According to author and lecturer Dr. Deepak Chopra, Ayurveda teaches that: “The body is held together by sound, and the presence of disease indicates that some sounds are out of tune… primordial sound is the mysterious link that holds the universe together in a web that is the quantum field.”
Science identifies powerful rejuvenating substance – Nitric Oxide

(NaturalNews) Human beings have always been looking for the perfect regenerative tonic. In my book the The Tao of Rejuvenation I detail the ancient search and identify some of the great elixirs that have been used to restore health and extend life. Even so, the key understanding is that it is the human body itself that produces the great life restoring chemistry. As it turns out, the long sought elixir of the ancients is actually produced by the body when all of it’s systems are purified and boosted.
When we eat right, when we exercise, when we serve others, when our lives are happy and full of love, the body secretes a powerful regenerative chemistry that protects and extends our days. Over the last several years, research scientists under the direction of Dr. Nathan Bryan at the University of Texas have pointed to nitric oxide as the essential regenerative substance produced by the body. As their research continues to progress they are discovering that nitric oxide deficiency seems to be a culprit in all kinds of imbalances, such as bone loss, diabetes and cancer. Perhaps nitric oxide is the long sought, legendary tonic.
Nitric Oxide (NO) is a fundamental chemical messenger manufactured by the body within the circulatory system and it’s production relaxes and expands the blood pathways. This increases blood flow to all the organs and cells, restoring the health and strength of the cardiovascular tissue. By the age of forty, nitric oxide production begins to decline. This significant decline in NO production appears to be universal. Even so, the cardiovascular system never loses its ability to relax and open. It is the absence of NO that accounts for the fact that a person in their fifties and sixties has about half the circulatory capacity they had in their twenties.
If a tree falls in a forest and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound? Assuming there is actually no living being in the forest (which is not likely), the answer is no, it does not make a sound. There need to be three things present for there to be a sound:
- A source like a bird, a speaker, or a falling tree that causes vibrations;
- a medium, like air or water, for the vibration to travel through;
- an ear attached to a brain. A sound is what your brain makes out of vibrations in the medium that are sensed by the ear.
Psychoacoustics is the study of how the brain reacts to, and processes sound. The perception of sound is a very detailed, complex event. Much of how our brain handles sound is inherited, with eons of previous human experience embedded in our genetic makeup. Most of that experience was built on the need to survive. Sound was, especially at night, the primary means of knowing what was going on around you.
