I believe laughter is the best medicine. When I get down (we all do) I surround myself with friends and we get silly, giddy and have some good old belly laughs. It's truly amazing how much better you feel after laughing. Your brain will release endorphins when you laugh. You have a general all over good feeling no matter what your problems have been. Through the years I have learned to poke fun at myself and some accidental things that may happen in my life (or even hard times) and make other people laugh and it also doesn't make me feel that my problems are all that difficult in comparison to some other poor souls out there.
yes, i do believe that laughter is the best medicine for stress and when you are ill. Lighten up the low spirit and cast away your woes for a while even though they still exist.
Yes Laughter is good for a short term solution to take your mind off of problems but a long term solution is true happiness. Happiness is achieved simply by getting more than you expected in your life. A better than expected meeting, job, spouse and children or whatever part of life you wish to apply it to.
True happiness is a result of not having your expectations exceed your ability to obtain. For instance "I want a Porche but I got a Chevy" will always bring anxiety but "I want a used car and I was able to buy a new one" brings happiness.
It depends on how literal the question is. Yes, laughter seems to make everything better, brighter and more enjoyable. However, if a person is suffering from some kind of physical ailment - maybe an antibiotic with a side of laughter would be in order:-)
Yes. Laughter is not only medicine for physical illness but also for the soul and for life as a whole...it has a lot of positive chain reactions, it is contagious and it helps make one's life beautiful.
I read something funny today that I thought I would share " laughter is the best medicine unless you are laughing for no reason, then you DO need medicine! " that made me laugh!
I agree Jynzly - laughter is definitely contagious. And that is funny Aussie! (And true).
'Laughter' gives mental and physical relax to you which no other medicine can give. A total relax to the body!
'LAUGHING' Exercise is there to treat some type of stress and depression. If you utilize few minute to see/read articles which make laughing, will give new courage to you.
Thanks for a relaxed question!
Laughter gives a great relief from tension, it takes your mind off of all the things that have built up inside you. Also, it uses less muscles than crying does, so it's less stressful.
It can't hurt. But for me exersize and sunshine usually do the trick just as well,
I wanted to answer your question sarcastically and say that my aunt who recently died from cancer laughed all the way to her deathbed...
But then I thought some more about your question and thought that maybe, because she was an inherently happy person that brought sunshine and laughter into many lives, she lived 3 years longer than the doctors initially said she would.
So, I'm with @duffsmom on this and think her advice is fantastic. Take your meds, but with smile if you can still manage it
I do believe 100 percent it is the best medicine of anything whether you feel bad or financial matters. When one laughs, there is a great feeling of relief, and through this the brain can work well on solving any problems. Most of the time it present solutions in the form of a hunch or an inspiration, or perhaps an idea from somebody else.
Try to observe, majority of happy people are more blessed than those who always feel lonely.
'A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones"
Laughter: Lowers blood pressure, Increases vascular blood flow and oxygenation of the blood, Reduces certain stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, Increases the response of tumor and disease-killing cells such as gamma-interferon and t-cells, defends against respiratory infections and even reduces the frequency of colds by immunoglobulon in the saliva, increases memory and learning.
Humor works quickly. Less than half-second after exposure to something funny, an electrical wave moves through the higher brain functions of the cerebral cortex. The left hemisphere analyzes the words and structures of the joke; The right hemisphere "gets" the joke; the visual sensory (if you SAW something funny) area of the occipital lobe creates images; the limbic (emotional ) system makes you happier; and the motor sections make you smile or laugh.
Yes it is the best medicine. It helps you to be at ease with the situation, makes you calm. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh.
Meh, cigarettes for me lol (^_^) but seriously, a good chuckle every now and then, combined with a ciggie works wonders!
I personally think so! Well, that's not true. If you have a broken rib....laughter may not be the best medicine. (Wink,wink)
However, I think genuine laughter is way better than a hand full of Percocet. (Which may also make you laugh)
Besides there are hard black and white facts about the health benefits and power of laughter. Furthermore, laughter isn't just a stress releiver, it's a way to bond with loved ones, a element of distraction, source of endorphins.
Let's just say this, if laughter was illegal.....I'd buy an ounce of it at a time from a shady looking guy on an street corner. So yes, I am a big believer in laughter.
Yes in a way. Whenever my children are having problems in school, I will share with them a joke or watch TV series for Gags or Just for a laugh.
It clears their heads and feeling much better.
I think it IS the best medicine! I love how it makes you feel after having a good laugh. Thats why I enjoy comedy movies, good jokes, funny video clips, even funny photos can make me laugh. Sometimes I laugh so hard, I get wheezy and even cry!
yes Laughter can cure anything. when You are with your love one. and happy u forgot everything
I've always heard that lots of B6 and D-3 vitamins was the best medicine. Same as with sunshine and getting your D-3 that way. But yes, laughter helps. Anything that releases endorphins in the brain should be good for the body. (Minus the drug use part)
From a medical standpoint laughing releases endorphins which are natural painkiller so if someone is suffering physical pain laughter may help. If a person is emotionally down, laughter can hopefully help to elevate mood. I believe laughter is a good part of an overall care plan. It is good for the soul.
Yes, and I'll tell you why.
I had testicular entitilitis for many years and I was prescribed all kinds of various experimental drugs, all to no effect.
Then, about a month ago, my doctor, a practitioner of old world hoodoo and also a meth addict, told me about Laughter. He claimed that laughter would cure my entitilitis. He also believed that chimpanzees were aliens and they were storing "space eggs" (?) inside his rectum at night, so I took this with a grain of salt.
I decided to give laughter a try, so I got onto hubpages and wrote a few gut-busting articles that at least made me laugh.
Now, my testicular entitilitis is all cleared up and I am free to start filming my bestiality sex videos again!
Yes, to the extent that when a friend of mine had a very serious problem (a blood clot in her arm that the doctors worried would travel to her heart), we actually got told to quiet down by a nurse because we were laughing "too much" and obviously didn't understand the seriousness of the situation. We did. But sitting around and worrying would have only made it worse, and if we could sit there and laugh, at least we were dealing with it. Jokes and illness go hand in hand in that if you can joke about it, it never seems as bad.

Do you believe manogomy is possible in relationships?Just wondering if any of you really believe in monagamous relationships or is one or the other looking over the fence thinking the grass may be greener on the other side(metaphorically speaking)?Can there ever be true happiness with only one...
