Optimal Wellness: A Laughing Matter

Your doctor at Chiropractic for Life focuses on teaching patients all-natural approaches to disease prevention and wellness.  One such approach is incorporating a daily dose of laughter into your life.  Not only is a good case of the giggles a lot of fun, scientific research shows that laughing has powerful healing properties.  Research also suggests that a sound sense of humour may prevent health problems from occurring in the first place.

Investigation into laughter’s healing properties has lead researchers and medical professionals to coin a new term:  laughter therapy.  While this moniker might sound silly, it is based on solid scientific evidence proving that laughter is indeed therapeutic.

Your doctor at Chiropractic for Life promotes laughter as an all-natural pain reliever.  Countless studies show that a good chuckle bolsters pain tolerance by escalating the release of endorphins:  the body’s “feel good” hormones.  And, laughter simultaneously suppresses production of the stress hormones cortisol and adrenalin.

Best of all, its only side effect is a sense of well-being and contentment.  And that’s important to your doctor at Chiropractic for Life, who believes in addressing the underlying causes of disease and illness — not merely masking symptoms with potentially deadly drugs.Dr. Barbara Smith
