Magazine Description

In this issue

Music for the Healthy Heart Music touches us where no physical remedy could ever reach. It has a unique, special power that helps build up all kinds of healthy emotion a person has in store. This may account for some hospitals having piped-in music in its surgical suites, recovery rooms, intensive and coronary care units (where stress levels are high both before and after surgical procedures). Its effect does not only benefit the patients but family members, relatives, and friends, too. Even nursing homes, populated by the elderly members of society, have joined the band wagon. In this issue of H&L, Dr. Adolfo B. Bellosillo talks about the many benefits of music, particularly in preventive and rehabilitative medicine and cardiovascular diseases. Music has been claimed to have a positive effect on verbal and oral communications, and visual skills. To a practitioner involved in the care of cardiovascular diseases, the introduction of music, as adjunct to whatever traditional form of management has been adopted, is another pathway to achieving protective effect on heart rate, blood pressure and ventricular over-activity. Dr. Bellosillo hopes that through the Foundation for Lay Education on Heart Diseases, Inc. (FLEHD), of which he is the president, he can propagate the concept of music and how to optimize its benefits on the heart and body.
