What is eco therapy ?


“A change in the weather is sufficient enough to recreate the world and ourselves” MARCEL PROUST

Our bodies respond to atmospheric pressure - we can experience different types of pain when the pressure falls - arthritis can be exacerbated - this is called meteor-sensitivity and occurs when air changes from warm and dry to cold and damp - the Japanese call this tenki-tsu, weather pains!

Sunshine contains vitamin D - we need it to build healthy teeth and bones but also to.....

  •  Support the health of the immune system, brain and nervous system.

  • Regulate insulin levels.

  • Support lung function and cardiovascular health.

  • Slows the rate of cancer progression

  • Helps to abate the build up of deposits that can clog arteries.

  • Slows the effects of obesity.

  • May prevent inflammatory diseases of the liver.

  • Can facilitate healing from wounds to tuberculosis.

  • Can be part of a treatment for skin ailments including psoriasis, acne and rosacea.

  • Can aid us in sleeping

10 to 15 minutes of sunshine between 10am and 3pm 3 times a week is easily achieved to keep you healthy.

​Ever wondered why you get the urge to spring clean in spring? It is because days are getting lighter and you are renewed with energy and vitality and this gives the feeling of wanting to get things done - embrace spring time and grasp the opportunity to get things done now!

Rain isn't just good for our veggies, crops and flowers, it's also good for the mind as well!
