About Nature Dose

The Program to Naturally Reduce Anxiety

About the Program

My Nature Dose is an email program to reduce anxiety and worry based on sensory therapy, mindfulness, and nature therapy. All three have been studied in many different formats. Sound research suggests they are effective in helping many people reduce their worry and anxiety.

Specifically, the program uses grounding, the psychology behind forming habits, and mindfulness strategies to activate the calming parasympathetic nervous system and reduce fear of the unknown, loss of control, and ruminating about “what if” scenarios.

My Nature Dose is not a passive fix to anxiety; to work, the described actions must be taken.

My Nature Dose is not intended to replace therapy, medication, or other psychological medical treatment. It is safe to use in tandem with other forms of therapy and medication.

It is not advisable to modify your current treatment for anxiety or other conditions. My Nature Dose is complementary and there’s no need to stop other treatments. Always seek your doctor’s opinion on changes to your medication and treatment.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency or suicidal thoughts please call 911 in the United States or your local emergency number.
