The human body is an incredible network of energy and intelligence. The energetic network that directs the operations of the body is recharged through nature. When ill health is experienced on any level, it is an indication that the energy and intelligence of the body needs to be recharged with nature’s intelligence. This can be done by spending time in nature as well as allowing nature to spend time in you.
Research is showing that people who spend time in green spaces experience less disease, have longer life spans, and feel less stressed. Other studies have found that invisible chemicals (called phytoncides) in some trees can reduce stress hormones, lower anxiety, and improve blood pressure and immunity. Being outdoors provides much-needed vitamin D and natural stabilization of melatonin levels. Japanese researchers even found that people who live near forests have significantly lower rates of lung, breast, uterine, prostate, kidney, and colon cancers. Clearly, the human body is meant to spend time in nature.
Yet spending time outdoors is not the only way to access nature’s recharging influence. Ingesting nature in the form of fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts allows the energetic network of the human body to directly recharge with nature’s intelligence. This is why seasonal eating is so important! Nature’s foods have been found time and time again to increase health, vitality, and well-being. The converse is also true. According to one researcher, “Regular consumption of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and other plant foods has been negatively correlated with the risk of the development of chronic diseases.” In other words, eating fresh foods decreases disease. Herbs, which are abundantly used in Ayurvedic medicine, contain precise energy and information that can be used to alleviate specific imbalances.
