Worldwide, more than 422 million people are affected by the various types of diabetic disorders—a drastic jump from the 108 million affected in 1980. If the upward trend of its significance isn’t halted soon, the World Health Organization (WHO) believes diabetes will become the seventh leading cause of death by 2030. Those are some scary facts. Especially when you consider an estimated 1.6 million deaths in 2015 were directly caused by diabetes and another 2.2 million were tied to high blood glucose, according to WHO. Despite being around for a long time, the exponential growth of people with the disease has the world on alert.

For many decades, music therapy is being used by medical professionals to help patients prepare for and recover from surgery, help to fight depression or anxiety, especially in children with autism.

Innovative Uses for Music Therapy on Pregnant Moms and Preemies

by   -  June 26th, 2014

Music is as old as time itself and as profound as we allow it to be. Those who listen can find music even in the most mundane things; the hum of the furnace against the ticking of the clock, and the rotating of the dryer! Or perhaps the gently melody in blades of grass bending to the wind, mixing with the sound of crickets nearby.
