Reduction of the Stress Hormone Cortisol after Gynecological Surgery











Under investigation were 28 women who re­ceived a fibromyom surgery on the uterus. Coming into the hospital the level of cortisol varied between 840 and 1400 nmol / l (on av­er­age 995), thus being very high as can be seen in the chart.


Medical Resonance Therapy Music® Group

14 women were treated with Medical Reso­nance Therapy Music® 2-3 times before sur­gery and for twelve days after surgery, 1-2 times per day, each time for 30-60 minutes in addition to a conventional treatment with an­ti­bi­ot­ics, vitamin preparations, anodynes and a disintoxication therapy as well as a physio­ther­apy.
In difference to the control group these women did not receive sedative drugs before and after surgery.


Before surgery

By treating the women before operation with Medical Resonance Therapy Music® cortisol level sank by 39% – more than four times as much as in the medication group.


After surgery

At the end of the postoperative treatment, which means at the 10th-12th day, the cortisol content in blood was reduced by factor 2,4 (60%), in the control group this factor was 1,7 (41%) compared to the initial level.
Control Group


In this group 14 women received the con­ven­tional treatment only, not listening to Medical Resonance Therapy Music®. Before surgery they received sedative drugs and after sur­gery they received the conventional treat­ment. In difference to the experimental group the women here were treated also with seda­tive drugs after surgery in order to treat their sleep disorders.




Before surgery

The treatment with the conventional sedative drugs lowered the cortisol level too, but only by 9,2%.



After surgery

At the end of the postoperative treatment, which means at the 10th-12th day, the cortisol content in blood was reduced by factor 1,7 (41%) compared to the initial level.
