Dr. Madan Katariya from Mumbai, India, makes his patients laugh to the point of exhaustion at his appointments. And this is not because he prescribes medicines that are impossible to buy or praises the latest medical reforms – Kataria treats and heals with laughter
Indian doctor Madan Kataria is known not only in India, but also far beyond its borders. He is not only a good specialist in the field of medicine, but also the president of the International Association of Laughter Yoga. Yes, there is such a direction, more precisely, it appeared relatively recently, thanks to Kataria.
The yogi doctor treats people with laughter, teaches them a healthy lifestyle and a positive attitude to the world around them, but he earns, and not bad. Still, there are plenty of patients who want to get an appointment with a cheerful guru, and many come from far away.
Dr. Kataria believes that laughter is one of the essential attributes of a healthy person. Laughing, people not only get rid of stress, but also enrich the body with oxygen, strengthen the immune system and develop certain muscle groups.
In one of his videos, the doctor talks about laughter like this:
Yes, about training your muscles with laughter. Of course, you can not get a mountain of muscles like Schwarzenegger, laughing according to the method of Kataria, but to strengthen them in this way and get a relief press is quite possible. Here is one of the most effective exercises for such a workout:
• Inhale deeply through your nose • * Inflate your stomach as much as you can; • Hold your breath • * Count to ten; • Exhale and laugh at the same time; • Contract your stomach as much as possible so that all the air comes out of your lungs; • Take a deep, calm breath.
This exercise should be repeated several times in a row, preferably until you feel tired abdominal muscles. This is an excellent combination of breathing yoga and physical activity, which improves blood oxygen saturation, increases lung volume and trains the heart.
Therapeutic laughter involves the diaphragm, all the abdominal muscles without exception, and even a little back muscle. To enhance the effect, you can bend and jump while laughing. Perhaps this will help to improve the health of those present nearby, because it is quite difficult to look at these classes without laughing.
Doctor of Biological Sciences and, oddly enough, part-time comedian Helen Pilcher claims that with the help of laughter, you can even lose weight. Unrestrained laughter can burn up to 120 calories per hour, which is comparable to walking at a moderate pace. Laughter with the connection of the abdominal muscles gets rid of 100 calories per hour, and a simple laugh-from 20 calories.
Of course, like any other therapy, therapeutic laughter has its own contraindications. It is not recommended to laugh until you drop to those who have serious problems with the heart and respiratory system, hernia, including intervertebral, and people who have recently undergone surgery. Pregnant women should also be careful.
