and his music creations and musicological works

“Due to your support, for which I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again, it was possible for us in 1996 to include Medical Resonance Therapy Music® in our clinic’s rehabilitative concept for treatment. Now we are able to present the first interim appraisal of our experiences.
Initially, we used the musical preparations complementary for the known indications, and were able to convince ourselves of the positive effects with stress-induced psychosomatic disorders of various manifestations, with arterial hypertony, and regulatory disorders with metabolic causes (among other things diabetes mellitus.
Compared to other musical applications, Peter Huebner’s harmonically structured music in particular had relaxing, sedating, slightly anti-depressive, and mentally balancing effects, also reducing sensitivity to pain. Insomnia, exogenously induced blood pressure fluctuations, and diabetic metabolic fluctuations improved.
Encouraged by this, we also used this therapy procedure for the most frequent functional gastric disorders, colon irritabile (irritable bowel syndrome, which, as is well known, frequently raises therapeutic problems. Central and peripheral nervous malfunctions, para or endicrine mediator and transmission alterations, and possibly intestinal receptive anomalies are the basis of this etologically not absolutely clarified clinical picture. These, among other things, lead to a reduced intestinal stretching pain threshold.
In addition to the typical gastro-intestinal complaints (tendency towards obstipation or diarrhoea, changeable stomachaches, flatulence, and irregular food intolerance, accompanying vegetative symptoms such as insomnia, hyperhydrosis, vaso-motor headaches, dyscardia, dysuria, and muscular tension also occur as further constitutional disorders. These briefly touched on facts seemed to justify using Medical Resonance Therapy Music® for irritable bowel syndrome.
The previous experience is positive. For approx. 70-80% of those treated, there was a marked constitutional improvement, caused by a decline in stomach pains, feeling of fullness, flatulence, as well as accompanying vegetative symptoms after 2-3 weeks’ of therapy.
With the diarrhoea form of irritable bowel syndrome, a reduction of the frequency of bowel movement was registered. Frequently, associated larval depressions also showed tendencies towards improve- ment. Even if this assessment is only based on unchecked course observations, we are convinced, as a result of our experience, that Medical Resonance Therapy Music® can be recommended as a complementary method of treatment for patients with irritable bowel syndrome. A monitored study would surely be sensible.
I hope that, with this short report, I am able to prompt a further treatment indication for Medical Resonance Therapy Music®.”
