By | March 27th, 2014|Categories: Medicine & Genetics, Psychology & Health|Tags: , , |

Modern civilization accepts as real only what is visible and measurable. The existence of a phenomenon is ascertained through the analysis of its mechanism and examined from the results and consequences. But science often gets puzzled by phenomena for which there is no reasonable explanation as it happens in cases of self-healing, which have become increasingly common in recent years. The fact that the body is affected by the spirit is generally accepted and reflected in language, since in our daily lives we often use such common phrases as “take my breath away” when being scared or shocked, “break my heart ” when suffering from emotional pain and other similar idioms that connect the feelings and emotions with the body.

Researchers at Sussex University and the Max Planck Institute (Leipzig, Germany), claim that their research demonstrates how music can be used to help patients recover more quickly while they are still in hospital. In other separate and unpublished studies, it was found that while a patient is under anesthesia during surgery, the music had an important impact and lowered stress hormones. According to Dr. Ronny Enk, an expert from the Max Planck Institute, the leader of the study, “the pleasurable state  which music induces to us can lead to changes in the body in terms of reducing stress and enhancing immunity.” […]

  Movies about psychics often show how they whisper a spell over a bleeding wound, and it skins over; or how they look closely at a terminally ill person, and he immediately gets better.
