Music and health (part 3)

Thus, the sound “a – a” massages the pharynx, larynx, thyroid gland; the sound “o – o” heals the middle part of the breast; the sound “o – I – o – I” massages the heart; the sound “I – e – I” affects the brain, kidneys, endocrine glands; the sound “a – u – e – I” helps the whole body as a whole. (Each sound is pronounced 3 – 4 times). Very similar effects are produced on the body and individual pieces of music. Especially, experts say, treats the music of Mozart. Profession centenarians call S. V. Sosorgan profession singers. He created the Institute of medicine and music therapy. Dealing with the problems of maintaining the health and self-improvement of people, he says: sing, friends, to health!Longevity, increase in human life expectancy – these are the most difficult tasks of the Russian scientist, astrologer Valery TUEV. He together with his colleagues, having turned a huge number of reference books, Russian and foreign, including the Guinness book of records, made an extensive, interesting, we can say a unique scheme.

According to the life stories of people who have reached a very old age, astrological research, as well as studying the psychological factors that ensure an active, healthy, long life, scientists came to the conclusion that all long-lived people are creative, who sought and managed to realize their abilities. It is very important, V. A. TUEV said, to lead a “meaningful way of life, to be an active co-author of one’s own destiny”. In an interview with me, he told me about the Spanish conductor Pablo Casals, who lived 94 years. He had a beautiful young wife.

Despite his long-term illness (rheumatoid arthritis), he was always full of spirituality, inexhaustible thirst for life and creativity. “Every morning when I Wake up, I look forward to meeting the music,” he said. “Bach is a great romantic to me. His music excites me, brings back a sense of fullness of life.” And as if to confirm this, V. A. TUEV read me an excerpt from his book “Astrology and longevity”, written by him in collaboration with S. Kurapov. It was an episode in the life of Pablo Casals, a sickly, aging man, but completely transformed by the touch of the beautiful, which was for him Music.

Here he was, decrepit, bent, leaning on the hand of his wife, entered the living room, went to the piano. The first chords sounded. And as if a miracle happened! It seemed that there were no sick, swollen fingers that flew like birds over the keys or quickly ran over them, there was no old man – a slender, graceful pianist sat at the piano. He played Bach, Mozart, Brahms. Music was his medicine. “Creative self-realization transforms a person, inspires and even, imagine, makes him a long-liver,” V. TUEV said and gave me his book with the wish of longevity.

Russian writer and publicist Marietta Shaginyan lived a long life (94 years). She said: “People, rejoice in your wealth, if you see, hear in these years, if your feet go to yourself without stumbling, your knees do not tremble, and do not whine at some senile trifles. You’re young! I was young at eighty-five. Both legs and eyes worked well… I was so young that I seemed to myself younger than the previous twenty-five years, because I was seized by a deep, tireless interest in life.”

That’s what creative self-realization means! It improves the tone, mood, and prolongs life. So live in creativity and health, dear readers of “Russian newspaper”! Instead of pills and pills, listen to the music of Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Pancho Vladigerov; do what you love, self-actualize!
