From the beginning of our existence, we are born through natural biological mechanisms and we grow in innate natural ways. Our inherent tendency, originally defined by our DNA, is to co-exist and to interact continuously with our "breeder" and "nutrive", Nature.
We are often forget that we are really part of nature and that the natural way of life is the innate and primary basis for balance in our health, at all levels, mind, body, psyche. We mistakenly define culture as a human evolution remote from any physical element that exists, as we often associate the natural way of life with the primitive. In recent decades, we have developed mentalities and dysfunctional patterns of life that have removed us from the natural environment and essentially from our own inherent nature. Urban development has reduced the world's natural environment, while its pollution is constantly expanding, damaging the soil, the plant and animal kingdom, air, water, and food. In a world so full of standardized foods, "packaged" water, industrialized consumer products with chemicals and their "plastic-shaped" substance, with speculative goal to imitate the wonderful wealth of Nature we have forgotten the pure wealth of Mother Earth , our Primary Source of Life.
But Nature is not just a place to visit, it is our home. It has also been scientifically proven that our association with nature has many and catalytically positive effects that lead to reduced stress, improved mood and cognitive performance through biochemical balancing of brain hormones, but also to maintain and improve general health, mental and physical.
This is associated with an instinctive and inherent "biophilia" that we need to remember to find our balance again.
Our reconnection with nature and the natural way of life, with the help of the knowledge of medical science and psychology, is a powerful positive promising way of balancing the relationship with ourselves, the other living beings of the planet, with the elements of nature and our whole welfare in general.
