Happy New Year to all. I’m a baak, like the mayonnaise in the back of my fridge. I needed a little break. please do not worry. But I’m happy to get back in the saddle and talk about the beauty of music and sound and how beneficial it can be for us. .
The older you get, the more you hum. Some people hum in the car while driving. Some people hum in the shower (if they’re not singing). Then there are people who hum indifferently while walking in public places, grocery stores, clinics, and bike paths.

Why do we do this? And is there any benefit to this strange behavior?
It turns out that our brains are programmed to absorb all sounds, but it seems to prioritize the high frequency sounds common in humming. is to
So high notes excite energy. But that’s not all. If you want to get into the science of it, it stimulates the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve wanders within the body cavity (vagus = vagabond) and carries the nerve signals we send into the body cavity.
Skip the science part and go to the basics. Humming is a bit like chicken soup, according to research done on humming. For us older people, it is important to note that balance improves. It improves mental focus, creativity and comprehension for everyone. And perhaps the benefit for humming addicts is that it calms and relaxes.
Other benefits include boosting immunity and balancing blood pressure, possibly due to its sedative effects.
I never thought I would need lessons to learn how to hum properly. But there is a right way and a wrong way. Humming should be done with your nose, not your mouth. This nasal hum stimulates the inner ear and then the nervous system.
Hum softly and softly. No one else has to listen. Try humming for 20 minutes a day and see if you get the results the researchers found.
He said that humming is chicken soup of sounds. But there are other sounds that promise benefits as well.
French researcher Fabien Maman uses sound to blast cancer cells into oblivion. Apparently, cancer cells are quite hard. Normal cells have very flexible cell walls. When certain sound waves hit normal cells, the cells bend and withstand the attack. However, cancer cells are so hard that they shatter.
It doesn’t yet have clinical applications for fighting cancer, but we don’t know what the future holds.
Another medical application of sound in certain circumstances today is the use of sound waves to dissolve kidney stones.
Sound is powerful. We have used it for many good purposes. One of the great uses of humming that I know of is being able to “sing along” when you’ve forgotten a word. occurs.
