I love learning languages and have taken on the tasks of learning Japanese and Russian simultaneously. Yes, it sounds odd and goes against conventional wisdom but after speaking with a number of polyglots (individuals who speak multiple languages; poly means “many” and glot means “tongue.”).
My schedule is full to say the least. In addition to running our Dezine Management (Hgh Plus business [www.hghplus.net]), I continually update our sites and 3 blogs, process the Doctor’s Visit on CD, Blood Test results analysis, Trace Mineral Analysis, lecture and teach Natural Medicine subjects, teach martial arts, train in Arnis, take a monthly trip to W. Palm Beach to train in Systema, train for marathons and a 50 mile Ultra marathon and an assortment of other ventures and tasks. Needless to say, I enjoy being busy and productive. Learning is growing.
One of the challenges is time; that is, how can I maximize my time to get the best results. In the process of researching this, I came across the notion of using music to improve learning. Back in the early 1980’s, I had first read about 2 women who went to what was then called the Iron Curtain countries and learned about Sophrology and Suggestology and other advanced learning methods.
Somewhere back in the gray matter, I recalled this material and (re-) researched this and began to apply it. The results have been exceptional. Learning is much easier and the entire process has been a joy.
Then came the “side effect.” Toward the back of an obscure article about the aforementioned learning topics, there was a paragraph about the effects of specific music on weight loss. Would listening to 5000 hz added to slow Baroque at dinner help us humans absorb nutrients better from our food?
The answer was a resounding YES. When restaurant patrons ate to slow classical music, they munched more slowly, digested better and did not gain weight. Some even lost weight despite not changing their diet or excise program. When these people ate to rock, they ate rapidly, had digestive issues and gained weight.
There were numerous other health benefits associated with classical music, as well as the aforementioned improvement in memory.
There is something very healthy and medicinal associated with music that is 5000 hz and above.
. . . Stay tuned for updates on this subject.
