STRESS – The Epidemic of Modern Society





We “take things to heart” not only
figu­ra­tively, but lit­er­ally

Sud­den death, which is the lead­ing cause of death in the world, is very fre­quently as­so­ci­ated with an outpour­ing of stress re­lated hor­mones that cause seri­ous dis­tur­bances in heart rhythm that can be fa­tal, even in young, healthy peo­ple.

Such "fight or flight" re­sponses to stress have been ex­qui­sitely honed over the lengthy course of man's evo­lu­tion as life sav­ing meas­ures. Under se­vere stress, heart rate and blood pres­sure soar, blood sugar rises to fur­nish fuel for en­ergy, blood is shunted away from the gut where it is not im­me­di­ately needed for pur­poses of di­ges­tion to the large mus­cles of the arms and legs, to pro­vide more strength in com­bat, or greater speed in get­ting away from a scene of po­ten­tial peril.

The blood clots more quickly to pre­vent loss from hem­or­rhage, our pu­pils di­late to im­prove the range of vi­sion, and a mul­ti­tude of other re­ac­tions over which we have no con­trol are im­me­di­ately and auto­mati­cally evoked.

All of these would have been use­ful, if not life sav­ing, in help­ing primi­tive man to deal with sud­den threats that de­manded im­me­di­ate fight or flight. How­ever, the na­ture of stress for mod­ern man is not an oc­ca­sional physi­cal con­fron­ta­tion with a saber-toothed tiger or a hos­tile war­rior, but rather a host of emo­tional threats, like get­ting stuck in traf­fic, fights with cus­tom­ers, co-work­ers, or fam­ily, that can occur sev­eral times a day. Unfor­tu­nately, our bod­ies still react with these same, ar­chaic, stereo­typed re­sponses, that are now not only not use­ful, but dam­ag­ing and deadly.

Re­peatedly in­voked it is not hard to see how they could cause heart at­tacks, hy­per­ten­sion, strokes, ul­cers, mus­cle spasms, and other “Dis­eases of Civi­li­za­tion”.


It is im­por­tant to rec­og­nize that stress
is not al­ways nec­es­sar­ily bad.

Win­ning a race or elec­tion can just be as stress­ful as los­ing, or more so.
A pas­sionate kiss and an­tici­pat­ing what might fol­low is stress­ful, but hardly likely to be ac­com­panied by the same psychophysi­ol­ogic re­sponses as hav­ing root canal sur­gery. In­creased stress also in­creases pro­duc­tiv­ity – up to a point, af­ter which things de­te­rio­rate.

It’s equally im­por­tant to em­pha­size that this level dif­fers for each of us. It’s very much like the ten­sion or stress on a vio­lin string. Not enough re­sults in a raspy, grat­ing noise, but too much pro­duces a shrill note that is ir­ri­tat­ing, or breaks the string. How­ever, just the right amount of stress cre­ates me­lodic and har­mo­ni­ous tones. Simi­larly, we all have to find the op­ti­mal amount of stress that al­lows us to make pleas­ing mu­sic in our daily li­ves, rather caus­ing us to snap.

Just as stress is dif­fer­ent for all of us, no stress re­duc­tion strat­egy works for eve­ryone. Jog­ging, medi­ta­tion, yoga, deep breath­ing or pro­gres­sive mus­cu­lar re­laxa­tion ex­er­cises are great for some in­di­vid­uals. How­ever, when ar­bi­trar­ily im­posed on oth­ers, they can be bor­ing and stress­ful.

“As has been con­vinc­ingly dem­on­strated in care­fully con­ducted sci­en­tific stud­ies using Medi­cal Reso­nance Ther­apy Mu­sic, cer­tain types of mu­si­cal com­po­si­tions can re­lieve stress and anxi­ety in pa­tients about to un­dergo sur­gery, in sur­geons while they are op­erat­ing, and to im­prove im­mune sys­tem func­tion, and re­duce pain and post op­era­tive com­pli­ca­tions as well as du­ra­tion of hos­pi­talization.”
Read­ing, aromather­apy, en­gag­ing in hob­bies, vol­un­teer work, may also lower stress lev­els, and you have to find out what works best for you. This is es­pe­cially im­por­tant for pa­tients with coro­nary heart dis­ease. A re­cent re­port in the Ameri­can Jour­nal of Car­di­ol­ogy showed that men suf­fer­ing from se­vere an­gina im­proved sig­nifi­cantly with medi­ta­tion. Nu­mer­ous other stud­ies con­firm that walk­ing, regu­lar ex­er­cise, mu­sic, and other stress re­duc­tion ac­tivi­ties can also re­marka­bly re­duce risk for heart at­tacks and sud­den death.


Stress is an un­avoid­able con­se­quence of life

There are some stresses you can do some­thing about and oth­ers you can’t. The trick is in learn­ing how to dis­tin­guish be­tween the two. The best way to ac­com­plish this is to take time to write down all the things that you find stress­ful in your life. Then sepa­rate them into two lists; those you can’t pos­si­bly hope to avoid or in­flu­ence, and oth­ers that you might be able to con­trol.

Try not to be­come preoc­cu­pied with the first list. If a loved one dies, it’s ob­vi­ously stress­ful, but there is noth­ing you can do about it. Pri­ori­tize the items on the sec­ond list, so that you can use your time and tal­ents more ef­fec­tively, rather than be­ing like Don Qui­xote, tilt­ing at wind­mills.

If one of the items on this list is that what could be a 15 min­ute com­mute to work takes you an hour each way be­cause of traf­fic jams, you could go to your su­pe­rior and ask if you can come in and leave one hour ear­lier. If that’s not pos­si­ble, then in­stead of fuming and honk­ing your horn, util­ize this time prod­uctively to lis­ten to a CD of a book you haven’t had time to read, learn a for­eign lan­guage, or bene­fit from the pow­er­ful stress re­duc­tion ef­fects of the Medi­cal Reso­nance Ther­apy Mu­sic.

Al­though the mecha­nism of ac­tion is not clear, the wide va­ri­ety of re­wards that have been achieved sug­gests an abil­ity to ac­ti­vate the awe­some po­ten­tial for self heal­ing and pur­poseful re­gen­era­tion that re­sides in all of us.

Medi­cal Reso­nance Ther­apy Mu­sic is based on the Py­thago­rean prin­ci­ple that the har­mony laws of the mi­cro­cosm of mu­sic are reso­nant with those that gov­ern the mac­ro­cosm of the uni­verse, and can stimu­late the natu­ral wis­dom of the body to re­store ho­meo­sta­sis.
How­ever, theo­ries don’t have to be cor­rect, only facts do, and the facts are that this unique mo­dal­ity can pro­vide nu­mer­ous physi­cal and emo­tional bene­fits.

Stress is an un­avoid­able con­se­quence of liv­ing, and if you can’t fight and you can’t flee, you have to learn to flow. I encour­age all of you, and es­pe­cially pa­tients with heart dis­ease, to dis­cover how the Medi­cal Reso­nance Ther­apy Mu­sic can help you cope with stress, so that you will be­come more prod­uctive, rather than self de­struc­tive, and enjoy a much im­proved qual­ity of life.
