Music Therapy Improving Alzheimers And Cancer Care

Filed under: HealthCancer

Medical marijuana isn't the only alternative treatment helping cancer patients!

A new study has found that music can help ease pain and comfort patients in critical care suffering from several diseases.

Music therapy is being prescribed to leukemia patients to help them relax through chemo therapy treatments, while also improving the quality of care for Alzheimer's patients.

It's nothing new either! We've been doing it for years in the U.S.! Check out the full report above!

Seth Rogen And Fiance Share Personal Struggle With Alzheimer's Disease

Filed under: Sad SadSeth RogenHealthAgingFamily

This is SO sad!

Seth Rogen's mother-in-law has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He and his fiance, Lauren Miller, sat down with Larry King to discuss the devastating disease for CNN's Unthinkable: The Alzheimer's Epidemic, which airs this Sunday at 8 p.m. eastern time.

Although Alzheimer's is typically thought to affect primarily "old people", Seth brings to light that the devestating effects of the disease can begin earlier than we all thought.

Lauren's mother was diagnosed at just 55-years-old and has luckily survived so far, but was forced to retire early from her teaching job.

Seth says even though he met Lauren before her mother's official diagnosis, he could notice a "drastic difference" within the first few times he met her, explaining:

"Honestly, her abilitiy to verbalize things was the thing that I noticed that was most affected. Her ability to, literally, access words was really affected by it."

When Larry asked Lauren if she was angry about her mother's condition, she answered:

"Very. It's pretty unfair, but I think the things that make me angry are that, unfortunately, this disease gets very little attention."

So true, Lauren! We hope that that this television special and your words can help bring more attention to the disease, which may one day lead to a cure.
