Susan Taylor's curator insight, December 16, 2013 9:34 PM

Mindfulness has become more mainstream as a way to enhance our quality of life.  Practicing mindfulness meditation not only helps to reduce stress; studies now show that it may also help to relieve chronic inflammation.

 

In past studies, "there has been little evidence to support benefits specific to mindfulness meditation practice".   So neuroscientists at the University of Wisconsin wanted to "develop an intervention that was meant to produce positive change and compare the mindfulness approach to an intervention that was structurally equivalent".

 

The results? People suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions not only experience symptom relief through mindfulness meditation...Turns out that a mindfulness-based approach is more effective than other activities that promote well-being.

Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, December 13, 2013 1:42 PM

Interesting summary piece from the New Yorker a few months ago - the main focus being a study in Japanon recovery rates of mice after heart surgery with some groups being exposed to music and some not.  The takeaway - along with other studies referenced is that music is good for you and can make you feel better.  There's an interesting essay from Kimberly Sena Moore who used this article to question the whole idea that it's just "Music makes you feel good."  Her point is that music does so much more than just help in recovery, there are so many areas in which music affects us that distilling it down to just making you feel good seems a bit sophomoric and basic.  You can read Kimberley's post here:  http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/your-musical-self/201312/music-its-more-feel-good

Music heals and uplifts. 

Lindsay Ahmann's curator insight, January 11, 2014 9:19 PM

I found this article very interesting because this could be the next big thing in medical advances. If they find music to help the healing process, we could improve our surgical survival rates along with our recovery from other diseases. As long as the patient finds the music enjoyable, it is proven to show accelerated recovery. Being able to test this experiment and find positive results is really a cool thing because it shows how our body responds to certain noises and frequencies.
