According to Dr. Madan Kataria in India, laughing is the best medicine. He believed this so much that he is the founder of Laughing Club with over 600 establishments throughout India. People gather together to laugh for 15 to 20 minutes and the benefits seem endless. Watch this video to see what they think. .
These people in India aren’t the only people that believe this; it’s a worldwide phenomenon. It’s a common phrase that most people have heard before and it seems both true and fictional at the same time. Of course laughter can’t fix a bad appendix or remove cancer, but it does have its benefits. According to the website there are many different benefits. For instance, this website quotes laughter to have physical, health, and social benefits ranging from increased immunity, decreased stress and pain levels, strengthened relationships, and the prevention of heart disease while bringing more zest and happiness into one’s life. Perhaps the best part of laughter is that it is free, fun, and always available. To all of you who are not swayed by this argument, laughter promotes better overall health and not to specific parts of the body. Most people love having a good laughter because it brings them closer to their loved ones and also brings quality to their lives. So although laughter will never be credited for solving the most different of medical mysteries, it can be credited for getting you through your day which contributes to your overall health.
