Increasing the production of salivary immunoglobulin A, which defends
against infectious organisms that enter through the respiratory tract.
Aerobic effects that increased the body’s ability to utilize oxygen (Cousins called laughing “internal jogging” and it has been estimated that laughing 100 times is equal to 10 minutes on a rowing machine or
15 minutes on an exercise bike.)
A rapid ability to disregard aches and pains or to perceive them as less
severe (Children watching funny videos while undergoing painful procedures required less pain medication during as well as after the procedure. Patients who were told hilarious one-liners following surgery also had reduced requirements for pain drugs compared to controls.)
I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
