with yogic deep breathing, for a complete workout of wellness.Cancer patients are so focused on getting rid of the toxins in their body that they lose touch with their innate ability to heal. Studies have shown that a great way to access that part of your inner healing is to rediscover fun and play. Laughter Yoga and laughter in general:
- counters stress and fear by releasing chemicals that reduce stress within minutes.
- promotes a positive outlook when hearty laughter eases depression, especially when practiced within a group of peers.
- helps deal with pain when the brain releases endorphins. More than two hours of pain relief is provided by a typical laughter yoga session.
- oxygenates the body. Ongoing research shows a strong relationship between oxygen in our cells and the development of cancer. Just ten minutes of hearty laughter leaves the body and major organs super-oxygenized.
Laughter Yoga is also a new way for the family to reconnect with their loved one with cancer, on a level other than medical appointments and therapies. They learn to laugh together again. Our bodies dont know the difference between a fake laugh and a real one, so forcing yourself to laugh will help in reconnecting with your inner spirit, which may have been robbed from you because of this cancerous toxin.
