Forest Bathing Might Be The Next Cure Your Doctor Prescribes

Doctors in the United States have started prescribing forest bathing to improve patients' general health. Inspired by the Japanese activity of Shinrin-yoku, or "taking in the forest", forest bathing is a way of immersing oneself in nature to boost physical and mental health. A small study in Japan has shown that two nights of forest bathing resulted in a 50 percent increase in anti-cancer NK (natural killer) cells.
