Music & Medicine

Can music be the catalyst for a better life as we age? Can it be the means of restoration for someone suffering from Alzheimerโ€™s or other forms of dementia?


Pass The Medicine

Research from several organizations* ย throughout the U.S. and Canada prove the therapeutic benefits of personalized music upon 171px-medicine_aryballos_louvre_ca1989-2183thousands of individuals. Apart fromย dementia, ย personsย  also struggling with other chronic and physical impairments showed significant improvements in their condition.

Results also showed more social and societal connections with family and friends, as well as better moods and behavioral changes.

The studyย is in no way advocating that all dementia patients dispense with their medications and listen to classicalย  music instead. Indeed, any changes in lifestyle or medication should only be done under the supervision of a health care professional.

However, the good news is that there is now an alternative for persons struggling to escape the isolation of dementia, apart from reliance on medication.

So even if classical music is not your cup of tea, other forms of personalized music have shown beneficial results. These musical favoritesย tap deep into past memoriesย influencing emotion and behavior.ย  This evokes feelings ofย  โ€“ ย not onlyย  the person they used to beย  โ€“ but who they still areย  deep down inside. ieatbrainz

So letโ€™s pass the medicine, spread the music.
