Lots of dinner parties coming up this time of the year. Are you properly stocked up?

Corona Virus? -- We need to laugh more! Laughter really IS Medicine!

Physicians and researchers have long known that stress weakens the immune system. No immune system NO health. Doc can back me up here.

Since the mid '80's they have been studying the effects of both sense of humor and laughter itself on the immune system. The results are pretty interesting. Laughter first and foremost lessens stress levels. Stress itself induces the old ancient "fight or flight" response. The body gets ready for battle. Blood flow is directed to the extremities, to the heart and lungs and away from the gut. That is why people who are under stress often throw up. Heart rates and blood pressure go up. Breathing becomes more rapid, muscles all become tensed up -ready for action. Even bio-chemically our make up changes due to changes in hormone levels. Our immune system starts to shut down. You have no need for immunity if you can't survive the lion attack.

The less you are stressed the more the body functions as it should. Digestion is better. Aches and pains lessen and the immune system is able to function and maybe even gets a boost... just from a LACK of stress.

We change physiologically also when we laugh. We stretch muscles throughout our face and body, our pulse and blood pressure go up, and we breathe faster, sending more oxygen to our tissues, but unlike in the fight or flight response that increased blood flow does NOT get directed to your fists and feet. It pulses all around the body, doing all of the jobs blood is supposed to do. Taking healing oxygen to the tissues and removing waste at a cellular level. The lymphatic system, which functions in many ways like the circulatory system becomes more free flowing as well. Blood sugar levels tend to be lower. Peaks and valleys become more of a plane.

One study of 19 people with diabetes looked at the effects of laughter on blood sugar levels. After eating, the group attended a tedious lecture. On the next day, the group ate the same meal and then watched a comedy. After the comedy, the group had lower blood sugar levels than they did after the lecture.

Immune response. Increased stress is associated with decreased immune system response, says Provine. Some studies have shown that the ability to use humor may raise the level of infection-fighting antibodies in the body and boost the levels of immune cells!

How do YOU sleep when you are under stress? If you are anything like me... you don't. I spend stress nights flipping and flopping in bed. Mind racing, feet kicking, teeth gritted and even fists clinched. I am up and down 15 times a night to pee. My body is horizontal and my eyes are closed, but that is NOT sleep.

Norman Cousin's wrote a memoir called Anatomy of an Illness. http://www.downloads.imune.net/medicalb ... ousins.pdf Cousins, who was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis, a painful spine condition, found that a diet of comedies, like Marx Brothers films and episodes of Candid Camera, helped him feel better. He said that ten minutes of laughter allowed him two hours of pain-free sleep.

When you laugh, you relax! When you are comfortable and relaxed you sleep. When you sleep your body on a cellular scale can repair itself. Your mind goes on pleasant journeys in dreamland. Having a happy dream about going fishing with friends, or a walk on a sunny meadow just DO NOT happen when you go to bed stressed and with your brain running crazy. Nope those are the nights you wake up in a cold sweat because that lion was just about ready to POUNCE!


SO... I hear by declare THIS THREAD ACTIVATED! Let's use it to share our best jokes. Tell funny stories of YOUR life. Post the funniest things you have seen on line lately. Lets all sit AT HOME with our washed hands and plenty of fresh water in our cup and make each other laugh until we fall out of our chairs!

Doctor's orders.

A panda walks into a bar... He eats all of the nuts and pretzels on the counter and all of the pickled eggs. Then he whips out a pistol and starts shooting at the ceiling until he runs out of bullets. Finally he throws his gun on the ground and starts towards the door.

"Hey!" shouts the bartender. "What are you doing!?"

"I am a PANDA!" shouts the panda. "Google it."

Sure enough ... Panda - “A tree-climbing mammal with distinct black-and-white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves.”

A cowboy walks into a bar... His hat is made of brown wrapping paper, his shirt and vest are made of waxed paper, and his chaps, pants, and boots are made of tissue paper. He orders a beer.

In short order the sheriff is called to come and arrest him... for rustling.
