Sing to beat dis­ease

Coventry Telegraph - - NATIONAL -

PEO­PLE suf­fer­ing from Parkin­son’s dis­ease can sing them­selves bet­ter, re­search sug­gests.

A pi­lot study found that singing ther­apy led to fewer in­vol­un­tary move­ments, im­prove­ments in mood, and less stress. Re­searchers from Iowa State Uni­ver­sity in the US warned that the early find­ings should be treated with cau­tion, but said the ben­e­fits matched those from tak­ing med­i­ca­tion.

Each year, around 145,000 peo­ple in the UK are di­ag­nosed with Parkin­son’s.
