Laughter Therapy- The amazing benefits of laughter therapy

I’ve been focusing so much on the keto diet and quite frankly, I need a break. So, we’re going to do a bit of laughter therapy this week. I must admit, I’m cheating on my posts a bit both today and through out the week. Some of the posts, such as this one, the post later today, and a few others throughout the week are reposts of earlier articles. If you’re new to my page, this is good information for you and if you’ve seen these before, it’s a good reminder. Laughter therapy is seriously healthy and a real way to help people heal. Below, you’ll find a video on the benefits of laughter therapy and a bonus video a “Skype Laughter Chain” which is SO funny…it’s a must watch. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and have a great week guys. HAVE FUN AND LAUGH…A LOT!

Original article

I’m beginning a section in school which discusses holistic stress management, which is based on ancient wisdom in which “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”   These holistic techniques are based on the knowledge passed down through shamans, sages, mystics and healers from all over the world. from all times and all ages.

Ask any one of these wise people what makes us who we are? What makes us whole? Everyone of them would answer “MIND, BODY, SPIRIT, and EMOTIONS”. Instead of treating just the symptoms, the whole being is treated.We are taught, that to be truly healthy, requires a balance of these four elements. Holistic nutrition, holistic stress management and holistic health are all part of the equation, which is why I stress all these areas in the development of my holistic wellness platform.

This week, each morning, I’ll share one video with a stress management technique, which will be easy, and quick. I hope you enjoy these tips and find them useful.

Until next time…Namaste my friends.

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
