Editor’s Note: We have all read astrological predictions & some swear by, and plan their lives around, them. Well, not only are the “stars” affecting you; “universal frequencies” (a/k/a “BioAcoustic Keynotes”), are too.
How do they work? Well, everything in your body, and what we put into it, has a numeric frequency (a Frequency Equivalent (TM), or FE, for short). The body is incredibly system-redundant, as shown by how 1 pressure point can address symptoms in different body parts & systems. So, 1 FE can correspond to a muscle & biochemical simultaneously, such as an inability to open a pickle jar tends to indicate a weak lower thumb muscle & also correlates to zinc. Presenting that 1 FE will improve the performance of both.
Light is also expressed as frequency. So when we discuss this, we can say the following: Universal Frequency/ BioAcoustic Key Note = a color = a Frequency Equivalent of a body part and/or biochemical/pathogen/ toxin. Right now, the Universal Frequency is represented by the note of A and the color Purple this week. This means that we are in the seventh part of the color cycle (remember “R-O-Y-G-B-I-V). Astrologically, while we are in the Sign of Aquarius. See how this affects YOU by reading below! We would love to hear how and whether anything in our weekly column resonates with how you feel during the week. If so, please leave a comment in the comments section below.
This week, we have a sampling of muscles from every part of the body. Here is our list proceeding from head to toe:
Muscles that are in stress this week:
Rectus Lateralis: Is one of 6 muscles that moves your eyes, thus allowing you to scan your environment without moving your head. This one in particular, as the name suggests, serves to move your eyes sideways and mostly is used to adduct or move your eyes away from the center of your field of vision. Source: “Lateral Rectus Muscle”
Depressor Septi: is a muscle of the nose, one of the 3. This muscle serves to constrict the nostrils and to help the Nasalis muscle to flare your nostrils when breathing deeply into the nose. Source: “Depressor Septi Nasi Muscle” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depressor_septi_nasi_muscle
Orbicularis Oris: is one of your mouth muscles and runs in line with your lips. It allows you to pucker your lips, force the breath out of your mouth, close the lips, and play an instrument. So, in short, it allows you to kiss, make beautiful music (either by whistling or playing woodwind or brass instruments) and keeps bugs from flying into your mouth if you’re riding on a motorcycle or in a convertible. Source: “Orbicularis Oris”
Rhomboid Minor: is a small muscle in your upper back which connects the vertebrae of the spine with the scapula. This and the Rhomboid Major muscle act to keep the scapula against the thoracic wall and retracts the scapula any time the trapezius is contracted and acts at times in opposition to the trapezius muscle.
Pectoralis Major: is your major and largest chest muscle.
C-6: is a vertebra which is connected by nerves to the neck muscles, shoulders, and tonsils. When this vertebra is subluxated or injured, it may cause such symptoms as stiff neck, pain in the upper arm, tonsillitis, chronic cough, or croup. Source: “Interactive Spine”
T-11: is a vertebra which is connected by nerves to the kidneys and ureters. When this vertebra is subluxated or injured, it may cause such symptoms as skin conditions, like acne, pimples, eczema or boils. Source: “Interactive Spine”
Sartorious: is a muscle of your hip, thigh and knees that holds the honor of being the “longest” muscle in the body. It goes down the length of the front of the thigh down to the medial side of the knee and terminates in a tendon, which comes together with the tendons of other muscles, the gracilis and semitendonosus.
Its function is to help with flexing the hip, moving it inward and laterally rotating it, as well as being useful to flex the knee. One way to think of this muscle’s function is to imagine times when you lift your foot to look at the bottom of it to see if you have stepped in gum. Source: “Sartorius Muscle”
Biceps Brachii: is also one of your arm muscles that is responsible for flexing the elbow joint. It sits more deeply than the biceps muscle which, of course, also flexes the elbow. Source: “Brachialis Muscle”
Tensor Fasciae Latae: is located not far from the above muscle, but is a thigh muscle related with the gluteus maximus muscle. The tensor fasciae latae helps our pelvis to stay balanced while we are shifting weight from side to side and front and back as we walk, stand or run. It also helps your gluteus maximus muscle when you extend your hip. It also has other important functions as it is a primary muscle used for horseback riding, water skiing and hurdling. This is also a muscle that cause problems when it gets tight, translating pain in the hips, lower back and sides of the knees. Source: “Tensor fasciae latae muscle”
Rectus Femoris: is one of the four muscles (the others being the vastus medialis, vastus intermedius and vastus lateralis) that countervail the hamstrings. These muscles connect to the knee cap through what his called the quadriceps tendon. This muscle serves to flex the thigh at the hip joint and extend the leg at the knee joint. Source: “Rectus Femoris Muscle”
Abductor Pollicis Brevis: is a foot muscle whose function is to abduct and flex your big toe. Source: “Abductor Pollicis Longus”
Abductor Pollicis Longus: is a hand muscle and, as the name suggests, it primarily serves to abduct the thumb at the wrist. Source: “Abductor Pollicis Longus Muscle”
Flexor Hallucis Brevis: is a muscle sits within the sole of your foot, connecting to the bottom of a foot bone, called the “cuboid bone” in the middle of the foot and then connects to another bone, called the “hallux bone”, which is actually your big toe. This muscle plays two (2) different roles, by moving the big toe downward and then assists other muscles in arching the entire foot. Its movement of the big toe is countered by the extensor hallucis longus muscle which sits in the top of the foot. Source: “Flexor Hallucis Brevis”
This muscle, while small, can cause quite a lot of pain. It is affected by high heels, overly small shoes, walking or standing or running on hard surfaces, and walking or running uneven ground. The pain from this muscle goes from the ball of the foot into the big toe. Issues with this muscle also contribute to such conditions as Plantar Fascitis, Plantar Wart, and Hammer Toe, et al.

In our nutrients section this week, we have a wide range of things, a precious metal, an antibody, a cell salt, and some vitamins.
Nutrients and other biochemicals that are being influenced this week:
Water: Good old water. We literally cannot live without it. We are mostly made up of it and scientists still do not understand all of the different amazing qualities of water and why water acts, so uniquely, the way it does. Water arguably bridges the gap between Newtonian Physics and Quantum Physics. A great, albeit dated, film that you might want to check out is simply called Water: the Movie.
Water is a major part in the fluid of Earth’s organisms, as well as the Earth’s own fluids, as they flow through creeks, streams, lakes, seas and oceans-which cover about 71% of the Earth’s surface. It is vital to the function of the Earth and its organisms. Concerns have arisen about the supply of potable (i.e., drinkable) water in light of pollutants coming from people, factories, fracking, et al.
Right now, it is said that about one billion of us lack access to safe drinking water, and a full 2.5 billion do not have access to proper sanitation. Economists have equated lack of access to sanitary water to the production of a country. As access goes down, so does the gross domestic product per capita. So, governments do well to invest in preserving such a valuable resource. Despite efforts to protect water as a resource, some estimate that more than half of the Earth’s people may face vulnerability around this resource. Source: “Water”
Hydrogen Peroxide: is a chemical compound with the chemical formula H2O2. It is a colorless liquid in its pure form, and is similar to water, but a little bit more vicious. A peroxide is a compound with a single bond of oxygen and is useful as a strong oxidizer, disinfectant or bleaching agent. Hydrogen peroxide happens to be the simplest of the peroxides. Concentrated hydrogen peroxide has also been used as a rocket propellant.
Although seemingly very similar and having a similar melting point to water, Hydrogen Peroxide will explode if heated to boiling and cause serious burns and fires. This is why it usually sold in a 3% to 6% dilute solution. Source: “Hydrogen Peroxide”
Hydrogen Peroxide has many household and health uses, too, such as antiseptic mouth rinse, relief for an ear infection, and for addressing foot fungus, et al. Source: “34 Reasons Why You Need Hydrogen Peroxide in Your Home”
Vitamin B-12 a/k/a Cobalamin a/k/a Cyanocobalamin a/k/a Cobamamide: is, like its other B-Vitamin counterparts, a water soluble vitamin, meaning that any excessive amount of it will be purged in urine, although Vitamin B12 can be stored in the liver and our other body tissues for a long time. Of any of the water soluble vitamins, this means that we are less likely to be deficient in this important B-Vitamin. Nor does it get depleted by cooking.
Along with other B-Vitamins, Vitamin B-12 plays an important role in keeping our nerves and skin healthy. As you have likely heard, it is also key in the body’s production of energy, as well as the making of red blood cells, DNA and overall body metabolism (of proteins, fats, as well as carbs). For these reasons, this vitamin is considered important to nearly every body system. It is also thought that this vitamin, along with Vitamin B-6 and Folic Acid, may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks, due to their ability to lover homocysteine levels (have been associated with hardening/narrowing of arteries. Vitamin B-12 may also be important to brain health. Source: “Vitamin B12”
Lipotropin Hormone: is “[a] hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland that promotes the utilization of fat by the body and is a precursor to the endorphins.” Source: “Lipotropin Hormone”
Nitric Oxide Synthase: Is an enzyme and a type of neurotransmitter. As an enzyme, it catalyzes production of nitric oxide out of nitric oxide, which happens to be an important cell signaling molecule, which in turn aids in modulating the tone of our blood vessels and airways, secretion of insulin, peristalsis, angiogenesis, and the development of our nerves. Source: “Nitric Oxide Synthases”
Melatonin: is a hormone which heralds the darkening of the environment at night in humans, although it is thought that it may have other functions in other animals, plants, and bacteria. Melatonin functions to not only regulate the sleep cycle, but also to regulate blood pressure, seasonal reproduction, an antioxidant, and protects nuclear and mitochondrial DNA. Some use it as a supplement to help them get to sleep and for sleep disorders. Source: “Melatonin”
Sodium Chloride: is common table salt.
Psyllium: is the common name for different members of the same plant family in the genus, Plantago, which has about 200 different species. The seeds of these plants are used for so-called “mucilage” and come from certain European countries, Russia, and India. Use of Psyllium seem to indicate a reduction in cholesterol, as a dietary fiber which, because it is not absorbed by the small intestine, it sucks up excess water while at the same time stimulating normal elimination through the bowel tract. In this way, it diminishes symptoms of diarrhea and constipation.
The U.S. imports the most psyllium, at 60% of total imports, but this does not necessarily mean that we are more “full of it” than the rest of the world.
Psyllium is used as a dietary fiber for animals and (when dehusked) as feed for chickens and cattle. It is also used to thicken ice cream and other frozen dessert, et al. Source: “Psyllium”
Immunoglobulin E: is an antibody which plays an important role in addressing allergenic diseases. It does this by binding to allergens and instructing the body to release certain substances from the body’s mast cells in order to cause inflammation. The body will react to a certain substance usually after repeated exposure to it which causes the body to begin to “react” to it. The body reacts to it also when there seems to be a certain critical mass of the substance during a particular moment of exposure. The type of reaction ranges from strong to mild. The repeated interaction with the substance causes the body to trigger ever stronger allergic reactions that cause the body to release more antibodies.
Once your body has had enough exposure to the particular substance, the body produces an IgE specifically for that substance, so that it can “recognize” it later. Upon subsequent exposure, your body is ready to have an “explosive” reaction as the mast cells have become “armed” and ready for “detonation.” This creates the histamine responses which cause you to sneeze, cough, get a runny nose, itchy eyes, and even a wheeze or a shortness of breath.
The initial reaction to the allergen will occur within an hour and a second response or reaction can take place 3 to 10 hours later, and can last up to a day. In this period of reaction, you can have congestion and other types of symptoms that feel more severe than in the initial response period.
Exposure can occur from inhalation, ingestion, touching something, or by being injected with a medication or insect sting. Of course, anti-histamines and anti-inflammatories are what people to take to address the symptoms of allergies. Source: “Immunoglobulin E” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immunoglobulin_E
Medications that are active this week:
Retin-A a/k/a Tretinoin: is a type of Vitamin A which has been found to help the skin to renew itself. This has led to its use as an acne treatment, wrinkle treatment, to address skin discoloration, and to make skin feel smoother. It may take months for these effects to take place. Those using this medication reportedly need to be mindful of their sun exposure as it makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Source: “Retin-A”
Gentamicin A: is an antibiotic that is said to treat certain types of bacterial infections in different areas of the body: bone, the pelvis, urinary tract, and genitals, but is not considered effected against gonorrhea or chlamydia infections. It can be used on the skin to address burns or for infections on the outside of the eye.
On the downside, it can cause kidney problems or inner ear problems (such as issues with balance and hearing problems, which may be permanent). It can also be harmful to the baby during pregnancy. Source: “Gentamicin ”
Estradiol: is an artificial form of the female sex hormone, estrogen, which is produced in the ovaries. This is an important hormone, needed many of the body’s biological processes.
Like Estrogen, Estradiol is considered a treatment for menopause symptoms (hot flashes, vaginal burning, dryness, and irritation), Osteoporosis prevention for postmenopausal women; Estrogen replacement for those with ovarian failure or other conditions which cause a deficiency of Estrogen in the body; as part of some cancer treatments (for women and men).
Use of this artificial hormone is contraindicated for those with liver disease, bleeding disorders, unusual vaginal bleeding, history of hormone-dependent cancer, if you have ever had a blood clot, heart attack or stroke. Source: “Estradiol”
Toxins that are in play this week:
Butane: is a type of gas at room temperature and atmospheric pressure, and is a very flammable, colorless, and easily liquified gas. “Butane” is a name derived from shortening the name, butyric acid, and adding the suffix “ane.”
Butane is used in many applications: assisting in the production of synthetic rubber, to increase the octane level of motor vehicle gasoline, for liquefied petroleum gas, cigarette lighter fuel, an aerosol spray propellant in such products as deodorant sprays, refrigerants in household refrigerators and freezers, as a fuel for camping stoves and torches, and finally cordless hair irons.
Care should be taken when using butane as it can cause some health issues. It can make you euphoric, drowsy, can cause breathing problems or suffocation, throw off the rhythm of the heart and blood pressure, memory loss (temporary) and, in extreme situations, cause death from suffocation or ventricular fibrillation. There are those that use this in very dangerous ways as a drug of sort and caused most of the solvent-related deaths (52%) in the United Kingdom in the year 2000. Source: “Butane”
Cesium 137 a/k/a Radiocaesium: is an element and a radioactive isotope. It is formed as a product of splitting an atom of Uranium-235 and other fissionable isotopes inside of nuclear reactors. As it is very water soluble and has a half-life of 30.17 years, it can be readily absorbed into the environment very easily and presents a substantial danger to flora and fauna.
Caesium-137 is used to calibrate equipment which detects radiation and for radiation therapy in medicine, in flow meters, et al. When it is absorbed by the body, this isotope spreads widely and concentrates in soft tissues. A substance called Prussian Blue has been used to treat those who have accidentally ingested Cesium-137 and it reduces the half-life to 30 days by binding with it.
Tiny quantities of this and Cesium-134 are released into the environment after every nuclear weapon test and some nuclear accidents, in particular Chernobyl and Fukushima Daiichi disasters.
As of 2005, Cesium-137 was the primary radiation source of radiation around Chernobyl. In Scandinavia 26 years after Chernobyl occurred, some sheep and reindeer had enough Cesium-137 in their bodies to exceed the limit for this isotope.
In April 2011, elevated Cesium-137 levels were also being found in Japan after the Fukushima Daiichi incident, with livestock showing above-safe level limits three (3) months later. In certain fish, they found levels of this radioactive isotope to be 7,400 times the maximum safe human consumption level in March, 2013.
Of all of the fallout from the Fukushima Daiichi incident, Cesium-137 is said to be the one causing the most major health concern and priority for cleanup in Japan. Source: “Cesium 137”

Pathogens that are in play this week:
HIV a/k/a Human Immune Deficiency Types 1 and 2: HIV Type 1 is the most predominant version of this Virus. HIV Type 2 is fairly uncommon and occurs mostly in West Africa. It is less infectious and travels more slowly than its counterpart.
HIV Types have different strains and groups within them because of the fact that, each time the virus replicates, it goes through little mutations. There are so many of these mutations, the anti-viral industry has ended up concentrating their efforts into only certain areas. Since one particular subtype, B, occurs in Western Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas, this is the subtype which has gotten the most attention for the purpose of creating anti-virals, although this only covers about 1/8 of the number of people suffering from it. Half of the people have subtype C, but little to no attention has been given to this group for research, a sorry statement on research today, in my opinion. Source: “HIV Strains and Types”
Herpes Simplex 2 (a/k/a HSV2): is one type of viral disease and is caused by the herpes simplex virus. Herpes Simplex 2 tends to create genital infections along with blisters that can break and cause small ulcers. Sufferers have periods when the disease is “active” and times when they have no symptoms. Source: “Herpes Simplex”
Anthrax: is a type of pathogen caused by a bacterium, called Bacillus anthracis. Infection comes from contact with the spores and may occur in four different ways: through the skin, by inhalation, injection, or inhalation. Symptoms may manifest over a wide range of time, anywhere from 1 day to 2 months.
Typical skin symptoms are: 1. a small skin blister accompanied by surrounding swelling which can turn into painless ulcer with a center which is colored black; 2. Shortness of breath, chest pain, and fever; nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain; and 3. An abscess at the injection site accompanied by a fever.
Individuals may contract the infection from infected animal products; eating, breathing, or touching open skin of a person who has the infection; travelers, postal workers, and military personnel.
There is an anthrax vaccination for individuals (humans and animals) working in high-risk work and otherwise environments. Most people have issues with anthrax in Africa, as well as southern Asia and central Asia. It occurs fairly regularly in southern Europe.
In the world, about 2,000 cases occur a year, with only two cases a year in the US. Almost every case occurs by skin infections. Risk of death from this infection is high, as much as 24%. Although more rare, intestinal infection can occur between 25% and 75%. Similarly, the risk from those with an inhaled exposure, is 50% to 80%.
Reportedly, up to the 20th century, anthrax infections was responsible for the deaths of thousands of people and other animals each year. It has also been used as a weapon in a number of countries. Source: “Anthrax”
