Nature's Child

Healing with Mother Earth

Stars, trees, mountains and streams are all a part of nature’s healing treasure trove. There is a healing power found in the beauty of our natural surroundings. Physical, mental and spiritual solace all exist in the non-man-made world. Scientists have shown that the negative ions generated by waterfalls, the oceans and mountain meadows bring relaxation, energy and have a known effect on improving your immune system.

Slow your pace. Take a walk in a park or drive to a nearby lake or pond. Spend some time smelling the roses and feel the stress wash off your day as you walk barefoot on the green grass. Mother Earth offers a bounty of healing and renewal…even for city dwellers. To enjoy nature year-round, you can even purchase a negative ion generator and a CD of nature sounds. Give your Mother (Earth) a hug…you’ll get back so much more!
