What happens when people believe they have to go indoors to move? We end up with more illnesses and chronic diseases and stripped of our instinctive, wild, and necessary part of the human experience—adventure!
Our sedentary lifestyle has led to high rates of obesity, anxiety and depression, nature deprivation and digital distraction. Entire countries are burdened by the healthcare costs of preventable illnesses. Meanwhile the oceans are full of plastic, ecosystems are collapsing, and the Earth bears the brunt of our indifference.
WAY OF LIFE
What Melanie Webb offers in her Adventures in Mother Nature’s Gym is a course that can help reconnect our patients and clients to an aspect of their being that is undernourished and contributing to their depleted state.
Karen Koffler, M.D., Medical Director of the Osher Integrative Medical Center at the University of Miami, Miami, Florida.

“The philosophies and pragmatic instruction in this book certainly comport with the standard of care for musculoskeletal health.
As a member of the Board of Counselors at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery, I can strongly state that if the world followed the precepts espoused in this book, fewer people would require the skills that I can offer in the clinic or in the operating room.”
Paul Winterton M.D., Board of Counselors, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
