Cultures the world over use sound to attune to, invoke, and transform consciousness. Sound is a powerful tool, because it is vibrational in nature, and we are vibrational beings. Indeed the most modern science shows us that all life is vibrational in nature. This is in line with age old mystical thought of most cultures, which often alludes to the vibrational nature of Creation. The Hindus have a saying, "Nada Brahma", which means, all is sound, or all of creation is sound. They suggest that the primordial sound of manifest creation is the sound of "Aum", or Om, and that if we were to attune to the creative spirit, we would hear this sound. The Judeo-Christian culture might say, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1)," thus also tieing together the nature and power of sound with Creation...

Early asthma onset in children has been shown to have negative influences on behavioral adjustment in part related to the asthma's severity. The more severe the illness, the greater the adverse effects. Children who have an earlier onset of asthma (less than 3 years of age) show significantly more behavior problems at age 4 than children who developed asthma later (Mrazek DA et al). When compared to asthma free children of comparable ages, incidences of depression, wakefulness and fearfulness are greater.
