Music is one of the few activities that involves using the whole brain. It is intrinsic to all cultures and can have surprising benefits not only for learning language, improving memory and focusing attention, but also for physical coordination and development.
Effective therapy for pain
Overall, music does have positive effects on pain management. Music can help reduce both the sensation and distress of both chronic pain and postoperative pain.
Listening to music can reduce chronic pain from a range of painful conditions, including osteoarthritis, disc problems and rheumatoid arthritis, by up to 21% and depression by up to 25%, according to a paper in the latest UK-based Journal of Advanced Nursing.
Music therapy is increasingly used in hospitals to reduce the need for medication during childbirth, to decrease postoperative pain and complement the use of anesthesia during surgery.
Reducing blood pressure
By playing recordings of relaxing music every morning and evening, people with high blood pressure can train themselves to lower their blood pressure – and keep it low31. According to research reported at the American Society of Hypertension meeting in New Orleans, listening to just 30 minutes of classical, Celtic or raga music every day may significantly reduce high blood pressure.
Medicine for the heart
Music is good for your heart. Research shows that it is musical tempo, rather than style. Italian and British researchers32recruited young men and women, half of whom were trained musicians. The participants slipped on head phones and listened to six styles of music, including rap and classical pieces, with random two-minute pauses.

The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo. Why are we not aware of this? Its because some big corporation want to make back their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for sale.
The principal interest in this plant is because of its strong anti-cancer effects. Although it is effective for a number of medical conditions, it is its anti tumor effect that is of most interest. This plant is a proven cancer remedy for cancers of all types.
Besides being a cancer remedy, graviola is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent for both bacterial and fungal infections, is effective against internal parasites and worms, lowers high blood pressure and is used for depression, stress and nervous disorders.
New crystal alert! I picked up a few new stones/crystals for the collection. Earlier this week I was grabbed by some Vesuvianite. This stone feels smooth and soft. I always find it interesting how something solid can feel soft. Meditation with Vesuvianite will be going down soon. Right Now I have been focusing in on Dalmatian Jasper. The pattern reminds me of a Cheetah or Leopard never an actual Dalmatian puppy. The energy is interesting and fun. The best way I can describe the Dalmatian energy sensations is: Picture your hand balled into a fist jasper being held within, imagine a infinity symbol around your hand and the energy is flowing-following the pattern of the infinity symbol outline. Now imagine two infinite symbols in a X kind of pattern with energy flowing through the outline of the double figure 8. Also seemed to be directing my attention to the root chakra in an magnetic kind of way. Carnelian I have heard much about and it was mentioned to me last night so I decided I have to pick some up. The Limonite Quartz caught my eye with the mimosa orange stained exterior. Quartz clusters are my go to lately, I just can not seem to get enough of them. More crystals and experiences/sensations with them coming soon.

Dimethyltryptamine, better known as DMT, is an illegal psychedelic drug you’ve probably never heard of that is produced by your own body.
DMT is created by mixing an enzyme with an amino acid, the latter of which is found in many forms of organic life.
It can be smoked, drunk or even injected and produces a powerful hallucinatory experience.
