“Lucy…I’m hooome!” Yes, my computer is fixed…it works perfectly…in fact, even better than before! Yaaay! Oh, okay, actually, to be honest, my genius of a husband fixed it a couple of days ago, but I took some time off and had some fun with the family over the weekend. More on that tomorrow…(grin)…
Anyway, I just finished reading a fascinating article concerning the effect of laughter on various ailments, mainly allergies, written by Jacob Schor, a naturopathic doctor with a practice in Denver (I subscribe to his excellent newsletter). Click on this link to read it: http://tinyurl.com/yeawx43
I would like to add that, as we know, 1. myeloma cells proliferate like mad in the presence of stress hormones, (see my “myeloma and stress” page: http://tinyurl.com/ydxrc83), and 2. laughter is a well-known stress-reliever…it doesn’t take much to put…one and two together. I am so convinced of the healthful benefits of laughter that I have devoted an entire section of my blog to funny videos and jokes and other silly whatnots (just scroll down my Page list on the right until you reach the heading “Laughter and MM”).
I laugh a lot…but after reading this bit of news, I want to laugh even more! (…remember Norman Cousins and the Marx Brothers?)
