Science says that trees do well and make you happy

Woods, green meadows and even flower gardens are a panacea for man. But the man is good for plants too.

If in the mountains, in the middle of a forest or a green lawn, you have experienced a feeling of particular well-being, you know that it is not just an impression. It happens to everyone. And the reason is scientific. It is statistically and scientifically proven that the contact of human beings with nature, in particular with plants, brings benefits.

In recent years research on the interrelationship between humans and plants that investigate physical and biological mechanisms is intensifying. Like any other living organism, the plant has a substantial bio-energetic component that allows it to be in harmony with its surroundings.

The theory of eco-designer Marco Nieri called 'Bioenergetic Landscapes' shows that trees emit electromagnetic fields among which are detectable frequencies analogous to those emitted by the cells of our organs, and therefore able to create an interaction with the human organism.

IThe quality of the "human-plant" interaction depends on the particular tree species: each type of plant has a different influence on the various human organs. Some species are very beneficial, while others have been 'disturbing'. It has been shown, for example, that the lime tree is very beneficial especially for the nervous system, mucous membranes and kidneys, while if you are near an oak tree you get an improvement in the cardiovascular and immune system.

Through the use of modern bio-electric instruments, capable of instantly measuring the body's reaction, the effects due to human-tree contact have been demonstrated. In particular, with the bio-electrography GDV of Professor Korotkov of the University of St. Petersburg, it was found the instantaneous increase of the energetic parameters of a human organism placed in an area of influence with a beneficial arboreal species. The therapeutic effect is temporary, its duration varies depending on a number of factors such as the initial state, the quality of the place, the type and size of the plant and, of course, also from the time of persistence in the area of influence. It is certain that the longer you can stop near the plants, the greater the benefits, but it is already enough ten minutes to find benefit.

IBut the most surprising aspect is that, on the basis of the measurements made, it has been observed that it is not only us men who find benefit from contact with a tree, as the benefit is mutual. According to Nieri, in fact, the contact between plant and man causes energy feedback that transmits our biological information to the tree. It is possible to measure the energetic reaction on the frequencies of the nervous and immune system of the tree, which responds by modifying the response values in relation to whether or not it likes contact. Plants generally have a positive reaction to our presence.

This should make us reflect on how deep - and partly unknown - the relationship of interaction between living beings and therefore also between man and plant. A harmony inevitably linked to the primordial past, which today is ignored, but which perhaps, in the future, will regain fundamental importance thanks to scientific research.
