How Laughter Can Help People with MS
























A new clinical trial is under way to study how laughter can help ease depression and anxiety for people with neurological disorders.

Laughing may be a way to a healthier lifestyle for people with neurological diseases.

That was the premise of a recent study that took place in Israel.

Neurological disorders, including multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson’s disease, can cause anxiety and sleep issues, among other symptoms.

The researchers of the study, which focused on people with Parkinson’s, said laughter therapy may be an effective way for people with these conditions to feel better.

There is also a new clinical trial that will study the effects of laughter therapy on people with a variety of neurological disorders, including MS.

Researchers will look at depression, fatigue, and anxiety in the participants, as well as the perceptions their loved ones and caregivers have about these conditions.

A laughing matter about a serious subject
The trial is the brainchild of lead investigator Dr. Ted Brown, director of neurorehabilitation at the EvergreenHealth Multiple Sclerosis Center in Washington state.
