acute to touch with shooting pains in my face, ear and head. This has now gone. When I first started Sound Therapy the condition was greatly stirred up, so I had to go slowly at first, but it was resolved in less than six months.

Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain and Sound Therapy

Chronic pain can occur because there is an injury or disease in the body that needs attention. The best solution is obviously to find the cause of the disease or injury and treat it, if possible.  But pain can become chronic for another reason. Chronic pain specialists, ask the question, “why does the pain continue long after the injury occurred?”

The answer seems to lie in the fact that all our body parts are constantly sending signals to the brain along our nerve pathways. However, when a body part, say a foot, is injured, that foot stops sending those messages that were letting the brain know, “yes, I’m here, I have five toes, I’m bearing weight, I’m OK” etc.

When those familiar messages cease, the brain assumes the foot has been injured or there is something wrong, so it creates another signal, a distress signal, called “pain.” In the healing process, if the foot does not regain full function, if there is scarring, or nerves have been severed, or the nerves in the pain system are also injured, the normal signals never resume, so it is possible that the pain signal will continue on and on.

Pain and neuroplasticity

Chronic pain can be due to neuroplasticity. This means the brain has changed its structure and its way of communicating pain messages, so these messages have become continuous after the injury has healed. However, neuroplasticity ( the ability of the brain to change) can also lead to healing form chronic pain.

Sound Therapy and how it affects chronic pain

Sound is a direct and easy way to stimulate the brain. Sound Therapy uses highly filtered classical music with augmented high frequencies to produce global brain reactivation. It has been observed that this regular stimulation which reconnects many parts of the brain seems to provide the necessary signal so the brain can let go of its repetitive chronic pain signal. Those with chronic pain from old injuries or phantom pain from amputation have sometimes achieved complete relief through Sound Therapy.

Listeners report how Sound Therapy relieved their chronic pain

“After 16 years of almost constant phantom pain due to amputation of my right leg from a car accident, I feel I have now found an answer. When I got my Sound Therapy I had some response almost at once, and it kept getting better. I didn’t really believe it would help when I started; I had used so many things for phantom pain, even self hypnosis, and had to take painkillers 3 or 4 times a day. Now I rarely take them, and only for some other complaint. The good results continue. It truly seems like a miracle.” Dr. Kathleen Langstaff, Naramata, BC, Canada

“My husband suffered for many years with very bad headaches, which sometimes lasted for several days. Since receiving our Sound Therapy four months ago, we have each averaged more than 4 hours a day of listening. Since the first week or two my husband has not had any more of those headaches. It has also helped me, by lowering my blood pressure and giving me much more energy. My husband is 75 and I am 73. Your Sound Therapy sure is a gift for us older people, as well as the younger ones.” Lorna Cooley, Victoria, BC, Canada:

“My pain is not as sharp and my sleep is less.  The colours are beautiful.  They stand out heaps and are richer and brighter. Reading – there are more gaps in between the letters.  They stand out even more.  This has helped a lot for me.  Life is so much easier now.  But of course I feel like a new person.  The world has changed a lot.”
Larissa Amy, 13 year old girl with ADD and Higher Functioning Autism – Sydney

“I commenced sound therapy in January 1991. After about 200 hours of listening everyday…I noticed some changes, headaches diminished, tiredness fading, less restless sleep. Shoulder and back pain reduced, posture improved, better sense of direction of sound, improved sense of balance. Hearing improved, fuzzy noises in ears not so apparent.” K. Joseph Biggs, Burleigh Heads, Queensland

Brenda Dickerson experienced soreness behind her ears and in her jaw for a long time. She has found that with Sound Therapy the soreness is going. She can now push her fingers in and not scream in pain. “So that is quite impressive as far as I am concerned,” she says, “because nothing else could stop it. Any heavy massage hurts too much.”
From Triumph Over Tinnitus Interview with Brenda Dickerson, Reflexologist

“Probably the biggest thing that Sound Therapy has done for me would be the, in regard to my hearing. But  also I have had for about 12 years, problems with my feet which were caused by breaking both my heel bones in a fall off a scaffold. Since then I had almost nightly problems with burning and a nervous sort of reaction in my feet. But since I started Sound Therapy I haven’t had one night’s problem. The other problem with my feet was quite a deal of pain, most of the time. And after I’d been listening for about 3 months, that all dissipated and now I have very little pain in my feet.

I think Sound Therapy could be given the credit for the feet, because I’ve done nothing else that could have done it and I suppose it’s hard to believe but Sound Therapy is the only thing that’s been around.”  Don Clark, Builder

“I had a major operation on my leg some years ago and ended up with a lot of nerve damage and resulting pain. When I use Sound Therapy I have no pain in that foot and when I don’t use it I do. We know Sound Therapy has a profound effect on the nervous system, so it helps us both emotionally and physically.” Carol King, Massage Therapist

Parkinson’s

Parkinsons disease and Sound Therapy

Parkinson’s disease is a movement disorder caused by a degenerative condition of the central nervous system that often impairs the sufferer’s motor skills, speech, and other functions.

The primary symptoms are the results of decreased stimulation of the motor cortex by the basal ganglia,  (an area of the brain associated with a variety of functions, including motor control and learning) Parkinson’s occurs when certain nerve cells (neurons) in a part of the brain called the substantia nigra die or become impaired. Normally, these cells produce a vital chemical known as dopamine. Dopamine is the neurotransmitter which gives us our inspiration and ability to “get up and go.”

Dopamine allows smooth, coordinated function of the body’s muscles and movement. When approximately 70% of the dopamine-producing cells are damaged, the symptoms of Parkinson disease will appear. PD is both chronic and progressive.

 Major symptoms
1. Tremor, (shaking, trembling)
2. Rigidity or stiffness of the muscles and inability to control movement
3. Slowness of movement, poor fine motor control

Other symptoms:
Some patients experience pain and discomfort in an arm or leg, anxiety and depression, slowness of thinking, memory problems, tiredness and disturbed sleep. Other possible symptoms are constipation, bladder problems (frequency and urgency.) Speech and swallowing problems can occur later in the illness. Secondary symptoms may include high level cognitive dysfunction and subtle language problems.

Brain stimulation and Parkinson’s
Research has clearly established that different types of brain stimulation can dramatically improve the symptoms of Parkinson’s. Studies have also found that music (specifically Mozart) can improve the transmission of dopamine and serotonin – the neurotransmitters associated with Parkinson’s. Combining music with a very specific type of high frequency stimulation, Sound Therapy is a promising and supportive treatment for those with Parkinson’s.

“I have Parkinson’s Disease. I lie down every day and put on my headphones and go into a very peaceful and restful sleep. I think Sound Therapy is beneficial to the stress that this malady brings on. Depression seems to be one of the worst side effects, and this is where Sound Therapy works wonders, making me feel re-enforced to carry on my daily tasks.”

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis and Sound Therapy

Multiple Sclerosis is a slowly progressive “chronic” disease of the central nervous system where myelin, the insulation on nerve fibers, is lost. It affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other.

Communication between nerve cells occurs by the sending of electrical signals, called action potentials, along fibers called axons, which are wrapped in an insulating substance called myelin. Myelin is the fatty layer—known as the myelin sheath—which helps the neurons carry electrical signals along the nerve fibres. It is the main component of the white matter of the brain and spinal cord. In MS, the body’s own immune system attacks and damages the myelin.

When myelin is lost, this affects the ability of the axons to communicate effectively. The name multiple sclerosis refers to scars (scleroses— which are better known as plaques or lesions) in the myelin.

MS is thought to be an autoimmune dysfunction in which the body turns on itself for some unknown reason.
Demyelination (damage to the myelin sheath) contributes to loss of muscular and nervous system function.  Areas of the brain that are heavily myelinated are more effective in conducting high frequency signals. Therefore demyelination contributes to a loss of hearing acuity and balance problems.
Some degree of relief and prevention or slowing of further degradation may be achieved through Sound Therapy. Sound Therapy stimulates many parts of the nervous system apart from the hearing nerves. Research findings suggest that auditory deprivation from birth results in less myelination and/or fewer fibers projecting to and from auditory cortices. Therefore increased auditory stimulation may be a factor in helping to maintain myelination of certain pathways.

The symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) can affect your ability to move around. You may be experiencing tightness, pain, and weakness, especially in the muscles and joints.

Sound Therapy can help with many of the symptoms associated with MS such as:

• Balance problems
• Lack of coordination
• Hearing loss due to muscle spasm or poor neural responsiveness
• Headaches
• Fatigue
• Pain
• Immobility
• Weakness
• Stress
• Insomnia
• Anxiety

How Sound Therapy helped one Multiple Sclerosis sufferer
“I suffer from MS and have been listening to the Sound Therapy for about three months. I have had great luck in stabilizing my energy and can carry on normally. Nothing else I have done has helped me the way Sound Therapy has. The M stands for multiple or many, and so I need to do a lot of things, but the sound therapy program really has helped bring it all together and make it worthwhile. It is a life saver to me. It also keeps headaches at bay.”
