Instant Pick-Me-Up

Fibromyalgia Laughter

Laughter is the Best Medicine
This section was conceived with Fibro sufferers and the community in mind.  A major symptom of Fibromyalgia is depression.  It’s easy to get trapped in negative feelings when you don’t feel well.  Everyone has heard that “laughter is the best medicine”, and it’s not so far fetched.  Laughing releases endorphins into the brain.  Endorphines react with the opiate receptors in the brain, thus raising the threshold for pain.  Feeling good doesn’t get any more natural than that!   Additionally, laughing has been proven to boost the immune system, exercise your abs and reduce symptoms associated with Fibro (as mentioned, depression and pain) including tension, stress and headaches.  “Getting your laughs in” every day, may become an effective new motto for Fibromyalgia sufferers.  This page should make that easy to accomplish.   Also included are videos that are just plain amazing.   

Be sure to check out our compilation of inspirational videos (coming soon), as well.

  1. I think this Instant Pick-me-up is a wonderful idea.

    I do know of several people who claim that laughter therapy has been the main factor in their recovery from serious illnesses.

    And the laughter therapy they took part in was no more than watching comedy films.

    Let’s all enjoy a laugh and feel much better!

    • I’ve heard about people with cancer who surrounded themselves in humor during their treatments or even prior to receiving any treatment, and they recovered entirely. If our minds and emotions can cause us to sweat, vomit, produce tears, cause us to shake and result in other blatant physical reactions, why can’t it work to heal us as well? 🙂
