“Nature itself is the best physician.” - Famous Greek physician Hippocrates
Nature has a very positive impact on human health and even more so in an emotional and psychological sense, say various studies over the years. In fact, Frederick Law Olmsted, the designer of New York City's Central Park observed that the trees, meadows, ponds, and wildlife tranquilize the stresses of city life. For instance, there are studies that show that some trees emit invisible chemicals that have the potential to reduce stress hormones, lower blood pressure, and improve immunity.
That's why the Hiranandani Communities Horticulture team works round the clock to make nature work as a healing agent for the residents at Hiranandani Fortune City. From green open lawns, picnic lawns, and an aroma garden with a walking trail to a reflexology path, the long list of amenities use nature as a way to wellbeing and good health.
Here are some of the physical and psychological triggers which can benefit those stressed-out to feel at one with nature.
