We learned about music remedy while my sister-in-law, Merilee was moving into a full care nursing facility. Merilee experienced the symptoms of dementia and even while her memory faded she could sing every word (in tune) to a popular song. She had a lovely melodious voice and would sing along with the visiting musicians. musically followers
My own brother, Gary and My spouse and i attended many of the concerts held at the facility. We would observe patients who were in bed in their wheel seats become fully alert when the background music began. First their feet would get started tapping to the beat of the music then smiling, clapping, and singing.
Merilee’s love for music inspired a personnel member to advise Whilst gary to hire a music therapist for Merilee. Every week the therapist would bring various instruments on her behalf to play and they would sing familiar music together. Merilee was always excited to see her musical friend.
I actually do a lot of research, write articles, and receive information and test studies regarding chronic pain, chronic tiredness, and fibromyalgia.
I just received a copy of an article that was written by Shivani Lalloo and published on March 28, 2014 by ProHealth on-line magizine. “The Results of Music Therapy on Fibromyalgia. ” In the article Shivani cited the following comment from specialist Mark Jude Tramo, Meters. D., Ph. D., overseer of Harvard’s Institute for Music and Brain Research in Boston and a faculty member of the university’s Mind/Brain/Behavior Initiative:
“We believe music can cause neurochemical changes in specific regions of the brain that are related to the body’s feel-good systems-for example, in pain-modulating neurotransmitters. In addition, music’s auditory excitement of the brain may cause cells to release endorphins, which suppress pain, and immunoglobulin antibiotics, which help fight disease. inches
It has come to my attention that music remedy is not only a new sensation. While researching this subject I learned all about a 1789 unsigned article, which was published in the Columbian Magazine eligible “Music Physically Considered. inch Further, Dr. Benjamin Hurry, a health care provider, psychiatrist, and tutor was obviously a strong proponent of using music to treat medical diseases. A pair of his students Edwin Atlee and Samuel Mathew wrote medical dissertations on the restorative value of music in the early 1800s.
To my thrill I found a duplicate of the19-page dissertation authored by Edwin Atlee entitled “An Initial Essay on the Affect of Music in the Cure of Diseases. “- By Edwin A. Atlee, of Pennsylvania. I found his writing captivating with the taste of Ancient English influence, wordiness, and humbleness.
Listed here are a few of Edwin Atlee’s responses about music and their influence on the body:
“Fascinating Power of Music. ”
“Music is to the mind, what opium is to the body, a DEVINE TREATMENTS. ”
“In the diseases of debility, we may suppose that lively noises may afford a healthy stimulus to the body, invigorating it as a cordial or tonic medication. “
