Wellness Story

No Where, Now Here

It was during the year of 1950. A wine boat was departuring from Scotland to Portugal, when a cabin crew went inside the freezer for a departure check. However, another sailor came and locked the door without checking for anyone inside. The sailor inside the freezer yelled and banged on the door with all his might, but no one was able to hear him. And a few days after, the boat arrived at Lisbon Harbor. When the crew finally opened the freezer door, the sailor was already dead. And when they saw the small words he had written on the wall, they immediately knew how he had died. He had frozen to death. The man had written on the wall how he had felt as he died. But what was even more startling was the fact that the freezer had not even been running. Even the temperature was all but uncomfortable at approximately 19 degrees Celsius.

What had killed the man was not the freezing temperature but his own imagination. So then what are the factors that lead to the death of our souls and of our lives? Kierkegaard says that the disease, which leads to death, is despair. Although Kierkegaard’s explanation of the disease, which leads to death, was a religious concept that describes the despair which comes from sin, in reality, the factor that causes death in our lives is worry.

The Art Story with Healing: Healing through the Pine Tree

One day at the artist Lim, Ki-Man’s Jong Ro atelier in the summer of 2005, flocks of birds found their way into the artist’s atelier. As they flew in and all sat on the art of the artist’s pine tree picture. This similarly happened in Shin Ra Dynasty to an artist name Sol Geu whose picture on the wall of Hwang Ryong Sa and flock of birds flew to his picture. This incident became a famous legendary tale. However, for it to happen in modern era was unheard of up until 2005, when it happened to the artist Lim, Ki-Man. It became a sensational news in Korea and catapulted the artist, Lim, Ki-Man into an overnight sensation. He struggled to keep the birds out his atelier; but birds kept finding their way back to the Pine Trees. By observing the birds and their full effort to sit on a picture of pine trees triggered some minds that an art can be used as a therapeutic too. In 2010, from his first exhibit, this picture was sold to Japan which eventually ended up in a living room wall of a cancer patient. He felt that watching this art daily, gave him energy and felt that he was getting well psychologically. In Sri Raka, the royal family recognized the heeling power of this picture and purchased two pictures from the artist Lim. The artist Lim, Ki-Man has a unique way of using his brush to draw which makes his arts more realistic with eye piercing contrast and unprecedented composition which makes his art virtually impossible to mimic. His art gives people energy to their souls. There is a famous quote “Art is created by God to console people” Chad Walsh once said “ the duty of an artist is to assist God to console people.”

Wellness Music

Music Therapy for Health and Wellness

(Source: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/natural-standard/201306/music-therapy-health-and-wellness)

Being a pharmacist, you may think I would always suggest a bottle of something for what ails you. However, first and foremost, I believe in the “do no harm” motto when it comes to healthcare. To me, that means to first try the least invasive route to feeling your best as possible, like a stress-preventing measure, special diet, or exercise program before popping a “magic pill.” Lifestyle changes can help prevent adverse effects and interactions associated with some drugs, herbs, and supplements. It may be a cost-effective and comparatively safe addition to your health and wellness regimen. “Do no harm” to your pocketbook as well.

For most people, music is an important part of daily life. Some rely on music to get them through the morning commute, while others turn up a favorite playlist to stay pumped during a workout. Many folks even have the stereo on when they’re cooking a meal, taking a shower, or folding the laundry.

Music is often linked to mood. A certain song can make us feel happy, sad, energetic, or relaxed. Because music can have such an impact on a person’s mindset and well-being, it should come as no surprise that music therapy has been studied for use in managing numerous medical conditions.
