I must share my recent accident and subsequent healing from my 23-year-old calico cat's purring. My accident was sitting on a motorcycle to take a photo. The kickstand gave way, and the first thing that hit the street full force was my right elbow, which fractured in eight places. The cycle then pinned my foot resulting in two fractures. I now have an 8-inch plate with five screws permanently inside. My Katie cat sleeps in the crook of my right arm every night, even with the cast on. I have been back to the doctor, and he was amazed about how quickly I was healing. Then I read an article titled, "The Amazing Healing Power of Sound." I brought the article to my doctor and asked if he believed in this, and he said, "Absolutely." I also have osteoporosis, so this swift healing was a blessing. It has been 15 weeks since my surgery, and I am at 99 percent. The biggest thrill was not experiencing any pain throughout this ordeal (believe it or not). After with icing for 24 hours a day for two weeks, I had absolutely no pain. I attribute this to Katie: Cats can heal broken bones.Scientists think they now know the secret behind a cat's nine lives: "Their purrs are the same frequency already being used by orthopedists to strengthen bones and the sound can even help speed healing of fractures," says Elizabeth von Muggenthaler, a bioacoustician at the Fauna Communication Research Institute. Experiments are already under way to see how this sound can benefit humans, preventing osteoporosis and fractures.

Thanks for sharing your healing experience. One of the reasons why there is so little medical research conducted in the field of healing energies (light, sound or electromagnetism) is due to government interference at the behest of the big drug companies, coupled with a lack of funding. Fortunately, this is beginning to change as healers and patients alike are finding safer alternatives to various pharmaceutical products. Some of those used to halt osteoporosis, however, have had horrendous side effects, so you can be doubly grateful to Katie.
