A recent experimental study may reduce some of the heavy motor and mood disorders associated with Parkinson's disease, which affects more than 10 million people in the world, usually affecting the elderly.
Patients with Parkinson's disease are affected by heart attack and depression, but drugs can help reduce symptoms, but may be less effective and may have side effects due to the appearance of the disease.
Recently, researchers at the Iowa University conducted a pilot study to control the effect of singing on a small group of Parkinson patients. The research team was led by Dr. Elizabeth Stigmoller, MD, MD, who examined the advantages of singing in the treatment of patients with Parkinson's disease.
Also, singing has proved to be a good part of therapy as well as improved patient absorption, because singing requires strict control of the muscles of the mouth and mouth.
The study was devoted to the therapeutic song group, which consisted of 17 people, who were on average about 2.4 years. Researchers measured heart rate, blood pressure and cortisol levels before and after the session. In addition, participants conducted a survey to evaluate the levels of anxiety, anxiety, anger and happiness.
Even though the heart rate, blood pressure and cortisol levels fell on the plate – in smaller sizes – no change was significant, and after sessions there was a significant decrease in the level of concern and grief.
Patients improved in the week, began to migrate with mood and simple steps, gradually improving their mood.
