Health & Hygiene

Relationship Between Environment & Health & What Are The Rules Of Nature?


What Are The Rules Of Nature?

Exposure to nature contributes to the physical well being. One achieves a great health in the form of reduced blood pressure, heart rate, muscular tension, and balanced production of stress hormones. The natural environment and viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. The environment can increase or reduce our stress levels, which in turn impacts our natural health. The calming effects of nature are known to every one. Planning an outdoor trip on weekends proves the importance of being outdoors amid the natural scenery, fresh air, breezes, and birdsong helps us bring our bodies and minds back into rhythm.

Studies have revealed that both the physical body and the mental body of human beings react to nature in such a way that it intensifies its sense of connectivity, reduces pain, helps deal anxiety and experience a deep sense of peace.

The whole universe from the mighty sun to the tiniest particle, the atom, is controlled by law. There is perfect order everywhere. The Sun performs its duties quite regularly. The sunrise takes place at a fixed time and so does the sunset takes place at the fixed time. All planets and satellites revolve in an order without violating the rule that has been set by nature. There are the rules of physics, astronomy, of mathematics.

Human being – the only lawbreaker

Similarly, there are also the laws of health and hygiene that govern our own being. In this vast creation, only human beings violate the laws of nature. Man alone is the one who breaks the rule, he disregards the rules of health, lead the life of dissipation and then later wonders why he suffers from diseases, wonders what went wrong.

He deliberately ignores the rules of hygiene and right living and then weeps when he is ailing from an incurable malady. Then he runs from one hospital to the other hospital. As his habit is, he then blames others, blames God and blames his own fate.

Disregarding the unchanging rules of health only invites diseases. The laws of nature are the rules of health and should not be disregarded. What is the use of being wealthy when you are bedridden, living on medicines, and being deprived of the great beauty of Nature all around?

 Why we fall ill physically and psychologically? We eat non-seasonal food and quantity of food that we eat is decided by our tongue. We sleep when we want to, not when we should sleep (as per nature demands), we’re all the times attached to our computers and mobiles. We’re spending least time with nature and more time with computer, TV, and mobiles, which in turn is disturbing our inherent natural biorhythms and throwing it out of balance. When we connect ourselves with nature outside, our lifestyle and biorhythms spontaneously become in harmony with us

We need to identify ourselves with nature, love it, understand its nuances, and respect its laws. We will get real and absolute peace.

Principles Of Good Health

Here are some important facts about Nature (our environment) and the health:

One can boost his immunity by simply walking in dense forests: The activity of peoples’ natural killer cells, which are a component of the immune system and which helps fights cancer, are significantly increased even if a just a day is spent in dense forest or in communion with nature. The achieved boost in immune cells remains active for a week.

Association with nature boosts energy: Being surrounded by nature boosts physical and mental strength with an increase in vitality.

Nature and the creativity: Enjoying the nature with the least stress enables the mind to have increased creativity.

More the trees in vicinity better the health: It has been proved scientifically that just living in areas with lots of trees makes a person physically and psychologically healthier. As the trees help filter out polluted air and release more oxygen or the bio-energy, the air quality in the region gets better. The second reason is the green color associated with trees and the nature that results in fewer mood disturbances.

Nature and the body pain: A study on patients who had undergone surgery showed that the healing was faster, the period of stay at hospital shorter and the patient had less pain when they had a continuous view of nature than those who had a view of a wall.

Nature and the concentration: Taking a small and quick break while at work and looking at greenery or nature improves concentration and hence the performance at work.

Nature and the depression: The area of the brain that is associated with anxiety and depression is subgenual prefrontal cortex. Studies have shown that walking for a minimum of one hour in nature decreases the activity of this part of the brain and helps fight anxiety and depression.

Follow the laws of nature. Lead a simple life. Have a right thinking. Expose your body to the rays of the sun. Consume pure air. Nature is your best doctor. If any part of the body gets diseased, do fasting, because when we fast, all the energies that were to be used to digest the food are now available to be used to fight the disease, to help strengthen the immune system and also in the removal of toxic substances from the body. Scientists have also acknowledged that a well-controlled diet reduces the metabolic rate and also the temperature of the body.
