This is quite an interesting question,
"Can Music cure some disease and conditions?"
There has been no direct evidence of music healing or curing any disease but professionals acknowledge music as a powerful healing tool and treatment for some disease and conditions. In medicine there is something referred to has " Music Therapy''
What is medical music therapy?
Some stories and quotes from mythological and biblical sources also provide evidence of this. A common example is a biblical text that mentions the use of music in a seemingly therapeutic way:
1 Samuel 16:14-23: “An evil spirit troubled King Saul and it made him afraid, his officials told him. ‘Your Majesty, let us go and look for someone who is good at playing the harp. He can play music for you whenever the evil spirit bothers you, and you’ll feel better''. A young man called David was found. David went to King Saul and started working for him. Whenever the evil spirit from bothered Saul, David would play music. Saul would relax and feel better, and the evil spirit would go away.”
Diseases and Conditions that Music Therapy can Treat
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health disorder that can cause above-normal levels of hyperactive and impulsive behaviours. People with ADHD may also have trouble focusing their attention on a single task or sitting still for long periods of time. Music is a powerful tool that is used in treatments of people with ADHD, Music has a rhythm that sometimes helps ADHD patients focus.
Parkinson's disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement, Scientists believe a lack of dopamine causes Parkinson's disease. Music therapy is used for the treatment of Parkinson's disease since music can help stimulate the production of dopamine.
Alzheimer and Dementia
Alzheimer's disease is a progressive disorder that causes brain cells to degenerate and die. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of Dementia, continuous decline in thinking, behavioural and social skills that disrupts a person's ability to function independently.
Music may help those with Alzheimer's and Dementia because familiar songs can bring out memories in a patient that may have been lost.
This is a reduced ability to hear sounds in the same way as other people. Music can't cure hearing loss, but it may help prevent it. So listen more to Music today.
Heart Attack and Stroke
A heart attack occurs when blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked, usually by a blood clot. Without oxygenated blood, the heart muscle begins to die. A stroke is a brain attack, cutting off vital blood flow and oxygen to the brain. A stroke happens when a blood vessel feeding the brain gets clogged or bursts.
Music therapy is used to help patients who are recovering from heart attacks by lowering blood pressure and heart rate thereby reducing anxiety
Music therapy can help patients who are recovering from heart attacks and heart surgery by lowering blood pressure, slowing the heart rate and reducing anxiety. Research says listening to songs that evoke a sense of joy can expand blood vessels and increase circulation which encourages good vascular health.
We have probably not even discovered everything about the therapeutic power of Music, hopefully, with more study and research we would.
Make sure listening to music is part of your daily routine, it does wonders to the human body.
