Could simply listening to Mozart help people with epilepsy?



Listening to music composed by Mozart could help control seizures. The news from researchers add to the health benefits discovered in the past that listening to classical music might help people dealing with epilepsy. 

The findings that were presented last month at the European College of Neurpsychopharmacology; is a large study and based on reviews of literature that might inspire your doctor to suggest this simple intervention, combined with current treatment. 

Researchers, Dr. Glanluca Sesso and Dr. Frederico Sicca from the University of Pisa specifically looked at how Mozart's music affects epilepsy. Their review included 9 published studies out of 147; based on solid science and of good quality. 

Daily listening changes brain signals too

Mozart's music also changed brain signals that are commonly seen in patients diagnosed with epilepsy,  in addition to lowering the number of seizures for people that listen to music daily. Tehe reduction varied between 31 and 66 percent. 

Dr. Sisso shared in a press release that it may be rhythm of Mozart's music that affect several brain systems. Music is clearly good for mental health because. 

The "Mozart effect" has been studied extensively, but has also been met with some cynicism. 

A 2001 study showed positive health effects associated with listening to classical music sonatas but left unanswered questions; suggesting the need for even more research. 

A 2010 study found premature babies rest and grow healthier when exposed to Mozart's sonatas

The challenge is to continue studying exactly what happens to the brain when we hear the music of Mozart. Is the "Mozart Effect" a real thing or do we simply feel better because we like classical music?Either way, it can't hurt to incoporate some relaxing music into your daily routine.

Can you eat square or heart shaped Japanese watermelon?

Have you ever wondered if Japanese square watermelon tastes good?  What about heart shaped watermelon? Are Japanese watermelons edible? 

According to a new report from EmaxHealth.com, the fruits are not tasty. Watermelon has many known health benefits, but when you mess with mother nature to make a cubed or heart shaped watermelon you lost taste.

Why is it done?

According to EmaxHealth reporter Tamar Najarian:
"...by the time it [square watermelon] is the proper shape, it has not been given the time needed to also mature. As such, one can buy a non-edible square watermelon for nearly $100 from posh upscale supermarkets and use it as decoration or gifts that could last up to a year or more."  In Najarian's opinion that makes square watermelons pretty useless, despite the fact that they're produced to make them easier to store.. 

You can even grow your own square watermelon,

Heart shaped watermelon tasty

If you want something different to give as a gift, you could offer heart…

to facilitate pregnancy.

Here's one simple lifestyle change you can make that helps sperm swim normally to reach the mark.  It  costs nothing and can even lead to better overall health

What if something as simple as eating a healthy diet could make a big difference
for improving  sperm motility? 
Even better…what if those little fellas like healthy food so much that
sperm begin swimming around normally in about one week?
Sperm quality changes quickly with a healthy diet
Some studies suggest it takes up to 74 days to get your sperm healthy.
But it seems it might not take that long at all. 
Two factors determine sperm quality: motility and sperm count.
A new study found that sperm motility improves after one week among study participants
who eliminated sugar from their diet.

was most noticeable that changed in the diet …
