Nature has a lot to give in terms of improving human health. This article from Dr Mercola shares with us some really fascinating insights on this.

Here’s a short excerpt that we thought we should share:

The term “nature deficit disorder” was coined by journalist Richard Louv, author of “Last Child in the Woods.”5 This is not an actual psychological diagnosis, but rather a term used to describe a lifestyle deficit that contributes to poor psychological and physical health.

Louv suggested that humans’ alienation from nature led to “diminished use of the senses, attention difficulties and higher rates of physical and emotional illnesses.”

It’s a thought-provoking article that we think you’ll enjoy so do give it a read at the link below…
