Can Specific Musical Tones Heal Your DNA?

TN asks: "Is it alright to use solfeggio tones to relax and for healing, if not, why not?"

You can use them to relax, but there is no evidence that solfeggio tones are capable of physical healing.

For those of you who never heard of solfeggio tones, these are believed by New Agers to have been the original sound frequencies used in ancient Gregorian chants that were either lost or suppressed by the Church. These chants, with their special tones, were believed to impart tremendous spiritual blessings when sung in harmony during the Mass.

According to the history, King David supposedly "received" six Solfeggio tones which he then created with strings on his lyre. These tones were used with the psalms. "The mathematics of the tones matches the mathematics of the psalms (gematria)," this author states. Solomon then used the tones and the gematria in the creation of the Song of Songs, but eventually lost the tones.

They were supposedly found again during the creation of the Gregorian chants. These tones were allegedly based on the discoveries of Pythagoras and his "harmony of the spheres" (whatever that means). But these were also later lost.

Now we come to the 1990's when Dr. Joey Puleo was given the secret of the gematria in a vision along with the actual frequencies. In the vision, Jeshua appeared along with an angel that Dr. Puleo doesn't name. Not long after this, a man named Joseph Crane was told in an appearance of the Archangel Michael that two solfeggio scales existed - one sacred and one profane. Crane claims to have discovered six of the frequencies of the sacred solfeggio, now known as the "secret solfeggio", and added a seventh - all of which were to be used in healing. Crane claims that the Archangels Michael and Gabriel both verified the existence of the tones, and revealed other tones such as the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine frequencies.

In his book, Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse, Dr. Leonard Horowitz, who is affilliated with numerous New Age alternative healing methods, documents Dr. Puleo's rediscovery of the tones.

The six solfeggio frequencies are:

UT – 396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear RE – 417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change MI – 528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair) FA – 639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships SOL – 741 Hz – Awakening Intuition LA – 852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

As one author so fancifully detailed, " . . .(T)he third note, frequency 528, relates to the note MI on the scale and derives from the phrase 'MI-ra gestorum' in Latin meaning 'miracle.' Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA – the genetic blueprint upon which life is based!"

Unfortunately, there's no such thing as repairing DNA - or any other bodily affliction - with sound frequencies.

As this article on Health Feedback explains, there is no evidence to support any of these claims about the healing powers of frequencies. These claims are "part of a wider body of pseudoscience that argues that certain frequencies have wide-ranging powers to heal and manipulate the body."

The site found more than five million claims circulating online about the "vague, mystical healing powers" associated with Solfeggio tones. "These are often combined with conspiracy theories alleging that these frequencies were suppressed by authorities or appealing to the idea of rediscovering supposed ancient wisdom based on no evidence."

Science has long known about the benefits of music on a person's overall health, but there is simply no evidence to support the notion that particular notes played at specific frequencies has the power to repair DNA.
