THE SURVEY RESULTS
Out of 122 past alternative
natural cures, healing, and therapy participants who had taken,
but not necessarily completed the course, 101 had intact e-mail
addresses and were sent the survey without being given previous
notice or asking for their consent to participate in it. 48 participants
responded. Phone calls to others available showed these 48 represented
the responses of approximately 88% of those who completed the
program of nature courses degrees and grants online
Presented below are the averages
of all responses received from persons who had completed the
accredited Project NatureConnect (PNC) 30 day Natural SystemsThinking
Process (NSTP) internet distant learning courses "Psycholological
Elements of Global Citizenship" Orientation Course for
alternative natural therapy, healing and cures; and/or "Educating
and Counseling With Nature" within the previous three
years. They represent 37 different occupations/professions, many
nationalities and ages 22-55 who were involved in nature courses
degrees and grants online
The participants responded
on a 1-10 measurement of agreement to statements about the NSTP
alternative natural cures, healing and therapy course and its
effects. Below, 1. shows how the statements were answered and
recorded. For brevity, the remainder of the statements (2-13)
only convey the measurement number (in red) to the nearest decimal.
NSTP was taught in conjunction
with Project NatureConnect (PNC) and the survey used the PNC

ABOUT THE ALTERNATIVE THERAPY
We are born as part of nature
and its perfection, its grace, well being, balance, beauty and
restorative powers. Nature is held together, communes and interconnects
itself as a global community through many natural attractions
and sensitivity to them. We inherit the ability to consciously
experience and register at least 53 of these natural attractions
as our senses, such as thirst, hunger, sight, reason, community,
temperature, consciousness and place.
Our culture/society educates,
socializes and adulterates us to live, on average, 95 percent
of our lives indoors, separated from nature. Over 99 percent
of our human nature thinking is removed from how natural systems
work within and around us.
Our 53 natural senses are frustrated
and injured by their severance from their natural origins in
natural systems and we suffer from Natural System Dysfuction
(NSD). For relief, our indoor thinking
attaches our natural senses to our less-than-perfect, cultural
relationships and technologies. This erosive substitute conditions/bonds
us to suffer our NSD stress, troubles and discontents.
To make the human nature adaptations
needed to improve personal, social and environmental well-being,
we must use psychologically organic tools that help us transform
our destructive bonding into constructive relationships.
We enjoy good experiences we have
had or will have in nature, backyard or backcountry, or with
our pet, or with the wind, sea or stars. Numerous quotations
demonstrate that great thinkers throughout history have long
recognized the transformation value and restorative powers of
good experiences in nature.
Our loss of contact with authentic
nature makes us feel stressed and lackluster. We are unfulfilled
and deficient due to our estrangement from nature's vitality
and resilience. This produces depression and low self-worth;
it causes us to excessively crave rewarding sensations and goads
us to excessively use artificial substitutes for nature, be they
responsible or not. With nature's grace, beauty and renewing
powers missing from our lives, we want, and when we want there
is never enough; greed, vulnerability, frustrations, discontents
and anger result.
A sensory nature-connecting
organic psychology tool, the Natural Systems Thinking Process
(NSTP) helps our human nature reverse the destructive disconnection
of our mind from nature and its resulting adverse personal and
environmental effects. NSTP enables us to genuinely reconnect
our senses and thinking to their balancing, nurturing and renewing
origins in natural systems. This nurture of nature provides our
consciousness with the lasting wisdom of nature's safe and responsible
When we add NSTP to counseling,
education and healing techniques, we reconnect our psyche to
nature's perfection and its restorative powers. This helps us
thoughtfully overcome our nature-disconnection problems and reduce
our personal and environmental dysfunctions.
