Music therapy for sleep disorders based on the Biorhythm theory of Ayurveda

Riyana Sreedharan, Karuna Nagarajan, Lakshmi Surendran.

Abstract
Music can influence physical, mental, behavioral, and emotional states. Music has proven to block internal or external stimuli from disrupting one’s sleep cycle. There is, however, no thorough review of the appropriate type and mechanism of music for sleep disorders. Here, we have developed a unique model of music that generates a sleep-friendly state, combining with Yogic practices like Bhramari and Yoga Nidra that induce relaxation healing sleep disorders. Music therapy is one of the Ayurveda-recommended supplemental treatment modalities that work as Mind-Body Medicine.
Ayurveda, the ancient science focuses on preventing and treating one's disease conditions, balancing the biological factors (Doshas) and psychological components (Gunas). Indian Ragas help to change one's mental patterns by evoking positives and averting negatives. We have listed the Ragas based on Biorhythm theory depicting aesthetic mood as a part of music therapy which helps to balance Doshas causing sleep disorders, insomnia, and hypersomnia.

Key words: Insomnia; Hypersomnia; Quality of Life; Ragas; Anidra; Biorhythm theory, Music therapy
