Is Laughter The Best Medicine?

Did you know that laughing can relax both the body and the mind, reduce stress, lower blood pressure, decrease pain levels and even help reduce the risk of heart disease!


Studies have shown that laughter can replicate the effects of light exercise; reducing blood pressure, increasing blood flow and aiding the immune system!

Laughing produces endorphins; ‘feel good’ chemicals which act as natural pain killers, stress relievers, mood lifters and muscle relaxers!

High levels of stress are linked to heart disease and other autoimmune diseases; regular laughter can lower the production of stress hormones (cortisol, epinephrine and dopamine), again reducing blood pressure whilst enhancing the production of immune cells and infection fighting anti-bodies!
