    Can someone explain something to me
    So I learn about toxoplasmosis infection and that it causes mental changes in the infected individual
    Next I'm watching some medical drama and they mention how toxoplasmosis in the brain is a signature sign of HIV/AIDS and that in non-immunocompromised individuals it's never in the brain

    Cat purrs will help promote your bodies natural healing process, it will cause your tissue to release chemicals and hormones that act as a mild vasodilator.
    Its not going to knit broken bones or turn you into Wolverine.
    Also a warm purring cat in your lap will release dopamine and oxytocin, cats and dogs are basically mild four legged antidepressants. Which is also good for promoting your natural immune system.

      >explain the logic behind sound waves vibrating through the air and hitting your eardrums is going to repair your fricking joints and broken bones
      moron. Its not the sound that heals you its the literal vibrations. The cat needs to be sitting on you. A cat purring 10 feet away from you does frick all for your knees. But one purring on your lap will, if anything it'll help fight joint seizing with age for anyone who has a sitting job. But most pets you can sit on your lap will help you somewhat with this just because of the heat and pressure. Cats are just better.
      And in the end if you aren't a broken human being with no soul hearing a cat purr makes you happier naturally, and being happy is healthy and promotes healing.
      You probably are a dumb zoomer tho so you have a decade or two before you know what I'm talking about.

        Not only is it total bullshit with weak correlations, there is something pet related that strongly correlates with all of these things (meaning it actually works)

        Walking a dog. The coolest part about it, is you don't even need a dog to exercise. You can do it by yourself if you don't like dogs!

        Frequent low impact exercise correlates with:
        Heart health
        Low blood pressure
        Lower osteoporosis risk and higher bone density
        Better joint health
        Less stress
        Less erectile dysfunction
        Higher intelligence

        If literally just vibrations of some frequency modulated by some other worked we would have every patient with a wallet sitting in a vibrating chair or wearing a heated, vibrating lap blanket. It doesn't actually work.

          And yes, joint massagers are a thing which help older people with bad joints.
          Heated blankets and massage chairs can work depending on the issues, as long as you don't overdo it. Same with heated compresses, really. I don't fricking understand why you morons are being such c**ts about this.

          Holy shit you dumbass.
          > Normal therapeutic applications of vibration have been shown to significantly increase blood flow (3) (4) (5). In one trial vibrations both 30 and 50 Hz were shown to substantially increase peripheral blood flow, with 50 Hz giving the superior results, having a more rapid and longer lasting effect. 30 Hz vibration slowly increased blood flow, which lasted for about 7 minutes. 50 Hz increased blood flow more rapidly, and was still increased 15 minutes later.
          > Various studies have shown that the application of vibration massage in the range of 20-60 Hz causes muscles to relax.Vibrations from 100-200 Hz have been shown to cause muscles to contract.
          > The main way vibration massage helps reduce pain is to help address the causes of pain, such as tight sore muscles and trigger points (tender lumps in muscles). However, the application of stimulation at 100 Hz has been shown to neurologically block pain. As an example, a trial showed that repeated applications of 100 Hz massage to the distal quadriceps muscles (just above the knee) produced a considerable reduction of symptoms in those with osteoarthritis of the knees.
          > Cramps and spasms are caused by neurological reflexes. These are generally useful. As an example stretch reflexes stimulate your muscles to tighten when rapid or excessive stretching is detected. This is an excellent protective mechanism that prevents muscles from being overstretched and damaged. However, these can "lock on" abnormally in the case of muscle cramps or spasms, and is a core problem in (myofascial) trigger points: arguably the most common cause of conditions such as back, neck and shoulder pain. Vibration in the range of 30-50 Hz has been shown to temporarily suppress this reflex.
          > The application of vibration has been shown to enable the nervous system to stimulate more receptors in muscles, both in number and type. The result is higher maximum contraction force and increased muscular effort.

            It's worth noting that most studies are bunk if you try to verify the sources or reproduce the results yourself. It's better than nothing, but this may or may not be conclusive evidence of anything. I have no skin in the game so I don't feel compelled to verify these things myself, since it's very time consuming. The point is, simply posting excerpts from studies is not enough to shut someone up. The sources will always be attacked unless you've done extreme diligence.

              > Animal and human studies suggest that high-frequency, low-magnitude vibration therapy improves bone strength by increasing bone formation and decreasing bone resorption. There is also evidence that vibration therapy is useful in treating sarcopenia, which confounds skeletal fragility and fall risk in aging. Enhancement of skeletal and muscle strength involves regulating the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells to build these tissues; mesenchymal stem cell lineage allocation is positively promoted by vibration signals.
              > Conditions associated with reduced mobility and systemic decline lead to failure of the musculoskeletal system with loss of skeletal strength and muscle dysfunction, significantly compromising measures of life quality. Both bone and muscle perceive and respond to local dynamic loading, building form, and strength to support function [1]. The need to mechanically load the skeleton translates to ‘use it or lose it’. As such, pathological or occupational reductions in functional loading manifest as bone becomes more susceptible to fracture [2]. To avoid off-target pharmacological complications, it makes more sense to physically target the musculoskeletal system: mechanical signals present unique advantages in that effects are both self-targeting and self-optimizing. However, typical exercise regimens (running or walking) are difficult for frail individuals. Vibration therapy delivered as a low-magnitude, high-frequency stimulus [‘LIV’ defined as <1 gravity (g =acceleration of 9.81 m/s2, frequency >30 Hz)] offers a means to deliver relevant mechanical signals safely to patients who can not exercise to build musculoskeletal strength [3]. Low intensity vibration (LIV), as compared with devices that deliver high-magnitude signals (>1g), provides different levels of applicability and safety.

              > A current hypothesis suggests the purr indicates contentment, however, cats purr when they are severely injured or frightened. Forty‐four felids were recorded including cheetahs, ocelots, pumas, domestic cats, and servals. A Sony TCD‐D8 Digital Audio Recorder (DAT) and Statham Radio microphones recorded the purrs. FFTs and spectrographs were performed using National Instrument’s Polynesia. An accelerometer was also used to measure domestic cat purrs. Every felid in the study generated strong frequencies between 25 and 150 Hz. Purr frequencies correspond to vibrational/electrical frequencies used in treatment for bone growth/fractures, pain, edema, muscle growth/strain, joint flexibility, dyspnea, and wounds. Domestic cats, servals, ocelots, and pumas produce fundamental, dominant, or strong frequencies at exactly 25 Hz and 50 Hz, the two low frequencies that best promote bone growth/fracture healing [Chen etal., Zhong. Wai Ke Za Zhi. 32, 217–219 (1994)]. These four species have a strong harmonic exactly at, or within 2 Hz of 100 Hz, a frequency used therapeutically for pain, edema, wounds, and dyspnea. An internal healing mechanism would be advantageous, increasing recovery time and keeping muscles and bone strong when sedentary.

      Modern science doesn't have to explain shit because it already acts like a religion in practice.

      It's already too late: Empirical objectivity is mostly determined at this point by how much it can be commodified.

      The only thing left to do is decide what will generate the least amount of profit and second,

      what you want to believe for yourself.

      Example:
      You want a cobra, then get a cobra, but never talk about it, never show it off on the internet, don't even speak about it near a computer or cellphone, acquire mice for it in person at a pet store. Because otherwise the information that you have a cobra will be processed and used to gear marketting toward you that will nudge you into making specific purchases and once the material you produced has generated enough content, it will be used to promote your lifestyle for others to adopt also and all of a sudden,

      everybody will want to own a cobra and try to be a better you than you, yourself and it'll be a big damn competition for half the world to enter by equipping themselves with The Right Choice of products and services (that makes someone else more money) and all because you just irrationally had a desire that came entirely out of your own being.

      Certain frequencies have been shown in clinical studies to promote a very minor healing effect (attributed to increased blood flow, which can be done in a shitload of other ways anyway), but those studies use actual powered transducers that are several orders of magnitude stronger than a cat's purr. morons just conflate it with their pet with no evidence other than, "LOL SAME FREQUENCY." Well guess what? Nikki Minaj's Superbass also has a lot of notes in that range and no one is using that to promote healing.
