The secret of Laughter Yoga and Laughter Wellness is that our bodies are hardwired with some surprisingly powerful natural reactions to extended hearty laughter. It gives a good massage to the abdominal organs like the liver, kidney, pancreas, spleen and adrenal glands. As a result, nourishment and blood flow is increased and their functioning is improved. Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulating your liver, your heart, lungs and muscles, and increases the endorphins that are released by your brain.

For the most part, when you go and get medical treatment, a clinician is not necessarily going to tell you to take two aspirins and watch Laurel and Hardy, but the reality is that’s where we are and it’s more real than ever. There’s a real science to this. And it’s as real as taking a drug.Dr Lee Berk, Professor Of Medicine, Loma Linda University
