Laughter is the Best Therapy Paperback – March 30, 2011  

by Dr. Surendra Singh Singhvi (Author, Editor), Prium Graphics (Illustrator)

I, Surendra Singhvi suffered a stroke in May 2002 and went through many therapies: Physical Therapy (P.T – Pain and Torture), Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Recreational Therapy, Hydro Therapy, Laughter Therapy, and Grandkids Therapy. My speech therapist encouraged me to tell her jokes every day to make her laugh, which forced me to dig deep into my therapy, organize my thoughts and communicate in a way so that she did not get offended and, and at the same time, translate in a cultural context. Each joke made her laugh, and in reaction, I laughed, which helped me come out of depression. Researchers at a famous U.S. university have found that laughing is not only an excellent way to lift your mood, but it s actually a mini-workout for the body. This book is the result of these efforts of my recovery from stroke! I do recommend this therapy for everyone who may directly or indirectly have to deal with this experience! I have decided to offer the part of the proceeds from this book to American Stroke Association associated with American Heart Association. Please support this cause, by recommending this book to your colleagues, family and friends!
