Laughing moms make healthier milk

Laughing moms make healthier milk


Did you know ... We all know that laughter is contagious, but there is more to that saying than you may think. According to a study published by PubMed (June 2007), mothers who laughed prior to breastfeeding (even several hours before) produced higher levels of melatonin. Not only does melatonin assist in relaxation, but it also helps in lessening the symptoms of eczema and the allergic reactions to dust mites and latex. (dust mites are everywhere!)


Laughing moms make healthier milk

Of course, laughing is just as healthy for mom as it is for baby. Dr. Lee Berk and Dr. Stanley Tan of Loma Linda University in California concluded from their many studies that laughter is truly the best medicine.


Research indicates that a good guffaw simulates the immune system and produces the following immediate results:


  1. An increase in the number and activity level of natural killer cells that attack viral infected cells and even some types of cancer and tumor cells.
  2. An increase in activated T cells
  3. An increase in the immunoglobulin A, the antibody that fights upper respiratory infections
  4. An increase in gamma interferon which assists in increased immune function


Wouldn't it be great if everyone "tuned in" to they golden key of laughter as the best medicine? Ah, what a happier and healthier world it would be.


Turn On your senses ... Live a Fit Life!
