Would you believe that the purring and meowing of a cat can help strengthen and even heal our bones? Astounding but true.
An article from the Fauna Communications Research Institute on www.animalvoice.com, titled, Cat Purr Analysis, stated Dr. Clinton Rubin, Director of the Center for Biotechnology, and his associates discovered that exposure to frequencies between 20-50 Hz (20 to 50 waves every second) creates the robust striations of increased bone density. The article also specified, “There is documentation that low frequencies, at low decibel (dB) are helpful with regard to pain relief, and the healing of tendons and muscles,” and concluded, “Vibrations between 20-140 Hz are therapeutic for bone growth/fracture healing, pain relief/swelling reduction, wound healing, muscle growth and repair/tendon repair, mobility of joints and the relief of dyspnea.”
In another article about the amazing healing power of a cat’s purr and meow, Vijaya Khisty Bodach, states, “Dr. Rubin found that gentle vibration at low frequencies (within the same range as those of a purring cat) not only help to maintain healthy bones, they even reverse bone loss. This is good news. Dr. Rubin and other scientists think that an exercise program that includes a way to vibrate humans could be used to promote strong bones in people unable to exercise. Gentle vibration of children that use wheelchairs for just ten minutes a day can help to keep their bones healthy and prevent fractures.”
There is an old Veterinarian School saying “If you put a cat and a bunch of broken bones in the same room, the bones will heal.” Some cats seem to know where our bodies need to heal and find that place and lie on it. Studies have also shown that seniors with cats have lower blood pressure and live longer than those without. Beyond being a beloved and cuddly pet, it seems that those of us who have cats also have a doctor in the house.
