How to Live
A search for wisdom from old people
(While they are still on this earth)
By Henry Alford
The first one to coin the expression “Laughter is the best medicine,” is unknown. And whoever said it must be right.
Research studies from complementary and alternative medicine concludes that laughter can raise levels of endorphins and other pleasure and relaxation-inducing hormones and lower production of stress hormones.
How to live. A search for wisdom from old people (While they are still on this earth) by Henry Alford was named Best Book of the Year by Publisher’s Weekly. It is a humorous and entertaining book that embarks on enlightenment through conversations with those who have lived long and lived well.
So if you are a health provider, caregiver, a family member or a friend of loved one whose daily life is affected by Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or other forms of Dementia, try laughter as antidote to stress, pain and conflict.
Every month 4get-me-not.org will feature a book in the theme that supports the physical
(capacity to cope) and emotional health (care burden) of
families and caregivers of AD patients.
