Solfeggio Frequencies and DNA

Source: have all had the experience of listening to a piece of music that really stirs our hearts and minds. The music literally brings tears to our eyes and joy to our hearts. There is a reason for this that goes back through time to an earlier musical scale now referred to as the “Solfeggio Frequencies“. This is a six note scale that bears some resemblance to our modern seven note musical scale. When related to music, ‘Solfeggio’ is referred to as the “ability to sight read music and sing the notes accurately (pitch wise) without the use of a musical instrument’.

The solfeggio frequencies are reputed to be the original frequencies used by the Gregorian Monks when they chanted. The chant, based on the six notes, penetrates deep into the conscious and subconscious mind, drawing forth emotional reactions which we are sometimes unable to completely control. Dr. Candice Pert, PhD, reinforces this observation stating, “Energy and vibration go all the way to the molecular level. We have 70 different receptors on the molecules and when vibration and frequency reaches that far they begin to vibrate”. These original frequencies appear to have been ‘lost’ over the centuries with the introduction of various new tuning methods.

I use the term ‘lost’ in inverted comma’s because nothing is ever really lost. It is merely converted or covered over with a layer of obfuscation. In his article on the solfeggio frequencies, David Hulse DD, states:

Professor Willi Apel, wrote “The orgin of what is now called Solfeggio…arose from a Medieval hymn to John the Baptist which has this peculiarity that the first six lines of the music commenced respectively on the first six successive notes of the scale, and thus the first syllable of each line was sung to a note one degree higher that the first syllable of the line that preceded it. By degrees these syllables became associated and identified with their respective notes and as each syllable ended in a vowel, they were found to be peculiarly adapted for vocal use. Hence “Ut” was artificially replaced by “Do.” Guido of Arezzo was the first to adopt them in the 11th century, and Le Marie, a French musician of the 17th century added “Si” for the seventh note of the scale, in order to complete the series.”

The solfeggio scale was ‘rediscovered’ by Dr Joseph Barber who claimed to have been guided intuitively to find a pattern of six repeating codes in the Book of Numbers. He found in Chapter 7, verses 12 through 83, number references that, when deciphered using a numerological technique, could be reduced to a single digit. This revealed a series of six electromagnetic sound frequencies which he determined to be the six missing tones of the ancient Solfeggio scale.

The notes in the scale are:

  • “UT” – which cycles at 396 Hz
  • “RE” – which cycles at 417 Hz
  • “MI” – which cycles at 528 Hz
  • “FA” – which cycles at 639 Hz
  • “SOL” – which cycles at 741 Hz
  • “LA” – which cycles at 852 Hz

Here are some samples of ‘solfeggio tones‘ from youtube:

Dr. Leonard Horowitz spent three years researching these six tones. He and Joseph Puleo authored a book titled, “Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse”. In the book, Horowitz states that the solfeggio frequencies are: “An extremely unique series of new Bible codes, reportedly related to ancient music and the physics of creation, have been discovered by a physician from Clark Fork, Idaho. The new revelation, found in the Book of Numbers, includes a mathematical electromagnetic frequency code for “miracles” that experts say has already been shown to help repair damaged DNA – the genetic blueprint of life.”

Even among ancient cultures, the power of sound waves was believed to have an effect on the human body. Shaman usded chanting and drumming to focus their spiritual, mental and physical energies. In short, they created and used sacred music to heal. Modern man, until recently, had forgotten about the power of sound, that is until Drs Barber, Horowitz and Puleo ‘rediscovered’ it. Along with this discovery, additional research conducted by Dr Horowitz claims to have uncovered three more solfeggio frequencies. My research has not discovered any vocal tones for these three frequencies, however, they are:

  • 174 hz
  • 285 hz
  • 963 hz

Samples of the three ‘new’ frequencies:

With the addition of these three frequencies, the solfeggio scale now has nine tones. These can be represented as shown in the following diagram:


For those of you with a mathematical mind, you will already see the interrelationships between these numbers. Intriguing, don’t you think? Another thought provoking idea currently being given voice is the notion that matter does not really exist. Albert Einstein once stated: “Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.

In an earlier article, DNA Activation, I mentioned research being undertaken in Russia. To recap one main point:

Russian scientists have discovered that: “Living chromosomes function just like a holographic computer using endogenous DNA laser radiation.”

So, matter does not exist and DNA functions like a laser. Modern physics has also postulated that DNA may function as a type of holographic projector which translates low vibrational state energy into ‘physical patterns’. These physical forms behave in a similar way to acoustic wave forms and as such can be used as a means for decoding genetic information through sound. David Hulse is credited with recognizing sound resonance as a basic principle of good health. He studied how certain sounds and frequencies could activate DNA and discovered that biochemists use the 528Hz frequency of the solfeggio scale to repair DNA.

Next time you are listenting to a particularly stirring piece of music, you will have to wonder, “Just what is this doing to my insides?”


I checked the 528 Hz video. I used the NCH Tone Generator to compare the tone frequencies in the video to the pure 528 Hz tone. I can now say that the 528 Hz tone is there as a subtle but effective background tone. I can appreciate this as to listen to the pure tone for 5 minutes as in this video:

would drive you a little batty. I will leave the original video in place and for the purists among you, enjoy the pure tone.



  1. Hi Sound warriors!
    Great to discover this site Timberwolf- and read the comments too.Thank you for all the knowledge and guidance….

    I wanted to share my experience …
    I’ve had M.E for 25 years and in a wheel chair,partly due also to my capacity to”have” accidents.
    I came across the SOLFEGGIO Frequencies on Youtube a year and a half ago and listened to them regularly,on a intuitive basis.I then suffered a deeply traumatic, total immune system breakdown!!! hell, but I’d also started to stand up to people, so “old” me was going through quite a shock!
    I now firmly believe that I really had to go through this for my greater healing…
    It took me a long time to start listening again,but having had a persistent
    ear infection for some months I researched and started listening to the DNA repair and Love Frequency tones. I also found one for earache. Within two days , am glad to note intermittent return of hearing to my left ear…
    If anyone has any other advice, would be really grateful.
    Debbi,I’d love to be in touch with you….? your work sounds great!
    I’m a musician and songwriter two,of Indian origin and intend to explore the Tones within the Indian Raga system too ….
    In appreciation and love,

    • Hi Pammy

      Thank you for sharing your story here at TimberwolfHQ. I am happy for any of my readers to leave details on who they are and what they do, remembering that you do so at your own decision. I hope that you have managed to link up with Debbie and that you are both exploring the range of frequencies together creating wonderful music. I for one would love to hear your compositions.



  2. I believe Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein eventually came to understood the power of resonance; both the constructive and destructive powers. Sound can cure disease and sound can inflict pain.

    To no ones surprise the military has devised weapons to inflict the pain; see

    If yin and yang truly coexist then sound is a means of healing as well.

    Spoken back in the 1930′s was this quote. “Sound is the medicine of the future.” Edgar Cayce.

    Revolutionary ideas are always met with initial and many times total resistance by skeptics (a.k.a. usually scientists); however that does not mean the ideas are not valid and the ideas are not sound; no pun intended.

    At points in history many said there was no scientific proof the earth was round or rotated around the sun. But yet there was scientific proof, it just hadn’t been uncovered yet.

  3. Hello Timberwolf,
    Is this wonderful music on a CD? how much? Would definitely like a copy.
    Thanks Rosemarie

  4. Hi again…

    BTW I have made a CD in a sound studio, using the tuning forks, chime pipes and bars of the Solfeggio 9, cosmic frequencies, planetary tones, Egyptian vibrations (which were ‘downloaded’ to me to have made into tuning forks last year – since then have worked in Egypt with them.. WOW), some flute and voice. I have called it Solfeggio Dream.

    The first 6 tracks are all the sacred sounds and most people get to about track 2 or 3 and are in alpha to theta state really quickly. Good for insomnia too. I love it because it is pure waves of sounds and not generated by a machine. 5 of us who have benefited hugely from the sounds, playing with love. I had ME, another has terminal cancer (diagnosed 2 and half years ago), someone else fibromyalgia free, someone off some medication for BP and diabetes normal and all have joy in sharing.

    With love
    Debbi :-)

  5. Hi to fellow sound people

    I have been working with the Solfeggio set of 9 tuning forks for over 18 months now. I have shared them, and especially the 528 hz tuning fork, doing workshops, courses, fayres and festivals with many many people now. I couple the 528 with the OM tuning fork and the results are frankly amazing.

    I use the Solfeggio 9 especially within my course where people spend a day using the tuning forks and are able to release at a deep cellular level all that prevents their body from moving forward. We then spend the following day releasing past lives, Karmic blocks and ancestral memory patterns. The effects are deep and life changing for some – but remains very gentle.

    I would love to know who else is doing what out there with them. There are some amazing testimonials on my website from someone who is deaf and HEARD the tones and someone else had pain relieved after one mini workshop session of 30 mins!! She did it for herself.

    Thank you so much for this site and taking the time to share so much.

    With love
    Debbi :-)

  6. The Solfeggio frequencies are truly wonderful. Try out the effect of listening to a selected one or the six pure frequencies simultaneously. You can do it here:

  7. I have a bamboo flute that is tuned to an ancient oriential scale of six notes. Hmm.

  8. Ken Lonewolf says:

    I have always worked with sound throughout my life. I used to tune sound systems for optimal performance, done live recordings, and I am a general music lover. So I have a good understanding of sound and our present music system. The musical scale we have is a linear scale with middle C (523.25hz) as a reference point. Doubling or halving any fundamental frequency will create the octaves, 2nd 3rd 4th and so on. These octaves are important because they are responsible for how a particular instrument sounds or how you hear music from various points in a sound field or stage which gives us localization, ambiance, and presence. As far as being a mathematical system the only common denominator is 2 or multiples of 2. The Solfeggio frequencies looks like a purely mathematical system with only pure fundamental frequencies. What interests me is the fact that it forms a complete circle instead of a flat line that our present music scale has. I believe that these pure frequencies represent resonant frequencies in our bodies, various organs and stimulate brain activity which is why I think they have such a profound effect on our bodies. This subject definitely deserves more research, this may be the future of medicine!

  10. Jill Riggall says:

    Hello Timberwolf
    I appreciated the article on Solfeggio frequencies very much and would like to know if there is one CD I can purchase that has all the solfeggio sounds on it that you have presented in your on line article “Solfeggio Frequencies and DNA”. I would be grateful for further information.

  11. I am the developer of Cosmic Rhythm Attunements, a process to bring forth Optimum Wellness by attuning to the planetary rhythm in a persons astrology birthchart. The attunements are induced with planetary and solfeggio body tuners ( tuning forks ) at an astrologically auspicious time.

    The trinity of planetary tuners, solfeggio tuners, and astrological timing induces a deeper attunement than using any one of these powerful modalities alone. Astrology provides a means of determining the exact moment when the cosmos best supports the induction of a specific Attunement. It clearly reveals when a particular cosmic gateway is open. Inducing the Attunement during that cosmic opening gives more ‘oomph’ to the process, that my sensitive clients are able to discern.

    The sacred solfeggio frequencies are a genuine godsend for softening the harsh energies of Saturn, Mars, & Pluto for example and for strengthening any delilitated planet ( a debilitated planet is a planet positioned ina sign that weakens it ). The solfeggio frequencies have added a whole new dimension to my Comic Rhythm Attunement process.

  12. Thank you so much for your response. I am just so happy that others are interested in these frequencies. Sometimes I just presume that everyone has a complete understanding of this frequencies – but I am learning that this is not so. I guess being a musician for the first part of my life and now a healer and therapist gives me added information that others not musically inclined may not have.

    Our present scale consists of 12 semitones. There is no pattern to them frequency wise. They were created by the Catholic Church to disempower people. The original Solfeggio consisted of 6 tones supposedly, although I am sure at some point in history they were aware of the complete circle of sound which consists of 9 divine frequencies. Mathematics and Music have always gone hand in hand – so a correct musical system much obey mathematics. Solfeggio does just this.
    Our present musical scale does not – it’s pure madness. Solfeggio follows a pure pattern which create a circle. When you reach the last note – numerlogically it progresses once again to the first note. So there are no other notes accept the 9. One system claims there are mirror frequencies – which I believe to be true. This also fits in with the whole system and works well – so then there would be 18 notes. But this system doesn’t have octaves like our present system – just pure notes – and only 18 of them. If we are to create a divine music here on earth we must come out of the box and develop a new system – as these notes are not compatable with a 12 note system. I will try to upload a diagram which shows this – so bear with me. If not you can find the information on my site. We would love to have you as a member.

    Much Love to you all

      This is not entirely accurate. There is quite a bit of pattern to music. The diatonic C scale was originally derived from the Circle of 5ths, each interval a 3/2 ratio, then dropped or raised an octave to arrive at the C scale. There are some mathematical problems when changing keys, though, so the “Well-tempered” scales and ultimately the modern “even-tempered” scale were developed to ease the transpositions to other keys. Musicians did this because they wanted variety, not the Catholic church.

    Thank you for subscribing to my blog. It is kind of a hodgepodge of different things and I hope you enjoy it.

    Regarding what I posted before, and then what Leiah wrote, I realize I had a wrong understanding of the “Mi” of the 528 Hz tone. If I now have a better understanding from what I understood Leiah to say, the 528 Hz tone is “Mi” in the Sacred Solfeggio tone scale and independent of the scale that we normally associate with “Do”, “Re”, “Mi”, etc. Sorry if I created any confusion by what I wrote before.

    I found your blog because I recently ordered a set of nine Sacred Solfeggio Tuning forks and I wanted to learn a little more about them. It’s wonderful that you have collected these sound samples all in one place!

  15. I am honored to have you as part of our network. The site presently contains the bear essentials about the Solfeggio Frequencies. I wanted to create a network where enlightened musicians and healers could discuss their experiences with these frequencies. There are many unanswered questions regarding the Solfeggio – many of which even Dr Leonard Horowitz cannot answer. I have been in email contact with him for sometime, but his actual knowledge on the Solfeggio is limited. I wish to take it further – as a musician and healer – I feel I can. Conspiracy Theories are not my game – even though I don’t deny they are not part of our present reality – it’s just not my path. The Solfeggio is. I hope to have more time soon to devote to this site and to the development of the Solfeggio within the main stream music busines. I am presently going through the process of relocating to the south coast of England. When I eventually settle – I will be upgrading the site. Thank you so much for your continued support. I have enjoyed browsing your site and together we can create miracles – maybe???

    Much Love Leiah Chantei

  16. Thank you for this wonderful article. Working with the Solfeggio for the last 2 years I still have many unanswered questions and often drive myself crazy trying to find the answers in a left brained, logical type way. As a musician of many years I find trying to make the Solfeggio tones part of our present musical system almost impossible. The “just intonation” of the Solfeggio just doesn’t fit into the “equal intonation” of our present musical system. By retuning our 523.25 hz (C) to 528 hz (Solfeggio MI) it doesn’t give us the whole range of the Solfeggio – it only gives us one note that is of divine frequency. Solfeggio is totally “out of the box” and we must create a new system to use these tones which will be totally removed from the old.

    I presently work with the whole 9 Divine Frequencies and their corresponding “mirrors”. We then have a system which consists of 18 frequencies only – no octaves.

    I would appreciate to hear from anyone interested in this topic who has any insight regarding how we can work with the Solfeggio in main stream music.
    Divine Blessings to each and everyone of you.

      Hi Leiah

      Thanks for dropping by and engaging in comment on this topic. I find it fascinating, so much so that I joined your Ning community. I look forward to finding out if you get a response to your questions and hearing the music you produce with the ‘Solfeggio frequencies’.


  17. These are really great samples of the individual tones. Thank you for putting them all together!

    In line with what Gail said, 528 Hz is closest to the frequecy of the C above middle-C, which is 523 Hz, and as the two frequencies are so close, it would take a good ear to be able to distinguish that they are different – that 528 Hz is a little tiny bit sharper than 523 Hz – so they would sound nearly the same to most listeners.

    I have seen in other websites that 528 Hz supposedly corresponds to “Mi”, but I don’t understand how this can be, unless “Do” would begin on Ab (because “Mi” is a major third above “Do”). The “Do”, “Re”, “Mi”, etc. scale can have a flexible starting point (i.e., it doesn’t always have to start on middle-C), but I would say that most people think of it as starting with middle-C (one octave below 523 Hz). I think it really would be more accurate to call 528 Hz a slightly sharp “Do” or, more precisely, a slightly sharp octave above what most people consider the normal starting tone for “Do” in the “Do”, “Re”, “Mi” scale.

  18. I have now created a network for those who work with or who are passionate about the Solfeggio Frequencies. It has been extremely difficult for me to find others who also work with these frequencies. I welcome anyone to join our network who is at all interested in sharing and learning about the Solfeggio.

    I am a certified Vibrational Therapist and have been working with the Solfeggio for the last 3 years for deep healing and transformation. I would love to share with others who are doing similar work.

    Please join me on:

  19. Hello dear sound people,

    I have studied and studied this Solfeggio thing for months. Still, I haven’t had evidence for this numerologistic idea.. It’s beautiful series of numbers of course but I don’t see any relation to frequencies. This Hz means one vibration per second, but what is second? A second doesn’t really mean a thing and it hasn’t been possible to measure time in such a small units. Even more impossible it is to make tuning forks only with plain ear to correspond to these specific frequencies. Also there’s no link between these frequencies and geometry or Fibonacci series or Phi.. And about 528 healing DNA- all the tracks lead only to Mr. Puleo & Horowitz. And all the “evidence” everywhere refers only to those two gentleman. Isn’t this weird? They must’ve sold millions of their books though.. :) But still, it’s great if those frequencies make people think to achieve these great things as awakening DNA- it’ll certainly do that!!

    But, the most interesting thing in these frequencies is: A small part, especially those “original” frequencies, is heard by ear little bit similarly as overtone spectrum. It is not the real overtone spectrum but it sounds like it. And I think this overtone spectrum is the true solfeggio sounds! The spectrum is heardable in every musical sound and it consists of relations- and relations are universal, the true sacred geometry! And of course this overtone spectrum is related to Fibonacci series and Phi! The first overtone is 1f of the f basic tone, the second is 2f, 3f and so on, it goes on eternally.. And there’s also “undertones” that are f/2, f/3 and so on. And I’ve realized that THESE tones might be related to chakras- undertones refer to earth chakras and the first 7 to our body chakras. There’s no specific frequencies- everybody can have their own special frequencies and these overtones are just related to this own sound!! What do you think of my idea? And also please, if u have some further info about Solfeggio scales, I’ll hear it with great gratitude!

    • Timberwolf says:

      Shamhat, thanks for your comment. In response to your claim that all “evidence” only leads back to Horowiz and Puelo, my article refers you to work undertaken by Dr. Candice Pert, PhD, David Hulse DD, Professor Willi Apel and Dr Joseph Barber. At the bottom of the article above the related posts, you will see links to additional articles that may be of use to you.

      I’m intrigued by your suggestion in relation to the ‘overtone of f’ and the ‘undertone of f’ having connection to the Fibonacci sequence and Phi as well as chakras. Please check my articles on Kundalini Yoga, Chakras and 7 and Cymatics – Sacred Geometry – DNA. You may also be interested in the comments and research undertaken by John Stuart Reid on the last article.

      Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you here again.

      • gnomad1618 says:

        I have to play devil’s advocate, here. I have done some searching on these other-than-Horowitz-and-Puelo researchers. I have found nothing that suggests they have done any research on the 528 frequency’s effect on DNA. Pert talks about sound and molecules, but mentions nothing of solfeggio in her books, CDs or website; Hulse, as a Doctor of Divinity, is hardly qualified to speak of the scientific reality of such a thing; Barber is a psychotherapist who mentions nothing of frequency on his own website; and Apel is a music historian who really only points that the solfeggio frequencies have changed. There is really no basis for knowing the actual frequencies that were originally used unless some tuned bells or forks survived intact from the time period.

        • I realize this was posted a years ago, but this bugs me so much, I can’t help but post a reply. The “research” done on this all falls back to Horowitz and it’s weak. Horowitz relies entirely on the divine “revelations” of Puleo. Have you read their book? I have. And I bought a Jewish Bible as well and tried to locate the information that is “revealed” within it as described by Puleo. Apparently, according to him, it doesn’t matter if you have an English version or one in ancient Hebrew or if it is modern or ancient; it all reveals the same. I wanted to believe, I tried to believe it, but their concepts are so wrought with ridiculousness, ANY book could have been used. It’s just numerology used to postulate a pattern that randomly appears. Millions of patterns randomly appear. So what? Once the supposed pattern was discovered, Puleo just added 111 to it to get the other frequencies. What kind of discovery is that?

          I absolutely believe sound frequencies can heal us, but in several years, I have found nothing to support the work of Horowitz and Puleo. Countless websites exist to sell tuning forks or CDs using the “solfeggio frequencies” but they are believing Horowitz without any outside evidence to support it. Unfortunately, this website through this blog is doing the same. If I am wrong, and I would love to be wrong on this, please provide one link to an independent, scientific white paper or similar that supports the DNA work or any study being done with these frequencies in a medical setting. Good luck with that.

        • Hi Parkeb

          Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with my readers and I. All opinions are welcome here at TimberwolfHQ. I understand your frustrations and concerns about people churning out spurious information to sell CD’s or tuning forks, however, that is not what this website is about. It is a collection of eclectic topics that interest me as the author and those in the community who are my readers. Contrary opinions and serious debate are always encouraged.

  20. Thank you so much. I’m into music production (electronic), and I have done a little research into this. I was doubtful at first, but tell me, this stuff is supposed to alter humans? And what would those side effects be?

    • Timberwolf says:

      Hi PsiWolf

      Thanks for you comment. Interesting point about the effects on humans. From the research I have undertaken so far, the effects observed have only been beneficial. I have not done any research into the effects of frequencies other than those mentioned in the post above. It is something to consider and look into.

  21. If my ear’s accurate (who knows), the 528 vid is actually playing a standard keyboard “C”, which is not 528 but is 523. I’m enjoying this free iPhone app from the app store called FreqGen which allows you to put in exact numeric frequencies and then turn them on (binaural woot). I’m really curious how these tones relate to singing bowls…

    • Timberwolf says:

      Hi Gail

      Thanks for the heads up on the 528 htz frequency video. I’ll check it out and update the insert should it need it.

      Stop by again and Keep the helpful comments coming.

  22. awwwwww….lovely
