Hello ladies! I found a great article listed under the link section which describes art's healing effects.

Below is the link for your convenience:

does_art_heal


"Indeed, scientists have documented health benefits from exposure to art at all stages of life. Lullabies have been shown to promote neurological development and weight gain in premature infants, while dance appears to help elderly patients with dementia retain greater intellectual, emotional, and motor functions."

"Some scientists believe that such feelings of control and mastery trigger an increase in the production of disease-fighting cells."

This is just a tiny part of a very interesting article. I always figured that art helped, but who knew?

Try harder--in everything that you do!
If the mind mends, the body will follow.
Gluten free is working for me!

By the inch, it's a cinch, by the mile, it's a trial!
I am baby stepping to health and wellness.
