Being cheerful will not only make you feel better mentally but can also help you physically. Laughing for example, helps release chemicals in your brain that makes a person physically feel well. These chemicals are called endorphins and when released they help increase pain resistance in the body (Gorman, James).Who needs to pay for antidepressants when we can already produce our own happiness just by turning on the television and watching a comedic movie of our choice? In the same way, complementary and alternative medicine specialized practitioners find ways in which to restore health by using safe and natural remedies to treat all aspects, physical and mental, of their patient. Many doctors and patients may not recognize the benefits of alternative medicine, but the increase in their popularity is indisputable.
