Music Benefits Both Mental And Physical Health


Music Benefits Both Mental And Physical Health


Playing and listening to music benefits both mental and physical health.

The finding came from the first-large scale review of 400 research papers in the neurochemistry of music which found that music can improve the function of the body's immune system and reduce levels of stress.....Listening to music was also shown to be more successful than prescription drugs in decreasing a person's anxiety before undergoing surgery.

.... music increases an antibody that plays an important role in immunity of the mucous system, known as immunoglobulin A, as well as natural killer cell counts, the cells that attack germs and bacteria invading the body.....Listening to and playing music can also lower levels of cortisol (the stress hormone), ....music therapy, when combined with standard care, is a successful treatment for depression.....
