Under investigation were 10 male Chernobyl patients, who either had lived near the nuclear reactor or had fought the accident and in consequence suffered from severe autonomic neural and cerebrovascular disturbances. The aim of the investigation was to find out in how far Medical Resonance Therapy Music® would effect the plasma hormone levels of beta-endorphin, ACTH and cortisol.
The patients received complex medication and therapy: nootropes, vasodilatators, galvano therapy, adrenoblockers as well as a physiotherapy and for ten days they were treated with MRT-Music® each day for 30-40 minutes.
The hormone levels of beta-endorphin, ACTH and cortisol were measured before the MRT-Music® treatment and 30 minutes after the treatment.
Regarding ACTH and cortisol, no significant changes were registered. Not so with beta endorphin: with each MRT-Music® treatment the output of the hormone got stimulated. After the 10th treatment the level had increased by 60% and reached its normal level.
If we compare these hormone investigations with those of mothers during parturition then it becomes obvious that Medical Resonance Therapy Music® generated a clear change in the opioid-activity in both investigation groups, but dependent on their initial level: was the initial level too low it increased the opioid-activity – was it too high, it reduced the opioid activity. This harmonizing, balancing effect of MRT-Music® on neuroendocrine regulation deserves utmost attention.
