Beneficial Plants

Studies show that exposure to phytoncides, chemicals released from plants and trees to help prevent rot and predation, elicits an increase in human immune function.

Specifically, natural killer (NK) cells, which are one of the body’s first defenses against viruses and cancer, have been shown to be positively affected.  These nature walks have been shown to increase the number and activity of NK cells and anti-cancer proteins in both males and females by 50 percent. We are wired to be in relationship with nature and our bodies respond accordingly.
