Laughter is infectious and is good for one’s health. These days laughter therapy is widely followed in many hospitals. But there is no concrete evidence that laughter can cure cancer. It is used in many patients for increasing their abilities to reduce stress and improves a person’s quality of life.
Laughter has a lot of credits;
Promoting relaxation
Improving sleep
Strengthening social bonds
Improving overall attitude
Producing a general sense of well-being
Laughter provides many physical benefits such as:
Boosting the immune system
enhancing oxygen intake
Stimulating the heart and lungs
Relaxing muscles
Easing digestion
Relieving pain
Improving blood pressure
Improving mental functions
Releasing endorphins
There is no evidence of laughter therapy that can cure cancer but definitely help patients to cope better with their pain. It provides enhanced well-being and improves immune function in the body. Stress is a main cause of detrimental effects to physical and mental health and laughter is one way to fight it off. Laughter is the best medicine in stressful times of cancer survival.
