Research reveals the human body is sensitive to the environment. What you see and hear can affect your mood along with your nervous, endocrine and immune system. When you are in an unpleasant environment, you feel stressed, which causes a range of adverse health consequences. Conversely, exposure to the beauty and peace of nature fosters bodily responses that are the opposite of these unhealthful effects. Every aspect of wellness can be enhanced through frequent encounters with nature.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE EFFECTS OF NATURE ON THE BODY

BODY HEAT - 107.6⁰F 

When a person's core body temperature hits 107.6⁰F, heatstroke can't be reversed & prove fatal.

COLD WATER - 40⁰F 

Water saps body heat. A person would last barely 30 minutes in a 40⁰F sea.

HOT AIR - 300⁰F 

In a burning building or a deep mine adults can survive 10 minutes at 300⁰F. Although children soon succumb in 120⁰F.

HIGH ALTITUDE - 15.000 feet 

Consciousness fades for most people at 15, 000 feet. Although highland dwellers have adapted to have larger lungs & more red blood cells so they can survive. 

STARVATION - 45 days 

If a person loses 30% of their body weight, death is imminent. Although, disease would probably kill a person before they have a chance to survive.

DIVING DEEP - 282 feet 

When diving deep without equipment most people black out before reaching 2 minutes once they are below 60 feet. The best free diver made it to 282 feet before blacking out.

LACK OF OXYGEN - 11 minutes

Typically, a person would pass out after 2 minutes without oxygen. With training, people can hold their breath for nearly 11 minutes.

BLOOD LOSS - 40 % 

A person can survive after losing 30 % of their blood. After losing 40 % of your blood a person would need an immediate blood transfusion.
