Prescribing a cultural cure for depression

Drop file here to send
Laughter may be the best medicine but culture works wonders for health as well. That’s the thinking driving a new initiative in Montreal, Canada, where doctors will be able to prescribe free art museum visits to patients with a range of ailments, from depression to diabetes to chronic illnesses.

Gosh. So we are prescribing living, playing and enjoying nature rather than popping pills and propping up the pharmaceutical industry. Common sense on prescription. Amen.

So sad that we have reached a point where we need to be told to do these everyday activities, but a good acknowledgement of the social determinants of health and social model being as important as biomedicine.

More community activities and recreational classes which are accessible locally for elders would be helpful too. Chi Gung, Tai Chi, Yoga, Circle Dance, Art and Craft classes. Investment in these and other activities could help prevent Alzheimers and obesity in an increasingly aging population.

Indoor and outdoor play are totally different, let's have our kids experience and develop a well rounded playtime.

The capacity to heal is right in front of us, it is inside us when we experience the wonders of the outside universe. Beauty brings joy, laughter brings joy, care brings joy. This joy brings the full power of love and wonder. How we process the outside world and perceive all that is around us is how healthy we are. The beauty of the world heals us, it is the meditation to make us healthy.

Here doctors can’t prescribe that. They will think the doctors are crazy. I can’t believe that the US kids need to play more. I hardly see them study.
