The Green Cure by Alice Peck
How shinrin-yoku, earthing, going outside, or simply opening a window can heal us. Discover how going outdoors and spending time in nature, from forest bathing to a walk in the park, provides a simple and powerful way to improve your health and wellbeing.
About the Book
What we all know on an intuitive level is a scientific truth: the simple act of going outside is good for us – really good for us. It has been shown to have a positive effect on a huge number of health conditions and issues, from diabetes to depression, anxiety to arteriolosclerosis.
Down-to-earth and relevant, The Green Cure shows you that you don't need a lot of fancy equipment or vacation days to heal your body and mind. An afternoon stroll through the park, a dip in the ocean, or sinking your bare feet in the mud might change your life!
Each chapter combines anecdotes and literature alongside recent medical and scientific discoveries to show how nature can heal us. The book also includes ‘prescriptions’ for how to use the information in realistic, easy ways, so you, too, can enjoy the beneficial shift within that simply going outdoors can bring you.
On the Back of the Book
Did you know...?
Forest bathing - spending intentional time with trees - has been show to have stress-reducing, anesthetic qualities, and even anticarcinogentic properties.
Walking our dogs lifts not just our moods but also our hearts by helping us to manufacture oxytocin, often called the love hormone.
Merely looking at the colour green can relax the nervous system, facilitating deeper, steadier breath, which then helps the lungs to cleanse pollutants.
