Music has a Good Effect on a Person's Health, According to Medical Studies

"Music is the universal language of mankind"— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Listening to the Mozart and Beethoven music helps in the development of a child’s brain, and has a calming effect on every person, according to medical studies.

Music has a good effect on the health of every person, especially those sounds which have calming effects, specifically the classical music composed by Beethoven and Mozart and the jazz music composed by Bacharach.

In one study, it was confirmed that a baby inside the womb of his mother reacts to the music he hears and it helped in the development of the baby’s brain and thus raises their IQ. Nowadays, there are pregnant women who put a music player on top of their stomach and play classical music, on the belief that it will help her baby to become intelligent.

It is advised that listening to classical music while studying helps a person achieve better grades in school, according to a medical study.

Listening to music lessens the pain of a sick person, according to a medical study done in the United Kingdom and published in the Journal of Advanced Learning. Nowadays, many hospitals use music therapy while in the process of giving birth. This is done in order to lessen the postoperative pain, and as added anesthesia for the patients while undergoing surgery procedure.

In one study reported in the American Society of Hypertension, listening to classical music by persons with hypertension helped lower their blood pressure within thirty minutes.

Listening to jazz music helps people with insomnia. In forty-five minutes, the person feels relaxed and able to sleep.

According to Christy Feuerstahler, Valley VNA music coordinator, music therapy for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia is powerful.

Research showed that as we age, listening to or playing music sharpens our brain.

In summary, various medical studies which were done in the United Kingdom and America, have proven that listening to classical and jazz music has a good effect on the health of a person because:

  • It reduces anxiety thus results in a calming effect
  • It helps ease the pain of a sick person
  • It lowers the high blood pressure
  • It strengthens the immune system
  • It is good for the heart
  • It improves the quality of the sleep
  • It helps persons recovering from a stroke
  • It heals a headache and migraine
  • It increases the IQ of a child
  • It has a powerful effect on people with Alzheimer’s disease

Scientists at Stanford University, in California, have recently revealed a molecular basis for the “Mozart Effect," but not other music. Dr. Rauscher and her colleague H. Li, a geneticist, have discovered that rats, like humans, perform better on learning and memory tests after listening to a specific Mozart’s sonata.

A book called The Mozart Effect by Don Campbell has condensed the world’s research on all the beneficial effects of certain types of music.

Ludwig van Beethoven said that “music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life.”

According to writer Khalil Gibran, “music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life, bringing peace, abolishing strife.”

On the basis of the results of the above-mentioned research and medical studies conducted, it is advised that people who want to have an intelligent and smart child should do the above.
