Proverbs 18:22: "A merry heart does good, like medicine..."
"From a physical standpoint, we know that laughter conditions the heart muscle, exercises the lungs and diaphragm, work all the abdominal and thoracic muscles, boosts the immune system, and even increases adrenaline and blood flow to the brain.*"--William Fry, M.D., professor emeritus at Standford University Medical School and laughter researcher for 50 years.
Lee Merk, M.D., assistant professor of Family Medicine at Susan Samueli Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine at the College of Medicine at the University of Californis, Irvine, says "Laughter can also increase alertness, creativity and memory, increase pain tolerance, lower blood pressure, and improve respiration or ease of breathing...If I had come up with a medication that accomplished all that, I'd be on my way to Sweden to get a Nobel Prize.*"
7 Prescriptions for Good Health
1. Read a joke book. Learn a joke, and tell it to a family member or friend.
2. Watch a comedy movie.
3. If given a choice of recreational activities, pick something that makes you laugh.
4. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh. If your family and friends don't know how to laugh, teach them by your example.
5. Laugh whenever you can, and whenever it is appropriate.
6. You may even want to laugh when it isn't approprate--for instance, when you're in labor or ready for surgery. So what if the doctors think you're crazy? Just don't tell them we told you to do it!
7. Php 4:8: "For the rest, brothers, whatever is true, whatever honorable, whatever is right, whatever pure, whatever lovely, whatever of good report, if of any virtue, and if of any praise, think on these things."
According to mounting evidence, new studies "suggest that the natural forms of vitamin E supplements outperform the synthetics. The natural forms are more bioavailable, and are retained longer in body tissues to perform their beneficial functions. Also, even the previously acknowledged differences have been found to have been underestimated." (Consumers' Research Magazine, June, 1999, page 24) Yes, natural really is better!
For years, conventional wisdom has only recommended a bare minimum (RDA) of nutrients, in spite of the alarming rise of many degenerative diseases. However, Consumers' Research states: "Results of recent research suggest that the amount of vitamin E intake needed to offer adequate protection against these grave health problems may be far more than the amounts needed solely to prevent nutritional deficiency. For example, a number of studies suggest that increased vitamin E intake is associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular heart disease, arthritis, premature againg, cataracts, Alzheimer's disearse, and certain types of cancer. Also, increased vitamin E appears to enhance the immune system. However, higher amounts of vitamin E are required than can be obtained solely from foods."
