Yes, not very direct, but does have an effect on recovery time.It gives positive feedback, makes you more positive and more optimistic. In addition, the CliniClowns prevent fear of the doctor and the hospital. In the long term, the care-avoiding behavior occurs.
It’s like good food, not measurable, but it turns out to have a substantial effect.Why is good food with the same nutritional value better than tasteless food? Patients actually eat it, in the same way laughter and humor are important in the treatment. It can get the sharp edges of a nasty treatment, this increases the compliance. If you need to go to the hospital every week for a chemo, after which you are sick for 5 days, it helps if you can laugh and complain about the side effects on a weekly basis with the same group of patients.

Not in medical science.There is no laughter therapy as an official approved treatment method with protocols and proven favourable outcomes.
Maarrr…. a doctor with humor cures better than a grumpy, steering Doctor Who invests little in human contact.The Doctor as a medicine! The investigations in this area have long been concluded and the conclusion is unequivocal that a physician with good skills in the field of communication, where humor is one of them, has a higher return on the quality of life of the patient than the counterpart Its.
Humor is a way to relativate heavy subjects and helps to reduce fears.
I am totally not in medicine.However, when I go off on the many scientifically substantiated articles that describe what a particular effect has laughed. It seems to me certainly important to pay more attention to the emotional well-being of the patients, more laughing!
Laughter deserves a place in medicine, but as complement an addition to traditional treatment methods.Certainly not as a replacement.
“Laughter therapy”?Don’t really believe in it.
But laughing is good for a human being, healthy and sick, and someone with a smile is helping, all the more so doctors often see people who are sick, anxious, unsure.
I read a biography a while back.In one episode, it was about a kind of sanatorium in the 19th century for unhealable sick. For the staff and the sick it was forbidden to speak about diseases and certainly about their own illness. There was a very cheerful mood in that sanatorium and there was very much and good thoughts about the reconditions of life. The people died in peace and the remains who had to go for a while lived in peace with the approaching death.
Within psychology it is (of course) investigated.There is even a genuine humorlab. Google further on “Sybe box Laughing” or “Sybe box Humor”.
Laughter is fun, but it’s about why you laugh in my eyes.What helped me and fellow revalidants especially is to find pleasure. Sometimes that is with a laugh, other times with concentration, frustration and euphoria. Sometimes it is nice to be able to phrase negative emotions as playful as possible under the same co-revalidants. Because the emotion/pain is recognizable, you can laugh… I think comedy works so now that I write it down so… But good..
Very healthy in all that laugh.Better than all medical blabla
