How to safely de-tox from IT overload--with the healing effects of nature Scientific studies have shown that natural environments can have remarkable benefits for human health. Natural environments are more likely to promote positive emotions; and viewing and walking in nature have been associated with heightened physical and mental energy. Nature has also been found to have a positive impact on children who have been diagnosed with impulsivity, hyperactivity, and attention deficit disorder. A powerful wake-up call for our tech-immersed society, "Your Brain on Nature" examines the fascinating effects that exposure to nature can have on the brain. In "Your Brain on Nature," physicians Eva Selhub and Alan Logan examine not only the effects of nature on the brain--but the ubiquitous influence of everyday technology on the brain, and how IT overload and its many distractions may even be changing it. Offering an antidote for the technology-addicted, the book outlines emerging nature-based therapies including ecotherapy, as well as practical strategies for improving your (and your children's) cognitive functioning, mental health, and physical well-being through ecotherapeutic, nutritional, and behavioural means.Details the back to nature movement and the benefits of nature on the brain and body, from reducing the symptoms of ADHD to improving mood and physical energyExplains the effects of air quality, aromas, light and sound on the brain, including SAD and sleep loss A fascinating look at the effects that both nature and technology have on the brain's functioning and one's overall well-being, "Your Brain on Nature" is every tech-addict's guide to restoring health and balance in an increasingly IT-dependent world.

Her mother was a call girl recruited from Montreal. Her father, a Yakuza drug dealer. Together they dominated the hospitality industry of Sapporo. After the crushing of a fifty hour Japanese-style work week, the commodities they purveyed, practically sold themselves to weary executives. But did their illicit vocations play a role in an horrific Hokkaido syndicate murder? One of many children, sadly born in hotels each year to homeless parents, her life was destined to be one of upheaval from birth. Later, as a youth, diagnosed with terminal illness, traditional therapies were no longer deemed effective. So in a procedure of last resort, her doctors implemented a shocking and revolutionary stem cell protocol. This prolonged her life in profound ways. Enter the suspenseful and dark world of child abduction in the Asian underworld, drug-related death in war-torn Africa and Canadian Arctic expedition. For Sahara, geography and circumstance collide, jeopardizing not only her personal survival-but ultimately every woman on our planet. The science behind "Sahara" In the absence of disease, the human body has the capacity to live approximately one hundred twenty-two years. However, in the presence of health threats such as virus, cancer, diabetes or the occasional bad drug marketed by "Big Pharma," eighty-five years is the higher end of the life expectancy spectrum for women. Men, statistically live several years less. Indeed, while some aspire to become leaders in politics or industry, we often lose sight of what one lofty fundamental human aspiration should be. That is, to live to be a centenarian while maintaining independence and presence of mind. However, two hundred years existence is not uncommon to some species already on earth. The Bowhead Whale-a mammal, has a life span of two hundred years. The Great Red Wood of North America live two thousand years. Why then cannot the longevity characteristics of such prolific plant life be extracted to prolong humanity? This was the ongoing topic within gerontology. Not to discover the Fountain of Youth-but rather a path toward perpetuity. It was this combination of botanical and animal genome that researchers in the year 2032 hoped would be the optimal synthesis to sustain two centuries of human life. In the Arctic reaches of Canada during 2008, a real-life discovery had been made that would alter the existence of womankind. A moss-but not any ordinary phylum. Having been dormant under the unforgiving weight of a glacier for half a millennium, it had sprung back to life after global warming melted the thick ice, exposing it to light. Just as Penicillin is a derivative of mold, a therapy has been developed from this bryophyte. Initially created as an alternative to chemotherapy, it proves to potentially double female life expectancy. But why is it effective for only women? Follow the travails of the unwitting patient/recipient as her fatalistic tendencies thwart her doctor's attempts at
