Music Is Healthy For Humans

Despite the stress songwriters occasional feel when suffering through the creative process, music is apparently good for human health. Medical researchers experimenting with music as therapy are now finding that music also may have the power to heal.

According to medical research conducted recently at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, music therapy has been used successfully to help stroke victims recover their use of speech.

Researchers found that some stoke victims who were unable to speak were able to "sing" the same verbal content using music, a result that might be explained by the fact that music seems to be governed by one side of the brain and speech by another.

Researches have also used music to help relieve chronic pain. Studies suggest that medication and music therapy together are more effective in relieving pain than medication alone.

Also, in recent experiments with patients of Alzheimer's disease, researchers now believe music can be used to help patients focus and communicate better.

"Music," as the philosopher Confucius wrote, "produces the kind of pleasure human nature cannot do without."
