    • 1. and Chanting
    • 2. Cancer and Chanting Body Body (Disease) (Disease)BreathBreath Chanting Chanting
    • 3. How it worksAccording to a research done at the ClevelandUniversity, USA, the rhythmic tones involved in chantingcreate a melodious effect in the body called the Neuro-linguistic effect [NLE]When we know the meaning of the mantra we arereciting, it creates a Psycholinguistic effect [PLE] on thebody.The NLE and the PLE effects are by-products of theproduction and spreading of curative chemicals in thebrain. The research concludes that this is the realreason why chanting provokes curative effects in us.
    • 4. How it works Each tone vibrates the bones, muscles and fluids ofthe chanter. The elongation of the vowel sound isremarkably healing to the brain and the body. Brainwaves begin to balance after three or fourminutes, and the muscle and skin temperatureincreases. The ancients intuitively knew that the balancing ofthe body, heart and mind through the voice is a directpath to healing and higher consciousness.
    • 5. Cancer and ChantingChanting simply means singing [rhythmic speaking]certain sounds or words.Group resonanceFrom a scientific point of view, the true power of coming togetheras a group stems from a collective resonance effect.Just as brain-wave entrainment can occur between twoindividuals, it can also be established between group memberschanting together.The electrical activity of each individual in the group begins toresonate on a common synchronized wavelength and in phase -a choir perfectly in tune. Like a coherent group of electrons thatbegins to vibrate as one giant electron, the group creates aresonance that magnifies the individual effect.
    • 6. Chaos and Coherence Research shows that in states of stress, anxiety and depression or anger, the natural variation in cardiac rhythm becomes weak and chaotic. In states of well being, compassion, gratitude and when attention is centered on the breathing, this variability is greater and becomes coherent. The subject’s breathing of 6 breaths per minute or less, also produces coherence with rhythms of other autonomous physiological functions, triggering self-healing capacity of the body.
    • 7. CoherenceAccording to research, when we repeat mantra or prayer weautomatically adjust our breath to 6 or less breaths per minute.This frequency happens to be the natural rhythm of fluctuationsof other biological functions (heart rate, blood pressure, bloodflow to the brain). The result of this synchronization is that therhythm of each function resonates in coherence with the otherautonomous physiological functions, mutually reinforcing eachother.This coherence produced health benefits: better functioning of immune system, reduction of inflammation, better regulation of blood sugar levels
    • 8. Lack of Coherence Lack of coherence increases with age and is linked to: High blood pressure Cardiac insufficiency Complication from diabetes CancerFortunately, the balance in biological functions responds very well to breathing and concentration
    • 9. Cancer and ChantingAs we create repetitive sound, we create sounds at certainfrequencyIt has been documented that the frequencies of chanted prayerare positively impacting our bodies on cellular and organ levelsCells and organs of the body resonate to frequencies of thechant, thus being organized and harmonized throughout ourbodyAnother (dr.M. Emoto) theory postulates that water takes on theresonance of the energy directed towards it Our bodies are made of approx. 70% of water Chanting mantra or prayer changes molecular structure of the water of the body and brings about the healing process
    • 10. Cancer and Chanting“When you sing, you pray twice”— St. AugustineResearch done by Alfred Tomatis of the French Academy ofScience and Medicine found that chanting sounds have atherapeutic effect on the body. it soothes all our bodily systems it activates the body’s natural healing process it also plays a part in reversing heart disease
    • 11. Benefits of ChantingRelaxes the body and alleviates the stressHelps to manage the mind – the mind becomes silentand all the negative and persistent thoughts arestopped or easily replaced by positive onesRegulates and balances all body systems: Strengthens the immune system (to fight against disease) Reduces inflammation (which causes the disease) Lowers the blood pressure Regulates the level of sugar in bloodIf done in a group, the effects are multiplied by thesynchronicity of the collective brains
