I’m Sarah Allely and when a bicycle accident left me unable to read, write or watch TV, I discovered my path to recovery was through nature. This narrative documentary series follows my quest to find out why the natural environment helped me recover from a mild traumatic brain injury. What’s the science behind my experience? Many academics acknowledge nature’s health benefits, and scientists are yet to pinpoint exactly what it is that heals. This series returns to the forests and coastlines to immerse you in the sounds of nature that improved my focus and concentration, relieved my headaches and lifted my depression and anxiety.
