It has been an on-going suspicion that being surrounded by or in-contact with nature can increase positive feelings, reduce stress, or even distract from pain relating to a surgery or accident. In a recent study those suspicions have been confirmed.
A study conducted by Seong-Hyun park and Richard H Mattson (Researchers from Kansas State University, Department of Horticulture, Recreation and Forestry) has shown significant evidence that contact with plants has direct beneficial effects to a patient’s health.
It’s been shown that patients who suffer sever stress from a surgery typically experience more intense pain and a longer recovery period. Currently these symptoms can be treated with the use of anesthetics and analgesics, but these can have side effects as mild as a headache to as extreme as death. Any alternative methods that can provide similar relief would be massively beneficial to millions of patients after surgery.
When the study was performed, 90 patients were recovery from appendectomy. These patients were randomly assigned to hospital rooms with or without plants during their recovery. According the the data collected, the study showed that patients with plans in the room had notibly fewer dosages of pain medication, a more positive physiological response (lower heart rate / blood pressure) less anxiety, less pain, and less fatigue. Not only were their symptoms less intense, they also showed higher signs of satisfaction with many aspects of their recovery compared to those without the plants.
