    Hi folks.I found the below article interesting..

    So i dont have to feel strange about hugging trees anymore:)Great!
    If trees can alleviate headaches(as the below article suggests)i am going to try spending more time
    near trees.As i get very bad migraines.

    "So what is it about nature that can have these significant effects? Up until now it has been thought to be the open green spaces that cause this effect. However, Matthew Silverstone, shows that it is nothing to do with this by proving scientifically that it is the vibrational properties of trees and plants that give us the health benefits and not the open green spaces.
    The answer to how plants and trees affect us physiologically turns out to be very simple. It is all to do with the fact that everything vibrates in a subtle manner, and different vibrations affect biological behaviours. One research experiment showed that if you drink a glass of water that has been treated with a "10Hz vibration" your blood coagulation rates will change immediately on ingesting the treated water. It is the same with trees, when touching a tree its different vibrational pattern will affect various biological behaviours within your body.
    This vibrational idea is backed up throughout the book by a number of scientific studies to provide convincing proof that tree hugging after all is not such a crazy idea. One report even concluded the following: "safe, green spaces may be as effective as prescription drugs in treating some forms of mental illnesses".

    I love trees. They have not relieved any of my worst symptoms, but I definitely feel more peaceful when I sit leaning against one. The ocean has an even more beneficial effect on my overall being.

    I think we all have a bit of Nature Deficit Disorder in this fast-paced and highly caffeinated world of ours, and could use reconnecting to whatever source of nature energy we feel most drawn to and inspired by.

    I love lakes, green grass and trees. I am going to start fishing this summer so I can be outdoors and just sit. The sound of the ocean and the negative ions is the best.
