Greetings,I am reaching out to the C&NN community to inquire about research focused on the use of prescriptions to spend time in nature for patients suffering from depression.Thank you, the literature surrounding prescriptive models for nature-based healthcare is sparse, I appreciate any insights you would like to share.Please feel free to contact me directly or through the Community Forum.Best, Kimnatureinstituteifm.orgnatureinstituteIFM@gmail.comSee More
The Nature Institute of Integrative and Functional Medicine
I began leading outdoor expeditions in 1985 with the Colorado Outward Bound School, sharing my time between the mountains of Montana ski patrolling and Baja California Sur teaching sea kayaking in the Sea of Cortez. I guided exclusively for over 20 years before returning to school to eventually become a nurse practitioner.
I created the Nature Institute for Integrative and Functional Medicine as a model of healthcare to bring people back into the healing surroundings of nature. We live in a world that is innately intertwined with our health and wellbeing.
The Nature Institute of Integrative and Functional Medicine is designed to work collaboratively with each individual so that we can support you on your journey to greater health. We will guide you and teach you how to maximize your energy to support your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body.
Our mission, Healing the Earth One Person at a Time
