Would you like to take an approach to heart health care that requires fewer medical office visits, no special dietary or medication requirements and with no arduous daily exercise regimen? Would you also like a health care approach that costs zero dollars? If these questions make you smile, laugh you're on the right track according to the medical experts. The saying that laughter is the best medicine is more than just an old adage. Experts have rediscovered a secret found in the ancient text of Proverbs compiled by Solomon around 950 b.c. It says "a joyful heart is good medicine." A smile and laughter help you relax and recharge. They reduce stress and increase energy, and allow you to stay focused and accomplish more. Smiles and laughter can chase away distressing emotions. Behavioral scientists tell us that you can't feel anxious, angry, or sad when you're smiling and laughing. Researchers also tell us that a smile is contagious, and that laughter is infectious. Smiling and laughing helps your immune system to work better. There is evidence that suggests you can prevent the flu and colds by smiling. Since laughter and smiles protect you from the damaging cardiovascular effects of stress. The old saying that 'laughter is the best medicine,' definitely appears to be true when it comes to protecting your heart.
This medicine offers unlimited possibilities, and has the potential to save several millions of dollars annually in health care costs. Many medical experts endorse this as good medicine and have supportive data that confirms a mind-body connection. These published articles show that there is an absolute link between anger and hostility and their resultant hypertensive and coronary artery disease effects. Anger seems to increase blood pressure, raise cholesterol, and increase the risk of coronary heart disease. However, a smile and laughter can counter the negative effects of anger and hostility on your heart's health. When you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure.
Amazingly, a smile does nothing for anybody until it is given away. It is one of the best things in life and it's free. It is God's gift to his image bearers. Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together these three make us feel good. These endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being. Both smiles and laughter help to protect your hearts against a heart attack by improving the function of blood vessels and increasing blood flow. The mind-body connection is real. Smiling is a natural drug, and joyful heart is not only good medicine, but offers everyone affordable health care. Remember you can't overdose or become addicted to this medicine and it's free. Try it and prove it your for yourself. Your heart will thank you.
