The free loving, ecologically friendly hippies of the 60’s and 70’s have been vindicated. Science has now validated that tree hugging does make you feel better and improves your health. In fact, you don’t even have to embrace a tree to reap the health benefits.
Good vibrations are transferred from trees to humans just by being in the vicinity of the tree according to a recently published book, Blinded by Science.
The author Matthew Silverstone, asserts via compelling evidence that trees improve many health issues such as mental illnesses, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), concentration levels, reaction times, depression and the ability to alleviate headaches. “Up until now it has been thought to be the open green spaces that cause this effect.
However, Matthew Silverstone, shows it has nothing to do with this by showing that it is the vibrational properties of trees and plants that give us the health benefits and not the open green spaces.”
