Author, host and doctor Cynthia Shelby-Lane joined "Mornings With Ken & Bernie" today to discuss how she tries to use laughter in her practice to help people heal.

Lane says she offers some free guidance at her website http://www.conversationswithdrshelbylane.com/ .  Lane says, for the most part, most of her patients are very open to her laughter therpay, but it does not take the place of traditional medicine.  Lane says she strives to make each patient feel better by reminding them, through jokes, that there is plenty to be happy about even if these are facing a tough diagnosis.

Lane admits some patients do not like her approach.  Lane says that some patients do not want to hear her jokes, or laugh, and she says she can understand that.  Lane says many people with major diseases are not happy, and they can be very angry because they are facing a health crisis.
