A growing body of research is being developed which indicates that individuals and communities interacting with nature are experiencing benefits to both their mental and physical health. Yet how nature produces these benefits differs among researchers and though consensus can be found regarding human interaction with nature a definitive solitary answer does not currently exist. Despite differences amongst researchers on how nature impacts the human body a growing number of helping professions are integrating use of nature within their scope of practice. Cities and towns are also increasing the use of nature within infrastructure and planning as the positive effects and impact of nature cannot be ignored.
