Under investigation was the question, in how far Medical Resonance Therapy Music® has an effect on the extent of the illness in patients suffering from neurodermatitis (neurodermatitis constitutionalis atopica).
For this purpose an experimental group of 28 patients was formed, who in addition to the normal treatment listened to Medical Resonance Therapy Music®, as well as a control group with 10 patients who received the conventional treatment "only”. The patients were between 18 and 60 years of age.
The music treatment was given over a period of 14 days, three times a day (morning, noon, evening) for 30 minutes each. All patients stayed at the hospital and were treated according to the individual degree of the disease. The different variables as different sickness degrees, internal and external medication as well as already made experiences with other relaxation techniques were kept constant over the two groups, this also applied for age and sex.
For therapeutic reasons we could not give up the ongoing treatments with internal and external medication during the treatment with Medical Resonance Therapy Music®, therefore we made a protocol of using the medications in regard to a specific or general treatment and kept also these variables constant within both groups. The doctor evaluated the status of the skin and the extent of the illness according to a five step scale before and after the treatment.
The evaluations document that the extent of the illness reduced clearly in both groups: by 41% in the Medical Resonance Therapy Music® group and by 12% in the control group.
These results confirm that Medical Resonance Therapy Music® is a valuable therapeutic tool for neurodermatitis patients to help reduce the extent of the illness.
