    • 7. How Do Forests Make Us Healthier?  Recognizing those benefits, in 1982, the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries  even coined a term for it: shinrin-yoku  It means taking in the forest atmosphere or "forest bathing,"  and the ministry encourages people to visit forests to relieve stress and improve health  Research is casting light on how spending time outdoors and in forests makes us healthier: 8/12/2013 The Jahmganic Forest Spa 7
    • 8. How Forests Boosts Our Immune System  While we breathe in the fresh air, we breathe in phytoncides,  airborne chemicals that plants give off to protect themselves from insects  Phytoncides have antibacterial and antifungal qualities  which help plants fight disease  When people breathe in these chemicals,  our bodies respond by increasing the number and activity of a type of white blood cell called natural killer cells or NK 8/12/2013 The Jahmganic Forest Spa 8
    • 9. How Forests Boosts Our Immune System  These cells kill tumor- and virus-infected cells in our bodies.  In one study, increased NK activity from a 3-day, 2-night forest bathing trip  lasted for more than 30 days  Japanese researchers are currently exploring whether exposure to forests  can help prevent certain kinds of cancer 8/12/2013 The Jahmganic Forest Spa 9

    • 13. Spending Time In Nature Helps You Focus Our lives are busier than ever with jobs, school, and family life Trying to focus on many activities or even a single thing for long periods of time can mentally drain us, a phenomenon called Directed Attention Fatigue 8/12/2013 The Jahmganic Forest Spa 13

    • 16. Patients recover from surgery faster and better when they have a "green" view.  Hospital patients may be stressed from a variety of factors, including pain, fear, and disruption of normal routine.  Research found that patients with "green" views  had shorter postoperative stays,  took fewer painkillers,  had slightly fewer postsurgical complications  Compared to those who had no view or a view of a cement wall 8/12/2013 The Jahmganic Forest Spa 16

    • 24. The Forest Spa Experience “This is not a diet, This is a Livity”  We know that most diet programs don’t work!  It’s not only dieters who fail, the diet programs fail as well  Less than 10% of all dieters sustain any weight loss  About 50% eventually gain more than they lose,  and that the most common result—yo-yo weight loss  can be worse for people’s health than simply being overweight.”  http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/is-psychology-making-us- sick/201306/7-essential-truths-about-weight-loss-efforts-parts-1-3 8/12/2013 24The Jahmganic Forest Spa
