  Happy Therapy(诊疗)

  Norman Cousins was a businessman from the United States who often traveled around the world on business.He enjoyed his work and traveling.

  Then,after returning to tile United States from a busy and tiring trip to Russia,Mr.Cousins got sick.Because he had pushed his body to the limit of its strength on the trip,a chemical change began to take place inside him.The material between his bones became weak.

  In less than one week after his return,he could not stand.Every move that he made was painful.He was not able to sleep at night.

  The doctors told Mr.Cousins that they did not know how to cure his problems and he might never get over the illness.Mr.Cousins,however,refused to give up hope.

  Mr.Cousins thought that unhappy thoughts were causing bad chemical changes in his body.He did not want to take medicine to cure himself.Instead,he felt that happy thoughts or laughter might cure his illness.

  He began to experiment on himself while still in the hospital by watching funny shows on television.Mr.Cousins quickly found that ten minutes of real laughter during the day gave him two hours of pain-free sleep at night.
