Welcome to Music 4 Life® Radio where we power your potential and build mental fitness with music to mediate the life of your senses with the life of your Spirit. What does that mean? Plug in to yourself differently with music at the core. When you push play on music you find out how the music is really playing you, messing with [powerfully influencing] your mental fitness, your physical senses and your Spirit.

Licensed music therapist Judith Pinkerton takes you on a journey during July's national Freedom month, exploring music's capability of mitigating anxiety, anger, depression and grief, interviewing people across the country. Today she tackles a really tough story talking to Kassandra Uehling and her journey through many rehabilitations, resulting in finally being freed from the emotionally negative effects of trauma that started her roller coaster addictions. The treatment that freed her? Music 4 Life's Music Medicine protocol. Listen to her story that leads up to Judith playing violin at her wedding this month.

Today's music choices are explored to understand how we use music to stay positively engaged in the game when trauma hits. Find our music recommendations and Judith's commentary at Music4LifeBLOG
