Music Found to Significantly Reduce Pain, Anxiety in Postop Heart Surgeries

music reduces pain anxiety in heart postoperative patients

Given that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the world, prevention and treatment have never been more important. While conventional cardiology relies heavily on pharmaceuticals in the management of cardiac conditions, music has been shown to have remarkable benefits without any side effects—music as medicine.

Ancient cultures understood the healing benefits of music and integrated it into their promotion of health and healing of disease. But this practice was mostly lost in the rise of western medicine. Today, that connection is gradually being restored as a new wave of research is being done on the healing benefits of music on the heart.

One such recent study found that listening to music is linked to a significant reduction in anxiety and pain after major heart surgery. The researchers concluded that clinicians should consider music for patients scheduled for surgery as it has none of the risks or side effects, and many of the benefits of the drugs most commonly used to aid in post-surgery recovery.

How Sage And Similar Herbs Help Us Extinguish Toxins And Heal

Nature has given us an abundance of healing plants and minerals, more than we’ll ever need. The Earth, which also sources life from its sister realms, is flush with life. We have yet to discover some of its most unique lifeforms. If we’re conscious and proactive, we can continue to benefit from the ancient plant knowledge that is still accessible to us.

The premise is simple: we can restore ourselves using tinctures, herbs, and supplements born from the Earth’s wildlife. Whether it’s to remove toxins, treat organs, extinguish tumors, or find a more profound peacefulness, the trees, plants, flowers, and shrubs nearest to you might hold the secrets to your recovery and detoxification. At the very least, they might expunge some of the toxins that negatively impact our minds, hearts, and immune systems. 

Living on Earth is not easy. Society has developed in such a way that it has become a complex contradiction. It builds infrastructures that support living, but it rarely nurtures or promotes life. To counterbalance this, we can foster a symbiotic connection with nature, not only to extract medicinal value but to create mindful bridges. You might consider caressing your favorite plant, cleaning her leaves with love, and verbally telling her how much you love her. Also, when you see a little creature flying in the sky, pour your heart toward his soul.

“There’s an herb for every system, every organ, every gland, and every tissue of your body. Mother nature has put medicine in our food.” — Bob Marley 

While we might be limited in a variety of ways, all lifeforms can find power by uniting, protecting, and feeding each other. It’s in this way that the herbs growing on our planet are reaching out to us. They are the embodiment of life’s desire to expand and connect. They rise toward the sun with one mission: serve all life and give all living-Beings what they need to live, thrive, heal, and survive. 

Here are some of the most potent and nutritious herbs, in various forms, that can help you relax, extinguish toxins, and heal what ails you:
