Alternative Natural Cures, Healing and Therapy; Nature Courses Degrees and Grants Online


Outcomes 2

A Survey of Participants continued






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 acronym when alluding to the alternative natural cures, healing and therapy process

PART THREE: Survey questions suggested by participants

PART FOUR: Statements by participants regarding the program

PART FIVE: Results of other studies and educational programs

PART SIX: Results of education programs based on reconnecting with nature.




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 fulfillments.

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.
