the nature cure

Want to send that pesky A.D.D packing? Take a hike!

According to a study published by The American Journal of Public Health:

“Objectives. We examined the impact of relatively ‘green’ or natural settings on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms across diverse subpopulations of children.Conclusions.

Green outdoor settings appear to reduce ADHD symptoms in children across a wide range of individual, residential, and case characteristics.”

Another study, reported in The New York Times, claims – “The researchers found that a “dose of nature” worked as well or better than a dose of medication on the child’s ability to concentrate. What’s not clear is how long the nature effect can last.” [Solution: when it wears off, get another “dose of nature.”]

Don’t forget the sunscreen….
