Laughing helps you heal11th March 2011
Experts from Leeds University have suggested that a good belly laugh can help heal leg ulcers.
Writing in the British Medical Journal, they say that the use of low-dose ultrasound for leg ulcers did nothing to speed up recovery and that stimulating blood flow back up the legs to the heart was better. As well as compression bandages and a support stocking coupled with advice on diet and exercise, having a laugh helped too because it gets the diaphragm moving and this plays a vital part in moving blood around the body.
