Sing This for Better Digestion—No Joke


If you have the blues and a sluggish digestive system, it’s time to sing. According to sound therapist and energy healer Jovita Wallace, sound vibrations go straight to what’s out of balance in our systems and help relieve the discomfort. Here’s healing help from specific vocal sounds…

To help banish the blues, sing the short “a” sound, as in “ahh,” for two to three minutes. It forces oxygen into the blood, which signals the brain to release mood-lifting endorphins.

To boost alertness, make the long “e” sound, as in “emit.” It stimulates the pineal gland, which controls the body’s biological clock.

To speed up digestion, sing the short “e” sound, as in “echo,” which stimulates the thyroid gland. This se­cretes hormones that control the speed at which digestion and other bodily processes occur.

To help regulate blood sugar, make the long “o” sound as in “ocean.” This stimulates the pancreas.

To strengthen immunity, sing the double “o” sound, as in “tool.” This activates the spleen, which regulates the production of infection-fighting white blood cells.

Sing while stuck in traffic, in the shower, in your church choir, while waiting for the delivery guy…whenever or wherever you won’t disturb anyone (because unfortunately we all don’t sound like Pavarotti).
