In the news (from BBC): “Music ‘nurtures’ premature babies” Mounting evidence suggests that playing music to premature babies while hospitalized helps them grow and thrive.
The benefits are calmer infants and parents, as well as faster weight gain for the babies and shorter hospital stays.
A Canadian team reviewed nine studies and found music reduced pain and encouraged better oral feeding.
My comment: Music helps because it contains harmony born out of the unity between opposites. It is precisely when these opposites unite that they create harmony which corrects destructive thoughts, desires and qualities. Outwardly, this manifests as relaxation, distraction, etc. However, this quality is only contained within music with huge internal harmony such as classical music (Mozart) and not music that is built on destruction (Rock, Pop, etc).Melodies of the Upper Worlds - Part 1 [31:31m]: Play Now | Download
