Naturheilzentrum Bottrop News – laughter not only makes you beautiful, but healthy too

Medicine for the body and balm for the soul: Naturheilzentrum Bottrop bestows a smile on its patients and readers

"A smile erases a thousand worries." - Although this Chinese proverb comes from the distant past, it has not lost its relevance today. After all, a smile is often actually the beginning when it comes to dealing with worries or hardships and leaving them all behind. Humor is therefore essential: not only for our health, but also for our peace of mind.

Humor, laughter, and a lot of joy in working with People are therefore also the ingredients with which alternative-treatment concepts and therapeutic approaches are refined at Naturheilzentrum Bottrop (‘nabo’ for short). This also applies, above all, to behind the scenes. In the current vlog, the team around the two Bottrop-based naturopaths, Farid Zitoun & Christian Rüger shows how funny it can be when the script falls apart or other minor mishaps disrupt the filming schedule.

nabomed - Laughter is the best remedy for stress

Recent studies show that regular smiles can reduce stress: Those who often feel overwhelmed by the demands of everyday life should literally bare their teeth in the truest sense of the word. "Laughter has many positive effects on our health - it can even reduce pain," says the alternative-medicine practitioner, Farid Zitoun. The University of Zurich has proven this in clinical studies: Laughter has been shown to increase pain tolerance. (Source: University of Zurich / UZH -

One positive side effect is that laughter is contagious - it is programed into us from birth and acts as an automatic reflex. "Laughter cannot be enforced nor induced artificially: it is part of non-verbal communication and can even be found in the animal kingdom – e.g. in monkeys or in rats," explains the complementary-medicine practitioner, Christian Rüger.

Naturheilzentrum Bottrop: There are more than enough reasons to smile n everyday life - you just have to look closely

Laughter is definitely contagious when you’re in good company: a study from the University of Maryland / Baltimore has shown that People often laugh along with others because they feel like they belong to a group. Laughter is therefore an expression of this feeling of belonging and underlines the emotional attachment of group members to each other. According to other investigations, even the sound of laughter is enough to make other People laugh along with you. (Original study source:

Knowledge from the naturopathic practice: You can have a particularly good laugh when you’re in good company

The health and lifestyle bloggers, Zitoun & Rüger from the Bottrop Center for Integrative Medicine recommend more serenity – in order to bring more humor and joy into your own everyday lives. After all, laughter can be exercised. This can then be used to manage stressful moments better. Among others, the nabo blog titled "The nabo blog: the power of pictures - this is how photos and videos affect our health" offers great suggestions for laughter ( /blog/the-power-of-pictures-photos-videos-health), as do the “flops, failures, and fumbles” outtakes on the Naturheilzentrum Bottrop channel on Vimeo and YouTube.
