Multiple Sclerosis and Sound Therapy
How Sound Therapy enhances the neural system to address many of the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis and M. E. Syndrome
Multiple Sclerosis is a slowly progressive “chronic” disease of the central nervous system where myelin, the insulation on nerve fibers, is lost. It affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other. Communication between nerve cells occurs by the sending of electrical signals, called action potentials, along fibers called axons, which are wrapped in an insulating substance called myelin.
Myelin is the fatty layer—known as the myelin sheath—which helps the neurons carry electrical signals along the nerve fibres. It is the main component of the white matter of the brain and spinal cord. In MS, the body’s own immune system attacks and damages the myelin. When myelin is lost, this affects the ability of the axons to communicate effectively. The name multiple sclerosis refers to scars (scleroses— which are better known as plaques or lesions) in the myelin.

MS is thought to be an autoimmune dysfunction in which the body turns on itself for some unknown reason.
Demyelination (damage to the myelin sheath) contributes to loss of muscular and nervous system function. Areas of the brain that are heavily myelinated are more effective in conducting high frequency signals. Therefore demyelination contributes to a loss of hearing acuity and balance problems.
Some degree of relief and prevention or slowing of further degradation may be achieved through Sound Therapy. Sound Therapy stimulates many parts of the nervous system apart from the hearing nerves. Research findings suggest that auditory deprivation from birth results in less myelination and/or fewer fibers projecting to and from auditory cortices.
Therefore increased auditory stimulation may be a factor in helping to maintain myelination of certain pathways.
“In January 1987 I had encephalitis and myelitis endemic to the Murray Valley. At one stage the resulting symptoms were called the M.E. syndrome: (a condition with many similar symptoms to MS) chronic ...”

Sound Therapy can help with many of the symptoms associated with MS such as:
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) can affect your ability to move around. You may be experiencing tightness, pain, and weakness, especially in the muscles and joints.
- Balance problems
- Lack of coordination
- Hearing loss due to muscle spasm or poor neural responsiveness
