High Cholesterol - Creative Therapies
Music & Dance therapy
Patient QI found no studies that could specifically relate a cholesterol lowering effect to dance or music as an exercise form. However, it has long been known that music can affect an athlete’s performance and in 2007 music was banned from the 2007 New York Marathon. A paper published by Brunel University in the Sport Journal claims that one of the ways in which music affects athletes is by enabling them to divert their attention away from fatigue. The athletes enjoy the training more and the beat of the music also helps in pacing. So any form of exercise accompanied by music is good for both the soul and health. Music can help people with High cholesterol stick to their exercise programs and loose weight.
The High Cholesterol - Creative Therapies will be updated regularly as new evidence is published in the medical literature.
