Laughter as a medicine section is filled with canker sore remedies, maybe that is punch line to make us laugh. I had trouble laughing until I had kids and then the dams busted open. I also started to read a lot of books after I had kids. I would go to the library because my spouse loves to read. He always read books to the kids and his parent's home was filled with shelves full of books. My dentist always told me I should do stand up comedy and I told him if I need to be this stressed out to be funny, I don't think that would be good for my health. I am not that funny. I am more of a realist. Living in a lie is not really living for me. Anyway. Back to the library. I saw this book, Close encounters of the God kind. I read that book and it changed what I thought about a lot of things. This clip is by the author, nothing about his encounter but his sense of humor. I think you will laugh and maybe go to youtube and watch his testimony on his trip to heaven in 88.
The interviewer asked an old man on his 99th birthday the secrets to his longevity. He replied, "For better digestion I drink beer. In case of appetite loss I drink white wine. In case of low blood pressure I drink red wine. In the event of high blood pressure I drink whiskey. When I have a cold I drink scotch.”
The interviewer was amazed and inquired, "When do you drink water?"
"I don't." he responded, "I've never been that sick."

And Corporal Clappy is not a happy chappy. Still, you can't be a saint with his complaint. No, nobody similes with piles. Still, it's worse for the nurse.

A Quote from"The Two Ronnies":-
"And in a packed show tonight, we'll be talking to an out-of-work contortionist who can no longer make ends meet".
(P.S. Any advice to assist him/her?)
Doctor: "Do any of your family members suffer from Insanity?"
Patient: "No doctor, most of them are quite happy with it."
Psychiatrist (to Patient lying on couch): "Now you must be completely open and honest with me if I am to help you lead a better life. What seems to be troubling you?"
Patient: "Doctor, I have this insatiable urge and compulsion to eat cocktail glasses. I just can't help myself."
Psychiatrist: "Oh my goodness, what, you eat the whole glass?"
Patient: "Yes the whole thing. Oh, except for the stems of course! "
Psychiatrist: "Oh dear, you really ought to try them. They're the best part."
Doctor: "Nurse Jones, did you take this Patient's temperature?"
Nurse Jones: "No Doctor. Why? Is it missing?"
If you enjoy doing cross-word puzzles, or even if you don't and enjoy a really good laugh, you should watch the "Two Ronnies-Crossword Puzzle" in a train strutting their stuff. Maybe it's just me and my "Old School Humour" but I think they are hilarious!

"Doctor, Doctor, My little boy has just swallowed a roll of film! "
"Hmmmm. Let's hope nothing develops."
I went to my Doctor last week and I asked him, "Do you have anything for wind"?
He gave me a kite!
This Guy goes to his Doctor and says:
"Doctor, doctor, I am really worried! I think I have broken my arm in several places. I need your advice. What should I do?"
And the Good Doctor says:
"I strongly urge you not to go back to those places".
This guy goes to the Doctor and says,
"Doctor, doctor, I am really worried, I am shrinking! I am getting smaller each and every day, you have to help me!"
And the Good Doctor says,
"Now, now, calm down. You will just have to learn to be a little patient."
Had a hearty laugh at this one! LOL Certainly hope your headache FINALLY went away!

I notice that you have a "Humour Section" at Earth Clinic.
A great U tube video is by the "Two Ronnies" (British Comedians; Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbet) entitled "How to Care for the Sick". Wonderful 1970s stuff as long as you are not too politically correct. Another one is "Doctor Death" also featuring the Two Ronnies. "Indian Cooking" is hilarious too. Enjoy! Laughter is good for you.
MAN-A-LIVE EC, I never knew there was a "funniest posts" page!! Thanks to your new section on wellness, I found that and am still wiping my tears of laughter!! THANK YOU!! That has got to be the BEST remedy yet!!!
EC: Thank you for reminding us about that page! Please remember to nominate our most hilarious posts and your favorite YouTube videos to our "Laughter" page... we haven't added anything to it in at least a year or two.
Everyone should read that page for a good laugh now and then.
Lorax or Borax?
Perhaps we talk about Natural Remedies at my house too much....
This week we got a copy of, "The Lorax, " by Dr. Seuss at a secondhand store. This has been a favorite children's book in my house for many years.
On the way home from the store, one of my little boys asked his older sister to read him, "The Borax."

The cold budweiser cure also works for:
A bad day @work; in laws who come to visit; after mowing the lawn on a saturday; after digging a washcloth out the toilet that your 3 year old shoved in; when the weather is stormy, when the weather is nice; after getting fired from your job; after the kids go to bed; before a romantic evening; durning a football game; before the police arrest you for public drunkeness.... the list could go on.
I know that hurt you and I'm sorry. I will not go into my personal experience. But you should put that excerpt in a diary for your kids some day. That made me laugh so hard I thought I was going to die. The nicotine patch and your writing voice are genius. <3

Go to utube and search 'Phyllis Diller breastfeeding'. Enjoy her wise advice and then check out some of her clips. 'Whose line is it anyway puts me' in hysterics. I need to find people around me who want to do this sort of thing...

These are fantastic! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
My mom has been suffering from Canker Sore for more than 6 years. She had been trying from A to Z nothing worked out for her. I found about alum through this website and it has been working amazingly for her. Be patient and take some pain killer before applying Alum on your canker sore. Do not give up!!! Alum is your cure.
Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!! I went to remedies and clicked on the laughter addition. I haven't laughed that hard in such a long time and I enjoyed it so very much.
