Product Description

How to safely de-tox from IT overload--with the healing effects of nature.

Scientific studies have shown that natural environments can have remarkable benefits for human health. Natural environments are more likely to promote positive emotions; and viewing and walking in nature have been associated with heightened physical and mental energy. Nature has also been found to have a positive impact on children who have been diagnosed with impulsivity, hyperactivity, and attention deficit disorder. A powerful wake-up call for our tech-immersed society, Your Brain on Nature examines the fascinating effects that exposure to nature can have on the brain.

In Your Brain on Nature, physician Eva Selhub and naturopath Alan Logan examine not only the effects of nature on the brain--but the ubiquitous influence of everyday technology on the brain, and how IT overload and its many distractions may even be changing it. Offering an antidote for the technology-addicted, the book outlines emerging nature-based therapies including ecotherapy, as well as practical strategies for improving your (and your children's) cognitive functioning, mental health, and physical well-being through ecotherapeutic, nutritional, and behavioural means.

  • Details the back to nature movement and the benefits of nature on the brain and body, from reducing the symptoms of ADHD to improving mood and physical energy
  • Explains the effects of air quality, aromas, light and sound on the brain, including SAD and sleep loss

A fascinating look at the effects that both nature and technology have on the brain's functioning and one's overall well-being, Your Brain on Nature is every tech-addict's guide to restoring health and balance in an increasingly IT-dependent world.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nature and health, but not the brain 29 April 2017
By steve - Published on Amazon.com

Your Brain on Nature was well written and had loads of cases and data on the role of nature in our health. However, the data were largely correlative - I.e. the results of correlating health outcomes with everything from potted plants to views of trees in a hospital room. I was looking for causation more than correlation which is why I was intrigued by the title that mentioned the brain. But there wasn't much on the brain, possibly because not enough is known yet. The data on health and nature were useful though and I look forward to seeing more on the agency of the correlations, the brain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hike in the woods, smell the flowers, and then read this book! 28 January 2015
By Glenn Ellmers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love this important and thoroughly documented book. So many of our modern afflictions can be traced back to our disconnection from our natural environment in… nature! I already had the Kindle version of this book, and bought the paperback version as well, because I wanted to be able to hold it my hands and flip around, make notes, and use as a reference in a way that isn't as convenient with the electronic version. (Not to mention, the salubrious effect on my brain from reducing screen time! )

3.0 out of 5 stars You are expected to either take the information on good faith or leave it 24 May 2017
By Roberta - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The book presents interesting concepts, however, there is only very sketchy information on the research cited in general and no backup data (dates, statistics, methods of research) to show how the conclusion were developed. You are expected to either take the information on good faith or leave it. That is too bad. There is a lot of hard evidence that the concepts in the book are viable. In the present age of false news this book, which has important and helpful information, unfortunately reads like a long Facebook post

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Well-thought Out 15 March 2013
By Carol J. Michel - Published on Amazon.com

This is an excellent, well-thought out book that presents the science behind our need for nature without preaching or getting too technical. Though I am a life-long gardener, I still felt after reading this book that there are changes I should make in my own life -- change in my own diet and and make the time I spend in nature more purposeful. Everyone who lives in a city, works in an office, or spends significant time staring at a screen should read this book. It could be a life-changer for you.
5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 2 April 2014

One of the best psychology books I have read in a long time. The study of psychology in my opinion is most valuable and interesting when we can accurately and meaningfully analyze how entities around us interact with the diverse systems of our minds to produce behavior. The authors take you through the full scale of how evolutionary development, contemporary environments, physiology, and other aspects of our beings and world interact with nature to in important ways influence the human being. It is explained scientifically, understandably, and smoothly. This is a must read for all humans and once you pick it up you won't feel like putting it down or sitting inside all day.

Thank you for writing this book.

Best,

Om
