Science has proven that the cat’s purr has many healing frequencies. Cats purr at frequencies ranging from 25- 150 hz. Recent research indicates that frequencies which lie between 25-150 hz have been instrumental in healing muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments, and helpful in relieving pain. In fact, researchers found that application of vibrational frequencies in this range helped to relieve pain in over 80 % of the participants with both acute and chronic pain. Dr. Clinton Rubin researched and discovered that frequencies between 25 — 50 hz can increase bone density by as much as 20 %.
So this explains why people who have cats have lower blood pressure, and less heart attacks, and heal quicker. Indeed, I’ve seen a pet cat refuse to leave the side of this friend who had liver cancer. The cat insisted on sitting right near or on top of his liver and kept purring on it. That guy is still alive and functional today. Not only that, it explains why cats don’t just purr when they are happy. They also purr when they are injured and/or close to death. The vibrating frequencies induce a blissful meditative state, release endorphins, and a variety of healing chemicals and vibes.
