Every tech-addict's guide to restoring health and balance in an increasingly IT-dependent world.

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.

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. 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.

From the Back Cover:

Think better. Think healthier. Think green.

The human brain is incredibly complex, but neuroscientists are discovering a key to optimal brain health that's ancient and remarkably simple: immersion in nature. In this surprising survey of the latest scientific research, Eva Selhub, MD, and Alan Logan, ND, detail how the human brain is inextricably linked to the natural world, and how we can benefit from enhancing that connection.

Offering an antidote for the technology-addicted, Your Brain on Nature offers scientifically proven, nature-based methods for reducing your stress, improving your cognitive powers, and boosting the efficiency of your exercise. Selhub and Logan persuasively demonstrate that the human bond with nature is vital, from where our children play, to the food we eat, to our faithful animal companions.

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 delivers an urgent message about restoring health and balance in an increasingly IT-dependent world.
