We all know the term Tree Huggers. It has been tossed around by conservatives for years in an attempt to belittle those who have a great respect for nature. In fact in some instances I would go as far as to say that the term Tree Huggers is considered an insult by some. Well that should not be the case anymore.
As it turns out all of them were right the all along. Loving trees and nature, more specifically actually hugging trees has been scientifically proven to be beneficial to humans. Seriously, you can even be close to the tree to receive the benefits, but it is better to touch, and or hug the tree if you ask me.
The whole scenario here has to do with vibrational frequency. Every living thing vibrates at a specific frequency, and the frequencies of plants and trees can have very positive effects on our physical well-being.
In one experiment individuals that drank water that had a 10hz frequency run through it, effectively changing the frequency of the water, displayed changes in blood coagulation rates upon drinking.
In a recent book by author Matthew Silvestone entitled “Blinded By Science” he shows how scientifically trees can improve various heath conditions such as depression, ADHD, concentration and other mental illness.
Hugging Trees Helps
He also sites many different studies that show primarily that children do better in green environments. The children exhibited a greater use of imagination while playing, and also function better emotionally.
The vibrational theory is backed up numerous times throughout the book by a number of scientific studies to provide convincing proof that tree huggers we right after all. In one report the following was stated:
“safe, green spaces may be as effective as prescription drugs in treating some forms of mental illnesses”
Damanhur, an intentional scientific community in Italy, is also doing some interesting studies on the vibrational frequencies of trees. This peaceful beautiful village is home to something very special and to some may be hard to believe. They have a laboratory in the woods that is home to a beautiful choir of singing trees.
The researchers at Damanhur have invented and developed equipment that can capture electromagnetic changes on the surface of leaves and roots, transforming them into actual sounds. The amazing part of this experiment is the fact that the trees appear to change their electrical responses via feedback.
Also they seem to be demonstrate awareness and show preference for certain styles of music over others. These amazing plants and trees of Damanhur have become the object of much interest worldwide. So much that musicians from around the world are eager to perform to the “music” that the trees create at what have been dubbed “Plant Concerts.”
