How Music Like Wholetones Can Change the Brain and the Body

Lately I’ve been digging into the research on vibrational frequencies and how they affect our daily lives. I was skeptical at first but I’m starting to realize it’s not a fringe New Age idea but something real and measurable based on science.

Today’s guest Michael Tyrrell is the founder and president (and musician!) behind a company called Wholetones. His whole approach (no pun intended) is all about healing through music.

Healing Through Wholetones

A musician since a young age, Michael Tyrrell kept asking one question: what was wrong with music? Through 20 years of research and a whole lot of prayer, he found the answer: the frequency. He is now convinced of the strong connection between sound frequencies and healing.

Testimonials from all over the world tell Michael how his music doing amazing things, and he’s even made the Top 10 billboard music charts. (Even his composition “Wholetones for Dogs”… most artists never get to say that!)

We’ve been listening to a lot of Wholetones music around the house lately and I personally am loving them. There are 7 CDs in the main set and each one has a focus. There’s music to help motivate, soothe, sleep, or even pray.

Whether it’s to help with PTSD, depression, anxiety, brain healing, hearing loss, trauma recovery, or just to feel more calm, Wholetones may be the key you’ve been looking for to change your health.

In This Episode You’ll Learn

  • what makes music beautiful (and a hidden reason we’re drawn to it)
  • the frequency of most music we listen to, and why it matters to more than just our ears
  • how a tiny adjustment in frequency changes music
  • uses for music you probably never thought of… like cleaning up an oil spill!
  • how to use Wholetones music to solve everyday problems like procrastination, sibling rivalry, insomnia, and more
  • why to tune your musical instruments to 444 instead of 440
  • testimonials from people using Wholetones
  • a different way to look at the biblical story of creation
  • and more!

Many Thanks to Today’s Podcast Sponsors

This podcast is brought to you by Air Doctor. Did you know that the air inside our homes can be up to 500 times as dirty as the air outside? It can be filled with harmful VOC’s, allergens, bacteria and more. I’ve been looking for an air filter that filters out all of these substances and is quiet and that doesn’t break the bank, for a long time. And the Air Doctor filter meets all my criteria. It removes almost 100% of particles from the air, including VOCs, those are things released from candles, paint, building materials, carpeting, cleaning products, hairspray, air fresheners are more. One of my favorite things about it is what they call auto mode where the fan speed basically adjusts to the appropriate level based on the current air condition in the home. I know air filters can be pricey which is why I’ve teamed up with Air Doctor to get a massive discount for listeners. You can get 50% off right now by going to wellnessmama.com/go/air-doctor to get the discount.

  1. Super interesting podcast!
    Here’s a question for Michael: I’m the substitute pianist at my church, and we have a digital piano. Is it possible to calibrate it to A444? This might help improve our worship service! Thank you.

  2. When I fist got this podcast I instinctively knew there was something to it. I actually downloaded the music this afternoon even before finally listening to the actual podcast. It’s interesting because I believe I do feel the music on a cellular level. I also have chronic pan which I have had for decades including osteo arthritis and as I sit here I am feeling less pain. Thank you!

  3. Hello! I am 9 months pregnant, due on June 4th with my first, and am going after a totally natural birth. If I buy these 7 songs is there one you suggest focusing on or avoiding, especially while I’m in labor?
    Thanks for your thoughts!

    • I bet you’ll know when you’re in labor… if it’s notnworking for you you will quickly tell ppl to turn it off. (From a momma with two medically unassisted births under her belt)

  4. So which ones do you use for sleep Katie? My youngest has a hard time relaxing and getting to sleep and then staying asleep.

  5. Also – is there only one song per cd? Why are there 7 cds? I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around this collection.

  6. Does it benefit If I listen to the Wholetones or any other frequencies at a low volume as I’m reading or doing housework etc.? Or do I need to have it turned up?
