Healthy To The Core

With The Power of the Forest

Forestbathing is now a worldwide trend but the woods not only offer a feeling of well-being, but a scientifically proven health programme. Through the effect of the forest, illnesses can be prevented–entirely without medical costs.
As incredible as these findings sound, they can be enriching for our lives. In his new book, Maximilian Moser moves away from his focus on Swiss stone pine and towards the overall context of the forest nd relates it to our health, our social environment and our future society.
The latest scientific findings point the way to a climate-friendly future for a better quality of life and mindfulness in dealing with nature. For the forest can only be used to its full potential if we deal with its raw materials and healing power in a sustainable and conscious manner.


»This book is a plea for joy of life in connection with nature and a call for more mindfulness in dealing with the environment. After all, mankind can only use the forest to its full potential if it deals sustainably and consciously with its resources and its healing power.«
