Sound Baths Can Fight COVID-19
Not too long ago, I had to go to the doctor for my annual wellness visit for women. To my surprise, they added an extra element to the room, a Sound Bath, which I am guessing had the intention of making this experience a little less uncomfortable (and more relaxing). I do not know why I began to laugh at this little surprise. Maybe, in my mind, I could not comprehend how calming sounds would make these types of examinations less awkward. As soon as the nurse came in with a gown for me to change into, obviously not meant for me to walk the red carpet in, I asked her, “So, is this sound supposed to make this intolerable situation easier?” She answered, “Well, it is supposed to help you feel more relaxed.” Then, my curiosity bulb lit up! Are you curious, too?
What Is A Sound Bath?
As you can see, the title says “Sound Baths Can Fight COVID-19,” and I stand by that statement. Stress and poor nutrition are two of the most common reasons why your immune system becomes weakened. I am not a doctor whatsoever, but I am a Rheumatoid Arthritis patient with some experience under my belt that allows me to tell you these facts: Your brain is a powerful source that needs to be taken care of, but it has also been said that your stomach is your second brain, so we can not forget about it. A low immune system will not be able to fight successfully against a virus that your body may encounter. You can manage an immune-boosting diet that follows a regimen given to you by a professional nutritionist. But how can we manage stress? If you are not familiar with what a Sound Bath is, it is a sound experience—recorded music with certain tones, rhythms, and sounds—that triggers your brain to relax. Scientific research has shown Sound Baths to actually be effective for calming the mind and, therefore, the body.
Why Should I Choose This Treatment?
The brain is a masterpiece for sure, meant to organize and protect us. Whenever we feel that we are in danger, the back of our brain begins to react, under stimulation from the endocrine system, with the well-known flight or fight response. This is a normal reaction, triggered by acute and/or chronic stress and trauma. When this instinct gets out of control, it can become a problem, slowly leeching the energy our bodies need for restoration and healing. Self-regulation and self-care are musts in order to guide our brains back to safe mode and keep them there, as much as possible.
Let me ask you:
- Do you feel like your body is giving up on you?
- Is it hard for you to sleep?
- Are you reacting in anger and frustration more than usual?
- When you eat, do you feel that the food is not sitting well in your stomach?
- Do you feel depressed or sad?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it is time to take action and take care of yourself. Here at Elite, we are ready to help you move forward in this process of healing (and staying healthy). You are not alone!
