Musical Prescriptions: Compose a Healthier You

The Chinese character for medicine includes the character for music. Native Americans and Africans sing and chant in their healing rituals. Today, Western medicine bankrupts economies and Alzheimer's seems as common as the cold. Is there a different approach within earshot? A plethora of data from places like Harvard, NIH, and Stanford support using music as therapy for Alzheimer's, depression, mood disorders, heart rate, and improved post-surgery recovery. Imagine having a musical protocol designed just for you and your condition. Imagine having a daily record of its effect assessed by your doctor who can make changes on the fly. No additional drug or safety concerns. Just better health.
