Laughter improves lung capacity and oxygen levels in the blood and thus reducing complaints of asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory complications. The increased level of endorphins reduces the frequency and intensity of arthritic pain and muscular spasms. It is also known to help with insomnia, migraines, allergies, and ulcers.
Laughter provides a real aerobic workout for the diaphragm and the abdominal, intercostal, respiratory and facial muscles.
Laughter switches on all that stress switches off. It rejuvenates the circulation in the lymphatic system and boosts the immune system. It increases the production of T cells, B cells, immunoglobulins and NK cells – all important in fighting viral infection, sickness and cancer. The digestive and sexual systems, which are also turned off by stress, are also turned on and boosted by laughing.
