The Tree Hugging Hippies Were Right After All

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.”

    I think that I shall never see
    a poem more lovely as a Tree.
    A Tree whose hungry mouth is pressed against the earth’s sweet flowing breast; a Tree that may in summer wear a nest of robins in her hair; upon whose bosom snow has lain; who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by humans like me, but only God can make a Tree.

    In 1968 my 5th grade science teacher urged all of us to hug a tree! I felt comfort and peace doing so then and think I’ll give it another try very soon…

    Your message and mission is very inspiring…but let us know more specifically what planting action is really resulting from donations in the form of your bracelet sales…still waiting for mine!

    I have never doubted this finding because I have always felt good amongst a forest and love to hug a tree! They make me feel calm and whenever I see a tree being cut down I feel physical pain and sadness.
