Publisher's Summary

From a leading neurologist, neuroscientist, and practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine, comes a rigorous scientific investigation of the healing power of sound, showing listeners how they can use it to improve their mental and physical wellbeing.

Why does a baby’s cry instantaneously flood a mother's body with a myriad of stress hormones? How can a song on the radio stir up powerful emotions, from joy to anger, regret to desire? Why does sound itself evoke such primal and deeply felt emotions? 

A vibration that travels through air, water, and solids, sound is produced by all matter, and is a fundamental part of every species' survival. But there is a hidden power within sound that has only just begun to be investigated. Sound Medicine takes listeners on a journey through the structure of the mouth, ears, and brain to understand how sound is translated from acoustic vibrations into meaningful neurological impulses. Renowned neurologist and Ayurvedic expert Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary explains how different types of sound impact the human body and brain uniquely, and explores the physiological effects of sound vibration, from altering mood to healing disease.

Blending ancient wisdom with modern science, Dr. Chaudhary traces the history of sound therapy and the use of specific mantras from previously unknown texts - traced back to the Siddhas, a group of enlightened yogis who created a healing tradition that served as the precursor to Ayurvedic medicine - to explain the therapeutic application of sounds for a wide range of conditions. Sound Medicine offers practical, step-by-step lessons for using music and mantras, whether you're a beginner or searching for a more advanced practice, to improve your health in body, mind, and spirit.

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

???? Left me with a few questions...


Questions such as "Where's the rest of the book?" and "Did I miss something?"

But this book helped me to begin what is a helpful practice: chanting using a manthra.

For anyone who has experimented with chanting Aum or Om can usually feel the power in it, however subtle it may be.

But the accompanying PDF... how is that valuable? Where does it fit in? It could be much more useful.

Excellent audio, but NO written lyrics for Mantras

Really like the audio book. However Chapter 10 is full of Mantras, but how to practice them? With no text to read, one must listen and re-listen to the audio to get the right words and pronunciations.

Story time w/ no info

The person reading this doesn’t know how to pronounce quite a few things so it made the whole thing choppy. I only made it to the fifth chapter and gave up. I’m not really into autobiographies and that’s what this was. And I was expecting more of a information book about sound and healing.

Pleasantly Surprised

When I chose this book to listen to I thought it would be about sound and vibration therapy or at least incorporate singing bowls. I was pleasantly surprised how ever to find the main message was about the power of Mantra and Mantra meditation. I met my teacher meditation teacher 11 years ago, and I have fallen in love with the mantras during the decade. This book has refueled my commitment thank you so much!

Beautiful book

A good book for beginners in sound healing and mantra chanting; chalk full of information that can supplement those who are seasoned practitioners of mantra as well.
I hope she writes another book that goes deeper into all that she touches in this book. It was a lovely read/listen.
