MUSIC OR DRUGS? _ By Agecha Paul
The influence of music: by what means it can profit health
“Music in itself is curative,” It is a volatile manifestation of humanity. It is something by which we are all gladdened. No matter what beliefs we have, all people love music.” I am sure most people could agree with me if I said that music had created a universal bond and it has made researchers from all over the world find out its therapeutic potential
Every person has at least a song that triggers how they reason and how their bodies typically respond to the surrounding. Some people are reminded of many things by these songs. Some are reminded about when they were deeply in love, others when they had a breakup, loss of a loved one, and so on.
We are deeply connected to music because it is deeply stuck onto our minds and bodies. Melody, rhythm, and harmony reverberate in physiology and the functioning of any human being.
Very many studies have been carried out, and they have proved that music can be useful to your mental health, and we are therefore deeply connected to music. Studies have shown that listening to music increases the dopamine levels produced in the brain. Dopamine is a chemical that enhances the mood of a person and helps them make it achievable treatment for depression. Listening to hip-hop music can also assist individuals in fixing health disorders.
Many researchers have realized that music is of excellent benefit, even beyond mental health. They have advised health experts to call for music therapy to be incorporated widely into healthcare settings.
Music should be used in many conditions so that it can improve current treatment strategies.
Music reduces discomfort and nervousness.
One of the good things that music does to someone is that, when the music sounds, you will barely feel pain. This method has been used by most people to reduce the pain in patients who have undergone surgery. Seven thousand patiently were analyzed after an operation was done to them. The report showed that the patients subjected to music said they felt less or no pain, but those who did not tell the medics needed painkillers. This effect also depends on the kind of music the patient listens.
