Reinforcement of Positive Values in Children Suffering from Radiation Sickness
Under investigation were 20 children from the area around the town of Gomel, which is con­tami­nated by radioactivity due to the nuclear accident of Chernobyl.

They stayed in hospital for 14 days and re­ceived every day a 30 minute treatment with Medical Resonance Therapy Music®. The psy­cho­so­matic status was evaluated by the help of the Spielberger-Khanin scale.

Prior to the treatment 59,1% of the children displayed great personal unrest, they felt great strain and grave worries about the pos­si­bil­ity of an unsuccessful outcome of the treat­ment of their illnesses. Likely com­pli­ca­tions and side effects arising from various forms of treatment produced nervous re­ac­tions in them.


The children experienced a clear reduction or dispersion of their fears and worries and a sig­nifi­cant fall in the level of personal unrest. In 40% of them the effects went far beyond this and generated
  1. a growing feeling of joy
  2. growing satisfaction and inner well-being
  3. an increase of their creative powers through which the course of the so­matic illness also became better.
