How Are Universal Frequencies Affecting You This Week (September 3-9, 2018)?

By Robert G. O’Leary and Sharry Edwards | The Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth

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 still in the color, Yellow Green, represented by the end of the note of F & astrologically we are in the sign of Virgo. This means that we are in the 3rd to 4th part of the color scheme of ROYGBIV. 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.

Muscles affected this week:

C-5: is one of your vertebrae, which sits at the bottom of your neck. It acts through the nerve connections, with your vocal cords, neck glands, and pharynx. Because of these connections, and depending upon your brain dominance, you may feel these muscles weaker or stronger this week. Those who use their voices a lot for public speaking or singing, et al, would do well to take more time with your vocal exercises in order to help them to serve you well this week.

You may also find that you experience hoarseness or a sore throat this week. It may feel like you are coming down with something, but these may pass as the week progresses. Source: “Interactive Spine” 

Interspinales: We take the spine for granted, but it is made up of a significant number of muscles and nerves which enable it to support us physically and in so many other ways. There are layers of muscles in your back that attach to, and around, the spine, called superficial, intermediate, and deep, respectively. The interspinales muscles are in the deep muscle group. It is part of a subgroup, called the “segmental muscles” (as opposed to the spinotransversales, erector spinae/transversospinales and suboccipital muscles in the deep muscle group). The segmental muscles connects between different spinal segments on either side in line with what they call the “interspinous ligament”. The interspinales muscles are found in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar region and can be found in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions, meaning most of your back (only omitting the sacral vertebrae). Source: “Interspinales”

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”

Semispinalis Thoracis: Another back muscle – this one originates from the Sixth Throacic Vertebrae and extends to the Cervical 6th Vertebrae, which is about half of the back and the first part of the neck. This large muscle allows us to extend the cervical part of the spine (i.e., your neck) and the thoracic section of your back. It also allows us to flex those same parts of the body side-to-side as well as to rotate them. Source: “Semispinalis Throacis Muscle”

T-10: is one of your vertebrae which sits in your middle back region. It acts through nerve connections to influence our kidneys. Dysfunction in this area may bring on kidney issues, hardening of your arteries, chronic fatigue, and conditions called pyelitis and nephritis. Source: “Interactive Spine” 

Supraspinatus: This muscle assists your deltoid (one of the shoulder muscles) to begin the action of abducting the arm at joint of the shoulder (a joint called the glenohumeral joint). It also assists with keeping the shoulder stabilized. One of the trigger points for this muscle is active this week. Source: “Supraspinatus Muscles”

Latissimus Dorsi: is flat and large muscle that connects between the back of the arm and the back, one which is partly covered by the trapezius muscle. The word latissimus dorsi (which is pluralized as latissimi dorsi) is a Latin word which means the “broadest [muscle] of the back”, and is colloquially called “lats,” a usage you will especially hear around workout centers.

This muscle is responsible for such motions as “extensionadduction, transverse extension also known as horizontal abduction, flexion from an extended position, and (medial) internal rotation of the shoulder joint. It also has a synergistic role in extension and lateral flexion of the lumbar spine.”

This muscle is one of the muscles used while doing pull ups, at which time it will also affect the movement of the scapulae. This muscle can be trained for increased strength, power, or size with such exercises as pull-downs and pull-ups (a/k/a chin-ups), rowing exercises, pull-overs, deadlifts, and lat pull-ins. Source: “Latissimus Dorsi Muscle” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latissimus_dorsi_muscle

Serratus Anterior: is a muscle that sits under the arms and just behind the chest muscles. It functions to pull the scapula forward around the thorax, so it counters the motion of the rhomboid muscle. It also acts on the scapula to help to elevate the arm and works with the scapula and rhomboids to help with breathing. One helpful way to think about this muscle is as the “big swing muscle” or “boxer’s muscle” as it is mostly responsible for protraction of the scapula, meaning it pulls it forward and around your rib cage in order to help you to throw a punch. Lastly, this very useful muscle allows us to lift a weight up and overhead by coordinating with our trapezius muscles. The trigger point for this muscle is active this week. Source: “Serratus Anterior Muscle”

Quadrate of Loins a/k/a Lumbar Quadrate Muscle: Some muscles are just so big that their striations relate to different Frequency Equivalents (FEs) [TM]. The Deltoid Muscle is another muscle that has numerous striations and has their Frequency Equivalents generally clustered in a certain range of frequencies.

So, if you have issues with the Quadrate of Loins in general, you may have been “feeling” that muscle quite a bit in the last couple of weeks. Likewise, those with shoulder issues will “feel” that muscle when we enter the time of year in which the Frequency Equivalents of the deltoid cluster roll around.

This is also a muscle which originates from the iliac crest, the lower lumbar vertebrae, and the iliolumbar ligament, and inserts on the higher end into the twelfth rib and upper lumbar vertebrae. It receives its neural (i.e., nerve) energy from the so-called “upper lumbar nerve.” This muscle functions to abduct the trunk of the body. Source: “Lumbar Quadrate Muscle”

Rectus Abdominus: This is a large muscle in your abdomen that countervails the action of your diaphragm, but it does so much more, as indicated by www.innerbodyimage.com, a website, in the following quote:

The rectus abdominis muscles, commonly referred to as the “abs,” are a pair of long, flat muscles that extend vertically along the entire length of the abdomen adjacent to the umbilicus. Each muscle consists of a string of four fleshy muscular bodies connected by narrow bands of tendon, which give it a lumpy appearance when well defined and tensed. This lumpy appearance results in the rectus abdominis muscles being referred to as the “six-pack.”
The name rectus abdominis comes from the Latin words for “straight” and “abdominal,” indicating that its fibers run in a straight vertical line through the abdominal region of the body.

The rectus abdominis has its origins along the superior edge of the pubis bone and the pubic symphysis in the pelvis. Its insertions are at the inferior edges of the costal cartilages of the fifth through seventh ribs and at the xiphoid process of the sternum. A covering of connective tissue known as the rectus sheath surrounds the rectus abdominis muscles and provides attachment points for the internal and external oblique muscles that flank them on both sides. Between the rectus abdominis muscles is a thick mass of white fibrous connective tissue called the linea alba that unites the abdominal muscles of the left and right sides.

The rectus abdominis muscle performs the important task of flexing the torso and spine in the abdominal region. It does this by pulling the ribcage closer to the pelvis. The rectus abdominis can also tense to contract the abdomen without moving the torso, as in sucking in one’s gut. Contraction of the abdomen results in increased pressure within the abdominopelvic cavity and is useful to push substances out of the body during exhalation, defecation, and urination. Source: “Rectus Abdominis Muscle” 

Pyramidalis: a small muscle in the lower abdomen behind the Rectus Abdominus that is absent in about 1 in 5 human beings (Source: “Pyramidalis”);

S-5: is a part of your sacral vertebrae or sacrum. It acts through the nerve connections, to influence your bum and hip bones. Dysfunction in this area may manifest as sacroiliac conditions. Source: “Interactive Spine” https://www.chiroone.net

Vastus Intermedius: is a muscle which begins at the front and side surfaces of the upper 2/3’s of the femur bone, and sits under the rectus femoris muscle and from the lower area of the lateral intermuscular septum. It stops deep inside of the quadriceps femoris muscle’s tendon.

This muscle runs parallel to the vastus medialis muscle and sometimes look like they are together as the same muscle.

This muscle is a part of the so-called quadriceps muscle, abbreviated as “quads.” Yet, it is one of the harder to stretch muscles, particularly once you have flexed your knee fully. It is a deeper muscle than the vastus lateralis and vastus medialis, making it harder to massage than the other two muscles. Source: “Vastus Intermedius Muscle” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vastus_intermedius_muscle

Lumbricales: muscles of the hand working to facilitate certain hand movement, such as the upswing in handwriting and these muscles are unique in that they connect to tendons and not to bone (Source: “Lumbricales of the hand” ).

In our biochemicals section, we have a cell salt (one of a set of biochemicals which I find fascinating), an often used and impactful amino acid, an enzyme, as well as one of the most popular probiotics. Lastly, it contains one of the most popular vitamins on the market, Vitamin C.

Biochemicals in stress this week:

Potassium Phosphate Cell Salt: We have not seen cell salts in a while. Not often talked about in general, or even alternative media, they are really amazing. Little tiny pills work from the cellular level to support your body, in its efforts to self-maintain and self-heal, in so many different ways. This particular cell salt works particularly in the nerves and muscles of the body, helping the body to address such things as nervousness (from the mundane type up to the level of nervousness that affects organs of the body, such as so-called “nervous heart trouble”), melancholy, and sleep discomfort, as well as learning disorders.  Source: “No. 5. (6) Potassium phosphate – Kali Phos”

Arginine: This is an amino acid that has been found to have a powerful impact on several body
systems and is used in certain medications (Ibuprofen) and in the following medical treatments:

-Congestive heart failure;
-Chest pain;
-High blood pressure;
-Coronary artery disease; -Intermittent claudication (leg pain due to blocked arteries);
-Chemotherapy; and
-Fighting weight loss in AIDS patients;
-Reducing infections;
-improving would healing;
-Shortening recovery time after surgery;
-In the elderly, decreased mental capacity (i.e., senile dementia);
-Erectile Dysfunction; and
-Male Infertility

Others use it for the following purposes:

-Preventing the common cold;
-Improving kidney function after having a kidney transplant;
-Pre-eclampsia (i.e., high blood pressure during pregnancy);
-Improvement of athletic performance;
-topically, to speed up would healing;
-topically, to increase blood flow in cold hands and feet, particularly for diabetes sufferers;
-topically, for men and women with sexual problems;
-Boosting of the immune system function; and
-Preventing inflammation in the digestive tract of premature infants.

It reportedly works by being converted by your body into another chemical, nitric oxide, which opens your blood vessels wider to improve the flow of blood and lower pressure and by stimulating a release of human growth hormone, insulin and other beneficial chemicals in the body. Source: “L-Arginine”

Lactobacillus Acidophilus: is a type of “friendly” bacteria, one of many. Found in yogurts and dietary supplements, as well as our digestive urinary and genital tracts, it is utilized to aid in addressing the following:

-Lactose Intolerance;
-Diarrhea;
-Colic;
-Crohn’s Disease;
-Irritable Bowel Syndrome;
-Inflammation in the colon;
-H Pylori;
-Necrotizing Enterocolitis;
-Vaginal yeast infection & UTIs;
-Childhood respiratory infections;
-Fever blisters;
-Canker sores;
-Eczema;
-Acne;
-High cholesterol;
-Lyme Disease;
-Hives;
-Boost the immune system; and
-The common cold in adults. Source: “Lactobacillus” 

Ascorbate (a/k/a Vitamin C): one of the important vitamins in our Recommended Daily Allowance List and also used by some beneficially in far larger doses, intravenously and orally. Source: “Vitamin C” 

Amylase: is an enzyme that you don’t hear much about. Here is more about it:

Amylase /ˈæmɪleɪz/ is an enzyme that catalyses the hydrolysis of starch into sugars. Amylase is present in the saliva of humans and some other mammals, where it begins the chemical process of digestion. Foods that contain large amounts of starch but little sugar, such as rice and potatoes, may acquire a slightly sweet taste as they are chewed because amylase degrades some of their starch into sugar. The pancreas and salivary gland make amylase (alpha amylase) to hydrolyse dietary starch into disaccharides and trisaccharides which are converted by other enzymes to glucose to supply the body with energy. Plants and some bacteria also produce amylase. As diastase, amylase was the first enzyme to be discovered and isolated (by Anselme Payen in 1833). [1] Specific amylase proteins are designated by different Greek letters. All amylases are glycoside hydrolases and act on α-1,4-glycosidic bonds. Source: “Amylase”

Cis-Aconitic Acid: is one part of the Krebs Cycle (a/k/a the “Citric Acid Cycle” or the “Tricarboxylic Acid”), which is an important body system responsible for energy production-one that the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth analyzes regularly for its clients with fatigue and other issues. More specific information about this important cycle is as follows:

The Citric Acid Cycle…is a series of chemical reactions used by all aerobic organisms to generate energy through the oxidation of acetate derived from carbohydrates, fats and proteins into carbon dioxide and chemical energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). In addition, the cycle provides precursors of certain amino acids as well as the reducing agent NADH that is used in numerous other biochemical reactions. Its central importance to many biochemical pathways suggests that it was one of the earliest established components of cellular metabolism and may have originated abiogenically.[3][4]

The name of this metabolic pathway is derived from citric acid (a type of tricarboxylic acid) that is consumed and then regenerated by this sequence of reactions to complete the cycle. In addition, the cycle consumes acetate (in the form of acetyl-CoA) and water, reduces NAD+ to NADH, and produces carbon dioxide as a waste byproduct. The NADH generated by the TCA cycle is fed into the oxidative phosphorylation (electron transport) pathway. The net result of these two closely linked pathways is the oxidation of nutrients to produce usable chemical energy in the form of ATP.

In eukaryotic cells, the citric acid cycle occurs in the matrix of the mitochondrion. In prokaryotic cells, such as bacteria which lack mitochondria, the TCA reaction sequence is performed in the cytosol with the proton gradient for ATP production being across the cell’s surface (plasma membrane) rather than the inner membrane of the mitochondrion.

Enkephalin Met-5: is one of the chemicals in our body that help the body deal with pain. Source: “Enkephalin Met-5 Source: Contribution of Endogenous Enkephalins to the Enhanced Analgesic Effects of Supraspinal m Opioid Receptor Agonists after Inflammatory Injury” and Source: “Enkephalin”

Vitamin K: found in Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and leafy green vegetables, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts, Vitamin K is used to improve blood clotting, prevent and treat weak bones due to osteoporosis, and even counteracts the symptom of itching that victims of the liver disease, biliary cirrhosis, often suffer. Topically it can be used as a cream for spider veins, bruising, scars, rosacea, burns and even stretch marks. Source: Find a Vitamin or Supplement: Vitamin K”

Strontium: is one of the chemical elements, with the symbol Sr, with an atomic number of 38. It is also an alkaline earth metal having a soft, yellowish and silver-white metal which is very reactive chemically. When oxidized, it forms a dark layer. It often bonds with the minerals putnisite, strontianite, and Celestine.

Strontium is stable in its natural state, but has been synthesized to become a radioactive isotope and is one of the most dangerous parts of nuclear testing fallout. On the periodic table, Strontium is a neighbor of calcium which means that it is chemically similar. As such, it is easily absorbed by the body, like calcium. This means that it reaches our bones, where it attaches to the surface. For young children, it can adversely affect bone growth.

This mineral was named by its discoverers, Adair Crawford and William Cruickshank, out of respect for a Scottish village, called Strontian, which was located near the site in which it was discovered in 1790. It has since been used in the processing of beets, cathode ray tubes for television (to block the emission of X-Rays out of television program emissions), faceplate glass, but its use has fallen off since cathode ray tubes and other uses of the element have declined dramatically. One area in which it is still used, in the form of Strontium Salts, where it is used to give fireworks their red color. Source: “Strontium” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strontium

Lipotropin Hormone: This is a hormone you hardly ever hear about. Learn more about it below:

Lipotropin is an amino acid created naturally by the human pituitary gland that functions as a growth hormone. In particular, it stimulates the growth of soft muscle fibers, and can also play a role in proper metabolic functioning. Most healthy people produce the right amounts to facilitate normal growth and development, but the hormone has been synthesized and extracted for use in medications as well, and is often a part of treatment for various developmental and growth issues. People sometimes also take supplements or synthetic versions in order to intentionally grow healthy muscles larger. This practice is perhaps most popular amongst athletes and bodybuilders. Since the hormone is natural it doesn’t usually show up on steroid screens or other doping tests, but excessive use has nevertheless been banned by many professional sporting associations. People sometimes also choose this supplement as a means of countering the natural effects of aging, but results in these cases tend to be mixed.

Secretion Basics: The hormone is secreted by the pituitary gland, which is the hormonal center in healthy humans, and its synthesis can be somewhat complex. In most cases the pituitary gland begins by secreting a substance known as pro-opiomelanocortin, which then splits, or “cleaves,” to form to separate substances: lipotropin and the related hormone adrenocorticotropin. Both are important to human growth, though they perform different roles and in different places. Source: “What is Lipotropin”

Medicines affected this week:

Ampicillin: Ampicillin is a penicillin antibiotic that fights bacteria. Ampicillin is used to treat or prevent many different types of infections such as bladder infections, pneumonia, gonorrhea, meningitis, or infections of the stomach or intestines. Source: “What is Ampicilin”

In our pathogens section, we have one of the agents which causes urinary tract infections and a biochemical which causes an infection which can adversely affect your liver.

Pathogens in play this week:

Proteus Mirabilis (2nd Range): While most Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are caused by E. Coli, this pathogen also can cause it. Yet, this pathogen does not seem to occur spontaneously in the typical case, but rather seems to manifest most often in those with long-term catherizations or other interactions with hospital equipment. The following are places in the body it can infect and the symptoms that may accompany the infection:

If this pathogen manifests in the urethra: it can cause increased frequency of urination and pyuria (a high white blood cell urine count that is sometimes accompanied by pus);
If this pathogen moves to the bladder, it can cause back pain, pain above the pubic area, urinary urgency and a high red blood cell urine count (i.e., hematuria), and high blood cell urine count (pyuria-that can sometimes be accompanied by pus);
If this pathogen is present in the kidneys: a kidney infection with nausea and vomiting;
If this pathogen is present in the lungs: pneumonia (i.e., symptoms of chills, fever, pain in the chest and cough);
If this pathogen is present in the prostate: it can cause chills, fever, and prostate in men; and finally
If this pathogen is present in the bloodstream: via the contracting of a wound with an infected surface and may cause sepsis and systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), which has a mortality rate of 20% to 50%. Source: “Student Presentation on Proteus Mirabilis” 

Hepatitis B a/k/a HBV: is a type of disease which may cause chronic and acute infections, which particularly affect the liver. This type of infectious disease can affect people to various degrees. Such an infection may cause no symptoms, whereas some people may come down with vomiting, excessive fatigue, dark urine, vomiting, and abdominal pain. This can last for as many as a few weeks. Rarely, a person can die from this disease.

As many as 90% of those infected with this virus will have the chronic version of the disease. This means that they will likely have no symptoms, but they may eventually develop liver cancer or cirrhosis of the liver. Those who contract these diseases can die in 15% to 25% of the cases.

People can get the virus through exchange of body fluids or contact with infected blood, dialysis, living with an infected person, or traveling to an area where it is common. Most people contract the disease via intravenous drug use or sexual intercourse.

This type of virus can reportedly not be contracted through kissing, hugging sneezing, coughing sharing utensils, holding hands or breastfeeding. The virus is detected typically through a blood test.

There has been a vaccine for this virus since 1982, and reportedly works 95% of the time. It is recommended, in many countries, that blood of those giving transfusions be tested for the virus. It is also recommended that condoms be used to prevent spreading the disease. IN addition to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis comes in 4 other strains, Hepatitis A, C, D, and E.

How Are Universal Frequencies Affecting You this Week (July 8-14, 2018)?

By Robert O’Leary and Sharry Edwards | The Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth

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 D# and the color OrangeYellow. This means that we are bridging the gap between the second and third part of the color cycle (remember “ROYGBIV). Astrologically, we are still in the Sign of Cancer. 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 only a few muscles affected by the universal frequencies – and all of them are in the upper body. Any one of these muscles could benefit from a little extra TLC this week. Here is our list proceeding from head to toe:

Muscles that are being affected this week:

Auricularis Anterior: This muscle is the tiniest of 3 auricular muscles. It is thin and fan-shaped with pale and non-distinct fibers. The muscle comes up from the side edge of the galea aponeurotica (a dense, tough layer of fibrous tissue) and the fibers come together to insert into a part of the front of the helix muscle, which underlies the top of your earlobe. Source: “Anterior Auricular Muscle” 

Deltoid: is a major shoulder muscle that is responsible for giving your shoulder its rounded contour. The world “deltoid” apparently comes from the Greek capital letter delta, as it seems to have the same shape. It has many functions: a. it is the primary muscle responsible for all of the arm and shoulder movements as well as stabilization of the shoulder so that it does not dislocate when you carry heavy loads. Source: “Deltoid Muscle” 

Longissimus Capitis: The longissimus is a long muscle that runs along your spine. The Longissimus Capitis lies between the Longissimus Cervicis and Semispinalis Capitis Muscle. Source: “Longissimus” 

This muscle functions to extend and hyperextend the head laterally as well as rotating and flexing the head to the same side. Source: “Longissimus Capitis Muscle”

A vitamin, two minerals, two hormones, and a cell salt are part of our substantial biochemical list this week:

Vitamins, minerals and other biochemical affected this week

Potassium: you know as a mineral and you probably hear about it being in some of your foods or listed on vitamin and mineral bottles. In fact, it is a mineral that is considered “crucial for life,” and particularly required for support of your and my heart, kidney and general organ health.

In theory, we should get enough Potassium from our diet, but it is believed that many Americans are deficient in it. If you are deficient, you may run the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, stroke, arthritis, infertility and digestive disorders.

People who are at risk for low Potassium are those who use some kinds of birth control pills or diuretics, athletes, those in very physically active jobs, those with Crohn’s Disease, those with eating disorders, or those who are addicted to alcohol or cigarettes.

Some foods rich in Potassium are avocados, bananas, citrus, green and leafy veggies, potatoes and milk. Boiling and certain other types of cooking may destroy the potassium in some foods.

The Institute of Medicine suggests that individuals should take between 400 mgs. /day and 5,100 mgs. /day, as the following list suggests and with a full glass of water:

0-6 mos.: 400 mg. /day

7-12 mos.: 700 mg./day

1-3 years: 3,000 mg./day

4-8 years: 3,800 mg./day

9-13 years: 4,500 mg./day

14 years and up: 4,700 mg./day

Pregnant women: 4,700 mg./day

Breastfeeding women: 5,100 mg./day

Magnesium Chloride: is a cell salt that helps your body, among other things, to make hydrochloric acid which allows you to digest food, absorb your vitamins and minerals, and to keep harmful bacteria at bay. Magnesium compounds are also helpful for “reducing migraines, depression, anxiety, sleeplessness and memory…” Source: “Magnesium Chloride: The Master Magnesium Compound”

Etiocobalamin: is a type of Vitamin B-12. Source: “Etiocobalamin” . It is considered particularly useful in muscle strength and health. Source: “Radiation Charts”  and Source: “Kijini: The Future of Health and Wellness” 

Progesterone: is a major hormone in our bodies and is responsible for stimulating and regulating numerous bodily functions including such things as getting the body ready for pregnancy, maintaining pregnancy, and generally regulating the menstrual cycle. It is produced in the ovaries, adrenal glands, as well as the placenta (after a woman gets pregnant). It also plays a role in stimulating sexual desire.

Both estrogen and progesterone are produced, during the reproductive years, when the ovarian follicle is produced by the action of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) [both of which are made in the pituitary gland).

Estrogen thickens the uterine lining to get the body ready for the possibility of fertilization of an egg. Progesterone levels go up in the second half of the menstrual cycle and make the endometrium secret specialized proteins which prepare the endometrium to accommodate and feed an implanted fertilized egg. Of course, if fertilization doesn’t occur, progesterone and estrogen levels drop and the endometrium will begin to break down.

If fertilization happens, progesterone will continue to be produced within the placenta. Estrogen levels will also remain high and prevent further ovulation during pregnancy. Progesterone also facilitates the growth of the milk-making glands in the breast for future feeding of the baby. Source: “Progesterone” 

Cannabidiol: Cannabidiol a/k/a CBD: while it has been demonized over the years by vested interests in competing industries, was traditionally utilized and reputedly well-established as an anti-asthmatic, an analgesic, and anti-rheumatic. It has also been suggested to be an anti-inflammatory, reputedly more effective than aspirin.

It also has shown promise in addressing or improving such conditions as:

Dystonia;

Huntington Disease;

Epilepsy;

Certain sleep disorders; and

Certain psychotic conditions.

And, in case you’re wondering, Cannabidiol is not the psychoactive part of the marijuana plant.  Source: “Cannabidiol: The Wonder Drug of the 21st Century?”

DMSO: is a substance used medically as a topical agent to bring medicines through the skin without harming it. It is also seem in alternative medicine as a promising therapy for cancer, inflammation, reducing pain for those with shingles and as beneficial for those with scleroderma. It is FDA-approved only for Interstitial Cystitis, a bladder issue in humans. Source: “What ever happened to DMSO for cancer and what is it anyway?”

It is also cleared for use with horses, as a liniment, et al. Source: “Dimethyl Sulfoxide”

Lipase: is an enzyme produced in the pancreas and helps us to absorb fats. Industrially, it is used in baking and laundry detergent products, as well as alternative fuels such as biofuels. It is used in medical diagnostics as a way to detect if a client or patient has acute pancreatitis and other pancreatic conditions. Source: “Lipase”

Platelet-derived growth factor (a/k/a PDGF): Like Human Growth Hormone and Epidermal Growth Factor, this is one of many ways that your body physically grows and regrows its cells. They are made up of proteins. This particular growth factor plays a primary role in the formation and growth of blood vessels.  PDGF is formed in our blood platelets and also smooth muscles cells, endothelial cells, and activated macrophages.

A form of this used by doctors to heal chronic ulcers, in periodontistry to stop bone loss, and in orthopedic surgery. Source: “Platelet-Derived Growth Factor”

Some popular medicines are in our list this week, including one which is said to treat high blood pressure, one for depression, and another for the relaxation of muscles:

Medicines affected this week:

Losartan: is a type of medicine for high blood pressure, or hypertension. It is in the category of angiotensin II receptor antagonist drugs. Actually, it was the first such medication. It is marketed by Merck & Co. Inc., under the name Cozaar, and is also available as a generic drug. Source: “Losartan” 

Bupropion: is a type of medication used for different purposes, but primarily as an antidepressant and way to cease smoking. You have heard it referred to in the market as wellbutrin or Zyban, etc. It has been one of the most often prescribed drugs for depression. Most countries only sell it with a prescription.

It is also called a norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor (NDRI) and is therefore different from the other category of antidepressants, which are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI). While often enough useful on its own, Bupropion is also prescribed in addition to SSRI’s when those drugs are not quite doing the trick on their own.

Two important ways in which this medication differs from the others is that it does not cause as much weight gain or sexual dysfunction as SSRIs do.  However, it can cause in increased risk of epileptic seizures. When this happened some years back, it was temporarily off the market and then reentered the marked at a reduced dosage. Source: “Bupropion”

A number of pathogens are asserting themselves this week, one which causes many of our colds, a cause of strep throat and mononucleosis, among others. So, keep up your immune resistance this week as best you can.

DMSO: is a substance used medically as a topical agent to bring medicines through the skin without harming it. It is also seem in alternative medicine as a promising therapy for cancer, inflammation, reducing pain for those with shingles and as beneficial for those with scleroderma. It is FDA-approved only for Interstitial Cystitis, a bladder issue in humans. Source: “What ever happened to DMSO for cancer and what is it anyway?”

It is also cleared for use with horses, as a liniment, et al. Source: “Dimethyl Sulfoxide”

Flexeril: is a muscle relaxant that works blocking nerve impulses that register as pain when they reach the brain. It is also used, along with physical therapy and rest to treat conditions in the skeletal muscles. Source: “Flexeril”

Interferon-B:  is something that you may not have heard about. They are part of your body and are produced in and secreted out of your immune system’s cells. Examples of these are white blood cells, which you have heard about as well as so-called natural killer cells, fibroblasts and epithelial cells, about which you have probably not heard. There are alpha, beta and gamma versions of interferon and each one has different, but overlapping effects. Source: “Interferon” 

Interferon-b has been used to slow the progress of the disease known as multiple sclerosis and is said to be able to reduce the rate of relapse by 18% to 38%. Source: Interferon-beta-1a

Pathogens that are active this week:

Human Rhinovirus: Discovered in the 1950s, the Human Rhinovirus has been the cause of more than 50% of colds. This type of illness has been costly to work attendance and productivity and been the reason for many medical visits. There are three different groups of this, designated as group A, B, or C. This pathogen typically manifests as an upper respiratory tract infection, otitis media, and sinusitis, but also affecting the lower respiratory tract affecting patients with “asthma, infants, elderly patients, and immunocompromised […bodies].” Source: “Human Rhinoviruses” 

Alpha Streptococcus a/k/a Streptococcus Pyogenes: is a pathogen that can cause pharyngitis, or “strep throat” and less often the skin condition Impetigo. This condition seems to manifest mostly in children ages 5 to 15 years.  Source: “BACTERIOLOGY – CHAPTER TWELVE  Streptococci  GROUPS A, B, d AND OTHERS enterococcus faecalis “ 

Another common childhood illness is the so-called “Mono” or Infectious Mononucleosis. It is also called…

Epstein-Barre Virus a/k/a EBV: This virus is also called human herpesvirus 4 (HHV-4). EBV has been found to have some link with certain types of cancer, such as Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Burkitt’s Lyphoma, gastric cancer, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and some conditions which are linked with HIV.

Evidence is accumulating which shows that EBV may be also linked to a higher risk of autoimmune diseases, like lupus, multiple sclerosis, dermatomyositis, and rheumatoid arthritis, and the so-called Sjogren’s Syndrome. The effect of EBV is rather serious, as there is some evidence that as many as 200,000 cases of cancer per year can be attributed to the role played by EBV.

So, how does this virus get around? It is able to be transferred through saliva and genital secretions.

Exposure can happen as early as in childhood, manifest as mild cold symptoms; and for teens can manifest as mononucleosis. Source: “Epstein-Barr Virus”  

Human Papilloma Virus: The HPV strains number 50 is active this week.

Human Cytomegalovirus: is a part of the herpes virus family, Herpesviridge. You may hear it referred to as Human Herpesvirus 5. This one is often associated with the salivary glands, although it may be present in other parts of the body, as well.

This type of virus will not typically have any impact on healthy people, it can be very harmful, or life-threatening, to those who immune compromised, newborn babies, or those having recently received an implant. Once it has entered the body, it can lay dormant for the rest of a person’s life. It can manifest as malignant cancers, such as in the case of prostate cancer.

It is found all over the world and is believed to be in between 60% and 70% of those adults in industrialized countries, and nearly everyone in developing countries. It is the virus most often transmitted to developing fetuses and constitutes the most significant cause of viral-based birth defects in industrialized countries, causing such things as learning disabilities, deafness, and so-called intellectual disabilitySource: “Human Cytolomegalovirus” 

There are no substantial toxins to be concerned about in our list this week.

How Are Universal Frequencies Affecting You this Week (June 11-16, 2018)?

By Robert G. O’Leary and Sharry Edwards | The Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth

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 D and the color Orange. This means that we are in the second part of the color cycle (remember “ROYGBIV). Astrologically, we are still in the Sign of Gemini. 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 various muscles, two in the eye, many in and around the neck, and running into the abdomen, some vertebrae, along with one arm muscle, and a foot muscle. Any one of these muscles could benefit from a little extra TLC this week:

Muscles that are being affected this week:

Orbicularis Oculi: is one of the eyelid muscles and 1 of 2 major parts that form the core of the eyelid, the other being something called the tarsal plate. Skeletal muscle fibers comprise this muscle and the so-called “facial nerve,” feeds it energy. It provides such control to the movement of this region that it is considered an important muscle in facilitating with our facial expressions.

Its specific location is surrounding the eyes and sits just beneath the skin. Aside from helping to make our eyes “expressive,” it also functions to close the eyelid, help with secreting and draining our tears.

It is a somewhat complex, albeit small, muscle as it includes 3 parts: an “orbital portion,” which is a voluntary muscle serving to close our eyes firmly, a “palpebral portion,” which is an involuntary muscle and thus closes our eyes in the process of blinking; and the “lacrimal portion,” which presses down on the so-called lacrimal sac (which holds our tears) and facilitates the transmission of tears. Source: “Orbicularis Oculi”

Geniohyoid: is a muscle in the neck region, sitting toward the front of the neck.  It is a narrow muscle and sits above the mylohyoid muscle. Its name comes from the word “chin” (the prefix “genio” being a standard prefix for words characterizing the chin) and was used because this muscle passes from the chin to the hyoid bone.

This muscle functions to lift up the hyoid bone during the action of swallowing. It works with the digastric and mylohyoid muscles to lift up the hyoid bone as each bolus of food is pushed from the mouth into the pharynx. This muscle also helps to bring down the mandible.  Source: “Geniohyoid”

Sternothyroid: The sternothyroid muscle, also called the sternothyroideus, and sits in the neck area. It runs from the breastbone (i.e., sternum) to outside edge of the thyroid cartilage, which is found just behind the hyoid. It functions bring down the larynx, or voice box, in order to create vocal sound.

This muscles name sounds a lot like another muscle, the sternohyoid thyroid muscle, but the sternothyroid muscle is not as long and is wider than the sternohyoid muscle. These muscles actually sit very closely to one another with the sternothyroid muscle being beneath the sternohyoid muscle.

The sternothyroid’s primary function is to depress the larynx. This function is crucial to the actions of chewing and swallowing. In addition, this muscle plays an important role in determining our vocal range, pitch control and vocal volume – some very important functions for everyday life, but particularly for public speakers and singers.

Consequently, injuries or traumas to this muscle can have substantial effect upon our ability to eat and vocalize. Source: “Sternothyroid”

Cricoarytenoid Lateral: is one of your vocal cord muscles

C-1: is one of your vertebrae; in fact it is the top most vertebrae. It has an effect upon the blood supply nourishing your brain, head, scalp, face bones, middle ear, pituitary gland and sympathetic nervous system. When this vertebrae is out of alignment (i.e., subluxated) or otherwise not functioning properly, one may have symptoms manifest, such as high blood pressure, migraine headaches, regular headaches, nervousness and nervous breakdowns, insomnia, head cold, amnesia, chronic tiredness, and dizziness. Source: “Interactive Spine” www.chiroone.net/interactive-spine

T-12: is one of your vertebrae. It has an effect uon the small intestines and the circulation of lymph throughout your body. When thgis vertebrae is subluxated or otherwise not functioning properly, symtoms may manifest, such as gas pains, rheumatism, and certain types of sterility. Source: “Interactive Spine” www.chiroone.net/interactive-spine

T-6: is one of your vertebrae. It has an effect upon the stomach area. When this vertebrae is subluxated or otherwise not functioning properly, symptoms can manifest such as indigestion, heartburn, nervous stomach, and dyspepsia. Source: “Interactive Spine” www.chiroone.net/interactive-spine

Subclavius: is a muscle that you don’t often hear about. It is near the so-called “pecs,” and is small in size and triangular in shape, and sits between the collar bone and the highest rib. It assists the pectoralis muscles to make up the back wall of the so-called axilla.

It functions to depress or bring down the shoulder, and to move it forward. It also protects other parts of the body nearby in case of a broken collar bone (such as a brachial plexus and subclavian vessels, a commonly broken bone.

The subclavius protects the underlying brachial plexus and subclavian vessels from a broken clavicle – the most frequently broken long bone. Source: “Subclavius Muscle”

Supinator: is one of your forearm muscles. It’s one of the broader muscles in this area and sits in the back or posterior part of the forearm and curves around the upper part of the radius bone. Its function is, as its name suggests, to “supinate” the arm.

Sometimes, this muscle area gets strained from too much, or repetitive supination and pronation, and can create a condition called supinator entrapment syndrome which creates a paralysis in certain muscles of the forearm. The Biceps Brachii Muscle is more activated when lifting a heavy object or attempting to supinate the muscle under resistance. The supinator is most active when the muscle is not doing heavy lifting or when meeting no resistance. Source: “Supinator”

Transversus Abdominus (a/k/a Transverse Abdominus, Transversalis Muscle and Transversus Abdominus Muscle): is one of your abdominal muscles that is said to be an important part of “the core.” It stands on the side of your abdomen and assists with compressing your ribs and viscera, as well as provide thoracic and pelvic stability.  It is an important muscle to compress when doing heavy lifting in order to protect your back. It is also an instrumental muscle to help pregnant women deliver a child.

The transverse abdominal helps to compress the ribs and viscera, providing thoracic and pelvic. This muscle, in helping to stabilize the spine, actually helps your nervous system to coordinate your arms and legs to function better individually and collectively. This muscle works in tandem with other muscles, called “multifidi.” Source: “Transverse Abdominal Muscle”

Quadratus Lumborum (a/k/a Quadratus of Loins): is a lower back muscle also affected last week. Source: “Quadratus Lumborum”

Psoas: Is a muscle in your hip area which joins in with another muscle, the “Iliacus Muscle” to be called the iliopsoas muscle, and serves to lift/flex your femur bone, bending your trunk forward from a standing position or doing a sit-up from a lying down position. The word “psoas,” comes from the Greek word “psoa” and means the “loin region.” It is located alongside the spinal column in the lumbar (i.e., lower back) region.”), and sits on top of the brim of the pelvis. Source: “Psoas Major Muscle”

Interossei Plantar: is a foot muscle, in the metatarsal region, which helps to flex the foot and strengthen the metatarsal arch. Source: Plantar Interossei Muscles”

A mineral compound often used to soothe sore muscles, an enzyme, and various types of hormones are included in our vitamin and biochemical list this week:

Vitamins and other biochemicals that are being influenced this week:

Hemicellulase: is a name used for a group of enzymes that work on breaking down a substance called hemicellulose. Hemicellulose, in turn, is acollective term for various components of cell wall is plants, consisting of such names as xylans, pentosans, mannans, galactans, and glucans.

Our bodies cannot actually digest these biochemical and they go through the digestive tract as so-called roughage. One benefit is that they are useful for cleaning out the digestive tract as roughage tends to do.

Hemicelluloses are present in large proportions in cereals, making up between 2% and 12% of them, and are referred to as fibrils.

Hemicellulases are used, along with other enzymes, as a baking enzyme for cake mixes, to enhance the quality of dough, to optimize the shelf life, volume and consistency. It is also used in dough and baked goods which go through a deep freezing process.

It has other food applications, as well. It is used in the production of fruit juice and other beverages, even alcoholic beverages (in the fermentation process for certain beverages and, in the case of wine, to remove undesired substances, like the aroma from grape skin, and tannins).

Lastly, it is used in animal feed as an additive.

Hemicellulases are made through fermentation of various fungi and bacteria. One of these enzymes utilizes a GMO bacterium culture, known as Bacillus, but this is an exception to the rule as most use non-GMO cultures. Source: “Hemicellulase”

Phosphorus: is one of the chemical elements. It appears under the symbol “P” and the atomic number 15 on the Periodic Table. It can be found in the form of white phosphorus or red phosphorus. However, since it is very reactive (i.e., combines easily with other things in the environment), it never occurs as a free element on Earth. Phosphorus is very important and helps to maintain life on earth, as it is a part of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), DNA, and RNA, as well as phospholipids (which is a part of all cell membranes).

Phosphorescence (which means having a glow after being illuminated). Phosphorus gives off a faint blow after it has been exposed to oxygen

A compound of phosphorus can be found in marine and other fossils. Phosphate is important for live creatures as well in order to foster the growth of sea creatures. You may be most familiar with it as a component in fertilizers. Plants remove phosphorus from the soil as they grow. Fertilizer-containing phosphorus can replenish those supplies. It also can be found in pesticides, detergents, and nerve agents. Source: “Phosphorus”

Aldosterone: is a hormone which plays a crucial role in heart health. This hormone is made in the cortex of our adrenal glands, located above the kidneys.

Aldosterone has an effect upon our body’s capacity to regulate blood pressure. It signals to such organs as the colon and kidney which can increase the quantity of sodium the body sends into the bloodstream and the amount of potassium released in the urine.

Aldosterone also signals the bloodstream to re-absorb water with the sodium in order to increase blood volume, and consequently to the increase and lowering of blood vessels.

It also plays a role in maintaining proper pH and electrolyte levels in our blood.

Aldosterone works together in part with two other hormones: renin and angiotensin.  These 3 comprise the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, a system which is activated when a large drop in blood pressure causes a decrease in blood flow to the kidneys, or a sudden drop of blood volume when we have a cut or serious injury.

Each of these hormones, aside from working together, actually help one another to be produced or released. Renin makes the production of angiotensin possible, which then causes aldosterone to be released. After the body returns to stasis, from being rehydrated and bringing its salt levels back into equilibrium. This causes renin and aldosterone levels to go down to normal.

Under normal health conditions, the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system merely functions to help with the regulation and control of blood pressure levels. Source: “What is Aldosterone?”

Prolactin: is a hormone that is made by the pituitary gland. When a woman becomes pregnant, levels of this hormone are high and helps to make breast milk. The level of this hormone can be as 10 to 20 times the normal amount.

There is a prolactin test available which determines your body’s level of this hormone. A test for prolactin is done if a woman is having abnormal discharge from the nipples, if she is not having normal periods, or if a woman is suffering from infertility.

For men, this test is used in cases when problems with the pituitary gland are suspected, if his testosterone levels are low, or if he is suffering from low libido or erectile dysfunction.

While the test is done for men, at times, and while men’s bodies produce this hormone, too, it is still not quite clear what its role is in the male anatomy.

Several very popular medications appear in our list of medicines this week. You may find that if you are taking any of these medicines, your body’s response to each of these medicines may be different. These effects will pass by week’s end. Source: “Prolactin”

Epsom Salts a/k/a Magnesium sulfate: is a type of inorganic salt chemical compound which contains magnesium, oxygen, and sulfur, and has the formula MgSO4·7H2O). Epsom salt is used mostly in agriculture (to improve the quality of crops), but is often used as a bath salt, a “beauty product,” and as a way to soothe sore muscles. It can even be used to remove splinter.

The World Health Organization considers Epsom salts as one of the most important medications in a basic health system. Source: “Magnesium Sulfate” 

Two pain medications, and a heart medication, are among the medicines in our next list:

Medicines that are active this week:

Aspirin (a/k/a acetylsalicylic acid): is one of the most commonly-known medications and is used to treat fevers, pains, and inflammation. It also has the effect of stopping blood platelets from binding together to cause scabs or patching damaged blood vessel walls.

Many people use Aspirin to allegedly prevent strokes, heart attacks and blood clots or, after a heart attack to supposedly reduce the risk of having another one and to prevent the death of cardiac tissue. It may even prevent colorectal cancer.

But these benefits do not come without a down side, namely “gastrointestinal ulcers, stomach bleeding and ringing in the ears.” It can also cause Reyes Syndrome in children. The background of Aspirin actually comes from the Willow Tree, and specifically its bark. This bark, which contains Salicylic Acid (the active ingredient in Aspirin) has been known to get rid of headaches for at least 2,400 years. The legendary Hippocrates, himself, prescribed it for headaches. Source: “Aspirin”

Codeine a/k/a 3-methylmorphine: is the most commonly used opiate drug, which is used for the treatment of pain (mild to moderate), as a type of cough medicine (although its use as such is not favored in Europe for children under twelve years old), and for diarrhea.

Used as an oral medication, it usually starts working after thirty (30) minutes, takes maximum effect at about two (2) hours after administration, and will usually last for between four (4) and six (6) hours. It is often used along with acetaminophen (Tylenol) or aspirin, reportedly for added benefit.

As with many medicines, codeine is not without its side effects. Common ones include vomiting, constipation, lightheadedness, and itchiness. More serious symptoms may include a lowered effort to breathe and risk of addiction.

Use during breastfeeding can be dangerous and lead to opiate toxicity for the baby. Codeine breaks down in the liver into the drug morphine. Codeine is also naturally occurring in the drug opium, making up about 2 % of its volume. Source: “Codeine”

Hydrochlorathiazide: is a medicine that is often prescribed with Zestril, an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibiting drug, used for hypertension, congestive heart failure and to increase survival after a person has a heart attack. Hydrochlorathiazide is a diuretic medicine. Source: “Zestril”

One poison, which has made its mark in history and in literature, figures into our next section:

Toxins that are active this week:

Arsenic: is another chemical element, found under the symbol “As,” and atomic number, 33, on the periodic table. It is part of many minerals, but most often with sulfur and various metals. It can even be seen as a crystal. It is usually seen as a gray color. Arsenic is used as a part of lead allows such a gun ammunition and car batteries. It is, like the element silicon, used as a semiconductor.

Arsenic is a poison and has become a contaminant of much groundwater around the world. There are some types of bacteria which like to eat arsenic-containing compounds. Some animals need trace amounts of arsenic, too. Among them are chickens, goat, hamster, and rats, and even humans. Poisoning occurs when the body ends up ingesting more than it can handle. Source: “Arsenic” 

A virus which causes respiratory infections is included in our next section:

Pathogens that are active this week

Human Papillomavirus a/k/a HPV: The HPV strain number 49 is active this week.

Respiratory Syncytial Virus a/k/a RSV: is a type of virus which causes respiratory tract infections. It is often contracted, during visits to the hospital, by infants and children. This virus is so widespread that it infects nearly every child by the time they are 2 to 3 years old. RSV recurs annually during the winter months in temperate climates and during the rainy season in temperate climates. 2 to 3% of those children will contract a condition known as bronchiolitis, and will need to be hospitalized. RSV can infect young adults every five to seven years. It can also affect elders. Its symptoms act like a sinus infection or a cold. Source: “Human Respiratory Syncytial Virus”

How Are Universal Frequencies Affecting You this Week (March 26-31, 2018)?

By Robert G. O’Leary & Sharry Edwards | Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth

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 has recently entered the note of C and the color Red. This means that we are in the first part of the color cycle (remember “ROYGBIV) to begin the color cycle, again. Astrologically, we are in the Sign of Aries. 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.

Once again this week, we have a sampling of muscles from every part of the body.  Any one of these muscles could benefit from a little extra TLC this week. Here is our list proceeding from head to toe:

Muscles that are in stress this week:

Rectus Superior: is an eye muscle which functions to look upward without an upward muscle the head.

Dilator of the Nose: a muscle in your nose responsible for holding the sinus passages open. When this muscle is low in tone, you may find yourself more prone to snoring.

Teres Minor: is a shoulder muscle which laterally rotates and adducts your arm at the shoulder (i.e., glenohumeral) joint, and helps to stabilize your shoulder by drawing the humerus toward the glenoid fossa of the scapula. Source: “Teres Minor” 

Deltoid: is a major shoulder muscle that is responsible for giving your shoulder its rounded contour. The world “deltoid” apparently comes from the Greek capital letter delta, as it seems to have the same shape. It has many functions: a. it is the primary muscle responsible for all of the arm and shoulder movements as well as stabilization of the shoulder so that it does not dislocate when you carry heavy loads. Source: “Deltoid Muscle” 

Infraspinatus: is a shoulder muscle that “a. [l]aterally rotates the arm at the shoulder (glenohumeral) joint [, and] b. [h]elps stabilize the shoulder by drawing the humerus toward the glenoid fossa of the scapula. Source: “Infraspinatus” 

L-3 Vertebrae: 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 painsSource: “L-3” 

Extensor Carpi Radialis Longus: is one of the five main muscles that control movements at the wrist. This muscle is quite long, starting on the lateral side of the humerus, and attaching to the base of the second metacarpal bone (metacarpal of the index finger).  As the name suggests, this muscle is an extensor at the wrist joint and travels along the radial side of the arm, so will also abduct (radial abduction) the hand at the wrist.[1] That is, it manipulates the wrist so as to move the hand towards the thumb (i.e., abduction — away from the mid-position of the hand) and away from the palmar side (i.e., extension—increased angle between the palm and the front of the forearm). Source:  “Extensor Carpi Radialis Longus Muscle”  

Piriformis: is one of our hip muscles and, because of its pear-shaped appearance, is called piriformis which is Latin for pear-shaped. It is one of six (6) muscles in the so-called “lateral rotator group” of hip muscle. This one sits in the gluteal area, running form the front of the sacrum and passes down to the Femur bone and connects through its tendon to the Superior Gemellus, Inferior Gemellus, and Obturator Internus muscles.

This muscle works with the other five (5) lateral rotator group muscles (Quad Femoris, Gemellus Inferior, Gemellus Superior, Obturator Externus, and Obturator Internus) to rotate the Femur bone laterally while the hip is extended and abducts (i.e., move inward toward the center line of the body)  the Femur with flexion of the hip. This muscle is also used when lifting one leg and resting your foot on the opposite knee.

This abduction action is very important as it allows the weight of the body to shift to the opposite leg while walking, preventing us from falling. This is just another muscle that we may take for granted till it malfunctions. Source: “Piriformis Muscle”

One of the ways this muscle can malfunction is characterized in the condition known as Piriformis Syndrome. While not a common condition, it is neuromuscular in nature and occurs when this muscle compresses the Sciatic Nerve.

This nerve is a long and thick nerve in our bodies. It passes by or runs through the Piriformis Muscle down the back of the leg and then tinier nerves as it runs to the feet. The condition can be caused when the Piriformis Muscle spasms against the nerve – compressing it.

You may have the above syndrome if you feel tingling numbness or a pain in the butt. Now it is important to separate this kind of “pain in the butt” from the kind involving your boss, friend, or loved one.” Seriously, this kind of pain can become the so-called Sciatica, although most often sciatica is caused by other things.

In any case, be mindful of times that you are sitting or running too long as this can cause a flare up. You also may trigger it when climbing stairs or any time you apply firm pressure directly on this muscle. Repetitive injury or punishment of this muscle with such activities as long-distance running or constant sitting can exacerbate or foster developing this syndrome. While there is no definitive way to diagnose this condition, as yet, doctors may use a physical exam, X-ray or MRI to rule out other causes of the sciatic nerve compression-such as a herniated disc, for example. Source: “Piriformis Syndrome” 

Gemellus Inferior: is one of the above-mentioned “lateral rotator group” of muscles facilitating various movements of the hip.

Gluteus Maximus: is of course your largest sitting muscle and tends to look pretty good in blue jeans. Now for a new vocabulary word. Callipygian means “having shapely buttocks.” The Ancient Roman sculpture (which some think is a copy of an older Greek statue), known as Callipygian Venus (a/k/a Venus Callipyge a/k/a Aphrodite Kallipygos and Ἀφροδίτη Καλλίπυγος), literally means “Venus (or Aphrodite) of the beautiful buttocks.” Source: “Callipygian” and Source: “Venus Callipyge” 

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” 

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” 

Extensor Digiti Minimi: is a forearm muscle on the same side as your ulna bone. It starts at the elbow and runs down to the wrist which runs through its corresponding  tendon down through the wrist and splits as it goes over the dorsal side of your hand and ends at the first part of your little finger.

Its function is to extend the wrist, i.e., it moves the back of your hand toward the back of your forearm. It can also extend or straighten out little finger outward. Source: “Extensor Digiti Minimi Muscle” 

Adductor Hallucis Flexor a/k/a Extensor Hallucis Longus Muscle: is a toe muscle that extends the big toe. Source: “Extensor Hallucis Longus Muscle” 

In our next section, we have one of the most plentiful elements on the planet, an important mineral, and a derivative from the marijuana plant:

Vitamins and other biochemical that are being influenced this week:

Potassium: you know as a mineral and you probably hear about it being in some of your foods or listed on vitamin and mineral bottles. In fact, it is a mineral that is considered “crucial for life,” and particularly required for support of your and my heart, kidney and general organ health.

In theory, we should get enough Potassium from our diet, but it is believed that maybe Americans are deficient in it. If you are deficient, you may run the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, stroke, arthritis, infertility and digestive disorders.

People who are at risk for low Potassium are those who use some kinds of birth control pills or diuretics, athletes, those in very physically active jobs, those with Crohn’s Disease, those with eating disorders, or those who are addicted to alcohol or cigarettes.

Some foods rich in Potassium are avocados, bananas, citrus, green and leafy veggies, potatoes and milk. Boiling and certain other types of cooking may destroy the potassium in some foods.

The Institute of Medicine suggests that individuals should take between 400 mgs./day and 5,100 mgs./day, as the following list suggests and with a full glass of water:

0-6 mos.: 400 mg. /day

7-12 mos.: 700 mg./day

1-3 years: 3,000 mg./day

4-8 years: 3,800 mg./day

9-13 years: 4,500 mg./day

14 years and up: 4,700 mg./day

Pregnant women: 4,700 mg./day

Breastfeeding women: 5,100 mg./day

Hydrogen: is a well-known chemical element, with the symbol of H, as seen on the Periodic Table, where it is the lightest and most widespread of all known elements. It is very reactive with most non-metal elements, it is most often found as part of other substances. It is a part of water (H2O) of course, is found in many organic compounds, and is even found in some stars and so-called “gas giant” planets. It is said to be vital to “powering” stars through a chemical reaction.

Hydrogen is the 3rd most plentiful element on the Earth’s surface, primarily in the form of water and hydrocarbons. Its gaseous form is produced by certain bacteria and algae and is a natural part of methane (including the methane that we emit when we “let one go”)

When hydrogen is burned, it creates water and has been called Hydrogen because that word means “water-former” in Greek.

The way Hydrogen acts on its own and with other substances is why it has been used to develop some of the essential aspects of the theory of quantum mechanics.

In modern times, Hydrogen is used in processing fossil fuels in the process known has “hydrocracking” and in ammonia production, principally for making fertilizer.

Hydrogen may also be present in areas we have not even seen as yet, namely in so-called “dark energy” or “dark matter.” Most of the universe’s Hydrogen may be in a simple atomic form, or in the form of plasma. In the plasma form, Hydrogen’s proton and electron are not bound together (as it is in its molecular state), which allows it to have substantial ability to conduct electricity and ability to emit energy, such as is it does in producing and projecting light from the Sun and other stars.  Source: “Hydrogen” 

Mitochondrial Gene: The mitochondrial genome is vital for certain bodily functions, such as cellular energy metabolism, physiology, and development, and it has to do with preventing premature aging and senility. Mitochondria are thought to have originally been organisms that lived outside of another body, ancestors of modern eubacteria and they still do many of the things that those ancestors are understood to have done. Now they are inside of us and serve the cellular energy and metabolism functions but also have a role in our blood, our lipids, oxidation of fatty acids, biosynthesis of amino acids, the urea cycle, and the citric acid, or Krebs, Cycle. Source: “Mitochondrial Genetics” 

Cannibinol a/k/a CBN: is the biochemical that results after the active ingredient, Tetrahydrocannabinol (i.e., THC) breaks down into when exposed, over time, to heat and oxygen. As opposed to THC, which gives people the high of marijuana, CBN becomes only mildly psychoactive, but is still said to be strong enough to help someone get to sleep. CBN reportedly also may be helpful to slow bacterial growth; relieve pain; reduce nausea and vomiting, seizures, systemic inflammation; inhibit cancer cell growth; stimulate our bodies’ osteocytes to promote bone growth, et al. However, CBN may cause disruption to the functionality of immune cells. Source: “Cannabinoid Profile” 

One very popular medication, and a number of lesser-known medications, are included in our next section.

Medicines that are being affected this week:

Metformin: is an important medicine, used by many individuals, for treating their Type 2 diabetes. You may know it by its trade name of “Glucophage,” although there are other less common names for it as well. This is considered a so-called “first-line medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, most often for those who are struggling with excess weight. It has also proven effective as a polycystic ovary syndrome treatment. Further evidence has even suggested that some of the complications of diabetes, such as the development of cancer or cardiovascular disease.

Metformin may be the most commonly-used oral medicine for diabetes. Metformin helps the body by lowering the production of glucose by our liver, and adding to the level of insulin sensitivity in body tissues. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, and is listed as one of “the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system.”

Metformin began being experimented with, as early as 1922, by Jean Sterne, a French physician. The drug underwent human studies in the 1950s. It was officially introduced as a medicine in France in 1957, and in the US nearly 40 years later, in 1995. Source: “Metformin” 

Other medications listed this week are the following:  Beclomethazone, Centrophenoxine, Ethacrynic, Irbesartan, Mestranol, Propranolol, Telmisartan, and Vigabatrin.

Only one significant pathogen appears in our list for this week:

Pathogens that are active this week:

Human Papilloma Virus: The HPV strains number 17 is the only strain that is active this week.

There are no significant toxins in our list for this week. As always if you have any questions, you can reach us at (740) 698-9119.
