Laughter is Good Medicine

Isn’t life just wonderful?  You may agree and others may not agree so fast. No matter what is happening in your life now, we live with the hope that things will turn for the better. Many times – they do.

Laughter is so important. I am not talking about a smile here and there, but pure joy and laughter.  When was the last time you laughed so hard that tears started flowing down your face. Remember that time? I bet you can’t even remember what it was for – but you sure do remember the scene. Was it really that long ago?  I want you to know that you have the same joy within you right now. Let’s bring that joy back to your everyday life and being!

They say laughter is the best remedy to all illness.

Dr. Norman Cousins fended off a life threatening disease using his own regimen of nutritional and emotional support system as opposed to traditional methods of treatment. Cousins is often described as “the man who laughed his way to health!”

For every minute of laughter, you produce somewhere around $10,000 worth of healthy body chemistry.

Laughter operates on at least three different levels. They are the biophysical, the biochemical, and the bioenergetic levels.

Laughter moves lymph and oxygenates your organs at the biophysical level. It moves lymph fluid around your body simply by the convulsions you experience during the process of laughing, so it boosts immune system function and helps clear out old, dead waste products from organs and tissues.

Laughter increases oxygenation of your body at both the cellular and organ level. By laughing, you intake vast amounts of oxygen in gulps.

It’s also interesting to note that cancer cells are destroyed in the presence of oxygen. In fact, many parasites and bacteria don’t survive well in the presence of oxygen, and to the extent that you can circulate extra oxygen throughout your body, you can help prevent, or in some cases treat, these diseases.

Laughing also boosts circulation. The harder you laugh, the greater this effect. If you can find a way to put yourself into a state of rolling, outrageous laughter, you’re going to get a fantastic physical workout from it! Have you ever laughed so hard that your stomach hurt and your facial muscles were exhausted? That’s some serious exercise, and it’s the kind of exercise in which we should all engage on a regular basis.

We are here to help you move all blocks and stressors and help you create more joy, laughter and overall wellness in your life!
