I am a Registered Nurse and had breast cancer 4 years ago. I became interested in laughter yoga as part of my recovery. I was interested in it for all the above reasons that Dr Kataria stated. I can personally confirm that the laugher has helped my immune system, has helped me maintain a positive attitude and pull myself out of a negative state and that yogic breathing has been important in my recovery. I have been cancer free so far for 4 years now. I have not had a cold or been sick in 20 months so far. I have been doing laughter yoga regularly for 2 years. I started my laughter club in St Louis primarily out of my own need for bringing the power of laughter into my recovery.
