Laughter for the Health of It: “In Chinese Medicine, Laughter is the synergistic or balanced aspect of a healthy spirit; enriching life with laughter, feeling the opening of compassionate heart and an increased sense of well-being. You will find yourself, experiencing the safety to laugh, laughing easily and often and promoting laughter in the world.” Doreen Bakstad
“Deep breathing techniques increase oxygen to the cells and are the most important factors in living a disease free and energetic life. When cells get enough oxygen, cancer will not and cannot occur.” Dr. Otto Warburg biochemist [two time Medical Nobel Peace Prize recipient for cancer research]
“As an exercise, laughing must come from the belly; diaphragm laughter. It must be sustained for 15 – 20 minutes in order to bring about physiological and biochemical changes.” Emotions & Your Health by Emrika Padus
“Laughter Exercises don’t need jokes or even a sense of humour and is never a result of ridicule. Warm up exercises help people feel less self-conscious about their contrived laughter, in order to get to diaphragm laughter. In a group, when people maintain eye contact during Laughter Exercises, the laughter becomes contagious and easily transforms into health benefits while meeting people’s need for community connection.
When you laugh, you exhale longer than you inhale. Stale oxygen from lungs is cleared out, making room for more fresh oxygen from deep breaths. Increasing oxygen by 25%, optimizes brain functioning. Also, deep breathing from the diaphragm activates the parasympathetic aspect of the autonomic nervous system, related to relaxation body functions.
Timewise, Laughter Exercises are economical for positively affecting emotional states, reducing stress and increasing pain thresholds by releasing endorphins, a group of naturally occurring peptide hormones in the brain. As a result, people often feel a sense of well being, as well as happiness, following Laughter Exercises. This contentment can build into a lifestyle approach with ongoing practice.”
