Laughter, One of the Best Medicines!
patients, doctors and health care professionals are finding that laughter may indeed be the best medicine.
The benefits of humor and laughter to the body have been studied and have definitely been proven advantageous as a healing therapy.
The scientific evidence regarding the effectiveness of humor to the body has been overwhelming. Published studies have shown that laughter lowers blood pressure, reduces stress hormones, increases muscle flexion, and boosts the immune system by raising the levels of infection fighting T-cells, disease fighting proteins called Gamma-interferon and B-cells, which produce disease destroying antibodies. Endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkiller are also released with laughter. Overall, laughter produces a general sense of well-being.
Joyful laughter is eustress – stress that is deemed healthful or giving a feeling of fulfillment. It empties the lungs of more air than it takes in, resulting in a cleansing effect – similar to deep breathing. This is especially helpful to people who suffer from emphysema and other respiratory ailments.
Due to the exponential discoveries with laughter and humor therapy, hospitals are incorporating laughter therapy programs into their therapeutic regimens. In some foreign countries they even have laughing clubs, where participants gather in the early morning for the sole purpose of laughing. Some clubs have even begun in the US.
Humor and laughter is advantageous to the body and health in general, but the greatest benefit of laughter is that it is free and has no negatives side effects to the body.
So, create some internal jogging and laugh yourself healthy.
