Most Americans Suffer From Nature Deficiency Syndrome

'A recent article in The Atlantic highlights the growing field of ecotherapy, referring to "methods of cultivating the health benefits of being in nature." 

As noted by Florence Williams, author of "The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative," "Intuitively, many of us believe … we feel better in nature. But it's only recently that we've been able to see biomarkers of this change."

In the video above, The Atlantic senior editor Dr. James Hamblin investigates these benefits and interviews mental health therapists using ecotherapy in their practice.'
