He said, “Research has shown that music can reduce anxiety in patients with heart diseases. It reduces anxiety and heals heartbreaks. It could lower blood pressure, but that doesn’t mean the person suffering from hypertension should neglect his medication and start listening to music alone.”

The cardiologist also described music as an additional therapy, which could lower the blood pressure. Listening to cool music, he added, releases a hormone called endormorphine, which improves the quality of the vascular health.

Statistics released by the World Health Organisation recently revealed that about 150,000 Nigerians died annually as a result of heart-related diseases. It was predicted that the number of deaths due to the ailment would rise to 23 million by the year 2030, if adequate measures were not taken to curtail it.

Meanwhile, a research presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress 2018 noted that listening to yoga music at bedtime is good for the heart.

The study author, Dr Naresh Sen, who is a Consultant Cardiologist at the HG SMS Hospital, Jaipur, India, said, “we use music therapy in our hospital and in this study, we showed that yoga music has a beneficial impact on heart rate variability before sleeping.”
