Nature as Medicine

While it’s easy to think that we humans are separate from nature, we are as much a part of nature as every other lifeform on this planet. Our homes, city landscapes, and offices serve important purposes but they also tend to separate us from nature and ultimately, ourselves – which has been shown through many studies to have a negative impact on our mental health.

The idea that nature is a form of medicine that our bodies and minds need is rooted in our intimate connection with our natural surroundings and the life that flourishes there. By immersing yourself in nature at Exclusive Hawaii Rehab, we help you to reconnect with your own true nature in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world – Hawaii.

In our private luxury rehab for addiction and mental health, we will help you to find a new balance in your life that facilitates your personal growth through the power of our Nature Immersion treatment program. We use nature as medicine to treat your body and soul so that a new life foundation can be created – one that focuses on empowerment and personal growth.

Benefits of Spending Time in Nature

As we become more detached from nature in our urban spaces, several studies have been conducted on the benefits of spending time in nature. Overwhelmingly, studies and research show that the positive effects that we get from nature include improving anxiety, depression, and mood disorders through the relaxing and centering aspects of being in nature.

According to studies by the University of Chicago, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), and other scientific research, the benefits that you can get from nature in our Nature Immersion program for addiction include the following:

  • Reduced stress
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced negative emotions especially obsessing over negative thoughts
  • Instills a greater sense of meaning and purpose in one’s life
  • Improves and promotes healthy social interactions
  • Improves attention
  • Improves memory
  • Stimulates creativity
  • Decreases blood pressure and heart rate
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Reduces stress hormones
  • Reduces muscle tension

Moreover, exposure to the natural environment can help to improve various aspects of your body function. Interaction with soil microbiomes has been known to improve your own microbiomes which are essential for healthy body function and can help to improve:

  • Cardiovascular health
  • Gut biome health
  • Skin health
  • Respiratory health
  • Help in preventing Alzheimer’s
  • And more

The holistic aspects of connecting with nature provide further benefits through the phenomenon known as “earthing” or “grounding” which is an exercise done in nature that can help to provide instant relief from oxidative stress from EMF radiation.

Connecting With the Abundance of Nature in Hawaii

Here in Hawaii, we are blessed to be located in one of the most beautiful and inspiring landscapes on the planet. We are surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty on our 30-acre private estate with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean coupled with the 14,000-foot snow-capped dormant volcano just behind our facility.

The focus on connecting with the abundance of nature in Hawaii is based on the Jungian philosophy combined with evidence-based research and Eastern practices. We have created an ideal combination of philosophy and practices which culminate into a transformative experience in our Nature Immersion program thanks to our unique location.

Our unique location together with our healthcare professional expertise that allows us to provide comprehensive naturopathic medicine treatment and Eastern practices such as yoga provides you with a truly transformative experience in our drug and alcohol addiction treatment center. By connecting you with the natural beauty of Hawaii, our Nature Immersion program for substance use disorder and mental health will create a new life foundation.

Nature Excursions

While our private estate offers a bounty of natural beauty, we also take advantage of the majesty, excitement, and wonder of the Hawaiian landscape, offering our clients frequent excursions to all of the top Hawaiian destinations that can promote your healing, personal growth, and recovery.

The caves, volcano, mountain summit, and points of interest that you’ll visit will be not only awe-inspiring experiences but will help you to gain better perspective and appreciation for where you are in your life and what you hope to accomplish.

Among the activities that you’ll take part in during your nature excursion around Hawaii when not in our executive addiction rehab may include surf therapy, hiking by active volcanoes and waterfalls, swimming with dolphins as a form of dolphin therapy, and simply taking in the beauty of the fauna and flora at the world-famous botanical gardens.
