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 B and the color Pink. This means that we have moved completely through the color cycle, of R-O-Y-G-B-I-V, and are transitioning into Red to begin it all over again. Astrologically, we are in the last part of the Sign of Pisces. See how this affects YOU by reading below, and let us know what you think!
See how this all 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 in our first section from throughout the body. As always, any one of these muscles could benefit from a little extra TLC during the week.
Muscles that are in stress this week:
Mentalis: is a chin muscle. Its primary function is to move the skin in the chin upward and inward in order to raise up the central part of the lips in such a way as to create a “pouty” look to the lips. It is sometimes called the “pouting muscle.”
It can also work with the orbicularis oris (mouth) muscle to wrinkle the chin when we show an expression of displeasure of doubt. Source: “Mentalis”
Platysma is a muscle, we’ve talked about before, and that runs from below your upper chest and deltoid up to the bottom of your face. It can lower the jaw, works in part to bring down the lower lip and form a melancholic expression or grimace. Source: “Platysma muscle”
Pterygoid Lateral: is one of your chewing muscles.
Stylohyoid: is a thin muscle that runs from your jaw to the bottom of your ear. Its function is to draw your hyoid bone back in order to elevate the tongue. Source: “Stylohyoid Muscle”
Teres Major: The trigger point(s) in this muscle will be active this week. It is one of the half dozen muscles which make up the so-called “scapulohumeral muscle group.” which act to manipulate and hold together the scapula and humeral bones, thus facilitiating one of the most complex joints in the body. The Teres Major, itself, is found “on the underside of the upper arm, in the area between the shoulder and elbow.”
More specifically, it begins running right below the armpit and ends at the top of the humerus bone, which is the large bone in our upper arm. It is situated near the Teres Minor muscle, with the latter muscle being the primary muscle that runs around the rotator cuff. The Teres Muscle assists the Latissimus Dorsi muscle to move the humerus bone backward and downward when it is extended outward. It also helps to the stabililze the humerus bone.

L-3: is one of our lumbar vertebrae. It is neutrally connected to the sex organs, uterus, bladder, and knees. Subluxations or otherwise problems with this vertebrae can lead to such things bladder issues, menstrual problems, such as painful or irregular periods, bedwettings miscarriages, change of life symptoms, impotence, and knee pains.

Flexor of the Wrist a/k/a Flexor Carpi Radialis- is, according to Wikipedia, a muscle of the human forearm that acts to flex and (radial) abduct the hand. It is easy to take a muscle like this for granted, but this week be careful when lifting items as it may not perform quite as fluidly this week and accidents may occur. A good exercise for this muscle is as follows: “A wrist roller can be used and wrist curls with dumbbells can also be performed.” See “Flexor Carpi Radialis Muscle” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flexor_carpi_radialis_muscle
Gemellus Inferior: is one of the above-mentioned “lateral rotator group” of muscles facilitating various movements of the hip.
Semitendinosus: is one of the “hamstring” and sits at the back and middle of the thigh.
It functions, along with its other “hamstring” muscles (the Biceps Femoris and Semimembranous) to flex our knees and extend our hips. It also helps with rotating the Tibia bone over the Femur bone when our knee is flexed and medially rotates the Femur bone when the hip is extended out. Lastly, it countervails the action of the forward bend at the hips. Source: “Semitendinosus Muscle”
Semimembranosus: This is a hip, thigh, and knee muscle which serves to extend your thigh at the hip and flexes your leg at the knee and medially rotates the knee when the knee is flexed. Source: “Semimembranosus”
Adductor Hallucis Flexor a/k/a Extensor Hallucis Longus Muscle: is a toe muscle that extends the big toe. Source: “Extensor Hallucis Longus Muscle”
Interossei Plantar: is a foot muscle, in the metatarsal region, which help to flex the foot and strengthen the metatarsal arch. Source: Plantar Interossei Muscles”
Vitamins and Other Biochemicals that are Being Influenced this Week:
Hemoglobin: is a molecule of protein which is an important part of our red blood cells, responsible for carrying oxygen from our lungs to rest of the body to aerate it and bringing back carbon dioxide back from those same areas.
This ability to transport oxygen actually comes from an iron atom nestled within the innermost part of each hemoglobin chain of protein. There sits an iron atom embedded inside of what is called a “heme compound” which is inside of each so-called porphyrin compound a/k/a “heme,” which in turn sits within a so-called globulin chain. Each hemoglobin protein contains four globulin chains. The iron atom is what carries the oxygen and carbon dioxide within the blood, and also gives blood its red color.
Not only does hemoglobin facilitate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide; it also has a major role in helping red blood cells to keep their regular shape. Normal red blood cells have the shape of a donut without a hole in the middle (think jelly donut). This is important as a misshapen red blood cell apparently may not function properly and may make it flow less well through your blood vessels to the places it needs to go.

Vitamin E Alpha Tocopherol: If you have ever looked at a Vitamin E bottle, you will see that there are different types of tocopherols in the vitamin, alpha, beta, delta and gamma. Tocopherols are a type of organic chemical compound and the 4 of tocopherols, along with the related compounds, called Tocotrienols, make up what we refer to as “Vitamin E,” but each one of them exhibits the “Vitamin E” qualities of being antioxidants, fat soluble, and help the body with enzymatic activities, gene expression, and neurological function. Unless, you are getting a supplement with so called “mixed tocopherols,” and are instead getting your Vitamin E from just your diet, you are (if you live in America) getting mostly the gamma tocopherol version , which is found in soybean and corn oils, whereas in Europe they are probably getting the alpha tocopherol version found in olive and sunflower oils. They can also be found in nuts, seeds, whole grains, breakfast cereals and tomato sauce, et al. Source: “Tocopherols” and Source: “Vitamin E”
CoEnzyme Q10 a/k/a Ubiquinone a/k/a CoQ10: is a substance which is all found all over the body of most animals, primarily in the mitochondria. It is a fat-soluble substance, which has qualities similar to a vitamin. It is part of the so-called electron transport chain and plays a role in aerobic cellular respiration and this energy is generated in teh body in the form of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
Ninety-five percent of our body’s energy is made this way. It fuels the function of our organs, even those which require the most energy, the kidney, liver, and heart. It also acts as an antioxidant, absorbing free radicals in the body. Source: “CoEnzyme Q10″
Deficiencies in this nutrient have been associated with heart problems, such as heart failure, high blood pressure, arrhythmia, and angina. Additional problems have arisen, such as for gum health, ulcers in the stomach, and regulation of blood sugar. The side effects of taking statins, aching joints and muscles, as well as fatigue, are made worse when individuals taking them are deficient in this nutrient. Source: “
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)”
Glutamine Synthase: is an enzyme that monitors the levels of certain types of amino acids, called “nitrogen-rich amino acids”, and decides when to make more for the body’s use. Our need for such amino acids depends on what we eat, for example. On a day when we eat a lot of protein, we will need the body to make certain enzymes, on a day when we eat a lot of carbohydrates, we need another type of enzyme. When your body makes the right enzymes, it can take the necessary nutrients out of each type of food you eat.
This enzyme also modulates or controls the use of nitrogen inside of our cells. It also helps to make glutamine which builds up nitrogen-rich molecules, like DNA bases and amino acids. Without nitrogen being produced in proper amounts, our cells would actually starve. Yet they cannot have too much either. When they have too much, glutamine synthetase steps in and turns off production till it gets the signal that it needs to start up again. In this sense, glutamine synthetase is like a little molecular computer monitoring nitrogen and amino acid levels. Source: “Glutamine Synthetase”
Medicines that are Being Affected this Week:
Oxytocin: can fit equally within this section as well as our section on biochemicals. It is a hormone and a medication which is utilized to make the uterus contract, for the purpose of beginning the time of labor for a pregnant woman, and can also be used to increase the speed at which labor takes place. Moreover, it serves to cease hemorrhaging after delivery of a child.
It can be administered by injection into a vein or into a muscle.
There are some serious potential side effects to Oxytocin use. There is a risk that this medication may cause too much uterine contraction. It can also cause uterine rupture or water intoxication (from an excessive dose). More minor effects of the medication include nausea or a slow heart rate for a child. Allergies may also result.
As a hormone, Oxytocin is typically made in our hypothalamus and is stored in the back part of our pituitary gland. This hormone is instrumental in the spheres of social bonding, sexual reproduction (for both sexes), and while a woman is in child birth and afterward. This hormone is secreted upon the stretching of the uterus or cervix, while women are in labor, and upon stimulation of the nipples through such activities as breast-feeding.
You have probably heard that the release of this hormone facilitates a mother’s bonding with her baby as well as milk production. Source: “Oxytocin” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxytocin
Human Papilloma Virus: The HPV strains number 19, 25, 34 & 36 is active this week.
Toxins that are Active this Week:
Agent Orange: a very notorious toxin is active bioacoustically this week. It is listed as an aggregation of “chemical defoliants,” utilized very actively by the U.S. Military in many years of the Vietnam War (1961 till 1972) for the coldly and ruthlessly strategic purpose of removing leaves from trees and also of depriving the Vietnamese soldiers (as well as the general populace by extension) of food.
Under the codename of “Operation Ranch Hand,” more than 19 million gallons of this and other herbicides were sprayed over a whopping 4 1/2 million acres of the country of Vietnam. You may not know that Agent Orange contains dioxin, a very common and heavily utilized herbicide for at least two (2) decades prior to its use in the war, and later banned for its tremendous toxicity. It has been found to cause serious health issues, like birth defects, tumors, cancer, rashes, psychological issues, et al, particularly among our military stationed in Vietnam, their families, as well as a great number of Vietnamese citizens.
While the effects of Agent Orange were immediate for many people, the acknowledgment of its connection to those symptoms was many years in coming. As recently as 5 years ago, there was still a debate about whether U.S. Navy personnel, serving on submarines during the war should be considered eligible to receive benefits as Agent Orange victims.
You may know that Agent Orange was one of a number of “colors” of herbicide used in Vietnam. There was Agent Blue, Agent Green, Agent Pink, Agent Purple, and Agent White which made up the so-called “Rainbow Herbicides” used during that time. Agent Orange was said to be the most successful and thus was utilized the most.
Agent Orange effects became the subject of a class action suit in the 1970’s and there was a settlement for $180 million, which was increased to $2.4 by 1988 before all was said and done.
Three (3) years later, in 1991, President George H.W. Bush signed a law called “the Agent Orange Act,” which required that certain diseases which could be linked to defoliants (such as soft tissue sarcomas, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, soft tissue sarcomas and chloracne) would have to be treated as the result of military wartime service.
