Long Term Investment to Good Health - Being With Nature



Spending time in nature protects against a host of dreadful diseases such as
ü Depression
ü Diabetes
ü Obesity
ü ADHD
ü Cardiovascular disease and
ü Cancer
Ming Kuo a health and wellness researcher says that nature has the ability to enhance the functioning of the body’s immune system. It seems that there are 21 possible pathways between nature and good health.

Nature is like a multivitamin which provides us with all the nutrients we need. People! Do not forget that we are a part of nature.

The researchers say that nature switches the body into rest and digest mode. We feel safe when we spend time with nature. So our body makes long term investments towards good health outcomes, growing, reproducing and building the immune system.

When you do not spend time with nature stress sets in and the body is in the fight or flight mode. It shuts down everything which are essential for the smooth functioning of the immune system.

On the other side of the coin, when you enjoy indoor activities, it may seem to be good up to a point. But you won’t get the phytonicides, mycobacterium vaccae, negative air ions and vitamin D producing sunlight. If you find all these terms new, then simply put, you miss out on all the good stuff which nature has to offer.

So for wholesome health spend more time with nature.

Take care,
